So are aliens demons? Are UFOs the result of ‘divine’ forces? According to new claims, Pentagon and MoD officials feared UFOs were either ‘demonic’ or sent by God, former UFO researchers reveal.
Researchers who carried out the UFO programs of the Pentagon and the British Ministry of Defense were hampered by alleged religious beliefs.
Demons, not Aliens?
The United States has—or better said had—a mysterious program dedicated to studying UFO sightings, financed with 22 million dollars per year.
Luis Elizondo, a former member of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), revealed this information a few months ago. Elizondo has now claimed that several high-ranking officials undermined his work in the belief that unidentified flying objects had a ‘demonic’ or ‘divine’ origin.
The purpose of the so-called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was to research and study flying foreign weapon threats. Many of the reports included details of pilots, who encountered a number of unidentified flying objects which were also later confirmed on radar.
UFO’s, a divine technology?
“What we found many times was the fact that the aircraft did not belong to anybody,” Elizondo said.
Sometimes, he added, the flying objects displayed behavior the AATIP team couldn’t explain.
Halfway around the world in the UK, Nick Pope, a former UFO investigator for the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense (MoD), has confirmed what Elizondo said.
“I was aware that Pentagon pushback on UFO research was in part due to the religious belief of some of those involved,” he revealed.
“It was an odd irony that UFO investigations were being hampered because some people’s belief in God meant that they either didn’t believe in the existence of extraterrestrial life or that they regarded UFOs and extraterrestrials as demonic.”
It is not surprising that religion often gets in the way of UFO research.
“Religious people often do not believe in the existence of extraterrestrials or characterize them as demons. This seems to be rooted in Satan’s biblical description as “the prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2: 2), “he added.
“Luis Elizondo says he opposed the religious beliefs of the top brass ruining their investigations while working for the Pentagon. I can say that I have seen evidence of the same in the MoD, “he concludes.
Not long ago, a spokesman of the Department of Defense within the Pentagon itself confirmed the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program had shut down in 2012. However, the New York Times has exposed that this work may still be operational in some capacity.
