Bonfire Of The Vanities, UFO STYLE

All links 'open to new window'

We all knew it would happen.

At least some of us who’ve been around Ufology for a while knew it was inevitable: that even bloggers who claim membership in our diverse UFO community would snipe at Dr. Edgar Mitchell.

Because of the coverage he received,they got envious, and so they couldn’t restrain themselves and rushed to marginalize his statements. They even insinuated Dr. Mitchell was lying.

Remember, while many of these negative bloggers seem to pack the integrity of a card-carrying Bushee, Dr. Edgar Mitchell’s integrity has never been questioned by NASA, or anyone else of merit. Mitchell has demonstrated over the decades his integrity and intelligence --showing more of both than all these blogging jakals put together.

Why do UFO researchers and bloggers - who both think that there is something significant in the UFO phenomenon, rush to marginalize the statement of an authentic American hero like Dr. Edgar Mitchell.

It appears to be because they are jealous and because they’re the psychological type who must be right. And so they lower themselves,and our entire community, by using the same debunker tactics. For instance: I’ve never in my 45 years around the UFO phenomenon, read where any debunker has ever apologize to a UFO witness for any statement they have made which turned out to be wrong. Never! And that profile is a statement of truth unto itself.

And it looks from here like several claimed pro-Ufology bloggers owe one of our American heros and greatest astronauts an unconditional apology.

Let’s read about some of the maneuverings now happening on the dark side:

Of course Joe Capp wasn’t the only one to step up to the plate for
Dr. Edgar Mitchell. My absolute favorite comment in all blogs and online magazine articles came from Greg Boone at UFO Mafia. Greg states, "Therefore if one were to question Dr. Mitchell’s character one would best in my book be ready to step outside to the alleyway. I’d be the first one waiting for you."
Please take a look at Greg Boone’s entire UFO Mafia article on this topic in the address below.

Joe mentioned something about certain bloggers rushing to marginalize the statement of an authentic American hero like Dr. Edgar Mitchell. I've viewed a few hundred articles about Dr, Edgar Mitchell's recent statement on the 23rd and it was more than just bloggers. Mainstream media was guilty of such as well and even more so.

Obviously, I wholeheartedly agree here with Joe. Unfortunately, as well as marginalizing, the writers failed to give the readers a more thorough explanation as to Dr. Ed Mitchell’s interests in the paranormal and parapsychology. In the process of omitting such information, they left this American hero looking like something reenacted off of an Enquirer Magazine cover.

So you see, it’s not only the mainstream media and online news that take pot shots at people who they know nothing about on a personal level, this also happens right here within the UFO community and about as often. What it does when they jump in alongside mainstream media with a 'nut' about what was just said by a notable personality regarding UFOs and aliens, it makes us all look like the cranks and weirdos that Stephen Hawking said we are.

If you wish to discount Dr. Edgar Mitchell's cancer cure performed by remote viewing consider this first. It has become well known that the mind can heal the body. This can even be done with a placebo given to a patient without the patient knowing it. When a patient is cured with a placebo this took place with the mind. Imagine for the moment that Dr. Mitchell healed himself not by remote viewing, but by simply believing that this can happen and I AM being healed. And he was because he believed that he was. That is as well a placebo affect and it is said that placebos work as often as pharmaceuticals. The FDA even states, "For a given medical condition, it's not unusual for one-third of patients to feel better in response to treatment with placebo".

The following is what you did not learn about Dr. Edgar Mitchell because the information that was reported over the past 10 days has been horribly twisted and lacking.

You don't have to read everything that are in the links below. Simply click in and eye the page, get an idea and then click on the next. Once you’re done viewing those links, what you’ll have discovered is that Dr. Ed Mitchell is actually a very spiritual individual whose trek in life as well as a professional one, is very inspirational and enlightening and simply not one who nonchalantly delves into the ‘fringe’ psychic and paranormal activities.

After retiring from the Navy in 1972, Dr. Mitchell founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences to sponsor research into the nature of consciousness as it relates to cosmology and causality. In 1984, he was a co-founder of the Association of Space Explorers, an international organization of those who have experienced space travel.

The Institute of Noetic Sciences is an international membership organization with approximately 20,000 members and friends located in all fifty United States and in nearly fifty countries on six continents.

About The Institute

Dr. Edgar Mitchell is the author of " Psychic Exploration," 1974, "The Way of the Explorer," 1996, (revised edition, 2001) as well as dozens of articles in both professional and popular periodicals. He has spent the last 30 years studying human consciousness and psychic and paranormal phenomena in the search for a common ground between science and spirit.

Besides being the 6th man to walk on the moon, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D., CAPT. USN, (RET), was and is a scientist, test pilot, naval officer, astronaut, entrepreneur, author and lecturer. Dr. Mitchell's academic background includes a Doctor of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT. He has received many awards and honors including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the USN Distinguished Medal and three NASA Group Achievement Awards and was inducted to the Space Hall of Fame in 1979 and the Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1998.

Before you go, make sure you go here. Please scroll to the bottom of the page and look at a very short (maybe 2 minute) comment from Dr. Edgar Mitchell.

This link is for all of the bloggers and other media
who found it necessary to demean a great American hero. The 4:03 minute mark awaits you.

Those with an ounce of belief on the subject, need not forget that someone may be watching and that 'someone' has great respect for astronauts.
