BVM Apparitions, UFOs and Deceptions
by Regan Lee


Posted: 11:31 September 2, 2008

Marian apparitions are not a strictly and literal religious event, but a Fortean/UFO occurrence; a theory I share with those UFO and paranormal thinkers who think the along the same lines. Appearances of the BVM (Blessed Virgin Mary) are not to be interpreted literally within the confines of religious dogma, but are manifestations of something paranormal, and very possibly extraterrestrial.

Both events -- UFOs and BVM sightings -- have their deceptive side. The UFO phenomena contains a huge amount of contradictory, Trickster, manipulative, and contrasting behaviors. For example, the Contactee Era was primarily benign; usually tall, good looking aliens, kind and helpful, who appeared to the contactees. Their messages were positive, their very appearance was positive: tall, good looking, stunningly handsome and beautiful. They usually came from planets associated with love and grace: Venus, Neptune. These experiences seemed to be replaced with abductions -- kidnappings -- by usually short, gray, characterless beings who did rude things and didn’t seem at all interested in conversing with us as any kind of respect or consideration. The contradictions within the UFO phenomena are numerous.

Both the religious and the non-religious observer of Marian Apparitions know that these appearances by Mary also contain contradictions. Not all apparitions are considered valid; some are considered false by the religious: tricks by a negative force (like the devil, Satan, those who interpret the “Trickster” as a strictly demonic and literal entity) to confuse and deceive. The apparitions at Medjugorje are considered by some religious scholars to be a faux event, for many reasons: the apparitions have been going on for too long, (The visitations at Medjugorje began June 24th, 1981) and the behaviors of the BVM are not what is expected of the Virgin or church doctrine.

Students of UFOlogy know that many UFO events are full of trickster characteristics. One famous example is the experience of farmer Joe Simonton of Eagle River, Wisconsin, who, in April of 1961, saw a 30 foot wide UFO land near his house. Three short, but human-appearing beings, wearing uniforms, asked the farmer for a jug of water and in return they gave him three pancakes. (The number three is important here too; three being a powerful number in folklore and esoterica.) A classic Fortean/UFO event that makes no sense. The UFO literature is full of these seemingly nonsensical encounters. Here we have a visitation from space, with beings giving gifts, but what’s the message, where’s the proof?
