Positive aspects of beliefs in "UFOs" and some downsides to such beliefs

It seems to me that many who believe in "UFOs" (that they are alien spacecraft piloted or maneuvered by aliens who are visiting us) tend to be, on the whole, spiritually-oriented.
(I know I am generalizing it and I could be wrong on this).

Their main focus in life doesn't seem to be concentrated in such things as acquisition of material wealth or power.
Their main focus seems to be in "living right" and in "searching for truth" to the best of their knowledge or ability.
To me this is good.
And they have something to look forward to in life.

Probably the biggest hope for those "die-hard" believers seems to be that one day (and most believers seem to hope for the imminent appearance of aliens in "UFOs") the aliens will openly land and will help us solve all the problems of this depressing and deteriorating world we are living in.
Of course there are some people who say that this kind of belief is almost equivalent to substituting "God" with "aliens").

Many of my friends (who are not into "UFOs") always tell me how envious they are about me because "you are interested in studying about "UFOs" are lucky because you have such a wonderful dream in life".

I am not sure when they say things like this whether they are complimenting me or feeling sorry for me (as if I had lost my marbles and am living in a dream world). LOL!!

Moreover, this is the reality, that most people, such as one's friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc., do not talk about "UFOs" day in and night, much less talk about it AT ALL in daily life.

Those who claim to be in the "mainstream" (and claim to be in the "real world", which seems to be the bulk of the population) usually think you're a little weird for believing in "aliens" or taking an interest in the subject of "UFOs". (Even though they don't say so directly to you).

As soon as I mention "UFOs", they immediately assume that I am a believer in "aliens".
(They don't seem to be able to differentiate between studying about the UFO phenomenon and believing in "aliens").

Of course I must admit that there are also some downsides to believing in "UFOs".
There is always a danger of fanaticism that could lead "believers" towards isolationism or somewhat limited association with "normal" people.

(Although we do not even know for sure who is a "normal" person who leads a "normal" life).

Also, there is always a danger of paranoia.

For example, many conspiracy believers who start out by believing in one conspiracy theory, have a tendency to soon start ascribing every single thing that happens in this world to "conspiracies".

They begin to believe fanatically that everything is a "cover-up"!!

But I am so glad that I got myself involved in studying about the UFO phenomenon since I was a high school kid back in the early 1960's.
I have been researching this fascinating phenomenon for more than 45 years already!

Even though (despite my long years of research) I have no conclusive answers that I can offer to people about this strange phenomenon, I do not regret it at all because I can definitely say that this continues to be one of the most baffling mysteries of all time, especially of our time!!

Why "UFOs" will never become a top nightly TV news story

from Norio Hayakawa at Civilian Intelligence Central

July 18, 2010

It is a sad fact, especially to die-hard "UFO believers" that UFO sighting news have never been (and will never be) treated as a top headline story in most national and local nightly TV news.
And, if any, most of the time such news stories about UFO sightings come at the very end of the half-hour nightly national or local TV news.
Never have they been a top news story.

Why is it so?
Simply because the mainstream news media still consider and categorize the subject of "UFOs" as part of Pseudo Science.
The news stations seem to do its best to avoid any ridicule.
And so they have no choice but to treat such news with a "light-hearted" attitude.

Usually the news anchor makes a cynical, smart-alecky and (most of the time) comical remarks about the sighting or about the subject matter in general.
And then, usually all of the anchors end up together with a laughter.

It is a convenient way to end the nightly news on a "light" note, a break from "serious" and increasingly depressing subject matters such as economy, politics, wars, terrorism, crime, environmental destruction, ad infinitum.
The subject of "UFOs" occupies the very end of a long list of all available topics, and usually only as a "filler" if they can't find any other items to bring the half-hour news program to a close, on a rather "happy" or "light-hearted" tone.

We all hope that some day in the future, UFO news will become a top story in the nightly news program.
But, will that day ever come?

Beliefs in "UFOs" no different from "religious beliefs"

by Norio Hayakawa
July 10, 2010

Beliefs in "UFOs" as physical extraterrestrial spacecraft are no different from "religious beliefs".
It seems to me that they are primarily based on faith.

Religious beliefs are an intrinsic nature of human beings.
So there is nothing wrong or unusual about religious beliefs per se.

I am fascinated with a segment of the population's "beliefs in UFOs as physical extraterrestrial spacecraft" and "beliefs in physical extraterrestrial aliens that pilot or maneuver those UFOs".

People ask me: "so, what do you actually believe in?"
My answer to them is: "I believe that some people believe that we are being visited by physical extraterrestrial aliens in physical UFOs".

Then they ask me: "don't you believe that we are being visited by physical extraterrestrial aliens in physical UFOs?"

In that case, my favorite answers are:

1) The truth is out there!!.........(somewhere)


2) I want to believe!!........ (not "I believe")

(These are two great slogans from the X-files!!) (LOL!!)

Stephen Hawking, theoretical scientist and one of the most brilliant minds of our time, states that in this wide universe there ought to be civilizations somewhere else besides our earth.

However, at the same time Stephen Hawking also states that no aliens have ever come or will ever come to visit earth in UFOs.

(What Stephen Hawking was referring to was UFOs as physical alien spacecraft piloted or maneuvered by physical alien beings).

The late Carl Sagan, who was also one of the most brilliant minds of our time, basically said the same thing.

If I were given a chance to choose between Stephen Hawking and "ufologists" (such as myself), I would definitely go with Stephen Hawking.

Two of the greatest "ufologists" of all time (in my opinion), Dr. Jacques Vallee and the late John A. Keel, had long given up on the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ET hypothesis) of the origins of UFOs, which continues to dominate this entire UFO field.
(Are we slowly being "conditioned" to accept the ET hypothesis?)

Vallee and Keel basically came with a conclusion that this whole phenomenon goes beyond the physical and that it may be impossible to study it through the so-called "scientific" or "empirical" method.

In other words, we may be confronting a phenomenon no different than some form of religious manifestations.

So, back to square one: beliefs in "UFOs" are no different from "religious beliefs".

Why I support the City of Roswell, but not the Roswell UFO Museum

from Norio Hayakawa at Civilian Intelligence Central

This is stricly my opinion.
It is evident that the world-famous Roswell UFO Museum has always promoted only the extraterrestrial interpretation of the Roswell incident.
And, unfortunately, it seems to continue to exclude any speakers who differ from their view.
Of course, it can do anything it wants, since it is a private organization.

Fortunately, in recent years, some UFO researchers who bring up alternative explanations and views on the Roswell incident have been coming to the Roswell UFO Festival and have begun to give presentations.
I totally welcome the emergence of those researchers.
Unfortunately, of course, those speakers are not welcome to speak at the UFO Museum.
This is truly a shame.

However, the good news is that the City of Roswell (especially in recent years) has become open to various speakers with various interpretations of the Roswell incident.
However, when the general public hears about the annual Roswell UFO Festival, it seems to assume that the Festival is mainly sponsored by the UFO Museum.
This is far from the truth.

There are several organizations that play a major role in sponsoring the Roswell UFO Festival.
First and foremost is the City of Roswell itself.
Special thanks goes to the tireless effort of people such as Renee Roach, unselfish, hard-working marketing director of the city.
All events sponsored by the City of Roswell are free.
The main venue of the City of Roswell's UFO Festival is at the Roswell Convention and Visitors Center, 912 N. Main St.
Right next to the Center is the Roswell Museum and Art Center.
This is where all lectures and presentations given by many UFO researchers (including researchers whose views differ from what the Roswell UFO Museum dictates) are free to the public.
Speakers with alternate views of the Roswell incident have been welcome to speak there.
What is truly great about the City of Roswell's part in all of this is, again, that the events sponsored by the city is all free of charge, including the many entertainment events of the Roswell UFO Festival.

On the other hand, all events sponsored by the Roswell UFO Museum are not free.

The City of Roswell, therefore, is in a bind because, on the one hand it benefits from many visitors who visit the Roswell UFO Museum and will spend money in the city.
But, on the other hand, the City of Roswell has a difficult time with the UFO Museum because the UFO Musem's financial impact and influence to the city is big.

In other words, it seems that the Roswell UFO Museum has become too powerful (and perhaps too dictatorial?) and has a tendency to dominate and influence the direction of the Roswell Festival.
Personally I like Free Events.

This is why I will continue to support the City of Roswell, especially the work of Renee Roach who has done so much to promote the Festival.
Yes, I will definitely continue to support the City of Roswell's role in the UFO Festival, and not the Roswell UFO Museum.

Top Priority U.S. Military Report's claims about "Apocalyptic Christians" and the Second Coming of the Christ......see the Report at the end

from Norio Hayakawa at Civilian Intelligence Central

(This may also relate to a segment of the population's beliefs in "UFOs" and "Aliens"........and also to the future possible applications of such programs as the alleged Project Blue Beam)

July 6, 2010

One of the main characteristics of America's so-called Neo-Conservative movement (although some people say that it seems to have slightly lost its momentum these days) with the backing of Fundamentalist, Evangelical Christians, is their total support of Israel through the belief that contemporary Israel is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies and that the U.S. must continue to support the State of Israel, no matter what.

A large number of these American Fundamentalist, Evangelical Christians, therefore, believe that we are living the the "end-time" period of God's prophetic calendar.

It is of utmost importance to point out some of the "end-time" scenarios as believed by the supporters of this view.

Here is the typical order of the prophetic events to come, as outlined by many of those Christians who seem to hold on to the so-called Pre-millenial, Dispensationalist, Pre-Tribulation viewpoints.


They seem to believe that this could easily begin with the escalation of the Middle East conflict, involving Israel. They seem to believe that Iran and Syria will play a major initial role in this scenario.

They say that the Ezekiel 38 scenario includes the attempted invasion into Israel by all Islamic forces (led and orchestrated by the northern-most power, i.e., Russia) and will conclude with a miraculous Israeli victory.

They believe that it is suggested in the Bible that it will take 7 years to bury the dead from this unprecedented conflagration. (The U.S. will be involved, directly or indirectly in this conflagration, they explain).


According to their belief, the Ezekiel 38 scenario will conclude with the mysterious appearance of the Anti-Christ who will create a Peace Treaty between Israel and the Palestinians (and all Islamic confederation).


They say that the Ezekiel 38 scenario could also conclude with a simultaneous, mysterious disappearance of millions of people from this earth, which will result in total chaos, confusion and fear among the global populace.
This, they say, is the "Rapture".
It will be a mysterious, mass "evacuation" of the believers to meet the Lord in "mid-air".
(The physical bodies will be mysteriously and instantaneously converted to celestial bodies).

In other words, the so-called "born-again" believers will be translated from one side to the other, i.e., from the earthly plane to the heavenly dimension and will meet Jesus in "mid-air".

They say that the "Rapture" (from Latin "raptare", to "snatch" away, as in the eagle "snatching" away her baby when danger comes and taking it away to a safer location, etc.), is a supernatural event clearly suggested in the Bible that has not happened yet in the history of mankind, but will be certain to happen, according to most of these pre-tribulationist, dispensationalist believers.

It will be an inexplicable, instantaneous disintegration of all atomic particles of each of our cells of our tissues, i.e., the instant conversion of our physical body into a spiritual, celestial "body" which will be swooshed up into "mid-air".

In other words, they believe that "in the twinkling of an eye", our physical bodies will go through a mysterious, sudden transmogrification (a favorite word used by John Keel) and will be lifted up to meet the Lord in "mid-air". Our entire physical bodies (the tissues, the cells will go through a sudden, inexplicable atomic fission-type transformation, they say.)

They believe that the "Rapture" is a conduit prepared by God for us to escape the coming global wrath known as the Tribulation (comparable to the days of Noah, when God safely place a few faithful believers in the ark first and then caused the rain to pour down thereafter).
Pre-tribulationist, dispensationalists believe that this unprecedented event will take place simultaneously with the appearance (the revealing) of the Anti-Christ.

The Anti-Christ, according to these believers, will not be able to come to power until the "body of believers" (together with the presence of the Holy Spirit) is removed from this earth.
Only then, at that moment, can the Anti-Christ come into power.

According to these Christians, the "Rapture" will literally be a celestial wedding, the union of the bride (the "church" or "the body of believers") and the Groom (Jesus Christ).
This "wedding" celebration in the air will last for 7 days, which could be equivalent to 7 earthly years.


When the Anti-Christ appears on global emergency TV news conference, many of these Fundamentalist Christians say that he would calm down the frightened people of the earth with his ingenious, well-calculated explanation regarding the sudden disappearance of millions of people from the earth; this could be when "UFOs" are brought up; the Anti-Christ could use some type of "extraterrestrial" intervention explanation.

(By the way, in the U.S., the majority of the so-called Fundamentalist, Evangelical Christians hold on to the viewpoint that somehow the "UFO" phenomenon is "Satanic" or "diabolical".
These groups seem to believe that "UFOs" will play a major role in these future biblical prophecies.

However, some of these Fundamentalists seem to emphasize that only one-third of the entire angelic entities of the universe are demonic or malevolent or "fallen" and that the rest, i.e., the remaining two-thirds are benelovent or "good" angels.

There are some Fundamentalist ministers who state that the malevolent one-third are the ones posing as "extraterrestrial aliens" and are deceiving a segment of the population in the time period they describe as these "End-time" period of history.)

Some theorists even believe that if a global government of some sort is to be set up intentionally (by force) in the future, there are several ways to accomplish it. Creating wars is one example, they say.

Creating other series of "crises" is another, such as manipulating natural global catastrophes, or even creating artificial ones. Some researchers call this the "ORDO AB CHAOS" theory.

They also point out that Henry Kissinger at one time suggested that should the world suddenly face an external threat (i.e., from "outer space") whether REAL or PROMULGATED, it would accelerate a cry for a global unified government. They say that Ronald Reagan and Gorbachev also had allegedly made such similar remarks, that if the world is faced with such an extraterrestrial threat, we will all forget our differences and be united as one to defend this earth from such threats.

Some conspiracy theorists seem to pose this question:
Can the "world government" stage a deceptive, "alien contact/landing" scenario?
If the secret government were to stage such a fake, "extraterrestrial" type of event, it would definitely be beneficial to them if there remains an adamant element of society who have always believed in "UFOs" and "aliens").

In any case, Fundamentalist, Evangelical Christians seem to believe that somehow the Anti-Christ will come up with a brilliant, convincing explanation for the "Rapture" event and that somehow (supernaturally) the world will have a sigh of relief by his explanation.

By the way, here is an interesting item regarding the concept of the "Rapture":


According to these fundamentalists, this event will be the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation Period (i.e., the "New World Order" of the Anti-Christ, the first half of which will be relatively and deceptively peaceful, and the second half of which will be an iron-fisted rule of the Anti-Christ, who will declare himself to be God at mid-point).


Towards the end of the 7th year, nations such as Red China (and the rest of the "Kings of the East") will challenge the dictatorship of Anti-Christ's Europe-based New World Order and will begin to cross the Euphrates and make a move towards the valley of Megiddo.

This battle, the battle of Armageddon, will be the final global battle.
During the climax of this battle, celestial forces led by Jesus Christ (and accompanied by those who had been "raptured") will descend and will destroy all earthly forces.


Jesus Christ, according to these believers, will rule from Israel for a 1,000 years.
This is the Millenial Kingdom.


At the end of the 1000 years, there will be a minor rebellion by the descendants of those who may have survived the Armageddon and continued to procreate, thus having physical bodies.
That minor rebellion will be crushed by God, these believers say.


This is the gist of the events to occur in the near future, according to many of the so-called Fundamentalist, Dispensationalist, Evangelical, Pre-Millenial, Pre-Tribulationist Christians.
Is this all wild, "science fiction"?
Maybe. But again, no one knows.

Does it hurt to believe in this "unbelievable" scenario?
These Evangelical Christians seem to say that it won't hurt at all to believe that such scenarios could come true.
They say that they have nothing to lose by believing in it even if it doesn't come true, but everything to gain if it indeed takes place, if one is a believer.
I will take a chance in this scenario.


UFO researcher, Sean Casteel, recently wrote a book called:
Will He arrive on a cloud of glory?
Inside of a UFO?
Surrounded by angels? or as a hologram seen all over the world?

Casteel quotes from a Top Priority U.S. Military Report which claims that "Apocalyptic Christians" and the Second Coming of the Christ could pose a serious threat to world peace.

He says:


According to the Prophetic News Service and other major Christian media, the U.S. military recently commissioned a monograph for the U.S. Army School of Advanced Military Studies as authored by Maj. Brian L. Stuckert.
This report - in no uncertain terms - declares that "those who believe in 'Dispensational Millenialism', the literal return of Jesus Christ to this earth to reign on His throne for 1,000 years, to be the enemies of America and totally unsuitable to serve in a leadership capacity.

"Maj. Stuckert actually goes further with his ideas", states Prophetic News, "when he clearly says that those with these kinds of religious beliefs, spawned by a literal interpretation of the Scriptures, are an actual danger to world peace, and will, in fact, if allowed to influence 'public policy', bring America to total defeat in the world arena".

This report, released in 2008, was endorsed by several high ranking officers at the Army School and distributed to top level military personnel, though they adamantly refuse to provide a list of those it has been passed around to.

An accurate definition of "Dispensational Millenialism" is provided which includes:
A belief system that believes that the world is going to be purified through a dramatic sweeping based on a battle between good and evil in the Book of Revelation.....And contends that in the very near future Jesus Christ will 'rapture' or remove His church from the Earth, and that finally a period of intense tribulation and battles will follow culminating with the cataclysmic defeat of Satan.

This interesting book is available on



And, finally:

Here is the U.S. Military Report:

The Roswell incident. Was it hastily "staged" to cover something else?

The Roswell incident of 1947. Was it hastily "staged" to cover something else?

In 1945, immediately after the end of World War II, the U.S. brought in many German scientists and engineers (as well as some former SS intelligence officers) to New Mexico through a program called Operation Paperclip.

After arriving at Wright Patterson Army Air Field in Ohio, it is said that many were initially stationed at Albuquerque's Kirtland Army Air Field (present Kirtland Air Force Base). Some of the scientists and engineers were then trasferred to Los Alamos.
Some others were transferred to White Sands Missile Ranges.
Many of the German engineers played some significant roles in the development and testing of U.S. rocketry in the late 1940's.

The U.S. military also secretly began to test-fly several prototypes of unconventional, flying wing aircraft (some with Ramjet engines) which the Germans developed in the early 1940's, including a few of the Horten brothers' flying wings.
It is said that one of the Horten brothers' flying wing aircraft may have reached even speeds of up to 600 miles per hour when tested in Germany in 1943.

It is said that, with the help of these scientists and engineers, the U.S. military secretly conducted these tests over the deserts of southern New Mexico in 1946 and 1947. Other flight tests may also have been conducted in wide areas in the Western states, extending from Washington all the way to Texas.

These prototypes of flying wing aircraft were basically crescent-shaped. Some others were delta-shaped or manta ray-shaped.

Accidental crashes of some of these craft may have necessitated the creation (and even "staging") of convenient "cover stories".

So, what actually did happen near Roswell, in July of 1947?

The bottom line is that there is no hard, tangible, solid, physical, irrefutable, documentary evidence that a physical, extraterrestrial spacecraft crashed outside of Roswell in July of 1947.

But something did happen outside of Roswell.

It is extremely difficult to conceive in my mind that any highly advanced extraterrestrial civilization, traversing through this vast space and arriving at our earth would even "crash".

The concept of something "crashing" is simply a typical human concept.
It is only a human, limited, "linear" viewpoint bound by a uni-dimensional, "empirical" thinking.
Any highly advanced civilization (that could even penetrate our dimensional barrier in a non-linear fashion) would never have such accidents, in my opinion.

Stephen Hawking, theoretical physicist and one of the most brilliant minds of our time, states that in this wide universe there ought to be civilizations somewhere else besides our earth.
However Stephen Hawking also states that no aliens have ever come or will ever come to earth in UFOs. (What Stephen Hawking was referring to was UFOs as physical alien spacecraft.)

The late Carl Sagan, who was also one of the most brilliant minds of our time, basically said the same thing.

If given a choice to choose between Stephen Hawking and "ufologists", I will definitely go with Stephen Hawking.

So, in conclusion, if there were indeed such a "crash" near Roswell in 1947, the only way it could have been a "crash" would have been if it were intentionally "staged".
