Hi Don, Everyone!

Just because an academic with a so-called 'Wal-Mart' degree from
a Christian founded institution such as Oxford, Harvard or even
the University of Toronto, expresses an opinion on UFOs and
about aliens that conflicts with your personal beliefs is no
reason to get all excited.

The continuing study of UFOs darting through the skies above us
on planet Earth and the many accounts of very human-like
entities associated with these UFOs is NOT proof or even very
compelling evidence for the popular and widely held belief that
our universe must be teaming with extraterrestrial
civilizations, something which we have, so far, failed to
discover. That said, UFOs and their human-like entities are very
compelling evidence for what John Keel and others have called
ultraterrestrials whose origin is not necessarily some distant
world but from our realm of reality which is described in much
detail in our historic and religious texts.

Since the so-called ETs look so much like us and know an awful
about us too, why is it so hard to accept the old scientific (or
religious?) views that these ETs are higher dimensional beings,
including time travellers, that co-exist with us here?

Our 21st century thinking has become too restricted and we may
never come to a true understanding about UFOs and the advanced
intelligences associated with them without reconsidering what
the Bible and the Church Fathers had to say on this subject.
Don't let different terminology such as angels and demons with
the biases and preconceptions that come with these names divert
us from our search for the truth. Maybe we should listen more to
what Orthodox, Muslim, Roman Catholic and other ancient
religions and "mythologies" have to say on this subject on which
we still are in the dark.
