Neither thousands of ufos spotted and especially not thousands of credible alien abductions. If it was like you said then governments would have come clean a long time ago. You can't cover up something that is out of control like you suggest.
People can claim whatever they want but it does not necessarily make it true. I have seen a few POSSIBLE ufos in my life since I live in the boondocks but they could have been satellites dropping from orbit or top secret military craft.
I believe in ufos and aliens but I don't like hyperbole.
Lieutenant Colonel Phillip J. Corso, who served on the National Security Council during the Eisenhower Administration and who was formerly chief of the Pentagon’s Foreign Technology desk, claimed that the production of flying saucer movies was actively encouraged by government-led UFO study groups during the 1950s. The goal, claimed Corso, was simultaneously to fictionalise UFOs (through their association with Hollywood entertainment) and to actualise them in the mind of the viewer, thereby acclimatising the public to UFO reality and politically manipulating their perceptions of the phenomenon in the process. Corso referred to this strategy as “camouflage through limited disclosure.” “We never hid the truth from anybody,” he said, “we just camouflaged it. It was always there [in documents, books, TV shows and movies], people just didn’t know what to look for or recognise it for what it was when they found it. And they found it over and over again.”

You want evidence, how about the United States Military. When the Roswell ship went down the US army put out a press release confirming they had found the crashed alien ship. That sounds like a fairly reliable source.
If the person is mentally sound, has no reason to lie, maintains a job, and their story doesn't have provable holes in it.....what on Earth is missing, from your point of view?

I made an account just to post this... It's reasonable people who haven't done enough research would not believe in UFOs being alien... Though, the amount of Evidence online is OVERWHELMING.
Maybe I'm just biased since on top of multiple UFO sightings I have also been within 30 feet of a landed crafted with 3 foot tall grey aliens standing outside of it. This craft was no more than 9 feet in total height, and about the size of a small room.
There was another major incidence of a giant 5 story tall glowing blue circle/domeish "craft" landing in a field outside my house during a thunderstorm at 2-3 in the morning when I was gaming online. The lighting would periodically light up my room with blue, then all of a sudden my room was bright blue for 10 seconds straight.. no flashing... no thunder. I looked out the window... and what do I know, I had a new neighbor. This craft was huge. It disappeared in a flash after about 10 seconds, at which point I was terrified and went to sleep. If I recall correctly, I was 12 years old, playing Runescape, Player-killing online - I was so scared that I didn't bother logging out. I thought I was going to die in game, but I woke up and noticed I was standing in the PvP zone still alive... oddly enough my next thought was breakfast... not the giant glowing UFO I saw the night before. It's as if my mind could not hold onto the thought.... and for the record, I would never log out in a dangerous PvP zone intentionally.
It's worth noting that every UFO or alien encounter I have witnessed was followed by memory loss and I did not recall the event for up to 2 days after... as if it lost all significance in my mind. The night I saw the glowing huge craft out my window, I went to sleep immediately, and if I can remember correctly I didn't remember it until months after, which since then I can recall it very easily. I sincerely believe there is some sort of mind-influencing technology they employ. My experience is that it does not appear that they are wiping your memory, but somehow effecting short-term memory storage...I have no experience and cannot comment on people experience total memory loss for hours in daylight abduction scenarios... I do not believe I have been abducted before.
Now, on the other hand, I do believe the government has many of these crafts in their possession and have learned to pilot them, so it isn't so unlikely that some you may see in the sky might be piloted by government pilots. I'm not here to persuade anyone to my point of view, but just to share my story. The amount of evidence towards the existence of these entities is overwhelming as it is, so much that a person would not even need to see a entity to know they exist.
For the record, I do believe many alien nighttime abductions people experience are often night-terrors/nightmares, as their described emotional states are highly similar to sleep paralysis... Personally, all of my experiences occurred in total wakefulness and I do not believe I have ever been abducted.
Needless to say there are definitely aliens out there. The only kind I have seen are the short-grey ones... [by]edit on 12-6-2013 by Siroz because: (no reason given)

Did you not understand the point?
If the point is "we don't know" (which has been agreed by most members on this thread)
Why is it not "OK" for some people to believe aliens may have been involved? Unless according to you the definition of "we don't know" is this => anything but aliens.edit on 11-6-2013 by peashooter because: (no reason given)
The point is "we don't know".
Well, actually we do know that the alien hypothesis is extremely unlikely...so unlikely that no scientist worth his salt would give it credence for a single second.
Have you any idea how utterly improbable it is to traverse the distances involved, for any life form?
Travelling at the speed of light - the speed limit beyond which nothing can travel faster, and no life form could get even close to before being crushed out of existence - it would still take thousands of years to go any appreciable distance within our own galaxy, let alone from galaxy to galaxy to galaxy.......
Keep reading your Marvel comics.

Speculation beyond this point, is a pointless waste of my energy.
