Aliens do exist: says Moonwalker and Pope

This certainly made headlines.

The sixth man to take a jaunty stroll on the moon has something to say - Astronaut Edgar Mitchells claims that aliens do exist!

"We're not alone in the Universe. We have been visited."

According to him, there's been a lot of cover-ups in past 60 years and that there has been a considerable amount of contact.

"I think we're heading toward serious disclosure, but I can't say how fast."

NASA seems to be denying it and are understandably tightlipped.
NASA, of course, is trying to downplay Edgar Mitchell's remarks and is denying that it is involved in some sort of alien conspiracy cover up.

Well, considering there's been all sorts of stories coming up this year, this one is not that bizarre.

Remember that strange story about a supposed UN meeting about UFOs?

According to About.com, [c]iting increased reports of UFOs and alien contact as the purpose of the gathering, sources also stated that there was a timetable set for world disclosure of alien contact-the year 2017.

Oh and my favorite one is the declaration from the Pope himself.

Alright so it was a spokesperson who said it on behalf of the Vatican, but it was still a gesture of acceptance of life on other planets.
Just as there are multiple forms of life on earth, so there could exist intelligent beings in outer space created by God. And some aliens could even be free from original sin, he speculates.

Pretty big step there.

You have to wonder if there is more to alien contact than any of these sources are willing to reveal.
