Enjoyed your last message, Rick, N0NJY: your logic is inescapable.
This thought is consistent with the claims of alleged intelligence community informants that a small number of "EBEs" have visited this planet and that there have actually been humans that were taken to their home (on Zeta Reticuli) as part of an exchange program . . . this information was released among other places on a TV show called "UFOs: The Unsolved Mystery" which is available from Kodak Home Video, hosted by Mike Farrell (BJ Hunnicut on M*A*S*H). Two informants, "Falcon" and "Condor", who claimed to be workers in the intelligence community, told these stories. One of the cute things they said was that the aliens favorite food was strawberry ice cream! (I guess they don't worry about their cholesterol).
They had other interesting information, like the fact that their religion saw the Universe as a giant, living being, and that was God to them. Farrell claimed that Falcon and Condor's credentials were checked and found as valid; they were who they said they were.
If they do exist, they are probably smart enough to know by now that most humans don't listen to even the greatest advice! :)
