    Have you listened to the black box recordings I posted?

There are beings out there who could easily be thousands or millions of years ahead of us technologically. For us 100 light years away is too far and thus "unlikely" for anything to come and visit us. Our time here as a human race and our technological advances are so miniscule compared to the rest of the universe you can't even hold a handle against it thus you are a fool to convince yourself certainly that aliens have not visited earth.
    Perhaps this might help you understand.

    Interstellar space travel is much more difficult than indicated in movies and television series, such as Star Trek and Star Wars and the like. First, it is not possible to travel at speeds greater than the speed of light - the physics of the universe prevent it. Second, traveling near the speed of light is impractical for biological organisms. Collisions with particles even the size of a grain of sand would be catastrophic. An even worse problem is that the light from ordinary stars would be blue-shifted all the way to the gamma end of the spectrum when traveling near the speed of light. These gamma rays would destroy all biological life - even if it were in suspended animation (if that were possible). In essence, these problems would restrict the speed of travel to well below the speed of light. The most optimistic estimate for the presence of extraterrestrial civilizations would put them 2000 light years apart. With no intermediate habitable stopping points, space travel over this distance would be impractical. So, even if we are not alone in this galaxy, it would be highly unlikely that any extraterrestrial civilization could have visited us. What about all the "evidence" for extraterrestrials and UFOs? See the links below for more information.

    With all due respect -I've wallowed in videos of UFOs and whatnot for a few years myself- but to me all of this seems like wishful thinking. There's nothing substantial to back it up.

    I'm also convinced people atrribute too much ability to governments. After all, it all comes down to people. And people means amateurs & fuckups. No group of people anywhere, no matter how wealthy or powerful, would be able to come up with something elaborate as hiding aliens. I mean...seriously : the US government can't even host a website, how would they be covering up ETs for decades.

    @Zara : yes I still need to watch your videos :p and I will.

    I think if they had been here then we'd have been invaded by now. I don't see more intelligent species looking at us and thinking, "Wow, isn't that adorable? We should just leave them alone."

    One way or another -- whether it's exploitation or in the name of charity -- they'd have taken the reigns away from humanity and taken charge.

    It's possible, but they apparently didn't have it fifty years ago... which is odd, if they could build spaceships to travel interstellar distances. We can't build spaceships, yet we've got that tech or at least an idea of how it should be done + limited implementation.

    (as far as the actual tech, you're discussing the "invisibility cloak" approach where cameras project images on the surface of the shielding so that the viewer is essentially looking at what's behind the subject?)

    @Zarathustra, are you willing to make the case for alien visits to earth, gathering the most important facts and arguments from the various videos you have posted? I would read that. Unfortunately, my distaste for low-quality videos and radio talks keeps me from spending any time on them myself.

    I've already sorted thru much of the evidence to present you with only the best stuff out there.

    You should examine it for yourself, and then we can discuss.

    I've already done 90% of the work for you.

    Yes, because that's the only possible explanation there could be.
