The being has to be a child of Adam and Eve to be human.

The question here is what is "life" and what is "intelligent". If something exists which is alien to earth, yet alive, I do not think it would resemble life on earth. I think, on a certain level, life apart from where God is known to have created it, is not actually "alive".

Quote:Though I do think the phenomenon is largely demonic though. One other possible conjecture (no evidence whatsoever for this though): ufo's are manned by our distant ancestors (probably from pre-Flood times) - that could explain why certain aliens are described as very much human looking.  

Most alien archtypes are very human, as you note, furthermore, they are culturally specific. They exhibit very human characteristics. The "greys" for instance have exaggerated human characteristics, sort of a psychological profile of what the human brain looks for in humans.

This, and the lack of actual evidence, says to me aliens do not exist, especially not in the way we imagine them.
