Former astronaut: Man not alone in universe

(CNN) -- Earth Day may fall later this week, but as far as former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell and other UFO enthusiasts are concerned, the real story is happening elsewhere.

Mitchell, who was part of the 1971 Apollo 14 moon mission, asserted Monday that extraterrestrial life exists, and that the truth is being concealed by the U.S. and other governments.

He delivered his remarks during an appearance at the National Press Club following the conclusion of the fifth annual X-Conference, a meeting of UFO activists and researchers studying the possibility of alien life forms.

Mankind has long wondered if we're "alone in the universe. [But] only in our period do we really have evidence. No, we're not alone," Mitchell said.

"Our destiny, in my opinion, and we might as well get started with it, is [to] become a part of the planetary community. ... We should be ready to reach out beyond our planet and beyond our solar system to find out what is really going on out there."

I think that there's life on other planets, and mostly intelligent life. I see no reason to believe that there wouldn't be...it's a big universe.

That's not the same as what Edgar Mitchell has been claiming, that they are visiting right now, and that our government knows about it and is covering it up. :tin_hat:

Given the numerous scandals that have been exposed over the decades, it would be hard to keep that a secret.

I think the odds that 'we are alone in the universe' are really REALLY slim. And I mean intellegent, not merely life.

I also think the odds of us bumping into 'others' any time soon is slim.

I also think the odds of the 'others' being carbon based bipedal who can speak English is so terribly slim I have a better chance of being Yahweh with a hangover.

It'd be odd for Christians, though--- at what point will those intellegent beings have fallen from grace? Would they have needed a savior as well?

Anyone read Tom Flynn's Galactic Rapture? That's what it's about...

I believe Loren has hit the nail on the head.
The kind of cover-up required to make ET contact 'invisible' seems almost impossible for the folks in Washington to be able to manage.
While I do believe that our military could have covered up a single incident effectively, I do not believe that any ongoing contact with an ET civilization could occur without the public at large being aware of it.

I am interested that it is Dr Edgar Mitchell who is making these claims.
He is not cut of the same cloth as the usual astronaut.
He conducted ESP experiments onboard the Apollo 14 craft (without NASA's prior knowledge or approval).
He believes he was healed psychically of kidney cancer.

His claims seem to be more than the "I have heard that aliens are real" type of rumor.
They seem to be more along the lines of "I have seen irrefutable proof that ETs are here now and working with the US Government."

IF this were true, then this would be among the most important discoveries of all time.
Perhaps THE most important discovery.
