Early Revelatory Literature

Could every one of our religions have origins in that other world – wherever and whatever it is?

The Islam religion was founded when prophet Muhammad had a vision of the angel Gabriel presenting him a silk cloth with holy writing on it. The Mormon faith originated in 1821 when Joseph Smith was directed by the angel Moroni to locate engraved gold plates in an Indian mound in upstate New York which he translated into the Book of Mormon. The plates conveniently disappeared after the translating.

The book OHPSE was written in 1880 by New York dentist Dr. John Newbrough after he awoke to find beings, appearing as pillars of light, instructing him to buy a typewriter and sit for an hour each day and type the “holy” words. Despite not knowing how to type, Newbrough turned out 1,200 words per hour that compiled a massive cosmology and history of the human race and revealing, for the first time, the existence of the Van Allen radiation belt around the earth – something only confirmed by scientists in the 1950s.

These large writings and others indicate connection with an outside intelligence, or their writers having a most unusual mind, and yet “their contents are fundamentally different and in some respects incompatible” notes writer Stuart Holyrod

And if these writings were all from the same Source they would be quite similar, true and point to other truths rather than creating more confusion. However, Holyrod speculates, these “signs and wonders” are evidence the communications are external rather than psychological and “The most plausible hypothesis that emerges from a study of revelatory literature is that there exist a considerable number of communicators, themselves at different levels of spiritual evolution” and each one using different ways to support claims – miracles, mystery and vanishing holy books while “at the lower end of the scale there would appear to be a category of mischievous, lying entity that is endowed with superpowers by human standards but is bent upon sowing confusing and discord on Earth.” (Holyrod - Alien Intelligence: How Ancient Astronauts Guide Human Progress)

Demons Haunt Our World

Researcher John Keel found this out between 1965-68 when writing The Mothman Prophecies involving strange events in the area of Point Pleasant, West Virginia.

Included in this history of perhaps the weirdest of the weird where UFO sightings were confirmed by radar, poltergeists, cow mutilations, flying “Mothmen” and contactees receiving messages.

Keel believed that there is a category of “ultra terrestrial” beings “who were the original inhabitants of this planet” and “These ‘nonphysical beings from the world of higher frequencies’ may resent man’s take-over.” The evidence so far would seem to indicate such.

And perhaps in an effort to keep us in the dark the ultra terrestrials have been busy down through the ages confusing mankind, edging us into Dark Ages and manipulating us toward the path of dumb. Carl Sagan once wrote, “The plain lesson is that study and learning – not just of science, but of anything – are avoidable, even desirable.” (The Demon Haunted World)

Sagan added, “For much of our history, we were so fearful of the outside world, with its unpredictable dangers, that we gladly embraced anything that promised to soften or explain away the terror . . . Microbiology and meteorology now explain what only a few centuries ago was considered sufficient cause to burn women to death.”

He said, “I worry that, especially as the Millennium edges nearer, pseudoscience and superstition will seem year by year more tempting, the siren song of unreason more sonorous and attractive.” And this comment should chill us all. “When we agonize about our diminished cosmic place and purpose, or when fanaticism is bubbling up around us . . . then, habits of thought familiar from ages past reach for the controls. The candle flame flutters. Its little pool of light trembles. Darkness gathers. The demons begin to stir.”

Prophets, Contactees Through The Ages

Numerous religions along with a varied collection of prophets, UFO contactees and the like stand ready to answer our questions.

But doctrines and ethics established in medieval times or before might not be very valid in our very different world of today. If we look carefully, the beings from the other world have been busy adjusting their style and their approach.

From flying carpets to flying shields to flying saucers and from genies in bottles, elves in the English countryside to Orthon from Venus and embryonic creatures to awake us from our sleep. Many of the ancient religious writings urged followers not to think or question the wisdom of God or the gods.

Franz Mesmer, in his development of Mesmerism, urged his followers, “Forget for a while all of your knowledge of physics. Remove from your mind all objections that may occur . . .Never reason for six weeks. . . ..Be very credulous, be very persevering, reject all past experience, and do not listen to reason” and “never magnetize before inquisitive persons.”

And how many dowsers, spoon benders, mind readers and contactees have you heard who want few people to question them and certainly no scientific mind in the area?

The contactees and channelers can spew forth reams and reams of meaningless “love thy brother”, “don’t pollute” phrases but how many of them can really give out important, useful, scientific knowledge?

Conyers, Georgia resident Nancy Fowler claimed, for several years, the Virgin Mary visited her and provided advice – enough to draw about 30,000 people a year, on the 13th of each month to her residence.

Fowler would go outside and give the Virgin’s messages to those gathered in her yard. Most of the messages, according to press reports were recommendations to pray, make daily sacrifices and change evil ways – no great revelations there except in 1997 when the Virgin supposedly warned of a coming war and told Fowler that 1998 would be the last year of her visits. (Birmingham News Oct 17, 1997)

Anyone can give vague moral judgments but the aliens seem totally incapable of providing concrete solutions and truths.

But look back! In the 1940s and 50s the aliens gave dire warnings against nuclear weapons. Now the problems are environmental degradation and global warming. They seem to have conveniently grabbed a hot news topic and ran with it, building support among those who would listen and perhaps changing or helping change our thoughts and actions.

But how involved were they really? How much did we really listen to them or do they want us to think we were listening? They seem to have only warned mankind about things that we really already knew about.
