Two top astronomers from the SETI Institute (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) recently appeared in front of the congressional House Science and Technology Committee for a hearing regarding the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. They told the committee that extraterrestrial life most certainly exists, without question, one of those scientists is Seth Shostak, a well-known senior scientist at the SETI Institute. They said that the chance of discovering life on other planets is inevitable and will most likely occur within the next 20 years.(1)(2)
Their main argument was the size of the universe, emphasizing that there are trillions of stars out there, with one in every five most likely harboring an Earth-like planet.
“In the last 50 years, evidence has steadily mounted that the components and conditions we believe necessary for life are common and perhaps ubiquitous in our galaxy. The possibility that life has arisen elsewhere, and perhaps evolved intelligence, is plausible and warrants scientific inquiry. If you extrapolate on the planets they discovered, there are a trillion planets in the galaxy. That’s a lot of places for life. We know the majority of stars have planets, but what fraction of stars have planets that are more like the earth? It might be one in five.” – Dan Shostak
Scientists are discovering billions of Earth like planets on our Milky Way galaxy alone. I’d also like to mention that planets do not have to be Earth-like in order to harbor life, that’s just what we think and assume. Who knows what type of conditions life on other planets can thrive in? Or the biological make up of an extraterrestrial life form?
New York Politician Asks Astronomers about Extraterrestrials Already Visiting The Planet
Another topic brought up at the hearing was the topic of extraterrestrials, and if they are already visiting the planet. It was asked by U.S. Rep Chris Collins, a New York Republican.
You can view the full hearing HERE.
Chris: “I think I might ask the question everyone in this room wants to ask, have you watched ‘Ancient Aliens’ and what’s your comment about that series?”
Shostak’s reply: “The public is fascinated with the idea that we may be being visited now, or may have been visited in the past, the so-called UFO phenomenon. I personally don’t share the conviction that we are being visited. I don’t think that that would be something that all the governments of the world had managed to obfuscate – to keep secret. I don’t believe that. .. The idea that maybe we were visited during the time of the ancient Egyptians and so forth, keep in mind that in the 4.5 billion year history of the Earth, the time of the ancient Egyptians was yesterday. So again, why were they there then? What was it that brought them to Earth? I have no idea and I don’t find very good evidence.”
In this interview, Shostak said he is aware of the witness testimony, but the fact remains that there is no scientific evidence, something he can touch, feel and examine, and that most of the scientists he knows feel the same way.
I’m not sure Shostak has examined the black budget world. Just because he has not seen any scientific evidence, does not mean that there is no scientific evidence. To read more about the black budget, please click HERE.
I’d also like to mention that many scientists all over the world have expressed that there is tremendous amounts of evidence to support the idea that extraterrestrial visitations have been occurring, and for a very long time. It’s not hard for governments to keep secrets, and I think we should not assume that if they have been visiting us, that they would just show up en mass. Here is one of them (a scientist) who shares a different belief than Shostak:
Why Were They Here Then (Ancient Past) and Not Now?
One of Shostak’s questions was, if they were here in our ancient past, why are they not here now? I don’t know the answer to this, but I do know that Earth was a very different place thousands of years ago compared to what it is now. Today, Earth has been destroyed, the people are at war and the overall general vibe of the planet is heavy. It’s flooded in conflict, pain, hurt, greed and fear, but things are changing, and maybe that explains all of the UFO activity we’ve been seeing lately over the past few years. There are a number of reasons why they might choose not to interact with us at this point in our history. At the same time, it seems interaction has been occurring, but with various individuals across the planet (instead of full out open disclosure) and with different government agencies all over the world.
So that brings us to his next point, that he doesn’t believe they would be able to keep this a secret. I personally don’t think it would be that hard. There are various secret military bases all over the planet, who is to say they are not interacting with those agencies at those bases?
What about all of the recent previously classified UFO documents that governments have now released? They managed to keep those secret for over 50 years… Don’t those go to show that they are indeed capable of keeping these secrets? They were able to cover up the fact that they were investigating the UFO phenomenon for decades.
There is a long history of UFOs interacting with military agencies (see below). Again, it would be a good idea if Dan was made aware of the black budget. As a scientist, I can understand why he doesn’t find all of the witness testimony compelling, however at the same time, the backgrounds of the men and women who have testified are no joke, and the official government documents correlated with them.
There is so much the human race still has to learn, realize and wake up to. We cannot even begin to comprehend the reasons why they are not interacting with humanity as they once supposedly did, openly and for everyone to see. Perhaps they don’t want to cause panic? Perhaps they are waiting for us to return the planet into balance with its natural environment. The list goes on and on, into various subjects that might involve concepts of science like frequency and vibration, who knows. The fact remains, the evidence is there and it’s overwhelming, it goes FAR beyond witness testimony and into abductions, films, reverse engineering, free energy, UFOs and nuclear missile sites, documents ect…
Here is a video of Bigelow Aerospace Director Mike Gold who mentions another congressional hearing about life on other planets. It’s good to see that some are at least aware of the UFO phenomenon and its importance. He expresses how he feels that it is a serious issue (The UFO issue) and that he is glad someone has been taking the reports.
UFOs ( Brief summary from past articles)
As far as UFOs go, they are a documented fact. The information below illustrates this, and yes I do understand that UFO does not equate to extraterrestrial space craft.
Within the past few years, dozens of governments admitted to allocating resources and having programs to study the UFO phenomenon. For instance, in Canada the RCMP, Transport Canada, and the Department of National Defence recently admitted to tracking UFOs and investigating them. (source) They’ve been doing it for years, accumulating thousands upon thousands of UFO related documents. Many of these documents have since been officially released.
HERE is the latest batch of UFO files released from the United Kingdom.
Documents released by the National Security Agency (NSA) reveal what is recorded when a UFO is being tracked on radar. HERE is one example. HERE is a four page U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency and NSA report describing a particular encounter in great detail.
“As the F-4 approached a range of 25 nautical miles it lost all instrumentation and communications. When the F-4 turned away from the object and apparently was no longer a threat to it, the aircraft regained all instrumentation and communications. Another brightly lighted object came out of the original object. The second object headed straight toward the F4. ”
Again the list goes on and on and thousands upon thousands of UFO related documents are now available in the public domain. For a summary of more documents that have been declassified and made available, a video done by UFO expert Richard Dolan does a great one in 10 minutes. To watch it click HERE and see what type of information is out there.
Here is some of the witness testimony that the SETI scientist was referring to as something he cannot consider as evidence, and I understand that. But again, he does not seem to be aware of the black budget world -which include projects the human race knows nothing about.
“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about the direction we were heading and offered to help. Instead, some of us interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after. Trillions of dollars have been spent on black projects which both congress and the commander in chief have deliberately been kept in the dark.” (source) – Former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer
“In one of the cases during the cold war, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying South from Russia across Europe. The supreme allied commander was very concerned and was about ready to press the panic button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole. They decided to do an investigation and they investigated for three years and they decided with absolute certainty that four different species, at least, have been visiting this planet for thousands of years. There’s been a lot more activity in the past two decades, especially since we invented the atomic bomb.” (source) – Paul Hellyer
“Behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.” Former head of CIA, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, 1960 (source)
“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” (source) – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee
“This thing has gotten so highly-classified…it is just impossible to get anything on it. I have no idea who controls the flow of need-to-know because, frankly, I was told in such an emphatic way that it was none of my business, that I’ve never tried to make it to be my business since. I have been interested in this subject for a long time and I do know that whatever the Air Force has on the subject is going to remain highly classified.” – Senator Barry Goldwater, Chairman of the Senate intelligence committee (source)
“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time. That their appearance is bizarre from any type of traditional materialistic western point of view. That these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, they use toroids, they use co-rotating magnetic disks for their propulsion systems, that seems to be a common denominator of the UFO phenomenon” (source) – Dr. Brian O’leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor
Former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska), and 2008 presidential candidate said that there is “an extraterrestrial influence that is investigating our planet. Something is monitoring the planet and they are monitoring it very cautiously.” You can learn more about the citizens hearing here.
I cannot begin to express how much information and evidence is out there to support the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
