"What the public learns about the [UFO] phenomena comes from that small portion of the facts that has been preselected by believers to promote enthusiastic support fot the extraterrestrial theory." -- Dr. Jacques Vallee.
On the morning of February 8, 1855, an astounded group of villagers in Devon, England
observed a long trail of horse-shoe shaped foot prints in the snow. The townspeople
were afraid to leave their houses at night because they assumed the tracks were made by
During the Black Plague in 14th century Europe, those who died were sometimes
believed to be Vampyres, coming back from the
dead to afflict the living.
For over 200 years in England, thousands of men and
women were found with strange marks on their bodies, mysterious illnesses, or what
appeared to be supernormal abilities. They were sentenced to death by the church for
being witches and making covenants with the devil.
In December of 1997, a 17 year-old boy was brought before a Romanian priest after
coming down with a mysterious illness. The priest performed an exorcism on the youth
believing that his unexplainable condition was caused by a demon.
In January 1998, a New York mother and her older daughter were indicted after
suffocating a younger member of the family during an attempt to exorcise a demon from
the teenage girl.
There are thousands of stories throughout history similar to the affore mentioned ones, all
of which are negative or unexplainable phenomena blamed on evil figures of every
religion in the world. Christians attribute addictions, bad habits, temptations, and illness
to Satan. Pagan cultures have their own evil spirits or angry gods who take the blame.
However, others who deem the belief in God or Satan as unscientific will readily
ignore the fundamental laws of physics, biology, psychology, logic, etc. and blame
negative paranormal phenomena on extraterrestrial beings from other
Many UFO believers blame cattle mutilations, crop circles, abduction
experiences, some nightmares, electronic disturbances, strange creatures such as Mothman and the Chupacabra, even some human
disappearances and deaths on sinister gray aliens. If they don't blame the otherworldly,
governments often take the blame. Is this the roll of the extraterrestrial in today's society - the evil devil tormenting
There is often a direct link from the UFO phenomena to the occult. They appear to
coincide and are similar in many aspects. Some believe that alien beings are actually
demons, while the Skeptic's Dictionary makes a great observation suggesting that aliens have
taken over the Devil's roll. What do you think? Please read the following statements from Ufologists and paranormal researchers:
JOHN A. KEEL - Author of "Mothman Prophesies" and other books on UFO
"The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the
age-old demonological phenomena."
RAYMOND FOWLER - Author of 5 books on UFOs.
"I [have] watched in dismay as a number of respected UFO researchers moved from a
physical to a parapsychological interpretation of the bizarre UFO phenomena... Now, I
am being forced to reexamine the UFO phenomena in light of its apparent paraphysical
DR. JACQUES VALLEE - Prominent UFO researcher.
"We are dealing with a yet unrecognized level of consciousness, independent of man but
closely linked to the earth...I do not believe anymore that UFOs are simply the spacecraft
of some race of extraterrestrial visitors. This notion is too simplistic to explain their
appearance, the frequency of their manifestations throughout recorded history, and the
structure of the information exchanged with them during contact."
"an impressive parallel can be made between UFO occupants and and the popular
conception of demons."
"The 'medical examination' to which abductees are said to be subject, 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 or biological 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
LYNN E. CATOE - Senior bibliographer for publicaton listing over 400 pages
of UFO literature in 1969.
"A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the
metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and
invisible entities as well as phenomena like poltergeist manifestations and "possession".
Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged
incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic
DR. PIERRE GUERIN - Scientist with the French National Council for
"[UFO] behavior is more akin to magic than to physics as we know it."
"...the modern UFOnauts and demons of past days are probably identical."
TREVOR JAMES - UFO researcher.
"A working knowledge of occult science...is indispensable to UFO investigations."
