Aliens!

I guess there’s a convention for people who believe in aliens going on in Lima, Peru starting on Thursday. The news article has some interesting stories, the kind you usually only hear narrated by Jonathan Frakes.

Seeing isn’t always believing. Wendelle Stevens, a retired U.S. Air Force colonel, said he believed in aliens after having investigated 100 cases, despite never having seen any himself.

Stevens, thought to have the largest archive of photographs of alleged UFOs in the world, says he worked from 1947-49 in Alaska with B-29 planes fitted with special scientific instruments to “detect the visitors.”

His work there began the year the U.S. military is believed by some to have hushed up two purported crashes of alien spacecraft within a month. The Air Force denies the stories.

Stevens, who said he did not believe in aliens before his work, said it was his job to debrief the crews of the B-29s and recounted how “the radio frequency spectrum went completely haywire … and the temperature in the airplane increased. (The crew) looked out and there’s a disc next door,” he said.

He said the crew shot photographs with four different types of camera, but the military suppressed the pictures. No Air Force spokespersons could immediately comment on his remarks.

Do you believe in aliens? Or (more relevantly) do you believe they’ve visited us?
