Angels may be aliens from Atlantis, Tom DeLonge insists

Angels-Atlanteans-DeLonge

It “looks like” Jason Colavito, author and editor based in Albany, NY, internationally recognized by scholars, literature theorists and scientists for his pioneering work that explores the connections between science, pseudoscience and speculative fiction, did not like a message recently posted by Tom Delonge on the Instagram.

Angels may be aliens from Atlantis, insists Tom DeLonge

Last week, To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science founder and interim leader Tom DeLonge shared a bizarre Instagram post in which he seemed to endorse a number of controversial ancient astronaut and Theosophy-style beliefs about the imagined connection between space aliens, Atlantis and Lemuria, and Biblical angels. DeLonge discussed midcentury ideas favored by Theosophy-inspired “contactees” and UFO preachers, and it appeared that he favors the idea that Biblical angels and space aliens are the same. Here is what he had to say:

Here’s what he published:

In the early 50’s a man was claiming to have regular visits from “spacemen” that were the same entities that UFO contactees describe meeting, as well as the same ones he said were portrayed in the Bible as “Angels.” He said they had outposts in our Solar System and had connections to Atlantis and Lemuria. He took many photos in the early 50’s (no photoshop, no computers) but many were overexposed (potentially) because of the propulsion field coming from the craft — A man in 2017 wanted to make a 3D animation of these craft and asked to borrow all the photos and negatives from the 50’s to help create the animation. Upon digital enhancement, within a black negative, this figure and a craft appeared. This may be what people describe as the “Tall Whites” or, “The Atanteans” [sic] or… “The Angels” of the Bible. They glow, they can almost look translucent (potentially) if they are surrounded by an electromagnetic force field, but really, they may be walking around on Earth “just like men” as the Bible and Vedic texts describe.

To be fair, there is actually a connection of sorts: As Ignatius Donnelly recognized (mostly by accident), Plato modeled the end of Atlantis in the Critias on Near Eastern flood myths, so the story resonates with intertestamental Jewish myths of pre-Flood activities of the fallen angel Watchers and their giant sons the Nephilim, whom Theosophy identified with Venusians and Martians and whom ancient astronaut theorists identified as visitors from other star systems.

I’d like to say that this was out of character, but it isn’t. These same ideas permeate DeLonge’s books, and they have also shown up in his Twitter feed and his media interviews, particularly his train wreck appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience a few years ago. DeLonge is proud of the fact that much of his knowledge of the paranormal and extraterrestrial derives from 1960s and 1970s paperback bestsellers, and there is no evidence that his knowledge base has grown since claiming to be the anointed mediator between the U.S. government and humanity.

This is not the first time DeLonge has shared dubious material on social media. He infamously shared a screen capture from the 2000 miniseries Taken and claimed it to be secret government images of a flying saucer.

I am, however, interested in the increasingly explicit efforts of the TTSA crew and their cousins in the Ancient Aliens orbit to equate angels and aliens and to follow Ignatius Donnelly in making Atlantis into an Eden. It has long been obvious that the ancient astronaut theory is religion in the guise of pseudoscience. It was even fairly obvious that the religion in question was Theosophy, since all the major ancient astronaut writers cite Helena Blavatsky approvingly.

But is there anything someone can say anymore that will disqualify one from lucrative government research contracts and cable TV contracts? It seems the only thing that can ensure that one is locked out of the government-media revolving door is to conclude that pseudoscientific ideas are bullshit.

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters?

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters? 98

Having appeared on the network, this photo caused a lot of comments – from the fact that it really was a Guardian Angel who guarded the firefighters during work, to those who assured that all this was just an illusion, no more complicated than a cloud in the shape of a lamb.

At the end of December 2020, while extinguishing a fire in the Polish village of Maldyty, an Angel hovered over the firemen, or at least something like an Angel. This photo appeared on the Facebook page of the Maldyta fire station and generated many comments.

“This is something that was formed during the last extinguishing of the fire from the ignition of soot in the chimney in Maldyty. Write in the comments your thoughts about it,” was written under the picture on their FB page.

Poles are known to be very religious and there are plenty of people willing to comment on the picture.

Many indeed believed that the Angel oversaw the work of the firemen and, perhaps, even helped them to extinguish the fire. But there were also enough of those who believed that it was all just a random silhouette between clouds in the sky and pareidolia (illusion). The photo was taken by an unspecified person sitting in the cab of a car parked next to the burning house.

“Christians have always believed in the existence of guardian spirits. Some call them Guardian Angels. The Bible confirms their existence,” Pastor Leszek Kozheniecki told reporters, commenting on this photo.

By the way, Kozhenetskiy is a well-known Polish pastor who believes in the existence of supernatural beings.

Three years ago, he told the press that he had driven out the evil spirit that settled in his house in Turza Wielka. One of the firefighters who worked on the extinguishing of the house that night said:

“If we have this kind of protection watching over us, I am pretty calm about safety during work.”

Blogger MrMBB333 shared an image of a “mysterious creature.” It was discovered 80 kilometers off the coast of Antarctica in a remote region of Antarctica, according to the Sun.

According to the blogger, the pictures are screenshots from the Google Earth service, which were sent to him by his subscriber and conspiracy theorist under the nickname BONKERS.

They estimate the length of the remains at 3.6-6 meters.I don’t know if it was frozen for thousands of years or appeared recently,- the blogger said.

MrMBB333 believes the skeleton belonged to a dinosaur. He came to this conclusion by examining the front and hind limbs of the creature. His subscribers are sure that these are the remains of a seal.

A google search for seal skeleton images shows a pretty good match,- one of them wrote.

Other subscribers call the skeleton “suspicious”. They explain that “seals have no hind legs.” Another wrote that the remains belonged to an alligator or some other reptile.

In the comments, conspiracy theorists also expressed their opinion that “Antarctica is full of unexplained phenomena that may be related to ancient aliens.”

It is also believed that most of the “discoveries” made by users of Google Earth can be explained by the unusual shape of ice or other natural phenomena.

MrMBB333 uploaded his investigation video to YouTube on January 5. Since then, the video has been watched more than 200,000 times.

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history 101

It is said that there is a mountain in Tibet that contains a network of special formations that extend to the nearest lake. Many researchers believe that this is an artificial pipeline system. But, strangely enough, its origin dates back to the era of the Neanderthals.

This mountain rises about 40 km from the city of Dalingha in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. It is called Baigongshan (White Mountain). In the world, it is better known for the wonderful formations that are in its heart and wide surroundings – they are called the Baigong pipes.

This miracle has been the subject of controversial discussions for many years. Some believe they are a natural formation, but there are many who are sure that someone built them in the distant past to drain the lake. They base their arguments on research results, but there is a catch; the mysterious aqueduct should have appeared 150 thousand years ago. Traces of settlements around the mountain are not even older than 30 thousand years. So who could build metal pipes inside an uninhabited mountain?

There are three caves at the foot of Mount Baigongshan, two of them have already collapsed and are inaccessible, but the largest of them has since been the target of many tourists who come to the area.

The cave looks like it was artificially created by someone. Visibility is enhanced by a massive pipe about forty centimeters in diameter that sticks out of the stone.

Another apparently hollow pipe of the same diameter ran into the cave from the top of the mountain. Another one came from the bottom of the cave somewhere below.

At the entrance to the cave, you can see several other pipes with a diameter of 10 to 40 cm. All this gives the impression of the remains of some ancient system or mechanism. About 80 meters from the cave, Lake Toson sparkles with a large number of scattered pipes on the beach.

They stretch from east to west and have a diameter of 2 to 4.5 cm, these archaeological finds are described by the Chinese scientist Liu-Shaolin:

The unmistakable rust color indicates that they are made of metal. And their craftsmanship showcases advanced attachment techniques. Who could have built such a complex pipe system? Only one who knew well what he was doing and why.

The version that such an engineering miracle was created by the Chinese disappears immediately. The inhabitants of the Middle Kingdom could not build something like that 150 thousand years ago. As the authors of many amazing inventions, bureaucracy became one of them. Therefore, it is simply impossible to imagine that such a large-scale and, without exaggeration, a great construction project was reflected in any ancient Chinese source. Any emperor, during whose reign this happened, would make sure that his great deed was not forgotten by descendants.

Baigong tubes are another unsolved mystery in human history. This find once again refutes the facts of the official history. Where is the true and where is the misconception? Maybe there will be people among the readers who will logically explain the origin of the ancient aqueduct.
