UFOs have been tracked by scientists traveling at over 25,000 miles per hour. UFOs have also made right angle turns at an estimated 15,000 miles per hour. They have made 90 degree turns in mid air and they have instantly reversed direction while moving at these high speeds. Planes made by humans make sonic booms when they travel at such speeds, but UFOs make no sonic booms. In fact, in most sightings of UFOs, no noise is heard at all. UFOs have sometimes been picked up on radar, and other times they cannot be picked up on radar. UFOs sometimes show up on photographs, but other times they do not. While in flight UFOs frequently change size or shape in front of people, and they appear as strange lights. UFOs also change colors, many times only when accelerating, with virtually every color of the spectrum reported. Sometimes UFOs instantly appear and disappear in front of people and they will pass right through physical objects. People have also seen multiple UFOs merge into one UFO, and one UFO turn into many UFOs. There is no one that can explain, from a scientific standpoint, how it is possible for any material craft to do these things. Many have objected to the idea that UFOs are alien aircrafts precisely because UFOs have performed flying maneuvers that are impossible for any materially constructed craft. They violate the known laws of science.
Physicist James McCampbell, speaking to an academic conference on UFOs in 1975, stated: “… in flight, their startling departures, sudden stops, and right angle turns at high speed require them to be virtually massless.”
Established in 1955, the British journal, Flying Saucer Review, is widely recognized as the leading UFO publication in the world. It’s authored by over fifty experts from around the world, who conduct major investigations of UFOs. Gordon Creighton was the editor of the journal until he died in 2003. In 1996, Creighton made the following official position statement on UFOs: “There seems to be no evidence yet that any of these craft or beings originate from outer space. The whole phenomenon involves a mass of features that conflict with modern science, and many researchers now believe that more than one type of being may be involved, some of them originating from outer space and some of them of an ‘interdimensional’ nature, and consequently possibly from some unknown aspect of our own world...” Many UFO researchers have now abandoned the ETH (extraterrestrial hypothesis) for the IDH (interdimensional hypothesis). Creighton also said about UFOs: “I do believe that the great bulk of these phenomena are what is called satanic.”
Charles Bowen is the current editor of the Flying Saucer Review. Speaking about UFOs and their occupants, he said: “I have pondered over the idea that the frightening, spooky creatures described by some witnesses could be some sort of psychic projection. There are noticeable dreamlike qualities about the incidents described in these cases. Is it possible that something from somewhere is coming here and by means incomprehensible to us?”
To find out more about what UFOs really are, we need to listen to what the world’s top experts on UFOs have concluded about the UFO phenomenon.
Dr. Jacques Vallee is a computer scientist and astrophysicist. Vallee has addressed the UN on the subject of UFOs and is widely recognized as the premier expert on the subject. He has done computer analysis on tens of thousands of UFO reports. He has looked for patterns that could be clues to an explanation of UFOs. Vallee has also authored eight books on UFOs and was the real life basis for the character of the French scientist “Claude LaCombe” in the UFO movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.”
In May 1955, Vallee saw a UFO flying over his home in France. In the mid-1960’s, Vallee initially attempted to validate (like many other UFO researchers) the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis or ETH. But by 1969, Vallee’s conclusions had changed. He publicly stated that the ET Hypothesis ignored too much data.
Vallee: “… we are dealing with a yet unrecognized level of consciousness, independent of man but closely linked to the earth. For reasons that will become clear, I do not believe any more that UFOs are simply the spacecraft of some race of extraterrestrial visitors.”
Vallee: “Consider what these [UFO] sightings have in common. In each case the so-called ‘spacecraft’ did not disappear by moving away, even at high speed. It simply vanished on the spot, or it slowly faded away... In other cases, UFOs have been reported to enter the ground. I hardly need to point out that this behavior is contrary to what physical objects do, and quite impossible to duplicate with our current spacecraft technology. It is the behavior of an image, or a holographic projection. Yet at other times the objects have left material traces.”
Vallee: “Most witnesses are not primarily reporting an object or a craft; they are reporting a light, a massive, multicolored, intense, pulsating light, a playful, fascinating, impressive, hypnotic light…”
Vallee: “I propose that the UFO we see is, among other things, a device which creates a distortion of the witness’s reality; that it does so for a purpose, which is to project images or fabricated scenes designed to change our belief systems; and that the technology we observe is only the incidental support for a worldwide enterprise of ‘subliminal seduction’… They are helping to create a new form of belief: an expectation of actual contact among large parts of the public. In turn realization of that age-old dream: salvation from above, surrender to the greater power of some wise navigators of the cosmos.”
Vallee: “Using a single probe the size of a beer keg in orbit a thousand miles above the earth, human technology as it exists today would be able to capture in a few weeks most of the important facts about the planet’s geography, weather, vegetation, and culture. Given the earth’s abundant emission of radio and television programs for the last fifty years, even the deployment of such a space probe might be unnecessary. This is one of the little-recognized facts of the UFO problem that any theory has yet to explain. The theory of random visitation does not explain it. Either the UFOs select their witnesses for psychological or sociological reasons, or they are something entirely different from space vehicles. In either case, their appearances are staged!”
Vallee: “I believe that when we speak of UFO sightings as instances of space visitations we are looking at the phenomenon on the wrong level. We are not dealing with successive waves of visitations from space. We are dealing with a control system.”
Vallee, speaking of the UFO phenomenon, said the UFOs “cannot be spacecraft in the ordinary nuts-and-bolts sense. The UFOs are physical manifestations that cannot be understood apart from their psychic and symbolic reality. What we see here is not an alien invasion. It is a spiritual system that acts on humans and uses humans.”
Vallee: “I think UFOs are perpetrating a deception by presenting their so-called ‘occupants’ as being messengers from outer space…”
Vallee: “The UFO occupants… are not extraterrestrials. They are the denizens [inhabitants] of another reality.”
Astronomer Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who died in 1986, was considered one of the top experts in the world on the subject of UFOs. Hynek was a former skeptic who dismissed UFO sightings as something made up by “kooks and crackpots.” As he continued to study the issue, his view changed. Dr. Hynek eventually started the Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) with Dr. Jacques Vallee. Hynek also headed the U.S. satellite optical tracking program for many years. He was the author of many technical textbooks on astrophysics and several books on UFOs. When Hynek investigated UFOs, he used the services of accomplished and skilled scientists with a scientific approach to all the data. Hynek served for over twenty years as the Air Force’s scientific expert on UFOs. He studied thousands of reports, and interrogated hundreds of witnesses to UFO experiences. Hynek’s conclusions on UFOs were accurately summed up this way: “Hynek submitted that perhaps UFOs were part of a parallel reality, slipping in and out of sequence with our own. This was a hypothesis that obviously pained him as an empirical scientist. Yet after 30 years of interviewing witnesses and investigating sighting reports… no other hypothesis seemed to make sense to him.” Hynek repeated this view when he was interviewed by Newsweek.
Speaking about UFOs, Dr. Hynek said the following: “One of the most intriguing aspects of UFO sightings is their apparent isolation in space and time. Sightings are usually made in one place at a time and last for short periods, sometimes appearing out of nowhere. This is much more suggestive of a parallel reality than, let’s say, visits from some far away planet, in which case, we might expect them to stick around for a while.”
Dr. Hynek: “Another peculiarity is the alleged ability of certain UFOs to dematerialize... There are quite a few reported instances where two distinctly different UFOs hovering in a clear sky will converge and eventually merge into one object...”
Dr. Hynek: “Many UFO reports seem to pertain more to accounts of ‘poltergeists’(cases where objects fly around the room and strange sounds are heard) and other types of ‘psychic’ manifestations than to actual solid items of nuts and bolts hardware. That is one of the reasons why I cannot accept the obvious explanation of UFOs as visitors from outer space.”
Dr. Hynek and Dr. Vallee describe this strange behavior of UFOs in their book, The Edge of Reality: “If UFOs are, indeed, somebody else’s ‘nuts and bolts hardware,’ then we must still explain how such tangible hardware can change shape before our eyes, vanish … seemingly melt away in front of us, or apparently ‘materialize’ mysteriously before us without apparent detection by persons nearby or in neighboring towns. We must wonder, too, where UFOs are ‘hiding’ when not manifesting themselves to human eyes.” Dr. Hynek concluded about UFOs: “The UFO phenomenon is the outstanding strange dilemma of our age. We don’t know what they are.”
Another one of the top living experts in the world on UFOs is John Keel. Keel began to investigate UFOs on a full time basis in early 1966. During just one four-year period of time, Keel interviewed thousands of people who claimed to see UFOs in more than twenty U.S. states. He reviewed more than 2,000 books, in addition to thousands of newspapers, magazines, and newsletters. Initially, like Dr. Vallee, Keel was hopeful that he could validate the ET visitation hypothesis, but abandoned that hypothesis after about one year investigating UFOs. Keel has authored many books on UFOs. He said: “The statistical data that I have extricated… indicate that flying saucers [UFOs] are not stable machines requiring fuel, maintenance and logistical support. They are, in all probability, transmogrifications of energy and do not exist in the same way that this book exists. They are not permanent constructions of matter.”
Keel: “Sometimes they [UFOs] reportedly turn a brilliant red and vanish. Other times they shift through all of the colors of the spectrum, turn white, and fly off into the night sky until they look like just another star.”
Keel: “There are countless sightings of objects that changed size and shape in front of the viewers or split into several smaller objects, each going off in a different direction. In some cases, this process was reversed, with several small lights converging together to form a single large one, which then went dashing off. Over and over again, witnesses have told me in hushed tones, ‘You know, I don’t think that thing I saw was mechanical at all. I got the distinct impression that it was alive.’”
Keel: “The UFOs do not seem to exist as tangible, manufactured objects. They do not conform to the accepted natural laws of our environment... The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon.”
Keel: “Many flying saucers seem to be nothing more than a disguise for some hidden phenomenon. They are like Trojan horses descending into our forests and farm fields, promising salvation and offering us the splendor of some great supercivilization in the sky.”
Keel, speaking about the UFO flying “aircraft”: “Our UFO catalog now contains flying cubes, triangles, hexagons, doughnuts, spheres, objects shaped like giant metal insects and transparent flying jellyfish. We’ve got UFOs with wheels, with wings, with antennas, with pointed domes, flat domes, no domes at all. We’ve got objects of every color of the spectrum. There have been giant, multi-windowed ‘cigars’ spitting blue fire from their tails… We have just about everything except a basic assembly-line model… Some tremendous unknown civilization is exerting an all-out effort to manufacture thousands of different types of UFOs and is sending all of them to our planet….”
Keel, speaking about the descriptions made by people who have claimed to have been abducted by aliens from the UFOs, said: “The reported UFO entities are also a mixed bag, not only in size but in general appearance. There have been UFOnauts [aliens] with pupil-less eyes, glowing eyes, eyes as big as saucers, tiny beady eyes, wraparound slit-eyes, cat-like eyes, and even no eyes at all. There have been noseless entities and mouthless entities. Ears have covered a wide range – from being pointed to being elephant-like.”
Does this make any sense? If some alien civilization were visiting or invading our world, their vehicles and personal appearance would look basically the same. There wouldn’t be vast differences among the saucers and the appearances of the aliens.
According to Einstein’s theory of special relativity, the speed of light is the maximum speed possible. If someone were travelling at the speed of light, they would be travelling at the incredible speed of 186,000 miles per second. Travelling at this speed you could circle the earth seven times in just one second. If you took off from earth, you would pass the moon in two seconds.
If aliens came from another galaxy, they would have to travel from a galaxy at least two million light years away. Even if they travelled at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second), it would take them two million years to get to earth. But what if the UFOs travelled from some distant star in our own galaxy? If these space travelers were to travel one million miles per day from the closest star system (alpha centuria) – which is more than twenty-five trillion miles from the earth – it would still take them 70,000 years to arrive at earth.
Some estimates indicate that a space ship carrying ten people, and travelling five light years to and from a nearby star system at almost the speed of light, would use up 500,000 times the total amount of energy consumed in the US in one year. Also, an almost equal amount of energy would be consumed just in slowing the aircraft from the incredible speed at which it was travelling. For larger crafts, such as the city-sized spaceships shown in the UFO movie Independence Day, the required energy needed would be even more staggering. Scientists like Donald Menzel rejected ETs visiting earth because even the nearest stars are too far away for interstellar travel to be possible. But there are other problems with space travel. It has been estimated that there are 100,000 dust particles per cubic kilometer of space. Travelling at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second), an impact with even one of these tiny dust particles would destroy a spaceship. At one-tenth the speed of light, the impact would be equal to an explosion of almost ten tons of TNT. Based on these scientific facts alone, without even considering all of the others about the true nature of UFOs, space travel by some alien craft is extremely unlikely.
The conditions outside Earth are far more destructive than most people think. For example, prolonged exposure to the cosmic rays in space can be fatal. There are also poisonous gases, deadly radiation, gigantic explosions, extreme gravitational forces, and the lack of proper atmospheres and chemical elements for life to exist. Just the temperature extremes in outer space would make almost any form of life either too incredibly hot or so cold it would be entirely rigid, brittle and dead.
Dr. Vallee held that, based upon the descriptions of many people who claimed to have been abducted by aliens from UFOs, their bodies could never sustain the rigors of space travel. Vallee stated: “the humanoid body structure of the alleged ‘aliens’ is not likely to have originated on another planet and is not biologically adapted to space travel.” Vallee listed this as one of the main reasons that UFOs were not ETs. Also, how do the “aliens” in UFOs breathe and live in our Earth’s air conditions without the aid of respiratory devices?
The DVD Creation and Miracles, Past and Present  shows that there is no scientific evidence for the theory of evolution. Nor is there any such evidence in the Bible. But a large number of astronomers believe that life evolved on earth, and therefore (according to them) it must also have evolved on other planets in space. If this were true, many alien races on other planets, which have been around a lot longer than we have, should exist. Some of them would be much more technologically advanced than we are. And if someone believed that somehow advanced aliens could reach us with aircraft, these older and more advanced beings probably would have already colonized our solar system, at least with robots.
While working at the Los Alamos, New Mexico nuclear facility in 1950, pioneer of atomic energy and Nobel Prize winner Enrico Fermi asked the following question: “Are we the only technologically advanced civilization in the universe, and if we are not, then where are they? Why haven’t we seen any traces of extraterrestrial life such as probes or transmissions?” If some intelligent aircraft couldn’t reach our solar system with an advanced aircraft, they would at least send us an intelligent radio signal.
Around the globe, SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) researchers have searched outer space waiting for signals from intelligent beings. They have listened on thousands of frequencies over the years. Nothing indicating intelligent life has ever been heard. In fact, all radio astronomers will admit that they have never received any intelligent signal from outer space. After an interview with SETI’s senior astronomer, Seth Shostak, National Geographic magazine stated: “He and his colleagues have never found proof anyone… or anything… ‘up there’ is trying to make contact.”
The Government of the U.S. has spent millions of tax dollars attempting to contact aliens. In the 1980s and 1990s astronomers conducted the largest search for ET life through the META and BETA programs. They simultaneously scanned millions of radio frequencies for any signs of intelligent communications, with no positive results.
Moreover, the official website for NASA states the following about UFOs: “The U.S. Air Force (USAF) and NASA have had intermittent, independent investigations on the possibility of alien life on other planets; however, none of these has produced factual evidence that life exists on other planets, nor that UFOs are related to aliens.”
Dr. Edward Condon was a physicist who led Colorado University’s Air Force-financed two-year study of UFOs. The final report of this study was published in January of 1969. In a speech in April 1969, Condon said: “Some UFOs may be such [ET] visitors, it may be postulated, and some writers go so far as to say that they actually are. To discover clear, unambiguous evidence on this point would be a scientific discovery of the first magnitude, one which I would be quite happy to make. We found no such evidence, and so state in our report…”
