V. CONCLUSION

WE ONCE BELIEVED THAT THE EARTH IS THE ONLY PLANET IN THE UNIVERSE THAT

SUPPORTS LIFE. TODAY THERE IS OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE THAT NOT ONLY SUGGESTS, BUT

SUPPORTS THE VERY REAL POSSIBILITY THAT WE MAY SHARE THE UNIVERSE WITH OTHER

INTELLIGENT BEINGS.

ON JUNE 24TH, 1947, WHILE SEARCHING FOR THE REMAINS OF A DOWNED MARINE

C-46 TRANSPORT LOST SOMEWHERE IN THE MOUNT RANIER AREA, A YOUNG IDAHOAN

BUSINESSMAN NAMED KENNETH ARNOLD SPOTTED SOMETHING THAT WOULD CHANGE HIS LIFE

FOREVER. JUST NORTH OF HIS POSITION FLYING AT AN ALTITUDE OF 9,500 FEET AND AN

UNPRECEDENTED AIRSPEED OF 1,700 MPH HE SPOTTED NINE CIRCULAR AIRCRAFT FLYING IN

FORMATION AND ACCORDING TO HIS ESTIMATE THE AIRCRAFT WERE APPROXIMATELY THE SIZE

OF A DC-4 AIRLINER ( JACKSON 4).

THIS ACCOUNT WAS THE FIRST SIGHTING TO EVER RECEIVE A GREAT DEAL OF

MEDIA ATTENTION. THIS SIGHTING GAVE BIRTH TO THE PHRASE “FLYING SAUCER” COINED

BY A REPORTER NAMED BILL BEGRETTE. ALTHOUGH NOT THE FIRST UFO SIGHTING IN

HISTORY, KENNETH ARNOLDS ACCOUNT IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE FIRST DOCUMENTED UFO

SIGHTING. THE FOLLOWING DAY MR. ARNOLD DISCOVERED THAT IN ADDITION TO HIS

SIGHTING THERE WERE SEVERAL OTHERS IN THE MOUNT RANIER AREA THAT SAME DAY

(JACKSON 6).

WHEN MOST OF US THINK OF UFO SIGHTINGS, WE PICTURE AN UNEMPLOYED, HALF-

CRAZED, ALCOHOLIC HICK LIVING IN A TRAILER PARK IN THE MIDDLE OF SMALL TOWN, USA.

OFTEN TIMES THIS DESCRIPTION, ALTHOUGH A LITTLE EXAGGERATED, SEEMS TO FIT

FAIRLY WELL. IN THE PAST, WHEN THE AVERAGE PERSON SPOTTED A UFO THEY WERE

QUICKLY DISCOUNTED AS A KOOK OR CON-ARTIST IN SEARCH OF EITHER ATTENTION OR

MONETARY REWARD. IT WASN’T UNTIL MORE REPUTABLE FIGURES IN OUR SOCIETY BEGAN TO

COME FORWARD THAT WE STARTED LOOKING AT THIS ISSUE A LITTLE MORE SERIOUSLY. AN

ARTICLE WRITTEN IN 1957, ENTITLED ” STRANGE LIGHTS OVER GRENADA” WRITTEN BY

AIME’ MICHEL DESCRIBES JUST SUCH AN ACCOUNT:

AT 10:35 P.M. ON SEPTEMBER THE 4TH, 1957, CPT. FERREIRA ORDERED HIS WING TO

ABANDON A PLANNED EXERCISE AND EXECUTE A 50 DEGREE TURN TO PORT. FERREIRA WAS

ATTEMPTING TO GET A CLOSER LOOK AT WHAT HE DESCRIBED AS BRILLIANT, PULSATING

LIGHT HANGING LOW OVER THE HORIZON. WHEN THE TURN WAS COMPLETED HE NOTICED THAT

THE OBJECT HAD TURNED TOO. IT WAS STILL DIRECTLY OVER HIS LEFT. THERE WAS

ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT THAT THE ORANGE LIGHT WAS SHADOWING THE F-84S. FOR ANOTHER

10 MINUTES, IT FOLLOWED THE JETS WITHOUT CHANGING DIRECTION OR APPEARANCE. THE

PILOTS WATCHED AS FOUR SMALL YELLOW DISCS BROKE AWAY FROM THE LARGE RED OBJECT

AND TOOK UP A FORMATION ON EITHER SIDE OF IT. ALL AT ONCE THE LARGE LUMINOUS

DISC SHOT VERTICALLY UPWARD WHILE THE SMALLER DISCS SHOT STRAIGHT TOWARDS THE F-

84S. IN AN INSTANT THE FLAT DISC SPED OVERHEAD IN A HAZY BLUR AND VANISHED.

WHEN CPT. FERRIERA WAS QUESTIONED BY PORTUGUESE AIR FORCE INVESTIGATORS, HE WAS

QUOTED AS SAYING: “PLEASE DON’T COME OUT WITH THE OLD EXPLANATION THAT WE WERE

BEING CHASED BY THE PLANET VENUS, WEATHER BALLOONS, OR FREAK ATMOSPHERIC

CONDITIONS. WHAT WE SAW UP THERE WAS REAL AND INTELLIGENTLY CONTROLLED AND IT

SCARED THE HELL OUT OF US. (32)

THIS IS ONLY ONE OF LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF PILOT ACCOUNTS THAT HAVE BEEN

DOCUMENTED AND CROSS VERIFIED BY OTHER SOURCES. TO DATE THE PORTUGUESE

GOVERNMENT HAS TAKEN NO OFFICIAL POSITION AS TO WHAT THE LUMINOUS DISCS WERE.

THE UNITED STATES HAS HAD MORE THAN IT’S FAIR SHARE OF UNEXPLAINED

AERIAL OBJECTS. IN FEBRUARY OF 1960 THE N.A.A.D.S. (NORTH AMERICAN AIR DEFENSE

SYSTEM) SPOTTED A SATELLITE OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN ORBITING THE EARTH. THEY KNEW

THAT IT WASN’T A SOVIET SATELLITE BECAUSE IT WAS ORBITING PERPENDICULAR TO THE

TRAJECTORY PRODUCED BY A SOVIET LAUNCH. IT ALSO HAD A MASS ESTIMATED AT 15

METRIC TONS, NO EVIDENCE OF BOOSTER ROCKETS AND TRAVELED AT SPEED THREE TIMES

FASTER THAN ANY KNOWN SATELLITE. THE SATELLITE ORBITED FOR TWO WEEKS AND

DISAPPEARED WITHOUT A TRACE. BEFORE ITS DISAPPEARANCE, THE OBJECT WHICH

APPEARED TO GIVE OFF A RED GLOW, WAS PHOTOGRAPHED OVER NEW YORK SEVERAL TIMES

(JACKSON 19).

LIGHTS IN THE SKY AREN’T THE ONLY EVIDENCE THAT SUGGESTS WE MAY HAVE

COSMIC COMPANY. IN THE BOOK “A HISTORY OF UFO CRASHES,” THE AUTHOR KEVIN D.

RANDAL GIVES DETAILED ACCOUNTS OF NUMEROUS UFO CRASHES IN HISTORY. PERHAPS THE

MOST FAMOUS OF THESE CRASHES OCCURRED ON JULY 4TH, 1947 IN ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO.

THE CRASH AT ROSWELL WAS WITNESSED FROM AFAR BY OVER A HUNDRED PEOPLE. UNTIL

JUST RECENTLY, NO ONE WHO WAS INVOLVED IN THE RECOVERY OPERATION WAS TALKING,

BUT THANKS TO CONTINUED PRESSURE FROM UFO ENTHUSIAST OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BEGUN TO

DECLASSIFY MUCH OF ITS UFO RELATED MATERIAL. PERHAPS MORE STARTLING IS THAT THE

GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS WERE THE ACCOUNTS GIVEN BY LOCAL POLICE AND MEMBERS OF THE

RECOVERY TEAM. ACCORDING TO ONE UNNAMED WITNESS, A MEMBER OF THE ROSWELL

RECOVERY TEAM, HE STATED:

“THE CRASH SITE WAS LITTERED WITH PIECES OF AIRCRAFT. SOMETHING ABOUT THE SIZE

OF A FIGHTER PLANE HAD CRASHED, THE METAL WAS UNLIKE ANYTHING I’D EVER SEEN

BEFORE. I PICKED UP A PIECE THE SIZE OF A CAR FENDER WITH ONE HAND, IT COULDN’T

HAVE BEEN MORE THAN A QUARTER OF A POUND AND NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRIED I

COULDN’T EVEN GET IT TO BEND.” (10)

IN MY OPINION THE MOST FASCINATING PIECE OF EVIDENCE TO COME OUT OF THE

ROSWELL CRASH IS THE ALIEN AUTOPSY FILM. APPARENTLY THERE WAS MORE THAN BITS AND

PIECES OF A SPACESHIP RECOVERED AT ROSWELL. THERE IS AN AIR FORCE VIDEO ACCOUNT

OF AN AUTOPSY BEING PERFORMED ON A LIFE FORM THAT DOESN’T SHARE THE COMMON

CHARACTERISTICS OF ORGAN DEVELOPMENT FOUND IN LIFE FORMS ON THIS PLANET. THE

FILM IS SILENT AND LABELED “AUTOPSY, ROSWELL, JULY 1947″ (RANDAL 17).

AS DIFFICULT AS THE ROSWELL EVIDENCE IS TO EXPLAIN OR DISCOUNT, IT PALES

IN COMPARISON TO THE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE LEFT BY OUR ANCESTORS. AN ILLUSTRATION

TAKEN FROM A NUREMBURG BROADSHEET TELLS HOW MEN AND WOMEN “SAW A VERY FRIGHTFUL

SPECTACLE.” AT SUNRISE APRIL 14TH, 1561, “GLOBES, CROSSES, AND TUBES BEGAN TO

FIGHT ONE ANOTHER.” THE EVENT CONTINUED FOR ABOUT AN HOUR. AFTERWARD THEY FELL

TO THE GROUND IN FLAMES, MINUTES LATER A “BLACK, SPEAR LIKE OBJECT APPEARED.”

IN A BASAL BROADSHEET DATED AUGUST 7TH, 1566, LARGE, BLACK, AND WHITE GLOBES ARE

SEEN OVER DASEL, SWITZERLAND. BOTH EVENTS OCCURRED IN A TIME PERIOD WHEN THERE

SHOULD HAVE BEEN NOTHING MORE THAN BIRDS AND BEES FILLING OUR SKIES. THEY EACH

CONSIDERED TO BE DIVINE WARNINGS AT THE TIME (GOULD 95-96).

ANCIENT PHYSICAL EVIDENCE ISN’T LIMITED TO NEWSPAPER ILLUSTRATION AND

SKETCHES ON CAVE WALL. PERHAPS THE MOST ASTOUNDING AND UNEXPLAINABLE PIECES OF

PHYSICAL EVIDENCE ARE A PAIR OF GEODES. BOTH ARE BELIEVED TO BE APPROXIMATELY

1,800 YEARS OLD AND WHEN CAREFULLY EXAMINED WERE IDENTIFIED AS ELECTRICAL CELLS.

ONE OF THE CELLS WHICH WAS DISCOVERED IN IRAQ WAS TESTED AND PRODUCED 2 VOLTS OF

ELECTRICITY. THE OTHER, WHICH WAS DISCOVERED BY A PAIR OF ARIZONA ROCK HOUNDS,

WAS DAMAGED WHEN THE SEDIMENTARY ENCRUSTATION WAS BEING REMOVED AND THEREFORE

COULDN’T BE TESTED (MONTGOMERY 221).

SINCE THE DAWN OF TIME, MAN HAS TOLD STORIES OF HEAVENLY AND DEMONIC

BEINGS COMING TO RULE, TEACH, TORMENT, SEDUCE AND PROVIDE SALVATION. EVERY

CULTURE HAS MYTHS OF ANCIENT GODS WHO STRODE THROUGH THE HEAVENS. THE AMERICAN

INDIANS HAD THE CACHINAS WHO TAUGHT THEM TO FARM AND SAVED THEM FROM NUMEROUS

CATACLYSMS. GREECE HAD ZEUS WHO THREW LIGHTNING BOLTS FROM HIS FINGER TIPS AND

APOLLO CROSSED THE SKY IN HIS GOLDEN CHARIOT. THE CHRISTIANS HAVE ECCLESIASTES

WHO ENCOUNTERED THE “ANT PEOPLE” AND RODE THROUGH THE SKIES WITH THEM FROM

BABYLON TO ISRAEL. ACROSS THE ENTIRE GLOBE WE FIND DRAWINGS ON CAVE WALLS THAT

RESEMBLE MEN IN SPACE SUITS AND OBJECTS THAT GREATLY RESEMBLE FLYING SAUCERS.

THE SACRED ARTWORK OF THE HOPI INDIAN, IS WITHOUT A DOUBT A REPRESENTATION OF

THE WAVES PRODUCED BY MODERN DAY OSCILLOSCOPES (MONTGOMERY 225-237). THE HOPIS

ARE ALSO NATIVE TO THE AREA WHERE ONE OF THE ELECTRICAL CELLS WERE FOUND. IT

COULD BE THAT THESE THINGS ARE NO MORE THAN MERE COINCIDENCE, BUT I DOUBT IT.

MAN IN HIS ARROGANCE IS RELUCTANT TO BELIEVE THAT WE MAY SHARE GODS IN THIS VAST,

GLORIOUS UNIVERSE WITH OTHER BEINGS OF INTELLIGENCE. WE SOMETIMES FAIL TO

REALIZE THAT, “IF THE EARTH WERE A DAY OLD, THE RACE OF MAN WOULD ONLY HAVE

BEEN THERE FOR 13 MINUTES.” IF YOU COUPLE THAT WITH THE FACT THAT THERE ARE

BLACK HOLES AND WHITE DWARFS MILLIONS OF YEARS OLDER THAN OUR SUN, IT INCREASES

THE IMPROBABILITY THAT WE ARE THE ONLY ONES OUT HERE. I WILL CLOSE THIS PAPER

ON A QUOTE FROM ECCLESIASTES 1:9 “THERE IS NO NEW THING UNDER THE SUN,” AND THAT

INCLUDES INTELLIGENT LIFE.
