I have always thought that they are coming to check up on their children
No we won't. Ask a computer to write a play, compose a symphony or paint a picture without it being programmed to.

We will have technologies that allow nanobots to roam our circulatory system and keep our fragile bodies alive much longer than they're supposed to. And eventually we will merge with the synthetic to become super human/computer beings.
Are you anthropomorphing? Just because we are heading in a certain direction does not mean any other intelligent species would?
So, with this new paradigm of a technologically advanced species,,, why do many of you still think that little gray men from a distant planet would visit this planet?
Don't you think they'd be robots, nanobots, or cyborgs of some kind?
Why do we advanced Humans bother looking at inscets? Curiosity? Science? A love of life!
And if they did have godlike computer intelligences,,, why would they even bother?
Just thinking about where we're headed technologically starts to make the matrix look puny.
And then to look through that lens at the alien visitation theory makes it look like a childs fable.
