I know personally I'm not convinced that we are, or have been visited.
I do believe that intelligent life is out there, advanced technology or not. I'm just not so sure that intelligent life capable of getting off it own
planet is common placed at all.
A lot of people assume that if life evolves to the state of making tools, that it will one day end up in space. I really don't think this is the
case. There have been many times throughout history that humans could of gone the way of the dinosaurs. Shoot, there are any number of world, and
species killers that could of got us on the way. Beyond the fact that by the point of space travel, you have so many means to destroy your own
species. Who knows how many would be spacefarers ended their own existence this way? In all honesty, we could do the same ourselves.
The fact of the matter is, we have nothing to base any of this off of other than ourselves. We really have no way of knowing, if we evolved and
advanced quickly, slowly, or in between. Now, we can assume in between, but still have no way of confirming that. Are we warlike? Peaceful? In
between? I don't think that all people desire war and destruction, and the fact that we don't go around nuking everyone into oblivion proves that we
aren't warlike to the point of insanity.
There are too many other factors to consider, I think a lot of this recent AA crazy, and the universe is so huge idea has taken away from the fact
that, big or not, there are so many factors to determine when considering the chances of meeting Alien race that there is no way to really say for
certain that they must have come here, or that they must know we're here. The fact that the universe really is a "massive" place in my mind proves
that more likely than not, we will not meet another race any time soon, if ever.
ET out there? Sure, I'd put money on it. ET so common place that they have to have visited us? Unlikely.
