White House: U.S. not hiding ET

The White House has finally confirmed a suspicion long held true by anyone who managed to sit through an entire episode of “Alf”: Extraterrestrials do not live on Earth.

The official government response came in reply to an online petition seeking the Obama administration to “formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.”

Phil Larson, who works on space policy and communications at the White House, crushed the souls of conspiracy theorists and Star Trek fans in one succinct paragraph:

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 Obama administration, perhaps sensing they’ve no hope of getting the Creationist vote, said alien life undoubtedly exists somewhere.

Many scientists and mathematicians have looked with a statistical mindset at the question of whether life likely exists beyond Earth and have come to the conclusion that the odds are pretty high that somewhere among the trillions and trillions of stars in the universe there is a planet other than ours that is home to life.

But, unlike ET, those alien life forms have yet to phone the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue home.

Many have also noted, however, that the odds of us making contact with any of them—especially any intelligent ones—are extremely small, given the distances involved.

The petition landed on the White House doorstep courtesy of a “We the People” online petition set up by Obama administration. To get an official response, a petition must have 25,000 signatures within 30 days.

A petition asking the Obama administration to “stop lying” is only 24,765 signatures short.

Perhaps the best proof that intelligent life exists elsewhere is that humans haven’t been formally contacted. . .

It is entirely untrue to say that Creationists would hold that life cannot exist on other planets. In fact, Christians (and many other faiths) hold to a belief in angels and demons which are, in fact, life external to earth. Ever heard of a belief in heaven? Anyway, even in a more mainstream definition of life, the Catholic church, almost every Protestant denomination and leading evangelical leaders like Billy Graham have pronounced a belief that the Bibe does not in any way prohibit a belief in non-Earth-based life and it is certainly likely.

The reporter should study up on the beliefs of Christians before type-casting.

Not that I believe that aliens have been here or are here, but anyone who believes in the unvarnished truth of government releases is living in a fool’s paradise. Any government. Any country. Any time.

Regardless if there is life or not. One thing can be certain. Just Because there is life does Not mean they will be friendly. We have Animals insects fish that are Not friendly living right here on our Planet. What makes ANYONE think that just because we find other Life it will be friendly to us? How do we know they may not regard us a Pest like roaches or rats? How friendly are we with Pest? Living in a Fool’s Paradise is thinking that other live especially Intelligent life is Friendly.

Look what we did right here on our own Planets groups like the Indians. We came from Europe Univited, Conquered the Indians..stole their Land. What makes anyone THINK the same may not occur with beings from another world. Friendly? I dont think so. Infact they MAY want to Place the Human Race in cages and Zoos much like we place animals on our own planet. Instead of Apes in cages while people gawk at them we could end up the same. In cages while other folks gawk at us. or Turn us in to Pets.

I think the human race should just Leave well enough alone. THey aint trying to contact us so we dont need to contact them. I dont know Why folks think ET Has to be friendly. what if they are not and our weapons are in affective? Then WHAT DUHHHHHHHHHH?

well i don’t believe in E.T, but even if I did why would I or anyone else think that the white house would tell the truth if they really knew that he/it existed? The craziness that something like that would create would be off the charts!

[...] White House Denies Any Knowledge Of Aliens Or That Life Exists Outside Our Planet [...]

Why should we believe that there is intelligent life on some distant planet? After all, near as I can tell, there’s no intelligent life here on earth.

They exist, they have probed me three times, took me right from the bowling alley……

Seriously, if it happened here, how could we think it hasn’t someplace else, regardless of your belief of where we came from.

That statement is all BS. There is genetic underground testing going on right now in Dulce, New Mexico underground. The US gov is doing testing on gray beings with humans and the gov wants to cover this up totally. What do you think area 51 is for. Its just a cover for Dulce. Google this and you will see. Obama is part of the New World Order and wants you to believe every lie that he states. What they say here is actually the exact opposite of the truth! Don’t listen to the cowardly US GOV!

Did they also forget about the man from Mars who goes out at night and eats up cars? He eats Cadillacs, Lincolns too, Mercuries and Subaru.

Hey Antime

Your right to a degree, but we are talking INTELLIENT life. Charlie Sheen is far from Intelligent. So that excludes him.

I have two good friends of mine who work at the Los Alamos lab in NM. Both are Phd’s working on top secret projects. Both have told me the same story…the Area 51 crash was real and that the aliens were cryo’d and stored underground at an AF Base in California. He told me the name of the base, but I can’t recall it now….it was the big base there. They are occasionally researched/autopsied (Whatever you want to call it) and in doing so are flown back and forth between labs for the research. One of these friends confided in me that he had flown on the same jet with TWO of them while they were being shuttled back and forth. They would not let him take a peek, much to his disappointment. He told me on more than one occasion that the Men In Black movie is “not that far from the truth” with respect to how the bodies were handled, stored, etc. Both gentlemen told me basically “everybody” at Los Alamos and certain AFB’s know about this, but choose not to talk it up.

If it is a lie, they told it, not me. They swear on a stack of Bibles it is true.

Cool huh?

I DO believe we are being “watched” though..I dont want to be alive if we do stumble across Hostile beings from another world. Some of the dreams I had about UFO’s(Thanks to Youtube (UFOs are Real) scared the naked crap out of me. I was sooooooo glad they were dreams. Infact had a dream that came very close to independence day(Will Smith movie) and you guessed it. They were Not Friendly and came to Earth to capture us and make Pets out of us as well as a source of food they were serving on a menu. OMG. and No I wasent Smoking or Drinking anything when I went to bed. However I did have four greasy huge fried chicken wings and then went to sleep, Big Mistake :-)

Now we all know they have them aliens at Area 51 and even the president is not privy to that information. All of them scientist live underground with the aliens cutting them up and trying to figure out where they came from, you know like in the movie Independence Day. The higher being who created the heavens and the earth meaning he created all things if that power wanted us to be in contact with aliens another race it most like would have happened. Then who’s to say there may be aliens walking amoung us and we never go. My point just live life who really has time to wonder if there are aliens or if there are not the money spent trying to find out should go towards other things that we humans need on this earth.

The US government must not know what they’re talking about. Because my buddy ET and I are just sitting here chilling and catching up on the latest news. ET says that he’s a real alien.

The government is lying. It is a fact that aliens in human form have been living and working amongst the human race for decades and perhaps longer.
