The paranormal just keeps getting stranger. UFOs circulating throughout the skies might just very well have different origins—demonic rather than alien. One can only speculate, and speculate we shall.
George A. Filer, the New Jersey State Director for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), puts out a regular newsletter for not only the UFO enthusiast, but also those with just a passing interest in the subject. George’s mission statement in this newsletter is to “report the UFO witness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space.” George’s personal hypothesis is that “with over a thousand UFOs reported each month, it represents technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth.”
The material for this article is drawn from his newsletter, Filers Files #10-2014.
The countless reports of UFO craft, landings, visitations and abductions have made the rounds for many years. Some are just plain silly. Others leave us scratching our heads for a reasonable explanation that makes some form of sense. The newsletter makes a comment upon the fervor of the tale held by many: there are those who adore and somewhat worship these entities and the experience, while others detest them. It appears to be a divided house.
So, it all comes down to…could something else be responsible?
The name John Keel may not ring an immediate bell. He was the author of a rash of books in the 1970s dealing with the paranormal and UFO uncertainties. He is most known for his book detailing the sightings of a large winged creature over Point Pleasant, West Virginia just prior to the collapse of the Silver Bridge on December15, 1967. The book—The Mothman Prophecies—became a movie in 2002, starring actor Richard Gere.
Keel popularized the term Men in Black and was a devoted ufologist. Yet, as time went by he seemed to change his stance, initially endorsing the theory of UFOs as extraterrestrial, but later abandoning this line of thought. When asked about the aliens piloting these mysterious craft that seemed to pop up daily throughout the world, he replied that after years of research he had come to the conclusion they were demonic in nature—non-human entities that were capable of taking on whatever form they wanted. He termed these as ultraterrestrials.
In his early 1970s book, Operation Trojan Horse, Keel defined just what we could be dealing with:
“A demon, daemon or fiend, is a supernatural, often malevolent being prevalent in religion, occultism, literature, fiction, mythology and folklore. In Ancient Near Eastern religions as well as in the Abrahamic traditions, including ancient and medieval Christian demonology, a demon is considered an unclean spirit, sometimes a fallen angel, the spirit of a deceased human, or a spirit of unknown type which may cause demonic possession, calling for an exorcism. A demon is a spiritual entity that may be conjured and controlled.”
Keel goes on:
“Demonology is not just another crack-pot-ology….Thousands of books have been written on the subject, the manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not entirely identical, to the UFO phenomenon itself.
The Devil and his demons can manifest themselves in almost any form and can physically imitate anything from angels to horrifying monsters with glowing eyes. Strange objects and entities materialize and dematerialize in these stories, just as the UFOs and their splendid occupants appear and disappear, walk through walls, and perform other supernatural feats.”
I would guess it could be a matter of your own personal choosing as to the type of alien visitor that you may encounter—cuddly ET types or something more of the reptilian, horrible variety. Or maybe, you have no choice. Keel concludes:
“The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon….”
John Keel, author, ufologist and forward thinker, died July 3, 2009. His voice has been silenced, yet others have continued his line of reasoning.
Jacques Vallee, computer scientist, astrophysicist, astronomer, author, ufologist, and venture capitalist has done extensive research on the subject of extraterrestrials and the ramifications of earthly visits from strange crafts. Born in France, he now lives the good life in southern California and is in demand as a speaker for the various UFO conferences that spring up like lawn dandelions. He served as the real life model for the character in Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, who, at the end of the film, summons the mother ship in by the use of notes on a galactic keyboard. Even Vallee is moving in a different direction of thought. After his many years of research on the subject of UFOs he feels something is amiss and it all adds up to something much more menacing than monsters from outer space. It might just be something a little closer to home!
His book, Messengers of Deception, documents the after-effect of UFO contact claims and the ramifications that ensue as a result. Vallee states quite bluntly:
“Human beings are under the control of a strange force that bends them in absurd ways, forcing them to play a role in a bizarre game of deception.”
His book, Confrontations, continues the thread of alternative thinking that maybe these beings aren’t what they are portraying to be:
“The ‘medical examination’ to which abductees are said to be subjected, often accompanied by sadistic sexual manipulation, is reminiscent of the medieval tales of encounters with demons. It makes no sense in a sophisticated or technical framework: any intelligent being equipped with the scientific marvels that UFOs possess would be in a position to achieve any of these alleged scientific objectives in a shorter time and with fewer risks.”
“The symbolic display seen by the abductees is identical to the type of initiation ritual or astral voyage that is imbedded in the [occult] traditions of every culture…the structure of abduction stories is identical to that of occult initiation rituals…the UFO beings of today belong to the same class of manifestations as the [occult] entities that were described in centuries past.”
A collective sigh of breath….
One comment on the subject of alien abduction, while simple, knocks the ball out of the park:
“For now, one group, abducted, taken by aliens, prefers to call themselves the positive label of ‘contactees’ and sees an alien bouquet of roses. The other group of abducted, taken by aliens, negatively asserts themselves kidnapped as ‘abductees’, and they instead see an open, festering, bleeding wound.”
Two schools of thought…two completely different camps; and with the subject of the paranormal…standard operating procedure!
Whether it be a matter of aliens or demons, the blame for “mysterious” circumstances occurring throughout the world will quite often be blamed upon an alien influence when all else fails. There recently has been speculation that the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 might just be a result of otherworldly tampering. It appears to be, that if it is something we can’t readily explain, let’s grasp at straws and offer explanations beyond our realm of logical reasoning. At least it is for the crowds in the UFO circle. It’s the juice that keeps them going! And never mind that as of March 25, 2014, there is strong evidence that the plane carrying the 239 passengers and flight crew’s final resting place lies within the southern Indian Ocean.
To put the blame on some covert alien counter-intelligence operation is an easy cop-out. We, ourselves, are quite capable of our own pattern of violent tendencies and self destruction. We don’t need any help in that area.
Next in the conclusion: Opposing views for a pure alien experience; the demon crowd have their say, and it’s not pretty; author Whitley Strieber comes over to the dark side…or perhaps was always there from the beginning; and just how does this affect the pure art form of ghost hunting?
