I think the answer to Musk's question is that for many people aliens are an established fact, which is established by the countless movies and uncritical news articles. Just like psychic mediums are an established fact borne out by the numerous crime shows on TV where psychics are for real.

Reading the posts of idiots responding to him is both hilarious and depressing. Just like a number of science threads herein!!

Zombies are real also, in case you had forgotten that factoid. Just look at all the books and movies about them.
