_Of course_ the presence of extraterrestrial visitors is not
"undeniable". It is denied all the time, and that was precisely
my point. My point was further that future scientists may well
judge the denial an exercise in denial of historic proportions.

Whether "we can actually assume [ETs] don't exist and still live
our lives," of course, says nothing in particular, except that
so far we appear to have done so without too much trouble,
except for the regular expenditure of energy devoted to making
sure that potential evidence isn't seriously considered or
investigated. Whether we can continue to assume the non-presence
of ETs forever remains to be seen.
