a very young age, I've always believed that there was
something else out there...aside from us humans. My interest
in Science Fiction and Outer Space was sparked by one
of the greatest moments in mankind's history...the day
that man first walked on the Moon. I remember watching
it LIVE on TV with my dad, back in July 1969...and that
image has always stuck in my mind.
20, 1969 - Buzz Aldrin on the Moon
even had toys that were space-related, such as Billy Blastoff,
a battery-operated astronaut who could walk and power
certain vehicles that came with him.
the late 1960's and early 1970's, I grew up watching The
Thunderbirds, Joe 90, UFO, Lost in Space and similar science
fiction programs for kids. One of my all-time favorites
was Space 1999.

I got older, I became more fascinated with outer space
and the possibilities that existed in regards to other
civilizations that might be visiting Earth. Although I
was glued to the TV and watched a lot of Science Fiction
programs, I knew damn well the difference between Television
the age of 10 years old (one year after I had my first
sighting), I decided to pick UFOs as a subject of interest
that I could research in depth. At that time, a TV show
called Project UFO aired and it was then that I first
heard the term "flying saucer".
my high school years, I would hear strange reports from
fellow students and some of my teachers, who said that
they had seen something weird in the sky. Since I was
already involved in collecting information on UFOs and
Flying Saucers, I decided to put together a book (my easy
access database, if you will) which would contain information
gathered by other researchers...information that could
help in answering some of the questions people would have
about UFOs and related matters.
never thought that anything would ever shake my so-called
"religious" beliefs, but when I set out to investigate
UFOs at an early age, I never knew what kind of repercussions,
if any, my research would have on something that had been
indoctrinated into my life.
when I used to go to Sunday morning mass with my parents,
I'd come across certain passages in the Bible that always
Then they took Jonah and threw him overboard, and the
raging sea grew calm. At this the men greatly feared the
Lord, and they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made
vows to him. But the Lord provided a great fish to swallow
Jonah, and Jonah was inside the fish three days and
And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar
of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night
in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they
might travel by day and by night.
After he said this, he was taken up before their very
eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. They
were looking intently up into the sky as he was going,
when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside
them. "Men of Galilee," they said, "why
do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus,
who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back
in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."
This was the appearance and structure of the wheels:
They sparkled like chrysolite, and all four looked alike.
Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel.
As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions
the creatures faced; the wheels did not turn about as
the creatures went. Their rims were high and awesome,
and all four rims were full of eyes all around. When the
living creatures moved, the wheels beside them moved;
and when the living creatures rose from the ground, the
wheels also rose. Wherever the spirit would go, they would
go, and the wheels would rise along with them, because
the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
When the creatures moved, they also moved; when the creatures
stood still, they also stood still; and when the creatures
rose from the ground, the wheels rose along with them,
because the spirit of the living creatures was in the
years, I thought about these Biblical writings, trying
to figure out what they meant. And it was only when I
would place them in the context of UFO reports that they
seem to make more sense to me.
take the story of Jonah and the whale, for example:
I did some research and found that it was impossible for
a man to be inside of a whale for three days because there
is no species of whale that can actually swallow a man
whole, and then spit him out. The largest whales only
eat plancton, which is microscopic in size compared to
that of a man.
kept thinking that maybe Jonah had been taken aboard a
vessel of some type...which then brought him to shore,
a few days later.
had read many reports of these black silhouettes that
were seen floating on the surface of the ocean during
the 1950s and 1960s. Some thought that maybe, they were
dealing with Soviet submarines. But whatever they were,
they always managed to disappear without a trace, leaving
the authorities dumbfounded.
is a known fact amongst UFOlogists that USOs (Unidentified
Submerged Objects) do exist, and they are of a non-terrestrial
origin. They're actually UFOs that have the ability to
submerge themselves in our world's oceans and lakes.
it would not be too surprising for me to find out that
this is what lies behind the story of "Jonah and
regards to the Bible and Jesus Christ, I
personally believe that:
Jesus was one of them...meaning he was an extra-terrestrial,
in every sense of the word. He was not of this Earth.
He had abilities that exceeded those of normal men, such
as the ability to walk on water, heal the blind with a
simple touch of his hand, feed a multitude of people with
a few fish and some bread, etc.
The Virgin Mary was artificially inseminated...which would
explain why she gave birth to Jesus, and yet remained
a virgin. In the context of UFOlogy, reports of Alien
Abduction cases have the same result where the women are
reported to be pregnant, and yet, have had no intercourse
with a man. I investigated such a case where this was
told to me by one of the women involved.
every depiction of the birth of Christ shows the "Star
of Bethlehem" above the manger, shining a bright
beam of light down onto them...which brings me to my third
The so-called "Star of Bethlehem" was a UFO,
and not a alignment of planets or a star. Stars were used
in navigation as reference points, which meant that they
never moved. This object was seen twice in the same day...and
it was seen moving across the sky as it guided the three
kings to the birthlace of Christ.
am no longer a practicing Catholic. I see myself being
more spiritual than religious.
think that this is all mysterious and that God is invisible,
yet all-knowing and all-seeing...seems a bit much to swallow.
tend to lean towards a belief that perhaps the Gods of
ancient times were really extraterestrials that came down
from the sky and taught us everything from how to make
tools to how to cultivate land and grow food.
particular race of beings from Zeta Reticuli believe that
the Universe is a supreme being. So who's to say what
is...and what isn't?
having witnessed so many UFO sightings, it has been hard
for me to close those flood gates once they've been opened.
always found myself thinking "outside of the box"...and
I guess that's where I'll always be.
views on UFOs and their possible link to Biblical events
differ from so many people that I found it hard to open
up and talk about it without fear of ridicule.
years, I've had to hide these personal beliefs from others,
for fear of being labeled crazy or mentally unstable.
is bad enough having to deal with the realization that
you may have witnessed visitations by cultures from other
planets without having to deal with the skepticism that
permeates around you.
I've had to live with that for a very long time.
more recently, I've been able to talk about this and express
my thoughts about UFOs in relation to Biblical events
thanks to a new television series called Ancient Aliens,
which airs on the History channel.
especially astonished by the fact that the experts on
the show have actually voiced the same beliefs I've had
for the last twenty years or so. It feels good to know
that I'm not alone in my beliefs, and that perhaps one
day, we'll be proven right.
for now, I consider myself to be an "Ancient Astronaut
Theorist"...joining the ranks of those who believe
that extraterrestrial visitors came to this planet in ancient
