It is interesting how so much supposedly conspiratorial beliefs are now recognized, considered, and increasingly accepted, even by the scientific community. What is also interesting is some key things that tie many of them together.

1. UFOs
2. Near-Death Experiences
3. Ghosts/spirits
4. Bigfoots (plural as it is a species)

The first two have much more scientific acclaim than the others, but here are some things that tie them all together:

1. While the nomenclature of some of these may make us cringe still, the reason why they are all gaining legitimate acceptance is that there are too many people who have experienced these things to believe they are simply made up. When you have millions of testimonies from people today along with the same general descriptions given from people throughout history, from every place on earth, it would take more faith to deny these things than to believe them. Many times, people have soiled their reputations to tell their story.

2. In all four of these, there is a relation to EMF (Electromagnetic fields). There are either high EMF readings when people see these things. They all seem to run off this same energy. As well, the places on earth with the highest EMF readings, have the most activity. Even people who search for Sasquatch report this as well as drained batteries and interference with their electronics.

3. All three of these are associated with similar phenomena such as bright lights, and cold (or sometimes hot) temperatures. Often, the emotions are affected even before the encounters. Feelings of excitement, fear, and/or sadness are common and many people report their hairs standing on end (which could be from the EMF).

4. These things don’t seem to obey the laws of nature as we know them. Near-death experiences come when there are no brain waves, UFOs travel faster than is humanly possible (at this point) by unknown propulsion, ghosts/spirits are invisible, and Bigfoots are often accompanied by orbs of light and can disappear when they don’t want to be seen.

Along with all of this, I find it interesting to see the relation between Moses’ red face after seeing God and Paul’s blindness after seeing Christ to these ufo sightings that leave burns and blindness.

      Wouldn’t that be “BigFEET”, lol! (I know, I can hear your answer already….)
      Only thought I might add is the oddity that is addressed to the Church of Pergamos, which I don’t see any reason to take metaphorically rather than literally:
      “I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is”
      ‘Spose there are extra EMF there?
