Sir Winston Churchill Believed In The Existence Of Aliens and Covered Up A Wartime Military UFO Encounter Bill Knell

Sir Winston Churchill was a man far ahead of his time. He started life as the son of an American mother and an Aristocratic British father. He immediately had the benefit of looking at things from the perspective of two unique cultures instead of having the kind of tunnel vision that can come from the background of just one. Churchill used that gift and so many others to see Hitler as a threat long before others did and become an early voice against Nazi tyranny. Then, when it finally became obvious to his fellow countrymen that Hitler could not be placated into peace, Churchill became the Prime Minister of England and led his nation through one of its most challenging times.

Churchill was a force of nature. He had the ability to read a situation for what it was without the clutter of political correctness or intellectual bias. That's why it did not surprise me to discover that he accepted the idea that there may be life forms in the vastness of space other than just human. Winston Churchill authored an eleven page essay in 1939 titled, Are We Alone In The Universe? Never published, it was part of a large number of personal papers that were stored for years before being sent to the U.S. National Churchill Museum in Fulton, Missouri during the 80s. The typewritten essay was rediscovered in 2016 by a new Curator and passed to Astrophysicist Mario Livio in 2017.

Livio, who was the first to fully read and examine the essay, called it a “great surprise” and went on to say, “Winston Churchill is best known as a wartime leader, one of the most influential politicians of the twentieth century, a clear-eyed historian and an eloquent orator. He was also passionate about science and technology.” Churchill's essay revealed he believed that "thinking creatures" must exist somewhere in the "immense" universe. The much honored Statesman also provided sound reasoning to back up his belief: “With hundreds of thousands of nebulae, each containing thousands of millions of suns, the odds are enormous there must be immense numbers which possess planets whose circumstances would not render life impossible... I am not so immensely impressed by the success we are making of our civilisation here that I am prepared to think we are the only spot in this immense universe which contains living, thinking creatures.”

Considering he wrote the essay in 1939, it is impressive that Churchill also believed that science and technology would eventually allow us to visit other worlds: "One day, possibly even in the not very distant future, it may be possible to travel to the Moon, even Venus or Mars.” It would be easy to extrapulate Churchill probably believed that life from out there could possess the technology needed to visit our planet as well. And he must have given Alien Life a lot of thought since he went on to write that a life-supporting planet would have to exist “between a few degrees of frost and the boiling point of water”.

During World War II Churchill regularly consulted scientists and engineers. He became an avid supporter of using science and technology to their fullest in the UK Government and Military. He was the first Prime Minister to appoint a Science Advisor and supported the development of Nuclear Weapons. Mario Livio pointed out Winston's enthusiasm for science at a conference recently held in Boston: “The science-friendly environment that Churchill created in the UK through government funding of laboratories, telescopes and technology development spawned post-war discoveries and inventions in fields from molecular genetics to X-ray crystallography.” However, Churchill's belief in Aliens was not previously known until it was revealed in his rediscovered essay.

Just because Churchill supported science projects and believed in Aliens doesn't mean he was above covering up UFO encounters. In 2009 the UK MoD released a number of files related to UFO reports it received. Some information in those files indicated that's exactly what happened. During a World War II meeting with U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower (Supreme Commander of all Allied Forces in Europe) Churchill spoke about the sighting of a UFO by an RAF Bomber crew returning from a mission. Although no details about the actual event are available, it's easy to guess the object was advanced enough to preclude any thought that it might have been of German or Japanese origin. The Prime Minister decided that the incident should be covered up. He was concerned that an already war weary public would panic if they were told our world was being visited by extraterrestrial beings. A living relative of one of Churchill's wartime bodyguards verified the story.
