.....the American people do NOT want to know.

It would irrevocably change both our understanding of the world, and our standing in it. Just take a look around this forum, the great majority of people in here cannot accept the alien situation, and fight tooth and nail against the obvious.

It's always a bad idea to try to wake somebody who'd rather stay asleep.


This seems to be the case and in a nutshell, it's basically fear.

That which I underlined in your post is an understatement. It's to the point now where this reluctance to accept the situation is resulting in vacuous and inane denial from some here. Very often, alternatives with far less credibility than this phenomenon are given in effort to compensate for this fear. At the end of the day though, all of these deterrents do nothing but make those alternatives being peddled look extremely foolish in light of all of the evidence that we do have(albeit not concrete) . I wonder can these people see how asinine they come off as? I expect that type of behavior from someone not knowledgeable AT ALL of the phenomenon who hasn't done any research whatsoever, not from someone such as a member here who has been registered for years and has been exposed to thread after thread and link after link detailing various aspects of the phenomenon.

Our understanding of the world NEEDS to be changed, we have been living with lies ever since the beginning of our existence. Just doesn't make sense to me to wallow around in this old paradigm that was really constructed to keep us from the truth. Pretty soon it's going to come crumbling down because what we are facing here is inevitable, so these people need to accept it and move on.

Because the truth is too hard to handle and is against the specie that is controlling us.

Could be.

If there really is any truth to aliens visiting this planet (as yet there is no proof of it available in the public domains) then it has to be because the aliens are complicit in the cover-up. Or they act alone and our rulers know little more than we do about them.

Let's surmise their presence has to be kept secret at all costs by these aliens.Perhaps this planet is one huge, billions of years old, experimental lab for immortal beings? Perhaps they are so truly 'alien' to us that we can't actually perceive them properly with our limited senses. Their existence and consciousness could be completely beyond our understanding.

Or perhaps the truth is so frightening that we can not be told the truth. Perhaps we are being harvested for the aliens to steal our souls when the time is right. Maybe that explains ancient sacrifice? The aliens want our souls!

Or maybe the truth is actually equally frightening. Could the truth be that there really is no one capable of getting here because at this moment in time there is nothing and no one intelligent enough to contact this small blue planet? The dinosaurs didn't achieve much technologically in over 200 million years. So we could be a galactic or even universal rarity.

My question is why would aliens only communicate with governments, in particular the United States? Governments come and go. Policies change. The aliens must have a lot more respect for governments than citizens generally do. Unless the aliens are actually prisoners being forced to work for governments, I don't see why any government would have an exclusive to communicate with aliens.
Also, if underground facilities exist and all the rest of the stuff we've read about, surely there would be a few credible whistleblowers around - the story would be worth millions. Maybe everyone is under threat - who knows. Just seems unreasonable that after all this time, all the "evidence", all the sightings, hardly anyone in the civilian sector has ever shaken hands with one.
Any opinions on this?

The anatomy of any such cover up would have to include far too many persons of many nationalities for nearly 70 years. Thousands of people spanning the generations. The likes of China, Russia, Iran, North Korea etc. would have to be secretly in agreement, whilst also appearing as political opponents of the, West.

Think of all the personnel involved. The politicians, media manipulators, the secret military teams, the men in black, the saucer recovery troops, the surveillance teams, the IT maintenance and backup teams, the photoshoppers.....It becomes one hell of a list to keep suppressing the truth across 200+ nations. Especially as the years pass and alliances and attitudes change.

Sure they kept the Manhattan Project very secret. But not for 70 years. Then there is the fact that when UFOs crash nothing is ever left to chance. Every single piece of smoking gun evidence is removed and no one is allowed to take a sneak photo of these people anywhere in the vicinity, not them, not their vehicles, aircraft and whatever else they need.

The only good UFO photos are all fakes and the bad ones are so grainy no one can tell what they really show. So we are left with the best evidence being based on stories passed from people, not scared to talk, but offering nothing of irrefutable proof. If they had any the MIB or military took it from them and threatened them not to speak.

The US couldn't even stop civilians picking up pieces of a crashed Stealth Fighter during the Kosovo crisis. But when an alien UFO comes down anywhere in the world you can be sure nothing of it can ever be found that can lead to ultimate proof of ET.

Think about why that may be and let me know your opinion.

Well if it were about keeping a more advanced, adaptable, alien species/civilization, it would more or less just upset the mind sets of folks really. Not only would it be just mind boggling to the average person and the basis of reality, due to the capabilities that even some UFO's are said to possess, but it would more or less up set the Food(or technological) chain, where people, or even militaries would find themselves a little, or a lot lower then being at the top of a pyramid that they originally thought they were.

We humans just don't like change, especially when its a challenging one when we think we've come so far in technology in the past 100 years .

Personally, I think it would kick our technological progress to a higher gear if it were released, pushing us forward to more advanced technologies other then just communication, entertainment, smart phones, etc...Sure people would panick, religious folks would be praying, and their probably be an increase in suicidal cults, but for the most part, people would accept the reality eventually.

As for bacteria or microbes, they will be announcing with no problem.

I don't know why, but the arogance in some of people here is so powerful it is just insane. I will break it to you all, but no, people are not complete retards unable to comprehend anything outside of their home, and no, you are not the only enlightened, educated and open minded ones.

There is no point in keeping alien life from public. There would be no panic, or overwelming fear. We do not live in a movie, we are not teenangers from american horror film. Even the most backward, undeveloped redneck would accept this fact after a week


Absolute nonsense. You're only fooling yourself. Society may not collapse overnight, but it would be an upheaval never seen before. Panic? Fear? You bet your bottom dollar on it.

In 2001, some regular humans brought down a few buildings, and people were so overwhelmed by fear they let the Constitution be shredded by the "Patriot Act".
If it was aliens? Chaos and madness, dude.

Just look around this very forum; even in a forum dedicated to the topic of aliens the great majority of people here cannot accept the fact of alien contact. They go to amazing lengths to deny the reality, twist the truth into pretzels, attack witnesses and whistleblowers alike.
There's even a guy who worked for NASA at some point who is dedicated to smearing the reputation of astronauts who had UFO sightings.
Despite your protestations, people simply could not handle the truth about alien contact.

And most importantly, the chaos would come not from the admission that aliens exist.
The chaos and fear will come from the facts that come next:

They are smarter and stronger than we are.
We cannot stop them if we wanted to.
We do not know where they come from, or what they want.
We cannot stop the abduction program.
We cannot stop their hybridization program.
We do not know why they are creating hybrids.
We cannot stop them from using you to create offspring against your will.
We can't even stop them from pulling you out of your car, or out of your own bed. Your children, too.

Panic. Fear. Chaos. Like nothing you've ever seen. And rightly so.

I know you play devils advocate, but I might add as UFO/alien supporter TrueMessiah pointed out and freely admits above:

At the end of the day though, all of these deterrents do nothing but make those alternatives being peddled look extremely foolish in light of all of the evidence that we do have(albeit not concrete)

Requiring concrete evidence for a physical phenomena that has been popular for almost 70 years with alien beings crashing their spacecraft, abducting humans, landing, interacting, and other physical on-Earth claims, is expected. Many thousands of opportunities for many decades and still only maybe/kinda/sorta/possible evidence. Along with the government conspiracy and cover up excuses, they also have to resort to piling cases together as a group and pointing to it- "See see look at these cases! ALIENS ARE HERE!" In reality, when each case is approached individually (as they should be), they do not provide concrete evidence of alien beings on Earth.

How's that book coming along Scdfa? Have you gotten your neighbors, who were out having a picnic next door and witnessed one of your UFOs, to give their account of what happened?

Perhaps there is nothing to hold back from the public. Maybe the entire alien business was just a case of run-amok social memes and they haven't found intelligent life or bacteria.

Just a thought.


Sigh... seriously, when I read comments like this one, I just can't do other thing than admire these little gray dudes, they have managed to abduct thousands and still, some people is completely dormant.

Yes, the US government specially must be pretty aware of such invasive operations between its borders.

And the reason for the silence is a at least summatory of certain things, like avoiding massive panic on the population, getting the advantage on new technologies, and I suspect the complete inability to do jack# about it.

And yet out of "millions of people", not a single one has managed to provide any meaningful evidence, and many have been shown to either be nutjobs or liars...

We would not panic like muphets running in circles. If someone is sceptic or religious, it doesn't mean his brain will pop when he meets something contradicting. We adapt since the day we exist.



Yeah well, that sounds nice and all, but, I didn't read or watch any administration, or the military, calling to a press conference announcing that there are already 'aliens' flying around since decades now. In conclusion, they're 'keeping alien life from public'.

Going all the way back to the Majestic 12 days there was a document that addressed the issue of releasing information regarding the existence of extraterrestrial life. It was subsequently determined that the general public should not be informed until after a lengthy period, perhaps decades, of indoctrination using the popular media of the time to condition their response to something manageable on a national or global scale. It was feared that the knowledge of ET life would be such a shock to the foundation of religion, which the majority of people subscribe to in one form or another, that the fabric of society would fall apart in the wake of the loss of their moral and ethical compass. Though there are many who would be quick to say that religious people are not more moral or ethical than anyone else, it is the belief in a higher power and the tenets of their respective religion that gives purpose and guidance to their lives. The government believes that if religion were to be undermined in one fell swoop that anarchy would emerge as the new union of the people.

Many liars, nutjobs, could be, but certainly not most, or the majority. Patterns were pretty clear when the first investigations were done in the 70's and 80's, so, yeah, people has been abducted by alien beings. Oh and yeah, they're pretty effective controlling the shole situation, from beginning to end, it's covered extensively on the available bibliography, did you miss that memo?

Not sure how to take your reply. Do you believe that governments or those in control, whoever they are, are so powerful that they can hide behind a curtain with a massive amount of evidence? Or do you think, as I do, that it's impossible given the number of people it would involve to keep this type of information hidden?
And once again, why would aliens communicate only with governments? Perhaps there is some advantage to them, but how long could it be held as a secret?

My opinion is that if aliens arrived on this planet that the "aliens" are probably robotic. If anyone was fortunate enough to collect the remnants of their spaceship, then perhaps something was learned about their technology.

So-called aliens have been anthropomorphized into beings that have a physical similarity to humans, to include big black eyes and egg shaped head. In a way it makes sense because if I was sending a spaceship to a distant planet, I would want the beings on that planet to be comfortable with who they saw in the spaceship.

Anyway, that's all speculation. I'm a bench scientist. Put it on my bench and I'll try to tell you what it is!

How do you confirm that they were actually on an examination table being studied by aliens? I don't know one way or the other whether it's true. But do you? How do you substantiate the claims?

Thats a good question. And the obvious answer is that the general public might react in a matter tearing society apart.

But lets put that aside. Answering the question would bring a pletoria of follow up questions, and the truth is simply to scary for the general public. That would be a good reason.

Other than that, trust is hard to earn. Lying to the world for 60years would make people loose All faith in government telling the truth... For those who believe they do....

I think this is a very valid point you make, and it is a very reasonable consideration.

I now feel that the cover-up has been the wisest course of action, and a humane and benevolent act, even if it arose from more negative motivations.

By lying to us, they have given us seventy more years of innocence and wonder. The cover-up has allowed several generations to have seventy more years of the old America we grew up in, and wanted our kids to grow up in.

I for one am glad for it. I'm glad that schools don't have to talk about unstoppable advanced races of alien beings using people as breeding stock, or livestock, or God only knows what else.

The cover-up has bought us precious time to spend with the ones we love without having to deal with the overwhelming weight of understanding our circumstances.

We should probably be grateful.
