"Unidentified Flying Objects"
Of course they exist. Unless you would care to identify them, and turn them into "FOs".
Secondly, you never answered the question about you not knowing about aliens logic.
: Now, let's say all of this is also a posibility, why not. After all, an alien's logic could be completly different from ours. But, don't you suspect something? What I see is, if aliens really behave like that, they are pleasing those people who want to believe in UFO's but have no real proof.
So how does this defy their existence?
I agree that there may not be UFOs, then again there may. People who believe they definitely exist, without 100% conclusive proof are as blind as the people who don't believe in their possibility.
Aliens are at an advanced stage in technology, where they can travel massive distances in seconds, like for example, in Star Trek. Then, coming to Earth would be quite simple, and they, like the Trekkers, would believe they are better off not interfering with us without studying us first. However, while they are amazingly advanced, they are like humans in that they are not perfect, and occasionally, more irresponsible members of their race accidentally leave behind traces of their existence.
Also, aliens might have reasoning for doing things, that we can't even fathom. Imagine a dog trying to understand why we use a knife and fork to eat our dinner.
To be honest, I do believe in life on other planets, for it not to be so would have to be an amazing coincidence indeed. I don't actually believe, however, that extra-terrestrial space-craft are hovering over the planet, and I don't believe that if they were discovered, that the governments of the world would go through such great lengths to conceal them. I also, on the other hand, don't completely rule out the possibility. As in, I think it's possible that it would happen, but I don't think it is happening.
