What are your thoughts on the Ancient Aliens theory? Have we been visited and if we have been how much influence did extraterrestrials have on our civilization?

I personally think Aliens probably have came at some point or anther, but disagree they had anything to do with the structures our ancestors built. I don't think we give enough credit to ancient civilizations we assume they were dumb or something and that, the Pyramids for example, were completely out of they're grasp

I don't believe aliens have been to, nor interfered with, the Earth. I believe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoo_hypothesis :

The zoo hypothesis is one of many theoretical explanations for the Fermi Paradox. The hypothesis speculates as to the assumed behavior and existence of technically advanced extraterrestrial life and the reasons they refrain from contacting Earth. One interpretation of the hypothesis argues that intelligent alien life intentionally ignores Earth to allow for natural evolution and sociocultural development. The hypothesis seeks to explain the apparent absence of extraterrestrial life despite its generally accepted plausibility and hence the reasonable expectation of its existence.

Aliens might, for example, choose to allow contact once the human species has passed certain technological, political, or ethical standards. They might withhold contact until humans force contact upon them, possibly by sending a spacecraft to planets they inhabit. Alternatively, a reluctance to initiate contact could reflect a sensible desire to minimize risk. An alien society with advanced remote-sensing technologies may conclude that direct contact with neighbors confers added risks to oneself without an added benefit.

Any sufficiently advanced society capable of reaching Earth would be advanced enough to observe without interfering. Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri is a good example of why NOT to go trekking into other worlds. Or history if you'd prefer.

I don't believe in aliens either. I mean, c'mon. the universe is huge, and there are amateurs with telescopes watching the skies 24/7. Even if the aliens agreed to visit earth via cloaked devices... what they never made a mistake for 100 years? It's not just that, if everyone on an alien planet has an interstellar aircraft, then teen aliens would do stupid stuff like try to visit Earth and break the rules. Don't tell me they've got an uber obedient society...

I believe aliens are just the new meta for spirits. Way back when, spirits appeared in people's dreams, and also appeared physically, did this and htat blahblah. Well, now that religion is now on the down, and science is on the up, spirits have to find better, creative ways of messing with humans (age-old war). So, heeeeeeeey now they're aliens :D.

There's even proof of this lol. Most people who are experiencing abductions by X alien race -- their "abductions" are somehow stopped when they start employing spiritual defensive techniques. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!?! Well, obviously.

I think if aliens existed, we'd know. We're watching for the smallest radio wave from any planet -_-. I know our tech isn't that sophisticated, but if they ever ever at least once, used radio waves in their planet's whole existence, then we'd detect it someday when it reaches us. So far we've found nothing.

Tl;dr: aliens are extradimensional beings (spirits), and not from another planet.

I think it's asinine thinking to assume that we are alone in the universe. It's simply too big for us. Even if we had the technology to travel at the speed of light, we would not be able to explore the entire universe before the universes' theorized end.

Whether or not aliens are visiting Earth however is a different story. I may be inclined to believe in abductions and crap like that if they happened to important people, not just Billy-Bob, liquored up and hot off his cousin in some backwater town.

I don't think they have visited earth, but I do think it's likely that there is life on other planets. It'd be hilarious if aliens came during the time of the dinosaurs and just went "fuck this shit" and left.

Aliens probably exist, there's no way we're alone in the universe, it's too freakin' vast to just be hosting bacterial or microbe life.

besides us, I'm sure there are living beings with complex intelligence out there- despite what some would have you think.

What if we're the aliens?

Like we're a colony ship shot out from a distant mother world to save a certain sect of the population. Or our distant ancestor was or something.

I think it's impossible to 100% disprove, but it's also a pretty wild theory in its own right. Just because a few things about ancient societies we've never seen at actual work seem impossible for us to figure out does not mean that the only logical conclusion is that aliens did it. I don't think we'll ever be able to figure out how ancient civilizations did some things. Too many clues have faded in time.

I don't think our planet is unique and the only one that has living things. The universe is huge and the chances of there being life somewhere else out there is pretty good, I'd say. But technologically superior aliens who came down and directed our race and other such nonsense? Who knows? We'd be the aliens to them.
