One of the most popular questions today is, “Are we alone in the universe?” Believe it or not, you’re in the minority if you believe that absolutely no intelligent life exists outside of planet Earth. In the United States alone, at least half of all Americans say that we’re not alone in the universe. Fifty percent of Americans already believe that there is some form of life on other planets, while only seventeen percent believe there is not. A quarter of Americans believe that intelligent extraterrestrial visitors have already come to Earth and have been doing so for a long time. (source)
Here’s one of them:
“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time.” (source) (source) – Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Astronaut, Air Force Captain, and Founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences
There are multiple reasons why the extraterrestrial question continues to gain popularity. People are starting to ask questions about the world around them, utilizing critical thinking and investigative skills. After thoroughly looking into this topic, it seems inevitable that you will arrive at these conclusions: We are not alone, and we are being visited.
1. The Size of the Universe
How often do you look up into the night sky and wonder just how many stars, planets, galaxies, and more are out there? Space has always fascinated us. From scientists and philosophers to artists and poets (and pretty much just about everyone else, too), we all want to know what’s out there. What is it about deep space that so ignites our collective imagination? Thinking about just how big the universe is can really put things into perspective.
Counting the stars in the universe is like trying to count the number of sand grains on a beach (impossible). Although estimates vary among different experts, the general consensus is that there are at least between 100 billion and 200 billion galaxies in our universe. Think about that for a moment, and now throw in billions of stars in each galaxy! (source) And for all we know, this number could very easily be in the trillions.
Take the Milky Way Galaxy for example, which measures about 120,000 light years across (it would take light that many years to travel across the galaxy), and contains up to 400 billion stars.
Again, we’re talking about billions of galaxies that contain billions of stars. (source)
Scientists estimate that at least 10 billion habitable Earth-sized planets exist in the Milky Way alone, but it’s important to keep an open mind about what type of conditions and environments some unknown extraterrestrial forms could thrive in. They all don’t necessarily have to be Earth-like; the conditions we deem necessary for life might be exclusive to life on this planet, or this type of planet.
Given our estimation of the size of the universe, or multiverse (whatever you want to call it), odds are we are not alone.
The past few years have seen a surge of whistleblowers come out and say some pretty remarkable things. Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden, and Julian Assange have received the most attention, but the reality is that hundreds of whistleblowers with verified credentials and backgrounds have come forward. Mass surveillance and the security state are not the only things shocking people around the world, it’s also the fact that many of these whistleblowers claim that we are not alone in the universe. They wouldn’t be so hard to ignore if it wasn’t for the backgrounds these people have in their respected fields.
The first one that comes to mind is Paul Hellyer, Former Canadian Defence Minister, the man responsible for combining the Canadian Air Force, Army, and Navy into one united force, now known as the Canadian Forces. Someone with such a background coming out and making these extraordinary claims is definitely going to have the attention of many people.
“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead, we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after… . Trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects about which both the Congress and the Commander in Chief have been kept deliberately in the dark.” (source)
“In one of the cases during the cold war, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying South from Russia across Europe. The supreme allied commander was very concerned and was about ready to press the panic button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole. They decided to do an investigation and they investigated for three years and they decided that with absolute certainty that four different species, at least, have been visiting this planet for thousands of years. There’s been a lot more activity in the past two decades, especially since we invented the atomic bomb.”
Paul Hellyer isn’t the only one making extraordinary statements, at least a dozen NASA astronauts have done the same. Just like Dr. Edgar Mitchell’s quote, other astronauts have said some remarkable things. Let’s take a look at a few examples.
“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time, that their appearance is bizarre from any type of traditional materialistic western point of view. That these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, they use toroids, they use co-rotating magnetic disks for their propulsion systems, that seems to be a common denominator of the UFO phenomenon” (source) – Dr. Brian O’Leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor
“In my opinion I think they were worried that it would panic the public if they knew that someone had vehicles that had this kind of performance … so they started telling lies about it. And then I think they had to cover another lie, you know, tell another lie to cover their first lie, now they don’t know how to get out of it. Now it’s going to be so embarrassing to admit that all these administrations have told a lot of untruths…. [and that] there are a number of extraterrestrial vehicles out there cruising around.” (source) – Gordon Cooper, Former NASA Astronaut, Aeronautical Engineer, and test pilot; one of the seven original astronauts in Project Mercury, the first manned space program of the United States
The list goes on and on, the latest in NASA Astronaut statements about UFOs came from the 2005 International Space Station (ISS) Commander, Leroy Chiao.
Here is a video of John Podesta, recently appointed as councillor to Barack Obama, supporting UFO disclosure.
Some of the most extraordinary statements about UFOs and extraterrestrials come from people who have held some of the highest positions possible — those who would be in a position to ‘know’ about possible extraterrestrial encounters.
“Behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.” Former head of CIA, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, 1960
“There are objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything we can deploy, that we have no means of stopping them coming here … [and] that there is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations. That it behooves us, in case some of these people in the future or now should turn hostile, to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want. This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee
“Everything is in a process of investigation, both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world. The nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon. There is an international exchange of data.” – General Carlos Castro Cavero (1979), from UFOs and the National Security State, Volume 2, written by Richard Dolan
The list of military whistleblowers is huge, there are hundreds of them and hundreds of quotes to choose from. To view military whistleblowers (with verified backgrounds) give a press conference at The National Press Club about UFOs deactivating nuclear weapons, click HERE. You can also look up Dr. Steven Greer and the disclosure project.
The list of quotes from many people, working in diverse fields, is outstanding. I could literally fill pages upon pages, but I’ll stop here, I think you get the picture. I do, however, want to spend a little bit more time on the reason why almost everyone knows that we are not alone in the universe.
“There is another way whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.” (source) – Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Nebraska.
“This thing has gotten so highly-classified…it is just impossible to get anything on it. I have no idea who controls the flow of need-to-know because, frankly, I was told in such an emphatic way that it was none of my business that I’ve never tried to make it to be my business since. I have been interested in this subject for a long time and I do know that whatever the Air Force has on the subject is going to remain highly classified.” – Senator Barry Goldwater , Chairman of the Senate intelligence committee (source)
3. The Evidence of UFOs
Over the past few years, dozens of governments have admitted to allocating resources towards the study of UFOs. For instance, in Canada, the RCMP, Transport Canada, and the Department of National Defence recently admitted to tracking and investigating UFOs. (source) They’ve been doing it for years, accumulating thousands upon thousands of UFO related documents. Many of these documents have since been officially released.
HERE is the latest batch of UFO files released from the United Kingdom.
Documents released by the National Security Agency (NSA) reveal what is recorded when a UFO is being tracked on radar. HERE is one example. HERE is a four page U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency and NSA report describing a particular encounter in great detail.
“As the F-4 approached a range of 25 nautical miles it lost all instrumentation and communications. When the F-4 turned away from the object and apparently was no longer a threat to it, the aircraft regained all instrumentation and communications. Another brightly lighted object came out of the original object. The second object headed straight toward the F4.”
HERE is a Wikileak cable that describes how some politicians already know we are not alone in the universe.
I could go on forever. Thousands upon thousands of UFO related documents are now available in the public domain. For a summary of more documents that have been declassified and made available, check out this short video by Richard Dolan.
4. Mass Mainstream Media Attention
Media outlets of all kinds are covering the topic, almost every movie that comes out these days has something to do with space or some kind of extraterrestrial intelligence. We’ve been bombarded with the topic for a while now so it’s not hard to see why so many people are thinking about it.
The most recent case of mainstream extraterrestrial noise was made when scientists spoke to the house Committee on Science, Space and Technology. Dan Werthimer, of the SETI Research Centre at the University of California, Berkeley, recently called for more funding to be allocated to the search for extraterrestrial life since he is “close to 100 percent” certain that we are not alone.
In mid 2013, the same committee held a hearing about exoplanet discoveries, but perhaps one of the largest UFO/extraterrestrial hearings took place at the National Press Club, which was also held in Mid-2013. At this event, hundreds of researchers, activists, and military/agency/political witnesses, representing ten countries, gave UFO/extraterrestrial testimony to six former members of the United States Congress about events and evidence indicating an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
2008 presidential candidate and former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) said that there is “an extraterrestrial influence that is investigating our planet. Something is monitoring the planet and they are monitoring it very cautiously.” You can learn more about the citizens hearing here.
Apart from these events, UFOs are a continual topic of interest in today’s mainstream news. Unfortunately, most mainstream media outlets which cover it seek only to ridicule, rather than investigate, the issue seriously.
HERE is a clip on the same topic on CBC news.
5. Personal Experience and Video Footage
There are millions of people out there claiming to have contact with extraterrestrial beings. This has played a large role in spreading the influence of extraterrestrial interest across the world. All of us seem to be naturally fascinated with the unknown, especially when it comes to space. It seems like human nature.
Neuroscience can now explain what happens to our body when we meditate, but it’s something we all knew to be beneficial before the science. Is extraterrestrial life similar? Is it something we all feel deep down inside, something we don’t need proof for (even though the proof is there)?
Besides the thousands of videos available on YouTube, there is some very fascinating officially documented UFO footage available for us to see.
HE RE is a video that made headlines when it was released. It came straight from the Mexican Air Force. Do a quick UFO search on YouTube and, while you’ll see many fakes, you’ll also find many genuine videos of unknown aerial objects.
A few years ago the question was, “Do UFOs exist?” Today that question has been answered, and the presence of UFOs performing maneuvers which defy our laws of physics has been well documented. The question has more so shifted to, “Is that an extraterrestrial spacecraft?”
It’s nothing to fear, in my opinion they’ve been around forever. They were aware of us long before we became aware of them. As speculated with our ancient civilizations in Earth’s brief past, perhaps they will one day interact with humanity again. I guess we will see.
Perhaps some groups are concerned about our planet, and come here to push the idea that we need to start changing the way we are doing things. Perhaps one day soon we will find out.
I definitely believe that a good chunk of these UFOs are of extraterrestrial origin. I also believe that many of these crafts are “ours.”
