Edgar Mitchell is once again making a highly visible claim that aliens exist. This is not the first time he’s done that. Because he’s a hero to some degree, having walked on the Moon and all, people want to believe him. However, even though I want to believe him, he makes it real hard by claiming psychics and mystics are real in his book The Way of the Explorer: An Apollo Astronaut’s Journey Through the Material and Mystical Worlds. If that doesn’t make it hard enough, he also believes in the shadow government run by the military. This is where things start to get real dicey for me.
First of all, I don’t believe in psychics. The ability may exist, but I don’t think mankind has that ability at this time. Second, I don’t believe in mystic healing. Lastly, I am pretty confident on a personal knowledge level that there is no shadow government run by the military. The US government itself has some pretty amazing military stuff at its disposal. I can’t imagine another entity having anything remotely powerful enough to give it any challenge. And lastly, there are a lot of things aliens have to overcome in order to get to Earth. If they can overcome the barriers of space travel, why in God’s name would they do it to gut cattle or tag people? That makes absolutely no logical sense at all. If they can overcome the speed of light, they could see right through tissue and just look at whatever it is they want.
So, as much as I’d like to believe Mitchell, because he’s an astronaut and all, I just really think he’s nuts. There is life out there, but I am quite certain they don’t gut cattle or tag people. They may have visited here in the past, and they may be doing it now. But, with some of the lunatics we’ve had in Washington, including Jimmy Carter, who did believe in UFO’s, there is no reason to assume it’s been covered up.
