Jacques Vallee On The Miracle At Fatima: It Was A UFO Encounter

 


 

 

Vallee: Fatima Event Was A UFO

 
Excerpted from _Cosmic Conflict_ 

More seriously, the description made at Fatima, Portugal, OF A
SILVERY DISK WHICH FLEW THROUGH THE SKY, WAS SEEN BY SEVENTY THOUSAND
WITNESSES AND WAS PHOTOGRAPHED AS IT MANEUVERED, deserves a place in
our resume of the 'flying saucer' legend..." 

In this same book, Vallee states: "The crowd that stood in a field
in Fatima, a small village in the district of Leiria, some sixty-two
miles north of Lisbon, on October 13, 1917, was waiting there for a
miracle, because three children had been assured such an event would
take place after a number of meetings with an 'entity' that came from
the sky in a globe of light. The witnesses were three shepherds:
Lucia, aged ten, and her cousins Francisco Mario and Jacinto Marto,
aged nine and seven. Today, Fatima is one of the most celebrated
places of pilgrimage in the entire world. 

"...According to the very words of the Reverend General Vicar of
Leiria, who was one of the witnesses, the lady came in an 'aeroplane
of light,' an 'immense globe, flying westwards, at moderate speed. It
irradiated a very bright light.' Some other witnesses saw a white
being coming out of the globe, which several minutes later took off,
disappearing in the direction of the sun. 

"The last episode was the miracle itself. It was seen by seventy
thousand persons, among whom were pious individuals and atheists,
clergymen and reporters from a socialist newspaper. As promised, it
happened on October 13 at noon. Among the crowd was Professor Almeida
Garrett, of Coimbra University, a scientist, who described the
phenomena in the following terms: 'It was raining hard, and the rain
trickled down everyone's clothes. Suddenly, the sun shone through the
dense cloud which covered it: everybody looked in its direction. IT
LOOKED LIKE A DISC, OF A VERY DEFINITE CONTOUR. It was not dazzling.
I don't think that it could be compared to a dull silver disk, as
someone said later in Fatima. No. It rather possessed a clear,
changing brightness, which one could compare to a pearl. It looked
like a polished wheel. This is not poetry. My eyes have seen it. This
clear-shaped disk suddenly began turning. It rotated with increasing
speed. Suddenly, the crowd began crying with anguish. The sun
(disk?), revolving all the time, began falling toward the earth,
reddish and bloody, threatening to crush everyone under its fiery
weight...'" 

"...Fatima was a modern event, yet it is already clouded with the
distortions of 'belief'. The Photographs of the object had
'disappeared.' The key prophecy has been suppressed. Lucia shut
herself away from the world. As the years passed, the object was
turned into a 'dancing sun,' the angel hair became 'rose petals,' and
the entire phenomena was removed from the field of science and
entrusted to the religionists... 

"There have been many modern miracles of the Fatima type, but they
rarely gain much attention outside of religious circles. The flying
saucers get much more publicity than the miracles. 

"Between the years 1937 and 1945, an entity who identified herself
as the Queen of the Universe appeared more than 100 times to four
young girls in the tiny hamlet of Heede, Germany. The girls, aged
twelve through fourteen, were Anna Schulte, Greta and Maria
Ganseforth, and Susan Bruns. These visions began in November, 1937
and continued throughout the war, with the Lady urging the world to
'pray, pray much, especially for the conversion of sinners.' Hitler
was probably none too happy about all of this, especially since he
openly considered himself to be Antichrist. 

"(There are all kinds of stories and rumors that Hitler was a trance
medium himself and was in contact with evil entities who advised him
and directed many of his genocidal policies.) 

"Lesser miracles have included weeping statues and pictures which
seem to fit into the poltergeist category. 

"...On Sunday, June 18, 1961, four young girls were playing marbles
outside of the little village of Garabandal, Spain, when they
suddenly saw an 'angel.' The girls, Mary Cruz Gonzales, eleven,
Conchita Gonzales, twelve, Jacinta Gonzales, twelve, and Mary Loly
Mazon, twelve (none of the Gonzales girls were directly related),
said that he appeared to be about nine years old, was dressed in a
long, seamless blue robe, had a small face with BLACK EYES, and 'fine
hands and short fingernails.' For some reason, he gave the impression
of being very strong. This figure was surrounded by a dazzling glow
and faded into thin air without saying a word... 

"Soon after these initial experiences, the girls began to go into
trances (termed a state of ecstasy by religionists) during which they
would see the Lady. Sometimes these trances would last for hours, and
the girls would remain fixed in an awkward kneeling position and
their heads thrown back and their eyes staring at the vision, totally
oblivious to the hundreds of people swarming around them. 

"The Lady was accompanied by two angels on this occasion. The
'angels' were dressed alike, 'as if they were twins.' The Lady had
long, thin hands, a long angular face 'with a fine nose.' and lips
which were 'a bit thin.' She seemed to be 'rather tall' (Note:
Elsewhere in his book Keel states that many of the "Men In Black" or
"People" in black reported in other incidents were beings of the
above description - Branton). Her hair was a deep nut brown, parted
in the center. This is, of course, an almost classic description of
the 'long finger' UFO entities described by many contactees. 

Even more startling, on the Lady's right the girls could see 'A
SQUARE OF RED FIRE FRAMING A TRIANGLE WITH AN EYE AND SOME WRITING.
THE LETTER WAS IN AN OLD ORIENTAL SCRIPT!'" 

(Note: this also seems to correspond with the ancient "Eye of Horus"
of Egypt, which according to Illuminists represented Sirius and was a
major emblem within the Babylonian Mystery Religion. There have been
alleged photographs of obelisks on the Moon of the exact shape and
description as those found in St. Peter's Square in Rome, in Egypt,
and originally in Babylon. These four-sided, pyramidal-capped
obelisks traditionally were the "alters" around which the ancient
worshippers of Baal practiced their occult arts and were a
combination of phallic and Sun symbols. Could such obelisks be a
connecting factor between the ancient Babylonian-Egyptian "Mystery"
society and exterran societies of a similar nature, such as perhaps
the one alleged to exist in the Sirius system? - Branton). 

"The angels in all these cases sound suspiciously like our
celebrated 'little men' . 

"...The many messages conveyed by the Lady have conformed precisely
to Catholic dogma, using phrases and references which are significant
to trained theologists but would be meaningless to children. The
message of October 18, 1961, as dictated by the children, read: 'We
must make many sacrifices, do much penance. We must visit the Blessed
Sacrament frequently... unless we do this, a punishment will befall
us.' 

"...On Friday, June 18, 1965, Conchita entered a trance and was
purportedly given the following statements by the Lady: 

"'As my message of the eighteenth of October has not been complied
with, and as it has not been made known to the world, I am telling
you that this is the last one. Previously, the cup was filling; now
it is brimming over... You are now given the last warnings.' (Take
note of the remarkable different between the humble, patient and
longsuffering Christ of the New Testament, and this boasting,
impatient and wrathful "Whore" of Babylon that has appeared to so
many children the world over. This is certainly not like the "Mary"
of the New Testament and, in fact, it is not! - Branton). 

"There is a wealth of evidence and testimony which leaves little
doubt that these children of Garabandal were being possessed by some
outside influence and were undergoing a supernormal experience... 

"THE NATION OF THE THIRD EYE - There is no reason to think that the
four children of Garabandal," Keel continues, "had ever seen, or even
knew about, the eye symbol on the Great Seal of the United States
(ie. the seal of the Illuminati -Branton). Nor is it remotely
possible that the children, or any of the elders of Garabandal, could
have known of the importance that this symbol plays in the silent
contactee situation. In fact, very few ufologists are aware of it. 

"THOSE MYSTERIOUS 'MEN IN BLACK' WHO TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD IN
UNLICENSED CADILLACS HAVE REPORTEDLY BEEN SEEN WEARING LAPEL PINS
BEARING THE SYMBOL. THEY HAVE ALSO IDENTIFIED THEMSELVES DIRECTLY AS
BEING FROM 'THE NATION OF THE THIRD EYE.' SO WE CALL THE SYMBOL THE
THIRD EYE. 

It would be interesting to find out why some cultures regarded it as
evil, while others used it to symbolize Deity. 

"Why did the Third Eye appear beside the vision of Garabandal? Was
it a symbol of identification? Or was it a warning? 

"...Eight young girls on the island of Cabra in the Philippines
began to suffer visions in the early part of the year (March, 1968),
and the feminine voice of 'the Virgin' promised a miracle. During the
last week of March about 3,000 persons poured onto the island and
waited. Some, including a university professor, a prominent
obstetrician, and an army major, reported seeing A CIRCULAR OBJECT
over the island. It whirled and changed through all the colors of the
spectrum, they said.

"Among the many correlations, you will note that the month of March
and April have often played an important part in these events, just
as March and April have always produced many of our principal UFO
sightings. These religious manifestations are clearly a variation on
the UFO manifestations (or vice versa). The same methods of
communication are being employed in both phenomena, and the UFO
entities bear a marked resemblance to the religious entities..." 

William Cooper continues with his report by stating: 

"...A symposium was held in 1957 which was attended by some of the
great scientific minds then living. They reached the conclusion that
by, or shortly after, the year 2000 the planet WOULD self-destruct
due to increased population and man's exploitation of the environment
WITHOUT ANY HELP FROM GOD OR THE ALIENS. 

"By secret Executive order of President Eisenhower, the JASON
Scholars were ordered to study this scenario and make recommendations
from their findings. The JASON Society CONFIRMED the findings of the
scientists and made three recommendations called ALTERNATIVES 1, 2,
AND 3. 

"Alternative 1 was to use nuclear devices to blast holes in the
stratosphere from which the heat and pollution could escape into
space. They would then change the human cultures from that of
exploitation into cultures of environmental protection. Of the three
this was decided to be the least likely to succeed due to the
inherent nature of man and the additional damage the nuclear
explosions would themselves create. 

THE EXISTENCE OF A HOLE IN THE OZONE LAYER MAY INDICATE THAT
ALTERNATIVE 1 MIGHT HAVE BEEN ATTEMPTED. THIS IS, HOWEVER, ONLY
CONJECTURE. 

"ALTERNATIVE 2 WAS TO BUILD A VAST NETWORK OF UNDERGROUND CITIES AND
TUNNELS IN WHICH A SELECT REPRESENTATION OF ALL CULTURES AND
OCCUPATIONS WOULD SURVIVE AND CARRY ON THE HUMAN RACE. THE REST OF
HUMANITY WOULD BE LEFT TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES 

ON THE SURFACE OF THE PLANET. We know that these facilities have
been built and are ready and waiting for the chosen few to be
notified. 

"Alternative 3 was to exploit the alien and conventional technology
in order for a select few to leave the earth and establish colonies
in outer space. I am not able to either confirm or deny the existence
of 'batch consignments' of human slaves, which would be used for the
manual labor as a part of the plan. The Moon, code-named ADAM, was
the object of primary intrest, followed by the planet Mars, code-
named EVE. I am now in possession of official NASA photographs of one
of the moon bases. I believe that the Mars colony is also a reality
(Note: There are some who suggest that "global warming" may not
actually be taking place as believed, and that this "scare" is based
largely on computerized models or simulations which have not always
coincided with actual temperature variations. Is it possible that the
earth is attempting to "heal" itself? Could it be that to some extent
"global warming" is more-or-less an "excuse" that is being used to
justify huge expenditures for subterran and exterran "bases" for
secret government use such as in the "Alternative" scenarios? This is
of course, even if true, no reason to destroy this planet, as
pollution of the air, water and earth IS something which could lead
to an eventual devastation of this Earth. - Branton). 

"As a delaying action, ALL THREE ALTERNATIVES included BIRTH
CONTROL, STERILIZATION, AND THE INTRODUCTION OF DEADLY MICROBES TO
CONTROL OR SLOW THE GROWTH OF EARTH'S POPULATION. AIDS is only ONE
result of these plans. It was decided BY THE ELITE that since the
population must be reduced and controlled, it would be in the best
intrest of the human race to rid ourselves of undesirable elements of
our society. Specific targeted populations included BLACKS,
HISPANICS, and HOMOSEXUALS."

High Strangeness In Fatima Portugal: 1917

 

BY

ALEX MISTRETTA

The miracle of the sun as the event described above would eventually be known, happened on October 13,1917.  The last day that the “Lady” appeared in Fatima, and had promised a miracle on that very day.  The apparitions began six months earlier on the 13 of May to three local Children.  Lucia dos Santos age 10 and her two cousins Francisco Marto and his sister Jacinta the youngest by two years.  They were tending to their sheep in an area near Fatima called Cova da Iria when Lucia noticed a couple of flashes in the sky.  The weather was promising and there was not a single cloud in the sky, but Lucia cautiously thought that perhaps the weather was turning and that they should head back home. To add to her uneasiness, she recalled a day a couple years earlier when she noticed a lone little cloud in the sky that seemed to take the form of a person.

Back to the present day, Francisco and Jacinta also noticed the flashes in the sky and were ready to head back to Fatima when by an oak tree a lady appeared. Four feet in height, dressed in white with dark black eyes she was illuminated by a very bright light. When she spoke, she told them not to be afraid and that she was from heaven.

Lucia, the leader of the three asked the lady why she was here. She simply told them that she would appear every 13th of every month for the next six months. She told them to pray the rosary daily and that, sadly, they would have to suffer greatly for the sins of the world.  A month later on June 13th she appeared as promised and informed Lucia that she would be taking Jacinta and Francisco to heaven very soon. A prophecy fulfilled two years later when Jacinta and Francisco both died of the Spanish flu; an epidemic that was sweeping Europe at the time.

Having heard about the May apparition, a small number of villagers came to see the lady. They initially saw nothing, but heard a murmur;  voices from far away was the way they described it. When the lady disappeared, a cloud rose up above the oak tree, seen by all and heading east.

By July 13th over three thousand people were now at Cova da Iria, expecting a vision. Again the lady could only be seen by the children, but a strange humming could be heard by all and a large clap like thunder shook the ground.  This was the day the lady gave the children what she called the three secrets.

THE SECRETS
The first was a rather stereotypical vision of hell, with demons, fire and burning souls. A warning of what may befell the world. The second was a plea for Russia to be consecrated to “My Immaculate Heart” .  Otherwise another great war will erupt. She also went on to say that before this happens a great unknown light will be seen in the sky. It will be a sign of upcoming war and that God is about to punish the world for its sins.  A message that she repeated on following visits.

The third secret, Lucia insisted was not to be revealed right away. She also insisted that perhaps it would be best to wait until 1960, for the secret to be better understood across the world. The third secret written down by Lucia in the 1940’s became the most heavily guarded document at the Vatican. Hints were given through out the years, and then subsequently denied.

The hints usually were of an apocalyptic nature, and mentioned a great danger to the faith and to the world.  In any case, the third secret was revealed by the Vatican in 2000. The official statement stated that the third Secret was a warning against persecution of the Church, and quite honestly not much else. A discussion on the veracity of the Vatican’s revelation and the behind the scene intrigue associated with it, is beyond the scope of this article, which after all is about Fatima, Marian apparitions and UFOs.  Which brings us to October 13, 1917;  the day the “Lady” promised a miracle.

MIRACLE OF THE SUN
A scientist from nearby Coimbra University,named Almeida Garret was among the 70,000 people present that day.  He himself never saw the actual apparition, instead witnessed a bluish column of smoke.

This is how he described what happened next:”It was raining hard, and the rain trickled down everyone’s clothes.  Suddenly, the sun shone through the dense cloud which covered it;  everybody looked in its direction.  It looked like a disc, of a very definite contour.  It was not dazzling. I don’t think that it could be compared to a dull silver disk, as someone said later in Fatima. No. It rather possessed a clear, changing brightness, which one could compare to a pearl.  It looked like a polished wheel.

This is not poetry. My eyes have seen it.  This clear shaped disk suddenly began turning.  It rotated with increasing speed.  Suddenly, the crowd began crying with anguish.  The sun, revolving all the time, began falling towards the earth, reddish and bloody, threatening to crush everyone under its fiery weight”.

The correlation between Marian apparitions and “miracles of the sun” is not solely relegated to Fatima; and pattern does emerge. It seemed like a shiny wheel separated from the sun and headed towards earth,… and some sort of shinning balloons began to emerge from the sun… This last statement is not from Fatima, but from Medjugorje, Croatia in 1981, and was another miracle promised by a “lady” claiming to be the mother of God.

BRAZIL
Since 1917, there has been hundreds of Marian apparitions worldwide, with various degrees of eyewitness reliability. Many, involving unusual cloud movement, unusual movement of the sun with strange disks seen before and after an apparition. The messages are also interesting as they often involve warnings of doom, war and destruction. The same messages often given to individuals who claim to have been in contact with aliens.
One of the modern cases reminiscent of Fatima occurred in north eastern Brazil. April of 1994, a luminous figure appears to Jose Ernani dos Santos, who was at the time praying. The figure announces that she would appear again in the first days of September and October.

Word spread quickly and an estimated three thousand arrived on September 1st to witness the apparition and a unnatural darkening of the sun. One witness, who was also a UFO investigator described seeing a cloud in the sky that was emitting multicolored light in all direction, and how the top of the trees were illuminated by the lights.

Another sign was promised for the following month. This time, a crowd of over five thousand believers and a handful of scientists, members of the Brazilian UFO Research Center, came together on October 1st. At around two in the afternoon while Jose Ernani was praying, two large clouds moved rapidly towards the sun, in effect darkening the sun. One of the scientist, Reginaldo de Athayde mentioned that there seem to be a large amount of static electricity in the air.

As people were crying, praying and falling to their knees, a silver disk appeared briefly before the cloud.  By this time Jose Ernani was is a trance, apparently receiving a message from the “holy virgin”.  The disk disappeared briefly only to reappeared  next to the sun. It was described at about the size of the full moon. It disappeared once again and all was silent, until someone shouted “look at the beads of the Virgin’s rosary”  It the sky was four metallic looking discs.  Three were line up in a row, and a fourth was off to the side slightly obscured by a cloud.

Tears of the Virgin somewhat called the disks; others found in hard to differentiate these disks from standard UFOs. This dichotomous view goes way beyond Fatima and Brazil. Arguing about what constitutes a religious event and what constitutes a paranormal/UFO event is missing the point in my opinion. What may be of more importance is that regardless of the event, we are dealing with the same source. Whatever this source may be, it appears to have a very unique way of communicating.  A code that we have yet to decipher.

THIS EPILOGUE IS WRITTEN BY DR. BARRY E. TAFF

An additional side note here is that two of the three children who frequently encountered the apparition died not long after the events ceased.  The cause of death was assumed to be consumption,the result of the Spanish Flu that was sweeping Europe at the time.  However, decades later, their bodies were exhumed and a proper medical autopsy determined the actual cause of their death.  This is where the real high strangeness shows itself.

What killed these two young children was radiation poisoning/sickness.  The only problem here is that other than around Madame Curie in France, who was experimenting with radium, there was NO ionizing radiation on earth at that time that could have killed those children.   Was their frequent close encounters with said aerial apparitions what irradiated them?  You might want to study the Cash-Landrum UFO case from Dayton, Texas in December 1980 for comparison, as both of the adult women were irradiated by the hovering UFO being shepherded by some twenty Chinook helicopters, one of whom later died as a result of radiation sickness due to high neutron & gamma flux exposure and whose medical records mysteriously vanished from the hospital at which she was receiving treatment.
