Former NASA astronaut, and man on the moon, Edgar Mitchell, recently claimed that aliens have visited Earth, and governments have engineered a cover-up for over 60 years. The following quotes are from this article:
Dr. Mitchell, along with with Apollo 14 commander Alan Shepard, holds the record for the longest ever moon walk, at nine hours and 17 minutes following their 1971 mission.
“I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we’ve been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real,” Dr. Mitchell said.
“It’s been well covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so, but slowly it’s leaked out and some of us have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it.
“I’ve been in military and intelligence circles, who know that beneath the surface of what has been public knowledge, yes – we have been visited. Reading the papers recently, it’s been happening quite a bit. This is really starting to open up. I think we’re headed for real disclosure and some serious organisations are moving in that direction.”
Acceptance of extraterrestrial life here on Earth is a given for many, myself included. That being written, there a lot of cats out there who aren’t ready for some shit that heavy. Many reject the prospect on religious grounds (i.e., fixed-Earthers and Genesis literalists), some invoke the theory of cosmic impossibility, and others point to the dearth of scientific and media coverage as reason enough to scoff at the X-files.
One thing about me is that I have held contradictory positions on just about every imaginable debatable subject. The benefit of having held diametrically opposed viewpoints, at differing points in time, has allowed me a measure of of detached objectivity. Regarding ETs and UFOs, for most of my life, I was a real skeptical, proof-is-the-pudding, seeing-is-believing type of a bloke. As a teenager, my Granddad gave me a book on the 1947 Roswell crash. I blew through it like Hemingway’s fictional short stories, never once subscribing to the outlandish tales inside.
The past few years have ushered forth an overwhelming personal metamorphosis. Long held convictions and deep seated beliefs have been violently uprooted in the interest of clearing cobwebs and embracing mental clarity. Recently, I delved heavily into reading about well-documented UFO sightings, massive ET government cover-ups, black budget NASA projects, and whistle-blower claims. As I got deeper into the ET barrel, I came to the conclusion that: (1) these mofos have been coming to Earth for at least 60 years (the Sumerians detailed their adventures thousands of years ago); (2) Technologically and cognitively, our visitors are a vastly superior race/culture and; (3) the ETs could have annihilated us a long ass time ago if they had really wanted to.
If you have an interest in the subject matter, I highly recommend taking a look at the thoroughly documented website Project Camelot. Their purpose is to provide a forum for government whistle-blowers, intelligence operatives, and other knowledgeable parties to get their information on the record regarding ET contact. I spent hours pouring through their interview transcripts. The information was severely humbling, to say the least.
