UFO Religions

Mike’s not a ufologist, but FATE Magazine named Mike to its 2005 list of the 100 most influential people in the field. Mike is, however, a scholar in the fields of ancient near eastern religions. He’s also devoted more of his life than seems advisable to the scholarly study of western occultism and alternative religions oriented around the belief in aliens. Religion is religion — it’s all the same? Not true.

We’re working on the problem. We had to move the comments off site to a different location as part of the site re-do. Hopefully we’ll have a solution soon so I can see and reply to comments.

Easter Island Statue Technology: No Aliens Needed

Posted by on Apr 18, 2016 in _Paleobabble, _UFOreligions, Ancient Astronauts, Ancient Sites & Archaeology, Archaeology, pop journalism, Fringe History & Archaeology, Megaliths | 2 comments

Here’s an interesting recent piece on the ongoing research at Easter Island. Turns out (and this really isn’t that new) that there’s a lot more to the “heads” of Easter Island. The figurines have long torsos and petroglyphs.

They also provide evidence on how they were erected. Hint: no aliens needed.

UFOs in Medieval and Renaissance Art? Stop Believing Nonsense

Posted by on Apr 9, 2016 in _UFOreligions, Ancient Astronauts, Fringe History & Archaeology, UFOs in medieval art | 4 comments

I think it my intellectual duty to periodically (re-)introduce readers (and web searchers) to the work of art historian Diego Cuoghi. You know all those pictures you’ve seen on the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens show — the ones with UFOs in European paintings? Guess what … they aren’t UFOs.

Cuoghi is a real art historian. The rationale world is blessed that he has taken the time to show, via numerous examples, what these images are really showing. The objects in these paintings are not flying saucers / UFOs. They are well known to real art historians. Cuoghi is just a rare example of an art history professional that decided to answer the nonsense instead of just laugh at it.

Music on the Moon from Aliens?

Posted by on Mar 14, 2016 in _UFOreligions, Conspiracy Theory, Moon Anomalies | 3 comments

Not surprisingly, no.

Expat over at the Emoluments of Mars blog does the investigative work alien conspiracists just won’t do. The post reproduces an assessment by James Concannon among other items. Have a look — a very normal explanation.

John Podesta Wants Us To Believe Hillary Clinton Will Be Forthright on UFOs

Posted by on Mar 11, 2016 in _UFOreligions, ExoPolitics & Disclosure, UFOs | 3 comments

Hard to believe, I know. Here’s the headline from the UFO Chronicles: “John Podesta: I’ve Convinced Hillary Clinton To Declassify UFO Files” (Video).

Sure.  Now if he could only convince her to step away from the presidential race because she’s a felon (I speak here of the email/server scandal  … I know, “which scandal?”). Here’s a link from a left wing site that has adored Hillary in the past. It’s not political — it’s a little thing called federal law.

But of course Podesta is a Clinton hack, and she needs to occupy the oval office for this UFO promise to happen. If America elects a felon as president, I’m sure she’ll be completely honest about her efforts here. Just like the email scandal, the Benghazi scandal, her husband’s predatory behavior toward women, her magical Whitewater dealings, what her foundation actually does with the money (and where it comes from), etc. Who’s more gullible? Podesta or anyone who believes him?

News flash to Mr. Podesta. The people really in the know in Washington regarding UFOs don’t answer to elected officials. They may go through the motions, but the need-to-know establishment in that arena didn’t get to where they are through elections or appointments. They have their own pecking order and agenda.

PEERANORMAL Podcast Episode 1: Introducing the Show

Posted by on Mar 3, 2016 in _UFOreligions, Paranormal Phenomena, Peeranormal episodes, Podcasts | 35 comments

The inaugural episode of PEERANORMAL is now live.

PEERANORMAL is not just another podcast about the paranormal. It has a significant twist. As this first episode explains, PEERANORMAL introduces listeners to peer-reviewed research on all things generally considered paranormal: ghosts, PSI, ESP, NDEs, OBEs, UFOs, Forteana, alien abduction, cryptozoology, etc. Believe it or not, real research in real labs by real scientists and scholars gets published every year on all these topics and more.

In other words, other podcasts about the paranormal do speculation. PEERANORMAL is where listeners learn what’s real and what isn’t, and what credible researchers are doing to investigate the paranormal. Listen as we introduce the hosts (we will be adding other co-hosts) and the sorts of research and discussion you can expect.

We plan to do a show every month or two. Please subscribe to one of the feeds and support the podcast.
