Alien contact

From George Adamski to the present, there have been many people who affirm to have had direct contact with creatures from outer space.
Adamski was the pioneer of this trend. After him there came more or less original variants, most of them aligned with similar basic principles. Those who claim to have had contact with aliens also use to claim that they received a message for humankind, mostly in the form of catastrophic warnings about the dangerous course our civilisation has taken and its likely outcome.

The religious factor

After Adamski, Eugenio Siracusa, Giorgio Bongiovani, Sixto Paz and other alien-contacted people have gradually added to their experiences elements from the Christian cosmogony. They also identify contacted aliens as the ancient biblical angels -divine agents to the Lord of the Universe and servants of Jesus and Mary.

After these great leaders of the alien contact -which since then was of a spiritual nature-, thousands of people in the world affirmed to have had similar enlightening experiences. We have even known some of them in person.

Trying to remain respectful to those people’s claims and at the same time faithful to our rational approach, we have to admit our suspicions about such phenomenon. We don’t intend to categorise anyone as liars or storytellers, but we still have the right to query their claims.

Lack of evidence

Alien contact has lacked factual evidence to support its actuality ever since the first recorded experience. In addition, for visitors from outer space proving that they are aliens would be as easy as showing us extraterrestrial material or technology we hadn’t heard of before. They might show contacted people evidence as to the accuracy of the string theory or whether gravitons exist. Both questions keep scientists up at night and proving them would radically revolutionise human knowledge.

On the other hand, assuming that aliens want to give a message to humanity, there are more effective ways than tormenting poor individuals in the middle of the night, blinding them with lights and special effects. With their advanced technology, extraterrestrial visitors could easily make use of international T.V. or radio networks to let us know their concerns and prove that they are real.
They could visit every city to talk directly with its citizens. They could stop all wars, feed all the hungry people, unmask all the corrupt systems etc. Thus, the phenomenon would be undeniable. Their message would be so powerful that everybody would be talking only about it.

Another worrying question is the irrefutable legitimacy of the Judaeo-Christian set of beliefs by the supposed aliens. Though deliberately avoiding polemical details, it’s worth mentioning that the history of both Christianity and the Catholic Church has been shaped throughout centuries by subsequent contributions that were initially derived from the syncretic tendency of the Roman Empire, who claimed credit for the idea. These contributions went on in the Middle Ages and later.

How is it possible that a decision made by an emperor or a pope to their own benefit is considered a universal truth? What about Buddhists, Shinto, Hindus and followers of other religions? Do they belong to a different universe?

Evidence on production

Those who are supposedly in touch with aliens show self-written material that they affirm to have received by means of mental channelling, which in turn is utterly ineffective to prove what they say. They also arrange appointments with lights in the sky so that others can see them. Unfortunately, this might be only a trick employing, for instance, luminous dummy aircrafts remotely operated from somewhere on the ground. Other people state to have subcutaneous implants, many of which, upon analysis, have proved to be of a terrestrial origin. In other words, there is no factual evidence of this phenomenon.


We don’t deny the existence of alien contact nor do we doubt anybody’s words. However, as humans we understand and accept things according to our nature. If anybody wants to tell us anything, he will have to adapt his message to our mental capacities and structures. For the time being this hasn’t happened, so the message remains unclear, which is absolutely appalling, since things seem to worsen and some help wouldn’t come amiss.
