View Full Version : Apollo 14 astronaut claims aliens HAVE made contact

From the UK Daily Mail Online (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1037471/Apollo-14-astronaut-claims-aliens-HAVE-contact--covered-60-years.html)

Aliens have contacted humans several times but governments have hidden the truth for 60 years, the sixth man to walk on the moon has claimed.

Apollo 14 astronaut Dr Edgar Mitchell, said he was aware of many UFO visits to Earth during his career with NASA but each one was covered up.

Dr Mitchell, 77, said during a radio interview that sources at the space agency 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 frame, large eyes and head.

Chillingly, he claimed our technology is 'not nearly as sophisticated' as theirs and "had they been hostile", he warned 'we would be been gone by now'.

Uhm...obviously... Either that, or our technology just as good or better, and we as a human race are too stupid to understand 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.
So; that means you can point us to where to look for the evidence. Names? Dates? Etc.

Reading the papers recently, it's been happening quite a bit.'
Why not just verify it with your inner circle people?

Mentioned much in BAUT.

For instance, see topic: Astronaut: We've had visitors (http://www.bautforum.com/conspiracy-theories/65876-astronaut-weve-had-visitors.html) (a 2007 discussion of a 2004 news article).

Or, Found this old interview with Dr. Mitchell (http://www.bautforum.com/conspiracy-theories/46469-found-old-interview-dr-mitchell.html) (one article referencing a 1998 interview).

In 1991, he appeared on Oprah to discuss this topic as well.

And of course this is the astronaut my mom's creepy friend says she knows... just my luck...

Bear in mind Dr Mitchell has never seen a UFO himself, or so he says; he has not met with any extraterrestrials, and he has no proof of his assertions. His tales of secret meetings are all just that- hearsay.

I suspect someone, or some group of people may have been misleading him for some reason; perhaps as a joke.

Ed Mitchell has been going on about this for years. He has other paranormal beliefs and activities as well. It's one thing to believe that there are other planets with life in the universe. It's something quite other to state that beings from those planets are here on this planet.

I say, show me the evidence.

I've had the pleasure of participating in Doc Mitchell's message board, including a couple exchanges with the man himself (under my real name, not this moniker), on the subject of orbital debris and the danger of fallout from orbital weaponry.

Yeah, like a lot of people, he's got a few personal beliefs that stray beyond the scientifically rigorous, but he's grounded enough that I'm not willing to hurl him into the abyss of woo-wooism.

At the same time, I'd think the good doctor would know better than to present incredible claims without incredible evidence.

He appears to have no evidence; that is the point.

BA mentioned in MSNBCs article on Mitchell (http://cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/07/28/1227975.aspx).

As astronomer Phil Plait points out on his Bad Astronomy blog (http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2008/07/26/ed-mitchell-going-to-the-moon-doesnt-mean-youre-right/), just because you're a moonwalker (or a military officer, for that matter) doesn't mean you're entitled to a "get out of reality free" card.

Nice quote.

Damn, I want one of those cards. Stupid reality.

If I get out of reality, do I still have to do homework?

If I get out of reality, do I still have to do homework?
Judging from what I see from people outside of reality... It's not a requirement.

Or possibly his "inner circle" friends chose him to face a social experiment to see how people would react to the news of ET's...

Well, toothdust, it is possible, but only if the "inner circle" have single-digit IQs.

There have been so many "prophets of the ETs", some of them with almost as high a reputation, that no-one smart enough to tie his own shoe-laces would think that one more such would suddenly make the masses take it seriously.

So this circle doesn't exactly sound like the Joint Ciefs or the Illuminati, do they?

2008-Jul-29, 05:19 PM
Who are these prophets of ET's you speak of that have almost as high a reputation as Edgar Mitchell? I take notice you used the world "almost". How close to his status level are they really, and how do you determine a scale for these people in terms of there notoriety?

OK, Toothdust, on reflection I will have to withdraw my claim.

I had vague recollections of all sorts of unrelated PhDs being trotted out by woo-woos of every stripe, but now I have to admit that I don't know any names, and I might even be confusing them with woo-woos in other fields.

Nevertheless, it is abundantly clear that Mitchell has not electrified the world with his revelations, fame and reputation notwithstanding. So these scary, secretive Powers That Be have failed miserably.


Possibly because they don't exist.

(I also withdraw the imputation that these alleged people aren't capable of tyeing their own shoe-laces. Maybe they just prefer Velcro straps on their sneakers.)

And not that it matters, but I would class a "mere" PhD as being less "credible", in the eyes of the credulous, than a PhD who was also an astronaut. That's basically what I meant.
