They call them 'The Others.' They're gods, with a little g. - Tom Delonge
On the topic of "why this guy?" (Why Delonge?), he insisted on telling the entire story. There was an opportunity for him to go to a rare company celebration for employees undertaking secret government technology contracts.He knew exactly who these people were and what they do (I assume he means propulsion and weapons research). He talked to people there and pitched everyone his idea about reversing people's attitudes towards the military-industrial complex. He didn't mention UFOs at first, but people seemed interested and he managed to get other meetings.

Sorry, but this is a bit of old news.

He said similar things here on ATS.
Why are we here? Probably because we all believe some of the same stuff.
....I am trying to make major motion pictures that will be Internationally played and discussed. This is the biggest form of communication on the planet. But to do that we need to create a path of success with our story to get the 200 million dollars that somebody else will pay to have it made. Its hard. Art is our biggest export. If a tweet would have the same effect Id do that. People respond to films, books and events... and if it builds over time, it will be massively communicated.

Yup. I guess the question is, is he looking to get rich or fund more research? I'll wager a bit of both. I have no problem with TTSA making enough money to pay for their time (salary etc) but they have to reinvest into things that matter and advance the field.

I used to really respect Knapp as a journalist and researcher; now he has proven to be just like all the other charlatans. I guess it's no wonder He is a George Noorey clone.
Jason Colavito - The Skeptical Xenoarchaeologist
Over the weekend, Tom DeLonge of To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science posted a speculative thread on Twitter in which he discussed his growing belief that a genetically “advanced” race of “ultra-terrestrials” have been on Earth since “Lemuria and Atlantis times” and were the inspiration for the angels and gods of early mythologies. He walked it back in part, suggesting that he was merely “thinking out loud,” but the specific argument he used should be familiar to most of you reading this blog.
1. I’ve often wondered- What if there was a genetically advanced race (looks like us) but smarter and way more evolved...

2. what if they have been here since the Ancient Greek, Lemuria and Atlantis times? Would they be telepathic? Would they be the root of historical accounts of Angels and Greek Gods? I guess I’d call them “Ultra-Terrestrials” and stop calling them “alien” ....

?I’m sure you recognize this as the core of Theosophy, in which Helena Blavatsky posited that human-like beings from other dimension versions of other planets—i.e. ultra-terrestrials—came to Earth in the distant past and taught the “root races” of Lemuria and Atlantis the arts of civilization. Later known as Ascended Masters, these beings had psychical powers such as telepathy and in later Theosophical views they traveled between planets in their fiery chariots, which presaged UFOs by several decades.
The specific claims that DeLonge discusses in his tweet are nearly identical to those made by Theosophists Annie Besant and C. W. Leadbeater in their 1913 book Man: Whence, How and Whither. In that book, they discussed Venusians traveling to Earth in their fiery chariots, how the ancient gods and heroes like Heracles and Buddha were beings from the Moon, Mars, and other planets, and how people alive at present embodied these ultra-terrestrial beings.
I sincerely doubt that DeLonge read Besant and Leadbeater. But Theosophical ideas were highly influential and appear in works like those of Erich von Däniken, who credulously accepted Theosophical ideas in his early books. For example, in Gods from Outer Space, he wrote that the Book of Dzyan, a text forged by Helena Blavatsky, predated humanity.
DeLonge is quite clearly showing his familiarity with 1970s paperback fringe history books, which he has said on several occasions formed the basis of his understanding of ufology. It’s also difficult not to think that there is a little bit of influence here from Peter Levenda, DeLonge’s writing partner who has been a longtime student of the occult and has long been suspected of being the true author of the Simon Necronomicon, whose sequels’ copyrights are registered under his name.

You know what seriously annoys me? That someone would come on ATS and post their story like this...and then poof....disappear. Tom DeLonge stuck around for a whopping 30 days. Posted 1 (2?) thread(s).... Then I guess he felt ATS wasn't worth his continued attention? Maybe he felt it served its purpose? Found a better forum? I don't know....but when you read his first two sentences -
