(CNN) – Announcement to all Area 51 fans, believers in the existence of chemical trails and those who deny climate change: Edward Snowden has searched the depths of the US intelligence networks and can report that theories of conspiracy are not true.
As a former CIA employee and National Security Agency (NSA) contractor, Snowden had access to some of the nation's most guarded secrets.
And, like any curious mind with access to the Google version of the CIA, it was looking for answers to some of society's most pressing questions.RELATED
It turns out that the United States Government has no knowledge of any intelligent extraterrestrial life, he says.
"By the way, from what I could see, aliens have never contacted the Earth, or at least they have not contacted American intelligence," Snowden writes in his recent memoirs, Permanent Watch.
In addition, the moon landing did occur.
“In case you're wondering: Yes, the man really landed on the Moon. Climate change is real. The chemical trails do not exist, ”he adds.
The NSA informant again addressed the conspiracies in an episode of the podcast "The Joe Rogan Experience," published on Wednesday, saying "there is no evidence" of aliens, chemical trails and the like.
"I know, Joe, I know you want there to be aliens," Snowden joked Rogan, the podcast host. “I know that Neil deGrasse Tyson is looking forward to extraterrestrials. And there probably are, right?
“But the idea that we are hiding them, if we are hiding them… I had ridiculous access to the networks of the NSA, the CIA, the military, all these groups. I couldn't find anything, ”he continued. "So if it's hidden, and could be hidden, it's really hidden, even from the people inside."
To be fair, this man revealed the existence of a huge surveillance program run by the US Government. UU. and now he lives in exile in Moscow. If the US Government UU. Keep secrets about aliens and UFOs in Area 51, surely Snowden would have been the one to find out. Why are people on the Internet so interested in believing in conspiracy theories? That is a question to which Snowden does have the answer.
"Everyone wants to believe in conspiracy theories because they help life make sense," he said in the podcast. "It helps us to believe that someone is in control, that someone is making the decisions."
