THEY COME IN PEACE

Updated on July 2, 2014

ALL ABOARD THE MOTHERSHIP!

If we live to see anything remotely close to this ever happen, I fear that many of us would probably not handle it well. Many of my friends who are involved in spirituality, conspiracy theories and other fringe like topics, think this may be because man is selfish and ethnocentric concerning his own existence. Others say that there isn't enough physical evidence to support the claims that extraterrestrial life is visiting us.

Evidence you say? Get ready for this! Some Christian friends of mine have even said that since they have never seen a UFO or alien that they can't believe in such nonsense. I had to remind certain of these people that even though faith is a gift that I possess, people who do not believe in Christianity could (and do) say the same thing about Jesus Christ's resurrection and the parting of the Red Sea. Thus saying that the events that took place in the Holy Bible are too unbelievable to believe. Likewise the people that lived in biblical times would have the same reaction if we were somehow able to discuss the moon walk or any other advancements we have achieved in our time.

Is that an eye opener or what? Imagine people not believing in something that we all know to be the truth. That's where the topic of alien life gets sort of fuzzy. I know that I have not had any close encounters, but I must confess that I love to look at the night sky and there are times I have to look twice. There is a clip that has circulated around the Internet pertaining to a UFO sighting at O'hare International Airport a few years ago. Possible? Probable? Perhaps. If this is real then what if they are hostile? How would we defend ourselves against an alien race that can travel through space seemingly at will? Or would we be at their mercy as they descend upon us like locusts?

Sargent Major Robert O. Dean U.S. Army (Ret.) worked in Emergency Management and formerly hosted Alien Insiders, speaks about the existence of aliens with a great deal of passion. The old guy speaks with a gentle and kind voice, and yet wields enough conviction to scourge the earth twice. He believes that aliens mean us no harm and that they played a major role in our being here and understands aliens to be our friends. Mr. Dean gives so many historical references from his own experience being a former military man that I am only left with one conclusion; Right or wrong you can be damn sure that Robert Dean believes what he says. I know a nuclear physicist who is known to have seen and worked on a UFO. Since he regrets breaking his silence I can not name him. Do I believe him? Whether the UFO is alien or not is questionable. Skilled tradesmen (and women) can build just about anything. So I guess my answer would be in a way... yes. Outside of the UFO, I noted that he didn't make any unbelievable or outlandish claims.

So what does it all mean? There are after all prehistoric drawing and etchings in caves and on mountains all over the world that appear to communicate to us that the ancients' have dealt with this phenomenon. We know that they have worshiped the sun, moon, and other radiant objects in the heavens. Could these ancient carvings be symbolic references to their servitude? We may never know. It is a distinct possibility that man has not been given enough evidence to support these claims of extraterrestrial beings that abound. I find Robert Dean's story compelling. But is his testimony, or anyone else's for that matter enough?

Some people say that the U.S. Government is covering up this reality. That is another possibility. Could the military be flying the UFO that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico? The U.S. Defense Department may be flying some aircraft that they have found. They may have also built prototype aircraft that they are testing to demonstrate their strength and ingenuity. If any of this is true then how are all these events aimed at protecting and preserving our union against all enemies foreign, domestic, or even alien?

One day when I was at work I was having a conversation with my fringe friendly co-worker. Fringe friendly in this context referes to a person who you can discuss oddities with and bounce ideas of off. As we stood in the office he was telling me that he believed in various alien races and said that "it would be a very boring world if they didn't exist". As he finished his statement the helicopter that we heard in the distance finely flew over and we stepped outside to watch. As the aircraft continued to get smaller and smaller and become a speck in the sky his eyes finely met mine and I asked him, "It's boring, Isn't it"? My co-worker looked away and quietly agreed.

      I am aware of these events. Nothing was conclusive, but the fly over in Mexico City footage was interesting. Maybe it's a demonstration of superiority or a hoax. We may never know.

      WHAT ABOUT THE PHOENIX LIGHTS, THE MEXICO CITY FLY-OVER, AND TINLEY PARK? You may want to look at these, they are very interesting. I can't argue that they could land and the government could do nothing about it, I think because the military can not possibly be everywhere at once. Very surprising hub!

      Very interesting article. But you are not saying about few things. I won't say that you are not right about UFO, but if this phenomenon is real why there are no high quality pictures of it? Everything that appears is always very LQ movie with many doubts about the authentic source of it. And also - there are no physical prove that could give us certainty. About Jesus - we have a real historical source that tells us about his life (I know that Bible doesn't have to be used as a Holy Book, but see how many historical events in Bible match our history).
