The sixth man to walk on the moon says that aliens have visited Earth and their peace-loving nature helped us to prevent nuclear war.
Edgar Mitchell, who was a member of the Apollo 14 crew that went to the moon, says he has talked to Air Force officers who told him of numerous sightings of UFOs around missile bases and test sites.
The idea sounds far-fetched, but Mitchell claims that military insiders viewed strange flying crafts cruising over U.S. missile bases and the White Sands facility in New Mexico, the site of the first-ever nuclear bomb detonation in 1945.
“They wanted to know about our military capabilities,” he said. “My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth.”
Mitchell, who grew up near the famous Roswell site in New Mexico, said that he has heard from various Air Force officers who claim UFOs were a regular site during the Cold War.
“They told me UFOs were frequently seen overhead and often disabled their missiles,” he added. “Other officers from bases on the Pacific coast told me their (test) missiles were frequently shot down by alien spacecraft.”
Some are understandably skeptical about this theory that diplomatic aliens have traveled the cosmos to disarm U.S. military weapons.
“Given that the Universe is around 14 billion years old, if we’re being visited, it’s unlikely we’re dealing with a civilization just a few hundred years ahead of us, so stories of aliens managing to disrupt a few of our weapons tests are far-fetched,” Nick Pope, former Ministry of Defense UFO researcher, told Mirror online. “Chances are they’d be millions of years ahead of us and could do anything they wanted to.”
“For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don’t believe, no proof is possible.” I’ve found there are very few people on either side of the UFO debate willing to talk about the issue calmly, rationally, and without getting personal. The problem is that there is a lot of disinformation coming out on both sides that muddies the waters. For instance, trusting anything the military says about UFO’s is absurd, given how they’ve lied about the phenomenon for 60 years.
Conversely, some of the “proof” of alien encounters is laughable — including the Roswell incident that eventually morphed into a Chamber of Commerce promotion. All these people were walking around saying the army threatened to kill them if they opened their mouths and ended up getting 5 grand a pop in appearance money to tell their story — apparently while remaining in good health.
I’m not belittling those who believe we’ve been visited by aliens. And I won’t dismiss Mr. Mitchell’s story out of hand. But I’m with the late, great astronomer Carl Sagan, who said: “Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof.” You have to admit it’s one of the more extraordinary claims in scientific history that aliens have visited the earth.
So far, the “extraordinary proof” is lacking.
