So far, in this book Levenda is clearly saying the UFO phenomenon is related to mystical, religious and or prophetic realities.
My feeling is, Levanda clearly ISN'T stating anything that hasn't been stated before.
""… the abduction is carried out by acolytes of the Unknown God, the Alien God, and the experience is seen through a scrim of sexual manipulation and psychic dislocation. The abductees become an altar in a new Black Mass as the alien forces push their way into their consciousness, impatient and insistent, using whatever sublimated or repressed material they can find buried in their memories or fantasies.""
All we need is now some expensive lectures about the hidden teachings of this new religion. For 1000 $ you can overcome the alien/god negative energies.
"… the abduction is carried out by acolytes of the Unknown God, the Alien God, and the experience is seen through a scrim of sexual manipulation and psychic dislocation. The abductees become an altar in a new Black Mass as the alien forces push their way into their consciousness, impatient and insistent, using whatever sublimated or repressed material they can find buried in their memories or fantasies."" This is in contradiction to the first book (Chasing Shadows). There it's the Russians that stage (at least a part of) the abductions. What is the context of this quote?
For the rest: People are absolutely infatuated with the idea that we cannot know and that we had better not know about any phenomena that are not accepted by the masses, be that UFOs, God(s), souls, ghosts, psychic powers, etc. This will have to change if we ever want to find real answers and have a future as a civilization. I'll go with the saying "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic". For me this explains a large part of the Phenomenon.
Furthermore it is obvious through mathematics that there is a higher order governing existence and there are enough indications that there is an afterlife and a spiritual world. But I do not think that it is a lack of spiritual understanding (or even the lack of believe in spiritual phenomena) that prevents us from finding out whether we are being visited by lifeforms from other planets in this universe (as opposed to demons from other dimensions). What we need for this is advances in the natural sciences.
While knowing how to keep vampires out of your house may be a useful skill that looks great in your CV, I think mixing spiritual phenomena with UFOs is absolutely NOT a must. Some E.T.s seem to have psychic powers and because the military leaders are die-hard materialists that's what baffles them most. So what. It is hardly their telepathic skills that got E.T.s here from their home planet. Technology is involved. And if it were their psychic powers alone that got them here, then I would rather qualify them as angels or demons. And that subject is sufficiently covered in numerous religions.
think your critique is going too far. Tom DeLonge never comes across the way you are implying here and Peter Levenda has given a good response to this type of reproach in a comment on Amazon. See here. But I will form my opinion after reading the book myself. Still waiting for the e-book, though, preordered from tothestars.media directly

This is spot on. I am reading the DeLonge/Levenda book now and it comes across as just a better structured and better written Gods of Eden. And that book was a purely speculative book about history. So what does that tell us about Levenda & DeLonge's "inside information"?
