Official said on national TV that aliens do exist? And everyone accepts it? I mean what would be your purpose as an investigator to go out and prove that its real when everyone believes you now? And if they are real its kind of like so what?
And if you were an alien and you had a peaceful beautiful planet and the aliens looked like humans why would you want to even visit Earth? For what? And if you were an alien wouldn't you find it stupid that people on Earth are spending a lot of money just to look for your planet?
1. What other choice does everyone have if not to accept or debate it
2. If we are part of this planet there must be someone who's part of another. It will be very shallow to think that it doesn't and also I'd rather earn for my family and well being of others who need it rather than running after aliens or even debating it ;) ofcourse unless it's my paying job and / or they come visiting
3. Don't we have a beautiful planet and got everything we need, yet we are busy trying to figure out life on other planets aren't we? Guess that's either human nature or the nature of anything that has life (and mobility - plants don't get adventerous or maybe they do but can't go anywhere :D) to be inquisitive and stretch their limits - that's how we've progressed from dinosaurs and apes :D
4. Money or trade may not be a concept in another planet ;) and also if I were an alien I'd be happy to see someone different and friendly (if they are)
Just because someone says something exists with no reasons behind it, there's no reason to believe them otherwise you have to apply the same faulty logic to other ideas
It's their claim so they have the burden of proof, It's not up to me to prove/disprove their irrational ideas(priests, psychics haven't really tried to 'actually' prove anything even though a lot of people believe in that stuff)
I 'think' life exists on other planets(doubt they've came here) but I would never say it's a fact
-they're so far away we'll never find any trace about them - the Universe is extremely vast - beyond extreme, Mars is just the next doors compared to the whole everything (and to clear it up there is only one planet where is life in the Solar system and it's the Earth)
-they're either way more or way less developed than us, they might be just some bacteria.. they might also be something completely unimaginable
The purpose of being an investigator would be to find out more about aliens because we know very little.
I believe in aliens, but I don't try to convince others to believe. Believing in the existence of aliens isn't a "purpose for life", it's just an opinion. I don't care if ANYONE agrees or confirms my belief. I've personally seen unexplained "objects in the sky" twice in my life - *that* is what informs my opinion, not other people, and definitely NOT the president/government.
And by the way, this is a real sign in my town, haha!
