On May 2, 2010 former Canadian Minister of Defense Paul Hellyer, who is,

"the longest serving current member of the Privy Council, just ahead of Prince Philip,"

...publicly defended extraterrestrial civilizations as he believes that not only have extraterrestrials visited Earth but they have also contributed positively to human technological advancement, as was reported by Canada's CTV News.





According to one source, the Queen's Privy Council for Canada is the,

"full group of personal consultants to the monarch of Canada on state and constitutional affairs, though responsible government requires the sovereign and/or her viceroy, the Governor General of Canada, to almost always follow only that advice tendered by the Cabinet - a committee within the Privy Council composed of elected Members of Parliament.


Those summoned to the QPC are appointed for life by the governor general as directed by the Prime Minister of Canada, meaning that the group is composed predominantly of former cabinet ministers, with some others having been inducted as an honorary gesture."

"The reality is that they've (extraterrestrials) been visiting Earth for decades and probably millennia and have contributed considerably to our knowledge. Microchips, for example, fiber-optics, they are just two of the many things that allegedly - and probably for real - came from crashed vehicles," Defense Minister Hellyer said.

Former Minister of Defence Hellyer accused Cambridge professor Stephen Hawking of spreading misinformation about extraterrestrial civilizations.


In an interview, Mr. Hellyer said,

"I think Prof. Hawking is indulging in some pretty scary talk there that I would have hoped would not come from someone with such an established stature."

Hellyer further added,

"I think it's really sad that a scientist of his repute would contribute to what I would consider more misinformation about a vast and very important subject."

On April 25, 2010, Prof. Stephen Hawking implied potential contact with extraterrestrial civilizations is dangerous.





He stated on a Discovery Channel documentary,

"If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans."

While there may be benign aliens out there, Prof. Hawking says trying to make contact is "a little too risky."


There are many credentialed witnesses to friendly Off Planet Cultures.


For example, Examiner has also identified two whistle blower eyewitnesses to extraterrestrial civilizations from U.S. government secret programs, including former U.S. Department of Defense scientist Arthur Neumann, and former DARPA Project Pegasus participant and attorney Andrew D. Basiago.


Mr. Neumann and Mr. Basiago have independently testified they have met with representatives of a friendly, advanced humanoid Martian civilization.

Transparent public diplomacy and cooperation with ethical extraterrestrial civilizations, by the evidence, is not a threat to humanity, and is in the strategic best interest of the U.S. and the entire world community.

As an illustration of where canonical academia - as opposed to exopolitical research - stands regarding the extraterrestrial presence, The Journal of Cosmology, a scholarly journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics associated with the Department of Astronomy, Center for Astrophysics, Harvard-Smithsonian, Cambridge, MA has published the views of 12 scientists commenting on Prof. Hawking's statement regarding extraterrestrials.


According to the Los Angeles Times,

"Some criticized Hawking's use of human behavior to predict what aliens would do, but others said that human behavior was a reasonable yardstick. Few, however, questioned the premise of Hawking's statements - that alien life forms probably exist and we are likely someday to encounter them."




Paul Hellyer and the 'Decade of Contact'

On September 25, 2005, the Hon. Paul Hellyer, former Minister of Defense of Canada (1963-1968) and former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada under Prime Minister Pierre E. Trudeau, made an extraordinary speech at the University of Toronto, becoming one of the first statesman of a major NATO nation to express public concern about apparent U.S. plans to weaponize space for a possible interplanetary war against ethical extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth.

Examiner readers can view a video of that historic speech by Paul Hellyer, which was billed as:

"Hon. Paul Hellyer At Exopolitics Conference (Toronto)

Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Defence Minister endorses the validity of Colonel Philip J Corso's Book "The Day After Roswell" and agrees with Alfred Webre's Proposal of "A Decade of Contact" with Extra-terrestrials, rather than interplanetary War."




Paul Hellyer









In the months following Paul Hellyer's speech, Gordon Heath wrote about Mr. Hellyer's political graduation into exopolitics in "Paul Hellyer and the Politics of Exopolitics," an excerpt of which states:

"Paul Hellyer, a former Minister of Defence in the Pearson Government, has announced his belief that UFOs are real and that the US is developing weapons systems for space which are to be used against alien craft entering earth's airspace. He voiced his opinions at the recent '2005 Toronto Exopolitics Symposium'.

"Exopolitics is a new term used to describe the study of the politics of extraterrestrial contact. It is usually discussed in a context which assumes that enough evidence exists from existing UFO reports to conclude that some UFOs are craft that are piloted by beings originating from other planets and solar systems.


Hellyer's comments received some coverage in the national media and stirred some interest and reaction from the public, mostly from those who have some interest in UFOs"….




Hellyer Believes in Public Role in Government Response to Alien Contact

"Hellyer has stated his belief that elected governments have been largely excluded from information which is held within the bureaucracy about UFOs. He has in fact used his own experience to buttress this argument.


"UFOlogy has not made great strides in finding conclusive, unambiguous evidence for the ETH (Extra-terrestrial hypothesis) or any other theory on the origin for unexplained UFOs.


Despite this failure, many UFOlogists have evaluated the evidence and concluded for themselves that the ETH is the most likely explanation for the phenomena.


Given the potentially serious implications of this hypothesis, it makes sense to seriously investigate the potential implications of this hypothesis and to seek answers to the following questions:

  • Who are the visitors?

  • What do they want from us?

  • How are our governments reacting to this presence?

  • Are government agencies hiding information about UFOs from the public?

"Paul Hellyer is the perhaps the first former senior Canadian government minister to suggest that these questions are important policy questions and that the public has a right to be involved in the development of policy regarding the response of government to possible extra-terrestrial contact events."




What astrophysicists and astronomers have to say about Hawking's statements on extraterrestrial civilizations

The following are excerpts from some of the responses of 12 astrophysicists and astronomers to Prof. Stephen Hawking's on extraterrestrial civilizations, as published in the Journal of Cosmology.

"Cosmology" (from Greek κοσμολογία - κόσμος, kosmos, "universe"; and -λογία, -logia-, "study") "is the study and understanding of existence in its totality, encompassing the infinite and eternal, and the origins and evolution of the cosmos, galaxies, stars, planets, earth, life, woman and man."

As stated by Hawking,

"To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational. The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like..."

According to Hawking aliens,

"would be only limited by how much power they could harness and control, and that could be far more than we might first imagine... Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach... I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet...


If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans."

The full responses can be accessed in the Journal of Cosmology here.

How to evaluate these "cosmological" responses by mainstream science


  1. Scientific incompetence

    As previously stated by Examiner in Scientists at UK Royal Society ET conference unaware of extraterrestrial presence on Earth, these mainstream Cosmology scientists seem largely unaware that extraterrestrial civilizations are visiting Earth at present, and ignorant of the empirical evidence for their presence.


    A summary of this empirical evidence is available here and here. Clearly the "canon" of science excludes any information outside of the 20th century paradigm that humanity are the only higher intelligent species in Earth's immediate environment.


  2. Paul Hellyer's vision

    Paul Hellyer continues to be the only statesman who has spoken out about the dangers of interplanetary war the U.S.-U.K. military-intelligence establishment seems to be carrying out.

    Although other former government officials have come forth to affirm the extraterrestrial presence, none have publicly expressed concern about space weaponization and space warfare against ethical extraterrestrials.
