Gotta say, I dont follow one single belief system as theres no proof to definitively prove any of them, BUT...theres far more proof of a God than little green men.
It isnt about denying ignorance, its about seeing the truth when its right in front of your face. There are MAJOR hurdles to the belief we are being visited. Forget the length of travel time, forget the fuel needs to cover a light year. How is it since Roswell, people are still being abducted? With an advanced technology it would be ignorant to assume that an alien race is still studying human anatomy 70 years later. It appears these aliens have also not figured out the cow anatomy either because mutilation has been going on for 50 years too.
So they come to our planet to dissect cows and put tracker devices in humans, as well as steal our sperm and eggs...and yet, not one picture of an alien. Not one verifyable video. No spacecraft shot down and no underground alien base has been found. No bones, no dna, jewelry, clothing...not one piece of information to even lend credence to UFO's being anything other than Unidentified.
We have never gotten a radio message, no taking over the airwaves to say,"we come in peace", no alien war between good and bad like many claim, no envoy from The Galactic Federation of Light...there is absolutely zero proof. In fact, the evidence is so speculative and open to interperetation that it wouldnt even win a civil suit in court.
UFO believers point to the Drake equation to further their agenda. Again, math does not prove the possibility of anything no matter how many x's to the tenth power or other symbols are included. It muddies the waters. In fact, when confronted with any of the above gaping holes in UFO-ology, the ignorant believer throws more claims to muddy the waters...many of them sounding worse than Scientology.
I ask,"Why come to Earth for years and years to study us but the aliens never reveal themselves?" The ignorant reply is anywhere from,"They arent allowed to interfere with humans" to ,"They are studying our weaknesses". Really? By coming here and letting us film supposed spacecraft, they are interfering. Also, if it takes an interstellar species thousands of years to figure out human anatomy, we shouldnt fear them at all. Doesnt it make far more sense that a malevolent alien species would just bombard us with a virus from space than wipe us out Independence Day style? If they are nice, why kidnap people? For that matter, why dont they grow their own people instead of kidnapping anyway?
No, it is not those of us that dis-believe in aliens who are the ignorant ones. Ignorance is continuing to believe something when the proof against outweighs the proof for. In the case of aliens, there IS NO PROOF. Not one iota. Theres things people SAY prove their existence, but if it were really PROOF, thered be no need for the discussion on ignorance would there?
When you or anyone else has any proof whatsoever besides grainy YT vids, speculation, math problems, opinions, thousand year old rock paintings, please disclose. Until then, please refrain from calling those of us who dont believe your beliefs ignorant. Thats just ignorant.
