Yes! Wholly unconsidered and even ignored by mainstream
"scientists" explicably self-duped to self-serving insentience,
apparently, by "fringe morons and intellectual lightweights," is
a massive evidentiary pathway known across seven categories to

(1) the Historical textual documents glyphed in soot and cut
into stone, or otherwise writ in ancient inks on cracking

(2) the extant Artistic Historical from primitives on the walls
of their caves, through Middle-Age wood-cuts, to the
masterpieces of the masters on rough canvas and slick gesso
later on

(3) the quality Anecdotal reports backed up by multiple vetted
witnesses and corresponding radar

(4) genuine Photographic efforts prior to digital photography
provided by Dr. Bruce Maccabee, et sig al

(5) extant Physical Traces of landing UFOs as laboriously
outlined by Ted Phillips and others

(6) the "wholly Personal" evidence, if you have any as I do and

(7) even the Mathematical, reader, as it is described in modern
physics regarding the consequences of satisfying requirements
accounting for "the formality of the actual occurrence" of
something physical in this multi-verse (humanity "happened" so
"others" must) but, specifically, as it is described in
Probability One by Amir D. Aczel, PhD.

Alien intelligence, it would seem, is a certainty! Moreover,
the evidence, entirely if ironically in concert with Fermi, is
that they _are_ here! Pack that pipe and spark it, eh? "Where
are they," indeed.
