Astronaut Who Walked On The Moon Believes Aliens Came To Earth To Stop Nuclear War Between The U.S. And Russia

By all accounts during the Cold War, the U.S. and Russia should have completely annihilated each other many different times, what with both country’s massive, massive stockpiles of nukes all pointed directly at each other’s major cities, on what amounted to a hairpin trigger.

We didn’t, though. You and I are here, sans nuclear fallout. Some credit diplomacy, others divine intervention, and at least one Hollywood director believes it was thanks to the providence and negotiating skills of Tom Hanks.

All legitimate theories, but one Apollo astronaut, who walked on the damn moon, thinks it was thanks to aliens.

Sure, discount him, but how many times have you been to space?

That’s what I thought.

In an interview with the Mirror, Edgar Mitchell, who was part of Apollo 14, says the spate of UFO sightings over nuclear facilities during the Cold War were not advanced spy planes, but extra-terrestrial visitors out to ensure our survival.

“My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth.”

“I have spoken to many Air Force officers who worked at these silos during the Cold War,” he continued.

“They told me UFOs were frequently seen overhead and often disabled their missiles.

“Other officers from bases on the Pacific coast told me their [test] missiles were frequently shot down by alien spacecraft.

YES. I completely, wholeheartedly concur. But for you naysayers, who wonder how these ETz could go about preventing us from bombing ourselves back to Roman times, the answer is DUH.

“Given that the Universe is around 14 billion years old, if we’re being visited, it’s unlikely we’re dealing with a civilisation just a few hundred years ahead of us, so stories of aliens managing to disrupt a few of our weapons tests are far-fetched.

“Chances are they’d be millions of years ahead of us and could do anything they wanted to.”

DUH. How the FUCK are you gonna argue that?

You can’t. So all praise be to aliens. You are here because of them.
