Just imagine how our present technology would present to an
early Cro-Magnon man! I think it is highly unlikely that a
previous technologically advanced civilization would have
followed the same technological evolution as ours. Just think
how many of our major discoveries were happy accidents by
someone looking for something else entirely. Technologies
obviously are possible that we haven't even gotten a whiff of

Highly advanced technology demonstrated by UFOs and their
occupants look like magic to us because they use technology we
haven't discovered. That says nothing about where they were
discovered.  We know there is life on this planet. No matter how
much we theorize, we do not know that there is life anywhere
else in the universe. So it is really a stretch to say that the
technology of UFOs has to be ET.

Absolutely. We have no evidence for ET civilization, so why
assume that it exists? Why jump to outer space when the answer
may be right here under our feet?

I think it is obvious that we will see the creators of the UFOs
when 'they' decide to show themselves to us. Until they decide
to let us in on the secret, we simply don't know who or what
they are.
