until he became so wicked that God had to destroy him and the creation that existed along withhim. There is no record of how long that civilization wasHere or of how long the Earth remained ‘without form and void’ after that first destruction and firstflood. Perhaps that older civilization was contemporary with some of our visitors in their UFOs.For years I have waited, as I read book after book on the subject of flying saucers, for the churchto say something to make sense of it all. I am still waiting. Perhaps the subject is too controversialor too much of a hot potato for any to speak out. I am just a Christian layman who reads andstudies the Bible and believes God has the answer for everything. I am not limited by any onereligion or any certain dogmas but rely entirely on what God’s Word says on the subject.The existence of UFOs puts a damper on many heretofore comfortable beliefs of the scientificcommunity and the religious community. It puts an enormous responsibility on the governmentsand the military of the different parts of the world which are expected to see to the security of their people.Government cover-ups are but futile attempts to cover up what they do not know. If the generalpopulation of the Earth were to realize how inadequate our present governments and military arein the face of what these ‘visitors’ know, their ability to control us would be seriously threatened.The purpose of international security is to maintain a workable stability among the nations of theworld and for them in turn, to retain institutional control over their respective populations. For these governments to admit that there are beings from outer space with mentalities andtechnological capabilities obviously far superior to ours, could, once the reality was fully perceivedby the average person, erode the foundations of earth’s power structures.Political and legal systems, religious, economic, and social institutions could all soon becomemeaningless in the minds of the people. This probably accurately reflects the fears of the rulingclasses of the major nations, whose leaders have always advocated excessive governmentsecrecy as necessary to preserve national security.In 1972 a certain scientist said, "We cannot take credit for our record advancement in certainfields along; we have been helped by people of other worlds."There are persistent rumors that the United States has even test flown a few advanced vehicles,based on information allegedly acquired as a result of contact with extraterrestrials and the studyof grounded UFOs.In the November 1994 issue of the magazine, "New Mexico," is the story of the July 1947, crashat Roswell, New Mexico, of a flying disk and recovered alien bodies. In fact, there is a museum inRoswell that opened in 1992 that has this incident and others as their main theme. This Roswellcrash is the subject of several books written by scientists, retired military officers, and laymenwhose names and publications are listed in the bibliography.Around the same time, there was another reported crashed saucer with alien remains retrievedon the plains of San Agustin, which is near the small town of Magdalena in New Mexico. Theplains of San Agustin is now the location of the Very Large Array radio telescope. This secondcrash is only conjecture and has never been verified.
