Elon Musk plays down likelihood of ET visitors

The SpaceX CEO does not appear particularly convinced by the possibility that we are being visited by aliens.
Despite spending most of his time looking towards the stars, Musk has expressed surprisingly little interest in the UFO phenomenon and does not believe that intelligent aliens are visiting Earth.

In a series of Tweets this week, he reiterated his position on the matter in response to a Tweet by Maria Bartiromo - a Fox News anchor who recently asked President Donald Trump about UFOs.

"I have seen no evidence of an advanced civilization visiting Earth," Musk Tweeted in response.

"Fuzzy pics that are worse than a 7/11 security cam frame grab don't count!"
"There are literally >1000% more cameras than 10 years ago, but still zero clear photos."

Musk grabbed attention on the social media platform back in August when he put out a presumably tongue-in-cheek Tweet that read "Aliens built the pyramids obv."

His Tweet immediately generated a slew of replies, with some users criticizing his remark and others wondering if he knows something the rest of us don't.

Egypt's Minister of International Co-operation Rania al-Mashat was particularly vocal - even going so far as to invite Musk to Egypt to see for himself that aliens were not involved.

Given Musk's skepticism on UFOs however, it is likely that his pyramids Tweet was intended in jest.

So, intelligent people often lack prejudice. Furthermore, opinions aren't equal.

Considering the follow-up tweets in that Twitter feed, I'm pretty sure he was being facetious.

If you think about it and who he is the technology that people think belongs to aliens could be nothing more than our own. Just like the closing of project blue book. Maybe they found what they were looking for. I don’t think it was other worldly. We came very close to a Nazi run government based on advances in German technology.

All we have is fuzzy pics?  What about the radar returns in some notable cases? That backed up eye witness accounts. What of the mass sightings? If Elon really had looked into this then I believe he would have chosen different words to express his disbelief.

Elon might be high when he said aliens built pyramids.

He is correct to be sceptical in this instance. Although not sure why his opinion would be considered any more important than the next persons?

He was joking!  He is a nerd and he was joking.  If you were a nerd you would know that.
