... But it was back in the old days of only 5,000 signatures that the White House did have to respond to this question: We the undersigned strongly urge the President of the United States to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence, engaging the human race.
Immediately release all files from agencies and military services relevant to this phenomenon. That position got more than 12,000 signatures and this is the White House response from the office of Science and Technology policy. It is obviously very considerate.
The US government has no evidence that any life exists outside or planet or that extraterrestrial presence has contacted anyone of the human race.
In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye. Many scientists and mathematicians have looked with a statistical mind-set at the question.
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.
But that's all statistics and speaks to the fact that we have no credible evidence that there is an extraterrestrial presence on earth.
Asked and answered, right? No.
The group behind that petition is now turning to another branch of government to uncover the real evidence. Sort of.
They are sort of approaching congress but well, they've decided to hold a fake congressional hearing; a five-day marathon hearing involving testimony from dozens of witnesses, witnesses questioned by former members of congress in a room at the National Press Club that has been configured to resemble a senate hearing room.
There will be press sections and audience area and witness and committee tables just like the real thing except it's fake. They are calling it a citizen hearing on disclosure.
