Default Alien Contact Covered Up

If your up for an interesting read check this out. Apollo veteran Edgar Mitchell claims Aliens have been in contact with us for years.

Quote:
"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."
As many of you know I don't believe in the little green men from space claims and find this one to be more of the same, but its still interesting to read.

It stands to reason that if any government found any alien life they'd do everything they could to cover it up.

"Little green men" is a disqualification in my book though. Probably just had a little bit too much Tang.

Expect to find the alien version of bacteria first.

More plausible ... http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,24084861-27197,00.html



Another interview, here:
http://dsc.discovery.com/space/qa/al...-mitchell.html

Before his stories broke on the news, the topic came up on another forum. Someone's point of view was, that any civilization capable of traveling interstellar distances would put enough redundancy into their designs that, if avoiding detection was their aim, they would succeed. The conclusion of this person was, either we'd never see the alien craft or we'd have seen several. But our manipulating circumstances, so the we catch a semi-hazy glimpse of one, or they make a sloppy landing that leaves a little, dubious, evidence was running counter to why they'd visit in secret at all.

There were more flying saucer pictures before digital cameras and auto-focus.

That says it all, really.

Just because humans produce lots of fakes and cooks doesn't mean there haven't been aliens around, though. There's also the possibility that there have been visits from aliens who don't particularly want to be seen, but don't care so much whether they're detected to do a perfect job of hiding.

All I do know is, that for some small weather balloon to crash at Roswell, [img]/threads/images/Graemlins/icon27.gif[/img] (whether it be military or whatever) there was a lot of governmental actions being taken!!! [img]/threads/images/Graemlins/icon12.gif[/img] That alone would be cause for concern, but as always, a small cover up leads to a BIGGER story!!!

Even the people who saw nothing still talk about all the military actions being taken. Kinda like the 9/11 pentagon building disaster, all the footage of cameras in the area confiscated! WHY???

Oh dear, oh dear, somebody must have cut the "anti-cranky old coot" medications over at the Old Astronaut Home -- http://blog.wired.com/wiredscience/2...are-not-t.html

I truly didn't know NASA was that far ahead on it's meteor defense plans -- oh, wait, it's not, this is some pre-emptive biatching. Carry on, then.

Why would aliens ever want to come here?

they have a horrible rep on this planet. They are known as cow molesters, adult men molesters, destroy our crops to make artwork, and have back door deals with a government that could, by sheer governmental incompetence, misplace an entire country by simply filing it.
