Ok, we are getting off topic so perhaps this should be debated in a Christianity vs Catholic post however it all relates back to what 'aliens' are. It is quite obvious many are confused with Catholicism and Christianity - when I confess to Jesus my sins, I do not quote hale Mary's. Mary is a very special lady which I do believe, she gave birth to the Lord - however she is not all powerful like the Lord. I say simply I am sorry when I confess to Jesus. It does not state to say hail Mary anywhere in the bible, because it is simply a man-made fabrication of God's law.

Just read this article, found it fascinating, and thought I would share it here. Some very intriguing accounts in it that I haven't seen anywhere else. Have some of our supposedly 'premier' ufologists been lying to us by omission...yes they have.


Curiouser and Curiouser: ‘High Strangeness’ UFO Encounters. 
Gareth J. Medway

From Magonia 97, April 2008

The term ‘High Strangeness’ refers to those UFO cases where the witnesses do not merely claim to have sighted a mysterious light or unknown object which might have been an alien spacecraft, but also say that a variety of unusual things happened to them afterwards…

...You won’t find much about this in mainstream UFO books, but there is plenty of detail in the works of such writers as John Keel and Jacques Vallee. The question which is not often addressed is, are these cases aberrations, or typical?...

…If high strangeness cases are exceptional, it would have to be asked, why do this particular minority of witnesses choose to report their experiences to one of just a few investigators, such as John Keel? Surely it is more likely that, since most witness reports reach us at second hand by way of the investigators, most of the latter tend to edit out unwelcome details…

…If so, then we ought to be able to find some evidence for this censorship. Imbrogno and Horrigan’s Contact of the Fifth Kind, which is about high strangeness in the Hudson Valley, mentions that in an earlier book that Imbrogno had co-authored with Allen Hynek, they had avoided mention of abductions: “Only to a handful of people did we admit that there were abduction cases, and plenty of them … Dr. Hynek felt that UFO reports are hard enough to believe without adding the subject of abductions to the discussion.”…

…In other words, though seeming highly bizarre to the average person, once one has been studying the matter for years, it “may be considered fairly representative of the more detailed hard core of UFO reports.”...

..There were also some prints made by ripple-soled shoes with a ridge around the edge. Keel noted that prints of just this type had frequently turned up at UFO sites around the country. Years later came another ‘Looking Glass’ sequel: when the first astronauts walked on the moon, they wore boots which made identical ripple prints in the lunar dust...

…I take this to mean that the earlier investigators were solely concerned to collect evidence that UFOs are nuts-and-bolts alien spacecraft from Zeta Reticuli (or the Pleiades, or wherever), and ignored the high strangeness material as not supporting this viewpoint...

…Of course, it is the solid interstellar visitors that the book-buying public wants to read about, hence the fact that works promoting this hypothesis are often bestsellers, whereas few people have heard of Haisell…

…Enthusiasts of ‘Ancient Astronauts’ likewise make surreptitious alterations in their source materials… Be that as it may, Von Daniken omitted the tapir, also the statement that Orejona came from Venus (as opposed to the stars), since this too was no longer believable by the 1960s...

...To evaluate facts, you have to know what they are. Though people have often accused the government or the Air Force of concealing the truth about UFOs, I think the ufologists themselves have been partially suppressing it…

I also posted this on pimanders great thread, "Rendlesham Incident: A Test of Virtual Reality Projectors (Jacques Vallee)" which some here might enjoy. Clicky and read all of the above article--well researched and I think you will enjoy it. Now I gotta catch up here.

Thanks for that. Thats a gem!

I consider it of the utmost importance to know what the facts are.
When everyone is lieing to us, on all fronts, it makes it a challenge.
