For UFO Believers, Roswell is The Second Coming
Seeing the ongoing effluvia going on at Kevin Randles’ blog about Roswell, again, makes me think that the likes of David Rudiak and a few others see Roswell as a spiritual substitute for the alleged Second Coming of Christ.
By that I mean hard-core Roswell believers, realizing that Jesus isn’t coming back to help this planet’s despondent population, have substituted the non-Coming with the yen that Roswell offers the possibility that beings from another planet or galaxy, trying to save Earth from its folly, crashed near Roswell in 1947, and more must be on their way.
I know several Roswellian devotees who are convinced that little beings from elsewhere in the Universe have been visiting the Earth, with a mission to save us from Atomic holocausts or some other human-caused destruction.
For them, God is dead and Jesus with Him, and all we can now expect are creatures from the galactic-abroad who will save us from ourselves.
This subliminal belief system is palpable to those who are able to discern the religious-like yearnings of Mr. Rudiak and his ilk. They are desperate to believe.
Take a gander at Kevin’s blog and you’ll see the desperate need to have Roswell be the Coming of the Lord and his minions.
Even the skeptics always on board at Kevin’s blog, when he raises the issue of Roswell, which he is often compelled to do (do we know why?), are playing devil’s advocate with the Second Coming trope, even if they don’t see their complicity in the erroneous theology.
But like the Jesus malarkey – He’s not coming back – the Roswell incident did not indicate the vanguard of a space civilization come to Earth as salvational emissaries.
Roswell is an irrational meme, that only a few pathetic UFO enthusiasts still adhere to, abetted by Mr. Randle’s confessional need to do penance for his errant, early Roswell investigations and writings.
I was trepidatious to bring it up here, but someone had to say something, the topic so fraught with pathology.
