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.

†Elon is not an authority on everything concerning outer space or science. He is just another very intelligent person who has his own opinions,like everyone else. .intelligent people often lack common sense. Just because you can't touch ,see or hold something doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Yes that is true, however he has more common sense than most people. †That is one thing you can't accuse Elon Musk of lacking is common sense. †And he's right, all we have are fuzzy pictures and anecdotes, the most often repeated seem to be the most unhinged. † Yes, there probably is another civilization or many somewhere out there, but there is no reason I can think of for them to waste time on us. †As for UAP, not aliens from outer space, but something from a non-physical (as we currently understand it) could be messing with us, or we could be messing with ourselves. †Our consciousness does ...

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