In spite of the environmental degradation, the conservative media (spearheaded by Republicans, Christian fundamentalists, and right-wing radio mouthpieces like Rush Limbaugh and Dennis Praeger in addition to entire media outlets like the increasingly ridiculous FOX News Network and CNN) put out stories lending doubt to the issue. Stories are frequently fed in and reported with a smirk and a ludicrous air of smugness.
There should be no doubt that there are "others." The evidence is overwhelm-ing and not hidden. But since our government, and governments around the world and over time, lie to us on a daily basis, until there is a false "alien invasion" people will simply do what they have been trained to do, say what they had been programmed to say, and slouch in ignorance.
Akasa-devas, asuras, nagas, garudas, supannas, yakkhas, rakshasas, rudras, gandhabbas, bhumma-devas, djinn, nephilim, watchers, cherubim, seraphim, angels, arch-angels, grays, reptilians, and others certainly left their mark -- whether they were seen (transformed into dense flesh) or unseen (cloaked or more subtle in form).
The great cultural (now considered only "religious" or mythological) texts from civilizations around the world (e.g., Sumeria, India, Dogon of Africa, and the Semitic tribes of the Middle East, to say nothing of government reports released in the UK and USSR in recent years) make it clear there are extraterrestrial crafts in orbit around the earth. There is little doubt that they have communicated. "God" in the Old Testament and in Sumerian and similar texts is always plural, referring not to the idealized deity of oneness but to an overlord race of being not to be questioned.
And all of this is consistent with a Buddhist outlook. The Buddha, like Christ, is constantly to be seen making references to nagas (reptilians/dragons). He frequently refers back to Aryans (a super race of invaders whose advanced technologies conquered the South and Southeast Asia). Indian ("Hindu") and Greek ("Pagan") stories are full of the exploits of these gods or godlings, celestial and terrestrial.
The entire universe (or "world system") is populated with countless worlds and countless beings. That this should sound "crazy" is testament to the success of marketing campaigns we are subjected to. Until Gore showed otherwise (while concealing the biggest industrial polluters in America), global warming was ridiculed.
Once someone gets past the immensity that "we are not alone," one may experience anger that we have been kept in the dark systematically. It has been obedience by design. And although the information has repeatedly been leaked into the collective consciousness, the information gatekeepers, ever-skeptical scientists (who exhibit little backbone in admitting to believing anything the government and/or their faculty committees have not first approved), and conservative bullies (and front organizations like NASA) still set out red herrings to re-hide the truth every chance they get.
Natural Explanation Found for [Some] UFOs
The dancing lights have appeared above most thunderstorms throughout history, but researchers did not start studying them until one accidentally recorded a sighting on camera in 1989.
"Lightning from the thunderstorm excites the electric field above, producing a flash of light called a sprite," said Colin Price, a geophysicist at Tel Aviv University in Israel. "We now understand that only a specific type of lightning is the trigger that initiates sprites aloft." More>>
