"More than 17,000 Americans demand that Team Obama tell the nation exactly what it knows about aliens...."
The White House responds:
Thank you for signing the petition and asking the Obama administration to acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence here on Earth. The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye.
The White House's Phil "Larson did leave the possibility of alien life open for debate, admitting that 'among the trillions and trillions of stars,' the odds are 'pretty high' that a planet like our own may support life, says Britains Daily Mail. But because the distance between planets is so vast, the likelihood of contact with actual extraterrestrials is still 'extremely small.'"
Look, if the known universe is some 16-18 billion years old (since the theorized Big Bang) and if an unknown but high number of solar systems such as our own have come and gone in that time and if there was evolution in those as is theorized here, then beings as intelligent and as advanced as we are could have continued advancing for billions of years and still exist. If so, just how advanced would they be right now? Some people conjecture that we were planted here by such beings. Who planted them then where they started?
None of that works for the Biblical literalists who take the six days of Genesis as literal 24-hour days. I don't take it that way though.
What is clear though is that the government tells the general population blatant lies. I definitely do not rule out extraterrestrials having visited Earth. It would be irrational to rule it out without knowing. If beings are as advanced as we will be in a billion years are here now, they certainly could be here without showing themselves.
Who are the watchers? Who are the angels? The disciples reported that Jesus was resurrected in the flesh and then physically ascended. Where is he physically right now? What shape(s) has he taken?
I know these are rather "unintellectual" questions, unsophisticated, but I don't care what snobs think. I haven't found snobs to be particularly honest types anyway.
Regardless, may God bless everyone in the Universe.
