The UFO phenomenon has connected with religions in history. Ezekiel’s Wheel and the Hindu Vaimanika Sastra are examples. UFOs have also been associated with cults such as Raelism and Heaven’s Gate.
With UFO social behavior in recent decades, we can discern certain parallels between UFO beliefs and elements of religion. Here are a few:
Aliens – Angels, Messengers
God – The U.S. Government (all knowing and all powerful)
Flying Saucers – Signs and wonders
Scriptures – The MJ documents, crash retrieval literature, declassified government information
Second Coming – Disclosure
Eschatology – Alien landing and takeover
Miracles – Alien healing, telepathy, transfer of consciousness, interstellar travel, materialization and dematerialization
Creation Myth – Alien manipulation of human biology, secrets of the universe
Apostles and Apostolic Succession – MJ-12 members, government insiders, corporate legacies
Gnosis – Inside knowledge of black projects, deep secrecy
Evangelization – Convince the world that UFOs are real, congressional hearings
Relics – Recovered saucers, UFO pieces, bodies
Dreams and Visions – Sightings, experiences
Persecution – Silencing of whistleblowers, ridicule of witnesses
Prophets – (Take your pick!)
Holy Ground, Pilgrimage – Roswell New Mexico, Area 51
Prayer – Channeling
Revelation – “Downloads”
Note: These examples are not meant to debunk UFOs or demean believers, but rather to relate metaphors and inspire thought.
