It is both humbling and indeed exciting. I've watched a documentary recently, on Netflix no less, that had so much evidence in support of alien life that it would be rather myopic to argue against. Evidence from astomoners, scientists, physicists, engineers, ex-govenment employees. It seems that we have already been visited many times by alien lifeforms. Apparently the government have actual alien craft. And have been reverse engineering that shit for years. Which may explain the increase in sightings over the years.
EDIT. Yeah its sounds like Independence Day but the evidence is ahem astronomical.
