"The copy of
the Genesis Apocryphon discovered at Qumran dates back to the second century B.C....
When discovered in 1947, it had been much mutilated from the ravages
of time and humidity....
When scholars finally made public its
content, the document confirmed that celestial beings from the skies
had landed on planet Earth. More than that, it told how these beings
had mated with Earth-women and had begat giants" (I.D.E. Thomas,
Even a casual perusal of the information we have
surveyed over the various parts of this series should be enough to
convince most people that something credible and possibly of religious
and historical value has occurred since the dawn of time. Many,
including a number of secular researchers, believe this
activity--often referred to in this series as UFO Phenomenon--is, in
many cases, identical to Biblical demonology. Millions of people also
see the UFOs of modern times combined with alien abduction activity
and emerging sciences such as cloning and transgenics as forecasting a
coming hybrid (ET?) world leader, which some Christians fear could be
the False Christ.
Others disagree with this assessment and believe the
UFO manifestations are, by and large, equivalent to religious
mythology that possibly points to a return of "creator beings" who
visited earth in the remote past, improved hominid DNA, and
accelerated human evolution.
George King says information was "telepathically
relayed" to him from a super intelligence concerning this coming
global leader. In his book The Day the Gods Came, he writes,
"There will shortly come Another among you. He
will stand tall among men with a shining countenance. This One will
be attired in a single garment of the type now known to you.... His
magic will be greater than any upon Earth--greater than the combined
materialistic might of all the armies. And they who heed not his
words shall be removed from the Earth.... there will be no mystery
about the birth of the next world Avatar as there was about the
birth of Krishna, Buddha, Jesus and others.
This majestic Being will
come among men dressed in the one piece suit usually worn by the
Intelligences from other Planets.... He will have great powers
which, by Karmic Law, He will be allowed to use in order to
demonstrate to all men beyond all doubt, the Authority empowering
Him to carry out His great Mission on Earth.... The power of this
Being will be greater than mankind has ever seen before.... as to be
almost terrible, for... 'They who heed not His words, shall be
removed from the Earth.'"
King's beliefs--that a coming world Avatar is
scheduled to appear--is echoed by millions of people around the world
who likewise look for a coming alien savior.
Whitley Strieber foresaw the credible appearance of
ET as the dawn of a new religion:
"It is a social issue of the utmost importance,
because it has all the potential of a truly powerful idea to enter
unconscious mythology and there to generate beliefs so broad in
their scope and deep in their impact that they emerge with religious
implications for the surrounding culture. The only thing now needed
to make the UFO myth a new religion of remarkable scope and force is
a single undeniable sighting."
Official Disclosure could pave the way for a new
religion according to Jacques Vallee..
think the stage is set for the appearance of new faiths, centered on
the UFO belief. To a greater degree than all the phenomena modern
science is confronting, the UFO can inspire awe, the sense of the
smallness of man, and an idea of the possibility of contact with the
The religions we have briefly surveyed began with the
miraculous experiences of one person, but today there are thousands
for whom belief in other-worldly contact is based on intimate
conviction, drawn from what they regard as personal contact with UFOs and their occupants."
Yet Vallee senses malevolence in this "salvation
from above." In his book
Messengers of Deception he says,
"I believe there is a machinery of mass
manipulation behind the UFO phenomenon. It aims at social and
political goals by diverting attention from some human problems and
by providing a potential release for tensions caused by others. The
contacteÚs are a part of that machinery. They are helping to create
a new form of belief: an expectation of actual contact among large
parts of the public. In turn this expectation makes millions of
people hope for the imminent realization of that age-old dream:
salvation from above, surrender to the greater power of some wise
navigators of the cosmos."
The effect of ET disclosure on Christians has been
seen as an issue for more than 40 years among those in government with
access to UFO information. The issue raised by the sudden appearance
of unknown flying craft and occupants of unknown superior intellect
could shake the foundations of religious paradigms and irreversibly
alter the Biblical worldview.
Richard Boylan says of this:
"One of the predictions is that there will be a
very large rift in human society as a result of ET contact becoming
The Aviary [a super-secret group of government and
military officials according to Boylan] are quite concerned that
fundamentalist Christians will experience spiritual, if not
ontological, shock at the revelation of ET visitation.... the
theological and religious social implications may be the most
serious ones resulting from open extraterrestrial contact...."
