Astronomer Carl Sagan believed that modern physics was not discovered centuries earlier because it was deterred by religious superstition, suggesting that ET's advanced civilization would be due to an unbiased pursuit of science. Human pride and an imposition of politics on science are the best explanations for impeded scientific progress and a closed-mindedness to the most astonishing possibility in history - that ET is here! The first philosopher to have written both a professional article and book in support of ET's probable presence, Dr. Trundle combines his expertise in Ethics, Politics, and Theology, with an impressive array of material from UFOlogists and military experts, to argue that ET has, in fact, been around for quite some time. Illustrated throughout (b/w). Includes a momentous admission from C. McClelland, former ScO, Space Shuttle Fleet, Kennedy Space Center (1958-1992)!
