I agree with what you're saying.  If you, as I do, believe that
they are here, then an argument that they can't get here is
purely rhetorical.  I did not mean to imply that we could not
have visitors from another star system because physical laws
prohibit travel over such great distances.

What I did mean to say was that travel between the stars at less
than light speed is impractical even with the time dilation
effect unless you are an extremely long lived race.  Therefore;
visitors from other star systems must either be very long lived
or be using some type of propulsion system that allows faster
than light speeds.

My personal opinion (unsupported by any facts or observation,
i.e., a guess) is that they use some kind of field generated
around the ship that causes the ship and occupants to have zero
mass.  For all intents and purposes, something with zero mass
will not interact with anything in this universe; therefore it
could be propelled with almost no fuel and could accelerate
forever if need be.  No shielding would be required because the
craft and occupants could not be affected by anything that had
mass.  Use of such a field might account for the blurred
appearance of most UFO images and, if the field could be
projected, account for abductees descriptions of floating through
walls, etc.  Likewise, we can never shoot down a UFO who is
operating with this field energized because an object fired at it
could not interact with it.  Having the ability to generate a
field that renders things massless explains a lot of the observed
characteristics of UFOs.

Thanks for the great explanation.  I can understand...the speed
of light is deemed to be pretty sacred by most physicists.

Thanks, Mike, for the discussion and the URLs.  Even though
thinking about light speed, quantum effects, etc., usually gives
me a big headache (I usually get caught in an infinite
IF/THEN/ELSE loop), I'll check out the URLs.
