Professor to Offer Course on UFOs at Duke University

November 27, 2018                     (digitaljournal.com)

• David J. Halperin, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will teach a course early next year on “UFOs – Encounter, Mystery, Myth.” The course will be offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Duke University.

• As a professor of Judaic studies at UNC, Halperin’s specialty has been religious traditions of heavenly ascensions and otherworldly journeys. He has authored five books on Jewish mysticism and two on UFOs, both fiction and non-fiction. He claims that “UFOs are a myth,” emerging from the depths of our unconscious and bearing vital messages. “And myths are real,” says Halperin.

• The OLLI course will study the UFO landing at Westall High School in Melbourne, Australia, in April 1966, the myth of the “Men in Black”, the experience of alien abduction, and the enigma of what happened near Roswell, New Mexico in the summer of 1947. The concluding session will analyze the new respectability that UFOs have attained since the 2016 election, and what it means.

[Editor’s Note]  The good news is that this could be a crack in the academic world’s refusal to treat UFOs and the extraterrestrial presence seriously, particularly at the university level. The bad news is that a religious devotee is teaching it from a theological point of view. Will this professor’s students walk away from the course believing that UFO’s are some sort of figment of the imagination in order to validate a narrow religious perspective? Or will it cast aside preconceived religious paradigms and view the extraterrestrial influence on earth as a reality with serious consequences to our civilization if we don’t wake up, accept the truth, and utilize our mass consciousness to protect our sovereignty as a species before it’s too late?

 

DURHAM, N.C. — David J. Halperin, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will teach a course early next year on “UFOs – Encounter, Mystery, Myth.” The course will be offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Duke University and will run from January 7 to March 25, 2019. All interested persons are welcome.

“UFOs are a myth,” says Halperin, “and myths are real.” Like collective dreams, they emerge from the depths of our unconscious, bearing vital messages for us. The question to ask of them is not “Where do UFOs come from?” or “How do they fly?” but “What do they mean?”—for us as individuals, as a culture, as a species.

        David J. Halperin

Halperin was a teenage “UFOlogist” back in the 1960s. He received his Ph.D. from Berkeley in 1977, and from 1976 until his retirement in 2000 he taught Judaic studies in UNC’s Department of Religious Studies. His area of special interest has been religious traditions of heavenly ascensions and otherworldly journeys. He’s the author of five books on Jewish mysticism and messianism and a novel, Journal of a UFO Investigator, published in 2011 by Viking Press and translated into Spanish, Italian, and German. His non-fiction book Intimate Alien: The Hidden Story of the UFO will be published in 2020 by Stanford University Press.

The OLLI course will begin with a case study: the supposed UFO landing at Westall High School in Melbourne, Australia, in April 1966. It will explore the myth of the “Men in Black,” the experience of alien abduction, and the enigma of what happened near Roswell, New Mexico, in the summer of 1947. The concluding session will pause to notice the remarkable new respectability UFOs have attained since the 2016 election, and ask once more: what does it mean?

What Has the U.S. Government Been hiding About UFOs?

by Dom Armentano             January 16, 2018               (tcpalm.com)

• Last December, when The New York Times reported that the Pentagon had authorized a UFO research from 2007 to 2012, and the Department of Defense released a Navy F-18 cockpit video of an encounter with a UFO, some in the media were exclaiming that this was the first time that the government had acknowledged UFOs. But the belief that the U.S. intelligence community had been previously unaware of the exotic nature of UFOs is just bogus.

• The U.S. government has known about UFOs since at least Roswell (and the other New Mexico crashes) in 1947, but it chose to hide this information from the American people. A declassified Air Force document from September 23, 1947 by General Nathan Twining acknowledges reported that flying discs “are real and not visionary or fictitious” and because the discs were “evasive when sighted … Some of the objects are (intelligently) controlled.” Since then, the U.S. military has had dozens of reports from experienced military pilots, FAA controllers and ground personnel of UFOs that displayed technology far in advance of our own.

• The deep intelligence state has known for at least 70 years that some UFOs were real, yet it has chosen to keep the information confidential or denied that it even existed. When this writer called for UFO disclosure in 2008, he says that his professional colleagues in law and economics thought he had lost my mind. The Cato Institute abruptly ended its 20-year affiliation with him as an adjunct scholar the day after his first UFO article appeared.

• The decades-long policy of secrecy and denial on a subject as important as UFOs is foolish and dangerous in the extreme and puts our entire democratic process at risk. The good news is these perverse attitudes are changing somewhat. The New York Times’ Pentagon project revelations have created an important opportunity for more serious media coverage of government UFO research. We must take advantage of that opportunity now and push for open Congressional hearings and full disclosure.

 

On Dec. 16, three experienced journalists posted a bombshell story on the New York Times website: The Pentagon had authorized a secret research project (2007-2012) to study unidentified flying objects.
Even more importantly, Luis Elizondo, the Pentagon project coordinator and a career intelligence officer, later asserted that in his opinion some UFOs were real objects and appeared to demonstrate a technology that the U.S. did not have and did not understand. To highlight that point, the Pentagon also released “gun camera” film of a Navy pilot’s 2004 close encounter with an object that displayed wildly unconventional flight characteristics.

The mainstream media was caught completely off guard by the sensational Pentagon revelations, although they should not have been. Some breathlessly opined that never before had a U.S. intelligence agency acknowledged UFOs were solid objects that defied conventional explanation. Well, not exactly. While that assertion is true in some narrow sense, the belief that the U.S. intelligence community had been unaware of the exotic nature of UFOs until the recent Pentagon study is just totally bogus.

In point of fact, they have known about the unconventional nature of the phenomenon for decades and have chosen to hide the bulk of that information (dozens of military gun camera films, for example) from Congress and especially from the American people.

Contrary to the media coverage of the Pentagon story, the U.S. defense and intelligence communities actually have known about the exotic nature of UFOs since at least 1947. There exists, for example, a once-secret document (dated Sept. 23, 1947) written by Gen. Nathan Twining (Air Material Command) that acknowledges reported flying discs “are real and not visionary or fictitious” and that the discs “must be considered evasive when sighted … which lends belief to the possibility that some of the objects are (intelligently) controlled.”

And since the U.S. military had dozens of reports from experienced military pilots and FAA controllers and ground personnel that the discs could hover, turn on a dime and then accelerate at incredible speeds — unlike any technology that existed then or now — it was implicit even in 1947 that these flying objects were not ours.

In short, the deep intelligence state has known for at least 70 years that some UFOs were real; yet it has chosen to keep the information in support of that conclusion either confidential or simply denied that it even existed. But a decades-long public policy of secrecy and denial on a subject as important and mind-bending as UFOs is foolish and dangerous in the extreme and puts our entire democratic process at risk.

Craft With Egyptian Hieroglyphs, Greek Letters & Handprints To Steer

by Arjun Walia           November 18, 2017              (collective-evolution.com)

  • It’s impossible to say whether UFOs represent a genuine threat to humanity or not, but to assume they do without learning more is unwise.

  • Take, for example, possibly the most infamous of UFO crashes, the Roswell crash. When it came time to back-engineer the craft, no engine was discovered. When the ET pilots placed their humanoid hands in slots on the pilot’s chair, they would guide the craft using their mind.

  • Both Stanton Friedman, a retired nuclear physicist and longtime UFO researcher, and U.S. army veteran Colonel Philip Corso have pointed out that the Roswell craft was adorned with characters from the Greek alphabet and Egyptian Hieroglyphics.

  • University of Nebraska Physics Professor, Dr. Jack Kasher, was quoted as saying “There is another way, whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.”

  • Former Director of National Intelligence, Louis Elizondo, and former director for Advanced Systems Development at Lockheed Skunk Works, Steve Justice, both now members of To The Stars Academy – have stated that the UFO phenomenon is indeed real and involves a physics we have yet to understand, and that there are technologies within the Black Budget world that could benefit humanity.

 

It’s great to see the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials amass more credibility as the years pass. It receives little attention from the mainstream, at least beyond ridicule, so this may come as a surprise to some, but there are hundreds of high ranking people who have come forward to tell the world that UFOs are not only real, but also that some of them are in fact extraterrestrial in origin.

There are too many examples to choose from, such as a former Chief of Defence and Chairman of the NATO Military Committee telling us that “we are being visited, and have been visited by people from outer space.” More recently, Louis Elizondo, a former National Counterintelligence Executive and Director of National Intelligence, became the Director of Global Security and Special Programs for Tom Delonge’s recently launched To The Stars academy, just one week out of retirement.

Other high ranking executives from the intelligence and aerospace community have also joined this program, including Steve Justice, the recent director for Advanced Systems Development at Lockheed Skunk Works. They aim to let the world know that we are not alone, and that there are highly advanced technological objects in our atmosphere performing maneuvers that defy our laws of physics.

In a recent video of them speaking during a live broadcast, Elizondo mentions that through is work, he learned “the phenomenon is indeed real” and it deals with a physics we have yet to understand, and also that there are technologies within the Black Budget world that could benefit humanity.

“There is another way, whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.” –  Dr. Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Nebraska 

Roswell

“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. . . . We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time. . . . I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real.”– Doctor Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the moon

For someone who hasn’t spent time researching this subject, it might be hard to believe that an actual extraterrestrial craft crash landed on planet Earth. But when you take into account the above statements, especially the most recent coming from Tom Delonge’s team, along with hundreds of thousands of documents that show these objects are commonly tracked on radar, and military jets are constantly scrambled to check them out, it becomes far more plausible.

The Roswell incident is one of dozens, if not hundreds of downed extraterrestrial craft resulting from human aggression. This is better explained by Paul Hellyer, Canada’s former Minister of National Defence: “Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead, we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.”

Hieroglyphics found on Roswell craft

Elizondo shares a similar story, stating that one of his jobs was to track and observe these objects, as he was head of the program which investigates “aeriel threats.”

To The Stars will be working directly with the U.S. government to release authentic videos and images of real UFOs to the public, but there are already many credible videos and photos of these objects, and it’s a shame they must come from a government authority in order for people to deem them credible. This is a problem within itself, as our government has deceived us on so many topics, on so many levels, making it extremely difficult to trust their intentions on any subject, be it UFOs or terrorism. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see where this initiative goes.

Again, threat is the main word here. It’s impossible to say whether these objects represent a genuine threat to humanity or not, but to assume they do without learning more is unwise.

Bottom of Form

There is evidence proving the existence of this kind of exotic technology that dates back to before the Second World War. A classic example would be the CIA keeping tabs on developments in Germany, as explained by this document, which looked into “a German newspaper” that “recently published an interview with George Klein, famous engineer and aircraft expert, describing the experimental construction of ‘flying saucers’ carried out by him from 1941 to 1945.” 

Then there is the story of a large UFO hovering over L.A., which was witnessed by one million people. Dubbed the “Battle of Los Angeles,” it was an event that showed us how the U.S. military was learning to lie about UFOs five years prior to the Roswell Incident, which occurred in 1947.
So, as you can see, there is a lot to this.
