Did an ancient, advanced civilisation rule the Earth? This very intriguing question will invite academic ridicule. Great authors like Erich von Däniken and Zecharia Sitchin have been questioned but the evidence in plain sight cannot be ignored. With the concept of pre-historic civilisations and monoliths spread all over the world comes the inevitable question as to who built them and how? For all practical purposes, our very own cave man was definitely not qualified for hi-tech construction. Or was it aliens visiting planet earth in flying saucers?
The US government’s interest in flying saucers, also known as UFOs, began in 1948 after a pilot named Kenneth Arnold claimed he saw nine crescent-shaped objects in the sky while flying near Mount Rainier in Washington. Arnold evoked images of “saucers skipping on water” to describe how they flew through the air, but a local newspaper misquoted him, and the term flying saucer was born.
World UFO Day is an awareness day for people to gather together and watch the skies for unidentified flying objects. The stated goal of the July 2 celebration is to raise awareness of “the undoubted existence of UFOs” and to encourage governments to declassify their files on UFO sightings.
Just what is an Unidentified Flying Object? An unknown and mysterious object in the sky for which no conventional scientific explanations can be found and believed by the more imaginative to be a vehicle carrying extraterrestrials. However, over a period of time as the sightings of mysterious objects increased, their shapes and sizes as narrated by the observers changed.
Are these so called Unidentified Flying Objects from another world, planet or solar system or to be a little more imaginative, do they belong to a dimension far removed from ours. The umpteen explanations however, defy scientific analysis and logic.
In the days before recorded history began, in fact even thousands of years before modern day humans can even imagine that life existed on earth our very own ancient scriptures like the Ramayana and the Mahabharata give descriptive analyses of airborne flying vehicles that travelled through space on word of command. Science fiction or science fact remaining in the realm of fruitless discussions because of absence of archeological and historical proof.
Another example of what could possibly have been a flying saucer was a moving star or perhaps an Unidentified Flying Object that was seen by the Three Wise Men of the East at the time of the Birth of Jesus Christ. From a scientific point of view, it could not have been a comet because comets are millions of miles away in space and their movement is vastly different from that of a moving star. So was the bright star over Bethlehem at the time of the birth of Jesus Christ an unidentified flying object. Certainly, a point to ponder.
In the world we live in today, seeing unidentified flying objects moving across our visible space would not be questioned as technology has made it possible to photograph and capture their size and the speeds at which they are reported to move. The Hudson Valley UFO sightings in USA are a case in point where one woman literally swore that the massive seven storey high unidentified flying object hovering outside her home responded to her telepathically when she wished that it would come a little closed to enable her to take a better photograph… believe it or not!
There is a whole volume of encyclopedic information that is literally waiting to be analysed, deciphered and understood, that could pave the way for the hitherto mysterious flying saucers or UFOs to merge with the daily life of the modern day degenerate homo sapien.
