'Alien' actor claims he has encountered aliens

Yaphet Kotto, who starred in Ridley Scott's 1979 movie 'Alien', has had close encounters of his own.
The 77-year-old, who is well known for his role as Chief Engineer Parker in the science fiction horror classic, stated during a recent interview that he has been visited by aliens since he was a child.

"I've only told my wife, my rabbi, and a psychologist," he told Noel Ransome from Vice magazine. "This is the first time I'm talking about it."

According to Kotto, his experiences began when, at the age of six, he encountered an 'entity' at his home that was "at least five or six feet tall with an elongated head."

He would go on to experience all manner of anomalous phenomena throughout his life including a sighting of "a UFO as big as the Yankee Stadium turned upside down."

He also believes that some of his UFO encounters were triggered by meditation sessions.

"I really don't care whether anyone thinks I'm delusional," he said.

How do you know? Besides that, it is completely irrelevant. All that matters is data.

A good story is entertaining...but alien DNA would be Earth shattering. Show me the ET DNA...or something concrete that's of alien origin. Anything else is just a good story.

Who says that UFO's have engines?  There is no way that an advanced alien civilization will be using a propulsion system that involves pushing air around!  They will use space-time bending, or some other such presently undiscovered (by us) wizardry.

This is a classic excuse. The deafening silence is not due to career problems. The same excuse is used all over fringie territory to explain away the lack of reports from knowledgeable people. The fact of the matter is that your career would be elevated by being able to report the first incontrovertible evidence of alien visitation. But knowledgeable people don't jump to bizarre conclusions on flimsy evidence.  I saw a "rotating" cloud in full sunshine one winter day. That is what my brain interpreted. But that cloud was not rotating. It was a lenticular forming on the left and dissolving on t... [More]

Edit: Sorry, my original response to you was a bit...emotional. I do not react well if anybody tells me to take some form of recreational drug/mind altering substance. I will not tell you or anybody else to stop putting whatever they please into their bodies. But I will also kindly ask you to never, never, suggest again that I should go and some psychedelic **** into my body that doesn't belong there, no matter what effects you believe it has. I would have taken you more seriously, and reacted better if you had recommended something like meditation. And no, I will not buy your book. I do actua... [More]
