Don't get me wrong, I'm a firm believer that intelligence life exists elsewhere even within our own little galaxy. I also believe Earth has been visited by an extraterrestrial intelligence more than once in it's history.
Like you say, the odds are pretty good, and a lot of our mythology could easily stem from such visitations.[/QUOTE]
I agree, but I'm sure other intelligent life forms look at us as maybe we are not as intelligent as we think we are.
Has any thought been given to the possibility that other life forms could view "intelligence" in a completely different context than humans? After all, any extraterrestrial life form would need to be more intelligent than us if 1) they have the technology to travel that we don't, 2) they did come here and 3) after seeing what humans are about they left.

Did you read the information in this presidential briefing to Pres. Reagan....definitely
thought provoking and interesting....it is a long read though......... http://www.serpo.org/release27a.php
A couple paragraphs from the link.....reading from this paragraph on is definitely interesting.......
The CARETAKER: Yes, Mr President, you can follow the briefing with the outline in front of you.
PRESIDENT: Thank you.
The CARETAKER: The United States of America has been visited by Extraterrestrial Visitors since 1947. We have proof of that. However, we also have some proof that Earth has been visited for many THOUSANDS OF YEARS by various races of Extraterrestrial Visitors. Mr President, I'll just refer to those visits as ETs. In July, 1947, a remarkable event occurred in New Mexico. During a storm, two ET spacecraft crashed. One crashed southwest of Corona, New Mexico and one crashed near Datil, New Mexico. The U.S. Army eventually found both sites and recovered all of the debris and one live Alien. I'll refer to this live Alien as "EBE 1."
PRESIDENT: What does that mean? Do we have codes or a special terminology for this?
The CARETAKER: Mr President, EBE means "Extraterrestrial Biological Entity." It was a code designated to this creature by the U.S. Army back in those days. This creature was not human and we had to decide on a term for it. So, scientists designated the creature as EBE 1. We also referred to it as "Noah." There was different terminology used by various aspects of the U.S. military and intelligence community back then.
PRESIDENT: Do we or did we have others? The number "1" would seem to indicate we had others.
The CARETAKER: Yes, we had others. Back then, the term was EBE and no number designation. We'll explain how the others came into our knowledge.

When I read the descriptions of the individual shows at the website,
I thought they sounded familiar. Oh, well, so what if the series is the
same ol' same ol'? I like thinking about the possibility of ETs, microbial
or otherwise, so I'll try to remember to watch.
