I feel rather sorry for the sixth man to walk on the moon aka Dr Edgar Micthell. Here he is, on radio, telling the world exactly what they want to hear and I’m about to sit and just take the piss. I can’t help it, but I promise to be gentle Dr M, I promise.
So, the Apollo 14 veteran spills the lot:
“I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we’ve been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real.”
“It’s been well covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so,” he says. “But slowly it’s leaked out,” he says. He says, “Some of us have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it.” But the trouble lies in his picture of these beings and their culture.
The 77-year-old Bachelor of Science and doctorate awardee describes the aliens as “little people who look strange to us”. Apparently our technology is “not nearly as sophisticated” as theirs and then he barely bothers paraphrasing the classic “they come in peace”. In fact these aliens quite resemble ET with their large eyes and heads – his words, not mine.
It’s tragic really. It could be true. It could be so very true. I want it to be true but I just don’t buy it. I’m not going to say the guy’s senile. My gran’s nearly 100 and she’s got more marbles than I have but I can’t imagine that it’s all a big publicity stunt either.
Naturally, NASA are respectably denying it with “Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue” but it does make you think. How on Earth (pun intended) would you actually go about convincing people if it was true? If we’re not going to believe a man who’s been there, done it and probably fathered a little grey somewhere in the galaxy and got all giggy in zero g, then who will we believe?
