There still seems to be this illusion that NASA and/or the Government still has all-reaching control. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Or maybe there simply is nobody visiting us and whoever is out there is so far away that we cannot detect them with the means we currently have available.
You do make some very good points. Like I said in my original post...maybe extraterrestrial life is just too primitive at this point and does not have the means to travel across the cosmos to visit us. This ET might simply just be microbes on some far off planet or maybe there is a civilization out there but they aren't as advanced as we assumed them to be. They might only have the technology to travel within they're solar system. The possibilities are endless...
