The Facts on UFO’s and other Supernatural Phenomena (Harvest House, 1992), pp. 29-30
Are the “special messages” that the alleged extraterrestrials claim they are giving to mankind the same as those found in the world of the occult?
E. A. I. Mackay observes, “It is an interesting fact that the information gained due to human involvement with extraspacial entities in the field of ufology is almost exactly mirrored by what has been understood within the Esoteric [i.e., occult] fraternities from time immemorial.” (E.A.I. Mackay, “UFO Entities: Occult and Physical,” in Flying Saucer Review, Vol. 19, No. 2, p. 27)
No less an authority than John Keel observes that “the endless messages from the space people would now fill a library, and while the communicators claim to represent some other world, the contents of those messages are identical to the messages long received by mediums and mystics.” (Keel, Operation, p. 183)
So what are the messages from these advanced extraterrestrials deep in space? According to scores of books by contactees that we have read, they teach 1) that biblical religion is false and outdated; 2) that man must develop his psychic ability; 3) that we are at the threshold of a New Age of occult enlightenment; 4) that God and man or the creation are part of the same divine essence (pantheism) and 5) that extraterrestrial entities are now present to assist mankind in leaving the “old ways” and adjusting to the New Age of spiritual advancement. Nor should we neglect the recurring theme that some forms of drastic authoritarian social control may be necessary to assure the survival of this planet.
