White House Denies Extraterrestrial Contact

On Monday the White House Office of Science and Technology issued a statement denying any knowledge of extraterrestrial contact. They also denied that this non-existent evidence was being hidden by some sort of government cover-up operation as alleged by many in the UFO community. Of course, if the politicians were all Reptilian aliens whose agenda depended upon discrediting anyone who suspects their presence, that's exactly what they would say.

"The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," Phil Larson from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy reported on the website."In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye."

The petition calling on the government to disclose any knowledge of or communication with extraterrestrial beings was signed by 5,387 people, and 12,078 signed the request for a formal acknowledgement from the White House that extraterrestrials have been engaging the human race.

“Hundreds of military and government agency witnesses have come forward with testimony confirming this extraterrestrial presence,” the second petition states. “Opinion polls now indicate more than 50 percent of the American people believe there is an extraterrestrial presence and more than 80 percent believe the government is not telling the truth about this phenomenon. The people have a right to know. The people can handle the truth.”

Apparently not, at least according to those who are still insisting that extraterrestrials secretly control our planet. But really, those beliefs are pretty far-fetched. Jack recently put up a post describing his problems with the "ancient alien" hypothesis and I agree with most of his conclusions. Modern people often assume that because we have more technology at our disposal we have to be a lot more intelligent than the ancients, when given how slowly evolution works it's much more likely that within the span of recorded history people have always been about as smart as they are now. They just had a different knowledge base to work with and a different set of priorities.

Anyone who contends that human beings could not have built the various monolithic structures throughout the world is completely ignorant of the fact that ancient cultures would have had their own genuises who figured out how to get the necessary tasks done. The same is true of the modern world, in that extremely wealthy people and gigantic corporations are plenty capable of dominating the planet without any help from beyond the stars. There's no reason whatsoever to imagine that the global elite would have to consist of evil shapeshifting space aliens in order for them to act like a bunch of douchebags.

The problem is that people associate UFOs with aliens. Never with secret military projects. Why?
I believe that many people have seen strange flying objects, but I don't understand why they think that those can't be ours - and secret.

Do unidentified flying objects exist? Yes. If you see something flying and don't know what it is, it is (to you) unidentified.

But let's take this a step further. Do unidentified dogs exist? Yes. I saw a dog in the street the other day. No tags. Unidentified. An Unidentified Doggish Object.

Clearly, the fact that the dog was unidentified means it's extraterrestrial.

Keep your eyes open for UDOs.

@Gorizza: I think that's probably the case with a lot of these sightings. The military is testing experimental aircraft all the time, and it's inevitable that some of them are going to be spotted.

@MagickOfThought: Robert Anton Wilson once wrote this great essay on how he had of course seen Unidentified Flying Objects, but he didn't give it a lot of thought because in his daily life he also saw plenty of Unidentified Non-Flying Objects. Same concept, really. It's making the jump to space aliens that's the questionable bit.
