7.12 – THE ALIEN AGENDA (5.1.15)


Washington, D.C. 2013. At the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, six former members of the United States Congress listened to testimony from former high-ranking government and military officials, along with a variety of scientists and researchers, about extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. One of the speakers was former Canadian Defense Minister, Paul Hellyer.

HON. PAUL HELLYER, FORMER CANADIAN MINISTER OF DEFENSE (video footage): The American people and the people of the world have a right to know. UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead. We live in a cosmos teeming with life.

“To have a former defense minister and deputy prime minister come out and say that the UFO phenomenon is real and that we’re being visited and that there’s a government cover-up is in of itself sensational. And he also expressed the view that some alien civilizations are concerned about humanity and do not want to share technology with the human race for fear that we are not ready for it, that we’ll abuse that technology. We are, after all, a race that has used atomic bombs on our own people.”

Nick Pope (British Ministry of Defense, 1985-2006),
(Author, Open Skies, Closed Minds)

Other distinguished speakers at the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure included nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, retired Air Force Captain Robert Salas, and a former official for the Federal Aviation Administration, John Callahan, all of whom corroborated Paul Hellyer’s assertion that we are being visited by otherworldly beings. They also claim that these visitors have an interest in our technological advancements, especially when it comes to nuclear weapons.

CAPTAIN ROBERT SALAS, USAF, RET. (video footage): These objects know, in great detail, how our missiles operate. They can shut down our missiles at any time. If you release that information to the public, what do you say to them about, you know...what kind of defense do we have against these things? 

Could the UFO phenomenon be real? And is it possible that extraterrestrials have been monitoring and perhaps even interfering with the technological advancement of mankind?  Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes and suggest that the earliest and perhaps strongest evidence of this can be found in the biblical story of the Tower of Babel.

According to the Book of Genesis, the Tower of Babel was built in Mesopotamia after the Great Flood. Some accounts suggest it reached nearly 30 stories, or 300 feet tall. It was described as a bridge between heaven and Earth, built by a unified people.

“In the Book of Genesis, Chapter 11, it says, “In the beginning, there was only one language and few words.” And then a group of people got together and decided that things could be improved. They learned how to make bricks, and this meant they could build buildings.”

– Rev. Barry H. Downing
(Author, The Bible and Flying Saucers)

“Someone got the idea of building a tower, a tower to heaven, to make a name for ourselves. Well, this starts to become hubris, where you start challenging the gods. This is a key idea, a certain kind of arrogance that is starting to think that you are a god. And so as the tower lifts up, God is annoyed.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

“The powers up in the sky thought, ‘Uh-huh. We cannot let them succeed with this, because if they succeed in doing this, who knows what they’ll do next?’”

– Rev. Barry H. Downing
(Author, The Bible and Flying Saucers)

“God comes down and says, “Wow, they can actually accomplish this feat; they can actually build a tower up into the heavens.” So let’s disperse their language, and then they can’t communicate, and then they can’t build this tower.”

Robert Cargill, Ph.D.
(Former: Biblical Archaeologist, UCLA),
(Current: Asst. Prof. of Classic & Religious Studies,
Univ. of Iowa)

Biblical scholars contend that the story merely attempts to offer an explanation for the various languages on Earth. But Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest the biblical account may actually reveal a greater truth about extraterrestrial interest in the technological progress of mankind.

“From the other literature that we have peripheral to the Bible, a much deeper story is told. What was this tower? According to this ancient source, this ancient technology that they discovered was to reach to the heavens.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“When you look at the story of the Tower of Babel, it’s essentially a story of mankind developing technology and being like the gods, being like our extraterrestrial creators. And therefore, mankind was, in a sense, kept from reaching a technological level.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“The word “Babel” means “gate to God,” and some believe that the gate to God was in fact a star gate, a ladder, tower or stairway that reached into the heavens. And so when God saw that humankind were building a star gate, this was too much.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“Well, what happened next? Powers that be, watched. They observed. They spoke to one another, saying, “We have to descend to the Earth to bring an assault upon the builders of the tower.”  What kind of an assault? The biblical text is very clear. They touched the minds of the people and corrupted their spirit of unity.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“The Tower of Babel story really relates to a decision that the so-called gods had made: human beings were not only supposed to speak different languages, they were also supposed to fight with each other. They were supposed to come into conflict with each other. And as long as they’re squabbling with each other, they’re not gonna unite and fight against you.”

 – William Bramley (Author, The Gods of Eden)

“I believe whoever got involved realized, these human beings are coming along pretty darned fast. We got to slow this down a little bit, and that’s what they did.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

Is it possible, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that otherworldly beings have been carefully watching the advancements of humans and have intervened, creating barriers as a way to keep mankind from obtaining powerful technology? Perhaps further clues can be found by examining the remnants of an ancient civilization that appears to have been destroyed by a massive explosion.
