Religions appeared long ago, when people tried to explain the existence of supernatural beings to incomprehensible phenomena. Apparently, the development of the sciences did not destroy the Faith. People are ready to listen to priests, not scientists. Yes, and technical progress has unexpectedly spawned a new object of worship – aliens.
There are many people who believe that our lives are controlled by UFOs and aliens from other worlds. The most famous representatives of such religions are realism and the cult of the heavenly gates. However, some associations in their attempts to worship aliens are balancing on the verge of insanity.
The name of this religion is literally translated as “The Right Way”. The cult was formed in Taiwan in 1993 and has already ceased to exist. The basis of faith was very strange doctrine. They were once described by the founder, a former sociology teacher, Hong Min Chen. A mixture of Buddhist postulates, Christianity and the ideas of space guests was put into the mind of believers. Chen suggested that a nuclear war created our solar system, destroying four time periods before that. At one time, God could save a few surviving people by taking them to a flying saucer. Chen believed that for all the ills of people are responsible themselves, their spoiled souls. In addition, some “Royal Devils” were considered guilty. A group of people not only believed in a set of crazy ideas, but also became famous for predicting the end of the world. It was due in the last week of March 1988. Chen predicted that God would perform on television on that day, and then massive natural disasters and a nuclear war would begin. And in 1996, Chen, along with his fans changed their place of residence, moving to the city of Garland in Texas. Believers believed that here, on “God’s land”, they will be protected from the impending apocalypse. But God seems to have turned out to be shy and did not appear in front of TV cameras. So the world continued to live after the predicted date of his death. After that, even a few of its adepts were disillusioned in the group, and since 2001, nothing was heard about this religion at all.
Order of Fiat Luxury.
In Latin, the name of the order means “Let there be light.” There was an organization in 1973, when the Swiss secretary Erika Bertshinger during the horse walk fell and hit her head. This became the starting point for the development of a new religion. The woman suddenly realized that she was the Virgin Mary and could communicate with Jesus Christ himself. Erica changed her name to Uriella and in 1980 united her admirers into a group. A little later, the headquarters of a new sect appeared in the German Black Forest. Together with her fans, Uriella believed that in the middle of 1988 the world would be destroyed by fascist flying saucers and natural disasters. Members of the order believed that friendly aliens would come to our world, which would save a few chosen ones. Then the lucky ones will populate a new paradise on Earth. But at the appointed time nothing happened, then Uriella informed her believers that God just temporarily postponed the activities. The reason was that people prayed poorly. The group gradually disintegrated, and did not wait until the announcement of the new end of the world by the preacher.
Academy of Sciences “Unaryus”.
This religion was formed in 1954 thanks to the married couple Ernst and Ruth Norman. They said that they are reincarnations of famous historical figures. The Academy of Sciences “Unaryus” was based on strange beliefs. People were taught that to increase “mental valor” one must meditate before the crystal skull named “Max”. It was believed that the age of this artifact is as much as 10 thousand years. The members of “Unaryus” themselves claimed that they are not a religion at all, but a scientific group. They are trained in interdimensional physics, which will make it possible to find answers to all questions about both the universe and the existence of a human being on it. The Junarians believed that soon the Earth would return to a coalition of planets that had disintegrated hundreds of thousands of years ago.Thanks to this event the epoch of general prosperity will begin. “Academicians” planned the implementation of the event in 2001, when several alien ships had to fly to the planet. And when it still did not happen, an explanation was quickly found. The Junarians said that the events of 9 September showed aliens that the earthlings were not yet ready to enter the universal peace family. The reunion was postponed for another time.
“External Spatial Forces”.
In 1993 there was a bloody “Siege in Waco” religious sect “Branch of David”. Those events shocked the world, but no one remembered that eight years before, similar events happened to another group of believers. Then the authorities made a search of the forest warehouse belonging to Orville Gordon. This man in the 1960s founded the sect of “External Spatial Forces”. The man came to the conclusion that a powerful extraterrestrial civilization, looking at the behavior of people on their home planet, can begin Armageddon. These alien forces have been called Outer Spatial Forces. Gordon himself took a new name, Nodrog, reading his own way. From his property, he made a base for landing a UFO. This site he called “Base-Ark of the Time of Armageddon.” The prophet believed that before the end of the world he, along with other believers, aliens will be taken to a safe place. Glory also came to the sect not because of a loud prophecy, but after one of the members put in a former mayor’s car an improvised explosive device. In 1980, this businessman decided to purchase a forest warehouse and create a shopping center in this place. It is said that in the 1990s the prophet died, he was buried in the territory of the “base”. And the group continues to exist, there is even its website.
Family community “One World”.
Some religions manage to combine completely different beginnings. In this case, the foundation of faith is based on the principles of hippies, communism and belief in UFOs. Known also under the name “The Industrial Church of the Comforter of the New World”, religion was born in 1973 in California. Founded by her artist Allen Noonan, who according to him managed to survive a series of encounters with extraterrestrial beings. They then laid the responsibility on the man for the formation of the “Comforter of the New World and the channel of prophecy of the Eternal Gospel.” Noonan decided to call himself Allen Michael and began to form his basic doctrine of “un-communism.” Members of the community believe that peace on the planet will come after universal disarmament, when people will create a single commune, like a hippie. Believers believe that there is a group of extraterrestrials “Elohim of the Galaxy” who created our planet and life on it. These creatures will someday return to create a new type of society here. Energy in it will be free, and injustice will disappear. What is not communism?
“I am an activity”.
It can be said that it was this religion that became the progenitor for everyone else, connected with belief in UFOs. There was “I – activity” back in 1930. Then its founder, Guy Ballard, announced a meeting with the legendary mystic Saint-Germain in Shast, California. This ascended master instructed Ballard to tell everyone about a method that would allow people to unlock their spiritual potential. This will enable them to become enlightened, having turned into the same Ascended Masters, like Saint-Germain himself. After that fateful meeting in 1932, Ballard finally formed his movement. He began to write books, stating that he was telepathically read by his disembodied friend Saint-Germain and other Ascended Masters, including Jesus himself. They say that in the heyday of the movement involved about a million people. In 1939 Ballard died, but his business was continued by his wife Edna. Now she was responsible for the channel for receiving divine messages. And she did this until her death in 1971. After that, the development of the movement was taken up by the Board of Directors, based in Illinois.Today, the believers themselves say that there are about 300 partner groups around the world. However, after the death of the spouses, no new knowledge was received from the Ascended Masters. It is believed that they simply have not yet chosen new guides for their ideas.
The Nazis always extol their race. But some sing it out so much that it is even attributed to extraterrestrial origin. In the 1990s, the neo-Nazi group Temple Society (Templhofgezzellschaft) appeared in Vienna. It merged the idea of racial superiority and interest in UFOs. These purebred Aryans believe that their race was formed due to ancient Sumerians from the planet Aldebaran. Millions of years ago they came to Earth and settled Atlantis. The “Society of the Temple” believed that in the lives of these creatures there was a wide segregation, they themselves were at the very top. Neo-Nazis believe that the Sumerians, who later became Aryans, are already celestial by nature. And this is what gives them the right to rule the world and control other races and peoples, especially Jews. “Templars” believe that reinforcements from Aldebaran are about to arrive. Allegedly the Nazis contacted aliens in 1967 and they promised them the final victory in the Second World War.
It is important for any social group to keep within itself a harmonious balance – this will help to keep the connections and not to disintegrate. In 1954, Leon Festinger, leading innovative sociological research, managed to penetrate a UFO cult called “The Seekers” and tell about it. This sect was based in Chicago. The adepts, through the automatic writing of their founder, Dorothy Martin, believed that they received messages from certain “Guardians”, the inhabitants of the planet Clarion. These creatures were able to notify in advance their earthly admirers that on December 21, 1954, the end of the world will come. People were asked to be ready to be saved on this day. But the appointed date passed, nothing happened. Soon, Martin received another automatic letter. It was reported that the world was saved, thanks to the outstanding faith of the members of the sect. The group was attacked by the media, its members were frightened of forced hospitalization. This led to the collapse of the community. Dorothy Martin herself went to Peru, where she spent several years. And in 1965 she returned to America, setting up in Arizona a group called the Sananda Association. The woman continued to receive messages for her new believers until her death in 1992. And the organization itself still exists.
“The organization of Urantia.”
The group is the caretaker and preacher of the “Urantia Book” ideas. Community members believe that they originated from the unearthly aliens of the “Orvonton Commission”. The aliens, through the sleeping contact medium, were able to dictate the Book to Dr. Sadler in the 1930s. This scientist formed a group of followers to check the work recorded by him and analyze it for errors. Over time, these people created the “Urantia Organization”, which now cooperates with branches in twenty countries. And the “Bible” of non-terrestrial origin is published by a half-million circulation. In fact, this is an alternative history of the universe and our planet, as well as a view of Christianity. In particular, the Urantia book says that in fact, Jesus was called Michael. The universe is represented by seven concentric rings, in the center of which is God’s dwelling. The organization believes that their sacred book successfully competes with the Bible, as with the truth in the last resort. According to the believers, local groups should be established to study this work, and everyone should read it.
“The Space Ring of the Commonwealth”.
A group of believers formed in the 1950s in Chicago. Created by her postman William Ferguson, who had previously been convicted of fraud. This man said that he had come into contact with extraterrestrial beings.During one of the deep relaxation sessions in 1938, the Earthman was suddenly transferred to the Seventh Dimension, where he received enlightenment. A week later, Ferguson was able to get out of his body again and make a landing in the Sixth Dimension, where our world was going on. He also met an alien named Kuga, who brought him to Mars. And in 1947 and 1954, Ferguson contacted the leaders of the Venusians. In the group even formed a doctrine, according to which Kaugi had to be revered as a divine being. The founder himself maintains that with the help of techniques of deep relaxation one can achieve a high level of spatial consciousness and learn how to travel outside the earth’s body. Ferguson died in 1967, but his work was continued by followers from Chicago. The “Ring of the Commonwealth” is still working.
