I found this particually interesting, a quote by Winston Churchhill reguarding a UFO encounter:


"this event should be immediately classified since it would create mass panic amongst the general population and destroy one’s belief in the church.”




this to me tells me that he knew the UFO was ET controlled, what other reason could there have been for stating this?


since i am making a thread i have taken the time to compile i list of some of my favouite quoutes;



"We must insist upon full access to disks recovered. For instance, in the La case the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination."
--J Edgar Hoover



am convinced that these ojects do exist and that they are not manufactured by any nations on earth"
--Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding



Unknown objects are operating under intelligent control... It is imperative that we learn where UFOs come from and what their purpose is. I can tell you, behind the scenes, high ranking military officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs"
--Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter



"I can assure you that flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on earth"
--President Harry S. Truman



"I'm not at liberty to discuss the governments knowledge of extraterrestrial UFO's at this time. I am still personally being briefed on the subject!"
--President Richard M. Nixon



"There is a government within the government who controll this and i do not controll it"
--Bill Clinton



"I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets which obviously are a little more technically advanced than we are here on Earth." --Colonel L. Gordon Cooper



"We have contact with alien cultures."
--Astronaut Dr. Brian O'leary



We all know that UFOs are real. All we need to ask is where do they come from, and what do they want?"
--Apollo 14 Astronaut Capt. Edgar Mitchell



"At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs."
--NASA's Scott Carpenter



"Let there be no doubt. Alien technology harvested from the infamous saucer crash in Roswell, N.Mex., in July 1947 led directly to the development of the integrated circuit chip, laser and fiber optic technologies, Particle beams, Electromagnetic propulsion systems, Depleted uranium projectiles, Stealth capabilities, and many others! How do I know? I was in charge! (A matter of public record)I think the kids on this planet are wise to the truth, and I think we ought to give it to them. I think they deserve it.
--Colonel Philip Corso





Please share more popular quotes! i am interested to see more, i decided to chose famous/well known people to add some credibility to them, i for one beleive what they are saying as i cannot see why they would lie

i belive somthing big is going on, and the govenment do have some involvment in some kind of coverup, but ET's themselves are the ones forcing the silence, the ET's do not want to be known about.

please post your qoutes/opinions as i would like to hear them!

Would you mind listing your sources for some of these like interview pieces on websites, magazines, or just hearing it on TV? As I'd like to look into it more. Not saying I don't believe you but just curious about the place(s) you found it//them.

Here are some from astronauts, and there are many more from military and commercial airline companies as well. It is enough to make me continue believing....


NASA astronaut, Donald "Deke" Slayton.

"Mission Control, please be informed, there is a Santa Claus."
— NASA astronaut, James Lovell (of Apollo 13 fame), flying with Frank Borman and William Anders, emerging from the dark side of the moon during their historic first circumlunar mission, Apollo-8, in December, 1968.
"Santa Claus" was the mission code used if sighting a strange object such as a UFO.

"While flying with several other USAF pilots over Germany in 1957, we sighted numerous radiant flying discs above us. We couldn't tell how high they were. We couldn't get anywhere near their altitude."

"While working with a camera crew supervising flight testing of advanced aircraft at Edward's Air Force Base, California, the camera crew filmed the landing of a strange disc object that flew in over their heads and landed on a dry lake nearby. A camera crewman approached the saucer, it rose up above the area and flew off at a speed faster than any known aircraft."

NASA astronaut, L. Gordon Cooper.

"I've talked with people of military and government credentials and position and heard their stories, and their desire to tell their stories openly to the public. And that got my attention very, very rapidly...the first hand experiences of these credible witnesses that, now in advanced years are anxious to tell their story. We can't deny that, and the evidence points to the fact that Roswell was a real incident, and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material was recovered from that crash site..."

Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Mission veteran.

"The next war will be an interplanetary war. The nations must someday make a common front against attack by people from other planets."

Former Five Star General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur, 1955.
In one of the strangest stories in recent years, former Apollo astronaut and Senator JOHN GLENN made a March appearance on the NBC comedy "Frasier" in which he made following comments. Although many have dismissed them as simple humor because of their context -- one of the most popular comedy's on television -- when you actually watch the program, listen to the words and observe Glenn's demeanor, it becomes much harder to dismiss this as “simple episodic comedy.”

"Back in those glory days, I was very uncomfortable when they asked us to say things we didn't want to say and deny other things. Some people asked, you know, were you alone out there? We never gave the real answer, and yet we see things out there, strange things, but we know what we saw out there. And we couldn't really say anything. The bosses were really afraid of this, they were afraid of the War of the Worlds type stuff, and about panic in the streets. So we had to keep quiet. And now we only see these things in our nightmares or maybe in the movies, and some of them are pretty close to being the truth."

Astronaut John Glenn

These remarks were made by NEIL ARMSTRONG at the White House on WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 1994 during a ceremony commemorating the Apollo 11 mission:

"Today we have with us a group of students, among America's best. To you we say we have only completed a beginning. We leave you much that is undone. There are great ideas undiscovered, breakthroughs available to those who can remove one of the truth's protective layers. There are places to go beyond belief..."

Astronaut Neil Armstrong

From the St. Petersburg Times, Florida - February 18, 2004:

ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
Astronaut: We´ve had visitors

"A few insiders know the truth . . . and are studying the bodies that have been discovered," said Mitchell, who was the sixth man to walk on the moon.
Mitchell, who landed on the moon with Alan B. Shepard, said a "cabal" of insiders stopped briefing presidents about extraterrestrials after President Kennedy.

Astronaut Edgar Mitchell

According to a taped interview by J. L. Ferrando, Major Cooper said:

"For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public. Why? Because authority is afraid that people may think of God knows what kind of horrible invaders. So the password still is: We have to avoid panic by all means"

"I was furthermore a witness to an extraordinary phenomenon, here on this planet Earth. It happened a few months ago in Florida. There I saw with my own eyes a defined area of ground being consumed by flames, with four indentations left by a flying object which had descended in the middle of a field. Beings had left the craft (there were other traces to prove this). They seemed to have studied topography, they had collected soil samples and, eventually, they returned to where they had come from, disappearing at enormous speed...I happen to know that authority did just about everything to keep this incident from the press and TV, in fear of a panicky reaction from the public"

Astronaut L. Gordon Cooper

I would like some kind of proof of the "panic" that they talk about.
Has anyone interviewed people in this regard?
Also, I'd like to know how it would destroy religion.
Surely their all powerful god could have peopled other of the planets that he created.
Why would they have to be told about it?
Isn't their religion about living on this Earth?

I think the common rationalization for the Church UFO's is to just use some vague passages from the old testament like alot of ppl do when clasping at straws. The lengths ppl will go to conform it into their religion is often entertaining.

The truth is man is not the center of creation and the universe was not made in 7 days, "bu-but everything is a metaphor".

Yay, quotes from powerful people you think could possibly be in the know. Unfortunately, they add up to a hill of beans. They might sway a few opinions in places like this on certain fence sitters, but we need to work on creating the environment where we can get the media-public demand-media cycle going on stuff like this. Right now, even with all these people of note saying all these things there is no public pressure to get down to the bottom of this subject. And I'm not talking about a few UFO folks filing useless FOIA requests and tiny little groups writing to their congressman or senator...etc.

If folks really cared about this subject they would understand that for a bunch of quotes like these to be used to sway the action, they must put pressure on the media outlets and not the government. If this subject was taken seriously (and it can't possibly be by anyone on the "outside"...just read through the thread titles on this page alone....down right embarrassing and insulting to anyone who has half a brain)...but if it was taken seriously then the media folks would be crawling over each other to scoop the other networks, creating an environment that would lead to better answers (as more people would come forward, etc).

Everyone around here seems so eager to convince people that something is going on and that the truth is out there, but then they don't fully understand public relations enough to get Joe Six Pack to bother. And, suffice to say, without Joe we can't get the answers we need. And in order to hook a fish like Joe, we need to use the right bait.....the crazy tin foil hat stuff (even if it is true) is not the right bait to use when the Joe fish are hesitant biters.....

Where can i go to verify this quote is authentic, and not just made up by some UFO author, like a lot of the others in the list you provided?

Aren't you only justified in alleging, "Here are some quotations attributed to astronauts on UFO websites..." ??

I mean, have you -- or anybody you know -- ever even considered that the posted quotations might in many cases be bogus?

How can you defend yourself against falling for somebody's deception on this subject?

Not so fast. None of these citations are original sources, they can easily be conjured up or altered for dramatic effect by proponents. Don't be such an eager-believer accessory to your own possible victimization.

No, what skeptics see is the ghastly gullibility of kids excited beyond all bounds of rationality by a far-out idea, who don't care to -- or don't even know how to -- check data out.

Here's one example of such a bogus quote:



"At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs."
--NASA's Scott Carpenter



And the email I got from Carpenter, with whom I've had a long professional and personal association:



From:
Date: Wednesday, December 19, 2001 6:37 AM
Jim,
Thanks for offering me a forum. In the past, I've not bothered to refute these and other outrageous reports of my belief in, or sightings of, UFOs (Flying Saucers). They are too preposterous to favor with credibility or honor with reply. You however, raise a different and more important issue, that of the young kids who are not yet familiar with the power of logical thinking, who are unsuspectingly led astray by the glamour of the UFO idea, and who tend to believe the nonsense these twisted minds dream up and post as fact on the Internet. They claim that those who disagree, lie, and challenge us to prove that UFOs don't exist. That's their leg up...proving non-existence is impossible.
So, Mr. Oberg, in order to help set these naive people free of the crazy beliefs they are asked to adopt, feel free to quote me as follows, (and use any adjectives you choose which are roughly synonymous with poppycock): The quote (below) is absolute hogwash and a blatant lie. I never thought it, never said it, and it never happened
NASA's Scott Carpenter "At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs."
I hope the two of us can help set at least some people straight
. Really enjoyed perusing your web page.
All best, and Merry Christmas
Scott

Sent: Wednesday, December 19, 2001 1:06 PM
Jim. Good for you and your follow up. I wish more folks like you would challenge these guys. At least that might get some of the trash off the street.
Happy New Year.
Scott

And maybe some skeptics will not...

After all, what do these purported quotations actually prove?

I'll repeat some remarks I made in a similar thread about 4 years ago:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Since sources aren't given for most of the purported quotations that float around within ufology, and since many of the purported quotations prove to be inaccurate (or taken out of context) when they are looked into in detail, it's not surprising that most purported quotations are simply ignored.

I've spent quite a bit of time looking into some of the relevant quotations, trying to trace them back to their source. It's quite easy to spend a few days looking into a single purported quotation before finding out whether it is accurate or not, and the context within which the remark was made.


I remain of the views I expressed in another similar thread from 5 years ago:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

In that thread, I referred to the quote from the Hoover memo which is given above, i.e.:




"We must insist upon full access to disks recovered. For instance, in the La case the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination."
--J Edgar Hoover


I made the following comments:

While I think that this is an interesting thread, I think that it would be _much_ more valuable if attempts were made in relation to _each_ quotation to provide as precise a supporting reference as possible.

Also, it would be very useful in confirming the accuracy of quotations (and understanding their context) if the supporting references were not simply to websites containing the relevant quotes, but to the actual source documents or source articles (e.g. giving the date and issue of a relevant magazine, rather than a link to a UFO website which states that a comment was made in an interview for a magazine).

For example, in relation to the "La" case comment by Hoover, the consensus is it's a reference to a prank (hoaxed) case in Louisiana. However, there are a variety of interpretations. Some of the discussions in various books do not even agree that the letters are "La", with some books referring to the "Sw" case.

an image of the relevant memo ios available on the FBI's own website at: foia.fbi.gov... (see page 45 of 69)

A follow-up memo (which, by the way, interprets Hoover's annotation as "La" rather than "Sw") is also in the same PDF file at page 38 of 69.

The text of the original memo is online at:
www.nicap.org...

Since internet links quickly become out of date, it would also be useful if _published_ sources of the relevant quotations are given. For example, images of the document concerning Hoover's comment about "La" case are published:

(1) by Randle, Kevin and Schmitt, Donald in their “The Truth About the UFO Crash At Roswell” (1994) at page 200 (in Appendix C) of the Evans hardback edition.

(2) by Swords, Michael D in “The Roswell Report : A Historical Perspective” (1991) (edited by Eberhart, George) at pages 25-26 (in the unnumbered chapter entitled “The summer of 1947 : UFOs and the US government at the beginning”) of the CUFOS paperback edition.


Also, many of the quotations given in this thread have been discussed in various books or online in the past. Quite a few are generally regarded as complete fabrications. It may be helpful to give links or references to discussions of the relevant quotations.

Using the Hoover memo as an example again, the "La" case memo has been discussed by numerous authors - in many books including the following:

(1) Beckley, Timothy Green in his “MJ-12 and the Riddle of Hangar 18” (1989) at pages 42, 43, 44 (in Chapter 3) of the Inner Light softcover edition.

(2) Berlitz, Charles and Moore, Bill in their “The Roswell Incident” (1980) at pages 140-142 (in Chapter 8) of the Granada hardback edition (with the same page numbering in the Granada paperback edition).

(3) Dolan, Richard M in his “UFOs and the National Security State: Volume 1” (2000) at page 69 (in Chapter 2) of the Keyhole softcover edition, at pages 32-33 of the 2002 revised Hampton Road softcover edition.

(4) Korff, Kal in his “The Roswell UFO Crash” (1997) at page 196 (in Chapter 6) of the Dell paperback edition.

(5) Maccabee, Bruce in his “UFO FBI Connection” (2000) at pages 6-7 (in Chapter 1), with image of relevant document at page 292 (in Appendix 2) of the Llewellyn softcover edition.

(6) Mannion, Michael in his “Project Mindshift” (1998) at page 32 (in Chapter 1) of the Evans hardback edition.

(7) Marrs, Jim in his “Alien Agenda” (1997) at pages 120-121 (in Chapter 4) of the Harper Collins paperback edition.

(8) Paget, Peter in his “The Welsh Triangle” (1979) at pages 55-56 (in Chapter 3) of the Grafton paperback edition.

(9) Randle, Kevin and Schmitt, Donald in their “The Truth About the UFO Crash At Roswell” (1994) at pages 91-93 (in Chapter 13) with image at page 200 (in Appendix C) of the Evans hardback edition.

(10) Randle, Kevin D in his “Conspiracy of Silence” (1997) at page 4 (in the Introduction), 267 (in Chapter 12) of the Avon paperback edition.

(11) Randle, Kevin D in his “Project Moon Dust” (1998) at pages 271-272 (in Appendix B) of the Avon softcover edition.

(12) Randle, Kevin D in his “The Roswell Encyclopedia” (2000) at pages 142-144 (in an entry entitled “Hoover Note”) of the Quill softcover edition.

(13) Randles, Jenny and Hough, Peter in their “The Complete Book of UFOs” (1994) at pages 99-101 (in Chapter 7) of the Piatkus softcover edition.

(14) Randles, Jenny in her “Beyond Explanation? : The Paranormal Experiences of Famous People” (1985) at pages 24-25 (in Chapter 1) of the TLC hardback edition.

(15) Randles, Jenny in her “The Pennine UFO Mystery" (1983) at page 211 (in Chapter 15) of the Granada paperback edition.

(16) Redfern, Nick in his “The FBI Files” (1998) at page 7 (in Chapter 1) of the Simon & Schuster softcover edition, with the same page numbering in the Pocket Books paperback edition.

(17) Rux, Bruce in his “Architects of the Underworld” (1996) at pages 7-8, 9 (in Chapter 1) of the Frog softcover edition.

(18) Shawcross, Tim in his “The Roswell File” (1997) at pages 141-142 (in Chapter 8), 174 (in Chapter 11) of the Bloomsbury softcover edition.

(19) Swords, Michael D in “The Roswell Report : A Historical Perspective” (1991) (edited by Eberhart, George) at pages 25-26 (in the unnumbered chapter entitled “The summer of 1947 : UFOs and the US government at the beginning”) of the CUFOS paperback edition.


By the way, there have been several other attempts to collate relevant quotations. Perhaps references to those attempts should be collected as a preliminary step so as to limit reinvention of the wheel?

All the best,

Isaac
