Prepare ye the way—the aliens are coming! Part two
Are we on the verge of a humanity-shaping announcement?
Published: 25 February 2021 (GMT+10)
What is commonly called ‘the UFO phenomenon’ is nothing new. Even the relatively uninterested would be aware that millions have claimed to have seen UFOs and even abductions by alleged aliens. Some of these include high profile people such as former US presidents and government officials in other countries. Towards the end of the last century, claims of UFO sightings by air force pilots, military personnel and alleged alien abductions of individuals, were hyped up in the media due to the sensationalist nature of them. Then after a while, such claims became rather passé or ‘old hat’, even though sightings and abduction claims continued unabated. This led to many informed UFOlogists, military personnel and government officials becoming frustrated at what they perceived as an ignoring of the facts and, even worse, deliberate coverups.
For example, in our documentary Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a deception (hereafter ‘AI doco.) we aired footage from a landmark conference held at the National Press Club in Washington DC on September 27, 2010. It featured numerous retired US Air Force officers who gave testimony after testimony about their experiences with UFOs while on active duty. This included seeing objects fly at speeds beyond the capabilities of any manmade aircraft, performing stops, abrupt turns without slowing down, and flying over nuclear missile silos and affecting the “operational readiness” of our front-line defence systems. They believed that this was of national importance, hence this press conference, and their conclusions were unanimous. No manmade technology by any government on Earth could do what these UFOs were doing. Ergo, it must be an advanced alien technology from another planet or, note, “another dimension” beyond our own.
Due to the UFO craze that swept the world from the 1950s onward, the US government commissioned three official investigations to determine what was behind UFO sightings. These were Projects Sign, Grudge, and Bluebook. Later, a semi-independent report by a US university in collaboration with the US Air Force reviewed thousands of files from these previous projects. It was known as the Condon Report, and its principal investigator, Edward U. Condon concluded in 1969 that:
“nothing has come from the study of UFOs in the past 21 years that has added to scientific knowledge [and] further extensive study of UFOs probably cannot be justified.”1
The report was harshly criticized at the time (1969) by NICAP (National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena) for it being selective about data and minimizing the testimonies of experts in the military.2 They noted that Condon had stated:
“…from the beginning the possibility that some UFOs might be manned vehicles from outer space was considered, but naturally no publicity was given to this idea because of the total lack of evidence.”3
However, Bluebook ran for over 20 years, which would suggest there was plenty of data to research. This project also became the subject of a multipart docudrama on the History Channel in 2019.
To the layperson, many of these physics-defying feats by UFOs sound speculative, even unbelievable, but these are well-known in the UFO research community. So, one can imagine then, the genuine frustration of those ‘in the know’ who feel that this information should be more widely known. This was also the case with the head of Project Bluebook, Dr J. Allen Hynek, a professor of astronomy who worked on Sign and later headed Bluebook. In my book Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the evolution connection (hereafter ‘AI book’), I reported that:
“J. Allen Hynek’s book The Hynek Report of UFOs argues that, during his years as a researcher on Project Blue Book, the U.S. government intentionally deceived and lied to the American public about the nature of UFOs.”4
During his time with Bluebook Hynek was often pressured to explain away many non-reconcilable sightings as something else. He was the one who developed the term ‘swamp gas’ for some sightings. As a result, he started his own UFO investigative organization known as CUFOS (The Center for UFO studies).
Why haven’t governments been more candid?
All the above suggests that governments have not been candid about their investigations into UFOs. But it is not because they are covering up any secrets about the origins of any ET visitors. Governments keep secrets all the time and sometimes for our own protection, as in military secrets. It’s not always because they have some nefarious agenda with regard to its citizens as many conspiracy theorists like to believe. In the case of UFOs, it is most likely because:
- They did not really understand what they were dealing with. After all, it was not as if they had ever captured a genuine extraterrestrial space vehicle or alien bodies to conduct empirical research upon. (See The Roswell Incident was not really an alien spaceship). Although some UFOs have been seen on radar, can leave physical traces, and have affected our environment in some ways, in most cases the research is primarily conducted upon testimonies of what we call ‘experiencers’. Thus, it is not firsthand scientific research. And it is a scientific fact that nearly all of these cases can be shown to be of a naturalistic origin, such as lightning, flocks of birds, clouds, or mistaken aerial craft, etc. But there are always a few that defy any such naturalistic interpretation. We believe most of these, and many of the alleged abduction cases of individuals to are likely to be spiritual in nature, in part because they can appear and disappear from our physical realm. And because governments tend not to accept or even officially recognize the spiritual realm, simply, in the past they’ve had no explanation for what they were investigating.
- Governments need to reassure their citizens that they are in control. It is unlikely that there would ever be any government announcement that basically said, “Yes, there were unidentified flying objects that deactivated some of our nuclear weapons. We do not know what they were, but there is nothing to worry about!” Well, some governments maybe. Notably, the Mexican government has often released footage and radar of UFOs candidly saying, ‘We don’t know what they are’. We showed some in the AI doco.
Particularly during the post-Word War II era and with the advent of the Cold War, the possibility of global conflict and escalation was never far away. Governments and citizens tended to be a little more ‘paranoid’ about such things. Keeping citizens reassured was paramount. The Brookings Report in 1961 noted:
“While the discovery of intelligent life in other parts of the universe is not likely in the immediate future, it could nevertheless, happen at any time. Discovery of intelligent beings on other planets could lead to an all-out effort by Earth to contact them, or it could send sweeping changes or even the downfall of civilization…societies sure of their place have disintegrated when confronted by a superior society.”5 (Emphasis mine).
This is the last thing any government needs. In short, most governments, and notably the US government, for many years have steadfastly denied that UFO sightings have anything to do with extraterrestrial beings.
What, if anything, has changed?
A key article I wrote in 2011 called Prepare ye the way—the aliens are coming! Popular fantasy becomes cultural ‘fact’ cited numerous examples of how various government authorities (both federally and locally) seemed to be taking actions to prepare us for an imminent contact with extraterrestrials. I wondered why this shift was happening but felt much of it had to do with the growing weight of evidence of strange phenomena which in an age of social media sharing has only accelerated. The groundswell of public opinion and pressure has led to movements such as The Disclosure Project. This is a campaign that, through public pressure and petitions, is trying to get governments to ‘disclose’ their true findings about UFO sightings and alleged alien technology that they are ‘covering up’. It was founded by Dr Steven Greer, a former medical doctor who now makes movies about UFOs and government coverups. And as a teacher of transcendental meditation, he ‘helps’ people get into personal contact with alien entities (or so he says). I believe Greer plays fast and loose with the truth. For example, see our review of his movie Sirius where he misled viewers into thinking that DNA testing of a six-inch mummified body found in a Chilean desert proved that it was an alien. In reality, the DNA evidence showed that it was human and had genetic markers consistent with indigenous women from the region.6 However, events over the last couple of years have played into his hands and given him more credibility than he deserves.
The drip feeding starts.
In 2017 we revealed that the Obama administration had been spending millions of dollars investigating UFOs. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, one of the promulgators of this program defended the spending at the time saying on Twitter:
This announcement came with the unprecedented release of footage of a US Navy pilot chasing a UFO.
A Navy F-18 pilot chases an unidentified flying object. There is audio with this clip.
So, instead of years of denials and investigations that said there was nothing to solve, this was an about turn in policy. In the ensuing years more footage has been released on a regular basis. And now Reid has lifted the lid on the whole program saying that “most” UFO evidence has not seen the light of day. Being interviewed for the 2020 UFO documentary Phenomenon, he adds:
““Why the federal government all these years has covered up, put brake pads on everything, stopped it, I think it’s very, very bad for our country.”7
In the one-minute video immediately below he also confirms that UFOs affected the operational readiness of the US’s nuclear arsenal to such an extent that they could not have been launched if needed.
Along with this change of direction from the US government comes a change in the way these phenomena are described. No longer are they to be called UFOs, but now UAPs, that is, Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. Presumably, the UFO moniker is associated with a poor history of flaky claims. UAPs indicate a move to take the phenomenon more seriously.
We should keep in mind that government’s approaches to science and their associated research groups, such as universities, are driven by naturalism. This is never more evident than in the creation versus evolution debate, where the idea of a supernatural creator is rejected and ridiculed a priori. The only exception where any ‘spiritual’ explanation might be considered is when it forms part of a multiverse or multidimensional hypotheses. But note that these ideas are still part of a naturalistic, evolutionary big bang model. Worldviews play the single biggest role in interpreting UFO phenomena. Explaining ‘unexplainable’ UFOs as advanced alien technology is really the only interpretation available to them because of their naturalistic worldviews—even if the phenomena have all the characteristics of being spiritual.
The Trump Presidency COVID-19 relief bill and UFO disclosures
It would be easy to dismiss this as one Senator’s obsession spilling over into this Administration’s policies. But the government’s study on this subject has been going on for over 80 years. And in April 2020 the Pentagon released three more videos of its air combat units interacting with UAPs, even including links so that that viewers could download them. Reid chimes in again:
I’ve had a sense for some time that something has been brewing, and had been intending to write an article like this. But I am glad I waited. Towards of the end of his Presidency in December 2020, Donald Trump signed a $2.3 trillion COVID-19 relief and government funding bill. But this health-related legislation contained many other things, including a requirement for all Federal agencies to disclose their findings about UFOs and whether they pose a threat to US security. This must be done within 180 days/6 months of the Bill and is to be forwarded to The Senate Intelligence Committee, which is chaired by Republican Senator Marco Rubio.
The 180-day countdown to disclosure has begun. But what is really going on?
So, after 80 years the US government has finally confirmed what we all knew. We featured lots of commonly available footage of UFOs in our AI doco. But why is the US government now being more candid?
Commenting on the now famous ‘Tic-Tac’ UFO video near a US navy ship, former CIA Director said what most people, including many Christians, already believe. He said that it was:
“‘presumptuous and arrogant’ for people and governments to believe that the organisms found on Earth were the only forms of life in the universe.”8
It is possible that we are about to face an unprecedented time in human history, where, on an official basis, these events could be used to redefine the traditional view of humanity’s place in the universe. We have previously written on how UFOlogy is becoming the world’s fastest-growing ‘scientific’ religion. This article included the results of a poll which claimed:
- 80% believe that the government is hiding the existence of extraterrestrial life forms
- 64% believe aliens have contacted humans
- 50% believe that aliens have abducted humans
- 75% believe that a UFO crashed near Roswell
Clearly such beliefs are now mainstream. Now that the ‘cat is out of the bag’, and that government authorities are faced with phenomena they seemingly cannot explain, it seems inevitable that we are potentially going to see an announcement that UFOs likely represent some form of extraterrestrial technology. In short, ‘We are being visited by aliens.’ Such a government-sanctioned view could be used to undermine Christianity and the Bible on a massive scale by creating huge doubt. It is already a view of some scientists that aliens created life on Earth. Regardless of any government’s take on this, CMI is a Bible-first ministry and it is our steadfast view that God did not create life on other planets. This has even made us relatively unpopular among some Christian friends who have unwittingly been led by pop culture views.
Beliefs among secular UFO researchers have also been changing in recent years. No longer do most secular UFO researchers believe in real physical craft visiting us from a galaxy far, far away (The Extraterrestrial Hypothesis). Instead, due to the nature of the evidence collected from over 80 years, they take more of an Interdimensional (hypothesis) view. See this article by a MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) National Director called UFO beliefs are changing. In our AI doco, we also showed an interview with Professor John Mack, psychologist and former Head of Harvard Medical School. He is also a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who, based upon his firsthand research, wrote one of the most popular books about alien abductions. In his interview he claimed that we were being visited by ‘spirit beings coming to us from another realm or dimension.’
This is no small thing. It is good that they are actually moving towards the directions we’ve held. But, we also need to be prepared in advance with answers. New spiritual views about aliens are already being used to displace the Bible’s traditional view of the spirit realm. I.e., the ‘primitive Bible writers mistook alien visitations as angels and even Christ Himself.’
End times applications?
It is normal that upon reading this that many of us will automatically and somewhat naturally gravitate to possible end times applications. Are these a precursor or not? Perhaps they are, but we can’t know for sure. But former U.S. President Ronald Reagan understood that the world would suddenly become a small place if an alien attack were real. During an address to the United Nations General Assembly, he said:
“In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”9
One can only imagine what a globally unifying event any ‘alien announcement’ would be. In the over the 30-plus years I have been researching this, I have heard every eschatological angle. But in the here and now there is no way we can determine whether such interpretations are correct because they relate to potential future events. And would focusing on events that may or may not happen win people to the Lord? As such, we recommend not being diverted from evangelism by our views on eschatology, but to instead stay focused on the events of here and now. We are going to face challenges to defend Christianity and our beliefs as we see an ever-increasing acceptance of UFOs/UAPs cited as evidence of alien interaction with humans.
However, UFOs beliefs are changing due to the mounting evidence for their spiritual nature of the unexplained phenomena. The evidence is actually on our side. Both the secular and Christian researchers agree about the spiritual nature of UFO’s, although we might disagree about its origin. But this more recent evidence that is readily available to all researchers is being widely ignored. Today, believers in alien visitations actually have a problem with the views of their own secular experts—not we Christians as we understand the evidence within our worldview. For example, UFOlogist Nick Redfern (author of over 40 books), said:
“But, I can say for sure that, every year, my views that we are dealing with something much stranger than ET grow stronger. The main reason: the phenomenon works too hard to come across as alien…‘We are part of a symbiotic relationship with something which disguises itself as an extra-terrestrial invasion so as not to alarm us’ (quoting McKenna).”10
Although a secular researcher, Redfern indicates in our AI doco that experiences with these alleged alien entities are, indeed, demonic.
Testimony upon testimony indicate an obsession with the nature and personhood of Jesus Christ by our alleged alien visitors. Why are alleged alien abductions halted in the name of Christ? Why are supposedly, highly-evolved and technologically advanced beings frightened of a supposedly dead, ‘mythical’ figure? As the wise King Solomon once said:
“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9, NIV).
We have powerful evidence readily available to show the real agenda behind the UFO phenomenon. If you have not heard this information before, we encourage you to be prepared. Don’t be marginalized, but let’s see people set free by proclaiming truth (John 8:32). After a screening, Debra S. wrote to say:
“God Bless you! We saw ‘Alien Intrusion’ last week and it was fantastic. I read the book just prior to seeing the movie and am in total agreement with the assessment that aliens are indeed demons. The presentation was spot-on. Thank you for your ministry! After the movie, the person that had been sitting in front of us introduced herself and said that she had seen ‘aliens’ as a child and that the movie not only helped her but was exactly true to life. Thank you for the fantastic scientific and spiritual view that was presented. And once again, God Bless you abundantly!!!”
