Neil Armstrong Dies

                                                     Neil Armstrong
                                    August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012

 Neil Armstrong has died at the age of 82 after complications during surgery on his heart. He was born to a Scottish-American family in Ohio in 1930. From an early age he showed a keen interest in aircraft and longed to become a pilot. He joined the US Navy in 1949 and became a naval aviator during the Korean War. After the war he left the US Navy and enrolled at university It was there that he joined the Phi Delta Theta secret society, which is similar to Skull and Bones and Phi Beta Kappa. It's an organization whose members have also included the US President Benjamin Harrison, the actor Burt Reynolds and a Chief Justice of the United States.

After university he got a job as a test pilot at Edwards Airforce Base, in later years the landing place for many Space Shuttle missions. He flew new supersonic jet and rocket planes with the likes of Chuck Yeager. He was very successful and had several narrow escapes from crashing and this led gradually to him being spotted by the talent scouts of the newly formed National Aeronautics and Space Administration- NASA. He joined the Apollo Programme in 1967 after the tragic Apollo 1 fire and ended up as commander of Apollo 11, the mission that we've been told achieved the first manned moon landing. We've been told is the operative word because I doubt that vehemently and have said so several times, EG, see: Whatever secrets Armstrong might have held, he took them to his grave. If the truth about the Apollo missions is ever to be confirmed or denied, it's not going to come from him. On the 25th of August 2012 Neil Armstrong died after surgery on his coronary arteries. Then again, who knows. This event might be the catalyst that will lead to some kind of revelation.

One of the most interesting and little-known facts about Neil Armstrong was that in 1975 he got involved in the quest to find the mysterious "Metal Library" in Peru. (This subject is being currently reexamined by Philip Coppens, see: What motivated him to embark into such an esoteric field of knowledge I don't know. But then again he was always a very deep and private character. He was known to be a shy and uncommunicative man and had as little contact with the media as he could get away with, following his rise to fame when he returned to Earth after Apollo 11. Perhaps his initiation into the secret world of black budget government military endeavour, as well as his acceptance into the dusty halls of elite university fraternities, triggered an awakening into alternative thought. But like all his thoughts, he kept them strictly to himself. If he never revealed the truth about the moon landings then I do not condemn him for it. After all he had a wife, children and parents to care for, and whose lives he valued, like most other people who are given these secrets. My deepest condolences to them.
