Close Encounters Cover-Up
Edgar Mitchell, the sixth astronaut to walk on the moon, has claimed that alien contact has been made, but is being covered up by an elite cabal within the US government. Such a conspiracy claim is nothing new, but coming from an astronaut with a doctorate in science from MIT and who walked on the moon, makes it worth paying unique attention to.
Mitchell's post-NASA career is fascinating. Though he was raised as a Southern Baptist, his experiences in space and on the moon summoned feelings of interconnectness that trancended the traditional religious beliefs he grew up with. He has since founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences, an organization that sponsors research into the powers of conciousness. The institute explores "phenomena that do not necessarily fit conventional scientific models, while maintaining a commitment to scientific rigor." Mitchell also claims that he has been healed remotely by a "dreamhealer" who helped cure him of cancer, apparently with success. He also sits on the board of the Institute for Cooperation in Space.
