Thomas R. Horn he 60th anniversary of the Roswell event will be hosted by the city in 2007. In an attempt to end what they are calling “the turf wars” that have developed between the UFO Museum Research Center Board of Directors and other local organizers, the City of Roswell will coordinate the UFO Festival in 2007. The Museum had taken over coordinating the annual festival three years ago, during which time the numbers of visitors have steadily declined. A featured guest of next year’s event is sure to be Jesse Marcel Jr., whose new book Roswell: It Really Happened will have been published . Col. Marcel claims the famous event was otherworldly, including the recovery of an extraterrestrial craft. Marcel’s father, Maj. Jesse Marcel Sr., was the lead military investigator into the crash of 1947. Some think whatever really happened there will never be known. The US government says it was a simple case of misidentification. But as most people know, this was not the military’s first position. On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Daily Record carried the RAAF (Roswell Army Air Field) release as its headline, front-page story: “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch in Roswell Region. The intelligence office of the 509 th Bombardment group at Roswell Army Field announced at noon today that the field has come into possession of a flying saucer.” By evening, newspapers including the Chicago Daily News, the Los Angeles Herald Express, the Spokane Chronicle, the Sacramento Bee, and others were reporting the news. Then something happened, and by the following day the RAAF had issued a retraction: “An examination by the army revealed last night that mysterious objects found on a lonely New Mexico ranch was a harmless high-altitude weather balloon— not a grounded flying disk.” The contrast of statements by highly trained personnel set in motion the greatest cover-up in American history, says Col. Jesse Marcel, who is admittedly the only civilian alive to have handled the UFO “debris” from the Roswell crash site. I sat down recently with Col. Marcel, and he shared information with me, on and off the record. I heard things I had never heard before from ufology’s legendary friend. Marcel is almost seventy-years-old now and is a soft spoken, gentle man who comes across as ultimately believable. When I asked Jess, as he prefers to be called, if his father—the Intelligence Officer at Roswell Army Air Field at the time of the Roswell event—could have been mistaken about what was recovered during the field investigation, he answered without hesitation, “No way,” and then proceeded to tell me why.

T

When later I pressed about Mogul balloons and Operation Paperclip as alternative theories, he shared at length the number of times he had joined honest investigators in a side-by-side comparison of their “evidence” with his drawings and material examples; each time there was not a single correspondent to what his father had brought home from the ranch that night. Getting to the big questions, I offered, “But of course whatever happened at Roswell, surely could be explained as top-secret terrestrial technology, right?” As cool as silky water, he looked at me and replied, “Tom, what I saw was not of this earth. Though it was material, I held it in my hands, and the pieces were as light as a feather.” I gave Jess greetings from Stanton Friedman, who together with Bill Moore had brought the Roswell cover-up to international light many years ago, and then I said, “So you, like Stan Friedman, believe the Roswell debris were most likely a physical technology?” Jess smiled and told me how Friedman was such a close family friend. I am not sure he ever did get around to answering my question about technology. However, Col. Marcel, like his father before him, is a career military man (he had just returned from Iraq where as an ear, nose, and throat specialist he was busy patching up

soldiers). Over the years he has participated in field investigations of crashed known craft and is very familiar with many hardware components. To this day he has never seen anything resembling the Roswell artifacts. Marcel then proceeded to tell me an intriguing story about an incident that had happened some years ago, when he was scheduled to be in Washington DC. To this day he does not know how the participant knew where he would be at that particular time. When he arrived at his motel, there was a message waiting for him on the phone in his room. It was from a man we will call Mr. “X.” He wanted to meet with Marcel the following day at 1:00 PM in a certain room at the Capital building. Marcel felt uneasy but agreed to go to the meeting. On arrival, he was ushered into the office of Mr. “X,” who got right down to business. “X” wanted to talk to Marcel about Roswell, and he asked if Jess would be more comfortable “in a secure room.” When Marcel explained that he would not be saying anything he had not said before, “X” pressed the idea of the alternate meeting area, explaining, “Well, maybe I want to tell you something you do not already know.” Leaving the office, they proceeded to the secure room where no listening devices existed, in an area Jess described as “the dungeons of the Capital building.” They sat at a table where Marcel noticed a book about alien abductions, UFO technology, and Roswell. “X” tapped on the book with his finger and said outright, “This is not fiction.” The mysterious government insider (later identified as Dick D’Amato, an aide to Sen. Robert Byrd) continued talking for a while and then asked Marcel if he knew where the material recovered from the Roswell ranch was being kept. Jess found the question curious and said, “No. Don’t you?” “X”’s answer was as enigmatic as the question, so Marcel responded with an inquiry of his own: “If extraterrestrial activity is real, and you guys know it, when is the government planning Official Disclosure of what really happened at Roswell?” “If it was up to me,” “X” said, “we’d be doing it now.” Following a story like that, I just had to ask Col. Marcel if he personally knew of other members of the government and military who also are anticipating a future moment when the representatives of the world’s religions and leaders of nations will stand in the well of the United Nations and say, “We have an announcement to make. We are in contact with extraterrestrial intelligence.” Marcel grew silent for a moment, then looked at me and whispered, “Yes.” Suddenly the phone rang, and Col. Marcel had to leave the building. This issue of OFFICIAL DISCLOSURE (formerly ANOMALOS MAGAZINE) includes a look at Christian Theology and ET through the eyes of Dr. Michael Heiser. Derek Gilbert amuses with his idea of how ET might be involved in the Apocalypse by contrasting the Left Behind books with a prophecy from schlock filmmaker Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space. David Flynn offers another genius discovery by decrypting a never-before-seen prophecy about America in the Bible, while other articles in this issue of OFFICIAL DISCLOSURE will challenge your perception of reality on “ghostbusters,” Masonic doctrines, the Tower of Babel, and other special features.

Through the power of Christ’s blood. as is evidenced in the below passage from The Gospel of John. our real joy comes from the fact that our names are recorded in heaven and that what was lost in Eden will one day be restored.32— which specifically states that there were seventy angels involved: “And God said to the seventy angels who stood foremost before him.

It is surprising to some people that God uses fallen angels to work His will at times.

I suspect that God is using fallen angels to further His ultimate purpose in the case of Deuteronomy 32.

Philip Melanchthon argued against the plurality of worlds “because their inhabitants might be left without a knowledge of Christ or that his death and resurrection might have been required more than once.”9 (It is important to note: Melanchthon’s reasoning that the presence of an intelligent ET is impossible due to the doctrines of the incarnation. and the most eminent among DVD Just $19. eighteenth.”12 During the seventeenth.

The arguments behind this objection to an ET reality will be fully examined in a future article.8 This argument was quite problematic though. and the Modern Era In view of the influential thinkers within Catholicism who had weighed in on the extraterrestrial question. Bruno took the idea that God’s omnipotence allowed the possibility of other worlds to two more extreme positions: (1) those worlds were likely inhabited by intelligent beings.95 Available at www. several prominent Protestant preachers became devoted to the idea that there could be intelligent extraterrestrial life. Protestantism’s emphasis on the authority of Scripture typically prompted its spokesmen to take a negative stance. A number of prominent scientists embraced this possibility: Sir William Rowan Hamilton (1805-1856). his works were anathematized. Protestant Reformers were obliged to respond. Bruno was arrested in 1592. As such. the rise in astronomical science and improved technology for observing the heavens led (perhaps inevitably) to a spike in enthusiasm for the idea that there are a plethora of other worlds that are inhabited by intelligent beings.

To “live by the sword and die by it” is an option to defend oneself by lethal means. one fails to fulfill the higher ministry as a witness. most important missing elements of eschatology (study of end-time events) is the Genesis 6 scenario revealed and the realization of how the Genesis 6 scenario will be replayed in the end of times. when events have already progressed beyond the possibility of human interference.

In this wrong thinking one loses focus on a higher calling and becomes captive by the temporal disruptions.10). just how big this connection really is. especially when involved in a ministryrelated topic.

What has come to a surprise to me is the fact that my bigger ministry has been to the many Christian individuals who have recently come to understand the events in Genesis 6 and their replay as “aliens in UFOs. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (King James Version. Most readers are probably already familiar with these events. Many times these events are very negative.” The biggest problem most individuals I have encountered have had is how to relate to their local fellowships when trying to share some of this information.

One settles for second best by acting in a physical manner as opposed to maintaining a spiritual response. But what should we do with the message?

In this reasoning it is important to know that unconditional prophecies are usually not known or understood until they have already happened or. biblical-based counseling for victims of “alien abduction.

Human nature is such that we would tend to interfere with unconditional prophecies if we knew all the details before they actually happened. and if they were negative we would try to prevent them. Regardless of how well they present themselves and the information. Most of us have encountered this type of rejection. To lead into captivity is the attempt to seize the moment by one’s own understanding. Most who have studied and made the UFO/alien connection to Genesis 6 realize. but abductee counseling only represents a small part of my personal ministry. and they loved not . in this time as prophets or witnesses for the truth. but they are a necessary part of God’s plan.

Events will create this need naturally without our plans or schemes. and then. but discipleship and obedience are necessary for this gift and ministry to be performed with accuracy.

This region of the world is well-known for its unusually dynamic plate movements. since the Persian Gulf was divided into two water bodies with the passage between the two smaller “seas” occurring on the same latitude as and just a few kilometers north of Bahrain. It is easy to understand Plato’s statement to the effect that the mud of the sunken Atlantis hampered those ships trying to get to the Indian Ocean or the Arabian Sea through the Persian Gulf because the map shows the Fertile Plain of Atlantis was a shallow sink. The net effect of these was the sinking of the capitol city of Atlantis and the plains surrounding them. The depression of the Gulf basin is evidence of a subsidence of. which. greater in extent than Libya and Asia. Every clue fits nicely and exactly. This statement also implied that a sea lay beyond the muddy waters of the sunken Atlantean area. The Zagros mountains extend along the northern shore. These sedimentary strata lie within the bounds of the Mesopotamian down-warp. The Arabian shield is apparently sliding underneath the Iranian plate in the region of the Zagros mountains overlooking the Persian Gulf. it is not hard to understand. I have included the following table to equate the selected ages to the Setterfield Time Line discussed in the Time Scroll. in particular. “In the Arabian Platform we find that to the north and east the bed-rock is buried under thick layers of horizontal or only slightly disturbed Paleozoic rocks. and that it would have blocked the path to the seas beyond.

An interesting fact can be gleaned from Plato’s account of the sunken Atlantis. these are mainly sediments from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and from the earlier part of the Cenozoic Era. No area in the region of the Atlantic presented that sort of a shipping hazard as late as 600 BC. the subsidence. as I have said. while the eastern sea would have met the Gulf of Oman and entered into the Arabian Sea I am not certain that the smaller one close to the Mesopotamian end of the Gulf was present during the Atlantean age. at the very least. once existed.OFFICIAL DISCLOSURE To assist in the understanding of events in relation to our revised chronology for the geological processes that formed our planet. and the uplifts that attend tectonic plate movements and the sedimentation processes that follow large scale flooding have all helped to create the uniqueness of this region. which is “situated in a pronounced depression and is connected with the Gulf of Oman through the Straits of Hormuz. a few hundred meters. “attempt to cross” indicating that the condition of impassable mud still existed circa 600 BC. and the thickness of rocks in the Zagros is over 12 kilometers. while the Oman coastline on its Arabian Sea side reflects a rise by an equivalent amount. here the bed-rock has sunk to a depth of about 4 kilometers (2. which occurs in the Persian Gulf region.

The pits and trenches are sand and rubble filled.OFFICIAL DISCLOSURE ASM-3 Elevated View of Atlantis from Cyprus Orichalcum The Greek word for “orichalcum” was “oreichalkos.” brass does not fit the description. nor is it reddish. The findings of a U.

It would appear that “or-ei-chalkos” was the name of an alloy of copper and some other metal or metals. and marl (loose clay. and red. Modern translations assume the morphology of “oreichalkos” to have been “oros” for “mountain” and “chalkos” for “copper. so if there were a small amount of gold in the alloy. as does silver. tin. When all the clues are put together. and from underneath the zones. but in others they put together different stones. however. or silt containing calcium carbonate). the presence of which would have dominated the alloy due to the difference in the diameters of the gold and copper atoms.” and if some of you more industrious young metallurgists out there ever brew up some of it.OFFICIAL DISCLOSURE The presence of lead in these mines was the single clue that finally identified the mysterious “orichalcum” alloy. Three common colors of the sandstones in the region of Bahrain are: white. and this form of bronze was found to easily workable and very resistant to corrosion. they at the same time hollowed out docks double within. it would allow a certain amount of copper oxidation on the surface of the alloy while still retaining a degree of the lustrous reflection from the non-oxidized gold component in the alloy. another black. There is one oxide of lead that is known as “red lead” (Pb3O4) because of its red color. and al Muharraq contain “arched layers of rock consisting of limestone. Abu Ali. The white sandstone is formed by sand grains of more than 95% quartz and are known as “quartzarenites. and to be a natural source of delight. and lead. we find that orichalcum was an alloy composed of three elements that the Atlanteans mined in their quarries: copper. please send me a sample. If “gold” was not the other metal. and a third red. as is cuprous oxide. sand. varying the color to please the eye.The stone which was used in the work they quarried from underneath the centre island. Some of their buildings were simple. One kind was white. so why would Plato have referred to it by an extended name unless it were something more than just copper.”135 “Al Muharraq” is an Arabic word derived from the verb meaning “to be thin or layered like a cake. The oxide of lead would have given the reddish tint to the already reddish bronze color formed by the copper-tin alloy and the resulting mixture would have been the best metal they could have used for durability. “ means copper all by itself. bronze was made as an alloy of copper and tin.” However. and all three minerals were listed in the adornments of Atlantean structures. what was? The clue comes in realizing that the “Bronze Age” began right in the time period when Atlantis existed or circa 3800 BC. malleability. the red color would have come from the native copper ore. and beauty. both of which were in plentiful supply in the Saudi mines. The Quarry Stones “. there were some forms of early bronze that were found to contain lead.” This name was given to this area because of the multicolored stone strata. sandstone. when exposed to salt-water and air over a period of time a greenish film of copper carbonate (patina) forms on the surface. which dominate the islands in this area.. The color of native copper is reddish. when one analyzes this Greek word in the following manner. furthermore. when copper oxidizes it tends to go darker and darker as time passes. having roofs formed out of the native rock.” If the grains of quartzarenite are cemented together with either 53 . I found an interesting article on the history of bronze that settles the question of orichalcum’s identity once and for all. and as they quarried.. I think we should re-name “orichalcum” to “Atlantean Bronze. on the outer as well as the inner side.”136 The color of sandstone depends upon its detrital grains and bonding material. Even if the alloy had not oxidized. Bahrain.

and petroleum occurs today in commercial quantities at depths varying from less than 100 feet (30 meters) to more than 25..... Obviously. principally those deposited under marine conditions but also including continental sediments. The Encyclopedia Britannica described this process in the following manner: Petroleum is associated with sedimentary rocks.OFFICIAL DISCLOSURE hematite or iron oxide. hence.000 meters).. Atlantean Energy Consumption? There is such an abundance of oil in the Persian Gulf area. It is commonly believed that oil is produced by a metamorphic process in which organic material is converted to petroleum. formed either from the green coloring matter of plants (chlorophyll) or from the red coloring matter of blood (hemin). If there had been large amounts of flora (chlorophyll) and fauna (blood: hemin) in the region before the Flood. greenish-black color. large amounts of oil producing organic material would have been present in a “marine environment” next to the Tigris River “delta... then. particularly in the vicinity of river deltas... clay-sized sediment” would have been present in the area in great abundance.000 feet (15. the “finegrained. I began researching the oil formation conditions in the region and found surprising results. they take on the color of red.The preservation of organic materials after the death of their contributors is best obtained by rapid burial within fine-grained. Furthermore. Furthermore.. and if large amounts of other flora and fauna had been washed into the sunken area by the Flood. high potassium content are pink in color.The total thickness of sediments deposited in individual areas may vary from only a few feet to well over 50. 137 Geological studies of the region state that a little heat and pressure helped to form the oil basins in that area. although the Flood would have receded to a very shallow depth of some 200 to 300 meters in the area. all these colors match those used in the Atlantean constructions. Those sandstones containing more than 25% feldspar and... The following information about the conditions that are known to create oil (at least the conditions as most petroleum geologists believe in 1989) shed a new light on the reason for the concentration of such shallow oil fields in the region..000 feet (7. The Berri Oilfield next to Abu Ali contains such an abundance of oil and gas wells. one could not help but wonder if there were a connection between the deposits of oil and the destruction of the portion of Atlantis that later was known as Dilmun.. 54 . What a “consuming” thought! Watch for Part 3 in the next Issue.Many petroleum-like hydrocarbons have been found in recent marine sediments as well as soils in many places throughout the world.Most types of petroleum contain complex hydrocarbon compounds termed porphyries. the ambient heat was higher there.. evidence shows the Persian Gulf region produced oil more rapidly than any other place on Earth because the crust of the Earth was the thinnest at that point.” if not other deltas in the region arising from Saudi Arabia. therefore.500 meters). we have to wonder if we have been burning the metamorphosed remains of ancient Atlantis and its life forms in our automobiles and factories of today. clay-sized sediments along sea margins. these occurrences form a link between present living organisms and the petroleum found in sediments of older geological ages. and when they have been subjected to tectonic activity may become extremely hard and attain a dark. Sandstones having more than 25% rock fragments are known as litharenites.
