Astronaut warns of 'alien cover-up'
14:00 AEST Fri Apr 24 2009
The sixth man to walk on the moon has called on the US government to end its "embargo of truth" about the existence of aliens on Earth.
Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell told a delegation of 100 "UFOlogists" in Washington that full disclosure about the presence of extra-terrestrials was essential to the survival of the human race.
"We are being visited," Mr Mitchell, 79, was quoted as saying in the Washington Times.
"It is now time to put away this embargo of truth about the alien presence.
"I call upon our government to open up ... and become a part of this planetary community that is now trying to take our proper role as a spacefaring civilisation."
Mr Mitchell, who holds the record for the longest moonwalk, said many people had told him of their experiences with aliens because he had credibility as a former astronaut.
"[They] figured I was reliable enough to carry their stories and not compromise them," he said.
Mr Mitchell made his comments to a sympathetic audience from the Paradigm Research Group (PRG), an organisation which carries the motto: "It's not about lights in the sky, it's about lies on the ground".
The PRG hopes the Obama administration will defy previous government policy and release classified files detailing proof of alien existence.
"If it does not disclose [the documents] by the end of May — this is not a threat or anything, you don't threaten the United States government, they're heavily armed ... [then] the PRG has … quite a bit of documentary evidence connected to this ... and we are going to be extensively putting that out to the media," group founder Stephen Bassett said.
The problem is that disclosure will be a public relations disaster for the church and other such religious institutions as essentially the details of this information will contradict everything they have ever told us or wanted us to believe. It's a political smoking gun and has the capacity to cause serious rifts in society. Disclosure will in turn, in part, expose the lies, corruption and the massive profiteering exercise pursued by these politically motivated institutions in the name of "religion" and the political figures linked to them ... how they have altered earth history, distorted the facts and manipulated the truth for their own political and financial gain. By and large, they are the same institutions responsible for the 'cover up' in the first place.
This will not sit well with many people, but we are at a stalemate with religion and disclosure is necessary for our evolution ... it is time for us to move beyond the concept of religion. Until we do that, we are effectively quarantined or 'banned' from the planetary community Edgar Mitchell speaks of. Think of this planetary community as the intergalactic version of the UN ... and Earth is effectively the North Korea ... it is seen as 'hostile' and is seen as the equivalent of an angry hormone-fuelled teenage wielding a loaded gun. Many of us here have been privileged with communication or interaction ("contact") with the various "ambassadors" of this community. The star seeds transmission.
Roll on 2012.
