Ex-Astronaut: Aliens Are Real and NASA Knows It
Fox News ^ | July 24th, 2008

Posted on 07/24/2008 2:27:45 PM PDT by Raineygoodyear

Former NASA astronaut and moon-walker Dr. Edgar Mitchell — a veteran of the Apollo 14 mission — claims aliens exist. He says extraterrestrials have visited Earth on several occasions — but the alien contact has been repeatedly covered up by governments for six decades. Mitchell, 77, said during a radio interview in Birmingham, England, that sources at NASA who had had contact with aliens described the beings as "little people who look strange to us." He said supposedly real-life ET's were similar to the traditional image of a "small gray" — short, slight frame, large eyes and large head. Mitchell also claimed human technology is "not nearly as sophisticated" as the aliens' and "had they been hostile," he warned "we would be been gone by now."

If there were actual Extra Terrestrial Aliens and if they travelled to our world, then why the presumption that we were the first time they’d ever done so, and learned that you can’t just pop in on a planet and anounce yourself to all?

That’s equally as possible right?

food for thought

why would they be any different than us?
when scientists research different species and “no contact” tribes, they try to remain hidden so they can observe without disturbing

makes sense that IF we are being visited, they would do the same: take samples, take some back for their “zoos”, observe, etc

just an explanation that makes some sense............

My dad may or may not have worked for the CIA at a facility that may or may not be located in Australia. Some of the people he may or may not have worked with went on to write books about aliens because they knew that the government, if asked, would never confirm or deny that they ever worked there and would never confirm or deny what they did there and that would bolster their credibility with the UFO community and increase their book sales. They all that that was funny.

If they can manage interstallar/galactic travel they are definitely either scientific or magical. So your hypothesis is a valid one.

Tactically thinking - element of surprise for invasion for example find out if there’s any technology or conditions that could thwart your invasion.

Ethically thinking - sudden shock to the locals caused unintentional disruption which interferred with their mission or caused unrecoverable turmoil/collapse of society.

Possibility for both violent and non-violent intent ET’s. If they exist and have visited, almost anything is plausible.

I have an uncle, Bolivar Stopfart, that has a gofer that claims to be from the planet Fullahshit. When the White Coats came to get Bolivar, he was my mother's sister's brother on my father's side, he was put in a straight jacket. The gofer got away. It seems that Scotty beamed him up. Sad story.

I wont confirm or deny that, but I was born in Alice Springs.

I was about 10 when it first occured to me to ask why I was born there and was shocked when I was told, "because, now drop it".

I think they all wanted to be rather quiet about Alice Springs after “The Falcon and the Snowman” (Boyce and Lee, if memory serves) compromised the data intelligence gathering network.

For those of you who have read “Deep Black”.

Edgar Mitchell co-founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences in 1973. Some of the things researched at the institute include: spiritual energy, meditation, consciousness, alternative healing, spirituality, human potential, psychic abilities, and life after death.

He's said that he was cured of cancer by the "remote healing" abilities of someone called Adam Dreamhealer.

In other words, he's nuttier than a fruitcake.

After the whole Lisa Nowak Depends incident, the title “ex-astronaut” can no longer be used to bolster credibility.

Why the presumption that we would ever know that aliens visited the earth, or that they would contact us if they did? Visitors from space would have to be able to travel faster than light. If you can travel faster than light, you can control light, so you could not be detected by anything we know, including vision.

UFO believers also presuppose that although aliens can travel across interstellar distances, their technology limits their ability to observe a planet unless they land on it. That doesn’t make sense if you think about it. We use remote sensing, people who can avoid asteroid strikes at a million miles an hour would have to have much better remote sensing or they would be killed in flight.

Visitors from space would have to be able to travel faster than light.

Not necessarily. The crew of a spacecraft traveling just short of lightspeed would experience relativistic time dilation, thus aging more slowly. If you can get close enough to C, you can go anywhere in the universe in one lifetime.

That having been said, there's still the problem of
1) Actually building such a spacecraft.
2) The fact that there isn't the slightest evidence that such a spacecraft has ever visited us.
