Sceptics often make patently indefensible claims about alien visitation.
One recently said: “There is absolutely no evidence that we have been visited by ET. ET never went home. He never left it.”
It’s a witty one-liner, but a silly one nevertheless.
Ask most scientists if they believe that life could exist elsewhere in the universe, and they’ll answer in the affirmative.
Ask them if some other-worldly civilisations may be thousands if not millions of years ahead of us technologically, and they’ll generally assent to that too.
However, when you ask them whether some of those advanced civilisations may have mastered interstellar spaceflight at faster-than-light speed they become a little more cautious.
Nevertheless, many will begrudgingly admit that it might just be possible.
As one physicist told me: “We don’t know how to do that yet, but we might be missing something ... who knows?”
But here’s the crunch question: when you ask them whether those space-travellers may have actually visited Earth, they inevitably shift uncomfortably and say, “No, there’s no evidence of that.”
It seems strange. If ET exists, and there is no plausible reason to deny that they may have developed the means to travel from their world to ours, by what logic can we then deny that it might have happened in reality?
If ET could travel to other worlds, how do we know he hasn’t, and how do we know he hasn’t travelled here?
As I’ve said before, it’s simply impossible to assert that no evidence of ET visitation exists.
How could any individual make that determination unless they had visited every square inch of our planet and examined it?
I have no problem with rational sceptics who simply state they’ve never seen the evidence, but I have a big problem with those who assert there is none in existence.
It’s an assertion that patently cannot be proven.
But some do know the truth:
“Sightings of unexplained objects at great altitude and travelling at high speeds in the vicinity of major U.S. defence installations are of such nature that they are not attributable to natural phenomena or known types of aerial vehicles.” (Dr. H. Marshall Chadwell, former assistant director of the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence.)
“At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs.” (Scott Carpenter, astronaut).
“I know other astronauts share my feelings... we know the government is sitting on hard evidence of UFOs.” (Gordon Cooper, astronaut).
“We have contact with alien cultures.” (Dr. Brian O’Leary (astronaut).
“I’ve been convinced for a long time that the flying saucers are real and interplanetary. In other words we are being watched by beings from outer space.” (Albert M. Chop, former Deputy Public Relations Director at NASA).
These are just a few quotations plucked from hundreds which indicate that intelligent, influential and knowledgeable people are now acknowledging that we have been visited by extraterrestrial beings.
Now it’s just possible they could all be lying, but even the most intransigent sceptic would have to acknowledge that it is highly unlikely. (www.gravitywarpdrive.com/UFO_Testimonies.htm ).
Whether or not they acknowledge that there is indeed scientific evidence to prove ET visitation has occurred, they’d surely have to admit that such powerful testimony can’t simply be ignored.
If hundreds of people of the same calibre were to come forward and say they had incontrovertible evidence that a nuclear power station was about to explode with catastrophic consequences, do you think for one minute that they would be ignored? You bet they wouldn’t.
The only reason that such powerful witness testimony is being kicked to the sidelines is because noisy sceptical voices don’t want to listen.
Of course, those who wish to see the truth about ET kept a secret are more than happy to encourage that practice.
This is from Sergeant Clifford B. Stone (US Army) who belonged to a secret ET Retrieval Team: “We have contact with aliens – not originating from some foreign country, but from some other solar system...and I have been a party to that.”
Next week, in the last of this three-part series, I’ll be asking why the governments of the world have made such strenuous efforts to keep the truth about alien visitation secret...
