Imagine the scenario. Alien beings from the far flung depths of space, travel for trillions of miles to reach Planet Earth. When they arrive here what do they do? They fly around in our atmosphere, in their brighly lit space craft. They don't land and make themselves known to the locals. They don't land and make themselves known to the wider world.
In the Middle Ages, European explorers traveled the high seas to discover new worlds. The likes of Cook, Drake, Magellan, Columbus etc found these new worlds. What did they do when they arrived? They went ashore and made themselves known to the natives. They certainly didn't just "Float Around" on the sea and keep a safe distance. The Natives would have found these European strangers most "Alien" to themselves
So ET travelling the vast distance of space and "Floating Around" above The Earth. Come on, it's not on is it?
someone please explain the purpose of digging up a metal, melting it, and then putting it back underground in bunkers.
The empirical data related to a particular subset of UFO reports suggests that apparently intelligently-controlled manufactured objects are being seen that display characteristics not replicable by human technology. I would never claim the ETH is a fact.[...]It's a rational hypothesis.

The entire idea of aliens is based on assumption and speculation.
There is no evidence of aliens, no UFO footage that demonstrates their existence, no real scientific evidence for the ancient alien theory...
So hello pot, thanks for calling the kettle black.
I agree with the OP - why would aliens travel the vastness of space to show up at Earth and do nothing? It makes no sense. I'm sure someone here with a lot of "research" into "aliens" can tell us exactly why.. Some on ATS can even tell you the different factions of aliens, the different spacecraft they use, etc.. Can one of these people who base their "knowledge" of aliens on speculation and circumstancial evidence please shed some light on this? Why do the aliens just fly around and never say hi?edit on 24-6-2012 by TinkerHaus because: (no reason given)
