A curious circular object shown on a French counter that was minted between 1656 - 1680 has sparked the interest of some UFO enthusiasts, who claim that the image is undoubtable proof of UFO sightings from the time.
For example, Scott C. Waring, the owner of UFO Sightings Daily writes on his website that the counter “is absolute proof that in the 1600s the French witnessed enough UFO sightings to decide to put some of what they saw on coins.”
The counter in question is a French jeton, also known as a Reckoning Counter, which York Coins explains was “widely used in the medieval world as an aid in performing calculations by merchants and royal officials. The counters were placed upon a checkered board or reckoning table to represent amounts or tallies in complex calculations. The word jeton comes from the French verb jeter, to cast.”
Woodcut of people at a calculation table (probably from Strasbourg), where jetons would have been used.
Waring describes the appearance of the counter on his website, saying:
It is about the size of a U.S. quarter-dollar and similar to thousands of other jetons with different religious and educational designs that were produced and used in Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. It appears to commemorate a UFO sighting of a wheel like object. Some researchers feel it represents the Biblical Ezekiel's wheel. The Latin inscription 'OPPORTUNUS ADEST' translates as 'It is here at an opportune time.

- Psychics are Their Only Enemies & My Personal UFO Sightings
The two sides of the jeton, one with the circular image in the sky and the other with a plant and rain. ( Scott C. Waring )
Ezekiel’s wheel is one of the most cited examples of UFO evidence in the Bible . One passage describes the appearance of the “wheels”, saying that “They sparkled like chrysolite, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel." (Ezekiel 1:16)
The Chicago Coin Club emphasizes that the images shown on the counters were chosen with a specific reasoning behind them and were once important tools for propaganda. They write:
According to medieval taste, they were always decorated. These decorations always had a purpose, sometimes religious, but usually related to the user or the principal. In the 16th century, jetons were mostly used to propagate political messages and to glorify the deeds of the ruler. There was such a great need to make propaganda through jetons that they continued to be struck long after jetons ceased to be used as counters. In France and in the Netherlands this new image of the jeton began about the end of the 16th century.

The Daily Mail reports that the curious counter “has spurred theories dating back decades.” Some of the other explanations for the image have been a drifting mushroom or flower, or a shield.

According to The Daily Mail, a comparable token from 1648 also depicts a circular object similar to the one Waring shows on his website. This too has been argued by some people to represent a UFO sighting. However, others say that the image is a shield with arrows pointing towards it.

Experts say that the images on jetons were chosen with a purpose, so what is the image on the French counter? Is it a UFO, a shield, a flower, or a symbolic representation of something else?

During World War I, the British steamer Iberian was cruising off the coast of Ireland when it was attacked by the German submarine U-28 (pictured above right). The Iberian tried to flee, but U-28 pursued, firing shells and torpedoes. After taking two direct hits, the Iberian tipped up and sank with her bow in the air.
The sinking would be all but forgotten today if not for an article the U-28&lsquos captain, Baron von Forstner, wrote for a German newspaper in 1933. In the Baron&rsquos account, he stood on the submarine&rsquos conning tower and watched the steamer sink. About 25 seconds after it disappeared beneath the surface, there was a large explosion, possibly caused by the ship&rsquos boiler detonating. The blast threw a mysterious sea creature clear out of the water. &ldquoThe animal was about 20 meters [65 ft] long and crocodile-like in shape, with pairs of strong front and hind legs adapted for swimming, and a long head that tapered towards the nose.&rdquo According to the Baron, the creature was visible for about &ldquo10 to 15 seconds at a distance of about 150 to 100 meters (500 ft) in bright sunshine.&rdquo
The Belgian zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans, who coined the term &ldquocryptozoology&rdquo and produced an influential book on sea serpents, considered the U-28 sighting one of the four most reliable in history. The incident was especially interesting since the explosion flung the animal all the way out of the water, allowing the Baron to see its entire body. Based on his description, Heuvelmans speculated that the creature might have been a surviving species of Thalattosuchia, a genus of giant sea crocodiles from the time of the dinosaurs.
Despite Heuvelmans&rsquo assesment, skeptics suggest that the Baron might have made the whole story up. According to his account, seven other crew members witnessed the creature. Unfortunately, six died during the war, presumably when the U-28 was sunk in 1917 (the most common story is that another sinking ship exploded, hurling a burning truck straight onto the submarine). The only surviving witness was the sub&rsquos cook, Robert Maas, who never wrote about the incident, leaving the story to rely on von Forstner&rsquos account alone. Additionally, the 61 survivors of the Iberian apparently didn&rsquot see the creature. In fairness, they might have been a little busy at the time.

Secret UFO Archives Opened
By The Copenhagen Post
The Danish Air Force has opened its UFO archives, providing information on over 15,000 reported extraterrestrial sightings to the public
UFO archives are now readily available to the public, detailing sightings from over the last 30 years. The Danish Air Force published the archive online yesterday because it felt that ‘there was nothing secret in the files’.
The Air Force said that most of the sightings remained ‘unidentified’ because the details were not precise enough. However, some of the reports contained enough description to rule out the UFOs as aircraft, weather phenomenon or paper lanterns.
Not all of the sightings were centred over Denmark and one event over Greenland is attracting attention.
On the 5 January, 1981 at 12:50 a flaming, square disc was seen approximately 45 degrees over the frozen land near Thule Air Base. It then vanished as suddenly as it had appeared.
Coincidentally, radar stations at the American base recorded an unidentified flying object on its radar at 12:50.
Air Force Captain Thomas Petersen, who has an extensive knowledge of the files, commented that any unresolved sightings are handed over to the Scandinavian UFO Centre, if they request it.
He added that the Air Force's main mission was to defend Denmark against threat, 'and UFOs are not a known threat'.
NASA Agent Spills UFO Beans
A VETERAN NASA agent who says he processed the real X-Files has come clean with the inside story on the Roswell aliens.
Joseph Richard Gutheinz Jr, a practising criminal lawyer and decorated former NASA special agent, spoke out in defence of UFO hacker Gary Mckinnon last week. Having also spent the last four years on the Texas Criminal Justice Advisory Committee on Medical and Mental Impairments, he felt qualified to call on the US government to cease its unfair hounding of the UFO hacker.
But Gutheinz, it turns out, is himself a poster-boy for UFO conspiracists, just like McKinnon: he is famous for telling a mysterious tale of dead Roswell aliens being kept in Building 265 at NASA's Johnson Space Centre where he used to work in Houston, and of a sinister government cover up.
Gutheinz led a team of agents in NASA's Office of the Inspector General (OIG). They worked from a secret bunker with grass and trees covering it. It had cypher doors leading to secluded rooms furnished with nothing but a desk, a lamp and a single telephone. Beyond the steel doors to the outside world, astronauts were training for Space Shuttle missions.
"It was kind of a spooky building. People always wondered what went on there," Gutheinz told The Inquirer. "Except for Mission Control, it was the most highly secured building at Johnson Space Centre."
The OIG agents were so secret that even NASA wasn't allowed to know what they were investigating. "The joke at NASA OIG is that whoever was the producer of the X-Files picked the wrong agency, because nobody calls the FBI. They don't trust the FBI. What they do if they think they've been abducted or something like that, they used to call the criminal investigators at NASA, which is the Office of the Inspector General.
"As a senior special agent I used to get these calls on a regular basis where somebody says I've been abducted, I've got a chip in my brain, there's somebody following me around," he said.
"It's one of the things that interested me about the Gary McKinnon story because here's a guy who really thinks there's UFOs, who's going the extra step to prove it. I understood that, because I had dealt with so many of those individuals in the past," Gutheinz added.
The most prominent of those people was Jerry Alan Whittredge, who impersonated an astronaut and thought he was a CIA assassin. He blagged his way into Mission Control, was given Space Shuttle specifications and permission to fly jets. "That was a lot of the people that we used to get calls from," said Gutheinz.
OIG agents were involved in the seven-agency investigation that caught Gary McKinnon snooping around their systems for evidence of captured UFO technology. Typically, the OIG roots out internal fraud at NASA. That's why they have to be secret. What they don't do is interrogate aliens.
"Just so you know, so we are totally clear," said Gutheinz. "You can dig all over the place - there is no ET at NASA."
But it was Gutheinz who in the February/March 2005 edition of UFO Magazine wrote how he had been abducted by agents even more secret than his own how, being unable to account for whole days, with only vague memories of brain chips, he stumbled across the desert outpost in New Mexico where the Roswell aliens had been autopsied and a terrible accident had turned NASA personnel to dust in their own biological suits.
"I had taken complaints from people who believed the government had placed transmitter/receivers in their brains before, and I had always assumed they were schizophrenics," wrote Gutheinz. "Even today I know many people who believe this happened to them probably are schizophrenics, but now I know some are telling the truth?"
But Gutheinz was only kidding. He wrote the story for fun. He now finds it embarrassing. His children and students take the mickey out of him. His wife thinks he'll never live it down. And it was just the transcript of a vivid nightmare that had merged his life in a secret NASA bunker with the calls he would get from conspiracy theorists. Just a transcript, cheekily submitted to a UFO Magazine with an introduction that asked, are these real memories or was it just a dream?
"I thought it was a great idea when I wrote it, because I understood it. But it was sort of like Andy Kaufman. His humour - you were the only one who got it some of the time. I got it when I wrote the thing. I thought it was novel," said Gutheinz.
The magazine wrote it up under the headline 'Alien Autopsy Expose - He knows where NASA hid the bodies'.
A self-confessed maverick, Guntheinz has a track record in causing mischief. What do you think he did with those calls he got about alien abduction at NASA?
"I hate to say it, but when I had a rascal instinct, I would find somebody at the FBI didn't like, and I would give them that phone number and have them call the FBI," confessed Gutheinz.
Won't somebody please come forward and reassure us that there really are aliens? That this fragile, lonely planet isn't all we have? Perhaps take some comfort here: the Disclosure Project, the UFO group that inspired McKinnon to hack into NASA systems in 2001, will tell us what we want to know. They only ask for money first.
Oh my gosh… they have to suppress this location… the Islamic fanatic extremists go and destroy everything like this… all in the name of their evil “god” They have already destroyed SO many antiquities. It’s just evil.
Don’t worry Deb Egypt has sold on all the records found to the USA, however there are 3 halls of records around the world so more to come
can you kindly elaborate for me please as I’m trying to gather evidence on this subject.
Sorry Deb I can’t to be honest as it’s an Edgar Casey prediction so only he knows and he’s dead I’m sure they will all come to light though at some stage and we can look forward to them if they are not GIVEN AWAY to the USA or Smithsonian Museum the evil ones
By your awful penmanship, punctuation, and actual use of the word, “conspiracy” when referring to a scientific discovery concerning something like this, especially when the speculation of it possibly being the Hall of Records is nothing more than mere speculation, I can tell you lack proper education and intelligence… If your brain was capable of common reasoning and logic you would have pieced together by the end of the article that with all of the government and archaeological experts refraining other bodies from gaining access to these newly excavated areas, this article has provided as much imformation as any other article could at the time of it being originally written. Please refrain from regurgitating this awful nonsense on other informative and interesting articles in the future. Please!
Cough splutter, you are clearly projecting your fantasy upon history and reducing the Science of archaeology to a nonsense. Show me the science and I am in. Speculation is however just that- projection.
You make absolutely no sense. Go ahead, keep reinforcing the statement I made previously when pointing out your lack of intelligence. You can’t even properly piece together the words in which you know no meaning.
Cough, sputter* science* moron!
LOL, wow. What was that guys problem. haha
I didn’t find the piece credible ffs that is the problem is that so strange ? The internets are awash with assumptions and leaps of reason claiming this and that mythical truth, debunking god knows what, but without any substance. I would love the mythical hall of records to have been discovered really I would, but guess what .. here we are again a bold claim then silence, no follow up, no peer reviewed science or real archeology anywhere to be witnessed. Hence I counter the claim only to be called a moron haha I love the internet it can be highly entertaining.
Scientific evidence? I don’t understand why there’s two types of people who either debunk things like this or accept the notion that this is “probably” true. No scientific evidence is even allowed to be conducted here dude….the hall of records is more of an allegory than a myth. This is much more than a conspiracy. Based on actual findings of the Labyrinth, an underground city. The point is the library exists and is confirmed by officials and this is what most closely matches the Hall Of Records if you even know what it is…
the Egyptian government has blocked investigations around what is said to be the site of the Hall of Records. This is a fact. Why do you think that is?Its self explanatory
Why look for the answers of the past in Egypt, why not open the catacombs under the Vatican (Babylon)
haha you lap it up sir, calling me a moron genius, but there is zero science on display in this assumption and therefore your rather rude and ranting response does nothing to further the actual claim that something mythical has been discovered. Where is the science to back up this piece . The Mythical hall of records remains just that a myth at this point. You appear angry and aggressive towards any position that is not in sympathy with your own grasping reality. Until there is science this is just another assumption for the conspiracy types to latch onto and rant about. You display classic straw man and odhominem responses, whilst singularly avoiding any depth or argument related to the claim, show me the science please you angry weird person,
Accepted history, including archaeology, is awash with an admixture of fact and fiction, truth and error, so I would be careful in daring to pronounce anything that doesn’t agree with the a cepted and official line as nonsense. You instead, rather than pompously promoting the astuteness and unalloyed accuracy of s ience, show me real science – not merely scientific declarations of which may or maynot be true. The science- minded project their own fallacies, arrogance and insecurities relative to alternative postulations, speculations and considerations. The scientific method is as much compounded of speculation as anyother presentment, regardless of that which the scientific dogmatists assert to the contrary. The dogmatism of science is as much prominent as the dogmatism of anyother field of human endeavour. Just because it’s a modern concept, theory, hypothesis, or whatever one prefers to call it, doesn’t of itself automatically make it correct. Science, let us not forget, can’t even agree with itself on almost eveything it involves itself in. Thos bei g so, science has no right to claim either superiority or exactness.
And yet the best system we have is the method Science employs, of course it is not 100% correct in all its findings and assumptions, BUT here we are on the internets, engines combust, Helicopters fly and antibiotics cure infections. Archaeology tries its best to deduce from evidence a narrative. Speculation and grasping at straws helped no one ever deliver a solid theory and explanation.
Unfortunately your assertion is an assumption and one made from a point of ignorance, for the scientific method as you and most of humanity knows of it and understands it is neither the best system nor the best system humanity currently possesses.
You speak of speculation and grasping at straws, well science is good at that too. Quite a few years ago now I attended an international archaeological conference sponsored by the University of Liege, Belgium, the university of Tasmania and the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens, and a variety of conceptual viewpoints were presented by the then world’s supposed experts in Aegean bronze age archaeology.
You likewise mention that the scientific method is not 100% accurate. This is a given. Nonetheless, those immersed in their version of science and worldly authority are the first to point the finger of scorn at any other area of human knowledge and endeavour it blindly and fanatically doesn’t accept and concur with. Dogma in science is as prevalent as it is in any other human activity.
Oh dear lord, so has the hall of records been found, discovered or not . And what would it take in terms of reliable trustworthy evidence peer reviewed to confirm this .. Science in its core system is just a search for verifiable facts and solutions. Proof, testing, reviewing and presenting for cross checking. Archaeology is one of the great Scientific endeavours, you are belittling an entire branch of studious careful painstaking work by thousands of dedicated and qualified individuals. What proof can you present that there are ‘secret’ ‘hidden’ civilisations or pre history activities that refute the current timeline of human progression . Science is the best system we have to encounter the world around us or the internet would not function . What exactly is your point or position you make no sense .. if you have information that is verified please I’d love to read it as I love all things History and Archaeological, please go ahead present .. I am reacting to the piece presented above, it was posted, I am asking for additional evidence is all ….
Whether it is the purported Hall of Records or not is open for dispute, however your slant on it is indicative of pseudo-science rather than real science based around an unbiased perspective and eventually perchance generally irrefutable and substantive proof from evidence – not a blind and fanatical refutation or acceptance. With all due respect to you, your concept of science is disturbing to say the least and is indeed a concept that is unfortunately widely held. For your viewpoint is as much non-evidence based as you assert the contrary viewpoint to be.
Moreover, you have the misfortune to consider yourself intelligent. Read the applicable works of Sir Francis Bacon and properly absorb his delineation of the Idola Mentis (Idols of the Mind), which are the errors in thinking and approach to knowledge that are tightly held to by most of humanity. I, therefore, ask for your evidence instead of scientific speculation presented as fact.
You assert the ridiculous notion that you ‘love all things history and Archaeological”, but your viewpoint is based in the main on scientific interpretation and speculation. History is continually being rewritten and past beliefs discarded by your much vaunted authorities.
There is no possible so-called evidence of which anyone could provide that would satisfy your preconceived ideas. Your approach and the adopted pseudo-intellectualistic stance precludes anyone who actually knows, and is in possession of the facts you claim to desire, to communicate them to you. humble yourself before the seat of real knowledge and perhaps it will be opened to you.
you do speak a load of nonsense (and very simplistic obvious nonsense at that), the hall of records could easily be proven to exist please stick to the subject. Of course science is continually adapting and developing its theories and concepts based on new verified information and discovery. I have no notions about the limits of science being anything but an attempt to observe and discover the world around us by fact checking and testing theory. I am simply saying this kind of article panders to the emotions and presents nothing of any depth. If they can unearth this mythical hall then go ahead, otherwise its babble … babble .. does this article present some facts or not .. does it advance the serious efforts of Archaeologists . Not by a single jot.
So much for your intelligence and your humanity. Besides, your stance and claims changes like the proverbial wind, which is a particular trait of pseudo-intellectuals and troublemakers.
if you say so, but I am still not slightly more informed as to what the aim of this article actual was … ‘The Discovery of the century’ hahahahaha
You seem to be unusually obsessed with that thought and statement, even though I have specifically posited that it is not the case. Your obsession with the purported superiority of science is a delusion held by most, if not all, science fanatics and extremists. Arguing for the sake of arguing is a tool utilised by the pseudo-intellectualist and fanatical adherent to a specific methodology.
Archaeology doesn’t try its best to “deduce from evidence”, what it does is interpret from observation and experiment and build a hypothesis around that interpretation. It doesn’t stop there, though, as the resting on preconceived ideas (which is exactly what you do) is married to the hypothesis.
The notion of science you’ve adopted for yourself is the unthinking and blind acceptance of a science partially constructed, usurped by the purely materialistically-minded and irrational skeptics without due consideration that science could be far more than this. In other words, the official definition and description of science is not only blurred by a fanatical one-pointed designation, but it is so artificially restricted to that thought form it has no hope of obtaining to its true nature until that contrivance is overcome. People like you accept the touted line without due thought and consideration. Real science is vastly different and far superior to that which I’d designate as worldly or materialistically-contrived human science. Because of this, science has lost a lot of its potential and lustre. The dogmatists and unthinking zombies in science and those of a similar nature interested in science have effectively destroyed the overall capability of science through trying to force it to adhere to human concepts. Proceeding this way, science, like any other human endeavour, is done an unbelievably sorrowful disservice.
You are also obsessed with speculation as it is applied to whatever you don’t believe in and accept. this likewise distorts your vision, your perception and your conception. There is little solid theory in theoretical science. Practical science usually has a slightly increased level of solid theory behind it, but even then the attempt to enlarge on that solid base through fanciful interpretations has it not only grasping at straws and indulging itself in speculation but making the same mistakes as you so fanatically and blindly accuse everyone else of doing who doesn’t accept your particular version of science and the scientific method. I have noticed in your mistaken attempt at intellectual posturing, you ignore the salient points proffered by another and immediately go on your pseudo-intellectualistic rant. it is no point, therefore, for me to elucidate on any substantive point anent that which I could convey and explain further that which I mean by refuting your contention relative to the accepted and touted definition and procedures of science as the world currently knows and understands it. Your mind could not grasp it nor would you give it sufficient time to digest it. You need to understand first that the argument from authority (argumentum ad verecundiam) is insufficient to the cause and is in many respects based around a false sense of acceptability – a flagrant error that science itself consistently indulges in as it seeks to impel humanity to blindly accept its authority as though its virtually absolute.
Clickbait articles huh? I believe your profile image says all I need to now about you. Calling this a conspiracy or clickbait articles makes you look like a complete fool, due to the fact that there’s enough evidence (which you obviously cannot understand) that this does exist. Do you even realize how well documented this discovery actually is? Do me a favor and avoid Ancient Code in the future. Internet trolls are not welcome here.
I cannot understand why I take my time to respond to such idiotic comments in the first place… Uh!
What’s the reason behind Egypt not allowing more research into this place? Why won’t Egypt allow research under the sphinx? Why does Egypt deny and refuse to accept any modern views that contradict their narrative of the past? I wonder who is really in charge?
Once again its all about money, Egyptians who want to make money and those who don’t. I am
sure Zahi Hawass has a lot to do with! That ol fart won’t let anyone in he doesn’t trust.
All these BS conspiracies. Americans and Egyptian government don’t want to reveal the truth? Hmm..i wonder why. They’re probably afraid that the TRUTH will hurt their races and that Jesus is not white lol. So, if society are suppress from finding out the TRUTH, they continue to live a better lives based on color of their skins and also the Jewish people being God’s children is probably false as well. Jerusalem is not a race or a country but misinterpret in order for a race to gain.

What to Expect and conclude from the UFO report
There may not be a single explanation for all UFO/UAP observations. Therefore, we should not leap to any conclusions when the findings of the report are made public. Nevertheless, the upcoming Pentagon UFO report on June 25, 2021, would be beneficial if the data that informed it are made publicly available to look at this enigmatic phenomenon and hopefully reach a scientific consensus on the nature of the unexplained events. Otherwise, there will always be conspiracy theories shrouding and inhibiting a proper scientific investigation of UAPs.
What are the best resources for the upcoming UAP investigation report on June 25, 2021?
This article will go through my opinion the three most reliable and potential best sources for the evidence behind the enigmatic UAP phenomenon. The director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the secretary of defense have just a couple of weeks to provide armed services committees and the congressional intelligence and with an unclassified report about UAP or “unidentified aerial phenomena.” The report is due on June 25, 2021.
The DNI produces the President’s Daily Brief (PDB), a top-secret document including intelligence from all the Intelligence Community agencies, given each morning to the president. And according to the Senate intelligence committee’s directive, the upcoming UAP report must contain detailed analyses of UFO data and intelligence collected by the Office of Naval Intelligence, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, and the FBI.
It must also describe in detail “an interagency process for ensuring timely data collection and centralized analysis of all unidentified aerial phenomena reporting for the Federal Government” and select an official responsible for that process. Furthermore, the submitted report should be unclassified, though it can and will undoubtedly contain a classified annex.
Top 10 Ancient Aliens Mysteries
Ancient aliens is the idea that aliens visited earth in the past. The idea of ancient aliens is not a new one either. Imagination is one of the most powerful tools in humanity&rsquos evolutionary struggle for survival. As a race, we are hardwired to consider important concepts, such as the creation of life on Earth and the history of people on this planet. At some point, we are all presented with various explanations and theories regarding the expansion of human life on Earth. In the long history of mankind, the majority of these concepts have followed religious teachings, and the power of a spiritual God or Gods. In modern times, many people have come to challenge these claims.
The idea of evolution has been used to describe the gradual change of traits that living organisms undergo over time, which is related to the environment, but it doesn&rsquot explain how the biological cells of human&rsquos first ancestor were spawned. Because of the fact that everyone is interested in the creation of life on Earth, and concurrently we have been taught to believe in the power of religion and the impossibility of alien life, the idea that this article will be examining is controversial. It will be based around some concepts that have been labeled absurd by the scientific community, but let your imagination go, and have some fun with the list.
The idea surrounding ancient aliens is a basic one. It states that the human population was influenced by a group of extraterrestrials that visited Earth in the past. The ancient aliens were directly involved in the evolution of primates, including humans. It has been suggested that this was accomplished by way of genetic engineering, cross-breeding, or a combination of both, ultimately helping in the development of human cultures, technologies and religion. The idea first gained widespread exposure with the 1968 publication of Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Däniken, but the concept has been around since the middle of the 19th century. A common variant of the idea includes proposals that deities from most, if not all, religions, including angels and demons, are actually extraterrestrials whose advanced technologies were taken by people as evidence of a divine status.
This concept is related to the religious practice of a cargo cult, which can be seen in modern day pre-industrial tribal societies. Especially during World War II, when indigenous people were contacted by soldiers with advanced equipment, such as guns and tanks. The cults subsequently attempted to obtain wealth through magic and religious rituals and practices. The ancient alien theory states that extraterrestrials purposely tricked the human population into believing they were Gods, creating religion to help people evolve more efficiently. The Fermi paradox is the apparent contradiction between high estimates of the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations and the lack of evidence for, or contact with, such civilizations.
It has been proposed that, with the current age of the universe and its vast number of stars, if the Earth was typical, extraterrestrial life should be common. In response to this paradox, the zoo hypothesis has been suggested. It states that aliens generally avoid making their presence known to humanity, or avoid exerting an influence on development, somewhat akin to zookeepers observing animals in a zoo, or experimental scientists observing a study of life. Adherents of the hypothesis feel that the Earth and humans are being secretly surveyed using equipment located on Earth, or elsewhere in the Solar System. Charles Fort&rsquos unpublished 1915 manuscript, novel X, describes how Martian beings or Martian events control life on Earth. Fort ultimately burnt the manuscript, but one surviving quote from it is &ldquoThe Earth is a farm. We are someone else&rsquos property.&rdquo

The idea of ancient alien as astronauts has spawned a UFO religion named Raëlism. The Raelian Movement teaches that life on Earth was scientifically created by a species of extraterrestrials, which they call the Elohim. Members of the Elohim appeared human and were mistaken for angels, cherubim or gods. The Bible is full of accounts of angels and demons. The text mentions millions of angels and their experiences on Earth and in the heavens. In Christian tradition, demons are similar to angels. They are spiritual, immutable and immortal. The individual demon owns a specific knowledge, sometimes on only one subject. The apocryphal Book of Enoch recounts that a group of 200 rebellious angels, or Watchers, left heaven and came down to Earth to marry human women and have children with them.
The Quran depicts a story of angels that are given minds of their own, found in verse [2:34]. One of the angels was Iblis (Satan/Lucifer), who rebelled and was therefore banished on earth to create mischief amongst mankind. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, angels were all created as good beings, but some decided to become evil. It was written that angels do not need faith as they already have the knowledge of celestial things, which means that their action constitutes unforgivable sin. The idea of alien intervention on Earth can be found in the modern religious philosophy of Thelema. Thelema was developed by the early 20th century British writer, Aleister Crowley.
Crowley&rsquos system of Thelema begins with The Book of the Law, which he claims was a direct dictation from an entity named Aiwass. Crowley later identified Aiwass as his own Holy Guardian Angel. The religion is founded upon the idea that the 20th century marked the beginning of the Aeon of Horus, in which a new ethical code would be followed &ldquoDo what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.&rdquo The famed American rocket propulsion researcher, Jack Parsons, was one of the first Americans to take a keen interest in the writings of Aleister Crowley. Parsons research into rocket propulsion was some of the earliest in United States history. His pioneering work in the development of solid fuel, and the invention of Jet-fuel Assisted Take Off units for aircraft was of great importance to the start of humanity&rsquos space age. The work of Parsons and his peers helped people usher in the age of space travel. Jack Parsons was largely self-educated.
The extraterrestrial hypothesis is the theory that some unidentified flying objects (UFOs) are best explained as being extraterrestrial life or non-human aliens from other planets. The idea sounds simple to modern day humans, but it a relatively new concept that originated out of the saucer sightings and close encounters of the 1940s-1960s. Thousands of UFO sightings have been reported in the last 50 years, and one of the emerging themes in these events is the Men in Black. The Men in Black are men, or aliens, dressed in black suits who have been reported to harass or threaten UFO witnesses to keep them quiet about what they have seen. In most cases, the men claim to be government agents, but it is often suggested that they may be ancient aliens themselves.
People who have reported an encounter with the Men in Black often describe them as men of short stature with a deeply tanned and dark complexion. According to the accounts, Men in Black always seem to have detailed information on the person they contact, as if the individual had been under surveillance for a long period of time. They have been described as seeming confused by the nature of everyday items such as pens, eating utensils or food, as well as using outdated slang. Those who have encountered them say they produce identification, but when verification is later sought, the people described do not exist or have been dead for some time. Another defining characteristic of the Men in Black is wide grins and disconcerting giggles.
The phenomenon has been frequently reported since the 1950s and 1960s, but some researchers, including John Keel and others, have suggested similarities between the Men in Black reports and earlier demonic accounts. Keel suggests that the beings are a modern-day manifestation of the same phenomena that was earlier interpreted as the devil, or encounters with fairies. The term &ldquothe black man&rdquo has been used for centuries in reference to the Devil. In history, the Black Man was often reported as meeting with the accused and having sexual intercourse with them. Old Scratch or Mr. Scratch is another folk name for The Devil that is used in the local legends of New England and pre-Civil War America.
During the Middle Ages, the black man was not a person with African features, but rather a man colored black and dressed in black. In modern times, another phenomenon known as the Grinning Man has become associated with the Men in Black, and various reports of paranormal activity. These creatures are larger and characterized by a wide grinning face. In most cases, people describe a strange sensation of not being able to focus in on the Grinning Man. It has been suggested that the smile is an attempt by the aliens to conform to society and keep humans feeling safe, but in all reports the figure is described as extremely creepy. In the Half-Life series of first-person shooter video games, there is a mysterious character named G-Man that parallels some of the Men in Black descriptions.
During WWII, the term foo fighter was used by Allied aircraft pilots to describe the various UFOs and mysterious aerial phenomena seen in the skies over both the European and Pacific Theater of Operations. In the wake of the war, the world entered an era of substantial achievement and technical advancement. One such example is the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, which is a United States aircraft that was developed in the early 1960s. The SR-71 Blackbird is a strategic reconnaissance aircraft that currently holds the air speed record. In 1903, Wilbur Wright set the aircraft speed record going 6.82 mph (10.98 km/h). In 1976, the SR-71 Blackbird went 2,193.2 mph (3,529.6 km/h). The craft was manned by Eldon W. Joersz during the record flight, but is highly capable of taking off and landing unassisted.
In modern times, organizations have been developed, such as the Disclosure Project, which have alleged the existence of a world government cover-up of information relating to unidentified flying objects and alien encounters. People argue that the technical advancements humans have experienced since WWII have been achieved with the help of extraterrestrial life and equipment. Proponents of the ancient aliens theory have suggested that the development of nuclear weapons sparked an increased interest in humanity&rsquos evolutionary path, ultimately leading to an era of mass abductions and close encounters. Some others point to the current global climate disruption and apocalypse predictions, identifying them as a precursor for the secret extraterrestrial involvement and intervention on Earth, ensuring the survival of life.
Angel hair is a substance that is said to be dispersed from UFOs as they fly overhead. It has been described as being like a cobweb or a jelly. Angel hair has been reported at sightings of the Virgin Mary. This fact has intrigued ancient alien believers, and has been used as a possible indication of extraterrestrial influence at reported sightings of the Virgin Mary and Jesus. Historical reports of angel hair show that the substance disintegrates, or evaporates, within a short time of forming. One publicized theory of UFO believers is that the substance is &ldquoionized air sleeting off an electromagnetic field&rdquo that surrounds a craft. The most reported incident of angel hair occurred in Oloron, France, in 1952. The event was characterized by a large amount of unexplained aircraft sightings.
On November 2, 1959, in the Portuguese city of Évora, angel hair was collected and analyzed by armed forces technicians and scientists of the University of Lisbon. Conclusions stated that the substance was so advanced that it could be a single-celled organism of some kind, a vegetable product, not animal. People have connected references in the Bible to the phenomenon of angel hair. Pixie dust is said to be related. Beginning in the 14th century, humans began to mention a gelatinous substance named star jelly. Star jelly is described as a translucent or grayish white gelatin, which tends to evaporate shortly after falling. In the past, the substance was connected with meteor showers. Angel grass is a related phenomenon that occurs when short metallic threads fall to the ground in intertwined loosed masses. However, angel grass is an explained occurrence and comes from certain military aircraft. It is a type of Chaff, used as a radar counter-measure.
Greys are a proposed alien species that is most widely associated with the alien abduction phenomenon. It has been alleged that Greys are intelligent extraterrestrials who visit Earth and secretly perform medical experiments on humans. Paranormal claims surrounding the Greys are different in many ways, including their nature, moral dispositions, intentions and physical appearances, some having a different skin color. A composite description derived from overlap claims would have Greys as small bodied, sexless beings with smooth grey skin, an enlarged head and large eyes. They are described as humanoid beings that possess reduced forms of, or a completely lack of, external human organs such as noses, ears or sex organs.
Their bodies are usually depicted as being elongated, having a small chest, and lacking in muscular definition. According to a 1995 study among reports of alien encounters, Greys make up approximately 50% in Australia, 43% in the United States, 90% in Canada, 67% in Brazil, 20% in Continental Europe, and around 12% in Great Britain. It has been proposed that the home planet of these beings is located in the Zeta Reticuli star system. Greys are therefore sometimes known as Zeta Reticulans. People have reported two distinct groups of Greys, with one being much taller. This had led to the suggestion that the smaller Greys are not biologically alive, but instead an artificially constructed robot or cyborg servant.
People have described the Greys as staring into their eyes when conducting mental procedures. This staring, which is performed directly in your face, is claimed to induce hallucinogenic states or directly provoke different emotions. According to English reproductive biologist Jack Cohen, the typical image of a Grey, given that it would have evolved on a world with different environmental and ecological conditions from Earth, is too physiologically similar to a human to be credible as an alien species. This brings us to the theory that these extraterrestrial beings had some influence on the evolution of life on Earth in the distant past, or that they are an ancient race of humans that was forced to abandon Earth, but still watches over the planet.
Cattle mutilation is a term that has been adopted to describe the apparent killing, and then mutilation, of cattle under unusual or anomalous circumstances. Sheep and horses have also been mutilated, and the phenomenon is not specific to cattle. A hallmark of these incidents is the surgical nature of the mutilation. The creatures are often found completely drained of blood, with missing internal organs. There is no obvious point of entry, and the surgically precise removal of the animal&rsquos reproductive organs and anal coring is consistent. Another strange occurrence surrounding the mutilations is that the animal&rsquos bodies are found dumped in an area where there are no marks or tracks leading to or from the carcass, even when the body is found in soft ground or mud. The surgical-type wounds observed appear to be made by intense heat and a very sharp/precise instrument.
Often flesh will be removed to the bone in an exact manner and location, such as around the jaw exposing the mandible. The first largely reported case of mutilation occurred near Alamosa, Colorado, in 1967. The event involved a horse named Lady, who was discovered with her head and neck skinned. The cuts on the horse were very precise and no blood was found. According to Lady&rsquos owner, there was a strong medicinal odor in the air that surrounded the corpse. At the scene, fifteen tapering, circular exhaust marks were punched into the ground. This evidence was discovered over an area of some 5000 square yards. Similar to other cases of animal mutilation, the area surrounding Lady showed an increase in radiation levels. By the mid 1970s, mutilated cattle were reported in 15 US states and in many other areas all over the world.
Many of the accounts include unexplained lights, sounds and UFOs. It has been noted that mutilated cattle are avoided by large scavengers, such as coyotes, wolves, foxes, dogs, skunks, badgers and bobcats for several days after death. Similarly, domestic animals are reported to be visibly agitated and fearful of the carcass. According to Dr. Howard Burgess, nearly 90% of mutilated cattle are between four and five years old. Laboratory reports carried out on some of these animals have shown unusually high or low levels of vitamins or minerals in tissue samples, and the presence of chemicals not normally found in animals.
In one case involving a 1978 mutilated cow in New Mexico, samples from the animal&rsquos liver were found to be completely devoid of copper and to contain four times the normal level of zinc, potassium and phosphorus. As you would suspect, a government cover-up has been offered as an explanation for the deaths. This is often fueled by the reported presence of black helicopters near mutilation sites. Various hypotheses have been written, suggesting that cattle mutilations have been committed by aliens who are gathering genetic material for unknown purposes. Proponents of the ancient alien theory suggest that, as cows make up a significant part of the global human diet, a study is being carried out on this element of the human food chain.
Over the years, it has been scientifically observed that the Earth&rsquos Moon holds some strange characteristics. The Moon is the 5th largest natural satellite in the Solar System. It is believed to have been created by a giant impact between the young Earth and a Mars-sized body. After examination, it has been noted that the Moon is apparently in the wrong orbit for its size, according to its current assumed density. Astronomy data indicates that the internal regions of the Moon are less dense than the outer, giving rise to the inevitable speculation that it could be hollow. Some of these claims come from the fact that when meteors strike the Moon, it rings like a bell. More specifically, when the Apollo crew, on November 20, 1969, released the lunar module, after returning to the orbiter, the module impact with the Moon caused their seismic equipment to register a continuous reverberation like a bell for more than an hour.
In July of 1970, members of the then Soviet Academy of Sciences, Michael Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, proposed the Spaceship Moon Theory. The pseudoscientific theory claims that the Earth&rsquos moon may actually be an alien spacecraft. Vasin and Shcherbakov&rsquos thesis was that the Moon is a hollowed-out planetoid created by unknown beings with technology far superior to any on Earth. Huge machines would have been used to melt rock and form large cavities within the Moon. The Moon would, therefore, consist of a hull-like inner shell and an outer shell made from metallic rocky slag. The &ldquoSpaceship Moon&rdquo was then placed into orbit around the Earth. Proponents of this theory point to the increased reports and pictures of UFOs taken by NASA on their missions to the moon. It has been found that asteroids and meteors not only create shallow craters on the Moon&rsquos surface, but produce a convex floor to the crater instead of concave as expected, supporting the idea of a rigid shell.
The moon is far older than previously expected, maybe even older than the Earth or the Sun. The oldest age for the Earth is estimated to be 4.6 billion years old, while Moon rocks were dated at 5.3 billion years. The chemical composition of the dust upon which the rocks sit is remarkably different from the rocks themselves. This indicates that the lunar surface may have been moved from somewhere else and placed on the Moon. Some of the Moon&rsquos craters originated internally, yet there is no indication that the Moon was ever hot enough to produce volcanic eruptions. Hundreds of moonquakes are recorded each year that cannot be attributed to meteor strikes. Some of the quakes seem to follow a specific schedule.
The moon&rsquos crust is much harder than originally presumed. When NASA was recorded drilling down a few inches into the Moon&rsquos surface, it appeared that metal shavings were visible. Earth&rsquos moon is the only natural satellite in the Solar System that has a stationary, near-perfect circular orbit. How does one explain the coincidence that the moon is just the right distance, coupled with just the right diameter, to completely cover the sun during an eclipse? Professional astronomers have been gradually discouraged from investigating a phenomenon that has been reported on the Moon for 1,000 years. It is short-lived light, color, or other changes in the appearance of the lunar surface, referred to as Transient Lunar Phenomena.
Starting in May of 1917, something happened to three shepherd children in the town of Fátima, Portugal. The events have become known as Our Lady of Fátima. Starting on May 1, 1917, the children began to describe seeing a woman &ldquobrighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal ball, pierced by the burning rays of the sun.&rdquo The being was reported to have appeared to the children on the 13th day of six consecutive months in 1917, starting on May 13. According to ten year old Lúcia Santo, in the course of her encounters, the woman confided to the children three secrets, now known as the Three Secrets of Fátima. Thousands of people flocked to Fátima and Aljustrel in the ensuing months, drawn by reports of visions and miracles. On three separate occasions before the Miracle of the Sun, the children reported that the Lady had promised to them that she would, on October 13, 1917, reveal her identity and provide a miracle &ldquoso that all may believe.&rdquo
On October 13, 1917, the Miracle of the Sun was witnessed and reported by 50,000 to 100,000 people in the Cova da Iria fields near Fátima, Portugal. The people in attendance had assembled to observe the publicized event. According to many statements, after a downfall of rain, the dark clouds broke and the sun appeared as an opaque, spinning disc in the sky. It was said to be significantly duller than normal, and to cast multicolored lights across the Earth, the people and the surrounding clouds. The sun was then reported to have careened towards the earth in a zigzag pattern. It was said that the people&rsquos previously wet clothes became &ldquosuddenly and completely dry,&rdquo as well as the wet and muddy ground that had been previously soaked because of the rain. According to the reports, the event lasted approximately ten minutes.
The Miracle of the Sun was marked by a large amount of angel hair over the land. On July 13, 1917, the lady is said to have entrusted the children with three secrets. These secrets have been highly controversial in the Catholic Church, and have been revealed to the public at different time periods, with the final one coming out in 2000. The First Secret was allegedly a vision of Hell. The Second Secret was a statement that World War I would end and goes on to predict World War II. The second half of the secret includes information about Russia and requests that it become consecrated to the Immaculate Heart. It should be noted that the Second Secret wasn&rsquot revealed until 1941, after World War II had already began.
The majority of the controversy is with the Third Secret. It was revealed in 2000 and includes information about the persecution of Christians in the 20th century that culminated in the failed assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II. However, historical references to the Third Secret indicate something else entirely, with information regarding Apocalypse, a great apostasy, and satanic infiltration of the Catholic Church. If you are unfamiliar, apostasy is the formal disaffiliation from, or abandonment of, a religion by a person, basically, criticism of a person&rsquos former religion. In 1980, John Paul II was quoted on the Third Secret. &ldquoIt should be sufficient for all Christians to know this much. If there is a message, it is said that the oceans will flood entire sections of the Earth and from one moment to the other, millions of people will perish.&rdquo
Val Camonica, Italy, is one of the largest valleys of the central Alps, in eastern Lombardy. It is the location of a set of ancient paintings that are believed to depict forgotten deities. The pictures resemble modern day astronauts, despite being painted around 10,000 BC. I can see the resemblance to a space suit, but I am more impressed with the modern day photographic evidence that was captured by the Solway Firth Spaceman photograph. On May 23, 1964, Jim Templeton, a firefighter from Carlisle, Cumberland, took three pictures of his five-year-old daughter while on a day trip to Burgh Marsh, situated near Burgh by Sands and overlooking the Solway Firth in Cumbria, England.
The only other people reported on the marshes that day were a couple of old ladies, and although cows and sheep would have normally been plentiful, they were huddled together at the far end of the marsh. In the second image captured by Templeton, a white figure can be seen in what looks like a space suit. Templeton insists that he did not see the figure until after his photographs were developed, and analysts at Kodak confirmed that the photograph was genuine. To this day, the picture remains unexplained and a source of international fascination. When the picture was taken, in 1964, human space suits were in their extreme infancy. It has been suggested by some people that the figure is merely someone with their back to the camera, perhaps wearing a hat or helmet.
Upon the national release of the photograph, Jim Templeton claimed that he was visited by two men who, he says, came from Her Majesty&rsquos Government. The men tried to make Templeton admit that he had photographed a person, but he refused. In the same time frame that the picture was taken, a Blue Streak missile launch at the Woomera Test Range, using Cumbrian-built weaponry, was aborted because of two large men who were witnessed on the firing range. The technicians reported that the figures resembled the Solway Firth Spaceman. Ufologists have used the photograph as evidence that extraterrestrial life has influenced the modern day space program, including space suits.
Let's summarize what we've learned about Jesus from this examination of ancient non-Christian sources. First, both Josephus and Lucian indicate that Jesus was regarded as wise. Second, Pliny, the Talmud, and Lucian imply He was a powerful and revered teacher. Third, both Josephus and the Talmud indicate He performed miraculous feats. Fourth, Tacitus, Josephus, the Talmud, and Lucian all mention that He was crucified. Tacitus and Josephus say this occurred under Pontius Pilate. And the Talmud declares it happened on the eve of Passover. Fifth, there are possible references to the Christian belief in Jesus' resurrection in both Tacitus and Josephus. Sixth, Josephus records that Jesus' followers believed He was the Christ, or Messiah. And finally, both Pliny and Lucian indicate that Christians worshipped Jesus as God!
I hope you see how this small selection of ancient non-Christian sources helps corroborate our knowledge of Jesus from the gospels. Of course, there are many ancient Christian sources of information about Jesus as well. But since the historical reliability of the canonical gospels is so well established, I invite you to read those for an authoritative "life of Jesus!"
It&rsquos all about origins
There are only two &lsquogames in town&rsquo when it comes to how the universe and life arose. Either big bang, cosmic evolution is true, or there is a divine Creator as the Bible states. ET really needs evolution to be true, and the concept of God creating alien life would violate the very Gospel of Christ (see Did God create life on other planets?) Although Blue Book ended in 1970 (other projects followed like the Condon Report), even today, the US government continues to spend millions on UFO research. As such, this subject is right in CMI&rsquos ballpark.
So, one must wonder why, after 60 years of research why no tangible, concrete answer has been found. And it&rsquos not going away. When I first became involved in this subject, the most popular, secular view was that UFOs were real physical craft visiting us from a distant planet or star system. This is called The Extraterrestrial Hypothesis. But as we showed in our own movie Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a Deception, Dr Hynek eventually came to believe that we are dealing with something interdimensional, even &ldquoparanormal&rdquo to quote him directly. This is known as The Interdimensional Hypothesis. In fact, very few serious researchers today doubt this. But this presents a problem because it is very difficult to empirically test something that appears in our realm as some sort of non-tangible or ethereal entity, which can appear, disappear and perform all sorts of supernatural feats. I personally have a lot of respect for Dr Hynek as a genuine researcher looking for answers. He was a pioneer of serious research into the UFO phenomenon and his &lsquoClose Encounters&rsquo classification system is still used today to describe the various levels of UFO events. I am saddened, however, that his secular worldview limited his interpretation of the data he was researching because he did not find the truth before he died.
10. Ricky McCormick
In 1999, 41-year old Ricky McCormick was found dead in the middle of a field in Missouri. Inside of his pockets were two pieces of paper with strange writing that may actually be a secret code. The letters were in Ricky’s crude handwriting, but his family was confused because Ricky could not read. No one has found the killer, or figured out what his messages meant.

Does this Enigmatic French Counter Provide Evidence for Historic UFO Sightings? - History
The first abduction case to be brought to the publics attention was back in 1964. Betty and Barney Hill reported seeing a UFO and experienced a period of missing time while on a long car journey. When they started suffering from bad nightmares they sought help from psychiatrist Dr Benjamin Simon who hypnotised them as to find out what was the root of the nightmares. Under hypnosis they both seperatly described how they were abducted by Aliens and shown around the spacecraft before under going medical examinations. Betty also spoke of the origin of the aliens which were of the zeta reticuli system but at that time it wasn't discovered until 1969. Afterwards they both went public about their experience and it was then when Alien Abductions were born.
One subset of the UFO phenomenon has broken through to the mainstream. These are the infamous triangular craft. The reports are simply too many and too clear. The sizes of these triangles have ranged from small to immense. Most are slow-moving and low-flying occasionally people describe them as boomerang-shaped instead of triangular. The fact that they fly so low, and so slowly, is a problem that demands an explanation, both scientifically and politically. Complicating the matter are the many witnesses who describe exceptional speed and maneuverability relating to these triangles, such as flat pivot turns or incredible acceleration. (Richard Dolan)
CE-5 and Human-Initiated Contact
CE-5 (Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind) is a term describing a fifth category of close encounters with Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI), characterized by mutual, bilateral communication rather than unilateral contact. Evidence exists indicating that CE-5s have successfully occurred in the past. -- "CSETI has. succeeded in intentionally establishing contact with extraterrestrial spacecraft, on two occasions at very close range, and with multiple witnesses present." CSETI is the only worldwide effort to concentrate on putting trained teams of investigators into the field where 1) active waves of UFO activity are occurring, or 2) in an attempt to vector UFOs into a specific area for the purposes of initiating communication. Contact protocols include the use of light, sound, and thought. Thought - specifically consciousness - is the primary mode of initiating contact.
In 1999 an important document was published in France entitled, UFOs and Defense: What must we be prepared for? ("Les Ovni Et La Defense: A quoi doit-on se préparer?"). This ninety-page report is the result of an in-depth study of UFOs, covering many aspects of the subject, especially questions of national defense. The study was carried out over several years by an independent group of former "auditors" at the Institute of Advanced Studies for National Defense, or IHEDN, and by qualified experts from various fields. Before its public release, it has been sent to French President Jacques Chirac and to Prime Minister Lionel Jospin. The report is prefaced by General Bernard Norlain of the Air Force, former Director of IHEDN, and it begins with a preamble by André Lebeau, former President of the National Center for Space Studies (Centre National D’études Spatiales), or CNES, the French equivalent of NASA. The group itself, collective author of the report, is an association of experts, many of whom are or have been auditors of IHEDN, and it is presided over by General Denis Letty of the Air Force, former auditor (FA) of IHEDN.
Crop circles celebrated twenty five years of age this year. This little known fact will come as a surprise to most people. It will also be somewhat of a revelation to many that when this phenomenon began on that fateful night in Warminster, England, it was in very modest terms in the form of a simple, elegant circle of pressed wheat some 30 ft in diameter. Two and a half decades and some 9000 formations later, crop circles have grown into complex mathematical fractals, in lengths up to three quarters of a mile, in area coverage as large as 36,000 square ft, and in geographic location. Crop circles- or agriglyphs- can now be found in most countries around the globe. The issue is that no man-made crop circle has satisfactorily replicated the features associated with the real phenomenon which has baffled scientists and researchers.Worldwide, some 4000 crop circles have been created by a force totally at odds with modern science.

General / Mass Sightings
The number of documented general sightings in the modern age numbers approximately 120,000, of which 20,000 have been described as landings. Numerous surveys and opinions polls conducted over the last 50 years consistently report that between 5%-10% of the US population has seen what they consider to be a UFO. According to the United Nations, since 1947, approximately 150 million people have been witnesses to UFO sightings throughout the world
GEPAN / SEPRA / GEIPAN (France)
Since 1977, the national space agency of France CNES has been helping civilian and military authorities understand the precise nature of Un-identified Aerospace Phenomena (PAN). The unit involved is the Rare Aerospace Phenomena Study Department (SEPRA) based at the CNES technical centre in Toulouse. Since 1977, the department has developed a precise analytical methodology and today has accumulated a considerable database. The SEPRA database is comprised of more than 2200 different cases, with some 6000 eyewitness accounts and approximately 100 sightings from aircraft.
"The infrastructure needed to maintain and expand the level of secrecy which can deceive presidents and CIA Directors and senior congressional leaders and European Prime Ministers and the like is substantial - and illegal. Let me be clear, the entity which controls the UFO matter and its related technologies has more power than any single government in the world or any single identified world leader. The current state-of-the-art in secrecy is a hybrid, quasi-government, quasi privatized operation which is international - and functions outside of the purview of any single agency or any single government. ‘The Government' - as you and I and Thomas Jefferson may think of it - is really quite outside the loop. Rather, a select, tightly controlled and compartmentalized ‘black' or unacknowledged project controls these matters. Access is by inclusion alone and if you are not included, it does not matter if you are CIA Director, President, Chairman of Senate Foreign Relations or UN Secretary General, you simply will not know about or have access to these projects." Dr. Steven M. Greer, Understanding UFO Secrecy
There are at least 4,000 humanoid cases (researched by Albert Rosales), also known as Close Encounters of the Third Kind (CE-III), a term coined by J. Allen Hynek. Humanoid" means "having human form or characteristics." The term "Close Encounter of the Third Kind" means seeing or coming in contact with an entity of unknown origin. The encounter may or may not be related to the sighting of an unidentified craft.
Illinois UFO Sighting
This famous UFO case involved the sighting of a huge unidentified triangular-shaped UFO by police officers and others in the early morning hours of January 5, 2000, over the state of Illinois. The officers, from a number of small Illinois towns, were able to track the unknown object and maintain radio contact with each other during the event. Their in-depth testimonies have been fully documented by investigators.

JAL Flight 1628 Over Alaska
In November, 1986, a Japanese crew of a jumbo freighter aircraft witnessed three unidentified objects while flying over Alaska, USA. This sighting gained international attention when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that it was going to officially investigate this sighting because the Air Route Traffic Control Center in Anchorage, Alaska, had reported that the UFO had been detected on radar. Captain Terauchi was featured on numerous radio and TV programs and in People Magazine. Within a few months of these events he was grounded, apparently for his indiscretion of reporting a UFO, even though he was a senior captain with an excellent flying record. Several years later he was reinstated. The UFOs in this case were tracked on both ground and airborne radar, witnessed by experienced airline pilots, and confirmed by a FAA Division Chief.

Men in Black (MIB)
One of the most unusual aspects of the UFO mystery is the Men in Black (MIB) phenomenon. It involves the subtle intimidation of UFO witnesses by strange visitors dressed almost entirely in black. Years of amassed evidence points to a definite trend that is no mere illusion. The identity of the MIB is just as elusive as anything else to do with UFO's. Governement agencies, the CIA, as well as alien entities have been put forward as answers.

Project CONDIGN (UK)
"The British Government have long denied they have carried out any secret study of the UFO phenomenon. But they were wrong. Between 1996 and 2000 the Ministry of Defence paid a security-cleared expert. to carry out a study and draw up a secret report on the potential threat posed to the UK by “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” – UFOs. The report asserts “that UAP exist is indisputable. [they] clearly can exhibit aerodynamic characteristics well beyond those of any known aircraft or missile – either manned or unmanned.” But the study attempts to explain the phenomena [as natural phenomena]." The 4 volume, 460 page report of the study – formerly classified SECRET - was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Dr David Clarke and colleague Gary Anthony, and published on the UK MoD website on May 15, 2006. The classified study, completed in March 2000, was codenamed Project Condign. (source: Dr. David Clarke - http://www.uk-ufo.org)
Public Opinion Polls on UFOs
Numerous public opinion polls from the last 50 years, and from multiple different countries, report very consistent and similar findings: 50% of the population believes in the reality of UFOs and 5% of the population has seen a UFO.
