Like it or not, and anyway you look at it, the GFL are here to stay.
And they're just as an intrinsic part of ufology as the contactee movement was in the 1950's and 1960's. Yes, their methodology and practices, not
to mention their claims, are sometimes excrutiatingly uncomfortable to read. But at least they manage to put a smile on even the most hardened
skeptic's face with their extravagant declarations. You have to love quotes such as this:
The Galactic Federation of Light was founded over 4.5 million years ago to prevent inter-dimensional dark forces from dominating and exploiting
this galaxy. At present, there are just over 200,000 member star nations, confederations or unions. Approximately 40% are humanoids and the rest are
varied forms of sentient beings. Most members of the Galactic Federation are fully conscious beings.
If most members are fully conscious, what does that make the rest? Comatose?
What has to be remembered is that the GFL, and the Ashtar Galactic Command etc., are operating in exactly the same way as a religion. And that is why
it is so dificult to argue logically with their proponents; to disagree with them is to openly distance your self from their beliefs, therefore you
are not with them, but against
them. It's a no win situation.
To their credit (and I can't believe I just typed that) they are dedicated in their pursuits. And, as I've mentioned several times previously, their
message of hope, light and love is admirable. Indeed, they consider their work a "divine service". It's just the source of their revelations I have
a problem with, that and what I believe to be fraudulent channlers who suplly these "communications". Belief is power.
I'm not defending them, but it has to be said that their founders have managed to utilise a very powerful set of principles and convictions and have
instilled in their members a strong, contextual foundation. Not easy to contend with, especially as the representatives of these organisations who
post on these boards seem to have a uniform, parrot-like ability to recount their creed, and seemingly without any neccessity for a deeper
understanding of their message. That, and a real belief in what they're told.
