No, the question is not used to change the subject, it is
being used to debunk the subject, as if the government
would never cover-up the existence of UFOs so therefore
they do not exist.

The same applies for the other questions, distance is too
problematic so therefore UFOs are an impossibility, and humanoid
aliens could not evolve elsewhere so therefore same conclusion.
All of these and any similar questions are truly a form of
illogical fallacy. To support or believe in such questions
implies an illogical skipping of the first question anybody
should be asking, 'Is there evidence of crafts operating in our
skies that display technology currently unobtainable by

Answer this question first. Any other questions are mere
distractions this early in the game.

Just to show you how illogical such questions are as a
form of debunking, let me propose the following scenario.
I do not stand by it and am only posing it as a means to
eradicate such lines of questioning.

Say an advanced civilization sends a probe to our galaxy. The
probe travels millions of years to reach earth. The probe
abducts the first people it comes across, and takes samples of
sperm and eggs to build a workforce in order to aid it in the
carrying out of it's programming. The probe not only travels
through space at our technology's current rate of speed, it also
creates humanoid 'aliens'.

Voila! I have provided a means to eliminate such dubious
questioning so beloved of skeptics.
