'Cover-up' on UFOs

2011-10-17 09:15

Cape Town - The UFO phenomenon is real and becoming harder to cover up, an author has said.

"There are just too many quality sightings recorded by witnesses that need to be taken into account - people like presidents, people of high education that have seen things," Wayne Herschel, author of The Hidden Records and the Cosmic Tree told News24.

He said that human ancestry is tied to extraterrestrial beings from a distant star system and UFOs have been seen and depicted since ancient times.

"Every single human being is a descendant of those that colonised this world and my book shows you the star maps.

"This matches all the ancient records of the flying hats and the modern even are being more frequently seen because everybody's carrying around a camera," he said.

Irrefutable evidence

Mainstream researchers generally accept that unexplained phenomena are seen in the sky, but do not accept that these are linked to travellers from outer space.

Herschel insisted that it would only be a matter of time before there was irrefutable evidence for alien beings visiting Earth.

"We're getting a lot of good snippets from time to time, but there hasn't been anything really breaking that has filmed that we can say is 100% yet. I think it's probably a matter of time."

Astronomers told News24 that many observers who see strange objects in the sky may mistake clouds, unusually bright planets and even aircraft for UFOs.

"Big culprits here are Venus and Jupiter in particular, since they can be quite bright at times. Venus sometimes appears very bright in west shortly after sunset. At other times it's very bright in the east a few hours or so before sunrise.

"Also when a bright planet is low in the atmosphere is twinkles more than usual, and can appear to change colour rapidly. Sometime people describe it as 'being on fire'," said former SAAO astronomer Dr Enrico Olivier.

Hershel disputed that astronomers had the capacity to examine the entire night sky.

UFO reports

"If you look at astronomers' point of vision: Wherever they looking, they're looking at a tiny fraction of the sky at a time. They can't look at the whole sky, which is what you need to keep your eye on to see anomalies," he said.

He said that astronomers and other experts that studied the sky could not afford to confirm sightings of UFOs because they would place their professional careers at risk.

"Ask any academic person who has broken that code and supported UFO phenomena in any particular case; you will see the kind of trouble they get into: Their grants fall away. People are not taken seriously among peers; it is still taboo."

He slammed organisations that did studies into unexplained phenomena for conducting a "code of silence" where professionals were convincing witnesses to remain silent on what they saw.

"Big organisations that supposedly research UFOs to release information on UFOs are tied into government organisations that go in and see the person that's made the report.

"They want to put them under hypnosis and I'm pretty sure that there and then, they are covering up and hypnotising the person to forget what they saw."

World elites

The organisation Saufor (South Africa's UFO Resource) is a platform for South Africans to report UFO sightings, but there aren't many reports on its website.

"People don't want to report them anymore. If you look at how many people are seeing things, and one brave person will try and phone up an organisation or even try a police with a police report. But this kind of thing isn't reported much," said Herschel.

"It's going to keep going until the day comes when they actually park atop Table Mountain and people are filming and watching it. That will be the day," he added.

He said that extraterrestrials were concerned with suffering on Earth, but were prevented from making direct contact with humanity by world elites.

"The most important thing that the elite of the world are trying to cover up is an official visitation by them. They do not want them to show themselves because it will bring in peace and order and stability and no profiteering."

Herschel maintained that prophecies reveal a date when extraterrestrials will make their presence known.

"2012 makes the most sense with prophecy. The Mayan calendar ends on that date; Nostradamus prophecies all speak about a time close to World War III. The Revelation prophecies speaks of a situation that seems to match pretty much with the chaos that we're in now."

Herschel will be speaking at the UFO, Science And Consciousness Conference Johannesburg from November 25 - 27.

    I've written a book about how there's a massive worldwide coverup to prevent the truth about fairies and hob goblins getting out. Like Herschel's book it also contains loads of speculation, wild theories and no evidence. I've also created a chapter called "Irrefutable Evidence" where I explain that some day there will be irrefutable evidence. Would you guys be able to advertise it on my behalf as well? If you don't it proves that you're part of the world order anti truth agenda.

      gerhard.nel - 2011-10-17 10:05

      Brilliant comment!

      Coco - 2011-10-17 10:24

      Why is this hocus pocus nonsense placed in the Science section?! Who's responsible for it. The $hi7 they publish here is unbelievable.

      philip.spies - 2011-10-17 11:06

      Best comment ever!!!

      I also have that book... it's called the Bible.

      Anthony - 2011-10-17 12:47

      they dont want to visit because of profiteering, hey wtf.

      mbossenger - 2011-10-17 12:52

      25 thumbs down to Sam's comment? Just shows the pathetic levels of scientific education in this country.

      Wow, you really are so funny

      Justin - 2011-10-17 15:43

      @ Danie Please man, don't knock what you don't understand. The Bible has done you no harm, has it? For starters, it's given you a great name.

    This fruit loop - again? Does News24 not have anything else to report on? If there is hard evidence - bring it on.

  • Stephen - 2011-10-17 09:53

    If, and when, these guys arrive, we'll all know at the same time. It will be impossible to cover up, the more were finding out about the Universe the less likely these little green men seem to be. what a book of nothing, you may as well write a book about the lockness Monster.

  • Michael - 2011-10-17 10:02

    Wayne Herschel; you are an idiot.

      Stephen - 2011-10-17 12:53

      He's a genius; the people buying his books are idiots.

    what an idiot

  • Victor - 2011-10-17 10:45

    LOL, comments here show we all think this is crap, but I see someone is giving everyone's comments thumbs down. Probably to ashamed to post his/hers support of this nonsense.

      gerhard.nel - 2011-10-17 11:42

      Agreed.

      Alan - 2011-10-17 13:22

      It's probably Wayne Herschel that giving everyone a thumbs down

  • quinton.schorr - 2011-10-17 10:50

    The only book to read on this that will show the objective truth about this phenomenon is Alien Intrusion by Gary Bates. It has info on the following: Is there really something going on? What do NASA and SETI believe? Is interstellar travel possible? Is there life on other planets? ... and much more. Get it on amazon.com or http://www.alienintrusion.com/main.html Did aliens create life on Earth? UFOs throughout history Famous sightings and contactees What does the government really know? Did a UFO crash at Roswell?

      Victor - 2011-10-17 11:10

      From http://creationwiki.org/Gary_Bates: "Gary Bates is a former a committed evolutionist, who is now an active creation evangelist who has been involved with the creation/evolution debate since 1990. He became the head of ministry for Creation Ministries International in Australia, then in late 2009 moved to the United States and became the CEO of CMI in the United States. In November 2008 Bates became the first CEO of CMI Worldwide, the federation of CMI Ministries around the world.[1] He is also a regular contributor to Creation Magazine, and is on the magazine's editorial staff." So would he not write from a christian point of view, i.e. not objective? How could he possibly know if life exists on other planets or if interstellar travel is possible? Surely those are puzzles that some of the top scientists are still working on.

      Victor - 2011-10-17 11:11

      To add to that, would Carl Sagan's Cosmos and Demon-haunted world not rather be the objective source of info?

      quinton.schorr - 2011-10-17 17:44

      @Victor. Yes that's him. That is exactly why what he writes so objectively and truthfully. As a Christian he submits to the teaching of the Bible that teaches that we must not lie. Something the evolutionist/anti Christian scientists don't do - well I guess they don't have to, as they believe that we just happened by chance with no purpose or hope. Have you also noticed that many scientists are leaning toward the alien/UFO theory to try explain where/how life started on earth (panspermia). Yet many trashing the UFO phenomenon claim to be 'intelectuals/thinkers'. A bit ironic perhaps? From your comment I see you haven't read Gary's book. You will be pleasantly surprised at how objective and scientific he is, with many years research etc. and comes to a very clear and reasonable and a 'common sense' conclusion. I challenge you to get it and read it!

      quinton.schorr - 2011-10-17 17:52

      And no, Carl Sagan is not an objective source. He was a rabidly dogmatic believer in the long age, macro evolutionism religion. Hardly someone you should 'put your faith in'. Being a scientist does not equate to being untouchable as so many believe especially when it relates to evolution.

      Victor - 2011-10-18 09:01

      @quinton If I want to read a book about science I'll read a book written by a scientist, not someone punting a bronze-age myth. Your statements on Sagan made me laugh! So are you implying you believe in creationism and a young earth?

      Victor - 2011-10-18 09:03

      And to add to that - panspermia is just ONE of the theories of how life could have originated on Earth. You try to explain it from a religious perspective but that will never work, your religion demands belief, not evidence - or logical thinking for that matter!

  • Jerhone - 2011-10-17 10:56

    what a load of trash, it's one way to sell your book to u.f.o. geeks,with billions of people with cell phone cameras not one decent photo of a u.f.o.just a lot of silver blured hubcaps floating in the air get real you bunch of geeks

  • Andrew - 2011-10-17 12:10

    If we keep publishing this crap on the web, does it become proven scientific fact" after it gets a certain number of hits?

  • renesongs - 2011-10-17 14:16

    The fossil record and now genome studies point to an uninterrupted chain of evolution from bacteria to humans. Not even a creationists in the face of all the evidence dare suggest that we somehow devolved from higher species. Of course there is also the problem of why would our intelligent ancestors, gods, or neighbours need to engage in elaborate and protracted game of hide and seek with us.

  • qhuggett - 2011-10-17 15:50

    Show us the evidence. Simple, when I see it I will believe it. Tell then its just a bunch of people who's imagination has run wild.

  • Zion - 2011-10-17 17:04

    This guy Herschel, wonder where he got that name from and not Gibbs either. What an envigorating load of poppycock. To use one of his lines: "Only a matter of time before there was irrefutable evidence of alien beings". Dammit man, civilized man has been around for 5000 years and the only aliens he has seen is in what he was last smoking. This Herschel is on the same level as Von Daniken. A fraudster or pretty naive. If we were to eliminate the Roswell fraud on 1947 there are such few cases unexplained that those cases do not imply aliens in any way. If it cannot be proven to be an apple then it is not necessarily a banana.

  • Robin - 2011-10-17 18:53

    Wayne Herschel and Prince Charles (not to mention Al Gore et al) should get on well together - they both believe in idiotic airy-fairy stuff.

  • Sammy - 2011-10-17 21:59

    The people think we are the only intelligent life in the universe are CRAZY AND NARROW MINDED!WAKE UP AND LOOK AT THE SKY THERE ARE MORE STARES AND PLANTS THAN ALL THE GRAIN OF THE SAND ON EARTH.... JUST THINK ABOUT IT,

      Victor - 2011-10-18 09:04

      Sammy - that is not the point! The point is EVIDENCE. I also believe life must exist elsewhere in the universe. But rather read science books about the subject, not fiction like mentioned in this article

  • Blue - 2011-10-17 23:54

    To all you clueless dummies who ridicule the UFO phenomena - The day will come when you'll eat your words.....would you like fries with that?

      Victor - 2011-10-18 09:05

      Evidence, evidence, evidence. And no, "X-files" like anecdotes by bored americans don't count

  • Mark - 2011-10-18 00:22

    All this paranormal stuff is so mundane it's as if the witnesses lack imagination. I mean be it that Geller guy bending spoons or John Edward telling people that their departed ones 'still love' them, or little green men flying around in hubcap/hat/Frisbee shaped craft. All I have to say is, 'So what?'. How can any of these things really help anyone, even if there was hard evidence backing up any of these claims.

  • barb.gallop - 2011-10-18 00:46

    NEWS 24 MAKES MY INTERVIEW READ LIKE GIBBERISH??? THE REPORTER Duncan Alfreds did not place my interview quotes in proper context and placed various quotes in a meaningless worthless jumble... It all reads like gibberish???... Was it deliberate... to mock the subject? I had the church murals and the Vatican records images available of the anomaly they remembered as a "flying hat" and the landing of a UFO found on papyrus in Egypt. Just google CNNireport UFO landing sphinx. The videos on the ireport cover the full story. Nobody has to buy my book either??? The primary findings are FREE online... the hidden records dotcom. link to jiberish news link...

  • Ab - 2011-10-21 17:41

    Ab Asaff At least since the Roswell incident, there has been such a massive amount of rational circumstantial evidence gathered from unquestionable highly credible witnessness from Astonauts, Cosmonauts, Airplane Pilots both civilian and various countries military Pilots, etc. that the weight of it is so great if the subject was a murder trial it would render a conviction. The unbelivers are uninformed and unenlightend or just plain horses with blinders who find it easer to debunk it because they are afraid and don't want to even think about the truth. They belive what government says is the truth. When was the government ever truthful about anything of great importance to the people. From secret treaties to wars to health issues to contanminates to corporate greed and the list goes on. It is past time to wake up kids and pull your dumb heads out of your sand pile.

    Hi THE FACT THAT EVERYONE EXPECTS SOMEONE WITH A DEGREE TO BE THE FIRST TO SHOW OR SAY THEY SAW UFO IS RATHER SHORT SIGHTED. SO,IDIOTS, DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING AT ? I MUST BE ONE OF THOSE IDIOTS, WHO HAVE REPORTED THESE UFO ORBS AND OTHER STUFF ON YOUTUBE, AND IN OR ON MY WEBSITES CALLED UFOSAFRICA AND IN AHBOTHA.BLOGSPOT.COM. PITTY ! BECAUSE THERE ARE MORE REAL SIGHTINGS TAKING PLACE DAILY, THAN GIVEN CREDIT FOR ! THE AIR FORCE JUST TEND TO SHRUG THEIR SHOULDERS AND SAY " WHAT CAN WE DO WITH OUR INFRASTRUCTURE ?" GIVE THE PHOTOS TO THE NEWSPAPERS, AND THEY USE IT FOR TOILET PAPER ! WHO WANTS TO KNOW THAT THE ALIENS ARE HERE ? AFRICA SEEMS VOID OF INTELLECTUAL INTELLIGENT CREATURES, AND STILL TO FAR DOWN ON THE PRIMATE LADDER TO CARE. 98 % OF MY VIEWERS ARE FROM THE USA STATES, RUSSIA AND EUROPE! AFRICA WOULD BE EASY PICKINGS FOR THE ALIENS, IF THEY ARE LOOKING FOR SLAVES !

  • Andrew - 2012-02-12 18:26

    Hi, Duncan, I will tell you this... We, have not seen anything yet ! I have stumbled across more than I can actually tell you or the readers in a hundred page book. We are or have been on the verge of the most astounding discovery of the century. Its been under our noses for such a long time, we just did not see it at all ! The Disclosure has been on for a while, and unknown and unseen by those who were looking for something else. We were looking for UFO, ORBS, ALIENS trying to understand all of the weird phenomena, and conspiracies. These great big UFO, are nothing more than Entities, similar to those creatures you find in the sea, and on a dirty water on a glass pane under a microscope. Camouflaged colorful creatures we have called UFO, Foo Fighters and many other names.There are UFO and Aliens, but these creatures or entities take up most of the space in our minds we regard as the Alien Grail. There are UFO and Aliens, but they do not fit into this category ! I have tried and tried on Youtube, to explain, but to very little avail ! This is the greatest "known discovery" and it has become a Disclosure of new ways of looking at our past history, and where we are going to ! This is the century of new beginnings and understanding ! Kind regards Andrew Botha

  • jacqueline.benjamin.52 - 2012-07-17 15:09

    I cannot understand why people are so unwilling to believe in life on other planets, the possibility of alien craft visiting earth and so forth. The Americans are preparing to land yet another rover on Mars and are planning a trip there by 2030 (the Dutch wants to start a Mars colony by 2020). That will make us the aliens. They want to mine asteroids and moons in our solar system. I do believe that we come from outer space. It is our nature to explore and expand. Like whoever (aka god) started a colony on Earth It baffles me that so many people believe in an invisible god and holy spirit, a not so ancient story yet cannot wrap their brains around the possibility of UFOs and aliens visiting. This makes more sense to me than religion and the nonsense that comes with it.
