Interesting question Isaac and as the years pass by I am more inclined to believe that there can be no overall global government conspiracy to conceal
the existence of advance ETs visiting this earth. I did perhaps once think that when I was much younger and when information was much harder to come
But even before the internet age of the 21st Century I had already came to the conclusion that if there really was intelligent life out there that had
came here then visits would have almost certainly have been fairly rare.
I think life exists across the universe. Mathematical probability is almost certainly in favour of it.
However what are the chances of intelligent creatures developing to look like us, being able to detect our civilization before their own extinction,
traverse the vast emptiness of space, develop the ability to speak our languages and even breathe our atmosphere easily without assistance?
UFO folklore had this as a semi-regular occurrence in the 1950s - 1970s. Not only that, aliens often decided to speak to seemingly random members of
society. But that was heavily based around intelligent life existing in the neighbourhood. Now of course the trend is that "Ancient Aliens" were
involved in our pre-history in some way.
We know that life in the Solar System probably cannot exist at anything approaching the intelligence of many species on Earth have (unless they are
well hidden from us). So it seems that a couple of nations or even the Western allies could not keep something so secret for so long.
Unless of course there are just a few "real" incidents, buried under the deluge of fantastic stories from attention seekers, disguised by
mis-information and dis-information of hoaxers, and a lot less exciting than some of the UFO lore that has been out there for decades.
Perhaps one of those classic UFO incidents was really "the one" and perhaps the only time we've came across ET? In which case keeping the secret could
well be easier and as time goes by and even be forgotten. Maybe only a few dozen people were/are aware of such a case?
Imagine if in the decades now gone someone found ancient DNA evidence, a crashed craft, an unexplainable signal or even the very basic confirmation
that simple life is out there on one of other bodies in our solar system BUT it is dangerous to all life on Earth. It would probably be prudent to
keep it all under wraps until we could do something about it.
