Some officials and scientists have said they believe extraterrestrials live in our midst, that we may unwittingly be in contact with them on a daily basis or they may even be inside our bodies.
1. Canada’s Former Defense Minister
Earlier this month, former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer told RT he believes aliens are among us: “”[I've] been getting from various sources [that] there are about 80 different species and some of them look just like us and they could walk down the street and you wouldn’t know if you walked past one.”
2. Paul Davies, Arizona State University
Award-winning physicist Paul Davies has said alien life may be “right under our noses—or even in our noses.”
He told CBS News that microbes from outer space may be on the earth or even in our bodies. He also said life may have developed on Earth multiple times, not just once, and that life from different time periods may be alien.
3. Dr. Robert Trundle, Northern Kentucky University
Dr. Robert Trundle, a philosophy professor at North Kentucky University, told the Cincinnati Post in 2004 that he has been “shunned” for his views on extraterrestrials. He wrote a book titled “Is ET Here? No Politically, but Yes Scientifically and Theologically.”
He told the Post: “Does ET exist from a political perspective? No, because the government is afraid of the culture shock and public panic. For the government to acknowledge the existence of extraterrestrials here would be to admit it can’t protect us from them.
“Scientifically, I argue that thousands of well-regarded witness accounts cannot simply be dismissed. I’m talking about pilots who have come forward even though it’s meant they’ve had to undergo psychiatric exams as a direct result.”
4. Head of the Space Research Institute at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences
Latchezar Filipov, head of the Space Research Institute at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, told the Toronto Star in 2009: “”We sent (the aliens) 30 questions about global problems, … and now we have some answers.”
He did not say how the queries were sent, but he did say the answers came as pictograms in crop circles.
The aliens are said to have told Filipov and his team that the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence’s (SETI’s) attempts to detect aliens have failed because of “magnetic fields.” Filipov also said, according to the Telegraph: “Aliens are currently all around us, and are watching us all the time.”
Filipov has worked on a MIR spacecraft mission and has held high-level positions in astrophysics.
