The Theories and the Theorists
Here we present the theorists and the theories most often showing up in Internet searches and other lists. It cannot be stressed enough that these are personal opinions and it is up to the reader to do the research on all theories:
Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, SETI
We place this project first for two reasons. First, it is the only UFO theory that has the approval of the general public and second, it is the most benign project in the field. Approaching the existence of extraterrestrials by pointing listening devices into space with the grand goal of finding messages from the stars, it is the biggest bait and switch scam ever. Politically correct and as controversial as Disneyland, it totally avoids any recognition that millions of people on the planet have testified that the truth is not “out there”, but “right here”. Passive enough for kindergarten and satiating all the skeptics and denials, it is the most effective method of dumbing down public awareness of the UFO phenomena.
Starting in the forties with Roswell and recommended by the Brookings Institute in the sixties, this is the official government line backed up with all the smoke and mirrors of a cheap Vaudeville sideshow. Not much has changed since Roswell.
This theory claims that the government has captured alien vehicles and used the technology to make their own UFOs. Tied in with claims that everything from Teflon to microchips are nothing more than the same captured technology being released slowly to the public, it reads like a conspiratorial science fiction novel. Perhaps that accounts for its popularity among conspiracy buffs. There is evidence that the government has retrieved vehicles, but it is highly unlikely that these account for all UFO sightings.
The government and the aliens are in cahoots, either for the benefit of or to the detriment of mankind. This one gets its share of devotees. It is hard to understand how an advanced race with superior intelligence would enter into an alliance with military officers or politicians with less than honorable agendas, but this reality seems to be ignored. If true, this scenario is perhaps the most threatening of all the theories and there are many factors that make it unlikely. The constant scrambling of military craft to intercept them would certainly indicate no contact, as well as the many reports of UFOs involved in thwarting aggressive military actions. The consistent passive nature of these visitors throughout history would also indicate a peaceful nature, at least for the meantime. And, considering the trigger-happy and power hungry nature of the likely human negotiators, an intelligent, peaceful being would soon realize the interest of mankind was not the goal.
Zachariah Sitchin is the most recognized UFO theorist claiming that his discoveries virtually nullify every other. He claims to be an expert in the translation of ancient Sumerian text through self-education, but his claims have found no credibility with his more learned peers. Unsubstantiated claims that the Bible and most other ancient writings are just copies of the true Sumerian text, that there is a rogue planet in regular orbit in our system, and that the aliens are just after our gold place his theories somewhere between outrageous and science fiction. His inability or unwillingness to present the sources from which he derives this ancient knowledge immediately raises red flags. In defense, he often points to the many spin-offs of his work as proof of his credibility, which is no proof at all. Convincing others of your beliefs, no matter how successful, is not proof that your sources are valid, especially if none of your believers have ever seen them. A word of warning to those researching Sitchin’s work; do in-depth research outside of his own work and those of his clones and, most importantly, look for the proof within his work. There is strong evidence that it is fictional rather than factual.
The International Raelian Movement
A classic Co-participant situation; the leader claims to be the chosen ambassador of an alien race trying to make contact with humanity. Only problem; they won’t come until he builds them an embassy. And, of course, intergalactic embassies require astronomical budgets which the aliens won’t front. Tens of thousands have plopped down millions, but still no embassy and the chosen location, Jerusalem, of course, is out of the question, so they are shopping around for a new location. Meanwhile, the money keeps pouring in. Obviously bored with just an upcoming alien visitation, they have branched out into human cloning, which they claim is the alien way. A study into the claims, evidence and, most importantly, the finances of this group will give you sufficient reason for suspicion.
Let’s start with a brief thumbnail which includes Icke as being a pro-Hitler, anti-Semite who endorses The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the Tsarist anti-Semitic forgery that informed Hitler’s notion of a global Jewish conspiracy. This can easily be backed up in one sentence, his own: “I strongly believe that a small Jewish clique which has contempt for the mass of Jewish people worked with non-Jews to create the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the Second World War….They then dominated the Versailles Peace Conference and created the circumstances which made the Second World War inevitable. They financed Hitler to power in 1933 and made the funds available for his rearmament.” He also denounced the Nuremberg Trials as “a farce” and “a calculated exercise in revenge and manipulation”. He is a supporter of the U.S. militia movement, opposes gun control as a plot by this Elite, (the Illuminati, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission), has repeatedly posted anti-abortion literature and articles on his web site and he even accuses the U.S. government of carrying out the Oklahoma City bombing and murdering 168 people.
Oh, did we mention that the Illuminati are plotting to take over the world, but are actually a race of extraterrestrial reptiles in human form? These child-sacrificing, blood-drinking, Satan-worshipping lizards from outer space are a threat to democracy and capable of changing their shapes. Their ranks include George Bush, Bill and Hilary Clinton, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, Bob Hope, and Kris Kristofferson. For more insight into this there is more:
David Icke And The Politics Of Madness – Where The New Age Meets The Third Reich
George Adamski, a self-made man who had an interest in astronomy and oriental philosophies, was the most famous UFO contactee of the twentieth century. This self-made man, who had an interest in astronomy and oriental philosophies, claimed that he met a being from Venus who said his race was concerned about the radiation from atomic bombs harming other worlds. The alien also informed Adamski that races were visiting Earth from other planets in the solar system and beyond. Meetings with other humanoids ensued. These humanoids took him on flights into space and around the dark side of the moon. However, his description of wooded valleys on the dark side of the moon was not exactly accurate. His experiences are chronicled in several books beginning with ‘Flying Saucers Have Landed’.
We have an entire data base on this one.
Prophet Yahweh – A Shocking Expose’
No doubt, the theory that UFOs are the evidence of alien visitors from other planets is at the center of at least 90% of all UFO theories. Some claim specific planets, solar systems, and other galaxies and the reasons for being here are as varied as the aliens themselves.
Satan and the Fallen Angels
This theory is the church’s theory of last resort to account for the UFO phenomenon. It takes various forms, depending on the source, but is always a satanic conspiracy. The “Holograph” theory claims that there are no UFOs, just holographic images projected into the minds of humans calculated to lure them away from the collection plate. The other more prominent theory is another “child-sacrificing, blood-drinking, Satan-worshipping aliens from outer space that are capable of changing their shapes” concept. But, for whatever reason, they are only here to corrupt the minds of weak believers and drain members, (precious financial resources), from the church. This has also been labeled the “Great Deception”
This theory cites ancient text and structural and cultural anomalies to prove that UFOs are the same flying vehicles that appear in this ancient evidence and that they are either aliens from another planet or the creators of this one, AKA, gods.
This is the, “I am the chosen representative of ______ , from the ______ of ______ , and have been told to give you this message ______ , or this warning ______ , or this ultimatum ______ , and we need this amount, $______ , to complete the alien agenda.“
This theory claims that the UFOs don’t come from, “out there”, but “down there”, right under our feet and claims the Earth is actually hollow, which is actually the source of UFO activity.
Others include: The Aetherius Society, The Urantia Brotherhood, The Unarius Academy of Science, Dianetics, founded by L. Ron Hubbard, The Deist Research Institute, The Church Universal And Triumphant and the Great White Brotherhood, headed by Elizabeth Claire Prophet, The Theosophical Society, founded by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, The Unification Church, headed by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, The Brotherhood of the Sun, and The Planetary Activation Organization.
This is by no means a complete list and, again, this is personal opinion and should be researched carefully.
The world is not a prison-house but a kind of spiritual kindergarten where millions
of bewildered infants are trying to spell God with the wrong blocks.
