Everything works as if the revelation were designed to isolate the witness, prophet, or believer from
his social environment. He often becomes an outcast and has to flee. This has been the fate of
numerous UFO witnesses. In France, several farmers saw their fields nearly ruined by curious or
antagonistic crowds. The man in Michigan who reported the Swamp Gas case was jeered at in the
streets, and people came in cars to throw bottles at his house.
The believers, if they seek a climate in which to pursue their new life in accordance with the
implications of their vision, have to create their own sect and move away. Moses did this. So did
Joseph Smith. Often one sees the leader deserted by his wife and family. The spouse is especially
likely to feel rejected and to betray him at the time when he or she most needs comfort. The wife of
Martin Harris burned 116 newly translated pages of the Book of Mormon. The wives of several
American policemen involved in modern UFO incidents divorced them.
Sometimes the specific instructions given to the believers are such that their group continues to be
persecuted for centuries (Jews) and have to endure great hardships before finding a place where
they can settle down (Israel, Utah). The leaders are harassed by crowds (in one town the police
chief's own trailer was destroyed by fire, blamed on arson) and occasionally put to death (Jesus was
crucified; Joseph Smith was lynched by a crowd in Illinois).
I think the stage is set for the appearance of new faiths, centered on the UFO belief. To a greater
degree than all the phenomena modern science is confronting, the UFO can inspire awe, the sense
of the smallness of man, and an idea of the possibility of contact with the cosmic. The religions we
have briefly surveyed began with the miraculous experience of one person, but today there are
thousands for whom the belief in otherworldly contact is based on intimate conviction, drawn from
what they regard as personal contact with UFOs and their occupants. The phenomenon and its
effects are working here as they have worked at Fatima and Lourdes and in other places: as a
spiritual control system.
The table below should make this clear. The first column summarizes the physical effects described
by witnesses of the miracles we have reviewed, in the actual words of the persons who reported
them. The second column contains descriptions of the state of the persons contacted by UFOs, both
during and after the experience; the sighting references are to the catalogue published in my earlier
book, Passport to Magonia. I think the reader can draw his or her own conclusions. I have barely
scratched the surface. Indeed, I invite you to seek other documents in any library to complete this
morphology or miracles with fresh material.
