It’s not news that rock musician Tom Delonge has been deep into the UFO idea for years now. Once again, a celebrity is using his status to “investigate” something that others have investigated to death. Maybe he shouldn’t have quit his day job.
Facebook statuses show Delonge meeting with NASA officials, as well as possibly the President, for what he describes as “An important film on something about space.” Delonge’s interest in space dates back many years, in particular with the well-known song, “Aliens Exist,” which includes the lyrics: “I know the CIA will say/what you hear is all hearsay/I wish someone would tell me what was right.”
I’d bet money he isn’t going to expose UFOs and NASA.
Delonge started the Strange Times website back in 2011. It was successful as other mystery mongering sites were because it fed into the culture of conspiracy belief. The website died a short while later but Delonge didn’t give up on the interest. On July 21, Delonge said that his investigation has led him to “a big breakthrough in something I’ve been studying for over 20 years”. It will be in his new film.
Did he actually meet with the President? It sounds unlikely, but who knows.
To assume that Delonge is the one to cut through the massive red tape of “UFO” secrecy is to assume too much, mainly, a.) there is a breakthrough to be found, b.) that the current administration knows it, and c.) that he was the one to finally discover it as opposed to the hundreds of people over the last 50 years that have looked hard.
Will he expose alien life visiting earth? I’ll guess no. But, if we are lucky, we might get a cool funny film that promotes space exploration. At least I hope. We certainly don’t need any more unsupported mystery mongering about aliens doing business at Area 51.
His fans just wish he’d reunite with the band already. They miss him and fear he’s gone off the deep end.
People will be like “Oh, you believe in UFOs” [laughs], but I’m reading books on physics, I’m reading books on the secret space program, I’m talking to people that work underground for six months at a time, that are confiding in me about the national security initiatives. I’ve literally read 200 books on the subject, and I don’t spend my time looking at UFO reports or talking to little green men. I’m way past that. If anybody tells you there’s no life in universe, you should be turned off. That’s just such a dumb thing to say. It’s totally, universally accepted amongst the country’s elite scientific establishments that there’s life everywhere. The question is what kind, where, how’d they get here, what are they doing when they get here, and how do we communicate with them? That’s when you start reading books about the mind and consciousness, and telepathy and ESP. It’s a whole different program.
