Hello Lorraine and welcome,
I just want to comment on one small portion of your post. This is the relationship of religion and ufogy. I am catholic. I attend church almost weekly and am currently studying the Gospel of Mark. This is my personal belief, but, if you believe that the Holy Spirit, or a power greater than ourselves, is actually a descendant of another galaxy in our universe. i/e some alien presence, then the stories told begin to make sense of what we are being told to by abductors and the stories being handed down since the beginning of man.
You have to understand, the bible was written to an audience with nowhere the intellect that we currently hold as humans of our generation. So imagine…. Just imagine… just one simple example, the north star… was it a star was it an unidentified flying object? All I am saying is think about it, take the birth of Jesus, does that story, not match to almost 100 % accuracy what we currently know about alien abduction and claims of hybrid children?
I am not out to convince you or anyone else, I am just saying, if you have an open mind, the stories of the bible make a hell of a lot more sense...
“But in those days after that tribulation
the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light,
and the stars will be falling from the sky,
and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
And then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in the clouds’
with great power and glory,
and then he will send out the angels and
gather elect from the four winds,
from the end of the earth to the end of the sky.
Talks about Jesus descending from the clouds.
I personally have an easier time believing Jesus came upon an object from another part of our universe more than I can believe an old grey breaded man floating in a cloud. But if you think about it, if you were writing the bible, how would you describe to mankind before the knowledge of airflight, ufo’s? you would describe it exactly as they did… ‘the Son of Man coming in the clouds’
Thanks for your insight. I have been keeping an open mind. I wrote my first post at the peak of my odd experience. I just moved to a new place and I've been told there's a presence in the house. I have experienced paranormal, so it wasn't really surprising. But what happened to me was beyond what my housemates had told me they experienced. I know now that someone has been following me - keeping an eye on me.
Jeo actually described some of the experiences. It actually makes more sense now. For others, it's the fear of closet - with me, it's the fear of mirrors. For him, it's seeing someone familiar (face mask) - mine is the voices (they use my family members' voices). True that finding this site actually made me realize I wasn't alone and also that I learned to accept it.
I have opened topics related to the universe and other extra-terrestrial stuff to my church friends even with our pastor around, but they looked at me like "okay, this is off topic. let's ignore it and move on." Why is it so hard to accept that there may be other species out of this world, yet we can accept the "second coming"? We believe so much at what we can't see... yet we can't believe what we are already experiencing? If i were to itemized all of what I felt, what i see and what i experienced, it would be a long list and i know a lot of us feel the same.
What made me question the relation of the bible and ufology is what was in the book of Daniel... where he saw a vision of a writing on the wall. I dreamt of something similar - writing in the sky. Also, the prophet Elijah... where he was taken by chariots to the sky.
When i finally accepted that my experiences will not go away, that it may or may not intensify, and that it will continue on until they're done, my fear subsided a little, the experience wasn't as bad anymore. I have become more aware of them. I guess in a way, i went with them freely and in return, they try not to scare me.
