https://www.skywatchtv.com/2021/06/10/kings-2/ CHINA has issued its deadliest warning yet as Beijing warned that the US will be “defeated” if the two superpowers go to war amid a tense stand-off over the South China Sea and Taiwan. China has pledged to rapidly defeat the US in a military conflict in one of the country’s most explicit warnings yet. China’s Global Times, which is seen as a Government news outlet, published an editorial revealing the threat in response to joint military drills carried out by the US. The US joined drills with Japan, Australia and France this week in an intended show of force against Beijing…

https://www.skywatchtv.com/2021/06/10/ancient-3/ While the scientific community debates Harvard astrophysicist Avi Loeb’s bold conjecture that our solar system has been visited by an advanced extraterrestrial civilization, philosopher Susan Schneider, who holds the Baruch Blumberg Chair, Library of Congress and NASA, preemptively upped the ante, suggesting that artificial intelligence exists out in the Universe, and it’s billions of years old. I do not believe that most advanced alien civilizations will be biological. I do not believe that most advanced alien civilizations will be biological,” says Susan Schneider of the University of Connecticut and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton .”The most sophisticated civilizations will be postbiological, forms of artificial intelligence or alien superintelligence.” Schneider is one of the few thinkers—outside the realm of science fiction— that have considered the notion that artificial intelligence is already out there, and has been for eons…

https://www.skywatchtv.com/2021/06/10/deception20/ Jesus spoke of a time of ὠδίνων “birth pains” prior to His return, and many of us believe we are currently in the throes (Matthew 24:8). Our late friend, Dr. Chuck Missler, has written, “What is fascinating about the idiom of childbirth and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is that they are both preceded by well-known signs given well in advance of the actual event. And yet, an ill prepared mother, like the skeptic, if she chooses to ignore those signs, will be ‘caught unaware’ when the child is born.”[i] Although Jesus already sits on His throne in heaven, He awaits the time His enemies will be completely vanquished (Hebrews 10:13). They will not go down without a fight, and they are going to take a lot folks with them. Among the nominal Church, the demonic realm has been demythologized and brushed aside. As we discuss in another entry, even most inerrancy-upholding denominations have lost some essential biblical theology concerning the supernatural administration of the Earth. There are “gods” hostile to humanity eager to bring their designs for the Earth to fruition. The popular belief in extraterrestrials, along with the worldwide sightings of UAP and UFOs, seems to indicate that this time draws near. The Bible predicts an unparalleled demonic deception prior to Christ’s return. We believe it has been developing for decades and the stage is now set. Because we live in an increasingly post-Christian society that has elevated scientists as the ultimate arbiters of truth, it seems likely that such an unprecedented deception will be clothed in the credibility of science. A recent Gallup poll asked, “Do you think that UFO’s have ever visited Earth in some form, or not?” The ambiguous phrasing of the question assumes the extraterrestrial hypothesis and yielded a whopping 51 percent of men and 40 percent of women who thought it was true.[ii] The 2002 Roper Poll on UFOs and Extraterrestrial Life found that 72 percent of Americans believe the government is not telling the public everything it knows about UFO activity, and 68 percent think the government knows more about extraterrestrial life than it is letting on.[iii] A 2008 Scripps UFO Poll reported that 56 percent of Americans believe it either “very likely” or “somewhat likely” that intelligent life exists on other planets.[iv] Many of these people expect extraterrestrials to have answers for the world’s spiritual, economic, and environmental woes. We believe this hope has been intentionally nurtured by deceptive supernatural forces. Historians write that “the floodgates opened”[v] on the UFO phenomenon only months prior to when Bible prophecy scholars also mark a decisive moment, the restoration of national Israel on May 14, 1948. The correlation is suggestive. Since the time of Israel’s reformation, there has been a near-exponential increase in UFO sightings and related phenomena like abduction. This has led an increasing number of theologians to the hypothesis that such entities play a pivotal role in the end-time deception predicted in Scripture. In his classic Biblical Demonology, Merrill Unger observed, “Demonism bears a striking relation to the doctrine of last things and all classes of mankind Jew, Gentile, and the church of God will be intimately and vitally affected by the last day upsurge of evil supernaturalism.”[vi] We believe it’s possible that Operation Trojan Horse will round the knee of its exponential curve as the sixth seal of the seven-sealed scroll is cracked, and the Earth will be led to believe the extraterrestrials have arrived en masse. As we established above, there is an ample exegetical basis to posit the atmosphere around the Earth as the abode of demons. Understanding their penchant for deception, why wouldn’t we deduce they are posing as space aliens to bolster a worldview hostile to Christianity? There are other interesting prophetic connections as well. Biblical scholar Robert Utley elaborates: In the NT the air is the realm of the demonic. The lower air (aēr) was seen by the Greeks to be impure and therefore the domain of evil spirits. Some see this use of “air” as referring to the immaterial nature of the spiritual realm. The concept of “the rapture of the church” comes from the Latin translation of I Thess. 4:17, “caught up.” Christians are going to meet the Lord in the midst of Satan’s kingdom, “the air,” to show its overthrow![vii] Whereas we are well within our rights to suggest anomalous aerial phenomena as a probable vehicle by which the end-time deception will be perpetrated, Utley’s mention of the rapture is also suggestive. Inherent in both the pretribulational and pre-wrath rapture positions is a massive worldwide disappearance of Christian believers that necessitates some sort of rationalization from the Antichrist and his authorities (1 Thessalonians 4:15–17). An explanation involving spaceships or something similar seems possible. In their book, UFO: End Time Delusion, Lewis and Schreckhise argue, “The rapture will be explained away with a mix of pseudoscience, New Age religion, and both fabricated as well as misinterpreted evidence that will seem to prove that the rapture is an alien invasion.”[viii] Interestingly, the film Knowing, starring Nicolas Cage, has already seeded this idea into popular consciousness.[ix] After the rapture, the ET explanation still has force. While much of the apocalyptic imagery in the book of Revelation is symbolic, one marvels concerning the demonic locust hordes associated with the fifth trumpet judgment (Revelation 9). Perhaps these monstrosities are the referents in Jesus’ allusions to otherworldly invaders (Luke 21:26)? If the Antichrist attempts to explain these horrific events, an “alien invasion” supplies persuasive explanatory power for the predicted judgments. Rereading the Gospel? For these reasons, we are deeply disturbed by the ideas coming from Roman Catholic theologians. Recent statements from Rome indicate this is now accelerating toward the “Omega Point” developed by the French Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Since Chardin’s era, Roman Catholic theologians have been working to codify the alien gospel. A leader in this effort is Opus Dei member and professor of theology at the University of the Holy Cross in Rome, Giuseppe Tanzella-Nitti, who has written concerning one’s response when confronted by an intelligent extraterrestrial reality: At the same time, it seems important to note that a believer who is respectful of the requirements of scientific reasoning would not be obliged to renounce his own faith in God simply on the basis of the reception of new, unexpected information of a religious character from extraterrestrial civilizations. In the first place, human reason itself would suggest the need to submit this new “religious content” coming from outside the Earth to an analysis of reasonableness and credibility (analogous to what we are accustomed to do when any religious content is proposed to us, on Earth); once the trustworthiness of the information has been verified, the believer should try to reconcile such new information with the truth that he or she already knows and believes on the basis of the revelation of the One and Triune God, conducting a re-reading inclusive of the new data, similar to that which would be applied in an ordinary interreligious dialogue.[x] This is deeply troubling because Rome’s track record of rereading revelation in interreligious dialogue is already dismal. Anyone familiar with the theological content channeled by the alleged extraterrestrials is aware of its subversive nature. Naturally, Tanzella-Nitti excludes that material and would argue he is speaking purely hypothetically, but Catholic theology is already wide open enough to accept such content. In the early 1960s, Rome moved from one extreme to another when Vatican II radically reinterpreted the classical position which held “outside of Rome there is no salvation”[xi] to one of liberalized inclusivism. In fact, one of the more influential figures at second Vatican council, Karl Rahner, advocated the concept of the “anonymous Christian.”[xii] In his rebellion against God, Rahner proposes, a sincere Hindu or Buddhist can be saved without knowledge of the Gospel and this view was explicitly endorsed during Vatican II. Not too surprisingly, it is already being applied to extraterrestrials. Notre Dame theologian Thomas O’Mera implies inclusivism concerning the salvation of extraterrestrials when he rhetorically asks, “Is Jesus so central a figure that only he and his Middle Eastern religious world can reveal God?”[xiii] What an odd question, given that Jesus is God (Romans 9:5). This questioning of Christ’s sufficiency is disquieting, considering O’Mera is on the forefront of Catholic exotheology with his 2012 book, Vast Universe, and editorials for the Huffington Post. This Roman Catholic doctrine called “inclusivism”—that nonbelievers are saved through their own religions or secular philosophies—is considered heretical by Bible-believing Christians (John 14:7; Acts 4:12). Worse yet, the New Testament implies that non-Christian religions are demonically inspired (1 Corinthians 10:20). Consequently, it is without question that these Roman Catholic theologians become enemies of the cross at this point. Inclusivism hinders the spread of the Gospel that true disciples are commanded to communicate (Matthew 28:19). In regard to people of other religions, they presume to respect their beliefs; but, in reality, it amounts to the crassest sort of contempt, because it is guaranteeing their eternal separation from God by withholding from them the only message that can save them. In light of this precedent, our sincere concern extends doubly to Tanzella-Nitti’s charge that Roman Catholics will be “conducting a re-reading inclusive of the new data”[xiv] referring to the revealed spiritual “light” of the alleged extraterrestrials. In that regard, Jesuit astronomer Guy Consolmagno has written, “Any aliens we find will learn and change from contact with us, just as we will learn and change from contact with them. It’s inevitable. And they’ll be evangelizing us, too.”[xv] Given the profound theological errors inherent in such Catholicism and well documented ET/occult connections, we find this deeply disturbing. Elsewhere I refer to the work of Dr. Michael Heiser, who speculates that scientific evidence seeming to affirm that life on Earth was seeded from space could potentially inspire an inclusivist global religion. In regard to panspermia, he wrote, “It will be the paradigm that allows the atheist to tolerate religion, and allows literalist Bible-readers, the eastern Buddhist, and the pagan to simultaneously parse the new science the same way. This might in turn be useful fodder for a global religion.”[xvi] A Catholic priest and astronomer, Kenneth J. Delano, wrote in an officially sanctioned Catholic book, “Our religious sensitivities ought not be shocked by the idea that the evolutionary history of the human body might be traced back ultimately to a primordial refuse heap left by visiting ETI when Earth was young.”[xvii] In other words, we might have evolved from ancient alien garbage. He adds, “No great theological difficulty should present itself if we discover that ETI played an important part in the formation of the human race.”[xviii] Based on this foundation, Vatican II and the work of theologians like Chardin, O’Mera, Tanzella-Nitti, and Rahner, Roman Catholicism has the theological structure in place to lead that charge. Even more, ever wonder why the Internet is replete with stories concerning the baptism of extraterrestrials by Catholic priests? Are we being conditioned? Will the Vatican Baptize Aliens? Several Jesuit members of the Vatican Observatory Research Group (VORG) have made public statements concerning the baptism of extraterrestrials. The first was when then-acting VORG director George Coyne announced at the launch of the VATT facility that “the Church would be obliged to address the question of whether extraterrestrials might be brought within the fold and baptized.”[xix] In a New York Times magazine article—titled “Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?”—another VORG astronomer, Chris Corbally, indicated he would baptize extraterrestrials as well.[xx] Similarly, when asked whether he’d baptize an alien, Guy Consolmagno replied, “Only if they asked” and then qualified, “Any entity—no matter how many tentacles it has, has a soul.”[xxi] However, Scripture indicates that there are deceiving entities beyond redemption. Satan, who presents himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14) and blinds the minds of unbelievers (2 Corinthians 4:4), will be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone forever (Revelation 20:10), and Jesus indicates that this is also the fate of Satan’s millions of compatriot angels (Matthew 25:41). This begs the question, “What if such a deceptive entity taking a human form did ask a Catholic priest to baptize him?” The Catholic belief is that baptism “confers grace ex opere operato, that is, the sacrament works of itself.”[xxii] This literally means the ritual itself takes away sin without requiring faith in the Gospel. This is also why unbaptized infants cannot go to heaven, according to Rome.[xxiii] While the dissonance with inclusivism is deafening, theological harmony is not a strong suit for Rome. The Council of Trent declared: “If anyone denies that by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is conferred in baptism, the guilt of original sin is remitted, or even asserts that the whole of that which has the true and proper nature of sin is not taken away, but says that it is only touched in person or is not imputed, let him be anathema.”[xxiv] While that curses just about all evangelicals, biblically based doctrine recognizes baptism as an outward sign of what has already occurred in the heart of the believer (Mark 16:16). When you recognize that you are dead in your sins and believe that Christ died for you and rose from the dead, you are justified in God’s eyes (Romans 10:10). It is a heart condition in reference to the propositional content of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:3–5). False baptisms and conversions are commonplace. Baptism does not save anyone or remove sin. Nevertheless, the Catholic priest erroneously believes the sacrament itself has supernatural power to remove sin and consequently, could be deceived into thinking a baptized alien entity would be in a state of grace as well. Even if these viral media statements about the baptism of aliens seem tongue in cheek, it could be part of a more subtle effort to influence public opinion. It’s not lost on ufology researchers either. Spokesman for the Star Peoples In the 2012 bestseller, After Disclosure: When the Government Finally Reveals the Truth About Alien Contact, Jim Marrs, Richard Dolan, and Bryce Zabel write concerning Roman Catholicism: The world’s largest church seems to be positioning itself to be at the forefront of Disclosure. The Vatican has long maintained several major astronomical observatories and a collection of radio telescopes. In recent years, its hierarchy has stated, in one form or another, that we have company. Perhaps they know something is afoot, or suspect its inevitability.[xxv] After citing a number of provocative statements similar to those we, too, have quoted, the authors conclude, “It is doubtful that all of these Vatican authorities would speak so openly if they felt they were in conflict with official doctrine. Quietly, a policy appears to have been decided upon.”[xxvi] It’s hard to take issue with this assessment. Given the sheer volume of provocative statements issued by the VORG astronomers and theologians like Chardin, Tanzella-Nitti, O’Mera, and Balducci, it seems academic. Has the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church been deceived by those evil supernatural intelligences? It seems apparent due to Balducci’s blanket dismissal of the demonic overtones and occult connections. A close friend of Pope John Paul II, Balducci went on an Italian television show in 1995 and made some startling assertions that prompted a firestorm of speculation in ufology circles. What follows is a transcription of part of that interview given to host Bruno Mobrici, translated into English from the original Italian. Mobrici: Father Balducci, what would you answer to all of those who claim that the aliens are already among us? Balducci: We can no longer think… is it true, is it not true, are they truth or are they lies, if we believe, or if we don’t! There are already many considerations which MAKES THE EXISTANCE OF THESE BEINGS INTO A CERTAINY. WE CANNOT DOUBT. Even if we say that among a hundred of these phenomenon there are only… even if we said that 99 were false and that one was true, it’s that one that says that some phenomenon exist. Therefore this is the first problem…it’s not anymore…it doesn’t revert anymore to the ambit of human prudence…to doubt…because…the prudence says to be prudent, but not to deny.[xxvii] (suspension points, bold text, caps, and misspelled words in original) What are we to make of such a highly placed and influential insider announcing on television that the evidence he is aware of “makes the existence of these beings into a certainty?”[xxviii] The title “Monsignor” indicates he has received a special honor from the Pope, so it would be difficult to argue that he was some sort of loose cannon. He went further while speaking at a UFO conference in Mexico: “I always wish to be the spokesman for these star peoples who also are part of God’s glory, and I will continue to bring it to the attention of the Holy Mother Church.”[xxix] The context of this public address in Mexico was undeniably speaking to the same “star peoples” widely associated with New Age spirituality and the alien abduction phenomenon. As mentioned above by Heiser, scholars of comparative religion note the remarkable correspondence between information from contactees like George Adamski and occult groups like the Theosophical Society. Gregory L. Recce, a scholar of cult beliefs, notes the parallels: Just as the sources for twentieth-century flying saucer sightings can be traced back to the late nineteenth century so can the sources for twentieth-century contactees, which in this case can be traced back to the life and teachings of Helena Petovna Blavatsky (1831–91), whose Theosophical ideas are clearly paralleled in the claims of many contactees.[xxx] Blavatsky maintained that her theosophical teaching came from a long line of enlightened masters, including Jesus and Buddha, as well as masters who dwelt on Venus. Her pantheistic belief system of spiritual evolution finds remarkable parallels to that of Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (detailed later). Fascinatingly, in addition to the satanic connotations ascribed by the Vulgate and King James translations, the Latin name “Lucifer” refers to the morning star otherwise known as Venus. Blavatsky named her magazine Lucifer[xxxi] and taught that “Lucifer, as Christ”[xxxii] was the serpent in the Garden of Eden “who spoke only words of sympathy and wisdom to the woman.”[xxxiii] Also allegedly in contact with the Venusians, George Adamski, a famous 1940s contactee, taught a nearly identical message of evolution and Eastern mysticism to that of Blavatsky and Chardin. Strangely, just like Balducci’s ambition to be spokesperson for the “star peoples,” Adamski was the self-proclaimed ambassador to the “space brothers.” The connections to Roman Catholicism get even stranger. George Adamski Meets the Pope In his books Flying Saucers Have Landed (1953), Inside the Space Ships (1955), and Flying Saucer Farewell (1961), Adamski claimed to have, on numerous occasions, traveled to neighboring planets inhabited by the benevolent space brothers aboard flying saucers. Like Blavatsky and Chardin, he incorporated Jesus into his beliefs and used biblical terminology to promote a version of pantheistic monism: Jesus continually turned his vision to the Light of his true perfect being and he reported that there is no evil in the world, that nothing shall by any means harm you. He knew the kingdom of heaven; the radiation of his own being transmuted his world into a thing of beauty. He did not discriminate between races, colors, creeds, or theories. He did not look to a personal deity but to an impersonal Creator; his law was not hate but love. And if the kingdom of heaven is to be brought upon the earth every man must live the life as he lived it. All must behold the oneness of life, the unity of being.[xxxiv] Several demonic perversions are immediately apparent: 1: Jesus taught that the world was evil (John 3:19; 7:7; 17:5). 2: Jesus prayed to the Father as a personal God and taught His disciples to do the same (Matthew 6:9). 3: The Kingdom of Heaven will not be brought upon Earth by the actions of men, but by Christ’s return (Revelation 20:6). While the theology is typical saucer-cult fare, a lesser-known point is that Adamski claimed to have delivered a message from the Space Brothers to a receptive Pope John XXIII. A biographer recounts the incident: Adamski nodded and insisted that a meeting with the Pope had been arranged. From his pocket he took a package. It contained a message, he said, from the Space People, who had asked him to deliver it to the Pope. Zinsstag was dubious. But they flew to Rome, and were soon making their way to the Vatican. As they approached the Apostolic Palace, Adamski looked about for the papal representative with whom he was supposed to rendezvous. “There he is, I can see the man. Please, wait for me at this very spot in about an hour’s time!” He descended the steps and, going to the left, entered a doorway—from which Zinsstag thought to discern someone gesturing to him. She was puzzled, though, having expected Adamski to turn right and go in at the main entrance where the Swiss Guards were posted. After an hour she returned, to find Adamski waiting for her and “grinning like a monkey.” On his face was an unforgettable look of sheer joy. The Pope had received him, he said, and accepted the message from the Space People. Adamski showed her a commemorative coin, and described how the Pope had given it to him—in appreciation of his having delivered the message. While we will probably never know if Adamski was telling the truth about what the Space Brothers allegedly communicated to the pope, this casts Balducci’s recent claims in an unsettling light. Also, it is remarkable that Pope John XXIII was the pope who called the Second Vatican Council responsible for the inclusivist framework capable of accommodating the Star Peoples. Finally, recalling how we began this series with Pope Benedict XVI’s call for a world political authority with “real teeth,” in his 1963 encyclical, Pacem in Terris, Pope John XXIII also called for a “universal authority” to deal with global problems: Today the universal common good presents us with problems which are world-wide in their dimensions; problems, therefore, which cannot be solved except by a public authority with power, organization and means co-extensive with these problems, and with a world-wide sphere of activity. Consequently the moral order itself demands the establishment of some such general form of public authority.

And they’ll be evangelizing us, too.”[xv] Given the profound theological errors inherent in such Catholicism and well documented ET/occult connections, we find this deeply disturbing. Elsewhere I refer to the work of Dr. Michael Heiser, who speculates that scientific evidence seeming to affirm that life on Earth was seeded from space could potentially inspire an inclusivist global religion. In regard to panspermia, he wrote, “It will be the paradigm that allows the atheist to tolerate religion, and allows literalist Bible-readers, the eastern Buddhist, and the pagan to simultaneously parse the new science the same way. This might in turn be useful fodder for a global religion.”[xvi] A Catholic priest and astronomer, Kenneth J. Delano, wrote in an officially sanctioned Catholic book, “Our religious sensitivities ought not be shocked by the idea that the evolutionary history of the human body might be traced back ultimately to a primordial refuse heap left by visiting ETI when Earth was young.”[xvii] In other words, we might have evolved from ancient alien garbage. He adds, “No great theological difficulty should present itself if we discover that ETI played an important part in the formation of the human race.”[xviii] Based on this foundation, Vatican II and the work of theologians like Chardin, O’Mera, Tanzella-Nitti, and Rahner, Roman Catholicism has the theological structure in place to lead that charge. Even more, ever wonder why the Internet is replete with stories concerning the baptism of extraterrestrials by Catholic priests? Are we being conditioned? Will the Vatican Baptize Aliens? Several Jesuit members of the Vatican Observatory Research Group (VORG) have made public statements concerning the baptism of extraterrestrials. The first was when then-acting VORG director George Coyne announced at the launch of the VATT facility that “the Church would be obliged to address the question of whether extraterrestrials might be brought within the fold and baptized.”[xix] In a New York Times magazine article—titled “Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?”—another VORG astronomer, Chris Corbally, indicated he would baptize extraterrestrials as well.[xx] Similarly, when asked whether he’d baptize an alien, Guy Consolmagno replied, “Only if they asked” and then qualified, “Any entity—no matter how many tentacles it has, has a soul.”[xxi] However, Scripture indicates that there are deceiving entities beyond redemption. Satan, who presents himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14) and blinds the minds of unbelievers (2 Corinthians 4:4), will be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone forever (Revelation 20:10), and Jesus indicates that this is also the fate of Satan’s millions of compatriot angels (Matthew 25:41). This begs the question, “What if such a deceptive entity taking a human form did ask a Catholic priest to baptize him?” The Catholic belief is that baptism “confers grace ex opere operato, that is, the sacrament works of itself.”[xxii] This literally means the ritual itself takes away sin without requiring faith in the Gospel. This is also why unbaptized infants cannot go to heaven, according to Rome.[xxiii] While the dissonance with inclusivism is deafening, theological harmony is not a strong suit for Rome. The Council of Trent declared: “If anyone denies that by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is conferred in baptism, the guilt of original sin is remitted, or even asserts that the whole of that which has the true and proper nature of sin is not taken away, but says that it is only touched in person or is not imputed, let him be anathema.”[xxiv] While that curses just about all evangelicals, biblically based doctrine recognizes baptism as an outward sign of what has already occurred in the heart of the believer (Mark 16:16). When you recognize that you are dead in your sins and believe that Christ died for you and rose from the dead, you are justified in God’s eyes (Romans 10:10). It is a heart condition in reference to the propositional content of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:3–5). False baptisms and conversions are commonplace. Baptism does not save anyone or remove sin. Nevertheless, the Catholic priest erroneously believes the sacrament itself has supernatural power to remove sin and consequently, could be deceived into thinking a baptized alien entity would be in a state of grace as well. Even if these viral media statements about the baptism of aliens seem tongue in cheek, it could be part of a more subtle effort to influence public opinion. It’s not lost on ufology researchers either. Spokesman for the Star Peoples In the 2012 bestseller, After Disclosure: When the Government Finally Reveals the Truth About Alien Contact, Jim Marrs, Richard Dolan, and Bryce Zabel write concerning Roman Catholicism: The world’s largest church seems to be positioning itself to be at the forefront of Disclosure. The Vatican has long maintained several major astronomical observatories and a collection of radio telescopes. In recent years, its hierarchy has stated, in one form or another, that we have company. Perhaps they know something is afoot, or suspect its inevitability.[xxv] After citing a number of provocative statements similar to those we, too, have quoted, the authors conclude, “It is doubtful that all of these Vatican authorities would speak so openly if they felt they were in conflict with official doctrine. Quietly, a policy appears to have been decided upon.”[xxvi] It’s hard to take issue with this assessment. Given the sheer volume of provocative statements issued by the VORG astronomers and theologians like Chardin, Tanzella-Nitti, O’Mera, and Balducci, it seems academic. Has the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church been deceived by those evil supernatural intelligences? It seems apparent due to Balducci’s blanket dismissal of the demonic overtones and occult connections. A close friend of Pope John Paul II, Balducci went on an Italian television show in 1995 and made some startling assertions that prompted a firestorm of speculation in ufology circles. What follows is a transcription of part of that interview given to host Bruno Mobrici, translated into English from the original Italian. Mobrici: Father Balducci, what would you answer to all of those who claim that the aliens are already among us? Balducci: We can no longer think… is it true, is it not true, are they truth or are they lies, if we believe, or if we don’t! There are already many considerations which MAKES THE EXISTANCE OF THESE BEINGS INTO A CERTAINY. WE CANNOT DOUBT. Even if we say that among a hundred of these phenomenon there are only… even if we said that 99 were false and that one was true, it’s that one that says that some phenomenon exist. Therefore this is the first problem…it’s not anymore…it doesn’t revert anymore to the ambit of human prudence…to doubt…because…the prudence says to be prudent, but not to deny.[xxvii] (suspension points, bold text, caps, and misspelled words in original) What are we to make of such a highly placed and influential insider announcing on television that the evidence he is aware of “makes the existence of these beings into a certainty?”[xxviii] The title “Monsignor” indicates he has received a special honor from the Pope, so it would be difficult to argue that he was some sort of loose cannon. He went further while speaking at a UFO conference in Mexico: “I always wish to be the spokesman for these star peoples who also are part of God’s glory, and I will continue to bring it to the attention of the Holy Mother Church.”[xxix] The context of this public address in Mexico was undeniably speaking to the same “star peoples” widely associated with New Age spirituality and the alien abduction phenomenon. As mentioned above by Heiser, scholars of comparative religion note the remarkable correspondence between information from contactees like George Adamski and occult groups like the Theosophical Society. Gregory L. Recce, a scholar of cult beliefs, notes the parallels: Just as the sources for twentieth-century flying saucer sightings can be traced back to the late nineteenth century so can the sources for twentieth-century contactees, which in this case can be traced back to the life and teachings of Helena Petovna Blavatsky (1831–91), whose Theosophical ideas are clearly paralleled in the claims of many contactees.[xxx] Blavatsky maintained that her theosophical teaching came from a long line of enlightened masters, including Jesus and Buddha, as well as masters who dwelt on Venus. Her pantheistic belief system of spiritual evolution finds remarkable parallels to that of Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (detailed later). Fascinatingly, in addition to the satanic connotations ascribed by the Vulgate and King James translations, the Latin name “Lucifer” refers to the morning star otherwise known as Venus. Blavatsky named her magazine Lucifer[xxxi] and taught that “Lucifer, as Christ”[xxxii] was the serpent in the Garden of Eden “who spoke only words of sympathy and wisdom to the woman.”[xxxiii] Also allegedly in contact with the Venusians, George Adamski, a famous 1940s contactee, taught a nearly identical message of evolution and Eastern mysticism to that of Blavatsky and Chardin. Strangely, just like Balducci’s ambition to be spokesperson for the “star peoples,” Adamski was the self-proclaimed ambassador to the “space brothers.” The connections to Roman Catholicism get even stranger. George Adamski Meets the Pope In his books Flying Saucers Have Landed (1953), Inside the Space Ships (1955), and Flying Saucer Farewell (1961), Adamski claimed to have, on numerous occasions, traveled to neighboring planets inhabited by the benevolent space brothers aboard flying saucers. Like Blavatsky and Chardin, he incorporated Jesus into his beliefs and used biblical terminology to promote a version of pantheistic monism: Jesus continually turned his vision to the Light of his true perfect being and he reported that there is no evil in the world, that nothing shall by any means harm you. He knew the kingdom of heaven; the radiation of his own being transmuted his world into a thing of beauty. He did not discriminate between races, colors, creeds, or theories. He did not look to a personal deity but to an impersonal Creator; his law was not hate but love. And if the kingdom of heaven is to be brought upon the earth every man must live the life as he lived it. All must behold the oneness of life, the unity of being.[xxxiv] Several demonic perversions are immediately apparent: 1: Jesus taught that the world was evil (John 3:19; 7:7; 17:5). 2: Jesus prayed to the Father as a personal God and taught His disciples to do the same (Matthew 6:9). 3: The Kingdom of Heaven will not be brought upon Earth by the actions of men, but by Christ’s return (Revelation 20:6). While the theology is typical saucer-cult fare, a lesser-known point is that Adamski claimed to have delivered a message from the Space Brothers to a receptive Pope John XXIII. A biographer recounts the incident: Adamski nodded and insisted that a meeting with the Pope had been arranged. From his pocket he took a package. It contained a message, he said, from the Space People, who had asked him to deliver it to the Pope. Zinsstag was dubious. But they flew to Rome, and were soon making their way to the Vatican. As they approached the Apostolic Palace, Adamski looked about for the papal representative with whom he was supposed to rendezvous. “There he is, I can see the man. Please, wait for me at this very spot in about an hour’s time!” He descended the steps and, going to the left, entered a doorway—from which Zinsstag thought to discern someone gesturing to him. She was puzzled, though, having expected Adamski to turn right and go in at the main entrance where the Swiss Guards were posted. After an hour she returned, to find Adamski waiting for her and “grinning like a monkey.” On his face was an unforgettable look of sheer joy. The Pope had received him, he said, and accepted the message from the Space People. Adamski showed her a commemorative coin, and described how the Pope had given it to him—in appreciation of his having delivered the message. While we will probably never know if Adamski was telling the truth about what the Space Brothers allegedly communicated to the pope, this casts Balducci’s recent claims in an unsettling light. Also, it is remarkable that Pope John XXIII was the pope who called the Second Vatican Council responsible for the inclusivist framework capable of accommodating the Star Peoples. Finally, recalling how we began this series with Pope Benedict XVI’s call for a world political authority with “real teeth,” in his 1963 encyclical, Pacem in Terris, Pope John XXIII also called for a “universal authority” to deal with global problems: Today the universal common good presents us with problems which are world-wide in their dimensions; problems, therefore, which cannot be solved except by a public authority with power, organization and means co-extensive with these problems, and with a world-wide sphere of activity. Consequently the moral order itself demands the establishment of some such general form of public authority.
