Introduction

The use of music and cadence in all their forms to codify and enhance spiritual awareness long predates all forms of monotheistic belief. Although it is arguable that the use of music in a conventional sacred setting dates from at least 3000 years ago with the founding of Judaism, for the sake of both clarity and brevity I will concentrate on its use within Christianity, particularly the Roman Catholic Church. That said, the music was originally in a form that would scarcely be recognised today; rather, it consisted of tuneless monophonic chants. However, a gradual evolutionary process gradually led to the introduction of polyphonic music which was originally strenuously resisted by the church fathers because they regarded this as in some way frivolous and not entirely in keeping with their serious message.

“Beware of the false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:15, King James Bible)

Phenomena, (i.e. actual events that can be defined as being in some way unusual or strange), manifest in various ways, some are obvious and some are not. In this article I present some of the scandalous ploys used by various self-styled ministers and pastors, all purveyors of one brand of Christianity, who have become very rich indeed through what amounts to a shameless confidence trick cloaked in a veil of piety and religion. This is the first time I have ever quoted the Bible at the start of an article, but I did so deliberately because these wise words describe with remarkable precision exactly what is happening here.

Foreword.

I have been involved with the subject of Ufo’s and Ufolgy almost since the very beginning of the phenomenon, which from our perspective was the early 1950’s, although the origins of Ufology seem to date back to the beginnings of the human race. In that time I have witnessed almost seismic changes occur in how it is viewed by the public.

This has included everything from the assumption that anyone who believed it possible was certifiable, to puzzlement, then cautious acceptance and eventually indifference. My own views have changed markedly as well: where originally I was all for the extraterrestrial hypotheses (ETH), over time this altered to the psychosocial hypothesis, then finally that it is all part of the much wider subject of the paranormal with all that implies.

I say that based on my own ‘hands on’ experiences in both Ufology and the paranormal and have encountered many examples where there was absolutely no difference in what was being described other that in the circumstances surrounding the encounter and the inclinations of the person(s) involved. In addition to my own investigations I have discussed both subjects and how they overlap with many knowledgeable people and experiencers, but, as is the nature of the subject, there are still parties in both camps unable to see the connections between the two and make no mistake about it, they are there if you look!

In this article I consider a few of the anomalies presented by both the extraterrestrial and psychosocial hypothesis. I also try to make the case that even if ETs are viable, they might not even originate in this universe. From the perspective in this article I play Devil’s Advocate and ask a few rather awkward questions.

Dr. Robert Lanza, who was selected by Time magazine as one of the world’s 100 most influential people last year, believes science must recognize the importance of human consciousness.
Quantum physics has proven contradictory to classical, Newtonian physics, setting scientists on the search for a “Theory of Everything” to bridge the chasm threatening to swallow any confidence we have in our scientific understanding of the world.

Forget the hype that vegan food tastes like cardboard, it must be good if the company Google is seeking to buy out a faux cheeseburger company.
As reported by The Information, an unconfirmed report has it that Google recently tried to purchase Impossible Foods, a startup founded by Stanford University professor Patrick Brown. The offer, reported to be around $200 to $300 million, was turned down, however.

A government-backed study recently published in the UK has equated “conspiracy theorists” with violent terrorists, saying that belief in alternative viewpoints could be a warning sign of terrorist activity. The author of the study, Quassim Cassam, a professor of philosophy at the University of Warwick, also said that people who believe in alternative viewpoints have a potential of joining ISIS.
