people can not be lying. Something is here--probing people,

manipulating their bodies--treating them, in a sense, like so many
Is it all simply a gigantic cosmic joke, or is there a
more sinister plot at hand?
Are we seeing the formation of a new
and highly destructive cult, one whose view posits the elimination
(the New Agers call it 'spiritual cleansing') of people who are
'unfit' to exist in the coming New World?
Are there really demonic
entities hovering about, searching for likely candidates whose
brains and minds they can invade, filling them full of fairy tales
and lies--fattening them for the kill?
The answer is not easily
forthcoming. But whichever scenario you may choose, the ominous
statement of John Keel must--for all but the most hardened
skeptics--ring in our ears. 'The earth is not inhabited,' says
Keel. 'It's infested.'"
If indeed the earth is 'infested' by
beings whose purposes can only now be guessed at, one thing seems
increasingly clear; the dualistic worldview which
Dr. John Mack
discussed--the idea that the spiritual realm and material realm are
separate parts of the same reality--may at last be known... and
sooner than many people are prepared for or can conceive.
between "angels", "demons", and ET phenomena have been recognized by
experts of different fields for some time. More and more question
the mechanized "nuts-and-bolts" approach to defining UFO
phenomena in favor of, for want of a better term, "spiritual
conceptualization" of ET.
According to Dr. John Mack (Abduction),
alien beings that appear to come to us from the sky in strange
spacecraft present a particularly confusing challenge.... For they
seem to partake of properties belonging to both the spirit and
material worlds, bridging, as if effortlessly, the division
between these realms which have become increasingly sacred and
unbreachable since science and religion went their separate ways
in the 17th century.
On the one hand these beings seem able to be
seen by the abductees, who feel their bodies moved and find small
lesions inflicted upon them. On the other hand the beings seem to
come, like intermediaries from God or the devil, from a nonembodied source.... My own impression is that we may be
witnessing... an awkward joining of two species, engineered by an
intelligence we are unable to fathom...."
In his book,
"Everything I have learned in 20
years of research into the UFO abduction phenomenon leads me to
conclude that the aliens' central purpose is not to teach us about
taking better care of the environment; instead, all of the
evidence points to their being here to carry out a complex
breeding experiment in which they seem to be working to create a
hybrid species, a mix of human and alien characteristics."
My wife and I fictionalized a
worse-case scenario about this in our book, The Ahriman Gate:
Tapping his finger against his palm
as if to emphasize the next point, Jones stressed, "And as far as
how UFOs would be used to deceive us, this comes down to an
argument of origins."
"The ageless question—where did we
come from? If people believe UFOnauts are advanced
extraterrestrials scurrying about in spaceships, and that these
same creatures visited the Earth in ancient days and tinkered with
hominid DNA, that disturbs the Judeo-Christian doctrine concerning
the age of the Earth and biblical creation. Satan would love
people to believe we are nothing more than an alien zoology
program. Of course," he said, rolling his eyes, "there’s always
Indy’s Theory of UFOlogy."
"Indy’s Theory? As in your own
"Mine and a few others."
Sheri smiled. "Tell us about this
"I thought you’d never ask.
According to the Bible, the End Times will be accompanied by
fearful sights and great signs from heaven. The book of Second
Thessalonians even says that, when the Antichrist is revealed, he
will be accompanied by ‘lying wonders.’ Maybe these verses are
talking about UFOs being used to introduce the Man of Sin.
Wouldn’t the world react to the sudden arrival of an intergalactic
wise man with awe and wonder? The prophecies of Daniel seem to
support this possibility."
"You’re telling me the prophet
Daniel talked about a Last Days invasion of UFOs?" Joe said,
"No, no. But he said the Antichrist
will be a worshiper of Baal, and Baal was the lord of the sky. As
Baalbamoth he was the lord of the aerial regions. As Baalzebub he
was the lord of those that ‘fly’ or that flit about in the
atmosphere. In the New Testament, Satan himself is referred to as
the prince of the powers of the air. Therefore Scriptures lead me
to believe that the aerial phenomena you and I interpret as UFO
activity could be part of a Last Days delusion—something to
trick humanity into accepting the appearance of Antichrist."
Joe took a deep breath and exhaled
slowly. UFOs could introduce the Antichrist, huh? He stared
at the image. "So when it comes to these Anunnaki, you believe
we’re talking about fallen angels?"
"In a nutshell, yes."
"And somehow this relates to our
little image here."
"In ways I don’t understand. To be
honest, I’m amazed to see Sumerian written on it. If it’s not a
fake, I would…"
"I already told you it’s real," Joe
said, defensive of his father’s claims.
Jones picked the image up and
turned it over in his hand. "Don’t be offended, Joe. I’m just a
professor. We’re paid to be cautious, even skeptical. So listen. I
have a friend who runs an independent laboratory. He does all
kinds of subcontract work for the state and federal government,
mostly crime lab stuff, but also a little radiocarbon and
metallurgy testing. If you’d let me borrow this thing for a couple
days, I could have him run a series of tests on it to determine
its age and material makeup. We could even do a photo analysis and
database search to see if any comparable artifacts have been
discovered or described in the past. This is the best way I know
to provide an authoritative answer. With your permission, I’d like
to take it to him right away."
And later in our story...
Corsivino frowned. "We found our
dream disintegrating. No matter how we tried, we couldn’t
replicate the Nibiruan Key’s effect on the Enigma nor obtain the
vortex described by
the Dropa discs. To make matters worse, the
project took an unexpected turn when advanced human DNA labeling
was discovered in the Dropa. It illustrated genetic manipulation
the Anunnaki thousands of years before, including specific
formulas for improving the human species."
Maybe Dr. Jones knew what he was talking about
after all, Joe thought.
formulas called for introducing animal, and, in at least one case,
alien DNA into human genome. Experts at the Pentagon quickly
determined humanity had been the subject of unknown mutation
experiments. They convened a black operations panel and concluded
that regardless of what else the Dropa texts represented, the
discovery provided a unique opportunity for human enhancement
"So this is where you got involved,
I take it," Dave said.
"Following the panel’s
above-top-secret report, genetic engineers like myself were given
unprecedented resources, and the genome sciences were born."
"Sickening," Joe slipped.
Corsivino looked into his deep
green eyes. "I understand. Not everybody was enthusiastic about
our research back then, either. There were project
scientists—those of religious persuasion—that came to believe the
spacecraft and its contents were a remnant of forbidden
technology, something cast down from heaven, perhaps a leftover of
Lucifer’s rebellion against God."
"Did they express these views?" Joe
knew in the military that you usually keep your mouth shut, even
when you disagree.
"A Jesuit named
Malachi Malina did.
He openly cautioned about dark forces he thought were trying to
initiate Armageddon again, to unleash the Antichrist."
"What do you mean, trying again?"
"You know, another Hitler or
Antiochus Epiphanes, except this time a very high-tech one. The
Jesuit based his conclusions about the Nibiruan Key and its
devilish connection on similarities between ancient history
involving the Nibiruans, or Anunnaki, and the genetic experiments
growing out of our research."
This was really starting to sound
like Jones now.
"He showed us where the Anunnaki offered weapons
technology to Israel’s enemies in exchange for women. The
antediluvian females became hosts to genetic experiments,
resulting in a breed of giants called
"Like Goliath," Dave said.
"According to Malina, yes. Goliath was one of an
army of giants, created to destroy God’s people and to take over
the world. God thwarted the original plan by eliminating the
"And that was that." Dave said.
"I wish it were that simple. Malina believed
history was repeating itself—that the disc recovered from Sedona
was a Trojan horse—something to trick world governments into
joining forces with Satan in preparation of Armageddon. Malina
even speculated that the alien bodies we had recovered were
demonic concoctions." …
"Sounds like something a friend told me
recently," Joe said to Corsivino.
"Dr. Jones, a friend of the family, he believes
aliens and demons are one and the same."
"Father Malina was convinced of it, and he
claimed it was illustrated in history books from civilizations
around the world."
"History books? You mean mythology, don’t you?"
"Both. I remember Malina discussing the Greek
Titans, how their legend began with so-called gods mating with
earth women. He compared that story to Genesis where the Sons of
God took women for wives and their offspring became mighty men of
old. He also showed us how the word Titan equals 666 in Greek and
means ‘gray, whitish, or chalky gray,’ fitting the skin coloration
of the bodies recovered at Sedona. He certainly felt we were
opening the gates to an ancient perdition by tinkering with this
"So…he’s the one that convinced you to quit?"
Joe asked, referring to Malina.
"What started me thinking we scientists had been
duped was a meeting between Major General William H. Layton, the
secretary of defense, and Montero’s top genetic researchers."
Joe recognized the Major General’s name. He had
heard him speak while he was stationed in Hawaii. He was
definitely a command presence, not somebody to second-guess.
told us that Special Agent Apol Leon—a military expert of some
kind—would be in charge of genetic research in our department from
there on out. We were becoming an All Black operation. No
information concerning our undertaking was to be divulged to any
military or government departments outside our own. This was now a
top-level national security issue. Of course we voiced our
allegiance and reaffirmed our oaths, but the ethics of our work
certainly changed after Apol Leon, and Hell, came to Montero."
It suddenly dawned on Joe that Corsivino was
talking about the man on his answering machine at home. He froze
and listened carefully.
"Mr. Leon was on special assignment from
Wright-Patterson Airforce Base where the alien bodies were kept.
After formal introduction of him, General Layton disclosed top
secret information related to an advanced race of humanoids, which
supposedly visited Earth some ten thousand years ago."
"What proof did they offer of that allegation?"
Dave said smartly.
"What proof did they need to offer? We had the
alien bodies and their ship."
Dave opened his hands, palms up. "I mean that
Earth was visited ten thousand years ago?"
"According to General Layton, the aliens left
evidence of their visit everywhere—the pyramids, Nazca Lines, even
an ancient city on Mars where excavations were underway by joint
U.S.-Soviet stealth expeditions. We were told in no uncertain
terms that these aliens were our creators. Homo sapiens was the
product of their genetic handiwork on apes."
Joe stared across the room at Dave’s computers
again. He was familiar with many U.S. political and military
figures. This was astounding information and probably confirmed
Dave’s worst conspiracy fears. He returned his sights to Corsivino
and said, "General Layton actually said that?"
"Not only that. We were told of a second, more
aggressive breed of creature called Anakim. The aliens made them
to rule over the newly created people. Each Anakim had the
strength of ten men. They were ruthless, but outnumbered by the
humans. Eventually they were killed by hordes of men after the
aliens, who were also known as ‘flying geniuses,’ departed for
outer space. According to General Layton, the death of the Anakim
was recorded in the mythos of every ancient culture, including the
Bible, where the Hebrews called them Nephilim."
"But why would a Major General get involved with
all this mythology?"
"A newly deciphered portion of
the Dropa had
caught his attention. It provided the genetic formula for
recreating the Anakim-Nephilim. Needless to say, the military was
profoundly interested in it. This represented the ultimate
soldier, a perfect killing machine, and Apol Leon was at Montero
to introduce our researchers to the technology we would use to
manufacture them—the cutting-edge science of transgenics."
Joe realized he was clenching his fists again.
His head was tilted down, his eyes fixed on Corsivino. He needed
to calm down, think about his plan, glean as much information as
he could from this man before making his move. He bit his lip and
said, "So, Apol Leon came to teach you about transgenics, huh, the
technology you would use to re-create the Nephilim. What does that
stated, transgenics is the science of altering the genetic
structure of one species by introducing the DNA of a different
species into its genome. Under Apol’s watchful eye, transgenics at
Montero developed in the form of male human embryos having their
molecular biology altered through inserting animal and alien DNA
into their genome."
"Just where does one get alien DNA? I assume you
don’t run to the corner market for it."
Corsivino grinned. "From the specimens we
recovered at Sedona. Those strands produced the most fascinating
and horrific results."
Dave shook his head. "I hate to think what
"Mutated embryos aggressive inside their
mother’s wombs, highly intelligent, brutish creatures after birth,
babies with phenomenal growth rates, an unequivocal thirst to
rule, conquer, and dominate."
"You must have been so proud," Joe smirked
again. Remember! Diplomacy!
"Actually, we were flabbergasted. At six months
of age the real problems developed. The chimera—or Nephilim
as Apol insisted we call them—became uncontrollable. Due to their
size and physical strength, special cages had to be designed to
hold them. A few months after that we found it necessary to
implant control chips directly into their brains."
"Evidently those chips were not foolproof at
supervising your babies."
"What? Why do you say that?"
"Because at least one of them escaped," Joe
said. He took a moment to fill Corsivino and Dave in on the
recovery near Montero. He described the appearance of the carcass,
the arm that was now in Dr. Jones’s possession, and the wire
inside the beast’s head. He speculated that Jones was having the
specimen tested at Nathan Reel’s laboratory.
Corsivino’s reaction was one of astonishment.
"That’s what he had in the blanket at the hillside? This arm?"
"Well, when and if that arm’s DNA is analyzed, a
fifth and sixth nucleotide will be discovered. It’s unlike
anything ever seen in animal or human DNA before. It could really
open a can of worms."
Good. "And the wire in
the giant’s head? That was one of your control devices?"
"It’s called AngelStar. It too was a product of
reverse engineering, actually designed for human implantation. The
aggressive nature of the Nephilim forced us to interface the
neural chip with the beast’s brains, in order to control them.
From what I remember it caused the creatures to become lethargic
when set at one hundred sixteen megahertz."
Dave, sounding like his contemptible old self
again, said, "But did it satisfy naysayers?"
"What do you mean, naysayers?"
"The scientists that were uncomfortable with the
project…the Malina guy and the others who thought this might be an
Antichrist thing. Were they willing to go along with the research
once they saw the ape-men could be controlled?"
Corsivino looked confused by the question and
said, "The fact that we learned to control the beasts was a
separate issue to Malina and his colleagues. Questions about the
ethics of our research grew regardless, even among the
nonreligious types. Eventually, I found myself among them."
Joe raised an eyebrow. "I thought you said you
were a project leader?"
"I was, but you must understand, Joe, even
though I knew I was breaking my own values, there was something
alluring about our work. It was as if a beautiful Siren stood
somewhere in the distance, bidding us to come to her. It drew us
back day after day with promises of discovery and immortality.
Indeed, we believed our work would immortalize us in more ways
"But you were finally convinced otherwise?"
"It all came to a head one day during a casual
conversation with Malachi Malina. He’d been removed from the
research program at Montero a week before. The official reasoning
was ambiguous, but we all knew Malachi was terminated as a result
of his challenging the ethics of Montero’s research. In the days
following his departure, Malachi contacted several team members,
including myself. He couldn’t speak publicly, so he chose to
address his former co-workers privately, to challenge our moral
apathy. In my case, he specifically wondered why as a professing
Christian I was not concerned with my role at Montero, why I
couldn’t see it as an affront to the divine order."
Joe was incredulous. "You’re a Christian?"
"Is that so hard to believe?"
"With the work you were involved in? Yes, as a
matter of fact."
"Then you and Father Malina would have agreed.
He came right out and asked me. ‘Andrew,’ he said, ‘the Bible
tells us that God commands humans, animals, and plants to
reproduce after their own kind. If God requires species integrity,
how do you reconcile what you are doing? Your research at Montero
not only violates Scripture, but could open a Pandora’s box to a
molecular biological nightmare.’"
"He was right," Joe said, not that he understood
"I know, in many ways, I see that now. By
introducing animal and alien DNA into human genome, we were
breaching the species barrier and producing unclassified mutations
Joe couldn’t help himself. Even though he wanted
to play this guy, he scoffed, "Yet you remained. I sure hope the
pay was good."
"Actually, I left the program not long after
"I remember that," Dave said, raising his
finger. "It was big news."
Joe was more interested in what motivated him.
"Was it a conflict of conscience, or were you just protecting your
"I’d say a mixture of both, although my
conscience drives me these days, believe it or not."
"That’s not an answer."
in particular, the problem for me was this: The molecular
biologists at Montero classified the functions of the alien genes
supplied by Apol Leon. Yet none of them knew how the gene’s coding
would react from the alien species to human.
There were strong
possibilities that interspecies differences would measurably
effect the gene’s protein interactions, thus modifying the human
hereditary traits in the mutations. That represented a potential
catastrophe beyond measure."
Joe hoped he would rephrase the comment so he
could understand the important point.
As if reading his mind, Corsivino said, "Let me
put it a different way. Since interbreeding between humans and
Nephilim was now theoretically possible, it was reasonable to
believe the would get out of the bottle someday. When
that happened, alien and animal characteristics would be
introduced to our own species, altering the human genetic code and
eventually eliminating humanity as we know it. Malachi Malina
believed this was not only possible, but also perhaps the whole
idea. That was something I could not be part of."
Joe was contemplative, then finally said,
"Sounds like a Dr. Jones theory."
"Something the professor told me about God
having to destroy the human race during Noah’s flood because
giants had interbred with humans. According to Jones, by the time
Noah and his children came along, they were the only ones left
with DNA not corrupted by intermarriage with Nephilim and their
offspring. In order to preserve the human species, God had to
eliminate everybody but Noah and his family."
"Jones is a smart man," Corsivino said. "What
would you say if I told you a similar plan is unfolding as we
speak, right beneath the world’s nose?"
"I’d hope you were kidding. A plan to annihilate
mankind by interbreeding humans with Nephilim? Why would anybody
want to do that?"
"They are deceived. The government and military
are deceived. They believe their research is leading to a super
army that will police a New World Order—a better world system.
Those of us in Operation Gadfly think differently. We believe
Montero’s work is part of a larger scheme to force Armageddon and
to enslave mankind."
Dave raised his hand again. "Operation Gadfly?"
"It’s a consortium of scientists dedicated to
the destruction of Montero, its research and researchers, and
similar factories around the world."
"You mean there’s more than one factory!?"
"Oh yes. Nine others in the Alliance of Nations.
Ten in total."
