New Age Disinfo Alert! Bright star will herald "saviour" Maitreya in the next few days

This week has come encouraging news for anyone with an interest in signs and wonders, or desperate for a chink of light in the prevailing gloom, which probably means most of us: a saviour is at hand.

According to the Share International News Service, in a press release captioned Christmas Miracle, a "large bright star" will be appearing in the sky sometime over the next few days, or weeks, heralding the appearance on "a major US television programme" of the new World Teacher, Maitreya, who will be ushering in a new age of peace, wisdom and understanding. And not before time, I hear you say.

Share International is the organisation founded by Benjamin Creme, the Scottish painter and clairvoyant, and Britain's most redoubtable millenarian, who has been prophesying the coming of Maitreya for the past 26 years.

Comment: Whether a "bright star" appears some time in the near future or not (don't hold your breath) common sense should warn us against entrusting our salvation to strangers - no matter if they present themselves as ascended masters, prophets, honest politicians, benevolent aliens or Jesus himself.

If you are looking for someone to change your life for the better, you should have a look in the mirror for the only potential savior.


UFO Seen in Tlalnepantla, Mexico

There was a UFO orb sighting over Tlalnepantla, Mexico on December 18, 2008, that fits the recent UFO orb sighting descriptions. The footage is very well filmed and is easy to see the UFO above. The entire film is nearly ten minutes with close-ups and wideshots showing the UFO orb in great detail. Above all this is another great piece of footage.


21 UFO sightings in police 'X-files'

They are more used to dealing with calls reporting crime and anti-social behaviour.

But Nottinghamshire Police have also experienced a number of rather other-worldly enquiries from members of the public.

New figures from the force reveal a total of 21 UFO sightings in the county were recorded in 11 calls to the force control room between November 1 in 2003 and October 31 this year.

Possible photo emerges of Suffolk UFO

Earlier this month we reported about a sighting of a luminous grey UFO in the historic town of Bury St Edmunds in the United Kingdom. The UFO was seen spinning and hovering over the St Edmundsbury Cathedral by a townsman who promptly notified the police. It later emerged that the UFO was also seen by a staff member of the Cathedral. Sarah Friswell, the Cathedrals visitor officer, noted that the topic of the mysterious craft had come up in a staff meeting and one of the staff members confessed to also witnessing the rather clear UFO of a very 'Classical' appearance.


Here's that story again: UK Midlands UFOs were 'flying lanterns'

A dramatic display of bright lights in the West Midlands which prompted local fears of a UFO invasion has been revealed as a bit of child's play.

The mystery objects were identified as a cluster of cheap flying lanterns.

They had been released into the night sky last night during a children's carol service at a nearby primary school in Halesowen.

Comment: The problem with the flying lantern scenario is that it completely ignores the accounts of witnesses:
Each object was encircled with lights and had lights in the middle, according to witness Steven Randall who lives in Halesowen with is wife and three children.

He said: "This was incredible and so spectacular. The lights seem to climb into the sky to the north of us, just before 8pm last night.

"A neighbour had shouted for us to come and look. There were so many objects. From a distance they looked like bubbles rising in a fizzy drink.

"Then they came towards us and flew right over the top. Some were so close they were almost touching and were only a hundred feet or so above us.

"The objects were absolutely silent and travelling at probably twice the speed of a normal aircraft.

"They were all circular and had 13 to 15 lights around the rim. Each had lights in the centre which were flashing on and off. They went south at a terrific speed."
We have heard the 'lanterns' story quite a few times in the recent months. For anyone who has invested a little time in researching the subject of UFOs and government cover-ups, such an explanation is an insult to the public's intelligence.


Another UFO sighting in Leeds, UK

On Saturday, November 30 at around 7.30pm I was going outside to put some rubbish in the bin when I gazed up to the north-west, toward Roundhay Park, and noticed three lights in formation heading towards us. They were candlelight in colour and brighter than any star out that night.

As the lights moved towards us on a completely clear night they began to turn towards McDonald's. As they turned, another light appeared fom nowhere and continued along the same path.

This pattern happened about three times until about six or maybe seven lights had appeared then they turned and vanished, apart from the last one which seemed to be going slightly faster than the rest and undercut them on the inside of their turn as if taking a short cut.

UK: "Spectacular" display of up to 70 UFOs over the Midlands

Eyewitnesses told Sky News that up to 70 bright circular objects could be seen near Halesowen.

Stunned residents watched in disbelief, convinced they were viewing an extra-terrestrial spectacle.

Each object was encircled with lights and had lights in the middle, according to witness Steven Randall who lives in Halesowen with is wife and three children.

He said: "This was incredible and so spectacular. The lights seem to climb into the sky to the north of us, just before 8pm last night.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said that independent experts have concluded there are straightforward explanations behind alleged UFO reports, such as aircraft lights or natural phenomena.
That is, in essence, the old tautological argument which declares that UFOs cannot be the product of non-human intelligence, because non-human intelligence is impossible. Therefore, any alternative 'natural' explanation will always apply, regardless of witnesses and evidence. Case closed, right?
