6.6 – THE STAR CHILDREN (2.7.14)

BLACK-EYED CHILDREN [7e]

Abilene, Texas. 180 miles west of Dallas. Late one night, in 1996, journalist Brian Bethel was waiting in his parked car just outside a movie theater when two young boys walked up and asked for a ride home.

“Bethel was nervous, initially, at the approach of these children, and he wasn’t sure why. He estimated their ages to be somewhere between ten and 14 years old. They began to speak to him in a very strange manner.”

David Weatherly (Author, The Blackeyed Children)

“And they came up with this unlikely story of needing money to go the local cinema. Could he give them a ride back home? And they seemed very malevolent, very evil.  There was something deeply unsettling about them.”

– Nick Redfern (Author, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter),

(The World’s Weirdest Places),
(Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind),
(Bloodline of the Gods), (The NASA Conspiracies),
(On the Trail of the Saucer Spies:
UFOs and Government Surveillance)

“Finally, the children made eye contact with Bethel, at which point he realized their eyes were solid black. Not just the pupil, but the entire eye, solid black. This sort of pushed Bethel over the edge. He put the car in reverse, he pulled away from these kids as quickly as he could. And when he glanced back, there was nothing there.”

David Weatherly (Author, The Blackeyed Children)

Bethel documented his account on the Internet, and soon, others were posting similar encounters with the so-called black-eyed kids.

“Since publicity has been given to the phenomenon, other people have come forward who talked about sightings and encounters in the ’40s and the ’50s, so we’re not really sure when it all actually began.”

(Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind),
(Bloodline of the Gods), (The NASA Conspiracies),

Is it possible, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that these strange beings are Star Children with evil intentions?

“What differentiates the black-eyed children from the Star Children is the fact that the Star Children are very often described as being friendly, benevolent and positive. The black-eyed children – devilish, occult-driven and totally negative.”

– Nick Redfern (Author, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter),

“There’s a contemporary urban legend that there are black-eyed children that will show up at your door and ask for a glass of water or bake some food or ask to use the phone or something. They are demonic. They are trouble. They are children, so they seem innocent, but watch for the black eyes. That will give away the trouble to come.”

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

“As the years have unfolded, more and more people have come forward with their encounters. It seems very clear at this point that there’s something much more sinister going on than just a simple urban legend. Most people describe the black-eyed children as being in the age range of ten to early teens. They are described as having very pale skin. Not a blemish is ever seen on the skin. Their eyes are solid black. Now this is the most startling trait, obviously. They tend to speak in a very cold manner and repeat phrases frequently, as if they’ve memorized certain key things to say and repeat.”

David Weatherly (Author, The Blackeyed Children)

“And they say things like, “We’re hungry, we want in,” but with this dead look. And, I mean, again black eyes. You’re looking at these kids with black eyes. Close the door. They will leave. They won’t, like, try to break in or anything like that. But they want in, and I think if they get in, I think maybe they’re after your soul or something like that.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

“Now, of course, if a kid comes knocking on your door, your first thought is, well, you want to help him. But that’s the very last thing that crosses the mind of the black-eyed children witnesses. They want to get as far away from them as possible.”

– Nick Redfern (Author, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter),

(The World’s Weirdest Places),
(Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind),
(Bloodline of the Gods), (The NASA Conspiracies),
(On the Trail of the Saucer Spies:
UFOs and Government Surveillance)

“There have been cases where security cameras were present during the encounter. Very mysteriously, the security cameras experienced glitches in their tape. In some ways, it makes it all the more intriguing.”

  – David Weatherly (Author, The Blackeyed Children)

There are many theories about the black-eyed children, but some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe their appearance and mannerisms reveal an extraterrestrial origin.

“They have these jet-black solid eyes, hence the name. They look very, very creepy and weird.”

– Nick Redfern (Author, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter),
(The Real Men in Black), (Final Events),
(The World’s Weirdest Places),
(Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind),
(Bloodline of the Gods), (The NASA Conspiracies),

“It’s reported that the black-eyed children, too, may be hybrids. But they’re a little more evil than the normal Star Children that we’re accustomed to.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

“It’s possible that, for all of the light that is coming in with these Star Children, there’s also a counterbalance, something dark that is coming in at the same time. And it may be that these black-eyed children represent the negative side of the actual Star Children that are coming into our world.”

David Weatherly (Author, The Blackeyed Children)

Could the black-eyed kids actually be extraterrestrials in a limbo state between dimensions? And might these childlike beings be part of a much larger, otherworldly agenda? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes and point to the hungry ghosts of Thailand as proof.

According to this legend, the spirits of some children can become trapped in-between the worlds of life and death, and every year, during the full moon of the seventh lunar month of the Chinese calendar, these spirits are free to roam the Earth.

“The Hungry Ghost Festival is designed to placate these spirits. People believe that because of their desires, because of their needs, they can make contact with humans. Often these desires translate into extreme desires for food.”

David Weatherly (Author, The Blackeyed Children)

“The hungry ghosts that come out of Thailand seem to be descriptions of what appear to be children, and their insatiable appetite can never be filled.”

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

“These hungry ghosts are to be feared. Some people in Asia believe that the appearance of these black-eyed children is a manifestation of a hungry ghost asking you to invite it inside so that it can have food or water or whatever else that it desires.”

David Weatherly (Author, The Blackeyed Children)

Are the hungry ghosts of Thailand somehow connected with the black-eyed kids seen in America today? And if so, is this further evidence that there really are Star Children among us? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the answer might be connected to the prophecies of one of the world’s most legendary psychics.
