Long-hidden Winston Churchill essay on aliens surfaces
foxnews.com ^ | James Rogers

Posted on 02/19/2017 4:12:06 PM PST by RoosterRedux

A fascinating essay that lay hidden for decades reveals Winston Churchill’s views on alien life.

The never-published essay has been in the archive of the National Churchill Museum in Fulton, Missouri since the 1980s, when it was given to the museum by the wife of Churchill’s publisher, who had died. Last year the museum invited Israeli astrophysicist Mario Livio to review the essay, which he discusses in an article published in the science journal Nature.

Livio notes the British wartime leader’s passion for science and technology in the 1939 essay, as well as Churchill’s thoughts on extraterrestrials.

Apparently influenced by events unfolding at the time, Churchill voices his concern about human progress and describes the possibility of aliens. “I, for one, am not so immensely impressed by the success we are making of our civilization here that I am prepared to think we are the only spot in this immense universe which contains living, thinking creatures, or that we are the highest type of mental and physical development which has ever appeared in the vast compass of space and time,” he wrote.

Oh. We’re talking extraterrestrial aliens, not the ones who run for the border. Many think our earth has been quarantined for now, due to mankind’s warlike nature.

There is so much about science and biology that we don’t really know or cannot really explain to everyone’s satisfaction. Read about The Manhattan Project, and you will know what I mean. Some of the stories told are at turns, breathtaking, mystifying, incredibly tragic and yet still unexplained to this very day.

I only vaguely remember Fireside Theater...and even then the memory is fleeting.;-)

But they were really funny.

There is “something going on” i am quite certain there is, WHAT it is EXACTLY... i am not sure...

Now the bigger question is: How much about this does the government know and how much of it are they NOT telling us.

Other Related questions:

Are governments leveraging this knowledge as a way to hold/gain power?

Are governments hiding how much they know because they still cannot figure it out and them not knowing would undermine the populace’s confidence in them?

If they are holding back anything are they holding back because they do not trust this knowledge to the citizens.

Besides the base information of their existence is there anything else they are holding back? Things like technology or spiritual knowledge?

Apocryphally someone asked Oppenheimer how it felt to be the first human to help set off an atomic bomb and he corrected him “in this Era”.....

Makes you think...

They will withhold this from Trump but if he finds out, he trusts the people of our nation and will disclose this.

Oh I am definitely of the opinion history has repeated itself several times before now Grace.

There are no new ideas under the sun.

All of this has happened before.

I never bought into the theory that the government has undeniable evidence of aliens visiting the Earth, and has kept it secret because the information is so explosive it would cause widespread panic. If that were the case, the Democrats would have leaked it by now.

“The Making of The Atomic Bomb” by Richard Rhodes.
Subject; Manhattan Project.

I was reading this at work years ago (1995) at an office job.
My supervisor saw it at my desk, and she about passed out.
“Is that your book?” she stammered. This is way before 9/11.
I would not be seen in public browsing through this book now.
Certainly not at any public airport!

The rumor is that those who might have such information will not trust ANYONE of either party with such information.

Not even the President.

Could very well be that UFOs are being flown by a branch of humanity that beat us to the punch when it came to developing technology.

They would not need interstellar tech to get here at all if this were the case, all they would need would is enough time to advance ahead of us.
