I've read recent articles by knowledgeable people who claim that some very early paintings by Leonardo DaVinci contain unexplained shapes that appear to be similar to the popular description of flying saucers.

Over many years, there have been unexplained sightings by rational and sane people of lights in the sky, flying saucer shapes and disturbance to electrical supply and/or communications.

The sightings etc. I refer to are the ones which have not been explained away.

Along with hundreds of other people, many years ago I saw a light in the sky which followed the terrain at an even distance, and then simply disappeared. Never explained.

In my view, it would take a very brave person to say, categorically, that there are no aliens or alien visits to earths atmosphere.

But, in scientific terms, it must be admitted that there is no proof, for or against.

I suppose we must continue wondering.

All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my hand.

If the aliens have all of the proper visas, work permits and legal paper work along with a clean criminal record....wait humanity as aliens....well, as a species we have far from a clean legal record.

Can we be deported off of this planet?

After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.

By our estimates the universe is pretty darn colossal though. What freaks me out is how a random, everyday alien could've been sitting on the public transport rocket ship to Mxysiwjdkd29292-III, just planet hopping over the colony territory to get to work when some caveman was hammering away at a rock back in Earth's stone age and now that alien is deceased and their planets are bare and desolate, blasted from some atmospheric tragedy lol.

Are there aliens? Yes, 100%. Have they visited Earth before? Mixed opinions on the subject.

There is the idea that humans are the result of aliens messing with chimp dna and that is why we haven't found the missing link because there is no evolutionary link between humans and chimps.

Which imho isn't a bad idea by any means it's just unfortunate that Scientology picked that idea and became a crazy cult.

I guess I'm very brave because I am saying that no aliens have visited our planet.

That's probably because we didn't evolve from Pan troglodytes, we just share a common ancestor with them about 7 or 8 million years ago. In fact, Ardipithicus kaddaba and Sahelanthropus tchadensis are good candidates for a last common ancestor.

There is no such thing as a "missing link".

In the wide infinity of the cosmos? It's almost certain that there is so "almost certain" I'm more then happy to say "yes there is".
Visiting us on this blue and green and yellow rock of ours? Unless they've found a way to invalidate what we currently consider is an inviolable constant of physics then "no".

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

The title of your posts asks if there are aliens, then your post seems like what you're really asking is if some of the UFO's are of alien origin.  

Yes I would say it very likely aliens exist and no to them visiting us.  You don't have to be brave to make either of those statements.

I think it's a big leap to jump from unexplained lights or objects in the sky to extraterrestrials.  Once the mundane is eliminated, I think the only proper answer to. "What else could it be?" is"We just don't know."

Somewhere out in the vastness of the universe aliens most likely exist.

As to the question of have aliens ever visited us, there's no definitive evidence (so far). It's certainly not an impossible scenario...but it's not a 'done deal' like you see on some TV shows (*cough* Ancient Aliens* cough*).

Thing is one can never completely eliminate the mundane.  There are always unknown third options. To be convincingly extraordinary is not achieved by eliminating all other options.  Holmes had that wrong.  The extraordinary requires its own evidence, and the more extraordinary it is the more evidence is needed.

Are there aliens? Somewhere in the vastness of space there could be.

Have they developed to the point where they have mastered intergalactic journeys? Potentially some might.

So if  there are aliens that have mastered traversing the universe,out of all the millions of planets, have they visited earth?  I think there is no evidence to suggest they have.

We have no information so we can't say either way.

Two things I do know. A lot of people really want there to be other life in the universe, and it's very unpopular to say that you don't have enough information to declare whether it exists or not.
