While I am open minded, I really discount aliens from other planets.

Look, if other countries can "hack" into various places within our country, we should not be so naive about abilities o surveil this country, and to not acknowledge that is really a weakness.

The UFO fervor in late fifties and early sixties, which "it appears" had lot to do with our country testing spy planes like the U2, allowed for the same kind of talk. We cannot believe that others in this world are not as smart or sophisticated as we...it just is not so.

The warnings we have gotten over the past few years about the capabilities of others seem to be falling on deaf ears, and it shouldn't. It is being done to us, and we simply mock those who tell us that.

Pretty naive to think humans are the only special species in the universe, which we know virtually .9% of the universe. Just cause you read books, studied and pass test don’t make the authority on stuff we know little about. These incidents has nothing to do with Hollywood movies.

Probably the biggest cover up was Roswell incident. It don’t take months to clean up weather balloon That came down.

We humans, seem to have an infinite capacity...for arrogance/ignorance.

Those really are about the only reasons that can explain, the idea/conviction that we are the only intelligent beings in the entire universe...or that there aren't ways to travel faster than the speed of light.

Those reasons, and of course...religion(s) also.

Although intelligent life is likely rare in the universe it is surely out there. As the earth’s sun is recent compared to many stars other civilizations may have had many millions of years to evolve ahead of us.

Two of the smartest men I know have privately told they were certain they had observed ufos. One had seen a lone one moving about his airplane then flying off. The other saw a group at a distance. The LEO who checked out the Roswell area landing spot observed physical affects to the environment.

For those so inclined it is not too late to get to Roswell’s annual UFO festival. For those not into UFOs while I was growing up in NM the prettiest young ladies in HS and college came from Roswell. No joke. Must be something in the water down there. 2019 UFO Festival – Official UFO Festival Roswell Website

That's funny. I don't doubt that we are not the only life in the universe. Suggesting that we have been visited is faith based, as opposed to science based, thinking.

That sort of thinking is devoid of the distance and technology required to traverse the distances involved. Believe what you will but at least acknowledge that it is faith based and not science based.

Yes my statements are based on faith, faith in science, its proofs, discoveries, analyses and applications and faith in mathematics, statistics in the instant case.

As far as distance and technology goes I seriously doubt the human beings of even 10,000 years ago, who were just as smart or smarter than we are today, could imagine automobiles, refrigeration, appendectomies and other common aspects of life today much less smart phones, airplanes and our recent start in developing space travel via rockets akin to the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk and their aircraft. The sky is no longer the limit!

The closest star is over 4 light years away. I believe the nearest habitable planet we are currently aware of is about 12 light years away. Traveling that distance in a reasonable amount of time is much different than building a car. Poor analogy on your part. Given the enormous distances in the universe, the chances that an advanced civilization capable of near light speed travel would come here is remote. Assuming that the creation of wormholes is even possible, you need to ask yourself why would a civilization capable of such technology choose to come here out of all of the possible galaxies? Again, Occam's Razor is at play when considering the origin of UFOs.

I agree that when limited to light speed the chances of alien visitation is remote. However if we had another million or hundred million years during which to evolve and advance we might be able to get around that. After all primitive humans could only travel as fast as they could run. I shall stick with my analogies which I consider valid.
