Legends and Mysteries:

There have been a number of books on UFO's in the Bible. Some believe that Satan and his angels are UFOs, but I see no good evidence for UFO's or Satan driving around in a UFO. Others see the amazing ancient monuments like the pyramids as the result of aliens, but this is wrong. We know from ancient records, archaeology, and pictures how the pyramids were made. Others claim that the miraculous events of the Bible are the result of aliens like the 10 plagues of Egypt, but there is no evidence for this.

Alien Crash near Roswell?

One of the most important events in UFOlogy is the supposed crash of a flying saucer with aliens in it near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 who were quickly taken away by the government. A close look at the evidence will show that this is totally false. The best explanation of this is that a top secret Air Force balloon crashed landed which was part of Project Mogul. Project Mogul was to fly high in the air to detect any nuclear detonations from Russia. See pictures and more details at The Roswell Incident and Project Mogul.

Flying Saucers at Area 51?

There have been many sightings of flying saucers around Area 51 a dried up lake basin in Nevada called Groom Dry Lake. Area 51 is a top secret base of the Air Force which was used to develop and test fly new air planes. Most of these were probably the Stealth bomber that mainly was tested at night. The movie MIB has popularized Area 51 as a secret government base for flying saucers and aliens. This is totally false. See picture and more details at Area 51 - Military Facility, Social Phenomenon and State of Mind, see also Area 51.

Alien Autopsy?

Fox TV network on 1995 showed a video of an alien autopsy. Experts pointed out that this is not real. It has been admitted to be fake. See "Alien Autopsy" a Hoax, Fox Says.

Alien Abduction?

Alien abduction can be traced back to the Barney and Betty Hill story. They claim to have been abducted by aliens on September 19, 1961. Back in the 1930's the comic book Buck Rogers in the 25th Century featured aliens abductions. Suggestion, especially under hypnosis, can make people think they have been abducted. Some can be false memories. Some reinterpret terrible events like rape as alien abduction. For more details see alien abductions.

Is the Earth Hollow?

Some believe that the earth is hollow with underground cities, but this is totally false. There are thousands of core drilling samples that go down thousands of feet showing no hollow earth. Seismic readings also indicate the earth is not hollow. For an interesting history of this theory see The Hollow Earth.

Crop Circles

In 1979 in the United Kingdom there appeared mysterious diagrams in crops that were flattened. Immediately these were attributed to UFOs. In 1992 two retired men in England admitted that they had made these circles as a prank. In Hungary two 17 year olds students came forward on TV to show how they made the circles. The farm brought a lawsuit against them. The court stated that the teens were only responsible for the crops they damaged. The media should be blamed for promoting the hoax. See crop circle.
