I've read and watched tons of UFO stories. Lets say in that sample in not less then 50% of stories, same as in the one above, "space people" ;-) would be caught collecting samples of soil and/or plants. And, just on databases in US and France, there are 200,000 UFO stories over the last 70 years, which is roughly 2,800 reported visits per year. Obviously, reported cases are just tip of the iceberg. So, just for argument sake, lets expand my sample into these 200,000 that would mean very roughly 100,000 cases of "space people" coming to Earth to collect soil & plant samples.
That's one thing I can't figure out.
These aliens risk arm and a limb traveling across the voids of universe, where they face incredible radiation, collisions with micrometeorites, their technology breakdowns etc. just to collect few bacteria from soil? And that's really their dominant activity as observed by UFO witnesses. I completely can't figure it out. If they were plundering, burning and killing everybody, that would be more normal. For example, in the above case, they landed in a park in an urban area, they were out of a ship in a hurry, they wore protective suits and they were finished with their extra vehicular activity in less then one minute.
Obviously, they were apprehensive about any humans approaching them and they were showing all signs that they consider their own activity risky and they worked in a hurry. Why then they take all these risks just for sake of few bugs in the soil?
Anybody has any ideas? What can be so special about bugs in the soil?
