Explanations For UFOs

Over the years, many explanations have been put forward to try to ‘solve’ the UFO enigma. Some sound very convincing, and others sound like a science fiction novel gone wrong. Not surprisingly, there never seems to be an answer that satisfies everyone.

At the dawn of ufology the USAF used experts to consider all manner of natural and man-made phenomena that might cause witnesses to think they had seen a UFO. The cases that remained unexplained were (a) regarded as the result of insufficient information being available for an adequate explanation, (b) ignored as implausible, or (c) were the work of hoaxers.… Read the rest

The Pier Fortunato Zanfretta Alien Encounter / Abduction

via UFO Research Network zanfretta2

A private security guard was destined to have one of the most bizarre, and outright terrifying, encounters with extraterrestrial beings ever recorded.

On the frigid, moonless night of December 6th, 1978, a 26 year-old night watchman, husband and father of two named Pier Zanfretta was on a routine patrol in the village of Torriglia, when he stumbled into a horrifying encounter with creatures from beyond our world that would forever change his life.

According to Zanfretta’s report, he was negotiating the dangerously icy roads in his patrol car, en route to the currently unoccupied country home of a client, Dr. Ettore Righi, when the engine, radio and lights of his vehicle all simultaneously, and inexplicably, died.

It was at that moment that Zanfretta claimed to have seen four lights moving around in the garden of the Righi house. Assuming that the strange beams were emanating from the flashlights of would-be thieves, Zanfretta quietly climbed out of his car with his revolver and flashlight at the ready.

UFOs, ETs, and Alien Abductions: What We Know

PurportedUFO2[disinfo ed.'s note: In this excerpt from UFOs, ETs, and Alien Abductions, psychologist and researcher Don Donderi examines the evidence and research from the past several decades on the changing nature of UFOs. He looks at why the scientific establishment takes a dim view of UFOs and abduction evidence and examines how the US government has collected and suppressed UFO evidence.]

What We Know

Twenty-first century media document the adventures of anthropologists, archaeologists, geologists, and naturalists who study every culture, geographical anomaly, and ecological niche on our planet. But one adventure excluded from this lively quest for knowledge is our study of the creatures who are studying us.89 Science and the media largely ignore our own efforts to understand the extraterrestrial exploration of our planet and the extraterrestrials’ study of ourselves. The next chapters of this book aim to correct that omission. This chapter summarizes what we know about UFOs; chapter 9 explains why science and the media ignore UFOs; and chapter 10, which outlines the recent history of our social and political response to UFOs, concludes by proposing how we should deal with UFOs, ETs, and alien abductions.… Read the rest

Protect Yourself With Alien Abduction Insurance

If you are one day abducted by aliens and impregnated, who will pay for your baby? Wikipedia explains:

Alien abduction insurance is an insurance policy issued against alien abduction. The insurance policy is redeemed if the insured person is abducted by aliens.

A policy normally costs around $150 per $1.5 million in coverage, and policy offerings vary from $10,000 to $10 million. Some companies offer policies for alien pregnancy, alien examinations and death caused by aliens.

The very first company to offer UFO abduction insurance was the St. Lawrence Agency in Altamonte Springs, Florida. The company says that it has paid out at least two claims. Over 20,000 people have purchased the insurance.

Prominent policyholders have included Shirley MacLaine and a Harvard University professor who has written on aliens. The Heaven’s Gate religious group had purchased alien abduction insurance before their mass suicide.

If Religion is No Longer Adequate…What About UFOs?

The media is a’buzz with the Office of the Dali Lama’s recent statements regarding organized religion. A FaceBook message posted on September 24th presented the following provocation for fundamentalist and arm chair devotees:

” The reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate.”

Nor was it ever so, and Buddhism has long held to this fact in its diverse applications of the simple monikor – If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him.

So let’s move past any undue shock over those statements and get straight to the UFOs. In 1992 John E. Mack, the noted Harvard Professor who specialized in abduction experiences, had the opportunity to meet with the Dali Lama and discuss his views on the UFO phenomenon. Central to this is Mack’s theory, similar to that of Jacques Vallee, that whatever is behind the UFO phenomena, and specifically abduction experiences, is central to changing our perceptions of reality and the progress of our culture.

It is interesting to hear Mack discuss the difference in how the Buddhist world view integrates these experiences, juxtaposed with how the ‘Western materialist’ mindset faces these anomalous encounters:
