A good astronomy course usually cures a belief in aliens...at least the type that build ships and fly here.
Anything is possible....this universe is pretty convenient- if you can think it you can usually achieve it....
But traveling those distances....when you think that light starting at one end of our galaxy traveling at 186,000 miles a second, 2000 years ago, still hasn't reached the other end of our galaxy...I dunno...it's more than just big out there. It is impossible to comprehend big.
That's why you need an infinite improbability drive.

The amount of advanced technology it would take to get here....seems like they wouldn't have to get here to see us...
And the amount of technology it would require to travel here...and some dude in Oklahoma can just spot one in his backyard.....I dunno...
