    An ever-expanding, infinite universe IS crushingly empty, even though it is populated by an infinte number of beings just like you.

    Thats true.
    However, its always, and not so insanely, possible that there was some sort of accident that 'revealed' them to us, in therms of wreckage, etc -- even Starbuck has a bad day once in a while.

    There is ZERO evidence of any UFO encounters.
    COLONEL PHILIP CORSO wrote a book entitled the Day After Roswell that was really good. Anywayz the forward was glowingly written by Strom Thurmond in the first edition! bwahahaha. Thurmond spends the entire forward talking about how credible Colonel Philip Corso is and what an admirable career the man had as an army intelligence officer. When later editions were printed Thurmond demanded his forward be removed as he had no idea the thing was a book about the aliens that are visiting us! To Thurmond's credit I believe he had no idea it was about aliens because nothing in the forward even hinted at the possibility of aliens. But still, it was funny and I have that book with the Thurmond forward.

    I do quarrel with the notion that government bureaucrats can keep a secret this complex for this length of time.
    Government bureaucrats don't keep the secret. Many of them slip up, write books, do movies and then are promptly labeled insane.

    Yes, and that's one of the problems -- that any such "mistakes" must have occurred only where there are governments capable of covering it up. That was mentioned above.

    In any case, there's not a shred of evidence for any of it.

    Well, OK -- but if there's only been a handful of mistakes, what's so hard to believe about that? Its more likely that a mistake would land in the ocean than anywhere else, and the likelyhood of the few that did not landed somewhere like here isnt' THAT far-fetched.

    Maybe, but 1) the possibility of something isn't evidence that it happened, and 2) if you accept it as true, it raises quite a few more reason-defying questions, such as why the government is covering it up in the first place, and why, once revealed to the human population (the government), the aliens would bother with continued obscurity.

    ESPECIALLY when they're supposedly making crop circles, etc..

    Of course not.
    But, if somoene asks 'why havent see seen 'x', then presenting a reasonable possibility as to why is not out of order.

    There's nothing worn with these questions, as they too have reasonably plauible answers.

    I prefer to stick with crash-landing their Vipers.

    That's pretty much the point. You have to add layer after layer of Copernican retrograde as more and more of these perfectly reasonable questions come up.

    Which is why you get all these nutball conspiracy theories about the government and the aliens acting in collusion to keep it hushed, etc..

    Attempting to explain the lack of evidence is by no means actually presenting evidence.
