The Theology of Ufology

Lance Moody’s recent comment about David Rudiak’s Roswell/UFO belief system…

“[David can be and always [is] in the service of his Lord, Saucer Jesus”

… goes to what happens to people who become enmeshed in the UFO (Roswell) topic; they become religious-like in their adherence to the phenomenon.

For instance, in my several year association with Anthony Bragalia, I’ve seen him become fanatically “catholic” about UFOs, with Roswell becoming the core of his belief system, even as he eschews some of the other UFO cults (Trent/McMinnville, Socorro, et cetera).

David Rudiak, whom Lance references, is evangelical about UFOs and Roswell is his “Jesus.”

Kevin Randle is like a Seven Day Adventist: sort of believing after once fervently believing in UFOs as the prime example of ET visitation.

The ultimate atheist is Zoam Chomsky, followed less fervently by Gilles Fernandez and Lance Moody himself.

The agnostics – CDA and me – accept UFOs as real but have no idea what the essence of the phenomenon (or phenomena) is (are).

One can find other UFO aficionados who might have a theological or non-theological belief system intact – many being visitors here – but I’ll leave the comment section for them to add their confessionals.



  • I believe my self to be that of St. Thomas...show me the holes in thy palms.

    Where is the "stigmata" of ufology?

    The chalice of the last supper on the night of Roswell?

    Where is ufology's Judas, and who pocketed the 30 pieces of silver?

    Could Roswell be ufology's resurrection? A saucer crashed and on the third day did rise and ascend to Wright-Patterson...

    Of course Rich, I jest, being the lapsed Catholic that I am.

  • We lapsed Catholics have got to stick together Tim, just to save ourselves from the corrupting influence of Protestant ufologists.

  • RR-

    ...what you haven't included in your analysis of 'The Church of Roswell' is the fact that one Tom Carey has stated that HE is the catalyst for this whole failed goofy 'Dream Team Revival Tour'....

    ...sadly, two decent chaps who should have known better were Randle and Schmitt...

    ...SO, we are left with the two unfortunate UFOnut charicatures Rudiak and Bragalia to represent Carey's 50-50 percent approach to research...

  • I don't believe in belief systems. One becomes dogmatic.
