I think universe is too big to think, that bipedal variant of
intelligent being can evolve _only_ on Earth.

And how about cases when people saw bipedal beings (in fact
humans) in 'flying saucers'? I don't see reason to believe that
_all_ of them just our earthly 'brothers and sisters'. And I
don't remember any case of contacts with these beings, when they
was referring their origin to the Earth. What amount of those
contacts is true and what not - is another question.

I believe this is not about that somebody is afraid. Just, why
suddenly to start to believe, that some beings are from Earth?

By the way - not only one or two types of beings was observed.
Then if we believe in _only_ terrestrial hypothesis, that means
we have few or more hidden civilizations on the Earth? How many?
And where are all of them are hiding? And how big they are?

I trying to understand, what kind of extraterrestrial evidence
we can have? For example we found something. Then how we will
know that this is _not_ from another planets, but from hidden
civilization on the Earth? What differences can be?

I believe, that one of evidences of extraterrestrial hypothesis,
can be Barney-Betty abduction case and star map seen by Betty.
There can be another examples, but this, probably, mostly known.
I don't see here links to earthly explanation.

Again, even if we will have body or peace of 'flying saucer',
what will be basis to believe, that they are from the Earth, not
from another planet?

Another my point is: if supposed hidden earthly civilization
exists and was able to develop such technologies as 'flying
saucers', what would prevent them to fly to another planets,
make  contacts with their inhabitants and to invite them to the
Earth? In this case at least some entities will be from another
planets, and some - from the Earth.
