SIGHTING : THE CAUSE Fuzzy Logic, Alien Graves, and Chinese Lanterns
Two objects caught on video darting in front of a giant Arizona sandstorm have created a new keen interest in UFO’s on the Internet. I watched the footage after a long hot day at the zoo and I admit I was spooked by what looked like to saucer like craft moving out of the huge cloud of dust. They looked very much like the classic UFOs seen in other footage.
The unidentified flying objects were seen in the giant storm, which is called a haboob, near Mesa July 6, 2011. One of the objects appears to grow, change its shape and then glow. Some have mentioned reports that similar flashing lights and objects in the sky were observed around the time of the tsunami and earthquake in Japan.
While the sandstorm orbs appeared on CNN – there was no explanation for the saucers. Later though it is being said that the lights were actually Southwest airlines planes.
Meanwhile elsewhere in the world Fortean times reported that there was a mass grave found in Africa where the skeletal remains were not at all conventional.
A team of anthropologists found a mysterious burial in the jungle near the city of Kigali Rwanda (Central Africa). The remains belong to gigantic creatures that bear little resemblance to humans.
Head of research group believes that they could be visitors from another planet who died as a result of a catastrophe.
According to the scientists, they were buried at least 500 years ago. At first, researchers thought that they came across the remains of ancient settlements, but no signs of human life have been found nearby. The 40 communal graves had approximately 200 bodies in them, all perfectly preserved. The creatures were tall – approximately 7 feet. Their heads were disproportionately large and they had no mouth, nose or eyes. The anthropologists believe that the creatures were members of an alien landing, possibly destroyed by some terrestrial virus to which they had no immunity.
However, no traces of the landing of the spacecraft or its fragments were discovered.
I have been investigating all things paranormal for going on 17 years and I can honestly say that the paranormal seems to be set on “high” as more and more people feel that they are in the midst of something peculiar. While video after video shows up on You Tube, or on the evening news, there are people who will do their best to try and take the wind out of a sighting by dismissing it as fake.
I remember how the year started off with some remarkable UFO sightings that seemed to be similar. There were red lights in formation and another light that lowers from the red light array. These similar UFO events were recorded in Christchurch, Moscow, Chicago, Cairo, Jerusalem and Utah Then there were the UFOS that appeared over Russia and New Zealand that appeared to be blue vortices swirling and dropping red drone objects to the ground.
The UFO’s over Israel were debunked even though they mimicked the same sightings all over the world. It was after this that more and more similar sightings were reported and either the online skeptics were asleep at the wheel or these cases were ignored because they weren’t as hyped.
The UFO phenomenon has been one of the most intriguing topics of 2011. While Ground Zero Radio has been connected to UFO style stories, the truth is that we have increased UFO coverage because of the mountain of stories that have been reported in the first six months of 2011.
It doesn’t look like it is letting up any time soon as Portland Oregon seems to be having the same UFO flap that it experienced 65 years ago in 1947. My show was interrupted days before the 4th of July with reports of UFO’s, videos that were sent to document the sighting, interesting photographs and another video of a flashing red light hovering over Forest Grove Oregon.
On June 24th 1947 the word flying saucer was coined by journalists who were reporting an odd story about Kenneth Arnold who while flying his plane over Washington spotted a boomerang shaped craft that seemed to skip across the air as a “saucer would skip across water.” These unknown craft were mirror bright and traveled at fast speeds, faster than any jet that would eventually show up in the skies many years later.
The “flying saucers” had arrived only because the media said so. For many years the balls of light and the strange aircraft had been seen and many theories as to what they were crept into the pulp novels of the day.
The Flying Saucer was most definitely a media creation; a marketing label developed to sell newspapers. It would become a word that not only was used to support the believers and the witnesses but it also was used in a derisive manner.
Much like the word UFO has been used to either support or taint a story about aircraft of unknown origin today. The irony is that the Military created that terminology.
The media was beginning to pay attention to “saucer hysteria” as soon as the suggestion was made. This may be the reason why we may never hear the true stories of what was really happening in an era that was just recovering from a major World War and preparing for several other smaller wars yet to come.
One of the unfortunate repercussions of media coverage of these events in 1947 was that reporters were printing stories that pigeon holed these anomalous events into the realms of pulp science fiction.
It was a clever way in which every anomaly could be conveniently classified and labeled as a “flying saucer” and eventually debunked as “Venus” or a “weather balloon.” During this time, there could have been a number of significant events taking place that could very well have been glossed over or made to look like figments of an overactive imagination. That is why witness testimonies are vital to cases that over the years have become embellished or thrust into the communal mythology.
As time goes on there are a lot of people who feel that they are too sophisticated to allow themselves that a phenomenon as old as recorded history can be happening in our skies. The more you study the reports of these UFO’s the more you realize that they are pretext to a global crisis.
Not only is the sighting of these craft a precursor to possible military movements, it also can be a monitor for the mental health and sanity of the consensus that fears the phantom enemy outside the confines of their control.
If there are aliens piloting these craft we have another problem entirely. All of the UFO possibilities from fakes to alien spacecraft illustrate some very interesting psychological markers that indicate an apocalyptic mind set.
The apocalyptic mind set is met with the debunking from 20th century thinkers that seem to be stuck in the past assuming that any and all sightings are being presumed extra-terrestrial when there are several facts about unconventional craft being talked about on the History channel. They forget that there are people out there that know what satellites and space stations look like, they trace sky movements, and really want a logical explanation. I would love to see a skeptic argue in 21st century thought with an open mind looking for patterns, analyzing comparative stories and footage, this way we could shed some light on what science could be behind this – instead of dismissing it as CGI, swamp gas, or weather balloons.
It would be refreshing for a skeptic to point out the use of Chinese lanterns, instead of giving us blow by blow of computer programs that can create a group of lights in formation.
There doesn’t seem to be any skepticism giving us UFO information that point to terrestrial craft in use by governments. There is an only hostile attack on anyone coming forward with footage or anything that blurs across their cameras.
I want to also point out that skeptics seldom give smoking gun evidence against a non terrestrial UFO’s in footage – only opinions on why they do not think the UFOS are alien in nature.
The term “flying saucer” evolved in the communal mythology to be UFO, a term that originally meant Unidentified Flying Object. But now it seems to be stuck as a marketing label on everything mysterious which includes, the Chupacabra, crop circles, mutilated cattle, Men in Black, government conspiracies, alien abductions, genetic manipulation, and everything else that seems to have no definitive answer. All of those topics have been shown to be hoaxes and yet the stories and sightings continue.
Not one skeptic can take out an entire mystery that seems to get more fascinating all over the world.
