6.1 – ALIENS & FORBIDDEN ISLANDS (11.29.13)

UNDERWATER UFO BASES [2b]

March 1963. 75 miles off the coast of Puerto Rico. While training in anti-submarine maneuvers, the United States Navy’s fleet led by the USS Wasp aircraft carrier detects an unknown sonar target moving in the nearby waters. For four days, the fleet tracked the unknown object, recording its speed at more than 150 knots, or 170 miles per hour.

“There is nothing in any naval inventory anywhere in the world that can approach anything remotely that speed. Not then, not now. Moreover, the object descended to a depth of something like 27,000 feet. Again, another impossibility. The pressures down there are vastly too much. They would crush any vessel that went down that deep.”

(Author, UFOs & the National Security State)

“At that time, the technology that we had, the best that we could do underwater was about 45 knots at a maximum depth of about 3,000 feet.”

“For the last hundred, 200 years…there have been many, many accounts of objects that have been seen underwater. But exactly what they are we still do not know.”

(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

“There’s been a tremendous surge of UFO sightings in Puerto Rico since the early 1990s. And for many of the Puerto Rican witnesses, they’re absolutely convinced that there’s some sort of massive futuristic installation deep below Puerto Rico, under the ocean bed.”

Is it possible that aliens have bases here on Earth, hidden deep underwater and off the coasts of islands? Could this explain why so many islands around the world have stories of unexplained sightings of objects both overhead and beneath the sea?

“Isolated islands would be a perfect location for, say, extraterrestrial beings to make their base of operations. Radar could spot any kind of craft in orbit very quickly. However, if you had your base underwater, near an island…a lot more difficult to be discovered.”

– Tim Swartz (Editor, Conspiracy Journal),
(Editor, Richard Shaver: Reality of Inner Earth),
(Author, Time Travel: Fact Not Fiction),
(The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla)

“Islands are essentially mountains that are mostly underwater. What they are, in essence, is energetic upwellings of the energy of the earth, pushing higher and higher and higher.  Logically, these types of locations would be very attractive to visitors from another world, especially visitors that would be looking for an ideal place to set up a base, or a landing spot, or simply a place where they could draw some of the earth’s energy.”

The Aleutian Islands. Just off the Alaskan coast, this chain of more than 100 small islands extends west for 1,100 miles, separating the Bering Sea from the Pacific Ocean. Here, in the summer of 1945, 14 crew members of the United States army transport Delarof reported seeing what they believed to be a large UFO emerge from the waters near the island of Adak.

“It is reported that a round object that appeared dark, against the setting sun at the time, actually rose up vertically into the air and then circled the boat two, or possibly three, times. And was visible for about seven or eight minutes before it vanished.”

– Andrew Collins (Author, Gateway to Atlantis),
(The Cygnus Mystery), (Beneath the Pyramids),
(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

“Something that comes out of the water, circles around and then takes off like that,  that’s well beyond anything we’re supposed to have. And they’re in the middle of the ocean. That’s the important thing to remember here. There’s just nothing, nothing that’s supposed to be there, and yet there’s activity being reported there.”

Richard Dolan
(Author, UFOs & the National Security State)

UFO sightings around the Aleutian Islands continue to this day. But why? Is it perhaps more than mere coincidence that the native people known as the Aleuts believe this is the exact spot where their ancestors first descended from the skies?

“The Aleuts believe they descended from a creature that had come from the sky. A dog, actually, had fallen to the island of Umnak and had had two pups with paws. But the children that came from those two were perfect humans. So, by way of this descent from the heavens and by way of animal form, we get the Aleutian people.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

“I find it intriguing that the Aleut’s origin story has something to do with them having arrived from the sky, essentially saying that they have been seeded. So, the fact that, to this day, that area of the world is considered a hot spot for UFO’s is not coincidence.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“There have been rumors that there is an underground alien or UFO base in the Aleutian Islands. The question is: could a base really exist there? And the answer is yeah. There’s plenty of places – knolls, atolls, volcanoes – where, if hollowed out, they would pretty much make ideal bases for UFOs to use to come and go as they please, and to investigate that area.”

– Michael Bara (Author, The Choice),
(Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA),
(Ancient Aliens on the Moon), (Ancient Aliens on Mars),
(Ancient Aliens and Secret Societies)

Could there really be a connection between the high number of UFO sightings and the Aleuts’ origin story? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and as evidence, they point to the fact that similar legends exist on other remote islands…islands that have also had reports of UFOs.

5,000 miles to the east of the Aleutian Islands, nestled in the Irish Sea, lies the Isle of Man. According to legend, the Isle of Man was founded by a mystical race of Celts, the Tuatha Dé Danann, who possessed magical powers. Banished from heaven for their sorcery and advanced knowledge, they descended on Ireland in a cloud of mist.

“It’s said that at the end of their time, they just sort of vanished. Left behind their ghosts, quite literally, and these are remembered in the folklore of the Isle of Man as the ‘Little People.’”

– Andrew Collins (Author, Gateway to Atlantis),
(The Cygnus Mystery), (Beneath the Pyramids),
(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

The so-called “Little People” are believed by the locals to be able to put humans under a magical spell – a spell in which all awareness of space and time is lost.

“Kidnapping human beings is one of the chief activities of the Little People. And the whole point of these stories is that the humans tend to come back from the other realm, often finding that hundreds of years have passed.”

– Ronald Hutton, Ph.D.
(Prof. of History, Bristol Univ./Author, Shamans)

“And this sounds really, really similar to what people experience sometimes during alien abduction events where a ship will show up, the very small aliens will come out. They’ll find themselves paralyzed, they’ll have missing time experiences. And there’s reason to believe that the Little People may have, in fact, been extraterrestrials; the same “Greys,” as we describe them, that perform the same types of magical enchantment on people that they abduct today.”

– Michael Bara (Author, The Choice),
(Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA),
(Ancient Aliens on the Moon), (Ancient Aliens on Mars),
(Ancient Aliens and Secret Societies)

Could the legends of the Little People and the ancestral Tuatha Dé Danann actually be describing otherworldly beings that came to Earth in the distant past? And if so, might these legends be connected to modern-day UFO sightings over the Isle of Man? Locals claim that these UFO sightings have been reported for centuries and for Ancient Astronaut Theorists, the most compelling sighting of all is a 2,500-year-old report of a fiery wheel with three spokes descending from the heavens.

“According to legend on the Isle of Man, some fishermen were washed ashore during a terrible storm. Suddenly this three-spoked craft came out of the clouds terrifying them.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“There have been sightings on the Isle of Man going back centuries of what are described as wheels or “fiery wheels” in the sky. Now, these descriptions are almost identical to the description of the wheel of Ezekiel in the Bible.”

– Michael Bara (Author, The Choice),
(Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA),
(Ancient Aliens on the Moon), (Ancient Aliens on Mars),
(Ancient Aliens and Secret Societies)

According to Ezekiel, chapter one, the prophet saw a flying object described as four wheels within a wheel, an account that Ancient Astronaut Theorists say is not of an angel, but of an extraterrestrial spacecraft.

“Biblical scholars have very much struggled with the description of Ezekiel’s wheel, seeing wheels within wheels, the idea that a cherub was standing next to each wheel. It’s very clear that he’s describing some type of device.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“Ezekiel describes wheels within a wheel, and eyes of different animals, and they’re all gleaming like bronze and metal. So, what is really described here? It reads much more like an encounter with some type of an extraterrestrial craft that was misinterpreted as some type of a divine event.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“So you have to think really that Isle of Man was some kind of island that was chosen by the extraterrestrials. This was one of their bases. They would land their UFOs there. And in fact, legends about UFO’s and extraterrestrials continue on the island even to this day.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(Lost Cities of Ancient Lemuria & the Pacific)

Could these islands actually contain alien base camps, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists contend? And might these powerful locations reveal important knowledge for mankind? Perhaps clues can be found in another mysterious Pacific Island chain 9,200 miles to the southeast, an area rumored to be inhabited by giants.
