Being the world’s most famous spoon bender would be enough for many people, but not Uri Geller. The magician and self-proclaimed psychic has jumped on the UFO and extraterrestrial visitors bandwagon (band flying saucer?) recently and issued annoucnements about them after major news events. Two recent news items caught Geller's attention once again and, as usual, his proclamations are unusual, controversial and have nothing to do with spoons.
“I believe that there are a few extraterrestrial intelligences that are monitoring us. Some come from totally different places in the universe. We are talking about such sophisticated knowledge that we cannot comprehend.”
Geller is confident Earth has been visited by ETs because he’s held a piece of a space ship in his hand – a ‘fact’ he’s upset was not covered in the recent U.S. congressional hearing on unidentified aerial phenomena. He has said before that he thinks they’re benevolent – he believes they will return one day to cure all of our diseases. While that would be much appreciated by humanity – the sooner, the better – Geller sees a more urgent need that that may bring aliens back to Earth, or at least force them to intervene with Earth life, in the very near future.
“Aliens are not going to allow us to go into a nuclear war. I don’t think they would have to land for that – to stop Putin from pressing the button.”
Uri Geller is certainly not the only person to believe that aliens were very upset when Earthlings invented and detonated nuclear weapons – it’s the reason many believe that the UFOs seen around nuclear power plants around the world are not drones but alien monitors. However, Geller seems to be the first to say ETs will interfere with the Russia-Ukraine war and prevent Russian president Vladimir Putin from launching a nuclear strike. UFO investigator Nick Pope had previously stated that Putin’s actions were scaring aliens away from Earth but did not get any more specific. On the other hand, Geller jumped right in spoon first – possibly because he claims to have experience with nuclear weapons in general and Russian nukes in particular.
According to the Daily Star, Geller says he was called upon by the U.S government in 1991 to help convince Russia to sign the Nuclear Arms Reduction Treaty … he claims to have used his psychic powers to force one Russian signatory to approve the agreement. Of course, Geller has no proof he performed this world-saving feat – just like he has no proof that aliens will save the world from Vladimir Putin launching nuclear missiles. While it would be nice if they got involved sooner, that action would certainly be appreciated by all.
The best Uri Geller can do in demonstrating how ETs could interfere with our lives is to point to the recent news from the little space traveler that could – the Voyager I space probe. Launched 45 years ago, it has left the solar system but still sends signals – albeit strange ones. In May, NASA revealed Voyager I is still performing normally but its signals don’t reflect what’s actually happening onboard – something it refers to as “impossible data.” While NASA is trating this as a software glitch, Uri knows the real cause and tweeted it to the world:
“If you ask me, yes – Aliens!”
That’s right – ETs are messing with poor little Voyager I as a way to let us know they’re around and watching us. Sadly, this is more like the SETI equivalent of spoon bending – if you have the power, make a big display and get our undivided attention. Do a loop-the-loop around one of the space stations, completely shut down a nuclear plant or levitate Vladimir Putin – now THAT would get our attention.
Sorry, Uri – as much as we would like to believe aliens will stop a nuclear attack, we need more proof. Can you ask one of them to bend some of your spoons back to normal again?
