Maybe we are not alone

Last month, UFO enthusiasts around the globe waited with bated breath for French officials to announce to the world, â€œWe are not alone.â€ However, the promised announcement date, June 6, produced a postponement, then another, and nothing concrete has developed since. What went wrong?
A spokesperson from GEIPAN, an official semi-government organization set up specifically to investigate the UFO phenomenon announced, â€œWe have ten times the needed evidence to convincingly confirm that extraterrestrials are visiting our planet.â€ Allegedly, a number of researchers within the group are keen to make the information public. Apparently, they have backers in the wider CNES (Franceâ€™s equivalent of NASA) structure within which they operate.
We must remember that the employees of GEIPAN are scientists and by their very nature are highly tentative and cautious. â€œWe just need a little more evidence, and we need to finalize this or that detail,â€ appears to be their mantra.
Nonetheless, the promised announcement was that France was going to officially say on the record that they have concrete evidence that some UFOs are of ET origin. That might be a step forward for any government to date, but it isnâ€™t exactly as convincing as if Barack Obama were caught on camera shaking hands with an extraterrestrial alien at a news conference on the White House lawn.
The word from most governments, the U.S. included, is that confirmation of interstellar life, culture, societal order and advanced intelligence could undermine the stronghold of many theocratic governments. The possibility of exposing religious dogma by replacing it with scientific fact would cause the foundation of many faith-based religions to crumble.
Centuries-old power structures would fall by the wayside as constituents realized a taste of freedom from fear of merciless clerics who rule with iron fists, claiming their methodology is supported by religious doctrine. Once that doctrine is declared invalid, the floodgates will open and anarchy will rule, so they say. There might well be a lot of truth in those assumptions, and maybe itâ€™s time for the world to be free of obedience stemming from fear.
In support of Franceâ€™s forthcoming disclosures, several members of the American scientific community have broken ranks and made disclosures of their own, although they have no way of validating their claims.
According to Lockheed Skunkworks engineer Don Phillips, â€œThe UFOs I saw were huge, and they would just come to a stop and do a 60 degree, 45 degree, 10 degree turn, and then immediately reverse this action.â€
The San Francisco Examiner reported that Neil Armstrong said in an interview, â€œWhen I was working with the Skunkworks with Kelly Johnson, we signed an agreement with the government to keep very quiet about certain things. Anti-gravitational research was going on. We knew there were some captured craft from 1947 in Roswell. They were real. And, yes, we really did get some technology from them. And yes, we really did put it to work.
â€œThe knowledge I have of these technologies came from the craft that were captured. I didnâ€™t see the craft, nor did I see the bodies, but I certainly know some of the people that did. There was no question that there are beings from outside the planet. Are these ET people hostile? Well, if they were hostile, with their weaponry they could have destroyed us a long time ago,â€ Armstrong said.
Those accounts may or may not be true. We will probably never know.
I like the hypothesis of recent critics who said that the French government had second thoughts on the matter, and put the brakes on the expected disclosure because it had a different agenda. Some believe that France has had a long relationship with the aliens, and French officials are attempting to establish a strong position in the intergalactic community to have a leg up on the rest of the world.
The first item on their agenda is to make French the intergalactic language so a system of commerce can be established in their native tongue. The second item is to set up an interstellar distribution system for the wine export business so prices can be raised worldwide due to high demand.
Those allegations are as logical as any Iâ€™ve heard, and they make practical sense. How can we expect the truth from any government, whether it be about ETs or anything else? Governments are designed so that we the constituents can live in a system we canâ€™t understand.
