Strange things have been happening lately. Global warming is about to cause a massive new Ice Age, George Bush is looking more and more like a one-term president and al Qaeda says it now has nuclear capability.
While we have all the money in the world to spend on the military and on security, the United States can’t spend one dime to implement the Kyoto protocols, which would at least give us a chance at stemming the upcoming disasters.
At the same time, UFOs are being sighted at all-time levels, our Mars rovers keep sending back strange images and alien abductions appear to be on the rise as well. It may well be time to break out the tinfoil hats and start stocking up on food and water, as the Apocalypse appears to be nigh. In Canada, the environmental minister is warning that global warming is a bigger long-term threat than terrorism because climate changes will cause the relocation of millions of people and leave North American agriculture in ruins. “Terrorism is unlikely to give us the strong possibility of 500 million refugees,” said the minister, David Anderson. “Climate change is likely to give us that if it goes unchecked.” While we have all the money in the world to spend on the military and on security, the United States can’t spend one dime to implement the Kyoto protocols, which would at least give us a chance at stemming the upcoming disasters. It’s a bizarre time to be alive. While every generation likes to boast that the end is near, in this case the predictions may actually be true. We may just be a year or two away from a near-total economic collapse in America, resulting in massive rioting in our cities. And the reason the UFOs appear to be showing up in record numbers is because aliens apparently like to watch the action, in the same way I used to watch the goings-on in my ant farm. My eyes have been opened to all of these possibilities thanks to the great Art Bell, the radio talk-show host who explores these things on Saturday and Sunday nights. In fact, the other night, I called into his show after a very bizarre event happened in my own life. I’d come home from work on a Monday feeling dog-tired. I got home, took a shower, shaved, gave food and water to my cats and laid down for a nap around 5:30 p.m. I slept for what felt like hours, having very vivid dreams. When I woke up, most of the cats’ food and water had been consumed. When I walked into the bathroom, I had the beginning of a 5 o’clock shadow. I felt totally refreshed from my nap. But when I looked down at my watch, it was only 6:30 p.m. Obviously, there’d been some sort of time manipulation at work. So when I asked Bell about my situation, he told me that I’d been the victim of what is called a “time slip.” It apparently happens pretty frequently and its cause is unknown. Some have said that it is connected with the abduction phenomena, while others see it as only a time-space anomaly. Either way, it was bizarre. Bell’s show has given me vital information about a variety of topics. The other night, his guest was a former South African army general whose troops shot down a UFO in 1992. The most disturbing thing I’ve heard on his show came from an expert on near-death experiences. The expert said that when you’re dying, do not, under any circumstances, walk into the light. It’s a trap. The thought that his statement may be true is very chilling and not easily explained away. Now, do I really believe in alien abductions, UFOs and the forthcoming apocalypse? Not necessarily. What I do know is that there are many things which science cannot adequately explain and which the U.S. government has been covering up for decades. If there are no UFOs, then why haven’t the records from the 1947 Roswell crash ever been released? Why have a succession of presidential candidates promised to open up all the UFO-related files and then reneged? I remember enough from my physics class that any extraterrestrial pilot would have to be traveling at faster than light speed to even come close to bridging the considerable distance between earth and any other life-bearing entity. The nearest star, Alpha Centauri, is about four light years away from us. That’s approximately 24 trillion miles. It would take tens of thousands of years for us to get there if we traveled at the fastest rate possible today. So the possibility of these abductions all being real seems small. But, as I said above, these are bizarre times. I’m not ready to completely discount anything in this realm. There are individuals who’ve claimed to be the victims of alien implants. Doctors have removed objects from them that appear to be comprised of materials previously unknown to us. If there are indeed extraterrestrials roaming around our planet, I wouldn’t be so sure their intentions are good. If they’ve expended all this effort to reach us, I’m relatively sure that they want something more than just to observe us. And, according to some who’ve studied the issue, a very high percentage of humans today are actually a hybrid of human and alien. Maybe the level is as high as 40 percent. Who am I to say none of this is true? While it’s pretty ridiculous on its face to believe in any of this, I’m keeping an open mind. And I’m keeping my tinfoil hat at the ready.
