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.

I’m hearing that Twilight Zone music in the background :)
I thought it was the Outer Limits!
“Mars needs Morons!”
That can find them in Chicago! Come and get them.
And don’t forget that Farrakhan proclaimed Obama the Messiah (I guess he means Mahdi).
Who’d ever thought you and Calypso Louis were kindred spirits. Huh.
Hopefully the entire lot of them have a comet to catch.
You have a point!!!!!!
There is wisdom in your acknowledgment of our relative ignorance.
EVERYBODY believes in extraterrestrial beings!
Most believe in God or other beings/deities not of this world. And, yes, the most widely read document (the Bible) on this subject does actually refer to ET vehicles.
Some believe in the gods Time and Chance. That we are here by accident and are molded by eons. And The Book of Chance (1:1) tells us that life exists elsewhere.
Between those with faith in God and those with confidence in Darwinism, I don’t know a single soul who believes we are the only life in the universe.
Quix, that National Geographic face of 7 billion poster is remarkable. Would like to know more about it, is it from the current issue? Thanks.
Hey - where’d you find such a good picture of him?
I’ll bring the magazine out of my room so you can see it.
Thanks for the ping!
AND THE BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS
almost as much as the alien anal probes!
Never had any alien probes, but did have a human one last year.
Came out a clean bill of health, I’m happy to report! Another 5 years till I suffer that one again...
Louis Farrakhan says Moammar Gadhafi has always been a friend

Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan says Moammar Gadhafi has always been a friend and he wont distance himself from the Libyan dictator.
Speaking Sunday at the annual Saviours Day convention at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Farrakhan didnt discuss specifics about the deadly uprisings in Libya.
But the 77-year-old said no leader has been loved by 100 percent of his people and said that if Gadhafi is persecuted for crimes against humanity, the same should apply to former President George W. Bush for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Farrakhan visited Gadhafi in the 1980s and in 1996 accepted a humanitarian award from him. But during his speech Sunday he warned the wave of revolution spreading across the Middle East is coming to the United States.
Speaking to followers who all but filled the 18,000-seat venue, he said, What you are looking at in Tunisia, in Egypt, in Yemen, in Jordan, in Libya, in Bahrain will soon, very soon be in all the nations of the world . . . and even sooner take place in America.
What you see happening there, youd better prepare because it will be coming to your door, America.
And Farrakhan added, I hope that President Obama will remember his instructions to all nations be careful how you attack and kill innocent people who are protesting. Take your own words into your bosom and be reminded when it comes to your home.
Followers rewarded him with several raucous standing ovations during the four-hour speech.
Dont leave until I close that might be a year from now, he joked with listeners at one point.
Teach on! his followers urged him.
Farrakhan also said he had spent time at the Church of Scientologys celebrity center in Los Angeles and had been impressed with the churchs method of auditing a process he said was comparable to therapy.
He said the churchs founder L. Ron Hubbard had a mission to civilize white people, adding that Hubbard is so exceedingly valuable to every white person on this earth.
Scientology books were available for sale at the Saviors Day event, but Farrakhan said he was not converting and did not need a new religion.
His speech also covered familiar topics from previous Saviors Day events, including a focus on the common beliefs of Christians and Muslims who he said should not be at war with one another, how the Nation of Islam believes that white people were created from blacks 4,000 years ago on an Aegean island by a black scientist, and on problems affecting the black community, including street gangs.
He also criticized the sexually charged performances of popstar Rihanna, saying they were filthy and that people who enjoyed such antics were swine, a description he also applied to homosexuals and lesbians. He also criticized immigrant Muslims in the Chicago area for moving to white suburbs and being patronizing toward black Muslims.
During Black History Month, schools should teach from Nation of Islam books that say Jewish people took advantage of blacks, he said. An Anti-Defamation League spokesman said Farrakhans comments were just the usual hate speech and propoganda.
He warned that non-believers and the sinful would face the wrath of God through high-technology UFOs or wheels that he has often described in previous addresses.
