Pentagon cover-up: UFOs found Noah’s Ark!

Not really.

But on the way into work,  I happened to catch about 5 minutes of the Steve Quayle show on XM radio.  There is political commentary on this station in the evening but I always switch to another station in the morning, as Quayle’s program is devoted to talk about things like aliens, pending doomsday scenarios and ancient astronauts.  But today, before I had a chance to touch the dial,  I heard the word’s “Noah’s Ark”, which quickly stayed my hand.

I find the obsession some people have for the Biblical flood scenario fascinating.  The Flood is essential to the cause of Creationism,  since the magnitude of such an event is said to be sufficiently energetic to sculpt an Earth that only appears to be millions of years old.  But, no offense folks, I’ve always found the idea that this is more than a Biblical fable to be just a little bit goofy.

Just like talk of the Mayan prediction of the Earth’s demise in 2012.  Or UFO abductions.  Or Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster. Or the prophecies of Nostradamus and John of Patmos or the ghosts of the Nazis.   Essentially the combined prime-time line-up of the History, Discovery and Learning Channels. And let’s not forget the silliness of filming the hi-jinks of a semi-literate Alaskan ex-governor’s dysfunctional family – but that’s a different (although perhaps related) story.

Within the five minutes that I listened to Quayle’s program the talk went from an international conspiracy to hide the discovery of Noah’s Ark, to the pending Mayan apocalypse and how it was predicted in Luke’s gospel and the Book of Revelations to the ongoing Pentagon cover up of visiting alien spacecraft (fallen angels), finishing with the coming New World Order that will overshadow the tyrannical excesses of Nazi Germany. The guest on the program (who’s name I did not catch) as well as the few callers, all professed to be Christians who possessed special knowledge of the world given to them by studying the Bible and other ancient texts.  The evidence was incontrovertible, they claimed, and the inability of most of the world’s people to see the handwriting on the wall was proof that Satan was actively at work in the world, undermining the will of God. It was up to each and every Christian to spread the word and take up the good fight.

The crazy thing is, that though it is easy to call these folks crack-pots, they are not that rare of a species.  Similar ideas can be heard from pulpits across the country (like the Wasilla Assembly of God)  and on numerous “legitimate” websites.  Even a mainstream media personality like Glenn Beck talks of the pending apocalypse, apparently orchestrated by the minions of Satan.   In their world,  ‘faith’ trumps reasonable skepticism every time.

Madness.

    Hello,

    I work for the PeaceJam Foundation http://www.peacejam.org and we have been working with Mayan Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchu Tum for 15 years.

    We recently completed a documentary called 2012: The True Mayan Prophecy (49 minutes) and it features actual Mayans including Rigoberta Menchu Tum – the 1992 Nobel Peace Laureate. Everyone puts words in Mayan’s mouths but what did they really say? Not only do we have Rigoberta delivering the truth, but her Elders and Shamans, too. The doc also features the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu speaking of what 2012 will bring us. Answers can be found here http://www.westword.com/mayan2012prophecy

    Each view of this documentary costs USD $1.99. In this country you can’t buy a Big Mac for that price. The money raised will benefit the PeaceJam Foundation and the Rigoberta Menchu Tum Foundation.

    Or you can watch Sting and his friends discuss 2012 for USD $30.

    Can you let your readership know about this?

    Thanks!

    Sounds like Coast to Coast, a radio program for basement dwellers wild-eyed flower children 1960s–but an interesting listen on lonely roads in the middle of the night.

    You said ” In their world, ‘faith’ trumps reasonable skepticism every time.Madness”
    It is maddness to them who arn’t spiritualy diserned, 1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

      Hm. My take on that quote is more along the lines of how difficult it is for people, including many if not most Christians, to discern the true meaning of the good news of Jesus of Nazareth. That salvation, both personal and cultural, comes through loving and forgiving one another, especially those who are outside the group, the enemy, the different, the “pagan”. Of course many Christians claim to understand this and willingly pay lip service to it, but to actually put in practice is folly for almost all. Hence the wars fought in God’s name, up to and including the recent incursions into Iraq and Afghanistan, and the many devout Christian men sitting on the boards of large corporations, earning million dollar salaries and bonuses while foreclosing on families and shipping jobs out of the country.

      Spiritual discernment is about love and what it can do when put into practice, not about doctrines, dogmas or whether or not religious myths are factually true.
