Space aliens walk among us? Indeed, claims retired Temple prof

THE WAY David M. Jacobs sees it, aliens from outer space have been kidnapping humans for aeons and sexually molesting them to create human-alien hybrids that walk among us today undetected and will soon take over Earth.

He knows that sounds crazy.

But he long ago quit caring what people think of him. As director of the International Center for Abduction Research, Jacobs, 71, has made it his life’s mission to investigate claims of extraterrestrial abduction.

“What I’m doing will either be an interesting but nonessential footnote to popular culture or the most important thing that’s ever happened to humankind. I see it as the latter,” said Jacobs, who’s now working on his fifth book, tentatively titled The New People.

While most people might write off UFO believers as deluded, conspiracy-theorist kooks, Jacobs isn’t your typical believer.

He was a tenured professor at Temple University, where he taught American history for 36 years before retiring in 2011. He’s a married father of two who lives in a picturesque, 134-year-old Victorian just over the Philadelphia line, in Wyndmoor. He makes his case with well-reasoned, articulate explanations and applies a scholarly approach to his research, which he has shared in four books – printed by well-known and academic publishers.

Jacobs has interviewed about 150 people who say they’ve been abducted by aliens, the forgotten details of their cosmic kidnappings resurfacing in relaxation sessions the self-taught hypnotist does in his home.

Citing public polls, he estimates that aliens have abducted more than a million Americans.

He readily admits that the evidence of extraterrestrial life and body-snatching is “weak,” muddied by an abundance of blurry photos and confabulation (phony or misinterpreted “memories”).

Yet he insists evidence exists:

* Abductees independently report similar experiences and recall common details, such as the humanlike or insectlike appearance of aliens and their mission to breed.

Many abductees told Jacobs that aliens stared deeply into their eyes, sometimes touching foreheads, in a neurological scan that enabled them to harvest human sperm and eggs. Women frequently claimed that aliens impregnated them, removed the alien-human hybrid fetuses from their wombs and forced the women to nurse the hybrid babies.

* People are physically absent during the time they say they were abducted, Jacobs said. Some families even have reported loved ones missing or seen them vanish, he added.

* Abductees sometimes are taken in groups; strangers who never met on Earth recall each other from their deep-space experiences, Jacobs said.

* People return with unusual marks, injuries or scars – including scar tissue that formed overnight, “a biological impossibility that I have seen myself,” he said.

His inconvenient truth

For years, Jacobs shunned speaking locally about alien abductions.

“I knew that it was embarrassing to the university,” he said, remembering one Temple donor who threatened to end his charity unless Jacobs quit teaching his UFO class, the only one like it in the country.

But he didn’t quit. Still, his beliefs carried a cost: Tenured in 1981, he said he was twice rejected for promotion and never became a full professor at Temple.

“I was not rewarded for my views,” Jacobs said. “But you do not often find yourself in the middle of a phenomenon that allows you to make a contribution to something that could be of unsurpassing importance in human history.”

Jacobs is among a small but surprising array of well-known folks who reportedly believe in extraterrestrial life, including former U.S. presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, former astronauts Edgar Mitchell and Gordon Cooper, theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and celebrities Mick Jagger, Dan Aykroyd, Muhammad Ali and William Shatner.

On the skeptical side

Critics aren’t swayed by the big names.

Even smart people can believe weird things, said Michael Shermer, founder and editor of Skeptic magazine and a Scientific American columnist.

Shermer interviewed Jacobs for his weekly NPR show, shortly after Jacobs’ 1999 book, The Threat, was published. Shermer said Jacobs “spoke like an academic” but that his beliefs are rooted in his “circular, impenetrable argument” that sneaky aliens have lulled skeptics into disbelief and complacency.

William Hartmann, a senior scientist at the Arizona-based Planetary Science Institute, described Jacobs’ methods as concerning: “Dr. Jacobs’ website describes ‘alien abduction’ reports extracted under hypnosis, but my sense is that most of the scientific community gives little credence to reports coming from hypnosis,” Hartmann said.

Hartmann said he and other scientists examined “photo evidence” of UFOs as members of the U.S. Air Force’s “Condon Committee” in the late 1960s.

“I went in hoping to find real evidence of some extraordinary phenomena, but I came out feeling we had no convincing evidence we could take back to Congress or the USAF or public, and that the sociology of the UFO phenomenon was much more interesting than any actual physical evidence like the alleged photos,” he said.

The SETI Institute is a private, nonprofit science group based in California that searches for signs of extraterrestrial life. But a spokesman declined to comment on Jacobs or the possibility of aliens on Earth, saying that SETI hunts for signs of alien life in deep space, not here.

No ‘gee-whiz thing’

Jacobs himself says he has never seen a UFO nor been abducted by aliens. “I’ve never been to Japan either, but that doesn’t mean Japan doesn’t exist,” he said.

He remains undaunted by skeptics. He has been a believer since he first began researching extraterrestrial life in 1970.

As a college student, he read about aliens and UFOs “for R&R” – but became entranced when he thought: “This could be real,” he said.

At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he switched his doctoral dissertation from the portrayal of women in pre-1915 films to the UFO controversy in America.

He began focusing on alien abductions in the 1980s and vows to continue that research even as it terrifies him more each day.

“I used to think it was the most amazing, wowee, gee-whiz thing,” Jacobs said. “But the more I learn about it, the more I fear it, the more I don’t want to have anything to do with it.”

That’s because he suspects that aliens are intent upon planetary domination, as humans remain mired in ignorance and denial.

“This is a clandestine phenomenon,” Jacobs said. “There is one thing that I can say for sure: They don’t want us to know what they’re doing – because what they’re doing benefits them and not us.”

Photos show evidence of life on Mars, entomologist says …

Ohio University Emeritus Professor William Romoser analyzed a number of photos from various Mars rovers and found insect-like and reptile-like forms in the images, appearing to verify that life exists on Mars.

As scientists scramble to determine whether there is life on Mars, Ohio University Professor Emeritus William Romoser’s research shows that we already have the evidence, courtesy of photographs from various Mars rovers.

Dr. Romoser, who specializes in arbovirology and general/medical entomology, has spent several years studying photographs from the red planet that are available on the Internet. He found numerous examples of insect-like forms, structured similarly to bees, as well as reptile-like forms, both as fossils and living creatures. He presented his findings Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the national meeting of the Entomological Society of America in St. Louis, Missouri.

Romoser said, noting that the images appear to show both fossilized and living creatures:

There has been and still is life on Mars. There is apparent diversity among the Martian insect-like fauna which display many features similar to Terran insects that are interpreted as advanced groups – for example, the presence of wings, wing flexion, agile gliding/flight, and variously structured leg elements.

Romoser said that while the Martian rovers, particularly the Curiosity Rover, have been looking for indicators of organic activity, there are a number of photos which clearly depict the insect- and reptile-like forms. Numerous photos show images where arthropod body segments, along with legs, antennae and wings, can be picked out from the surrounding area, and one even appears to show one of the insects in a steep dive before pulling up just before hitting the ground.

Individual images were carefully studied while varying photographic parameters such as brightness, contrast, saturation, inversion, and so on. No content was added, or removed. Criteria used in Romoser’s research included: Dramatic departure from the surroundings, clarity of form, body symmetry, segmentation of body parts, repeating form, skeletal remains, and observation of forms in close proximity to one another. Particular postures, evidence of motion, flight, apparent interaction as suggested by relative positions, and shiny eyes were taken to be consistent with the presence of living forms.

Particular postures, evidence of motion, flight, apparent interaction as suggested by relative positions, and shiny eyes were taken to be consistent with the presence of living forms.

Distinct flight behavior was evident in many images, Romoser said. These creatures loosely resemble bumble bees or carpenter bees on Earth. Other images show these “bees” appearing to shelter or nest in caves. And others show a fossilized creature that resembles a snake.

Romoser, who was an entomology professor at Ohio University for 45 years and co-founded its Tropical Disease Institute, also spent nearly 20 years as a visiting vector-borne disease researcher at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. Between 1973 and 1998, Romoser authored and co-authored four editions of the widely-used textbook, “The Science of Entomology.”

Romoser noted that interpretations of insect- and reptile-like creatures he described may change in the future as knowledge of life on Mars evolves, but that the sheer volume of evidence is compelling.

He said:

The presence of higher metazoan organisms on Mars implies the presence of nutrient/energy sources and processes, food chains and webs, and water as elements functioning in a viable, if extreme, ecological setting sufficient to sustain life,” he said. “I have observed instances suggestive of standing water or small water courses with evident meander and with the expected blurring of small submerged rocks, larger emergent rocks at the atmosphere/water interface, a moist bank area, and a drier area beyond the moist area. Water on Mars has been reported a number of times, including surface water detected by instrumentation on Viking, Pathfinder, Phoenix, and Curiosity.

The evidence of life on Mars presented here provides a strong basis for many additional important biological as well as social and political questions,” he added. It also represents a solid justification for further study.

USB Stick of Quisto found with incredible images of Planets, Extraterrestrial Spaceships and Aliens

A German man named Quisto, who lives in a small village near Berlin, Germany, found a USB stick with a strange symbol engraved on it in a parking lot near the so-called “Steintor” shopping center. Later, the man opened the USB key in his laptop and to his surprise, he saw many old 20th century images of what appeared to be planets, space, extraterrestrial spaceships and even alien figures.

According to Quisto, who has no idea who the owner of the USB key was, he decided to share about 28 images, hoping that someone will have an answer to give for these mysterious and incredible images.

It seems that the incredible images are authentic, but obviously one must keep in mind that it could be a hoax, but according to a friend of Quisto, the stick contains old Voyager probe travel records and the files that are inside the stick, would be Tops Secret and that should not be in the public domain. The witness stated that he never saw anything like this.

NASA launched Voyager 1 on September 5, 1977 and Voyager 2 42 years ago, or August 20, 1977. The probes had to study the most distant planets in the solar system.

Since its launch, Voyager 2 has met several planets, including Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Some of these planets can also be seen on images, such as different types of UFOs, including the infamous Black Knight. There are also photographs of lunar bases and spaceships flying in space near the Moon and planets in the solar system. In some photographs, mysterious unidentified alien figures are visible. Whether true or false, the experts are analyzing all the photographs and for now they cannot see any case of CGI input.

Meteorological Radars record three “Huge Anomalies” in the Texas skies

The images we show you have appeared through the American media, where there was talk about an Alien Invasion. On November 2, 2019, three huge anomalies were recorded in several Texas cities. Ufologists said they were giant mother ship UFOs . The UFOs showed up on the meteorological radar recording mysterious concentric waves with a diameter of a few miles on Texas late at night around 9:45-10:30pm. The UFOs were so large that the radar bounced off on each of them … causing a series of rings around the UFO. Each UFO had six thick refracted rings around it, caused by the radar bouncing of of them. 

Social media, especially Twitter, was lit up by messages from people who tweeted @wfaweatehr that looked like an alien invasion. They were worried about the rings seen over the cities of Waco, Austin and more. Now the WFFA news is trying to convince people in the video that they have the answer to this phenomenon. According to weather experts, not knowing how to justify these anomalies, they said it was a super refraction. But people do not believe in this version, also because there have been hundreds of UFO reports that evening on Saturday 2 November, not surprisingly when these mysterious radar echoes were appearing.

Alien UFOs do sometimes get caught in weather radar maps. This is 100% proof that several huge UFOs were over Texas this week “They are large enough to cover an entire county. UFO motherships must have remained in place for up to 15 minutes … allowing them to be seen on the radar. I believe they came from the Gulf of Mexico from an alien submarine base. I also believe they were testing their cloaking devices against our human technology to see if they would be noticed … and yes, our technology is reaching them fast. Doppler radar makes larger ships visible. Where did they go then? Probably straight and out of our atmosphere” Said Scott Waring.
