My Personal Belief System
(and how it's been affected by UFOs)

Since 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.

I 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.

During 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.

As 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 and Reality.

At 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".

During 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.

I 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.

Then, when I used to go to Sunday morning mass with my parents, I'd come across certain passages in the Bible that always intrigued me.

For instance:

Jonah 1:15-17
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 three nights.

Exodus 13:21
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.

Acts 1:9-11
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."

Ezekiel 1:16-21
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 wheels.

For 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.

Let's 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.

I kept thinking that maybe Jonah had been taken aboard a vessel of some type...which then brought him to shore, a few days later.

I 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.

It 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.

So it would not be too surprising for me to find out that this is what lies behind the story of "Jonah and the whale".

In regards to the Bible and Jesus Christ, I personally believe that:

1. 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.

2. 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.

Furthermore, 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 belief.

3. 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.

I am no longer a practicing Catholic. I see myself being more spiritual than religious.

To think that this is all mysterious and that God is invisible, yet all-knowing and all-seeing...seems a bit much to swallow.

I 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.

A 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?

Since having witnessed so many UFO sightings, it has been hard for me to close those flood gates once they've been opened.

I've always found myself thinking "outside of the box"...and I guess that's where I'll always be.

My 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.

For years, I've had to hide these personal beliefs from others, for fear of being labeled crazy or mentally unstable.

It 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.

And I've had to live with that for a very long time.

But 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.

Ancient Aliens

I'm 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.

But 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 times.
