God, Aliens And Strippers
Scott Tracey
Guelph Mercury

I have seen, at least once in person and more recently on an
amateur videotape, UFOs.

I won't go so far as to suggest I've seen spaceships, but they
certainly were, in the truest sense, unidentified flying
objects.

When I was about 12, my family was driving in two vehicles along
the South Service Road, adjacent to the QEW, near Grimsby. My
dad, who was driving our car, and my uncle, who was leading in
his own car, both suddenly pulled over to the shoulder at the
same time. We all got out to look at this weird round thing
floating in the clear blue sky.

It seemed to hover silently in one place east of us, then
quickly zipped over where we were standing and then stopped and
appeared to hover again to our west. After several seconds, it
sped away northbound toward Lake Ontario and like that, it was
gone. Even then, I knew it was no plane or helicopter, and more
than a quarter-century later I still remember the encounter
vividly.

My next experience with an unidentified flying object came about
a decade ago. I was working in our Fergus bureau when I got a
call from a farmer up near Arthur, telling me about this strange
thing that had flown over his fields a day earlier. It was a
slow summer day, so I took a drive up to see what he had.

His jerky video depicted a pipe-shaped, black or dark grey
object against a clear blue sky. The object seemed to be flying
horizontally, then would suddenly switch its position so it
appeared to be flying on one end, then would lean over at a
roughly 45-degree angle, then back to horizontal and so on, all
the while never changing its apparent flight path, before
quickly disappearing.

I don't really know what to make of either incident, but I noted
with some interest they are not unlike some of the accounts
contained in approximately 1,000 pages of formerly classified
UFO documents released this week by Britain's National Archives.

I do, however, think we would have to be pretty naive to believe
that of the approximately 300 known planets, this tiny blue dot
is the only one with life on it.

Even the Vatican's chief astronomer -- yes, the Vatican has a
chief astronomer -- conceded recently there could be intelligent
life on other planets, noting to suggest otherwise would be to
put limits on God's "creative freedom."

So the obvious issue is this: How to reconcile witness reports
of eight-foot-tall, skinny, green-skinned, bulbous-headed aliens
with the notion of "created in His image."

Speaking of clumsy segues...
