UFO Society Claims To Be In Contact With Gods From Space

• The Aetherius Society was founded by Dr George King who claimed to have been contacted in 1958 by an advanced extra-terrestrial being called Aetherius. The being told King that he’d been ‘chosen’ and was given a command: “Prepare yourself, you are to become the voice of interplanetary parliament.” Dr King became the primary point of human contact for the Aetherius Masters until his death in 1997.

• Aetherius Society members claim that through yoga, Dr King was able to raise his consciousness to a level where extra-terrestrial beings could communicate through him – sometimes through telepathy, sometimes through direct channeling. The recordings and transcriptions of such messages from a variety of alien intellects are an important part of services held by the society.

• Mark Bennett attended his first Aetherius service at the age of 16. Over the past twenty years he’s risen to the level of International Director. Bennett admits that all of this may seem strange – especially to those with a lower spiritual understanding. Like all religious societies, a leap of faith is required for full understanding. “[T]he truth is so elevated that most people can’t get their heads around it.”

• One of the ‘Cosmic Masters’ messages proclaimed, “There will shortly come another among you, he will stand tall among men with a shining countenance. This one will be attired in a single garment of the type now known to you. His shoes will be soft-topped yet not made of the skin of animals. ….He will approach the Earth’s leaders, they will ask of him his credentials and he will produce these. His magic will be greater than any upon the Earth, greater than the combined materialistic might of all the armies. …They who heed not his words shall be removed from the Earth.”

• Bennett explains: “So, …at some point, an extra-terrestrial being will come to Earth … possibly in some kind of vehicle like what we might term a flying saucer.” “He will have great psychic powers. He will not age. When it says he will stand tall among men, that’s probably literally he will be really tall. … (possibly) around seven foot (tall). He will demonstrate great powers, as much as is necessary.”

• “From that point onwards,” Bennett continues, “people who continue to break the laws of God – for example, killing each other and warfare, hording massive amounts of wealth whilst others are starving – that will no longer be allowed to continue.” These people won’t be allowed to reincarnate onto this planet. “They will reincarnate onto another younger planet so that the only people left here will be those who are willing and able to build a new age upon Earth.” “Those who are reincarnated elsewhere aren’t being punished, it’s just the only way for them to make it. It’s a natural sorting, it’s spiritual evolution.”

• Bennett admits there’s a lot to take in. Aetherians believe that the Earth itself is a living goddess being that eventually ‘will have to express her true spiritual nature.’ When the Earth’s vibration raises, our own vibrations must rise as well in order to survive here. “Cosmic Masters will come to prepare those who may live in harmony with the Earth goddess, who have a chance of making it.”

• “All the other planets in this system are populated entirely by superior alien life forms known as Cosmic Masters,” claims Bennett. These Cosmic Masters want to be involved with us but can’t until we can reach a higher plane of spiritual evolution. Cosmic Masters do not age or die, but rather they change their bodily form after a few thousand years. They are in effect, immortal beings. Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Lao Tzu, and St Peter were all advanced intelligence beings from other planets. They have great psychic powers, telekinetic powers, healing powers, and all the kind of psychic abilities. “They are extremely spiritual and have evolved beyond petty emotion and only do what is best, according to karmic law.”

• Bennett argues that the Aetherian faith that is more logical than other religions. “[A]ll of these other faiths don’t explain why,” he says. “It’s almost like God’s run out of patience.” “[W]hereas in The Aetherius Society we have the exact explanation, which is that it just spiritually has to (happen).”

• A big part of what The Aetherius Society does today is to harness and store prayer energy in a spiritual battery devised by Dr King. Followers recite prayers and mantras in a semi-circular arrangement around the battery, whilst one member stands next to it, acting as a conduit. Targeted prayer energy can be sent to victims and aid workers involved in earthquakes, landslides, and warzones.

• The Aetherius Society has thousands of members in temples all around the world. It only costs $52 per year to be a member of the society, and this includes a magazine subscription.

 

Like all good tales of discovery, this one begins in the pub.

The Golden Lion pub in Todmorden, in fact – a pretty, peaceful West Yorkshire town that brims with stone cottages, rolling countryside and a pace of life that harks back to simpler times.

          Dr George King

This pub is not your average boozer though. It does things differently since being taken on by the local community. But I’m not here for that story. I’m here for the monthly Todmorden UFO Meet Up.

A couple of dozen people are here, convinced that the truth is out there. But that night’s speaker goes beyond flying discs and life on Mars. Much further.

Six weeks later I found myself sitting in The Aetherius Temple in Fulham with Mark Bennett, one of nine international directors of the society.
Bennett, along with the rest of the society, believes – among other things – that Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Lao Tzu, and St Peter were all advanced intelligence beings from other planets.

Oh, and that the Earth itself is a living goddess being. But more of that shortly.

The Aetherius Society was founded by Dr George King after he claimed to have been contacted in 1958 by a ‘Cosmic Master’ – an advanced extra-terrestrial being – called Aetherius and told him that he’d been chosen.

“Prepare yourself, you are to become the voice of interplanetary parliament,” was the message. In the society, this is known as ‘The Command’.
Dr King became the primary point of human contact for the Cosmic Masters until his death in 1997.

He was, the society claims, able to raise himself – through yoga – to such a level that extra-terrestrial beings could communicate through him, sometimes through telepathy, sometimes through direct channelling.

                    Mark Bennett

The recordings and transcriptions of such messages – from a variety of alien intellects – are an important part of services held by the society in present times.

After the initial contact, further commands followed for King.

One said: “There will shortly come another among you, he will stand tall among men with a shining countenance. This one will be attired in a single garment of the type now known to you. His shoes will be soft-topped yet not made of the skin of animals.

“He will approach the Earth’s leaders, they will ask of him his credentials and he will produce these. His magic will be greater than any upon the earth, greater than the combined materialistic might of all the armies.”

“They who heed not his words shall be removed from the Earth.

“This rock is now holy and will remain so for as long as the world exists, go ye forth and spread my word throughout the world, so that all men of pure heart may prepare for his coming.”

This is the statement that called the society into being. The belief that, one day, we might live as one with the aliens that inhabit our closest planetary neighbours.

Bennett explained: “So, what it means is that – at some point – an extra-terrestrial being will come to Earth openly, possibly in some kind of vehicle like what we might term a flying saucer.

“We don’t know where or when, but he will come as a cosmic master. He won’t be born among us, but it will be obvious to anyone with any sense that he is who he says he is.

“He will have great psychic powers. He will not age. When it says he will stand tall among men, that’s probably literally he will be really tall.
“There have been stories of them being around seven foot. He will demonstrate great powers, as much as is necessary.

“From that point onwards, people who continue to break the laws of God – for example, killing each other and warfare, hording massive amounts of wealth whilst others are starving – that will no longer be allowed to continue.

“So, then what will happen is that he won’t go around killing people or threatening them with weapons, but when those people die they will not reincarnate onto this planet. They will reincarnate onto another younger planet so that the only people left here will be those who are willing and able to build a new age upon Earth when we don’t have war, we don’t have poverty.

“Ultimately, we wouldn’t even have disease, although that would be further into the future.

“To create a heaven on Earth, basically.”

Theologian Examines If the Discovery of Alien Life Could Kill Religion

Listen to “E214 Theologian Examines If the Discovery of Alien Life Could Kill Religion” on Spreaker.

December 25, 2019                      (sputniknews.com)

• The Peters ETI Religious Crisis survey conducted by Professor Ted Peters from the Center for Theology and Natural Sciences at Berkeley (California) asked people of different faiths – or not – whether the discovery of alien lifeforms, or intelligent extraterrestrials, might pose a threat to Earthly religion. The conclusion was that representatives of all religions seem to be at ease with “the discovery of aliens”.

• The surveys showed that those of traditional religious beliefs were actually optimistic about the discovery of extraterrestrial beings. One Protestant remarked, “I’d share a Pew with an alien any day.” Those labeled as non-traditional “self-appointed” believers were more worried whether their religions would survive alien contact. Non-religious respondents were the only group who predicted consequences for believers, predicting that ‘religious traditions would suffer or collapse’.

• Apparently, religious people are okay with the concept that Earthlings are not the only children of God. Many responders reasoned that ‘God is the creator of a very large universe and this universe was not meant only for us, but to be shared with other creatures of God’.

• Other believers delved deeper into the budding field of study known as ‘Astrotheology’, theorizing that God would incarnate (as a Jesus figure) on every planet with an intelligent civilization. But some determined that “… the historical event of Jesus Christ’s birth (on Earth) suffices for God’s atonement of the entire cosmos.”

• In the end, Professor Peters reassured the (apparently all-Christian) believers that in the event of contact with an intelligent alien civilization, “things will probably go on the way they have been, without much change.”

 

For centuries it has been the domain of various religions to seek the truth out in the universe. The possibility that there are other creatures somewhere in galaxies far away, perhaps more intelligent than we are, prompted some to speculate that their discovery could mean an end to all religious beliefs or even cause an existential crisis.

The possible discovery of alien life forms poses no threat to traditional religions, which have determined the scheme of things around us, Professor Ted Peters from the Center for Theology and Natural Sciences at Berkeley told The Daily Express. According to him, “things will probably go on the way they have been, without much change.”

He shared his concerns over some scholars and scientists’ assumption that “if we encounter creatures in space more intelligent than we are, our religions would somehow suffer. On the contrary, he noted that even one of the surveys dedicated to this problem revealed that believers seem optimistic about the prospect of meeting extraterrestrial intelligence.

“The Peters ETI Religious Crisis survey found that this was not the case with self-appointed or self-defined believers in various religious traditions. They’re a trifle worried about their traditions, but for the most part, their respective traditions will survive,” he explained, sharing one of his favourite comments on the matter, which came from “a mainline Protestant”: “I’d share a Pew with an alien any day.”

Belief in Aliens Not So Far Out for Some Catholics

Listen to “E95 9-14-19 Belief in Aliens Not So Far Out for Some Catholics” on Spreaker.
Article by Carol Glatz                     September 5, 2019                  (angelusnews.com)

• Jesuit philosopher and astronomer, Father Jose Funes, has been appointed to the advisory council of METI International. Father Funes will join over 80 experts that make up the advisory council. METI’s president and founder, Douglas Vakoch, said, “It’s natural for METI to be in dialogue with Jesuit astronomers because they understand the science behind our search, giving us common ground, while also having expertise in theology, providing a new perspective for our scientists.”

• METI, or “Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence”, is an offshoot of SETI, “Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence” which began its search for ET in 1959 by scanning the sky for unusual radio and laser signals from sources that may indicate signs of alien technology. METI looks at what and how to communicate in a vast and mysterious universe.

• The Vatican has also been active in discussions about extraterrestrial life, the ethics of space exploration and the religious significance of a universe that could be teeming with life. Father Funes is the former director of the Vatican Observatory and an expert in galaxies and extragalactic astronomy.

• Father Funes, who holds the chair in science, religion and education at the Catholic University of Cordoba, Argentina, and also chairs a think tank initiative called “OTHER”, says that these Catholic organizations help us to understand alien life “in order to understand better who human beings are”. This is instrumental in educating the general public, teachers and students about the dialogue between science and religion.

• Vakoch is an astrobiologist and psychologist who spent 16 years at the SETI Institute, where he was director of Interstellar Message Composition. Vakoch says that if METI/SETI does find life out there someday, “many people will look to their religious leaders to help understand what it means to all of us down here on planet Earth.” “One of the great misconceptions of the general public is that discovering life beyond Earth will threaten people’s religious beliefs,” Vakoch says. “But time and again, across the centuries, we have seen that religions adapt to scientific discoveries. The same will be true if someday we discover we’re not alone in the universe.”

• Father Funes has introduced “something new or at least original” for SETI research to consider: the search for spiritual signs or signatures in the universe. Is spirituality a part of our evolutionary process? Vakoch said that “Hollywood portrayals of marauding aliens, coming to Earth to annihilate us” serve to generate fear or negative reactions to potential alien life. But there are “hopeful depictions of first contact,” says Vakoch, such as Steven Spielberg’s ‘E.T. the Extraterrestrial’ where a visitor comes to Earth, transforming lives and overcoming death through love. The same for ‘Starman,’ starring Jeff Bridges in the title role that was a thinly veiled reference to Christ.”

• Father Funes said the Catholic Church is optimistic in its faith because “we trust in God” when it comes to space exploration and messaging potential intelligent life. Vakoch says, “Some worry that learning about the existence of extraterrestrials will make humanity less unique. I suspect just the opposite will happen.” “[T]here will never be a duplicate of Homo Sapiens. There may be beings out there who are more wise or powerful than we are, but they will never be more human.”

[Editor’s Note]    It is no surprise that METI/SETI would team up with the Vatican in trying to dominate the limited soft disclosure dialog of the massive extraterrestrial presence, and the government’s long standing cover-up. They are both dedicated to doing the Deep State’s bidding. They see that the public’s revelation about the true existence of extraterrestrials is imminent, so who better than the combination of scientific and religious “experts” to guide the public through this transition. But the primary agenda of these institutions is to maintain control over the populace once the extraterrestrial presence is finally revealed. They want to position the Catholic religion as the savior of the people, thereby assuring its continuance after the extraterrestrial disclosure. While at the same time, METI/SETI will continue to deny any extraterrestrial presence until the very last minute.

 

More than 2 million people RSVP’d to a recent social media invitation to “storm” Area 51 in Nevada, in the hope of discovering whether alien life or spacecraft may be secretly stored at this U.S. Air Force base.

Though the proposed raid was a spoof, it has morphed into a real, more peaceful encounter. Now dubbed, “Alienstock,” the Sept. 20-22 festival aims to be a place “where believers gather” to discuss and celebrate confidence in the existence of alien life and the wonders of the unknown, according to its website, alienstockfestival.com.

But another brand of believers — a “Men in Black” of a spiritual kind — are the pope’s own Jesuit astronomers; they have long been active in discussions about extraterrestrial life, the ethics of space exploration and the religious significance of a universe that could be teeming with life.

The huge amount of interest the general public has shown in life existing elsewhere in the universe is part of the age-old question, “Are we alone?” said Jesuit Father Jose Funes, former director of the Vatican Observatory and an expert in galaxies and extragalactic astronomy.

The fascination with seeking extraterrestrial life or intelligence “reflects very deep human issues that are important for us” and makes people think about “who we are,” he told Catholic News Service in late August.

         Douglas Vakoch

“We have to become alien somehow” and step outside oneself “in order to understand better who human beings are,” said the priest, who holds the chair in science, religion and education at the Catholic University of Cordoba, Argentina. The chair and the think tank initiative, “OTHER,” he directs are instrumental for educating the general public, teachers and students about the dialogue between science and religion, he said.

Father Funes’ multidisciplinary expertise in astronomy, philosophy and theology has now earned him a unique place in ET research — serving on the advisory council of METI International.

METI, or Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence, takes the next step in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI.

The SETI project, which started in 1959, represents a major coordinated effort in scanning the sky for unusual radio and laser signals from sources that may indicate signs of alien technology. METI looks at what and how to communicate in a vast mysterious universe.

Part of the METI mission, according to its website, METI.org, is to conduct high-level scientific and multidisciplinary research, discuss the importance of searching for life beyond Earth and study the impact searching for, detecting or messaging ETI would have on the world.

More than 80 experts from a huge array of fields — including ethics, linguistics and theology — make up METI’s advisory council, and it was just last year that the group’s president and founder, Douglas Vakoch, asked Father Funes to join the team.
