EXPLORING THE NATIVE AMERICAN UFO—STAR PEOPLE CONNECTION

With A Bit Of Ritualistic Indian Magic Revealed!

By Sean Casteel

*** Read about some of the fascinating petroglyphs and pictographs of the earliest Native Americans, who responded in reverence and awe to the alien presence that created them. The testimony of Native Americans of our own time is equally dramatic and grounded in mysteries still unsolved.

*** There are many divided opinions among the Native Americans of the present day as to how their people were created. Not all believe in the conventional wisdom as taught by anthropologists. Some believe in the UFO-related origin stories handed down for centuries and see those beliefs made all the more real by continued contact experiences happening in the modern world.

*** Once you have made the leap of faith and accept that the alien presence for Native Americans is real, how do you communicate with these otherworldly “gods”? Learn some of the chants, songs and ceremonies used since ancient times to placate and entreat the great spirits.

The American Indian UFO-Starseed Connection

It is generally acknowledged that the myths and legends of nearly all Native Americans have a rich and varied history of an interaction with the “Sky People” or “Star People” in common with one another. In a book recently reissued by Timothy Green Beckley’s Inner Light/Global Communications, entitled “The American Indian UFO-Starseed Connection,” this idea is thoroughly explored by a number of well-known authors, to include the late Brad Steiger, whose numerous books on paranormal subjects have sold many millions of copies.

UFO BELIEVERS AND UNBELIEVERS

One of the Native American sources Steiger spoke to directly for his chapter told him, “I doubt very much if you will find another Indian who will tell you this, but I don’t believe there is any doubt whatsoever that there are Indian people on the face of the Earth who did not originate on this planet.”

But there exists a schism among Native Americans about their true origin. Some of the Hopi, for example, believe in a tribal descent from the UFO occupants and an ancient culture while others favor the more orthodox, anthropological description of their lineage. Meanwhile, a collection of predictions labeled the “Hopi Prophecies” are believed to predict not only that exact schism of spiritual faith but the coming of the UFOs as well in what sounds like a Native American version of the coming apocalypse.native american indian and ufo

A petroglyph in Arizona is said to show a dome-shaped flying saucer with an arrow on top that represents travel through space. The Hopi maiden on the dome shape represents “purity,” delivering an ominous warning about the future “Purification Day.”

“Those Hopi who survive Purification Day will be taken to other planets,” the Native American source told Steiger. “We, the faithful Hopi, have seen the ships and know they are true. We have watched nearly all our brethren lose faith in the original teachings and go off on their own course.”

ANCIENT ROCK ART FROM THE STARS TELLS THE TALE

There is still much to learn, however, from the faithful of ancient days. Steiger runs through a catalog of petroglyphs, or stone carvings, and pictographs, or stone paintings. Thirty miles northeast of Price, Utah, is the beginning of one of the most unusual canyons in the nation, Nine Mile Canyon.

“Prior to 1100 A.D., the Fremont culture occupied the canyon,” Steiger writes, “and the records they left in the form of petroglyphs and pictographs comprise the heaviest concentration of rock art in the world today. The Fremont people developed their own art style, which, interestingly, was typified by horned, trapezoidal-bodied, human-like ‘anthropomorphs.’ Were these creatures somehow symbolic of nature spirits? Or did they truly represent visitations by beings decidedly different from the Fremont people’s other Amerindian neighbors?”

Another fascinating petroglyph in Nine Mile Canyon consists of a horned person-like figure. To someone of an ancient astronaut bent, the horns may be the sprouting of antennae from a space helmet.

“In this instance,” Steiger writes, “the creature is standing before a row of upraised human hands, which seems to imply awe, reverence or fear. To the human figure’s left, there is a disc-like object. To the disc’s left, there is an upside down human figure faintly etched in the stone.”

In Christina Lake, British Columbia, Canada, one finds a most intriguing pictograph in a natural grotto. The drawing depicts a white disc with black wing-like protuberances hovering over four figures who appear to have bent their knees in an attitude of reverence. Squiggly lines, perhaps suggestive of rays of light, emanate from the top of the object. Longer, more irregular lines extend from the bottom of the disc, possibly portraying smoke or fire.

It is noteworthy that Native American artists – separated by time and thousands of miles – chose to portray not just the appearing of the UFOs but also the awe and reverence with which they as mere mortals had responded to the ships. This is consistent, of course, with similar encounters in the Bible as well as ancient astronaut lore from throughout the world.

MARRIAGES MADE IN THE STARS

Brad and sherry steiger Indian Wisdom

As described in their book, “Indian Wisdom And Its Guiding Power,” Brad and Sherry share lunch with the Uros Indians on their remote island. The Uros honor a mandate not to accept any of humankind’s technology in order to have the Sacred Ones they believe they have descended from return for them in the End Times.

Steiger also discusses the correlations between Native American myths and fairy lore from the European continent, including the notion of mortals of both sexes having amorous relations with beings from beyond.

“The legends of Native Americans contain many accounts of Star Wives and Star Husbands,” he writes. “Although there may be individual cultural differences from tribe to tribe, the basic accounts of the Star Husband could be outlined in this way: A young girl sleeping outside the lodge or wigwam is taken away during the night by the Star People. She awakens to find herself in a different world and the bride of a Star Husband.

“Although life is pleasant in Star Land,” Steiger continues, “the girl grows lonesome for her own people. From time to time, she is permitted to look into a hole through which she can see her tribesmen. But if she grows too despondent, she is permitted to return to her tribe, usually after performing a task which seems to her nonsensical. If a child has been produced by their union, it is usually required that she leave her offspring with her Star Husband and his people.”

A MODERN DAY NATIVE AMERICAN EXPERIENCER

In another chapter of “The American Indian UFO-STARSEED Connection,” we read the first person account of “Dennis,” a Native American, and his UFO encounters, some of which he experienced while undergoing a rite of passage to male adulthood. Dennis hails from a section of New Mexico located between the towns of Grants and Raymond.

“I come from a country,” Dennis begins, “that is 7,000 to 10,000 feet above sea level, with ponderosa and high pines. It is known for what we call ‘spook lights.’ They are usually red or blue. We have a lava flow that is undatable. Some archeologists have tried to date it, but they can’t figure out when it erupted. We have a couple of active volcano areas. There are a few areas which cannot be explored because of the terrain. The Indians have many legends about these areas.

“When I was growing up,” he continues, “I remember seeing lights zip across the sky. There have been archeologists in the area. Most of them don’t make it past midnight. Something scares them!”

A RITUAL OF TERROR

Dennis goes on to talk about undergoing the traditional initiation ceremony.

“What happens is, you are taken out to an area blindfolded and left there. You are supposed to stay in that area for 24 to 48 hours, depending on how big of a wimp they think you are. A few don’t make it. The first time I went out, I didn’t make it. The canyon, just below me, lit up as bright as day. Being very young, I decided that running through the cactus at high speed and jumping barbed wire fences would be safer than sticking around. So I went screaming back to the village.”

Strange clouds have often appeared over Second Mesa (AZ) and have been connected with the disappearance of members of various Native American tribes.

When Dennis tried the ritual again a few years later, a similar thing happened. Only this time, when he saw the large lights, he decided to move in closer and explore. By the time he reached the area that had been so illuminated, the light had dimmed and gone away.

Like Steiger’s Native American friend, Dennis also complains of unbelievers in his community.

“The tradition tells of different types of visitations,” he writes. “I grew up with people who believed that if there was a visitation, it was our government causing it. If we had a flying saucer in the area, it had a U.S. Air Force sticker on it. Later on, these people became unsettled by things they had seen out there.”

As an example, Dennis offers the story of the sighting of a pair of red dots that appeared over the horizon as the tribe was conducting their traditional races. The dots looked like they were sitting right on the mountain. Within a few seconds they took off across the sky. On their way across, they did a “few tricks.” Then they went across the horizon and disappeared. The startled witnesses began to pray and meditate, seeking to find out what was going on.

WITCH DOCTORS AND BABIES FROM THE SKY

Dennis had also heard reports of witch doctors who started their walk in New Mexico and all of a sudden showed up in Mexico, traveling two or three thousand miles in a couple of days.

“The witch doctor who did this was old when I was growing up,” Dennis writes, “and he’s still around. I met him and I remember him from the time when I was two or three years old. He still walks through the desert, still makes his meditation runs and his medicine runs. He has some charms that are very unusual.”

Later, as an adult in the military service stationed in California, Dennis again brushed up against the paranormal.

“Even the Indians that I met in California had legends,” he said. “I got into the Yeti/Bigfoot legends when in I was in the service. I found that many tribes which were up on Mount Shasta all had a joint story. It was about a baby born from a sphere that had fallen from the sky. They [these children] were supposed to be stronger than normal and hairier than normal. They were supposed to have all kinds of abnormal characteristics. They could not speak as we do, yet they communicated among themselves.”

An anthropologist from the Denver Museum visited an area near Dennis’ home in an attempt to investigate and document the region’s strange native legends. The anthropologist set up his camping gear and waited. But at 10:30 P.M., “something” unknown came into the camp that drove both Dennis and the anthropologist out into the unsheltered night. At first, Dennis had warned the visiting scientist to stay close to the fire because only light could protect them from whatever was making its presence felt. Two minutes later the anthropologist was packing up and heading for his jeep. The fear was simply too much for him.

Dennis seems to be speaking of creatures resembling the often-seen small “gray” aliens as the culprit in the above story.

“These creatures are not Bigfoot,” Dennis said. “Their height is about 3’11’ or maybe four feet. I’ve never seen them during the day. I know that they walk on two legs. They are also ambidextrous.”

Dennis said he believes the diminutive creatures love dill pickles. He tried baiting a trap with dill pickles for the creatures but they managed to get the pickles without setting off the trip wires.

THE MAGIC THAT COMES WITH GENUINE CONTACT

lost indian magic cover

Lost Indian Magic

Having established the possibility of an ongoing contact being shared by some Native Americans and the UFO occupants, how has this contact been made manifest in the day-to-day lives of the indigenous earthlings? To answer this question, we turn to another book from Timothy Green Beckley’s Global Communications publishing house called “Lost Indian Magic.”

One learns in Lost Indian Magic” that the Native American method of contacting the spirits that are believed to rule over their lives is to chant or sing to them. “Lost Indian Magic” includes a song intended to serve as a love charm. The words seem to mean that the man singing the song wants to isolate his beloved from the rest of the world.

“Place her standing up on the earth. Where her feet are now and wherever she may go, let loneliness leave its mark upon her. Let her be marked out for loneliness where she stands. I belong to the Wolf Clan. No one is ever lonely with me. I am handsome. Let her put her soul in the very center of my soul, never to turn away.”

Obviously, it is easier to work a love charm on a lonely woman than one surrounded by competing suitors.

That song is followed by one intended to insure the woman’s constancy.

“This woman’s soul has come to rest at the edge of your body. You are never to let go your hold upon it. Let her never think upon any other place. The woman has put her soul into our hands. We shall never let it go!”

There are similar songs included inLost Indian Magic” intended to ensure the faithfulness of one’s spouse. But, interestingly, a song to be sung by a jealous rival is also in the mix. The song is “For Separation of Lovers.” Tobacco is used in this particular ceremony.

“The blue tobacco has come to be your recompense. You have alighted midway between them where they two are standing. You have spoiled their souls immediately. They have at once become separated. Let her eyes in their sockets be forever watching for me. There is no loneliness where my body is.”

The fact that such a song exists for the sake of a jealous rival implies a surprising frankness about human nature. Whatever spirits devised the words seem to be unfazed by a love interest from outside a given marriage. Could it be used as evidence in divorce court?

BIRTH TOTEMS: WHAT’S YOUR SIGN?

nativeamericans

The reader may enjoy another aspect of Native American lore called “The Birth Totem.” It springs from the Native American tradition that everything in life is a circle. This understanding of the cosmos resulted from their observation that the sun moves in a circle, from morning to night and then back again to another morning. The waxing and waning of the moon, from full moon to dark moon and back again, is also a circular movement. They also concluded from the changing of the seasons that the Earth itself moved in a circle as well.

They divided the circular year into 12 “moons,” with each moon possessing its own set of animal, mineral and plant totems. Each of these totems possessed certain qualities that could be passed onto people depending upon the moon under which they were born. The 12 birth totems are similar to the 12 signs of the zodiac we are already familiar with.

As with the zodiac, the characteristics listed for each totem are not necessarily the traits that everyone born under that totem possesses. Each person is unique and moves along in their own way and at their own speed. But those born under the same moon tend to share certain broadly defined qualities.

The fun part is finding your own birth totem moon using the handy chart provided. For example, my birthday falls within what is called the “Rest and Cleansing Moon.” My animal totem is the Otter, and my mineral totem is Turquoise. I’m said to be broadminded, lively, unconventional, perceptive, inventive, self-assured, self-reliant, dynamic, friendly and artistic. I sound like a great guy using this totem system, eh?

THE STORY THAT THE MOONS TELL

nativeamericansfire

In the far reaches of the ever-mysterious desert, the Indian campfires of the long ago heard many a tale worth the telling.

Lost Indian Magic” also provides a listing of sacred herbs to be used in the various ceremonies before it launches into a reprinting of a book from 1918, written by Grace Purdie Moon and Carl Moon, consisting of what the Moons call “A Mystery of the Red Man As He Lived Before the White Men Came.” This long lost and rare book featured paintings and photos by Carl Moon, which Beckley has faithfully reproduced in this newer version.

Surprisingly, for its time, the book is remarkably free of any anthropological bias or prejudice. The authors recount a mystery story that engages the reader from its opening lines and never lets go.

“Out in the region of the sage and the pine,” the Moons write in their Foreword, “in the far reaches of the ever-mysterious desert, the Indian campfires of the long ago heard many a tale worth the telling. Some there were that have been handed down, through the channel of an unwrit tongue, from age to youth – told, retold, and told again until they come to the hearing of even you and me. Thus the ancient tale of the Lost Magic comes to be set down.

“It may be that the legend loses somewhat,” they continue, “in parting with the strange tongue that gave it birth, but the thread on which the crude beads of its adventures are strung runs back even to the first account, and may be of the same spinning.”

The story tells of the protective magic given to the Ah-co tribe by a small bear carved out of turquoise. The artifact is stolen by another tribe who are jealous of the good fortune the bear heaps upon its people. With the bear’s loss comes the inevitable want, woe and disaster for the Ah-co. Seasons pass, but finally the Great Spirit, whose symbol is the sun, goes forth to find the little blue bear and restore it to his people.

Sounds like the kind of story one could envision as a summer blockbuster movie. It’s even a little reminiscent of a “Star Wars” episode with, say, Luke Skywalker going out to do battle for some aspect of the Force while fighting to restore a semblance of moral order to a galaxy far, far away.

In any case, if you’re interested in the ancient astronauts legends of the Native Americans and the spiritual practices intended to obtain the blessings of this powerful alien force, then “The American Indian UFO-Starseed Connection” and “Lost Indian Magic” should be at the top of your reading list. When it comes to contacting the gods of old in today’s world, Timothy Green Beckley’s books often contain just what the spiritual seeker needs in order to reach out and speak to the waiting, ever-patient unknown.

UFOs: ARE THEY FRIEND OR FOE?

“Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers” Could Be More Than The Title of A Sci-Fi Classic

By Sean Casteel

  • There lurks a certain kind of evil within the UFO phenomenon as it prays upon an unsuspecting populace. Read the new book from Inner Light/Global Communications, “UFO Hostilities and the Evil Alien Agenda,” which is bursting at the seams with documented info, frightening case histories and a wealth of photos and art.
  • Real life accounts of UFO atrocities – from strange disappearances to bizarre deaths – are here to be examined.
  • Alert yourself to paralyzing episodes of alien acts of aggression that have blacked out power systems, erased memories and crippled human beings.
  • Abductions? Overflights of our nuclear facilities? Corpses left behind in the wake of a UFO sighting? Had these events been inflicted upon us by a human enemy, they would be considered acts of war. Yet how do we fight this enemy with unknowable powers and abilities?

UFO_Hostilities_And__Cover_for_Kindle

In the 1950s creatures were arriving here to do battle against humankind. They flew over the White House, attacked home and hearth and in general ransacked Mother Earth. But that was only up on the giant Hollywood screen – or so it seemed. A new book indicates that we may have been attacked without realizing it and that the facts have been hidden away by the same folks who declared Roswell a hoax.

In a series of rather astonishing disclosures, the New York Times recently revealed in a provocative front page story that the military had spent over $20 million dollars on the study of UFOs and the creation of an “advanced aerospace threat identification program,” to ascertain if UFOs pose a threat either to individual witnesses or to the entire population of our planet. Fostering heightened speculation, they continue to hide their confidential studies concerning the physiological and psychological effects of UFOs on close encounter victims as well as their influence over commercial, private and military aircraft, and their ability to go so far as to injure by incineration, radioactivity – or other means – those that might have gotten too close to an unidentified object on the ground or in the air. This aforementioned recently published book seeks to ask – and to answer – some very important questions concerning the uncontrollable and unpredictable nature of this perplexing phenomenon.

Once it is a given that UFOs and their alien occupants are real, the next question that must be answered is: Are they friendly or hostile?

Students of the subject will quickly acknowledge that this is not an easy question to answer. There is ample evidence, based on case histories and educated speculation, to argue either case.

With this latest offering from Inner Light/Global Communications, which publisher Timothy Green Beckley has entitled “UFO Hostilities and the Evil Alien Agenda: Lethal Encounters with Ultra-terrestrials Exposed,” one can easily see where this one is coming from. Beckley has assembled the usual suspects from among his team of collaborating writers, all of whom have collectively covered the subject of hostile aliens as thoroughly as one could wish. The resulting tome is 450+ pages of terrifying case histories, photos and art that will leave you wishing for a warm, fuzzy “ET-like” creature to land and relieve you from the dark truths you must confront as you read this gut-wrenching volume of alien evil and human helplessness.

A PRAGMATIC SCIENTIST GRAPPLES WITH THE HOSTILITY QUESTION

mcdonalda a young researcher

The late Dr. James McDonald realized that several close encounters had caused a negative impact on some UFO witnesses. UFOs had also, on many occasions, disabled the engines of automobiles and aircraft, thus creating potentially serious situations.

Dr. James E. McDonald (1920-1971) was a leading member of the University of Arizona’s Institute of Atmospheric Physics. His hypothesis that UFOs were extraterrestrial instruments on information gathering missions and his belief that the scientific reports of the time, including 1968’s Condon Report, were superficially done led him to investigate sightings and to combat governmental impediments against his research.

“UFO Hostilities and the Evil Alien Agenda” reprints a statement McDonald submitted to the House Committee on Science and Astronautics at the July 29, 1968, Symposium on Unidentified Flying Objects, held at the Rayburn Building in Washington, D.C.

“Official statements have emphasized,” McDonald writes, “for the past two decades, that there is no evidence of hostility in the UFO phenomena. To a large degree, this same conclusion seems indicated in the body of evidence gathered by independent investigators. The related question as to POTENTIAL hazard is perhaps less clear.”

McDonald then listed several types of UFO encounter that were potentially hazardous, as when the UFOs seem able to stop a moving car dead in its tracks, to inflict mild radiation exposure and on occasion to inflict more serious physical injuries.

The careful scientist admitted that he knew of at least two cases that he would say involved “overt hostility” on the part of the aliens. One involved a young boy in Beallsville, Ohio, who had to be treated for burns at the local hospital after encountering an oval-shaped object with lights on it. The craft emitted a flash that set the young boy’s jacket on fire.

“There is much more detail than can be recapitulated here,” McDonald writes. “My conversations with persons who know the boy, including his teacher, suggest no reason to discount the story, despite its unusual content.”

Another “overt hostility” case known to McDonald involved burn injuries of an even more serious nature, but he declined to give the details in his report to Congress. McDonald died in 1971 from his own hand, said to be motivated by his wife’s decision to leave him for another man and the ridicule the scientist suffered for his outspoken belief that UFOs are genuine alien spacecraft. His death is still considered “questionable” nearly 50 years later.

THE LEAD MASK MURDERS OF BRAZIL

bradsteiger

Brad Steiger

In the weeks before his death in May of 2018, legendary UFO/paranormal researcher-author Brad Steiger granted Beckley permission to use some of his research involving the subject of hostile UFOs which he had collected early in his career.

In a chapter in the new book called “Patterns of Horror,” Steiger writes, “During the many, many years that UFOs have been actively researched, many widely divergent theories concerning their goals and objectives have been advanced. UFO actions have been interpreted as brotherly, benign, and protective; as indifferent, aloof, and superior; and as inquisitive, aggressively curious, and occasionally militant.

“Certain saucer cultists,” Steiger continues, “who have been expecting space brethren to bring some pie from the sky, continue to deliver saucer-inspired sermons on the theme that the UFOs come to bring starry salvation to a troubled world. The self-appointed ministers who preach this extraterrestrial brand of evangelism ignore the fact that not all ‘saucers’ can be considered friendly. Many give evidence of hostile actions. There is a wealth of well-documented evidence that UFOs have been responsible for murders, assaults, burnings with direct-ray focus, radiation sickness, kidnappings, pursuits of automobiles, attacks on homes, disruptions of power sources, paralysis, mysterious cremations and destruction of aircraft.”

Among the many instances of negative UFO manifestations recounted by Steiger is one that took place in August 1966. Inspector Jose Venancio Bittencourt of the Rio de Janeiro police was faced with what he termed “the most baffling mystery in my twenty-three years on the force.”

The two men went on a UFO skywatch but they ended up dead.

“On August 20,” Steiger’s account begins, “police had discovered the bodies of two electronics technicians, Miguel Jose Viana and Manuel Pereira de Cruz, one-thousand feet up a hillside in the Rio suburb of Niteroi. The bodies had been found after a woman, who lived nearby, had reported to the authorities that she had seen a flying saucer land on the jungled slope of Morro do Vintem. The woman had been so insistent in her claim that police had been dispatched to placate her. The officers had not known what they might find, but they had not expected to find two corpses.”

Beyond the discovery of the dead men, there were further strange details, according to Steiger.

LEAD MASK

As weird as it may seem, the two men had tried to protect themselves by donning a strange lead mask – for what reason?

“Both men had covered their faces with lead masks before they died. Several slips of paper were found near the bodies. Notations on several of the papers had been made in some strange kind of code.”

Exhaustive laboratory tests were unable to determine the cause of death of either of the electronics technicians.

“There was no medical reason, within the ability of the state police lab,” Inspector Bittencourt said, “to detect for the deaths. Our lab men have ruled out the possibility of poison, violence or asphyxiation.”

After the case had been reported in the local media, other witnesses came forward. Mrs. Gracindo de Souza, wife of a member of the local stock exchange, told police that she and her daughter had been driving in the area and had seen a UFO hovering over the clearing where the bodies were later discovered. In addition, a watchman, Raulino de Matos, saw the technicians arrive at the mountain in a jeep with two other men. When the four started to climb the hillside, de Matos had paid no further attention.

The dead technicians were found lying side by side, their arms at their sides. There were no signs of a struggle. Investigators did find blood nearby, but laboratory tests established that it had not come from either of the victims. The masks that covered the men’s faces were the kind commonly used in electronics to protect the eyes from burns.

When premiere UFO researcher Jacques Vallee studied the case notes, he concurred that the two men had been witness to a UFO. Vallee even went so far as to say that the two men were at least hopeful, if not expecting, to witness such a craft due to the lead masks that he theorized they intended to use to protect them from any harmful rays.

vintem-hill-lead-masks-deaths1

Authorities examine the bodies of Miguel Jose Viana and Manuel Pereira de Cruz.

After an extensive month-long investigation, the Brazilian police admitted their failure to solve “the lead mask murders.”

“Crude lead masks,” Steiger writes. “Two dead men in their unruffled Sunday suits, lying side by side. Strange, undecipherable codes. Two other unidentified men who may have also been victims, their bodies yet to be discovered.

“Are these clues to a murder mystery which has baffled the most determined investigators? Or are they additional manifestations of a malignant, yet intelligent, course of action which, when viewed in a certain perspective, will indicate an ever-increasing pattern of horror of worldwide significance?

“To be direct: What of the UFOs that had been sighted hovering above and landing on the hillside on the day the technicians were killed and the day their bodies were discovered? Had the two electronics technicians kept a rendezvous with the UFO occupants and found, to their ultimate terror, that the aliens were not the benign space brethren they had been led to expect? Had Viana and de Cruz discovered that some extraterrestrials have come not to issue pronouncements of universal peace, but to conquer?”

ALVIN MOORE AND THE BLOODSTAINED HANDS OF THE ALIENS

Diary of a CIA Operative

Diary of a CIA Operative by Alvin E. Moore

One of the chapters contributed by publisher and editor Beckley concerns Alvin Moore, one of the better credentialed figures in the field of Ufology.

Moore was educated at the U.S. Naval Academy plus the George Washington School of Law and Louisiana State University. He worked as a patent engineer and attorney for the Werner von Braun team of space scientists. He was also a nautical scientist in the employ of the Navy and a CIA intelligence officer. Beckley would later publish a book by Moore called “Diary of a CIA Operative.” Moore spent nearly 25 years researching mysterious events attributable to UFOs and extraterrestrials.

“His conclusions are utterly shocking,” Beckley writes, “and certainly deserve further investigation despite attempts by so-called ‘serious Ufologists’ to sweep this aspect of the phenomenon under the cosmic rug.”

According to Moore, aliens known as “Skymen” have been coming to Earth and exploiting it for many years. Some of them have homes in caverns on the moon, Mars and its satellite Phoebus, Jupiter as well as among the asteroids. Many more originate from much nearer to the Earth’s surface, from “Sky Islands,” or even from within the hollows of our planet and possibly underwater hangars. Sky chemicals and electrostatic gravity-like force of the alien Sky Islands and Skycraft have caused legions of accidents. Skymen have kidnapped a multitude of people and have long extracted blood from animals and men, as well as committed mysterious murders.

One of the case histories Moore collected and wrote about was this one:

On the night of May 10, 1951, police found a young woman screaming on a street corner in Manila. She was crying out that she was being bitten by something and seemed to be fighting something in the air around her. She was eighteen years old and her name was Clarita Villanueva. The police arrested her. She said she was being bitten by something that looked like a man with big bulging eyes, wearing a black cape, and able to float in the air.

Clarita Villanueva

Clarita Villanueva shows bite mark on her shoulder caused by mysterious creatures with large, bulging eyes.

After she was locked up in a cell, she began screaming that the thing was coming at her through the prison bars. A policeman unlocked the door and brought her out, still screaming. And then he was astounded to see punctures that looked like teeth marks being formed on her arms and shoulders. The next morning, in the presence of policemen and Medical Examiner Dr. Mariana Lara, the screaming girl was again attacked by a being or object, invisible to the men. For five minutes, the punctures appeared on her arms, the back of her shoulders, and the back of her neck. Then she fainted.

The Mayor of Manila and the medical examiner accompanied the woman in a car to the prison hospital. On the way, she began screaming again, and the horrified men saw what looked like teeth punctures appear on both sides of her throat. They saw that her arms and hands were badly swollen from previous punctures. Obviously, this was a case of blood extraction by a floating being or object – probably object – that could be made invisible.

“A number of persons who have been captured by alien ‘Skymen’ have reported their extraction of ‘blood samples,’” Moore said. But the aliens’ need for the blood probably goes beyond the mere taking of samples for medical reasons. Still, the samples’ ultimate purpose remains unknown. Also, the UFO invisibility factor, as in the case of the Manila woman being bitten by unseen teeth, has been studied extensively. The late abduction pioneer Budd Hopkins, in his 2003 book “Sight Unseen: Science, UFO Invisibility and Transgenic Beings,” writes at length about events like alien ships that appear in broad daylight on a family’s front lawn to carry out an abduction, yet the whole event remains completely hidden from the neighbors.

A SERIOUS CASE OF RADIATION BURNS

Artist Carol Ann Rodriguez depicts the Cash-Landum UFO being escorted by a U.S. military helicopter. All the witnesses suffered serious radiation burns.

In a chapter co-written by Beckley and (full disclosure) myself, we touch on the well-known Cash-Landrum case, which involved two middle-aged Texas women in the wrong place at the wrong time. We relied partially on the account given by Jerome Clark in his encyclopedic “The UFO Book.”

“On the evening of December 29, 1980, near Huffman, Texas,” Clark writes, “three occupants of a 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass observed a remarkable sight. Betty Cash, Vickie Landrum, and Vickie’s seven-year-old grandson, Colby, on their way home to Dayton, were driving through the southern tip of the east Texas piney woods when they noticed a large light above the trees some distance ahead.

“The light was briefly lost to view,” Clark continued, “but they saw it again when after rounding a curb they found themselves on a straight stretch of two-lane road on Highway FM 1485. This time it was approaching them, floating above the road at less than treetop height and belching flames from its bottom. Cash and the Landrums were only about 130 feet from the object.”

Landrum told Cash to stop the car, fearing they would get burned if they got too close. However, as a born again Christian, she quickly reinterpreted the object as a sign of the Second Coming of Jesus. She even told Colby that the light was Jesus and would do them no harm.

Meanwhile, it was impossible to simply drive away because the road was narrow and the shoulders soggy. Betty Cash, who was driving, knew that the car would get stuck if she tried to turn around. Since there was no other traffic on the lonesome stretch of road, she stepped out of the car, as did Vickie Landrum. Vickie returned to the car as soon as she heard Colby screaming in fear.

“The object, intensely bright and a dull metallic color,” writes Clark, “was shaped like a huge upright diamond, about the size of the Dayton water tower, with its top and bottom cut off so that they were flat rather than pointed. Small blue lights ringed the center and periodically, over the next few minutes, flames shot out of the bottom, flaring outward, creating the effect of a large cone. Every time the fire dissipated, the UFO floated a few feet downwards toward the road. But when the flames blasted out again, the object rose about the same distance. The witnesses said the heat was strong enough to make the car’s metal body painful to touch.”

The object then moved to a point higher in the sky. As it ascended over the treetops, the witnesses claimed that a group of helicopters approached the object and surrounded it in a tight formation. Cash and Landrum counted 23 helicopters and later identified some of them as tandem-rotor CH-47 Chinooks, routinely used by military forces worldwide.

The UFO and the helicopters were then “lost to view,” according to Clark, and the three resumed their journey. The whole incident had taken 20 minutes.

But what followed for Cash and the Landrums after their return home was unexpected sickness and misery.

Cash began to suffer a headache and nausea that would not go away, and large knots formed on her neck and scalp. Soon they became blisters. Also, her skin was reddening and her eyes swelled. She threw up repeatedly and experienced severe diarrhea. The Landrums were experiencing similar symptoms, though not as intensely.

Cash’s friends soon feared she was near death because she had lapsed into near-unconsciousness. She was taken to the emergency room at Parkway Hospital on January 3, 1981. She could not walk and had lost large patches of skin and clumps of hair. The Landrums improved slightly, though the sores on their skin and the damage to their eyes persisted. Vickie suffered periodic sickness over the next few years and Colby had problems with chronic illness, sores and hair loss.

“A radiologist who reviewed the victims’ medical records for the Mutual UFO Network,” writes Clark, “concluded ‘We have strong evidence that these patients have suffered damage secondary to ionizing radiation. It is also possible that there was an infrared or ultraviolet component as well.’”

Cash and Landrum undertook a long and frustrating campaign to get compensation for their injuries from the government but were unable to prove that either the diamond-shaped craft or the military helicopters were the property of any governmental or military entity.

Cash died at the age of 71 on December 29, 1998, eighteen years to the day after her close encounter.

Landrum died September 12, 2007, seven days before her 84th birthday.

 THE TIP OF THE PROVERBIAL ICEBERG

The foregoing has been just the tip of the iceberg in terms of chronicling the cases that demonstrate the negative aspects of the UFO and alien phenomenon, and Beckley has gathered a selection of writers to cover the subject thoroughly and objectively.

The hostile aliens attack us even with noxious smells and odors, as Tim R. Swartz explains in one chapter. A writer using the pseudonym Hercules Invictus gives an overview of the wicked among the Greek gods on Olympus, while Hispanic writer Scott Corrales covers the evil aliens and their intrusions into the Spanish-speaking regions of the Americas. Allen Greenfield recounts folkloric encounters with fairies that seem suspiciously like meetings with the ubiquitous diminutive gray aliens.

No one wants to abandon the cherished idea that the aliens are potentially here to save us from ourselves. But, as this book’s back cover claims, there is irrefutable proof that UFOs could be perilous to your health, your well-being, and even your life – and in an extreme case scenario could doom all of humanity. Because of the frightening nature of its fully-documented findings, this may well be the most startling book you will ever read on the subject of UFOs. Hundreds of alarming cases are detailed here – and it is evident that there is no place to hide.

UFOLOGY AND THE COLLINS ELITE

By Milton Grover

Authors note: Although the information contained in this article can be applied worldwide, for the sake of brevity I have for the most part concentrated on what has emerged from the USA. Therefore, bearing this in mind I have confined my observations to what is acknowledged by many researchers as being at least within the realms of what is possible, you have to, because one you start to go down this extremely slippery rabbit hole, all sorts of unexpected side avenues open up and some of them are probably best left unexplored.

I am reminded of a saying by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, ‘Battle not with monsters lest ye become a monster and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you’, the emphasis is mine, and believe me the subject of Ufology is indeed a deep, dark abyss and once you start looking, and I do mean really looking, the psychological fallout can be genuinely unsettling and have terrifying spiritual connections.

A word of warning though, keep in mind some of what follows is derived from fundamentalist thinking and theology, which tends to base its opinions on a fairly unique interpretation of scripture. I would like to express my thanks to Tim Green Beckley and Tim Schwartz from Conspiracy Journal and also John J. Ventre the multi-state director of MUFON, for their help and suggestions in preparing this article. As a final comment, please be aware that I wrote this very recently after coming across a new piece in the UFO jigsaw and I have no views or opinions one way or another on what follows. I have written it based on the information to hand and I have supplied sources that anyone who is interested can follow up and make their own judgment on whether it is valid or not.

Ufology and The Collins Elite

ufos

The “Extraterrestrial Hypothesis” (ETH) theorizes that UFOs are spaceships from other planets with a technology so advanced that it can be indistinguishable from magick.

Since its inception in the 1940’s, modern Ufology has been beset by various ideas and opinions about what UFOs are, where they originate and who (or what) they contain. According to the most commonly accepted belief, UFOs are extraterrestrial spacecraft originating in far-off star systems that visit our planet for a whole host of reasons. Some of the reasons are entirely altruistic and benign and some considerably less so, but at the core of this particular subset of opinion called the extra terrestrial hypothesis (ETH), lies the conviction that all UFOs, irrespective of their point of origin, are nuts and bolts machines piloted by beings that seem to be more or less humanoid in appearance. This is fair enough, but seems to largely ignore many other aspects of the phenomenon. For example: these objects (and their assumed occupants) appear and disappear at will, pass through solid walls, can manifest to individuals in a group yet remain invisible to other group members and a whole host of other attributes that seem to owe more to ghosts and other spiritual beings than anything else.

However, those who subscribe to the ETH claim that this is due to vastly superior technology rather than any paranormal attributes: and that said it is arguable that any display of some aspects of an unfamiliar technology (as the late Arthur C Clarke rightly pointed out) might well be viewed as either paranormal or even magick. On the other hand there are a small number of groups who, as we shall see, insist, rightly or wrongly, that UFOs and their occupants are not physical in any accepted sense at all, but are in fact manifestations of Satan and his minions. The purpose of these UFOs is the ultimate perdition (spiritual ruin) of the human race and those who promote this concept claim that their ideas stem from what they believe is the ultimate source of all truth, i.e. the Holy Bible, which they quote to substantiate their claims.

giganti-caucaz

The book of Enoch describes “The Watchers”, a group of angels sent to Earth to watch over humans. 200 of those angels committed transgression by having sex with humans, creating a hybrid race of giants called the Nephilim.

This also ties into the supposed corruption of the human race eons ago by fallen angels (more ET’s perhaps)? as mentioned in Genesis 6:4; Jude 1:6 and then progresses into the future and the endtimes. Once we go down this route we encounter a race of ancient hybrids, i.e. the ‘Nephilim’ who were allegedly the mutant offspring of human women and the fallen angels. It is thought that these are the giants mentioned in the bible. This is the mindset that also readily embraces concepts such as the machinations of the New World Order (NWO) and the Illuminati, as with the UFO phenomenon in general it is open season for any idea one wishes to attach to it.

In addition there is an even less well known schism of belief from a similar source, saying that UFOs, while still spiritual, are created and crewed by angels, so you pretty much pays your money and takes your choice. From this it is obvious that, while UFOs and Ufology may be relatively marginalised belief systems, there is sufficient scope within them for various strands of belief to grow and develop. I say this because based on what we have just seen; some years ago I was in conversation (via a medium) with an entity that claimed to be extraterrestrial and said it came from where, quote, ‘souls were created’.

There is not a great deal one can say to that, except that having worked with this particular medium during many investigations I had faith in her abilities; so despite some reservations far be it for me to pass judgment. Besides, there is always the nagging doubt that this entity, whatever it was, was not necessarily telling the truth and this is something that has previously been commented on by other serious and open-minded UFO researchers. I say this because within the UFO community there is a surprisingly high level of intolerance to any thoughts or opinions that fail to stay within the narrow ETH mindset.

The Intelligence Agenda

pentagon investigates UFOs

Starting in 2008, the Pentagon quietly set up a $22 million program to investigate reports of UFOs.

Although officially denied, ridiculed and rejected by most governments and intelligence agencies, this ridicule conceals a very deep rooted concern that UFOs and what they represent may in fact have more basis in reality than they care to admit. This has been seen in the various governmental attempts to prove or disprove the phenomena one way or another, especially in the USA. In the USA, projects like ‘Grudge’ and ‘Blue Book’, the formation of the Robertson Panel and the Condon Report etc, etc are all examples of this and it has been argued that what emerged from these groups was nothing more than propaganda using disinformation, misinformation, spin and barefaced lies. Even the much vaunted book, the so-called ‘smoking gun’, i.e. The Day After Roswell, is a prime example of this bare-faced subterfuge. Government files on the UFO enigma continue to surface, one of the more recent examples was the release of formerly classified information from the UK intelligence services in the Ministry of Defence (MOD), but nowhere in the files is there any evidence that they are extraterrestrial. Even stonewall cases like the Rendlesham Forest incident of the 1980’s despite the witness evidence being pretty much positive and overwhelming are brushed off using varying specious excuses.

All that these reports were able to say was, officially at least and despite the fact that the intelligence agencies regularly used Ufology as a screen to conceal their own agendas, there was no truth in any of it and the UFO phenomenon lay entirely in the minds of the general public. It was founded on little more than overactive imaginations and mistaken identity compounded with a desire for some mystery and intrigue. It is possible that some of this subterfuge might have stemmed from a real fear that to admit that we really were visited by non-human races originating outside our solar system might create widespread fear, panic and civil disorder. It is also likely to have caused many people to question the authority and moral certainty of the churches, something that would serve to further exacerbate an increasingly unstable situation.

The Collins Elite Emerges

However, despite the artifice and denials there is the nagging suspicion that their investigations revealed that at least some UFOs might be genuine and this knowledge could somehow be harnessed for military advantage. This is probably true, because given the ultra-pragmatic way in which intelligence agencies operate (especially the CIA), obtaining anything they think will be of use to their country militarily becomes imperative, so how and where they obtain this information is secondary to the methods used; i.e. the end invariably justifies the means. Since any information would have to be properly evaluated, monitored and thought through in a dispassionate manner, a steering group was formed comprising representatives of all interested parties.

In the USA, since all branches of the military plus the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) were obviously involved anyway, it was a relatively simple matter to draft in representatives under the stewardship of, initially, the FBI then the omnipresent CIA and eventually perhaps the NSA as well. This semi-official subgroup which was created in July 1952 allegedly became nicknamed by those involved, ‘The Collins Elite’. Although it starting out evaluating the threat of UFOs as one based on actual machines, given the makeup and views held by some influential members of this group, this changed dramatically and the first question to ask is how much truth is in what they said and could the CIA have accepted this and allowed it to develop?

Attitudes Harden

According to a book, Final Events, written by author and researcher Nick Redfern, a British citizen currently residing in the USA, the answer is yes, they could. For many years the CIA was not only out of control, it was beyond control and functioned more or less autonomously as a separate government that was a law entirely unto itself, something greatly helped by its lavish and often unaccountable funding. Even their notional boss, the President of the USA, had no idea what was going on and given some of the shady and frequently murderous operations they instigated and sometimes funded, this was probably just as well; it is a process called ‘plausible deniability’, a term first used by the CIA during the Kennedy administration. Regarding the way in which the CIA operated, it has been stated that when Area 51 was first created it was handed to the CIA to operate rather than the Navy or the Air Force and in 1958 the then President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who had made the mistake of allowing the base to function without Presidential oversight, was flatly denied both access to the base and information regarding what was going on there. In retaliation the President promptly threatened to send in an army group from Colorado to dismantle the place. In response to this tactic he was grudgingly given the information he requested, but he never did wrest control of the base back from the CIA.

ufowomen

It has been suggested that the UFO phenomena could be supernatural and/or demonic instead of nuts and bolts spaceships from other planets.

Redfern goes on to state that the findings of the Collins Elite strongly infer that the ET presence was not just the result of visits by nuts and bolts flying machines and their occupants, instead it was probably demonic/satanic nature instead. In fact it went as far as say categorically that there was never any contact between extraterrestrials and humans, it has always been supernatural and/or demonic. We should remember that this covert unit, although it started out with a fairly specific remit, rapidly became increasingly influenced by some of its more single-minded members who may themselves have been implementing an agenda directed from outside the group.

Strangely enough this opinion chimes with comments made by the late ethno-botanist and psychonaught Dr. Terence McKenna, who once said that, ‘We are part of a symbiotic relationship with something which disguises itself as an extra-terrestrial invasion so as not to alarm us.’ He never did elaborate on what he meant by that, but it probably refers to the entities, sometimes called ‘machine-elves’ frequently seen by people who use substances like dimethyltryptamine (DMT) the active ingredient of the traditional and powerful hallucinogen Ayahuasca. This would certainly fit with the observations made by members of The Collins Elite and this kind of thinking is surprisingly common in some areas of the UFO community who see the phenomenon as more akin to the occult that anything physical.

It is a view also shared by members of the fundamentalist Christian right-wing of American politics and in some cases they have claimed that UFOs were piloted, not by demons, but by angels as an adjunct to the much prophesied ‘end times’. However, the astute observation made by Dr McKenna fits exactly with a statement allegedly made by The Collins Elite to the effect that, “We have in our midst a cold-hearted and sinister intelligence of demonic origins that masquerades as alien.” Although the wording is slightly different, the meaning is identical. Before we examine The Collins Elite in a little more detail, we should consider some of the background and this involves looking at other, less well-known projects undertaken by the CIA and the other US intelligence agencies.

As well as investigating the possibility that the earth was being visited more or less at will by non-human entities, they were also extremely interested in highly controversial occult experiments being carried out by an pioneering rocket scientist and co-founder of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Jack Parsons and Ron Hubbard in the days before Hubbard decided to make money by inventing the cultish quasi-religion of Scientology. Hubbard spent the last years of his life on the run, keeping the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) off his back. The IRS wanted the tax due on the money in the Scientology bank accounts. However Hubbard, who considered his creation a religion, would not pay it. Eventually the Scientologists, after the death of Hubbard and now being run by David Miscavige, managed to effectively blackmail the IRS into granting them religious status allowing them to avoid paying tax.

The Connection with Magick

Ahnenerbe

The Ahnenerbe Symbol.

In a way this unlikely connection between the military and magick is not all that surprising and resonates with claims made a couple of decades earlier about the Nazi High Command during the Second World War and the possibility that they too were involved in magical rituals based on esoteric research into the origins of the Aryan race conducted by covert, quasi-scientific groups like the Ahnenerbe, which was founded in 1935 by SS chief Heinrich Himmler and others. Whether or not any of this information was used as part of the Nazi master-plan for victory in WWII is open to debate, but there is no doubt that Himmler et all did have some really bizarre ideas about how this knowledge might be ‘weaponised’.

This ties into similar claims made in the book, The Spear of Destiny by Trevor Ravenscroft, an extremely controversial publication first released in 1972, that the lance that pierced the side of Christ on the cross in St John’s account of the crucifixion, was eventually appropriated by Adolph Hitler in an attempt to use its supposed immense latent power using some unspecified method, in his plan for world domination. It may be that given the reputation of the spear just having it in his possession might enable his scheme, however according to the legend losing the spear resulted in the death of whoever had it, something that seems to have been fulfilled when Hitler finally shot himself in the head with a pistol.

lam

Under the influence of both mescaline and hashish, Aleister Crowley conducted an ancient ritual and encountered a creature that called itself Lam.

In the case of the aforementioned Parsons and Hubbard, in 1946/47 they attempted to create a magickal dimensional portal to allow a divine feminine archetype, in fact the goddess Babylon, access to our reality. Other opinions hold that it was not any goddess, but some kind of demonic child. They did this using the ‘Babalon Working’, which was a variation on a ritual that had been attempted nearly fifty years previously by the noted late Victorian British occultist and eccentric Aleister Crowley, when he used a ritual called the Alamantra Working. It may be relevant that Crowley manifested an entity he called ‘Lam’ while undertaking this project (he drew a picture of it) and there is no question that Lam looks remarkably like an alien ‘Grey’ and it was after this that these (and other) beings started to be seen on a regular basis when alleged contact with ET’s took place.

Crowley was well aware of what the two men were attempting and warned Parsons about his deep mistrust of Hubbard and his motives; something that proved remarkably prescient when Hubbard absconded shortly after with a large sum of cash taken from the bank account he shared with Parsons, plus Parson’s current mistress in tow. Unsurprisingly, Scientologists fail to find room to mention any of this in their sickly hagiographies of Hubbard. In fact Crowley had a great fondness for Parsons, who he regarded as a kind of standard-bearer of his brand of magick, it would be closer to the truth to say that he thought of Jack Parsons as the son he never had. In a strange example of possible synchronicity, Parsons died at home in 1952 when a mysterious explosion in his garage ended his life. It has been suggested that the explosion was due to his experiments with highly volatile chemicals involved in making rocket fuel, (this was after all what he did for a living) either that or, as has also been implied, he was trying to create a ‘homunculus’ or artificial being and his experiments went badly wrong, either way he died.

Is Any of This Feasible?

Again we should pause to consider whether or not any of this is feasible, because if fractures in the nature of reality can be brought about by the use of words, symbols and rituals, this may find a resonance with the arcane symbols and formulae used by quantum physicists in the present day. Examples of this can be found in the laboratories where such strange, albeit cutting edge experiments are carried out, because it has been found that what the participants in these experiments think about what is being attempted can directly affect the outcome. It’s called the ‘observer effect’ and much to the chagrin of the hard-line rationalists it is proven to occur and there is no obvious answer why, or at least not one that they find acceptable.

This by any measure indicates that the ‘observer effect’ is a form of magick, the very thing that physicists would reject out of hand, but how else to explain it? Actually Aleister Crowley seems to have summed this up pretty well several decades earlier when he defined magick as “The Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will”, in effect the ability to edit reality. Once again it seems surprising that the intelligence agencies should involve themselves in such arcane practices, because one would imagine that as the hard headed realists they have to be they would dismiss this as sheer fantasy, but not so.

thumbnail_aliens-in-time-and-space-maria

Is it possible that factions within military and intelligence agencies were/are involved with occult and magical practices that contacted entities from beyond this reality?

One can easily cite the ‘Stargate Project’ which involved, among other things, remote viewing and other psychically inspired attempts to gain an advantage over a perceived enemy as examples of the lengths they will go to. However, it is at this point we find ourselves slipping into other parallel claims of mind-bending experiments allegedly conducted at places like Montauk and we have to be careful before dismissing this as sheer conjecture and nonsense, if, for no other reason than there was a military base at Montauk and its remains are still to there to this day and, some people say, also the unintentional remnants and residue of the experiments supposedly conducted there. These experiments seem to interlink closely with certain occult and magical practices involving time-travel amongst other claims and contact with entities that did not originate in this reality. So, how does the Collins Elite tie into this?

If we consider that this group was set up to see if any military advantage could be gleaned from contact with extraterrestrials and came to the conclusion that these entities were not ET but demonic, we can also assume that they were prepared to do whatever it took to make this work. Among the projects bordering on the magickal being undertaken was the development of such devices as ‘psychotronic weapons’, which could allow the remote influencing of how individuals operate and think, plus a range of other technologies that at first sight seem impossible. By our standards they are and that includes various spin-offs from work already being conducted on other types of electromagnetic weapons, but once you enter into the dark world of magick then literally anything becomes possible. As an adjunct to this, there was another sinister CIA funded mind control project called MK-OFTEN (an adjunct to the better known and equally notorious MK-ULTRA). For MK-OFTEN, the CIA employed the services of Satanists, witches, psychics and other occultists as part of their efforts in MK-ULTRA at establishing a reliable and effective method of mind control. This being the case then it is entirely feasible that they would plumb any depths in their search for a military advantage.

The Vatican

vaticanandufos

The Catholic church has been pondering over whether there are more technologically and intellectually advanced sentient beings elsewhere in the universe.

As if this was not enough, there are claims by Catholic researchers that the Vatican has, or at least had, plans afoot to prepare its flock for the arrival of an extraterrestrial saviour, which seems to resonate with the idea that Jesus was an ET. Again we have this odd, synchronistic link between aliens and angels and the notion that the human race is the result of extraterrestrial DNA splicing. It seems logical that an organisation as powerful and influential as the Vatican must have some sort of plan in place to deal with the possibility that if there is life on other planets and that life has no concept of a creator God, what happens then? It has been seriously mooted by the Curia that in that case it is the duty of the Church to make them aware of God and bring them salvation: good luck with that. Again, much of this, although it may have elements of fact, is also based on hearsay. It’s rather like the so-called ‘evidence’ for the reality of UFOs and especially secret underground bases that comes from ‘high ranking’, but almost always unnamed service personnel who dare not reveal their identities for fear of deadly reprisals.

This evidence might as well not be quoted for it cannot be checked; in truth it is evidence of nothing except speculation, but for now that will have to do. However it is a fact that Pope John Paul on the 23rd of October, 1996, while speaking to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences plenary session at the Vatican, stated that Darwin’s Theory of Evolution was a reality and in doing so reduced the biblical accounts of how we got here to nothing more than myth. How this will play out in the years to come will remain to be seen, but as a word of caution; according to the prophecies of the Irish St Malachi the Pope coming after Pope Benedict i.e. Pope Francis, will be the last one and what comes after that is anyone’s guess, but according to Malachi it is the ‘end times’…again!

From what we have seen it may be likely that the Collins Elite is real and still exists and their task was to monitor any attempts at making contact with whatever exists on the other side of reality, be it extraterrestrial, ultra-dimensional, supernatural or whatever form it takes. If that is the case then they would have been extremely interested in what the likes of Jack Parsons and Ron Hubbard (and others) were trying to do. As already stated, it would have mattered naught where this information came from or how it was obtained, as long as they could harness and make effective use of it. One of the papers purportedly coming from this group was entitled ‘Deception and UFOs: What we Believe and Why’ emerged in 1998 and in it there is a distillation of their findings since their inception in 1952. What is basically says is that the earth is being prepared for Armageddon and that human beings are little more that containers for souls that can be harvested in the service of Satan. The only way to salvation is, apparently, to embrace Christ as your redeemer and all will be well.

One of the strangest aspects of what came under their oversight was the possibility that a project was underway driven by these non-humans to create hybrids of humans and aliens to serve the antichrist and Satan during the endtimes, the time of Armageddon in fact. Never forget that fundamentalist Christians we encountered earlier fully believe this, along with the ‘rapture’, can and will happen and even the ultra-rational realm of science has its fair share of them. So yes, the Collins Elite probably are real, and seem to be still in existence, for in the murky world of intelligence gathering anything that works, however distasteful can and will be used, although this knowledge is seldom on public display; it is how ‘black projects’ work. Time as always will tell.

LEGACY OF THE SKY PEOPLE: WAS NOAH’S ARK A STRANGE VEHICLE FROM MARS?

By Sean Casteel

legacy of sky people

The cover of the recently updated and expanded edition of “Legacy of the Sky People.”

Timothy Green Beckley just keeps those hits coming! Like a favorite Golden Oldies radio station, the old days are never really gone, and new shades of meaning continue to accrue.

Beckley’s latest blast from the past is a greatly expanded update of Brinsley Le Poer Trench’s “The Sky People,” one of the earliest books to emerge on what is now the familiar concept of Ancient Astronauts. Most people nowadays consider Erich von Daniken and the late Zechariah Stichen to be the headliners for this ancient aliens show, but Trench, an Englishman who was also the 8th Earl of Clancarty and thus a member of the House of Lords in the British Parliament, was there ahead of both those distinguished gentlemen with his groundbreaking “The Sky People” from the early 1960s.

The story of Brinsley Le Poer Trench is close to Beckley’s heart. Beckley began to correspond with Trench in the 1960s when Beckley was just starting out as a UFO journalist and publisher. The two flying saucer enthusiasts exchanged their respective publications (“Flying Saucer Review,” published in the UK, and Beckley’s “Interplanetary News Service Report” in the U.S.) and shared a warm correspondence for many years. In the 1970s, Trench invited Beckley to speak before a special committee on UFOs at the House of Lords, and Beckley made the trip to London without hesitation. Over forty years later, Beckley still speaks fondly of the late Earl of Clancarty, who died in 1995.

It should be noted that Beckley’s “Bizarre Bazaar/Conspiracy Journal” publishing “empire” has not shied away from publishing works of great historical value on the arrival of interstellar beings throughout antiquity. He has previously published works of the great Sir Walter R. Drake (i.e. “Alien Space Gods of Ancient Greece and Rome/Ancient Secrets of Mysterious America“) as well as the controversial George Hunt Williamson (“Other Tongues Other Flesh/Ancient Secrets of the Andes and the Golden Sun Disc“).  But Beckley hasn’t merely repackaged Trench’s book. He has also added new material from some of the best writers in Ufology with their personal studies of ancient astronauts theory. For example, Nick Redfern, one of the top researchers in the paranormal today, contributes a longish chapter to the new book in which he discusses the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark.

Everyone is familiar with the story, taken from the Book of Genesis. But are you aware that the story – a great, world-destroying flood from which God spared only a handful of righteous mortals and two of every kind of beast – is also an integral part of other religious traditions, such as the Sumerian, the Babylonian, and the ancient Hindus? Redfern explains how the story of a human being instructed to build a ship to shelter a remnant of mankind from a looming world cataclysm is one of the most universal of religious myths, spanning the globe with its timeless tale of good triumphing over evil.

But Redfern’s examination of the Ark story doesn’t end there. Legend has it that Noah’s Ark came to rest on Turkey’s Mount Ararat. Redfern tells the intriguing story of how in 1949, a U.S. Air Force flight crew photographed an anomalous structure protruding from the ice and snow of Mount Ararat and started a decades-long effort by the military and intelligence communities to understand what the mysterious object actually is.

mtararatobjectWorking from declassified files obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, Redfern recounts how the anomalous object was thought to be something metallic, not the gopher-wood of Noah’s construction, and therefore possibly a crashed alien ship. The chain of documents uncovered by Redfern makes for fascinating reading.

When 1950s-era alien contactees like George Van Tassel also took an interest in the mystery atop Mount Ararat, they came under the watchful eye of the CIA and FBI. Information on the structure was at one point leaking like a sieve, according to Redfern, and the government was determined to plug those leaks. What was the government so determined to hide? Was the discovery of Noah’s Ark a national security issue? Or was it a case of another crashed UFO? Turkey’s own version of the Roswell Incident?

bradsteiger

Brad Steiger

My own contributions to the new edition of “The Sky People” are a couple of chapters in which I speak to Brad Steiger, one of the most prolific writers on the strange and supernatural in the world, and Giorgio Tsoukalos, the official spokesman for Erich von Daniken in the English-speaking world, and the personality with that wild and crazy styled hair on “Ancient Aliens” broadcast over the History Channel.

Steiger recalls attending an Ancient Astronauts conference in the early 1980s at which the main speakers were Erich von Daniken, Josef Blumrich (author of “The Spaceships of Ezekiel,” written when he worked at NASA) and Steiger himself. Not in attendance was our man of the hour, Brinsley Le Poer Trench.

“He was probably generally neglected,” Steiger said, “because Erich von Daniken was the fair-haired boy at that time and was given a great deal of credit for coming up with the whole ancient astronauts concept. It was easier to do then. We didn’t have the media that we do now. And a book such as ‘The Sky People’ was read by a few individuals, but the great masses of people then were not interested. Then something comes out and gets a lot of attention, like ‘Chariots of the Gods?’ As people said, von Daniken just happened to be standing in front of the cosmic slot machine when it paid off.”

Stieger also praised Trench for his theories concerning the Planet Mars, specifically the idea that instead of Noah being an ancient Israelite, he was a great leader on Mars and the Ark was a giant spaceship intended to carry a surviving remnant to Earth.

“At the time Trench said it,” Stieger continued, “people weren’t prepared. But it’s been interesting to see that in most polls the idea of life existing on other planets or in other solar systems is now generally accepted by young people. Whereas back in the 1950s and 1960s, it was rejected by nearly everyone. More and more, the idea that life could have existed elsewhere in our solar system doesn’t get a door slammed immediately.”

Steiger said he has come to feel that, “We have met the Martians and they are us,” meaning we may have been genetically engineered by a superior race who originated on Mars and brought life to Earth for whatever unknown cosmic reason.

“I think, the more I study,” Steiger said, “that we are definitely hardwired to perceive advanced beings as godlike, and I think we are hardwired just to perceive and understand a concept of God. Now, whether that has been hardwired by our progenitors from outer space, or it is just hardwired in terms of our evolution and our DNA, for how we perceive entities greater than we, is a question we could discuss endlessly. But I think it’s just hardwired into us to perceive that we are part of a greater cosmic entity.”

I also discussed the God angle with Giorgio Tsoukalos, who, along with his mentor Erich von Daniken, draws a definite line in the sand when it comes to calling the ancient astronauts the literal Creator God.

“Let’s say you and I create an intelligent species in the lab,” Tsoukalos said. “That does not make you and me God. The whole ‘God question’ transcends the extraterrestrial presence. The extraterrestrials that Erich von Daniken and I talk about are not ethereal beings. They were flesh and blood, physical people consisting of the same atoms and molecules and particles that every single human being and every single thing has here on Planet Earth.

“That is also why the extraterrestrials look like us,” he continued. “The whole idea that extraterrestrials look like something out of the movie ‘Aliens’ or ‘Independence Day,’ that’s a Hollywood stereotype. But both Erich and I think that there is an all-encompassing force in the universe. But you can’t really put your finger on it. You can’t really touch it. Even the extraterrestrials have the same exact questions about life, death, God and religion and all those different things that we are struggling with today. To suggest that the extraterrestrials have all the mysteries solved – I think it’s not that easy.”

Tim Swartz, another major writer for Global Communications and the editor of the online “Conspiracy Journal,” also contributes a chapter to this updated edition of “The Sky People.” Swartz gives the kind of broad overview of the ancient astronauts theory that will be very helpful for those new to the subject as well as for those more familiar with this strange territory. He begins by talking about paintings found in caves around the world.

“Cave paintings from Tanzania,” Swartz writes, “estimated to be up to 29,000 years old, depict several disc-shaped objects that appear to be hovering over the landscape. Another painting shows four humanoid entities surrounding a woman while another entity looks down from the sky inside some sort of box.

“Inside the French cave of Pech Merle,” Swartz continues, “near Le Cabrerets, are paintings from around 17,000 to 15,000 BCE that show landscapes full of wildlife with a number of saucer-shaped objects. One painting actually shows the figure of a man looking up at one of the overhead saucers. In northern Australia, there are a number of cave paintings, possibly more than 5,000 years old, that show strange beings with large heads and eyes, wearing spacesuit-like garments. The Aborigines call these creatures Wandjina, and according to legend, the Wandjina came down from the stars in the Milky Way during the Dreamtime and created the Earth and all its inhabitants.”

The phenomenon of the cave paintings Swartz describes is the sort of thing that inspired Brinsley Le Poer Trench and the other researchers of the ancient astronauts theory to begin with, although Trench’s ideas also depended a great deal on his groundbreaking interpretation of the Book of Genesis.

Trench was among the first to recognize that Genesis actually contains two different versions of the Creation Story and the Great Flood account. This has puzzled Biblical scholars for many years, who believe that the differing versions were probably inexpertly grafted together from earlier oral and written traditions. This fact is not taught in Sunday school or preached from the pulpits, but it is there for anyone to read.

What was Trench’s take on the two different Creation Stories? For him, it was simple: two different races of man were created by two separate Creator Gods, one called the Elohim (which is actually a plural term) and the other called Jehovah, which Trench says is also a plural term, though not generally thought of as such.

The Elohim created a form of man who is telepathic, intelligent and sensitive. The Jehovah created a more primitive form of man, designed to till the gods’ gardens on the Earth and otherwise be servile and docile. According to Trench, both races have survived into modern times, but it is the superior form of mankind created by the Elohim who will eventually win out. Some of us are rapidly reacquiring the telepathy we were meant to have from our very earliest beginnings and mankind will eventually become a sensitive, caring race living again in a virtual paradise. Meanwhile, the strain of mankind created by the Jehovah will eventually flounder in its paranoia and delusions of grandeur and gradually cease to exist.

Could the ancient aliens still be living among us; working and raising families and going about the same everyday activities we all do?

This all sounds a little like the coming of a Biblically-inspired Super Man, and one wonders if the entire race being telepathic might not be a little uncomfortable at times. Alien abduction researcher David Jacobs also believes in a future telepathic world, but he questions how a person might function without the privacy of his thoughts? Like many issues raised by Trench, this one is not so easily resolved. Trench also has a prescient moment or two when he writes about global warming and the threat posed by radical religious fundamentalism. Writing over 50 years ago, he seems to have his finger on the pulse of our own times. Was he a prophet himself?

The ancient aliens are still with us today, according to Trench. Some of them live among us unseen, working and raising families and going about the same everyday activities we all do. This also has been touched upon by more current UFO researchers, like the late Budd Hopkins, who claimed that alien/human hybrid creatures – who appear utterly human physically – walk among us equipped with telepathic and other “supernatural” capabilities. These same aliens, Trench believed, will prevent us from perishing by our own hand, with nuclear weapons or ecological suicide, which is a welcome departure from the more vocal prophets of doom. For Trench, our survival was guaranteed, not our demise.

So whether you’re Bible-believing or a staunch agnostic, Brinsley Le Poer Trench and the other contributors to this updated version of “The Sky People” will give you new and different perspectives on many truths you may have long taken for granted about God and the evolution of mankind. Be prepared for a fascinating and complex dive into the unknown that will surely be worth more than the cover price.

OTHER DIMENSIONS, PHYSICS, THE BIBLE, AND THE PARTING OF THE RED SEA

Slow Train Coming: The Continuing Religious/UFO Odyssey of Dr. Barry Downing

By Sean Casteel

Science and religion could end up complementing each other. New – more “radical” – trends in physics point to the existence of parallel universes and other dimensions which could assist in explaining many Biblical mysteries and miracles, at least according to one Protestant minister who has spent a half century pondering the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials and their possible connection to the seemingly bizarre and unexplainable tales of the Old and New Testaments.

Reverend Barry Downing, who resides in upstate New York, was among the first to see that it wasn’t a given that the “good book” was in conflict with the lore of the flying saucer and the possibility that our universe might be constructed of a bit more than just physical matter. He posited that heaven could be a real place – if not in our timeline then perhaps in a parallel existence just beyond our reach. Could that other dimension possibly be accessible through the guidance of Godly ultra-terrestrial beings and their vehicles? What we think of as spaceships could, in some cases, be divine.

Rev. Barry H. Downing

*** Reverend Barry Downing has been preaching the gospel of “UFO angels” for nearly 50 years now, since the publication of his 1968 book, “The Bible and Flying Saucers.” Downing has recently released a new book called “Biblical UFO Revelations” that incorporates hard won wisdom and perspectives gleaned in the intervening years as he steadfastly continues to make his case for his particular take on Christianity and the aliens.

*** Downing is not just an ordained minister and a religious expert, he is also well-versed in physics, having earned his bachelor’s degree in the field. So he is uniquely qualified to analyze Biblical miracles like the parting of the Red Sea from the Exodus both scientifically and as a man of faith. Read more about the “environmental impact” that the pillar of cloud and fire exerted for the sake of the fleeing Israelites.

*** How does one approach the extreme levels of fear experienced by witnesses to angels in the Bible? Is the fear a UFO witness experiences an example of that same kind of fear? Are we actually wise to approach the two phenomena in abject terror and trembling? At what point does a heavenly love enter the picture and cast out all fear?

I was on the air this past summer with Timothy Green Beckley and Tim Swartz, the hosts of the KCOR podcast “Exploring the Bizarre,” with their special guest, the Presbyterian minister Dr. Barry Downing. In a commercial break, during which we all chatted but the audience could not hear us, Downing informed us that he had sufficient new material for a physical/print book.

Thinking quickly on his feet, Tim Beckley wasted no time in offering to publish Downing’s more recent writings through Beckley’s company Global Communications/Inner Light. And so the process began for “Biblical UFO Revelations,” a book that is a long overdue reprise from an important pioneer in the ancient aliens school of UFO interpretation.

thumbnail_ Barry Downing Book Cover

Biblical UFO Revelations By Rev. Barry Downing

Downing made his initial entry into the UFO community in 1968 with his groundbreaking tome “The Bible and Flying Saucers.” The book explored the possibility of extraterrestrial influence in the development of the Old and New Testaments, with particular emphasis on the notion that one can equate the “angels” of the Bible with the “aliens” of our modern era. Which, at the time, was fairly new and unfamiliar territory for the relatively young field of UFO research.

Before writing that first book, Downing had already earned a Ph.D. from the University of Edinburg in Scotland. His dissertation, called “Eschatological Implications of the Understanding of Time and Space in the Thought of Isaac Newton,” combined the religious, the philosophical and the scientific into the kind of whole that would serve Downing well in his years spent researching and writing about UFOs.

When Downing returned from Scotland in May of 1966, he set up shop in his in-laws’ basement and wrote his book while he awaited his first church assignment as a newly ordained minister. He finished the writing one week before taking a job at the Northminster Presbyterian Church in Endwell, New York, in February 1967, and the book came out the following year.

“I was hopeful that conservative Christians would be more positive than liberal Christians,” Downing told me by email. “It turned out to be the case that neither liberals nor conservatives liked my book. So in a sense I was treated ‘fairly’ by both sides.”

THE ‘ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT’ OF A UFO

The parting of the Red Sea is particularly interesting to Downing, and he gives it 20 pages of examination in “The Bible and Flying Saucers” and devotes a chapter to it in the new book, “Biblical UFO Revelations.”

parting-the-red-sea

Did an extraterrestrial space ship use its propulsion system to part the waters of the Red Sea?

“My argument is that the Exodus UFO, the pillar of cloud and fire,” he explained, “which appeared cloud-like during the day and glowed in the dark, used its propulsion system to split the waters of the Red Sea and save Israel from the Egyptians. The reason the parting of the Red Sea is so important is that it tells us in detail the environmental impact of the UFO presence. Modern researchers go to landing spots with Geiger counters and all kinds of equipment in order to study the environmental impact of a flying saucer landing. Exodus 14:19-30 is a very detailed environmental impact statement.”

Downing says he differs from the standard biblical interpretation that a “strong wind” was used to part the sea, because a wind strong enough to do that would also have blown Moses and the Israelites into the sky. The biblical text says the ground was dry when the Israelites crossed over, but since the escape was taking place at night, it could not have been dried by the sun. Downing suggests that some kind of microwave effect may have been involved.

“I believe the best explanation for the parting of the Red Sea,” he said, “is that the pillar of cloud and fire was some type of spaceship, and those in charge of the spaceship planned the parting of the sea well in advance, to save Israel from the Egyptians and to keep Israel from going back to Egypt, once the Jews discovered that the whole Exodus process was not a walk in the park.”

THE NEW PHYSICS: WHAT THE YEARS HAVE TAUGHT DOWNING

Downing has kept up with the worlds of UFOlogy and physics. His bachelor’s degree is in physics, which he earned while on scholarship at Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York.

“When I published ‘The Bible and Flying Saucers’ in 1968,” Downing writes in “Biblical UFO Revelations,” “I had one major concern about connecting UFOs to biblical angels. The biblical view of angels was they were eternal beings, they had eternal life. My understanding of the scientific worldview at that time was that we live in a ‘running down universe,’ meaning that at some time in the future the universe will run out of energy and die. If this were true, then no one living in this universe could be eternal.

flying saucers bible angels

Dr. Downing contends that Biblical angels could have been of extraterrestrial origin or perhaps from another realm or dimension.

“I began to explore the possibility,’ he continues, “that there might be more than one universe, that there might be a way to escape from the space-time continuum of our universe into a world that did not decay, did not run down. I thought Einstein’s Theory of Relativity offered us the freedom to explore some possibilities within the framework of the as yet unfinished science of advanced physics. With that in mind, I began to look at the New Testament ideas of the angelic world, looking for ‘some way out’ of our universe, and looked for the possibility that UFOs did not come from our universe, but rather from another dimension.”

These ideas are a large part of chapter five of the first book. Downing’s optimistic search for a dimension that is truly eternal was met by the typical scorn his work receives from mainstream Christianity.

“The Christianity Today review of my book,” Downing writes, “was predictably negative about Chapter Five. ‘Space does not permit a complete account of the scientific distortions contained in the book. In the preface, Downing states that he is not an authority on Einstein or on heaven. This does not deter him, however, from devoting a chapter to the question, “Where Is Heaven?” He admits that his discussion reads very much like science fiction and is not necessarily true, but it may, he says, “help to set our minds free from the somewhat depressing agnosticism we now find ourselves in when we even begin to entertain the idea that we might live eternally – as part of God’s plan.” He then proceeds, with complete abandon, to do violence to both Einstein and heaven with over 20 pages of pure speculation.’”

[The review, which was published in the June 21, 1968, issue of Christianity Today, was written by Albert L. Hedrich and entitled “Flying Saucers in the Bible?”]

Barry Downing ufo and sthree wise men

Was the Star of Bethlehem a possible UFO that led the Wise Men to Jesus’s birth place?

In that same section of “Biblical UFO Revelations,” Downing summarizes the liberal and conservative objections to his work.

“Liberals do not want me to take stories like the parting of the Red Sea literally,” Downing writes, “they want it to be poetry, mythology. They want to keep science out of the Bible. Religion is not about reality. It is about something that we make up in our heads, much like music and poetry. Religion may have a beauty about it, it may represent human psychological longings, but it has nothing to do with the physical world.

“The issue with conservatives is quite different,” he goes on. “It has been around 50 years since the publication of my book and I still can’t understand the conservative attack on my work. The conservative Christian mentality seems to be this: the church is a fort, the fort protects the basic treasure we have, which is the gospel, and the task of Christians is to attack all enemies who are trying to destroy the fort. They might be atheists (or other non-Christian religions, New Age mysticism, etc.) or they might be false prophets, or, as Gary Bates says of me, ‘former believers who have fallen away.’ Within this assumption, everyone has to be tested to see if he or she is a true believer or an enemy.”

Downing says it is obvious that the point of view of people like Hedrich is that Downing is the enemy, having done violence to both Einstein and heaven. Downing’s speculation amounts to bombs being dropped on the Christian fort.

“Does Hedrich know where heaven is?” Downing asks. “If he does, he does not tell us in his review. Apparently he thinks it is sinful even to wonder about it. Since when is being full of wonder a sin? Since when is it a sin to believe that ‘with God all things are possible?’” (Matthew 19:26)

The church is not a fort built to defend the gospel, according to Downing. God himself is our fort. We are not called to live in a fort, we are called to live in the wilderness with God, on a journey where we are moving toward the kingdom of God.

“If you hole up in a fort, you will not arrive at the kingdom of heaven,” Downing cautions. “The incarnation of Christ means this journey through the wilderness is so important to God that God became human in Jesus, and lived, and died, on the journey with us. On this trip, we look for signs of buried treasure.” (Matthew 13:44)

THE UFO PHENOMENON AS ‘BURIED TREASURE’

bible flying saucers

UFOs appear in the sky in many religious frescos – they seem to symbolize it as representative of “the others” in our skies.

For around 50 years now, Downing has been pointing at UFOs and saying, “This may be buried treasure hidden for us to find.”

The UFOs are not buried in dirt, of course.

“They’re buried by the greed and lust for power of the military-industrial complex,” he writes, “which decided years ago that UFO truth needed to be kept from us. Our modern Pharaohs are no different from the Pharaoh who challenged the God of Moses. I suspect that many world leaders did not want us to even think about the possibility that the angels of God are not only watching us, but are, on occasion, shutting down our nuclear missile sites.

“And I suspect that for many conservative Christians, defending fortress America and fortress Gospel are so similar, that seeing UFOs as demons, rather than angels, enemies of both America’s military power, and enemies of the Gospel, was a very natural way to interpret the UFO mystery. This is my best understanding of why I am not only the enemy of liberal Protestants, but also conservative Protestants. By and large, it is Roman Catholics who have not demonized me.”

THE ROLE FEAR PLAYS IN THE UFO DRAMA

When I interviewed Downing by email for an introduction to “Biblical UFO Revelations,” I asked him about how fear often plays a major role in the UFO drama, especially in terms of the alien abduction experience.

“We are inclined to think fear is a bad thing,” he replied, “and in a sense it is. If God in His essence is love, then ‘There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.’ (1 John 4:18) At the same time, we are called, according to Paul, ‘to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.’ (Philippians 2:12) The biblical view is, the closer we come to knowing God’s love, the less we will fear. Nevertheless, inclined as we are to sin, to pride, to jealousy, we need to live our lives in fear and trembling, aware that we are never more than a bad thought away from offending God and hurting the divine love bond.

“Fear is very much a dimension of our modern UFO story,” he continued. “One reason for governments of the world keeping UFO information secret is that release of the information would lead to panic, the stock market would crash, the world economy would be destroyed.”

Downing also offered an interesting analogy.

“If a stranger walks into my house and points a gun at me, fear will be my response, and it is a very appropriate response. I may die if I do not fear the intruder; I may die even if I do fear the intruder. But fear in this situation gives me a survival edge, a better chance of not being killed. I will treat the stranger with the gun with respect. The basic idea of God is that He is the one with the gun. He has the power to take our life, or save it, even to raise us from the dead. So fear of God as a sign of respect is an appropriate response.”

flying saucers bible jesus ufo

Downing even theorizes that Jesus could have been taken off the planet in a “spaceship” following his having risen from the dead.

When the angels appeared to the shepherds in the fields, Downing said, fear was the understandable response of the shepherds. “The angel said to the shepherds, ‘Be not afraid, for behold, I bring you news of great joy.’ (Luke 2:10) Fear of angels when they appear is a frequent response reported in the Bible. An angel of God descended from the sky and rolled back the tomb where Jesus was buried. ‘And for fear of him, the guards trembled and became like dead men.’ (Matthew 28:4)

“Whenever we meet a strange power greater than ourselves, fear is a natural response. It is a frequent response for by those who have a UFO encounter, or have an abduction experience, or have a bedroom visitation from an alien. Fear of aliens is no more proof they are evil than fear of angels proves THEY are evil.”

Downing also commented on the abduction experiences of Betty Andreasson Luca and Whitley Strieber, calling their stories “mini forms of disclosure.”

“They are not disclosure at a political level,” Downing said, “that is, landing on the White House lawn and saying ‘Take me to your leader.’ But modern UFO abductions are a limited form of disclosure, examples of what I call ‘targeted intervention.’ The Second Coming of Christ, according to Christian hope, would be a form of an angelic army invasion. At the same time, the biblical story of the angel at the tomb of Jesus, or the conversion of the Apostle Paul on the road to Damascus, represent forms of ‘targeted intervention.’

“The story of the Jewish Exodus from Egypt seems to be something like a major invasion,” he continued, “but the ‘pillar of cloud and fire’ keeps its distance from both Pharaoh and the Jewish people. And the Jewish story has spiritual and moral power in human culture to this day – proof that targeted intervention can have consequences for human culture for thousands of years.

“The work of the pillar of cloud and fire during the Exodus should make us aware that, even if modern UFOs are working for our good, they represent a power of judgment over us such that ‘fear and trembling’ may be a very wise response to the UFO presence.”

INSIDE THE SAUCERS – A RETROSPECT

By Timothy Green Beckley

orthon and tim

Looking “out of style”, Beckley gazes in wonderment at a painting of Orthon the Venusian space traveler whom George Adamski claims to have met in the California desert.

While its open for debate, I can trace my UFOlogical roots back to 1957 when I sighted two objects revolving overhead in the sky. One was hovering over an abandoned factory building across the street from where I lived in New Jersey, while the other stood still almost directly above the house that my grandparents owned. I didn’t observe any portholes, “little green men” didn’t wave to me, but I fully realized — despite a pronouncement by the authorities in the paper a couple of days later to the effect that we were all hypnotized by the appearance of a couple of weather balloons — that these lights, objects, craft (call them what you may) seemed to be under intelligent control. Indeed, they were not bobbing and weaving in the air current. In fact, they seem to know what they were doing (whatever that was), which I think — at least partly — was to get my attention and to push me into unknown territory.

And boy did they ever!

I went and purchased all the material I could find on the subject (including a copy of Fate magazine), started writing letters to the local newspaper and harassing a couple of reporters who I knew kind of went along with my thinking on the subject, that we were being observed by someone — or something — else.

So its been more than half a century now since I threw my hat into the flying saucer ring ding. As fate had it (there are NO coincidences my dozens of personal synchronicities have proven to me) I became an “authority” on the subject, published several nationally distributed newsstand magazines on UFOs, and today as a publisher of my own micro mini “empire,” can lay claim to having published nearly 300 volumes on the paranormal (to see most of them simply go to Amazon.com and type in Inner Light – Global Communications under books).

Inside the Saucers – Mr. UFOs Teenage Years

To commemorate my more than half a century UFOlogical folly, I decided to reprint the first book we ever published back in 1964. Its a real collectors item, and we have to thank Flying Saucer Digest’s Rick Hilberg for photo copying this rather “rough looking” tome which was printed on a spirit duplicator (how fitting). The material, even by today’s standards is interesting, exciting and probably covers a lot newbies may not be familiar with as its origins are almost prehistoric.

The following is my thinking on UFOs today versus yesteryear. The book has been reformatted by associate Tim Swartz, some new art drawn and revised by Carol Ann Rodriguez, and a handful of photos added to “dress up” the book. We also have to thank Sean Casteel for finding a few typos that might have been overlooked during the glorious Sixties. So here then is a brief preview of the collectors item known as INSIDE THE SAUCERS (with special thanks to all our friends).

                                        BACK A BIT IN TIME – FLYING SAUCER STYLE

A lot of boys my age were probably starting to think about girls and sneaking a peek at their father’s Playboy collection. Well, it took me a few years to get into the sins of the flesh. (As it turned out, about ten years later, I became the adult movie review critic for “Hustler Magazine.”) Instead, at 14 or 15, I was reading magazines like “Fate” and “Flying Saucers From Other Worlds.” And, along the way, I hooked up with a small collective of other would-be teen UFOlogists.

Let me clarify: we weren’t particularly geeks or nerds (such terms hadn’t even been coined yet), but we did have some fairly lofty ideals when it came to the subject of flying saucers and their presumed alien crews. Lured by the magic of NASA’s earliest missions and a full-blown nationalistic battle to beat the Russians into orbiting a satellite, we were more into the cosmos than into what we possibly thought at the time were more mundane earthly matters…like keeping our grades up in school.

By “coincidence,” we all met through a column in Ray Palmer’s digest magazine. “Flying Saucers” was an offbeat, bantam-sized publication that cost a whopping thirty-five cents and which you either had to subscribe to or hunt for in the back rows and racks of some pretty obscure newsstands. Palmer had edited a pulp science fiction magazine out of Chicago called “Amazing Stories,” where he tied in underground civilizations, lost worlds and the sightings of some pretty strange, fan-dangled, whirling disc-shaped objects that were just beginning to be seen in the sky all over the United States following World War II.

It was 1962-63 and we were thirsty for knowledge. There was no Internet. No cell phones. So, if you had an inquisitive mind, you read. And if you were into UFOs, Palmer’s zine was about the only ballgame in town devoted entirely to the subject. And I know I was eager to seek out others who shared my interest and might have information to exchange. And so on my manual typewriter I wrote a letter to Palmer Publications about my interests and he published it alongside similar communiques. Correspondence was exchanged through the mail with others who had gotten my address from the pages of this strange little magazine devoted to a very fringe topic. In fact, we were making friends all over the world, in countries that we couldn’t immediately pinpoint on the map.

I suppose I think of myself as a second generation UFO researcher. Or more accurately as a Fortean mindful of the depth and scope of Charles Fort’s contribution to unexplained phenomena and his dedication of hours spent going through dusty newspaper files and scientific journals gathering dust in libraries in the U.S. and the UK.

Truth is, I wasn’t on the scene when the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena was formed, nor did I ever become a member of APRO, the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization, which was a bit more liberal-minded when it came to UFOs, who was inside, and what their mission in coming to earth might be. NICAP was strictly “nuts-and-bolts,” as we say, and was determined to prove that UFOs were physical craft from outer space. They went after reports by pilots, cops and scientific types, while APRO was keen on collecting reports of humanoid beings seen in association with the craft. They were picking up reports from all over Europe and South America, while NICAP centered its attention on butting heads with the Air Force over what they felt was an attempt to stonewall the topic and to keep the saucers a closely guarded secret from the American public.

At some point – circa 1963/64 – I decided to throw my own saucer-shaped hat into the UFOlogical ring and start my own organization as well as an affiliated publication which we called (no drum roll necessary on this uninspired name) “The Interplanetary News Service Report.”

InterplanetaryNewsService10-1964 (1)

Beckley’s first UFO publication. The Interplanetary News Service Report had a catchy cover by Canadian artist Gene Duplantier of a UFO “ambushing” an American submarine.

The organization and its publication quickly grew from a few dozen members to over 1500, probably making us the third largest organization of its type in the country. Some members knew my age, others didn’t – none seemed to care! I was putting out a pretty impressive 40 page publication with the aid of some very credible – and incredible – associates, until I got an offer from Jim Moseley which I couldn’t refuse, allowing him to take over our rank and file membership roster and combine our subscriptions with his more professionally-produced magazine “Saucer News.” To sweeten the pot, he offered to make me Managing Editor of his magazine and to pay me a weekly salary. Hell, how could I say no? I guess this sort of officially ended my career as a teenage UFOlogist, but not as a “teenage werewolf” as I went on to produce a couple of B-movie horror films under the moniker of Mr. Creepo.

I could blow by you a lengthy list of names of those who started out around the same time as I did in a quest for the truth about the “Space Brothers,” but the majority have disappeared, if indeed they even stuck around long enough to be considered part of the scene.

I do remember fondly several aspiring individuals who have passed on to some heavenly realm or other dimension, but should be acknowledged as to the role they played, both in the development of my career and in UFO matters in general. There would be Al Manak of “Flying Saucer Digest” fame, Gray Barker, my first major book publisher and the editor of “The Saucerian,” and, of course, “Saucer News” publisher Jim Moseley, the court jester of a budding field of research who managed to keep things moving and grooving, even during the periods when the saucers weren’t flying so thick and fast through our atmosphere. (Made a crank phone call when in doubt to stir up the pot and get the likes of contactee George Adamski to espouse another fanciful story, real or imagined.)

But we digress and are getting off the topic of teenage UFOlogy just a bit. In fact, those who want to pursue the beginning of my career and the smiling cherub faces of those who set up camp at around the same time are welcome to hear a recent pod cast of TheParaCast.com, hosted by a graduate of those same teen years. Gene Steinberg, perhaps a year or two older, but not any wiser, was one of the original teens now turned senior – and serious – UFOlogist, like the rest of us. In any regard, we were all pretty wet behind the Martian ears in those days, and you can rest assured that it can be said that we are still floundering about looking for answers to the same questions that perplexed us in the 1960s and Seventies.

Tim and his late friend the highly controversial John Keel, author of Mothman Prophecies and other pop items.

With the help of a section called “Saucer Club News” in Ray Palmer’s “Flying Saucers” magazine in the 1950s and 1960s, enterprising young people got together to form their own UFO clubs, or just looked to meet up with others with the same interests. That’s where such people as your humble host of The Paracast and such notables as Tim Beckley, Jerome Clark, Allen Greenfield and Rick Hilberg got their starts. In a single virtual room, Gene’s old friends will reminisce about their early work in the UFO field. The political and cultural climate, how both may have impacted early research efforts, are also debated. Guest co-host is J. Randall Murphy.

Okay, in addition to yours truly who was busy grinding out the latest news on an old fashioned mimeograph machine (a printing device first patterned by Thomas Edison), there were others putting staples into printed sheets of 8.5×11 paper to create their own zines.

mib lady and tim and grave

Tim and the “MIB Lady,” Claudia Cunningham visit the grave of Charles Fort a great inspiration in their lives.

I always felt I had the best “amateur” publication around, though crude by today’s standards, thanks in large part to Jerry Clark, who typed the master stencils for our issues, thus giving us a nearly perfect newsletter free of the typos and grammatical errors that would creep in when I tried to do the job myself.

Clark quickly went on to bigger and better ventures, eventually penning the monumental “UFO Encyclopedia” (in three huge volumes), becoming editor of Fate magazine, and winding up “at the side” of the late astronomer Dr J. Allen Hynek at the very prestigious Center For UFO Studies in Chicago. (Enthusiasts may do a search for Jerome Clark on my YouTube channel, “Mr. UFO’s Secret Files” to hear a reflective, personal account of his adventures over the ensuing decades.)

I don’t need to go into detail here regarding the others, i.e. Steinberg, Hilberg, Halperin and Greenfield since I have specifically requested they add a bit of color to this publication by outlining their humble roots, how their interests and beliefs have developed, and where we can expect to go from here (at seventy, not very far, I would assume).

And speaking of this publication, I should mention somewhere along the line – this being the first ample opportunity without backtracking and rewriting everything – that the publication you decided not to resist our highly polished pitch for – and paid your hard earned cash to obtain – is an exact duplicate of my first book that came off our mimeograph press circa 1963.

In order to defray the cost of printing our “Interplanetary News Service Report” (far from being covered by the $2.00 subscription fee), we needed to invent a way to keep our asses out of debt and pay the hyperbolic postage and shipping costs (out of hand even in those days before rampant inflation). We hit upon the concept of publishing some sort of book or booklets of around 70 to 100 pages. “Inside The Saucers” was the first project of its type. Today, my company, Inner Light – Global Communications, has around 270 titles posted on Amazon that I hope you will consider adding to your paranormal library.

As stated, we have done virtually no editing here. What you read in 1963 is what you will read here today. Sean Casteel, my editor, has maybe found a few commas out of place and an occasional typo that got past Jerry Clark’s initial eagle eye and the white out process. (Remember white out? It was used to correct stencils if you found an error, but it made such a mess that you might have been better off letting the original error go through just as it was.)

Reading over the retyped manuscript, I must say I am impressed with the tone of this work. We had some original thinking going for ourselves, and I do believe I have to take credit for having come forward with the idea that some of the flying discs being observed might be of Nazi origin (see the crudely sketched facsimile of a German built saucer within these pages).

timothy-green-beckley men in black MIB

Tim Beckley has taken the only photo though to be an authentic picture of a Man In Black.

We also tore into the reputed appearance of the Men In Black (done so before my softcover book “UFO Silencers” hit the bestseller charts) and offered researcher Ken Larson a speculative arm to espouse his theory that there was a sort of synchronicity between UFOs, the Great Pyramid and the Salton Sea (a rather bleak and barren California wetland-like watering hole that time has forgotten – and it’s no wonder why, if you care to Google photos of the Salton Sea as it exists today). There is also an inspiring section by the late George Fawcett, who at one time had the largest private collection of UFO photos, and a detailed report on saucers sightings from 1962. Perhaps the most credible case described herein involved a UFO flap at the Oradell, New Jersey Reservoir. Old timers will recall the excitement caused by UFOs that bored a hole in the ice at the Wanaquee, New Jersey Reservoir, but the incident at Oradell seems more impressive and never got any recognition. Deserves being scrutinized very carefully for its possible relevance and importance as a historical benchmark.

Today Tim co-hosts along with Tim Swartz the popular podcast. Exploring the Bizarre archives can be found on KCORradio.com and on Mr UFOs Secret Files, our YouTube channel.

Anyway, as far as I am concerned, “Inside The Saucers” is a forgotten treasure and we can’t thank Rick Hilberg enough for discovering one of the few remaining copies in his files in Cleveland and making a photocopy from which the original work was retyped most meticulously by Sean Casteel.

DICK GREGORY: THE GOVERNMENT’S COVERING UP

By Timothy Green Beckley – mrufo8@hotmail.com

dICK GREGORY ILLUMINITI NEW WORLD ORDER

Gregory was known as a conspiracy theorist.

A talented satirist has sadly passed away and his passing will certainly be felt.

Dick Gregory was a true crusader – a champion of human rights. Sometimes thought of as the country’s top black humorist, the tall, slim ironist was a vocal fighter, a nonviolent man who was known to back any legitimate cause and see to it that the underdog is heard just as loud and clear as anyone else.

To set the record straight, Gregory loved America, but he did want to see things improve. “This is the only country in the world,” Dick says, “where a man can grow up in a ghetto, go to the worst schools, be forced to ride in the back of a bus, then get $5,000 a week to talk about it.”

shirley maclaine celebrity bookDick Gregory is certain there are UFOs! He’s seen them! And even photographed them. (He used to carry around a picture he took of a formation of UFOs in his wallet!) But he doesn’t like to talk too much about his own experience because he feels there is great potential for manipulation when it comes to UFOs. In fact, he seems to back the idea put forward by some conspiracy theorists (including the late former Naval Intelligence Officer, William Cooper) that a “Secret Government” exists that is really in control of what we are allowed to think and believe regarding oh so many matters.

“Whether they know it or not, most of our elected officials are just pawns,” Gregory insisted. “Big money is really in control and is trying to foster the idea of a one-world government. And I’m not talking about the small-change people like Rockefeller. I’m talking about the big boys, those like the Rothschilds . . . those that run the international banking corporations.”

--dick-gregory-life-lesson-quotesAsked if he thinks this “Secret Government” actually meets and plots what is going to happen on a global basis, Gregory answered in the affirmative. “Sure they do! They plot 60 to 70 years in advance . . . they try to raise families to take over the dynasties, but if their youngsters turn out wrong, they try to get them out of the way.”

Gregory said he found it very strange that, within the last few years, information is starting to be leaked to the public regarding UFOs.

dick-gregory-they-fear-those-with-knowledge-and-control-those-without-it“I mean, there are a lot of folks that once worked in the government that had gone on record as saying these objects never existed, and now they turn around and admit there is something to it after all. I really don’t want to be a part of this [manipulation factor], but I do think it is legitimate. There is a lot of information that is going to come out soon that will convince the public there are flying saucers, but it’s just part of this new conspiracy to formulate a one-world government through creating dummy UFOs.” Some might think he was watching way to much of Alex Jones’s info.wars!

As far as beings coming from other planets to assist our world, Gregory says he wishes it were true, but remains skeptical. “I don’t doubt that they might be ours, or they might be the real thing. I would say it’s a sad day if somebody from outer space is fooling around with our planet. They’ve really got to be out of it. If they only would say something – help clean up the pollution or something.”

Men of great wisdom were known to clown around.

Dick says that he does know of a man in the Baltimore area who has invented a spacecraft that works on some advanced principle of physics. “It’s supposed to run on nothing but air. I don’t believe the government will ever allow him to fly this device. It would put the large gasoline companies out of business, and this they won’t allow.” Note: He might have been thinking of the late Otis T. Carr (see “Men Of Mystery” book).

men of mystery coverPressed further on the matter of why he does not like to speak on the topic of UFOs, Gregory maintains that celebrities are often used as part of a “controlling factor.”

“I think those in ‘charge’ of things will go around and get celebrities – those in the public eye – to support the contention that there are actually flying saucers coming here. People will listen to personalities. Even the FBI printed an article in one of their newsletters on what law enforcement agents should do if a UFO is sighted in the community. A former astronomer who was with the Air Force in the early days of their UFO investigation ended up heading his own ‘private’ agency after years of denying their existence. So, yes, I had a sighting, and, yes, I believe in UFOs, but they would like to use me to their advantage and I don’t want to let them!”
