UFOs | An Alternative Theory

UFO’s have been sighted all around the world.  Witnesses describe them as being far beyond current technologies developed by mankind and therefore must be the stellar vehicles developed by intelligent beings from a planet outside our own solar system.

But what are alternative theories not commonly discussed in the news?

This thought provoking question sent me on a mission to discover alternative theories that are backed by extensive documentation and evidence.  It seems I was lead backwards in time to an ancient civilization on earth called Atlantis – a taboo subject according to modern scholars, however it had to be considered at some point in my studies.

More commonly discussed in academic circles is the writings of Plato and his reference to this lost world.  Many have embarked on the search for this mythical land that apparently featured highly advanced technologies beyond what we have today.  Many researchers suggest this famous land is somewhere below the appropriately named Atlantic Ocean, while others suggest off the Greek Islands.

An alternative and not so commonly discussed theory relates to an Ancient Egyptian map that was reproduced in the 16th Century by a Jesuit Priest, Athanasius Kircher (1601 to 1680).  Many scholars have been challenged by the Kircher Atlantis map, as it positioned North as facing the bottom of the map – essentially it was commonly studied upside down so as to conform with our modern view of the world.

Published Atlantis researcher, Mr Rand Flem-Ath made a startling discovery way back in 1976 when he came across a pamphlet produced by the US Naval Support  Force on Antarctica called ‘Introduction to Antarticta’.  According to the Author had previously read a Plato piece that described the Earth’s geography from the perspective of Atlantis.  It was not until the Naval brochure came into the equation that Rand Flem-Ath made his startling realization.  On the front of the brochure featured a map with Antarctica at the center and the key continents referenced from this location. When compared to the Kircher map, one could easily argue that it is relatively similar:

Rand Flem-Ath has conducted extensive research to support his perspective that Antarctica is the lost continent of Atlantis.  We encourage you to make your own mind by further investigating his works.  A good starting point is his published work titled ‘When the Sky Fell; In Search of Atlantis’.

But what does this have to do with the UFO’s?

German UFOs
Did Germany back-engineer UFOs?

Many UFO researchers have come across classified documents concerning back-engineering projects conducted by Germany of UFO’s / flying saucers during World War  II.  Now as it were, I have come across an old Video cassette featuring a documentary titled “German Flying Saucers: UFO”.   The film was produced by Christopher McIlraith of Unlimited Vision Motion Pictures; dated 1993.

A review by Nexus Magazine reveals that the documentary features 286 flying saucer craft that were built between 1941 – 1945 by the Germans as both “war and science efforts”.  Included are detailed plans, and extensive photographic evidence of test flights conducted during this time.  Many UFO researchers suggest suggest these vehicles came into German possession after a crash landing, however an alternative theory links this technology to the continent of Antarctica.

Operation Highjump, officially titled ‘The United States Navy Antarctic Developments Program, was a U.S. Naval operation in 1946 that was organized by Richard E Byrd.  Interestingly, the expedition to Antarctica included 13 ships, multiple aircraft and some 4,700 men.  On completion of the Naval operation, Byrd stated that “the most important of the observations and discoveries made was of the present potential situation as it relates to the security of the United States”.  He further stated that he “realized perhaps better than any other person, the significance of the scientific discoveries made in these explorations”.

Many UFO researchers suggest Operation Highjump was a covert military operation to conquer secret underground Nazi facilities and capture the German UFO prototypes.  An investigation by researcher Kevin McClure is titled ‘The Nazi Mythos’ which features a range of material to support his claims.

Among the composition of material is included Photos and plans of prototypes; documents concerning German expeditions to Antarctica (coincide with Operation Highjump time frame); Maps of the continent and German newspaper articles dated 1939 concerning earlier expeditions to the area.

Interestingly, the NewYork Times featured a story in 1946 that was titled “Nazis’ Planned Sun Gun 5,100 Miles Up”. McClure suggested that Germany had started testing this technology in Antarctica, and presented photographs that show what is suggested is a weapon system originating in the clouds.

It is suggested by various UFO researchers that the prototype UFO’s were engineered from craft originally recovered from bases below Antarctica.  Images of the craft include a cross like emblem on the machines, which is also found in Ancient Egyptian Glyphs and referred to in Ancient Indian scriptures.

Mukul Sharma, an ancient civilization specialist, wrote an article for The Times of India in 1999 about an ancient Sanskrit text that details the use of aircraft that were called ‘Vimanas’.  Included are instructions on building the aircraft, stories of flight and reference to passengers specially equipped to survive multiple environments. Interestingly it further states that the craft featured weapons systems based on the reflective focusing of sunlight.

Further interpretations from the text revealed that in addition to the Vimanas, was a second civilization who built technologically superior cigar shaped craft referred to as ‘Vailixi’.  Unlike the Vimanas, the cigar craft is reportedly capable of under sea travel, space flight and reportedly first built around 18,000 BC.

Mukul Sharma revealed that texts from other cultures such as the ‘Laws of the Babylonians’ and the ‘Sifrala of Chaldea’ apparently corroborated flight claims made by the Sanskrit text.

Condon Report | Official US Government Report on UFOs

Gemini 7 in orbit in 1965. The Shuguang spacec...

In 1966, the United States Air Force requested the University of Colorado to commence a study of unidentified flying objects (UFO’s).  The Air Force funded study was informally named ‘The Condon Commitee’ and was directed by the Universities Professor of Physics, Mr Edward Condon.

Condon was a leading Nuclear Physicist who participated in the development of radar and nuclear weapons during World War Two.  The Professor played a pioneering role in the field of Quantum Mechanics, and in 1943 joined the ‘Manhattan Project’ – a secret project to develop the first atomic bomb.

Interestingly,  Condon had prior involvement with an Air Force UFO study known as Project Blue Book.  This earlier study was commissioned in 1952 to determine 1) if UFO’s were a threat to National Security; and 2) Scientifically analyze UFO related data.  Over the life of the project, thousands of UFO reports were collected, analyzed and filed.

The Condon Committee was commissioned to examine many hundreds of reports from Project Blue Book, but also from civilian UFO groups NICAP and APRO.  The purpose of the study is to determine whether “analysis of new sightings may provide some additions to scientific knowledge of value to the Air Force” and “to learn from UFO reports anything that could be considered as adding to scientific knowledge“.

The study was published in 1968 titled ‘Scientific study of Unidentified Flying Objects‘; however is widely referred to today as ‘The Condon Report’.

Of particular interest we came across reported sightings made by Gemini 4 astronaut McDivitt and Gemini 7 astronaut Borman.  The report concluded that the 3 incidents filed by the 2 astronauts “have not been adequately explained” (Condon Report Page 306).

  1. Gemini 4 mission, astronaut McDivitt:  observation of a cyclindrical object with a protuberance
  2. Gemini 4 mission, astronaut McDivitt:  observation of a moving bright light at a higher level than the Gemini spacecraft
  3. Gemini 7 mission, astronaut Borman:  observation of what he referred to as a “bogey” flying in formation with the spacecraft.

While the report does not conclusively refer to the objects as Alien vehicles, the transcript from the Gemini 7 mission raises the need for further investigation:

  • Spacecraft: Gemini 7 here, Houston how do you read?
  • Capcom: Loud and clear. 7, go ahead.
  • Spacecraft: Bogey at 10 o’clock high.
  • Capcom: This is Houston. Say again 7.
  • Spacecraft: Said we have a bogey at 10 o’clock high.
  • Capcom: Roger. Gemini 7., is that the booster or is that an actual sighting’?
  • Spacecraft: We have several, looks like debris up here. Actual sighting.
  • Capcom: You have any more information? Estimate distance or size?
  • Spacecraft: We also have the booster in sight.
  • Capcom: Understand you also have the booster in sight, Roger.
  • Spacecraft: Yea, we have a very, very many — look like hundreds of little particles banked on the left out about 3 to 7 miles.
  • Capcom: Understand you have many small particles going by on the left. At what distance?
  • Spacecraft: Oh about — it looks like a path of the vehicle at 90 degrees.
  • Capcom: Roger, understand that they are about 3 to 4 miles away.
  • Spacecraft: They are passed now they are in polar orbit.
  • Capcom: Roger, understand they were about 3 or 4 miles away.
  • Spacecraft: That’s what it appeared like. That’s roger.
  • Capcom: Were these particles in addition to the booster and the bogey at 10 o’clock high?
  • Spacecraft: Roger — Spacecraft (Lovell) I have the booster on my side, it’s a brilliant body in the sun, against a black background with trillions of particles on it.
  • Capcom: Roger. What direction is it from you?
  • Spacecraft: It’s about at my 2 o’clock position. (Lovell)
  • Capcom: Does that mean that it’s ahead of you?
  • Spacecraft: It’s ahead of us at 2 o’clock, slowly tumbling.
