Greetings George!

Since the DSS include parts of every book of the Old Testament
except Ester in addition to many other Judeo and pre-Christian
writings, was Dr. Mitchell suggesting that UFOs have a Biblical
rather than a solely extraterrestrial explanation? Although Dr.
Mitchell is the founder of IONS and is very open minded about
things such as UFOs and ETs, the testimony of fellow astronauts
who have had experiences with UFOs would be much more compelling
evidience to people than what his opinions as a non-witness and
a believer are.

The comments of the early Church Fathers, many of which are
still untranslated into English, on things seen in the heavens
or about the non-human beings that once occupied the Earth with
us (and still do?) that I have recently found suggest to me that
nearly all CE-III cases and abduction incidents can be better
explained in terms of angels or demons than ET astronauts.

Are you suggesting that most of the space photos that seem to
depict UFOs which are in the public domain can easily be
explained and are thus IFOs?

With our modern computers we can quickly and easily undistort
space pictures, adjust the brightness levels and to join these
images together seamlessly to create large panoramic maps. In
the old days this was done with exacto blades and air brushes.
Yes, they may have air brushed the odd unexplained spot in the
sky over the Moon but did your friend see anything more extreme
such as airbrushing of what could be a large ET outpost on the
far side of some lunar crater?

I learned about such UFO pictures here in Ottawa when I made
inquiries with the photo analysis units with the Department of
National Defense. Even UFO photos which were taken or sent
voluntarily to DND by witnesses no longer officially exist! With
the Cold War long over, I see little reason to continue to hide
these UFO pictures. With the help of our elected representatives
in government, I am trying to convince them to release all these
still classified UFO photos for a special public exhibit at the
Museum of Photography in Ottawa. I hope this happens soon since
we the people have a need to know the truth.
