Sometimes, Ed, the absence of evidence is indeed absence of evidence. As I've observed before, you're just putting your own spin on tired, discredited esoteric beliefs about secret races, the sort of thing that has long found expression in myths of lost continents, the hollow earth, the Shaver mystery, Jessup's space-faring pygmies, and all the rest - not to mention a considerable body of fantasy and science-fiction literature. I wrote about such things at length in my book Hidden Realms (Visible Ink Press, 2010), in case any listfolk are interested in studying the background. In short, what you're doing is both baseless _and_ unoriginal. If ufologists had wanted to marginalize themselves even more than they already are, they would have embraced this nonsense and become the equivalents of flat-earthers. It's a relief that you've had so little success in recruiting others to your cause, frankly. Jerry Clark Listen to 'Strange Days...
