Yes, there are still many who would instantaneously think you’re completely bonkers for even contemplating any truth to the title above, but that comes from a place of innocent ignorance.
It’s easy to dismiss something without properly investigating the subject for yourself, and the thought of an idea like this still remaining in the category of a “fringe” type of topic is unsettling.
The masses continue to ignore a tremendous amount of evidence that points to the fact that we are not alone, and that we’ve actually been visited.

There are literally hundreds of these people, from academic to political and military backgrounds all the way to astronauts that have been blowing the whistle for a very long time.
Scientific publications (many) have also been made throughout the years describing strange and radar confirmed military sightings by military pilots.
According to Herman Oberth, one of the founding fathers of rocketry and astronautics, “flying saucers are real and… they are space ships from another solar system.
I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.” (Oberth, Hermann: “Flying Saucers Come from a Distant World,” The American Weekly, October 24, 1954) (source 1), (source 2)
