the following is just a few recent articles pulled from a google news search.
The first article talks about a fellow called Jeff Peckman who is has been the instigator behind getting the people of Denver to vote on a thing called the “Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission”. The vote will happen in August this year and is suppose to put pressure on the US government for full disclosure.
The second article is about Henry W. McElroy, Jr, a retired State Representative to New Hampshire. There is this youtube getting around where he speaks about being privy to the UFO and Eisenhower connection. Not sure what to think about that one.
The third article is about the newly elected Prime Minister of England, David Cameron. Apparently he has promised to disclose any information to the British public concerning UFOs. Obviously, the pressure is on the government of England for the truth. My question is what truth and how will it be interpreted?
The fourth article is about how serious the ramifications of contact would be for society at large. They question is whether so called aliens are friend of foe is one that is being examined. Stephen Hawking recently said that he wouldn’t trust them and humanity should be very cautious when it comes to accepting intelligent life out there! It is a question that should be investigated as to how our society will react in intelligent beings not of this world have made contact. The Vatican and the Royal Society of London have had conferences about the possible implications. According to the source the UN have a resolution on this matter!
The fifth article is perhaps the most intriguing of all. It proposes that intelligent life may not necessarily be from another planet, out there somewhere, but may in fact be from another dimension and native to our planet. If this train of thought increases in the study of UFOlogy then as Christians we really have to answer spiritual questions. This is the first time I have heard within the UFO movement that there be a possibility that Aliens/UFOs may not be from outer space at all, but may actually be closer to us than we think, just in another realm.
On a personal note. I was talking to a friend the other day about this and he said it seemed to him that ‘Aliens’ are just modern day fairies, elves, trolls and the like. Most people put them down to myth. But the thing is myth has an element of truth to it.
Gary Bates, author of “Alien Intrusion – UFOs and the evolution connection” is a creationist who has gone out on a limb on a topic that most Churches and Pastors really don’t want to talk about. You can find out what he has to say on this phenomena HERE.
Anyway, here are the articles.
A group of American citizens have accused the US government of covering up documents that prove the existence of extraterrestrial life on other planets.
Jeff Peckman, a member of the Denver Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission, claims Washington has calculatedly covered up the existence of aliens, alien abductions and extraterrestrial cures for cancer, The Herald Sun reported on Saturday. [source]
Henry W. McElroy, Jr, retiring State Representative to New Hampshire, declared this week that former U.S. President Eisenhower was briefed about the presence of extraterrestrial intelligent beings on Earth. McElroy also said that the document he viewed while at the State Legislature made referrence to the opportunity for Eisenhower to meet the alien visitors.
This new revelation could result in timely support for the August 2010 election on the Denver ballot initiative to create an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission. The proposed commission would collect credible evidence and whistle-blower testimony regarding UFOs and visitors to Earth of extraterrestrial origin. It would then share such evidence with the public through the Denver city government web site at no cost to the city budget. The aim of the commission is to brief the public with information previously viewed only by a privileged few. [source]
Britain’s new conservative Prime Minister, David Cameron, might trump U.S. politicians on a galactic scale. According to a 2009 report by BBC, "David Cameron has vowed to publish any secret files that may exist on UFOs if he becomes prime minister. Speaking at one of his regular Cameron Direct public meetings, he pledged to be ‘open and frank’ with any government knowledge about close encounters…" [source]
(April 28) — Famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking isn’t the only man concerned about the potential ramifications of an extraterrestrial presence on Earth.
Turns out, a growing number of people are becoming involved in "exopolitics," the study of the political ramifications of alien visitors — whether they be friend or foe — and how humans should prepare for either scenario.
Take Michael Salla, an international politics scholar who in 2001 started dedicating his time to exopolitics. Since then, Salla, an expert in conflict resolution, has been lobbying for extra transparency from the government regarding extraterrestrials.
[…]Luckily, for Salla and the others in this pioneering form of paranormal political science, they aren’t the only ones asking these questions.
"In the last six months, both the Vatican and the Royal Society of London have held astrobiological conferences studying the implications of life found on other worlds," he said.
Exopolitician Alfred Webre is confident that an alien discovery would have a major earthly impact. He believes that the politician or head of state who announces an encounter with an E.T. will have an incredible amount of political capital internationally.
[…]Bassett, who is organizing the X-Conference 2010, an exopolitical gathering May 7 to 9 in Washington, D.C., says that after a nation makes the initial announcement, others would promptly follow. But he admits, "This is a transcendent issue. Whatever country makes the announcement will get most of the historical attention."
Although Bassett believes any such announcement would be made by one nation, Webre says he and other exopoliticians have been talking with members of the U.N. General Assembly regarding U.N. Resolution 33/426, which is a proposal to set up a Department of Extraterrestrials Affairs. [source]

People who wonder about or even actively research the topics of UFOs and visitors from elsewhere sometimes begin with certain assumptions that may only be partially correct.
We might assume that if we are being visited, these intelligent beings are all biological life forms, though they might be quite different from humans.
We could also conclude that they are from another planet and they travel here aboard advanced spacecraft, possibly warping or surfing space-time in some way.
However, there are also theories and indications that, although those basic concepts might generally be accurate in some cases, there could be other developments going on as well.
For example, it might be possible that there are several kinds of intelligent visitors on Earth. Some researchers also suggest that certain unconventional beings might not be visitors at all, but somehow native to our planet, though they reside in hidden dimensions or operate in mysterious ways.
And even those who do travel here from a home world of some kind might also be able to visit us by slipping in and out of these mysterious dimensions without the need for sophisticated spacecraft. [source]
