Farrakhan's Nation of Islam to Argue UFOs Are Real
FoxNews.com ^ | 2/25/11 | Associated Press

Posted on 02/26/2011 9:08:29 AM PST by OwenKellogg

The Nation of Islam, long known for its promotion of black nationalism and self-reliance, now is calling attention to another core belief that perhaps isn't so well-known: the existence of UFOs.

When thousands of followers gather in suburban Chicago this weekend for the group's annual Saviours' Day convention, one of the main events will include a panel of scientists discussing worldwide UFO sightings, which they claim are on the rise.

The idea of seeking the divine in the skies is deeply rooted in the Chicago-based Nation of Islam, whose late leader Elijah Muhammad detailed in speeches and writings a massive hovering object loaded with weapons he called "The Mother Plane" -- although religion experts, Nation of Islam leaders and believers offer very different interpretations of what exactly happens aboard the plane, its role or how it fits into religious teachings.

LOL, I thought the same thing. We have a half-dozen or so who you could replace Farrakhan's name above with theirs and it would be a regular post.

Reverend Farrakhan should be surrounded by cameras from every alphabet network. I hope his every word on this subject is broadcast to every household in America, repeatedly, all weekend long. Saturation coverage of this man is what we need in this country. I’m not joking.

I saw a UFO once. After watching it move for a few seconds, my mind was able to piece together what it was, and it became a IFO.

I've long suspected that Farrakhan's mind doesn't operate in this Universe.

Is this the same Farrakhan who had 20K+ people at the Chigaco civic ctr, including the Justice Bros.and everyone who is someone in the civil rights movement on there feet cheering wildly he he called homosexuality a “bigger threat to the Black family than drugs and racism”?

Well, just to pull peoples' heads out of the clouds and get their feet firmly implanted back here on Earth, let's just look at the meaning of that acronym, UFO:

Unidentified Flying Object

Now, what's got you in such a tizzy about that? Or Louis Farrakhan for that matter? Or anybody who gets their panties in a wad about it, pro or con?

It's the conclusions that are reached about the nature of them. That there actually are unidentified flying objects gave rise to the acronym. We didn't know what they were. It's still used for flying objects, the identity of which is unknown.

Now, take a deep breath and settle down. Jumping to conclusions about someone else jumping to conclusions seems to have unsettled you, somehow.

Given that the fallen angels and the Islamic demonized characters all submit to & serve satan . . . no surprise he’s beginning to pontificate about this on cue.

The schedule of the GREAT DECEPTION of the END TIMES is progressing as planned.

One middle Eastern country recently hosted many of the powers that be at an INNOVATIONS conference . . . may have been Bharain sp? I forget.

Tony, Blair, Billdo Klintoon, et al . . . the fee to attend was $4,000 so it kept the riffraff out.

Stanton Friedman was invited with Jacque Vallee and some others for a 75 minute panel discussion of UFO’s and related technologies.

FREEPERS who are still willfully ignorant about such realities will need to be adjusting their reality testing before too much longer, The disclosure process is increasing more and more rapidly with more and more incidents of more and more revealing drama and specifics.

Here’s a youtube about a recent Mexican government complaint against the US government’s hindering and dragging it’s feet on disclosure.

I think the conference you are referring to (at which Stan Friedman and Tony Blair et al were to speak) is the Global Competitiveness Forum held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in January, 2011.

I don’t see how anyone could listen to Farrakhan talk on any subject and then deny the existence of UFO’s AND space aliens. Louis himself had to have dropped in from way beyond Pluto.

BTW, the very fact that Stanton Friedman and Jacques Vallée spoke at a conference of this magnitude is, as you suggest, a sea change in the credibility and global acceptance of ufology.

As Joe Biden would say, "this is a big effin' deal!";-)

Thanks for the ping, Quix.

From the article:

"Nation of Islam leaders often quote Biblical references to the prophet Ezekiel - along with Elijah Muhammad's teachings - when it comes to the wheel. In his book of articles on the subject, Muhammad described a planet-sized manmade vessel that orbits earth and is purported to be loaded with 1,500 planes or wheels, words that have since been used interchangeably. Their purpose is unclear."

"Some experts have made comparisons to the Biblical concept of Rapture, which teaches believers will be taken up to heaven, while everyone else will remain on earth for a period of torment, concluding with the end of time".

That's the first time I've seen the Rapture openly be associated with UFOs.

And you know there is speculation that the Rapture will be explained away as "those people were taken by UFOs."

Interesting.
