Gordon Cooper, Edgar Mitchell, and Buzz Adrin have publically stated their belief that we have been visited by extraterrestrial entities. I pose this
question to forum members...what are your thoughts on this subject.
Gordon Cooper was caught lying, and he backed off of his story about
Edwards but that never gets circulated as much as his original story where he lied:
As to the accuracy of the rest of Cooper's recollection of the "Edwards UFO", eyewitness Gettys had this to say in 1982: "I am amazed that Gordon
Cooper said the object landed -- as far as I know, he never even saw it.... His story sounds kind of funny to me."
Finally Cooper admitted he never saw it:
... Cooper ...evidently had same misgivings about the case. In 1978, in his second interview with Spiegel (this time for OMNI), he evaded any
discussion of the Edwards case by saying, "I'd just as soon not get into the Edwards incident. I didn't get to see anything personally, it was all
second hand evidence really." That it was, and Cooper's caution was commendable -- if perhaps a bit tardy....
it is clear that the "Cooper UFO legend" is quite inaccurate here. No coverup or information loss was involved. The "UFO" never landed. Cooper had
nothing to do with the incident (he was not connected with the film crew in any official capacity, and they had never heard of him)
That's got to
be one of the biggest legends in UFOlogy. For some reason Cooper's admission he never saw anything never get's circulated as widely as his story about
what he supposedly saw and supposedly filmed, but didn't.
Edgar Mitchell never personally saw anything, though he does apparently believe in ET visitation. However I'm not sure what this proves, lots of
people believe in ET visitation, but nobody has proof.
I don't think you can back up your claim about Buzz Aldrin. Yes there are lots of videos on youtube of him saying lots of things, but none if them
I've seen back up your claim. If you think there's a video that backs up your claim, post it, but I'm betting there isn't one.
Moreover he had this to say, that we have no extraordinary evidence to backup the extraordinary claims of alien visitation so he's not going to
believe it until we do have extraordinary evidence. There's an ATS thread on this.
Buzz Aldrin says there are no Aliens!
At least try to get your facts straight my friend. one way to do this would be to quote your sources, as others in this thread have requested. Your
hand-waving argument that "there are videos posted on youtube" doesn't cut it, especially when they contradict your claim in the case of Buzz
