The Life Cycle of UFOs: Born, Live, Die

Hamilton, Lee, Rogers, Ash et al. have provided theories and demographics of life-cycles, for humans, animals, plants, even computer software.

And UFOs have (or had perhaps) a life-cycle also.

Discounting early UFO accounts as attempts to bring forth UFO life, as God (or nature) tried so often in the evolutionary process, beginning again and again, with failures aplenty (dinosaurs, Neanderthals, et cetera), we move to the modern era of UFOs, when UFOs came into being as “things” with a life entirely unique: 1944-1945

(The airships of the 1890s are not the UFOs that ufologists have been consumed with, but were human experiments, by aviation adepts.)

When flying saucers appeared for the first time, in embryonic form, as “foo fighters” in the World War II arena(s), that was the birth of UFOs.

By 1947 flying saucers had matured to a stage of “life” not unlike that of a pre-pubescent child, growing to a teen maturity in the 1960s, and then into full-blown adulthood until the 1990s.

From the 90s up to today [2008], UFOs became senile and old, actually dying in most instances, and appearing as “spirits” nowadays, phantasms or ghosts as it were.

And a rebirth of these things? Not likely, in their previous form anyway.

UFOs are dead and dying.

If a “resurrection” or new, evolutionary birth is afoot, flying saucers and/or UFOs will appear as a totally different phenomenon, in different form and appearance – even different behavior so that “ufologists” will not recognize them as UFOs.

Just as Jesus of Nazareth re-appeared, after His “death,” in an untouchable – noli me tangere – unrecognizable form, so too will UFOs re-appear, perhaps, or may have already done so, as amorphous lights and blobs of energy.

But as it is, flying saucers/UFOs were born, lived, and died, and the theology of UFOs is over, or needs a new intellectual process…..
