Fact a Day: June 18th

The Facts on UFO’s and other Supernatural Phenomena (Harvest House, 1992, pp. 10-11)

How are UFOs impacting mankind?


Sociologist David Swift of the University of Hawaii observes that the underlying message of the UFO phenomenon is clear—that the creators of this “awesome object” (the UFO) have incredible knowledge and power. He concedes the common hope that such knowledge and power might be applied toward helping humanity solve its universal problems. “This is an alluring message, and it will become more attractive with each failure of conventional attempts to solve our complex problems. The thought of salvation from the sky is likely to grow in appeal.” (Davis Swift, “A Sociologist’s Reaction,” in Vallee, Messengers, p. 229)

But the UFO phenomenon simply does not behave like extraterrestrial visitors. It actually molds itself in order to fit a given culture. Their purpose is not open contact, in the sense that we would expect friendly contact from advanced civilizations in space. Rather, their goal seems to be psychological and social manipulation. A few of the leading UFO researchers have recognized this,…These researchers believe that the UFO entities are deliberately programming their human observers with false information in order to hide their true nature and purpose.
