George Adamski het beroemd geword deur sy UFO -foto's en uitheemse 'ontmoetings' te deel


Vir sommige was hy 'n profeet. Vir ander, 'n skaterlag. Selfs vandag nog, meer as 'n halwe eeu na sy dood, bly George Adamski een van die nuuskierigste en omstrede karakters in die UFO -geskiedenis.

Adamski het verskeie aansprake op UFO -bekendheid gehad. Aan die einde van die veertigerjare het hy tallose foto's geneem van wat hy aangedring het op vlieënde pierings. Maar kenners, waaronder J. Allen Hynek, wetenskaplike konsultant van die Lugmag se UFO-ondersoekspan Project Blue Book in die Koue Oorlog, het hulle as growwe vervalsings afgemaak.

Toe, in 1952, meld Adamski dat hy 'n besoeker van Venus in 'n woestyn in Kalifornië ontmoet en gesels het, met behulp van 'n kombinasie van handgebare en geestelike telepatie.

Sy verhaal sou van daar af net vreemder word.

'N Sterrekyker word gebore

Adamski beskryf sy beweerde avonture in verskeie boeke. Die eerste, Vlieënde bakkies het geland (1953), saam met Desmond Leslie, vertel sy geselsie met die Venusiaan. Dit was destyds wyd gelees en het later in die 1960's 'n nuwe generasie aanhangers gekry.

Adamski se opvolger uit 1955, Binne die ruimteskepe, het verdere vergaderings beskryf, nie net met die Venusiese nie, maar ook met afgevaardigdes van Mars en Saturnus. Volgens Adamski is elke planeet in ons sonnestelsel bevolk met mense-agtige inwoners, net soos die donker kant van die aarde se maan.

In die 1955 -boek beweer Adamski dat sy nuwe vriende hom aan boord geneem het van een van hul speurskepe, hom na 'n ontsaglike moederskip gevlieg het wat oor die aarde sweef, hom 'n rit om die maan gegee het en hom bederf het met 'n kleurvolle reisverhaal oor die lewe op Venus .

Onderweg is hy ook onderrig deur 'n ruimteman wat hy 'die meester' genoem het. Die meester, wat na bewering amper 1000 jaar oud was, het die geheime van die heelal met Adamski gedeel, waarvan hy slegs 'n paar op die aarde kon onthul.

Adamski het 'n belaglike voorkoms geword, en 'n internasionale beroemdheid geword en wyd aangebied. Koningin Juliana van Nederland het 'n groot opskudding gewek nadat hy hom in 1959 na haar paleis genooi het om buitemuurse doen en late te bespreek. Adamski het glo ook 'n geheime ontmoeting van 1963 met die pous geëis.

Adamski het gou volgelinge oor die hele aarde gehad. Maar nie almal was aan boord nie. Arthur C. Clarke, die skrywer van 2001: A Space Odyssey, het nie net Adamski se werk aan die kaak gestel nie, maar het sy gelowiges as 'nitwits' gekenmerk.

Wie was George Adamski?

George Adamski is na berig word in 1891 in Pole gebore, het as 'n jong seun saam met sy ouers na die VSA gekom en in die verre noordelike deelstaat New York grootgeword.

Dit lyk asof hy min formele opleiding gehad het, hoewel die pers hom later as 'professor Adamski' sou noem - 'n gewoonte wat hy blykbaar aangemoedig het.

Adamski geniet sy eerste glimp van glorie in 1934 as die leier van 'n groep wat homself die Koninklike Orde van Tibet noem. Die Los Angeles Times het berig dat hulle 'n ou landgoed in Laguna Beach, Kalifornië, gekoop het en beplan om die eerste Tibetaanse klooster in Amerika op die terrein te vestig. Die Tye beskryf “Prof. George Adamski "as" so vreemd soos die kultus wat hy borg. "

Op een of ander manier het Adamski die verslaggewer oortuig dat hy as kind in die 'antieke kloosters' van Tibet gewoon het. 'Ek het groot waarhede daarbo op' die dak van die wêreld 'geleer,' het hy gesê.

In 1936 was hy weer in die koerante, hierdie keer as die leier van 'n groep genaamd Universal Progressive Christianity, wie se internasionale hoofkwartier, volgens hom, binnekort in Laguna Beach gestig sou word.

Benewens die aanbieding van 'n belastingplan om die Groot Depressie in 1938 te beëindig, het die 'professor' tot die Tweede Wêreldoorlog uit die nuus gebly. Maar toe die naoorlogse UFO -gier opduik, spring Adamski reguit.

Oë op die lug

In Oktober 1946, het hy gesê, sien hy sy eerste UFO - ''n groot swart voorwerp, soortgelyk aan 'n reusagtige eetbare, en skynbaar roerloos'.

Sy volgende waarneming kom in Augustus 1947. Hierdie keer was dit nie net 'n enkele voorwerp nie, maar 'n optog daarvan - ten minste 184 deur sy graaf. Aan die einde van 1949 het hy volgens die aandrang van die Amerikaanse weermag 'n kamera aan sy teleskoop van ses duim vasgemaak en by elke geleentheid die lug begin skandeer. Binnekort het hy twee goeie UFO -foto's wat hy beskou het.

'Sedertdien, winter en somer, dag en nag, deur hitte en koue, wind, reën en mis, het ek elke oomblik moontlik in die buitelug deurgebring en na die lug gekyk,' skryf hy.

Teen die einde van 1952 het die lug oor sy huis in Kalifornië 'n soort UFO -skietgalery geword. Adamski het beraam dat hy nog 500 vlieënde pieringfoto's geneem het, waaruit hy 'n dosyn goeie foto's geneem het. Hy beweer dat hy afdrukke aan die lugmag verskaf het, maar hy het die negatiewe behou.

Teen hierdie tyd het koerante en tydskrifte Adamski se foto's gepubliseer, en hy het lesings gegee as 'n gesag oor UFO's. Omdat hy toevallig naby Mount Palomar, die tuiste van die beroemde sterrewag, gewoon het, is hy dikwels verkeerdelik geïdentifiseer as 'n professionele sterrekundige. Maar soos die ware sterrekundige Carl Sagan later opgemerk het, was die waarheid 'n bietjie meer alledaags: Adamski het ''n klein restaurant' in die omgewing bedryf 'en' het 'n klein teleskoop agtertoe opgerig '.

'N Noue ontmoeting van die Venusiese aard

Dit was in November 1952, in 'n afgeleë deel van die Kaliforniese woestyn, dat Adamski van aangesig tot aangesig met sy vermeende besoeker van Venus te staan ​​gekom het. "Die skoonheid van sy vorm oortref alles wat ek ooit gesien het," het Adamski geskryf. 'En die aangename aangesig van sy gesig het my bevry van alle gedagtes oor my persoonlike self. Ek het soos 'n klein kind gevoel in die teenwoordigheid van een met groot wysheid en baie liefde ... "

Die vlees van die Venusiaan was so sag soos 'n baba, het Adamski berig nadat hulle aan die handpalms geraak het, terwyl sy "hare sanderig van kleur was en in pragtige golwe op sy skouers gehang het, wat mooier glinster as die vrou wat ek nog ooit gesien het."

Toe die twee uiteindelik begin kommunikeer, het dit duidelik geword dat die Venusiaan 'n boodskap gebring het. Aardbewoners moet ophou mors met atoombomme, het hy aan Adamski gesê, voordat hulle hul hele planeet vernietig het. Die vreemdeling het bygevoeg: 'Boom! Boem! ”

Adamski was nie die eerste Amerikaner wat beweer het dat hy 'n vreemdeling ontmoet het nie, maar hy was die eerste wat openbaar geword het, en hy het vinnig die bekendste 'kontak' geword. Tallose ander sal in die komende dekades volg en hul eie verhale vertel van wat Hynek van Project Blue Book beroemd as "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" genoem het.

Sy nuwe bekendheid het van die nederige restaurant waar hy gewerk het, 'n toeriste -aantreklikheid geword. Een besoeker was Edward J. Ruppelt, destyds hoof van Project Blue Book, wat in 1953, incognito, kom inloer het om Adamski voor die hof te kry en kopieë van sy UFO pix te smous. 'Om na die man te kyk en na sy verhaal te luister, het u onmiddellik 'n drang om hom te glo,' het Ruppelt in sy boek uit 1956 geskryf Die verslag oor ongeïdentifiseerde vlieënde voorwerpeen het bygevoeg dat hy 'die eerlikste paar oë wat ek nog ooit gesien het' het.

Hoewel Ruppelt hom duidelik nie geglo het nie, was hy tog beïndruk. 'Met my vertrek het hy genadiglik meer mense ingevul, en die kasregister het 'n lekker skinkbord verkoop.'

Hynek het ook saam met 'n paar sterrekundiges by Adamski se eetplek besoek afgelê. Alhoewel hy Adamski probeer betrek het oor meer wetenskaplike aangeleenthede, onthou Hynek later: 'Al wat hy wou doen, was om foto's aan my te verkoop.'

Bedrieglike mens, 'n knakpot of 'n kosmiese boodskapper?

Adamski het ten minste nog een boek gepubliseer, Vliegbakke Afskeid (1961) en het steeds wyd aangebied.

Tydens 'n perskonferensie in Maart 1965 het hy voorspel dat 'n groot vloot vlieënde pierings binnekort op Washington, DC sou neerdaal, ongelukkig sou Adamski nie daar wees om hulle te groet nie - as hulle werklik sou aankom. Hy sterf daardie April op 74 -jarige ouderdom.

Sedert sy dood het Adamski se kritici hom geneig om uit te beeld as 'n onskadelike skelm, klein kunstenaar of miskien 'n bietjie van albei.

Ander, soos J. Allen Hynek, was effens dowwer en het Adamski en ander soos hy daarvan beskuldig dat hulle die hele veld van UFO -navorsing in diskrediet bring.

Skrywer Arthur C. Clarke het jare tevore dieselfde punt gemaak en gesê dat Adamski en mede -outeur Leslie “'n werklike onreg gedoen het deur die waarheid te verbloem en ernstige navorsers weg te skrik van 'n gebied wat van groot belang kan wees.”

Maar Adamski het sy verhaal tot die einde toe vasgehou - insluitend die opgewekte, maar op een of ander manier onheilspellende boodskap wat hy ingedien het Vlieënde bakkies het geland:

'My dringendste boodskap en smeking tot elke persoon wat dit lees, is: Laat ons vriendelik wees. Laat ons die manne uit ander wêrelde herken en verwelkom! HULLE IS HIER ONS. ”

George Adamski se doktorale dokument

Ingevolge die bepalings van die Wet op Vryheid van Inligting het 'n aansienlike hoeveelheid materiaal oor die beroemde/berugte George Adamski verskyn en die grootste deel daarvan uit die FBI. Daar moet gesê word dat die Buro -lêer oor die omstrede kontakpersoon baie vermaaklike leesstof bied. Maar miskien om redes wat u moontlik nie oorweeg het nie. Daar is nie 'n enkele papiertjie in die Adamski -lêer nie, wat daarop dui dat die FBI die minste besorg was oor die beweerde vreemdelinge -ontmoetings van die man. Dit was eerder sy openbare en vokale standpunt oor kommunisme wat J. Edgar Hoover se beste warm onder die kraag gehad het.

Adamski het gehoor dat kommunisme die weg van die toekoms is en dat die Sowjetunie uiteindelik die planeet sou oorheers. Dat Adamski duisende aanhangers, toegewydes en indrukwekkende mense aan sy woord vir Rusland gehad het, het die FBI in groot mate gepla. En so, en byna onvermydelik, is 'n lêer oor George oopgemaak. Maar daar is baie meer in die lêer as wat die era van die Koue Oorlog meebring. Daar is 'n kwessie van 'n sekere dokument wat Adamski verregaande behandel het, en nog 'n aangeleentheid wat die FBI in 'n kollektiewe toestand van frustrasie en woede laat beland het.

Vanaf 23 Maart 1953 het 'n groot deel van die FBI -transaksies met Adamski gegaan oor wat Adamski gesê het tydens 'n lesing wat hy op 12 Maart vir die Californian Lions Club gehou het. Volgens die FBI se kantoor in San Diego het Adamski het sy toespraak voorafgegaan met 'n verklaring dat (en ek haal die FBI hier aan) “ … dat sy materiaal alles by die Federale Buro vir Ondersoek en Lugmagintelligensie uitgeklaar is. Adamski, het verteenwoordigers van beide die Buro en die Lugmag hom by sy Palomar Gardens Cafe besoek, en hy het hom ernstig vermaan dat hy 'n verklaring aflê wat daarop dui dat sy materiaal FBI en Lugmag seën het. Adamski ontken dat hy sulke bewerings gemaak het, wat nie verbasend is nie!

Ten spyte van sy ontkenning (wat die besoekende G-Men glad nie beïndruk het nie), is Adamski beveel om 'n amptelike dokument te onderteken, wat vir die FBI en die lugmag bedoel is en dat sy verklarings en materiaal beslis nie amptelik was nie uitkoms van watter aard ook al. Met een afskrif van die verklaring wat deur Adamski behou is, is addisionele kopieë na die hoofkwartier en die FBI -kantore in Dallas, Los Angeles en Cleveland versprei, aangesien “ … hierdie kantore vorige kommunikasie ontvang het oor [Adamski]. ”

Op 10 Desember 1953 neem sake 'n besliste afwaartse wending vir Adamski toe 'n verteenwoordiger van die kantoor van die Better Business Bureau (BBB) ​​in Los Angeles by die kantore van die Los Angeles FBI opdaag. Die man het die FBI meegedeel dat sy personeel Adamski se boek uit 1953 ondersoek, Vlieënde bakkies het geland, spesifiek om vas te stel of dit niks anders as 'n verregaande hoax was nie. Die BBB het die FBI meegedeel dat 'n man self ondervra is om die feite rondom Adamski vas te stel. Gedurende die onderhoud het Adamski blykbaar 'n dokument vir die BBB ' van die Lugmag. Weereens was die implikasie dat materiaal van Adamski die amptelike steun van die weermag en die Buro gehad het. Die FBI is meegedeel: “ [The Better Business Bureau] is geïnteresseerd in die vraag of hierdie dokument eg is en of u organisasie die boek van [Adamski ’s] onderskryf. ”

U sal waarskynlik nie verbaas wees om te verneem dat die dokument nie eg was nie. 'N Ondersoek wat deur spesiale agent Willis van die FBI -kantoor in San Diego gedoen is, het aan die lig gebring dat die dokument wat Adamski aan die Better Business Bureau vertoon het, in werklikheid niks minder was as 'n noukeurig afgeskrewe afskrif van die verklaring wat Adamski beveel het om beide die lugmag en die FBI maande tevore! Adamski was op die punt om hom in diep, warm warm water te bevind.

Op 16 Desember 1953 is die volgende dokument opgestel deur Louis B. Nichols, die hoof van die FBI se afdeling vir openbare betrekkinge: “ [Uitgevee] het Willis opdrag gegee om Adamski te besoek by die Palomar Gardens Cafe, Valley Center, Kalifornië . Dit is vyf myl oos van Rincon, Kalifornië, naby die Mount Palomar Observatory geleë. Willis is aangesê om die San Diego -agente, vergesel deur verteenwoordigers van OSI, te laat bel, om Adamski te lees en die oproer in 'n onsekere terme te lees en daarop te wys dat hy hierdie dokument op 'n bedrieglike, onbehoorlike manier gebruik het. Die Buro het nie sy toesprake of boek onderskryf, goedgekeur of goedgekeur nie, en hy sal eenvoudig geen verdere dwaasheid, verkeerde interpretasie en valsheid van sy kant duld nie. Willis is aangesê om die agente opdrag te gee om, indien moontlik, die betrokke dokument van Adamski af te haal. Willis het gesê dat hy dit sal doen en dadelik 'n verslag sal stuur. ”

Ondanks dreigemente van vervolging, het die FBI uiteindelik verkies om nie regstappe teen Adamski te neem nie. Wat Adamski betref, het hy baie verstandig gekies om nooit weer die kwessie van die doktorale dokument in 'n openbare forum te bespreek nie. En natuurlik moet hierdie spesifieke gedeelte van die lêer eenvoudig die geloofwaardigheid van Adamski (of gebrek daaraan) beïnvloed (a) sy aansprake op uitheemse ontmoetings en (b) die saak van sy omstrede foto's van beweerde uitheemse ruimtetuig.


George Adamski: koning van UFO -kontakpersone of 'n hoaxer?

In die laaste jare van die veertigerjare was George Adamski een van die heel eerste mense wat sy ontmoetings en ervarings met betrekking tot die UFO -verskynsels in die openbaar onthul het.

Adamski noem homself 'n 'filosoof, onderwyser, student en pieringnavorser', ten spyte daarvan dat die meeste ondersoekers tot die gevolgtrekking gekom het dat sy bewerings 'n uitgebreide hoax was, en dat Adamski self 'n bedrieër was, is daar baie mense wat werklik glo dat hy kontak gemaak het Nordiese uitheemse "ruimtebroers".

In November 1952 beweer die Pools gebore UFO-entoesias-George Adamski dat hy en verskeie vriende in die Colorado-woestyn naby Desert Center, Kalifornië, geloop het toe 'n uitheemse ruimtetuig neerval en naby hulle beland.

Wat het George Adamski beweer?

Adamski beweer dat hy alleen vertrek het en 'n tweede skip teëgekom het, waaruit 'n goudharige vreemdeling met die naam Orthon geklim het. Orthon, vermoedelik van die planeet Venus, het 'n boodskap van vrede gekom en Adamski gewaarsku oor die gevare van kernoorlog. Nadat hy weer in sy skip geklim en weggevlieg het, het Adamski en sy vriende gesê dat hulle gips van Orthon se voetspore geneem het - oënskynlik om te bewys dat hy regtig daar was.

Verder het hy ook beweer dat hy later na dieselfde landingsterrein teruggekeer het en 'n foto geneem het van die Venusiërs se skip wat neerdaal om hom te ontmoet. Dit was blykbaar die eerste duidelike prentjie ooit van 'n vlieënde piering, wat natuurlik in 'n japtrap bekend geword het.

Adamski het drie boeke geskryf wat sy ontmoetings met Nordiese vreemdelinge en sy reise saam met hulle aan boord van hul ruimteskepe beskryf: Vlieënde bakkies het geland (saam met Desmond Leslie geskryf) in 1953, Binne die ruimteskepe in 1955, en Vliegbakke Afskeid in 1961. Die eerste twee boeke was albei in 1960 topverkopers; hulle het altesaam 200 000 eksemplare verkoop.

Aantal probleme met Adamski se eise

Adamski beweer in sy boeke dat hierdie "uitheemse mense" van Venus, Mars en ander planete in die aarde se sonnestelsel afkomstig is. Nie een van die planete wat hy genoem het, kan egter die menslike lewe ondersteun as gevolg van hul omgewingstoestande nie. Die eerste vreemdeling wat Adamski beweer het dat hy ontmoet het, was byvoorbeeld van Venus, maar die atmosferiese druk op die planeet se oppervlak is 92 keer die van die aarde, dit het wolke wat 'n giftige stof reën wat vermoedelik swaelsuur is, die atmosfeer bestaan ​​amper heeltemal uit koolstofdioksied, met baie min suurstof, en die gemiddelde oppervlaktemperatuur van Venus is 464 ° C.

Tweedens is die foto wat hy beweer dat hy die UFO gekyk het, deur 'n deskundige ontleed, en hy het beweer dat dit glad nie 'n vlieënde piering was nie en blykbaar 'n straatlig, waar die blootgestelde landingsgestel gloeilampe was.

Sy vriende wat tydens die kontak by hom was, het ook verskillende weergawes van hul verhale. Kortom, sommige glo dat hy die hele ding opgebou het. Meer nog, omdat hy hom in die beginjare meestal deur handewerk onderhou het en in die 1920's in die okkulte beland het, wat iets gevorm het wat die Koninklike Orde van Tibet genoem word, wat geëindig het toe die verbod in 1933 herroep is. Volgens een getuie het op daardie stadium , Het Adamski beweer dat hy in die 'Flying Saucer Crap' moet beland.

Die vlieënde pieringverhaal het baie geld vir hom ingesamel. In 1949 begin Adamski sy eerste UFO -lesings gee aan burgerlike groepe en ander organisasies in Suid -Kalifornië wat hy vir die lesings aangevra en ontvang het. In hierdie lesings het hy 'fantastiese' bewerings gemaak, soos 'dat die regering en die wetenskap twee jaar tevore die bestaan ​​van UFO's vasgestel het, via radaropsporing van ruimtesonde van 700 voet aan die ander kant van die maan.' In sy lesings het Adamski verder beweer dat "die wetenskap nou weet dat alle planete [in die sonnestelsel van die aarde] bewoon is" en "foto's van Mars wat uit die Mount Palomar-sterrewag geneem is, het bewys dat die kanale op Mars deur die mens gemaak is, gebou deur 'n intelligente ver groter as enige mens op aarde. ” Soos 'n UFO -historikus egter opgemerk het, "selfs in die vroeë vyftigerjare het [Adamski's] bewerings oor oppervlaktoestande op en die bewoonbaarheid van Venus, Mars en die ander planete van die sonnestelsel gevlieg in die lig van massiewe wetenskaplike bewyse ... 'Hoofstroom' ufoloë was Adamski feitlik uniform vyandig en het nie net gesê dat sy en soortgelyke kontakverhale bedrieglik was nie, maar dat die kontakpersone ernstige UFO -ondersoekers belaglik laat lyk.

In 1963 beweer Adamski dat hy 'n geheime gehoor gehad het met Pous Johannes XXIII en dat hy 'n "Goue Erepenning" van Sy Heiligheid ontvang het. Adamski het op versoek van die buitenaardse diere met wie hy na bewering in aanraking was, met die pous vergader om 'n 'finale ooreenkoms' van hom te versoek weens sy besluit om nie direk met buitenaardse diere te kommunikeer nie, en ook om hom 'n vloeibare stof aan te bied om hom te red van die maag -enteritis waaraan hy gely het, wat later akute peritonitis sou word.

Op 23 April 1965, op 74 -jarige ouderdom, sterf Adamski aan 'n hartaanval nadat hy 'n UFO -lesing in Maryland gehou het.

Ten spyte van talle kritici oor dekades, bly George Adamski 'n stigter van die sogenaamde UFO-subkultuur, selfs nou byna 50 jaar na sy dood.


Top 10 bekendste UFO -hoaxes

'N Paar dinge is meer bevredigend vir die kreatief mededingende as om 'n medemens te verslind. Om 'n begeerte na roem met 'n ondeunde reeks te koppel, kan vir een persoon groot vermaaklikheid beteken, en 'n groot kulturele aanpassing vir die res van ons.

As daar bewys word dat 'n hoax 'n hoax is, luister nie almal nie. Sommige gelowiges bly gelowiges vir die res van hul lewens, ongeag hoe onwaarskynlik hulle bewerings is. Die onuitwisbare kulturele watermerk wat deur hoaxing gemaak word, word geïllustreer in die tien bekendste UFO -hoaxes van die afgelope paar dekades.

Shermer, die redakteur van die tydskrif Skeptic, het verlede jaar 'n kort video vrygestel waarin sy ondersoek is na hoe maklik dit is om UFO -foto's te vals. Hy het kinders en lsquomake & rsquo -UFO's met huishoudelike materiaal, gom en silwer verf laat gebruik, en dan het die kinders hul skeppings laat fotografeer wat aan die vislyn hang teen 'n grys lug.

Die foto's het nie met 'n professionele fotograaf ontleder geknoei nie, en hy kon nie die vislyn sien nie, en die beelde was nie vlek nie.

Toe Shermer die foto's by 'n sypaadjie aan die publiek wys, was sommige skepties, en sommige het geglo. Toe hy vir hulle wys dat die foto's bedrieglik lyk, lyk dit asof byna almal teleurgesteld is, en baie beweer vasbeslote en uitdagend om in UFO's te glo, asof die aanvaarding van bewyse persoonlike swakheid toon.

In die negentien vyftiger- en sestigerjare het die Amerikaanse kulturele neiging gekom, nie net van die sien van vlieënde piering nie, maar ook van ontmoet-en-groete met hul inwoners. Die massa -hoax versprei oor die hele land as mense worstel vir 'n tydperk in die kollig. Sommige sou vreemd aantrek, poseer vir foto's of saggies lastig val. Minstens een man (genaamd R. E. Harrison II) het foto's van 'n beeld op 'n televisieskerm geneem en beweer dat dit 'n vreemdeling by die deur is!

'N Skandaliger en grusamer voorbeeld van hoaxery van uitheemse liggaam kan gevind word in Ray Santilli & rsquos swart-en-wit Alien Obduksie-opnames, waarin 'n grillerige, haarlose humanoïde met groot oë en 'n groot kop op 'n tafel verskyn , gedeeltelik ontbind. Die beeldmateriaal is in die negentigerjare vrygestel en het baie aandag geniet. Santilli het gelowiges in 2006 teleurgestel deur die opnames as vals te erken. Ten minste het hy probeer om ons almal in die steek te laat; en hy beweer dat die beeldmateriaal nie heeltemal vals is nie, maar 'n rekonstruksie van 'n uitheemse lykskouing wat wel plaasgevind het. Hoe dan ook, die voorgestelde dier was nie 'n ware vreemdeling nie, en aangesien Santilli dit nie by die vrylating erken het nie, kan die beeldmateriaal as 'n hoax beskou word.

Die bekendste van hierdie koerante is The National Enquirer, The Globe, en die gekste van alles: die Weekly World News. Hierdie tydskrifte het meer bedrog gepleeg as wat 'n hoaxer sou wou bedrieg, en die ontslag is ten volle bedoel om hierdie punt te help insink. Gelukkig vir die publiek met 'n vlak kop is daar byna niemand wat deur skandale getiteld soos hierdie getrek word nie: & ldquoAlien Bible Translated, & rdquo & ldquoRussians Shoot Down UFO, & rdquo & ldquo Two-Ton Alien Hairball Found in Australia, & rdquo & ldquo Aliens het my gesig gesteel, & rdquo & ldquo UFO Sparks Killer Forest Fire, & rdquo en & ldquo Japanese Woman to Wed Space Alien. & Rdquo

Het vreemdelinge die maan as 'n vullishoop gebruik? Stry hulle met 'n stam grootvoete (grootvoete)? Hoe presies kan uitdrywing UFO's beïnvloed? Wie is P & rsquoLodd, en hoekom is hy besig om met die Clintons te fraterniseer? Ongetwyfeld is iemand êrens mislei om ten minste sommige van hierdie mal dinge te glo. Hierdie langvertel-poniekoerante is dus amptelik hoaxers. Selfs as die meeste van diegene wat poniekoerante koop, dit net vir vermaaklikheidswaarde doen, staan ​​die tydskrifte self by die beweerde waarheid van hul verhale.

Vir Halloween in 1938 regisseer Orson Welles 'n hoorspel wat geïnspireer is deur H. G. Wells & rsquos & lsquoWar of the Worlds, en die klassieke verhaal van gewelddadige uitheemse inval. Die aand wat dit oor die CBS -radionetwerk uitgesaai is, het baie mense nooit vergeet nie. Dit was 'n ongelooflike optrede, en eintlik was dit so ongelooflik dat mense die strate ingevaar het en vir hul lewens uit hul huise gevlug het. Die spanning van die tweede wêreldoorlog kry slegs 'n deel van die eer vir die herrie, waarin byna twee miljoen mense oortuig was dat & lsquoWar of the Worlds & rsquo 'n nuusuitsending was, eerder as 'n fiksiewerk.

Alhoewel hierdie voorbeeld van menslike liggelowigheid tog amper nie 'n hoax is nie, het die stasie herhaaldelik gewaarsku dat die verhaal fiktief is, maar dit is net dat mense dit misgeloop het terwyl die kanaal 'n enorme aantal dwase en paniekbevange mense insluit hier nodig.

Wat kan meer hoaks wees as 'n kultus? Dit is bekend dat kultusleiers meer charismaties is as die gemiddelde man, en volgelinge oortuig om die buitengewone sonder enige goeie rede te glo (en te doen). So 'n vermoë is bewys deur die Heaven & rsquos Gate & rsquos-leier, die witkop en eksentrieke Marshall Applewhite, en sy vrou, Bonnie Nettles.

Deur die volgelinge bekend as & lsquoTi en Do & rsquo, het die paar agt en dertig mense oortuig om gelyktydig selfmoord te pleeg, sodat hul siele 'n rit kon maak op 'n vreemde ruimteskip wat agter die Hale Bopp-komeet lê, terwyl dit in die aarde en rsquos-uitsig kom. Nodeloos om te sê dat die komeetvolgende UFO nooit bestaan ​​het nie, of ten minste nooit werklik waargeneem is nie.

Met die koms van maklik toeganklike, hoë kwaliteit 3D-weergawe rekenaarsagteware, het die algemene publiek UFO-fakery na 'n nuwe vlak geneem. UFO -waarnemings, met oortuigend gedetailleerde video -bewyse, het blykbaar deur Brittanje, die Verenigde State en veral Haïti ontplof. Die Haïtiaanse UFO-opnames, gewild op YouTube en na bewering in Augustus 2007 verfilm is, beeld verskeie naby-aansigte van gemeganiseerde, aangesteekte pierings uit. 'N Vrou snak terwyl die handwerk direk bo -oor vlieg en dan in die verte tussen twee palmbome.

By nadere ondersoek van die palmbome is die video waarskynlik 'n bedrogspul: elke palmboom in die video is presies dieselfde. Die ruimtetuie is nie net geskep deur 3D-weergawesagteware nie, maar die hele video, insluitend die agtergrond, voorgrond en ongemaklike kamerawerk, is vervaardig. Die skepper van die video, aanlyn bekend as & ldquoBarzolff81, & rdquo het in die openbaar gesê dat hy 'n program genaamd & ldquoView 6 Infinite & rdquo gebruik het om die beeldmateriaal vir die pret te vervaardig.

Volgens die Amerikaanse regering het 'n hoogs geheime weerballon in Julie 1947 in Roswell, New Mexico, neergestort. Amptenare het die materiaal weggevee nadat burgerlikes dit ontdek het, en dit later vir nuusberig aangebied. Wat deur die nuus gewys is, was ongetwyfeld 'n weerballon, maar ooggetuies beweer dat dit wat heeltemal neergestort het, heeltemal anders was: 'n uitheemse ruimtetuig.

Gerugte lui dat die ruimtetuig en sy dooie insittendes na Area 51, 'n hoogs geheime militêre basis in Nevada, vervoer is vir berging en eksperimentering. Die film & lsquoIndependence Day & rsquo gebruik hierdie idee, net soos baie science fiction -televisieprogramme en boeke.

Die regering sou redes hê om dit alles stil te hou, en die toeristebedryf in Roswell het rede om mense te laat glo. Die ingewikkelde kontroversie rondom hierdie hele beproewing maak een ding duidelik: hoewel ons nie sekerlik kan sê wie nie, is dit iemand wat dit beslis mislei.

Namate die Roswell -kontroversie die nuus bereik het, het kinders se grappies oral honger geword vir 'n stukkie van die aksie. Gewapend met kameras het hulle enigiets skyfagtig gegooi, van wieldoppe tot tertborde tot pierings, die lug in, terwyl hulle tientalle foto's gemaak het. Deur 'n kameralens kan 'n ou knoppie op die grond lyk soos 'n UFO wat neergestort het. Sommige foto's kan as vals bewys word: daar word nie met die film gepeuter nie, en die korreligheid van die foto's self verhinder dat selfs die deskundiges definitiewe antwoorde kry oor presies wat uitgebeeld word.

Terwyl Fox Mulder & rsquos & ldquoI Want To Believe & rdquo -plakkaat waarskynlik 'n prentjie is van iemand se hoed wat ons gegooi het, sal ons nooit seker kan wees nie. Maar wat ons wel weet, is dat baie kinders in die veertigerjare 'n goeie silwer vir ma gesteel het om te help met 'n middag en 'n onheil, en dat hulle dit vandag nog steeds doen. Die res is 'n kwessie van waarskynlikheid.

Stedelinge en plattelanders is vertroud met die graansirkel van Engelse oorsprong. 'N Paar Engelsmanne het in 1975 'n paar planke, 'n tou en 'n paar metings na 'n veld geneem en na 'n paar afsonderlike probeerslae die inwoners daarvan oortuig dat iets heeltemal onnatuurlik hul gewasse in mooi vorms was.

Sonder 'n menslike belydenis was dit net natuurlik dat nuuskieriges die groot, geheimsinnige en komplekse patrone verbind met die groot, geheimsinnige, komplekse UFO's wat mense beweer dat hulle af en toe flikker. Teen die tyd dat die oorspronklike vervaardigers van mensekringe in 1996 erkenning gegee het aan hul vandalisme, het amper niemand geluister nie. Dit het nie saak gemaak of gewas sirkels maklik met gewone hulpmiddels geskep kan word nie, of dat 'n paar mense presies wys hoe dit gedoen word: entoesiaste was vasbeslote in hul oortuigings, en bly ten spyte van talle ontbrekings glo dat gewassirkels van buitenaardse oorsprong is, selfs vandag.

Scientology is die grootste vreemdelingbedrog van almal. Deur die druktegniek van leuenopsporing (via & ldquoe-meter & rdquo) te gebruik, die geleide herlewing van traumatiese ervarings en die hangende wortel van die & ldquonext-vlak, & rdquo L. Ron Hubbard, 'n beroemde maar middelmatige science fiction-skrywer, wat beplan om voordeel te trek uit die bankrekeninge van die kwesbare deur hulle geestelike redding te bied. Volgelinge van Scientology en rsquos noem dit 'n godsdiens. Almal noem dit 'n vernietigende, gevaarlike kultus.

Maar wat het dit met vreemdelinge te doen? Daarin lê die cincher: sodra die wetenskaplikes van die brein breinspoel en kwesbaar genoeg geword het om 'n hoë toewydingsvlak te bereik (OT -vlak 7), word hulle vertel van die verhaal van Xenu, wat 'n paar jaar gelede aan die publiek gelek is. Baie is bekend: Xenu was 'n intergalaktiese krygsheer wat miljarde jare gelede beplan het om 'n volksmoord van 'n ander wêreld te pleeg. 'N Hele uitheemse spesie is op die aarde in 'n vulkaan gestort, en hulle spoke word dan getoon met lyste, oorlog en menslike godsdiens. Hierdie spoke het thetane geword, en thetans is waaruit menslike siele bestaan. Dit veroorsaak alle menslike kwale. Hulle klou aan ons onderbewussyn vas in hul ellende en verwarring, en dra al hul probleme aan ons oor. Scientology poog natuurlik om die thetan -probleem op te los.

Sommige sê dat wetenskaplikes die verhaal laat vaar het, maar die feit bly staan ​​dat hierdie weeklikse-wêreld-nuus-vriendelike verhaal dekades lank deur die gieriges gebruik is om die toegewydheid van vermoeide volgelinge te versterk. Scientology is nou miljoene dollars werd, deels te danke aan hierdie verhaal, wat dit die suksesvolste en bedrieglikste UFO -hoax is wat ooit gedoen is.

Dr. Oberth said that the behavior of the Flying Saucer ruled out any means of propulsion known to us, and certainly rocket propulsion. A possible explanation was the use of a ‘anti gravity’ device. Dr. Oberth added he did not believe the Russians, Americans, or anyone else could have developed such a means of defeating gravity so quickly and in complete secrecy.”

In a 202-page report outlining the survey results, Dr. Sturrock reported some to the strange UFO sightings and experiences of 62 Astronomers who said they had seen or recorded UFOs. Dr. Sturrock said he was very encouraged by the results of his survey, and the responses he got from the AAS members.

This too is difficult to accept. It implies the existence of intelligent life on a majority of planets in our solar system or a surprisingly strong interest in earth by members of other solar systems. The textbook says, ‘The best thing to do is keep an open and skeptical mind and not take an extreme position.’ The suggestion comes from a 500 page notebook which is restricted to academy use only.

I believe that God created rational beings on other planets in the Universe – beings who have developed advanced civilizations, explored space, found us and will eventually communicate with us.” (Note: Father Renya also took telescopic photos of such crafts moving across the lunar surface very similar to those taken by George Adamski nearly two decades earlier.

Archeology & Ancient History

• In 1958, world-renowned archeologist, Professor Marcel Homet, in his book, The Sons of the Sun, published findings into ancient civilizations in Brazil and along the Eastern slopes of the Andes. Included were a series of petroglyphs, discovered in the area known as the Pedra Pintada and believed to exceed 10,000 years of age. One series of these petroglyphs, resemble by nearly 80% those engraved upon a photographic plate and given to Adamski in 1952 by his space contacts, a full six years earlier. Professor Homet said, “ Although I shall be destroying a great deal of the current theories about the world of antiquity, I have never found Adamski to be untruthful. I read Adamski’s book before the publication of my own book and was surprised to find the same symbols, but in another order. Only the Oval is completely identical to Adamski’s.” Prof. Homet went on to add that Flying Saucers were not his field of interest or expertise.


When the U.S. Government Quietly Watched a Man Who Said He Met Aliens

Having shared with you the story of how and why the FBI took an interest in the antics of Contactee George Adamski, I thought I would give you the story of how the FBI took interest in another famous Contactee, George Van Tassel. Born on 12 March 1910 in Jefferson County, Ohio, George Wellington Van Tassel maintained that he experienced face-to-face contact with very human-looking alien entities following a claimed encounter in August 1953 near his Yucca Valley home in California. The complete history of Van Tassel’s exploits with apparent extraterrestrials is highly bizarre, involving weird accounts of meetings with imaginatively named aliens, including Numa of Uni Ah-Ming of Tarr Rondolla of the Fourth Density and Zolton, the Highest Authority in the Sector System of Vela. According to the now-declassified records of the FBI on Van Tassel, before moving to Yucca Valley in 1947, he was employed by the Douglas Aircraft Corporation in Santa Monica and Hughes Aircraft, where he worked in an assistant capacity to Howard Hughes. He also worked – the FBI learned – for both Universal Airlines and Lockheed. Exactly what it was that prompted Van Tassel to uproot his family and transfer them to Yucca Valley is something now lost to history. However, along with his wife and children, Van Tassel soon settled into his new surroundings: his famous (or perhaps infamous would be a better description!) cave under Giant Rock – an area leased from the Government.

The image of a 20 th Century family living in a cave situated beneath a sixty-foot-high rock, twenty-eight miles from Joshua Tree, California, cannot fail to conjure up the scenario of a prehistoric family struggling to live in less-than-friendly conditions. Always resourceful, however, the Van Tassels soon began to earn a comfortable living from an airstrip they rented – the Giant Rock Airport – and a small restaurant. As time passed, Van Tassel began to improve the family’s living facilities and the cave became a friendly environment. Fully furnished, it was equipped with electricity, had its own supply of water, a large library, and, as the journalist Ed Ritter noted in 1954, “a comfortable living room where [Van Tassel] studies and entertains guests.”

As a result of his alleged August 1953 encounter, Van Tassel compiled the first issue of what he titled Die Proceedings of the College of Universal Wisdom, a small journal that served as a mouthpiece for not only Van Tassel but for his supposed cosmic friends, too. In the first issue, Desca, like Rondolla, also of the Fourth Density, urged Van Tassel’s followers (whose number would very quickly reach four figures) to “remove the binding chains of limit on your minds, throw out the barriers of fear [and] dissipate the selfishness of individual desire to attain physical and material things.” In the edition of the Verrigtinge dated 1 December 1953, Van Tassel stated that, less than a month previously, a “message was received from the beings who operate the spacecraft,” with orders from Ashtar, “the Commandant of Space Station Schare” (pronounced Share-ee) to contact the office of Air Force Intelligence at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio. Van Tassel went on to advise the Air Force that: “The present destructive plans formulated for offensive and defensive war are known to us in their entirety…the present trend toward destructive war will not be interfered with by us, unless the condition warrants our interference in order to secure this solar system. This is a friendly warning.”

Were Van Tassel’s contacts genuinely of unearthly origin? Were they the rants of a sadly deluded mind? Or were they possibly a part of a sophisticated Communist-inspired intelligence operation designed to disrupt the internal security of the United States? This third possibility was definitely of concern to a Yucca Valley resident who on 5 August 1954, wrote to the FBI suggesting that Van Tassel be investigated to determine if he was working as a Soviet spy. Seriously concerned that Van Tassel was either a witting or an unwitting player in an ingenious, but subversive, Communist plot, the FBI sought to ascertain the full picture. On 12 November 1954, Major S. Avner of the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations met with N. W. Philcox – who was the FBI’s point of liaison with the Air Force – to discuss the growing controversy surrounding Van Tassel. Three days later, Avner re-established contact with Philcox, and advised him that the Air Technical Intelligence Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base “has information on Van Tassel indicating that he has corresponded with them regarding flying saucers.”

Very probably this was a reference to the letter that Van Tassel wrote to ATIC at the request of the mysterious Ashtar, who had offered a “friendly warning” with respect to plans formulated for offensive and defensive war. As a result, and not surprisingly, the Air Force offered, “to furnish the Bureau with more detailed information.” One day after Major Avner of AFOSI spoke with Philcox, two Special Agents of the Los Angeles FBI office met with Van Tassel at his Giant Rock home. In a memorandum to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover dated 16 November 1954, the agents wrote: “Relative to spacemen and space craft, VAN TASSEL declared that a year ago last August, while sleeping out of doors with his wife in the Giant Rock area, and at about 2.00 a.m. he was awakened by a man from space. This individual spoke English and was dressed in a grey one-piece suit similar to a sweat suit in that it did not have any buttons, pockets, and noticeable seams. This person, according to VAN TASSEL, invited him to inspect a spacecraft or flying saucer, which had landed on Giant Rock airstrip. VAN TASSEL claimed the craft was bell shaped resembling a saucer. He further described the ship as approximately 35 feet in diameter and is now known as the scout type craft. Aboard this craft was located three other male individuals wearing the same type of dress and identical in every respect with earth people.”

The FBI continued: “VAN TASSEL claims that the three individuals aboard the craft were mutes in that they could not talk. He claimed they conversed through thought transfers, and also operated the flight of the craft through thought control. He stated that the spokesman for the group claimed he could talk because he was trained by his family to speak. The spokesman stated that earthmen are using too much metal in their everyday work and are fouling up radio frequencies and thought transfers because of this over use of metal. According to VAN TASSEL, these individuals came from Venus and are by no means hostile nor do they intend to harm this country or inhabitants in any manner. He declared they did not carry weapons, and the spacecraft was not armed. He mentioned that a field of force was located around the spacecraft which would prohibit anything known to earth men to penetrate. VAN TASSEL claims this craft departed from the earth after 20 minutes and has not been taken back since.”

Van Tassel added that, “through thought transfers with space men,” he had been able to ascertain that a third world war was on the horizon, which was likely to be “large” and “destructive” that much of this correlated directly with certain biblical passages that the war would not be “universal” and that the “space people are peace loving and under no circumstances would enter or provoke a war.” And to illustrate their benevolence towards humankind, the aliens, Van Tassel told his FBI visitors, had bestowed upon him some remarkable data, including information relating to the way in which the human lifespan could be extended to anywhere between three hundred and fifteen hundred years. “This principle was not developed by Van Tassel,” said the FBI. Van Tassel then described his newsletter to the FBI agents, as J. Edgar Hoover was informed:

“In connection with his metaphysical religion and research, he publishes bi-monthly a publication in the form of a booklet called PROCEEDINGS OF THE COLLEGE OF UNIVERSAL WISDOM, YUCCA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA. He declared this publication is free and has grown from an original mailing list of 250 to 1,000 copies. VAN TASSEL stated that he sends his publication to various individuals, Universities, and Government Agencies throughout the world. He declared this publication is forwarded to the Federal Bureau of Investigation at Washington, D.C. He stated that he has donated 10 acres of his ranch holdings to the college. He mentioned that many of the buildings will be made free of metal which will be keeping within the request of the spacemen.”

Particularly eye opening was the FBI’s concern about who was funding Van Tassel’s operations, on what was certainly a large scale: “[Van Tassel] declared that for the most part he secures money for his needs of life, for the furtherance of his religion, research, and college through the generosity of certain individuals, number about 100. He failed to identify any of these people. He also mentioned that he derives income from his airstrip and a very small restaurant which is located at Giant Rock. VAN TASSEL voluntarily stated that he is not hiding anything nor is he doing anything against the laws of this country in his research at Giant Rock. He voluntarily mentioned that he is a loyal American and would be available at any time to assist the Bureau. VAN TASSEL did not volunteer the names of any individuals whom he was soliciting for funds except his statement above that he sent his publications to various individuals, universities and Government agencies and also the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington, DC.”

At the conclusion of the interview, the two agents secured copies of Van Tassel’s Verrigtinge that were then forwarded to Washington for study and became the subject of a confidential report, that in part stated: “One of the pamphlets contains an article by Van Tassel claiming that Jesus Christ was born of space men and that the Star of Bethlehem was a space craft that stood by while Jesus was born.” As a result of his growing reputation as someone with detailed knowledge of alien intelligence, Van Tassel became increasingly in demand on the lecture circuit, where he espoused at length on his dealings with extraterrestrials, their intentions for the human race, and their overall philosophy. On 17 April 1960, Van Tassel gave a lengthy speech at the Phipps Auditorium, Denver, Colorado, having been invited by the Denver Unidentified Flying Objects Investigative Society. To ensure that the lecture was a success, the society took out advertising time on local radio, that caught the attention of the Denver FBI, who subsequently directed a special agent to attend and report back the details of Van Tassel’s talk, which he did and in great detail: “The program consisted of a 45 minute movie which included several shots of things purported to be flying saucers, and then a number of interviews with people from all walks of life regarding sightings they had made of such unidentified flying objects. After the movie GEORGE W. VAN TASSEL gave a lecture which was more of a religious-economics lecture than one of unidentified flying objects.”

From then on, Van Tassel was only watched on a few occasions – and in relation to matters of no particular interest. He died in 1978.


Controversies behind George Adamski and Joao Martins.

During the fifties, in the middle of the Cold War, the feeling was the possibility of a Nuclear war. The fear of WWIII was real.

In 1951, “The Day the Earth Stood Still” debut in the theaters. The story involves a humanoid alien that comes to Earth to deliver a message that the human race needs to leave in peace or the planet will perish.

It was a similar message delivered by the Venusian Orthon to Adamski.

Controversies behind George Adamski

Throughout the 1950s and 60s, Adamski presented several photos of flying saucers, but some later proved hoaxes.

The most memorable one possibly involved a surgical lamp and that the landing struts were light bulbs. In other photos, Adamski used a streetlight or the top of a chicken brooder.

Once, George Adamski announced that he received the invitation to a secret audience with Pope John XXIII and earned a “Golden Medal of Honor” from His “Holiness.”

In Rome, tourists can purchase precisely the same medal with a cheap plastic box.

Controversies behind João Martins and the Media

On May 7, 1952, the reporter João Martins and photographer Ed Keffel were at Quebra-Mar on Rio de Janeiro’s west zone to cover couples seeking a deserted beach date.

After hours of waiting for the opportunity to interview or shoot photos of romantic couples, they claim seen a blue-gray flying object circular appeared before them.

The UFO made evolutions in the sky for about a minute, and Ed Keffel took five photographs.

They rushed to the lab in time to be published in the “Diário da Noite,” a sensationalist tabloid. By the morning, the people could see it on the first page.

The next morning, many militaries came to inspect the photos, including colonel Jack Werley Hughes, who believed the images were authentic from the US Embassy.

Eight days later, the magazine “O Cruzeiro” from the same group releases an extra eight pages with photos from what today is known as the Barra da Tijuca UFO Incident.

Are The UFO Photos Captured in Barra da Tijuca A Hoax?

But years later, other members from the magazine’s staff came forward to confirm that initially, it should be a joke inside the office.

A crowd demanded the release of the “news” by Ed Keffel and Martins’ arrival in the newsroom.

Things got out of hand. They photographed an object in a studio with double exposure.

Leao Gondim de Oliveira, director of the magazine, asked for an analysis of the negatives for Carlos de Melo Éboli, a criminal expert at the Institute of Criminalistics of Guanabara.

The investigation concluded that the shadows of elements on the scene were divergent. In the fourth photo, the environment’s shadow appears from right to left, and the flying saucer from left to right.

The opinion of the Institute of Criminalistics of Guanabara, however, never became public.

The director also declined to accept an offer from Kodak, Rochester, United States, to analyze the negative authenticity.

The magazine sales with the subject “Flying Saucers” were high. Years later, the event in Palomar spread for three issues, in 19 pages total.

According to Antônio Accioly Netto, former director of the magazine, “O Cruzeiro” had the motto: “the truth gets truer when exposed with a reasonable dose of fantasy.”

João Martins and Ed Keffel covered the UFO subject in a large number of articles for “O Cruzeiro”.


A star gazer is born

Adamski chronicled his alleged adventures in several books. The first, Vlieënde bakkies het geland (1953), coauthored with Desmond Leslie, recounted his chat with the Venusian. Widely read at the time, it later gained a new generation of fans in the trippy 1960s.

Adamski’s 1955 sequel, Inside the Space Ships, described further meetings, not only with the Venusian but also with emissaries from Mars and Saturn. In Adamski’s telling, every planet in our solar system was populated with human-like inhabitants, as was the dark side of the earth’s moon.

In the 1955 book, Adamski claimed that his new friends took him aboard one of their scout ships, flew him to an immense mother ship hovering over the earth, gave him a ride around the moon and treated him to a colorful travelogue about life on Venus.

Along the way, he was also tutored by a space man he called “the master.” The master, who was said to be nearly 1,000 years old, shared the secrets of the universe with Adamski, only some of which he was allowed to divulge back on earth.

Preposterous as his stories seemed, Adamski became an international celebrity and lectured widely. Queen Juliana of the Netherlands raised a public stir after inviting him to her palace in 1959 to discuss extraterrestrial doings. Adamski supposedly claimed a secret 1963 meeting with the pope, as well.

Adamski soon had followers all over the planet. But not everybody was …read more


George Adamski: Aliens, the FBI, and the Air Force

It was on Thursday, November 20, 1952 that the controversial and infamous UFO Contactee, George Adamski, claimed a face to face encounter with an alleged extraterrestrial named Orthon. The location was near to Parker, Arizona. Also along for the ride were George Hunt Williamson (who was even more controversial than Adamski, and for a variety of highly dubious reasons, including smuggling), Adamski’s secretary Lucy McGinnis and Alice Wells. The latter was the “…owner of the property where Adamski gave lectures on Universal Law and the café where he flipped burgers to pay the rent,” as good mate Greg Bishop describes it in his article “Tracks in the Desert.” You can find the article in Greg’s book, Wake Up Down There! Around 8:00 a.m., the group rendezvoused with Al and Betty Bailey. So the story went, it was very much on a hunch that the group headed out to Parker.

Everyone was hungry, so breakfast was the first order of the day. It was followed by a scan of the skies for UFOs. How incredibly convenient that one such craft – of a “cigar”-like shape – allegedly turned up, and which Betty raced to film. She failed to do so, however, because she was too excited – or so we’re told. Adamski informed the group – his ego overflowing – that the aliens had come to see hom. Die resultaat? McGinnis and Al Bailey drove Adamski down a small road, in the direction of the craft. Adamski soon got out of the car, ordering the pair to return to the rest “as quickly as possible…and watch for anything that might take place.”

Well, what supposedly happened next is that a number of military jets quickly appeared on the scene, something which allegedly caused the crew of the UFO to hit the gas and get the hell out of Parker. Not to worry, though: another UFO – a “beautiful small craft” – soon took its place. Not only that, it landed. Out of the craft walked a very human-like ET who waved genially in Adamski’s direction. Adamski later stated: “I fully realized I was in the presence of a man from space – a human being from another world!” His name, Adamski said, was Orthon. And he came from Venus. Yes, really. Venus. Wat ook al. There was the usual Contactee-driven discussion about the perils of atomic weapons and Armageddon, after which Orthon walked back to his craft and get on the road, so to speak.

Even more, ahem, “convenient,” Williamson had brought with him some Plaster-of-Paris (as we all do when we got for a drive in the desert, right?) and was able to make casts of Orthon’s footprints. Williamson would say (in his 1954 book, Other tongues, Other Flesh): “I could see where the space being had scraped away the topsoil in order to get more moist sand that would take the impressions from the carvings on the bottom of his shoes. The carvings on the shoes must have been finely done for the impressions in the sand were clear cut.”

The saga of Orthon became one of the central points in Adamski’s tales, books, lectures, and conferences. Far less well known, however, is the fact that Adamski also shared his thoughts and revelations concerning Orthon with none other than the FBI and the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations.

On January 12, 1953, an agent of the FBI and one of the AFOSI turned up at Adamski’s California home. They were actually there to chase down a rumor suggesting that Adamski had in his possession a strange contraption which could destroy aircraft. Our aircraft. It turns out that wires had gotten crossed somewhere. The man who was making claims of possessing this aircraft-destroying technology was actually not Adamski at all. It was one Karl Hunrath, a UFO investigator who – along with friend and fellow-saucer-seeker, Wilbur Wilkinson – vanished under mysterious circumstances in November 1953. And never to be seen again.

But, such was Adamski’s still-ever-present ego, after putting the two agents right on the Hunrath affair he launched into his experiences with Orthon. The FBI files on Adamski and Orthon are in the public domain (thanks to the Freedom of Information Act) and state the following: “At a point ten and two-tenths miles from Desert Center on the road to Parker and Needles, Arizona, [Adamski] made contact with a space craft and had talked to a space man. Adamski stated that he, [deleted] and his wife Mary had been out in the desert and that he and the persons with him had seen the craft come down to the earth. Adamski stated that a small stairway in the bottom of the craft, which appeared to be a round disc, opened and a space man came down the steps. Adamski stated he believed there were other space men in the ship because the ship appeared translucent and [he] could see the shadows of the space men.”

Adamski also revealed that the alien was “over five feet in height, having long hair like a woman’s and garbed in a suit similar to the space suits or web suits worn by the US Air Force men.” Adamski also informed the FBI and AFOSI agents that he conversed with Orthon by means of sign language, but felt that his mind was being “read.” As evidence of this, Adamski said that as he was about to take a photograph of the aliens’ craft, the humanoid “motioned” him to stop. Adamski told the agents that he took his photograph regardless, but that this was not to the liking of Orthon, who grabbed the material evidence out of Adamski’s hands and soared off into the sky.

Adamski’s adventures with the aliens were not over, however. Once again, according to the FBI: “Adamski further advised that he had obtained plaster casts of the footprints of the space man and stated that the casts indicated the footprints had designs on them similar to the signs of the Zodiac. On January 12, 1953, Adamski advised that on December 13, 1952, the space ship returned to the Palomar Gardens and came low enough to drop the [film negative] which the space man had taken from him, Adamski, and had then gone off over the hill. Adamski stated that when he had the negatives developed at a photo shop in Escondido, California, that the negative that the space man had taken from him contained writing which he believed to be the writing of the space men. Adamski furnished the writer with copies of the space writing and photographs of the space ship.”

From another source, however, the FBI was told that: “The photographs were taken by setting the camera lens at infinity, which would sharpen the background of mountains and trees and blurs the saucer, which was probably strung on a thin wire. [Source] advised that if the camera were set at infinity the wire would not show.”

And, that seems like a very good place to stop – and to move on from George and his photos. None of which impressed the FBI or the Air Force, at all.


9 Elizabeth Klarer Conceives An Alien Child On Another Planet


At around the same time that Adamski was making his claims in the late 1950s, in South Africa, Elizabeth Klarer would state not only that she made contact with an alien life-form but that she had gone to his home world and conceived a child with him. [2] In fact, many skeptics would point out how many details of her claims were almost identical to those of Adamski.

According to Klarer, she successfully &ldquocalled down&rdquo the alien she called &ldquoAkon,&rdquo who would arrive in his scout ship. From there, they would transfer to the main mother ship and then travel to Meton, Akon&rsquos home planet, which, according to Klarer, was in the Alpha Centauri system.

However, the son they conceived would remain with Akon on Meton. As you might imagine, this did little for Klarer&rsquos credibility. She would nevertheless stick to her story, despite the fact that she was almost universally not believed.
