Spaceships over Jerusalem

“To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational.” Stephen Hawking
Although NASA’s recent discovery of a new kind of life (a bacteria that survives in conditions previously thought uninhabitable) was somewhat less “alien-life-y” than the rumors prefacing the announcement, talk of UFOs has been in the news lately, to an almost eerie degree, starting with Stephen Hawking’s recent announcement that we should not go looking for (or trying to contact) alien races, because:
“We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach. If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”
Then, this January 28th, some remarkable footage emerged — extremely convincing, if you ask me, and yet to be debunked – videotaped by two separate witnesses: of a luminous disc descending vertically at quite a speed to hover over Jerusalem’s sacred Mount Zion:
According to Revelation, Mount Zion is where, at the end of time, the Second Coming of Jesus begins -and where the Kingdom of Heaven is supposed to be established as “The New Jerusalem” comes down out of the heavens onto the earth.
The illuminated disc descended vertically at great speed and hovered over the Dome of the Rock, an ancient Islamic shrine, only to shoot out a circular radius of sudden light and shoot vertically back up into the sky at great speed. Below, the Dome of the Rock, one of Islam’s oldest structures:
The significance of the shrine stems from The Foundation Stone within its walls. It is also known as the “Pierced Stone,” because it has a small hole on the southeastern corner that enters a cavern beneath the rock, known as the Well of Souls. It is believed by some to have been the location of the Holy of Holies in the Temple, and is the holiest site in Judaism. Jewish tradition views it as the spiritual centerpoint of heaven and earth, and Jews, currently and historically, traditionally face the stone while praying.
So basically, the place is charged, and significant for the world’s most dominant religions. Quite a fancy place to make a show. And the question arises, since the place is so steeped in spiritual/paranormal legend: is it the first time?
“…As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.” Ezekiel 1:4 – 1:24
In a weird twist, Chinese National television Xinhua reported on January 4th 2011 that the Obama administration may be preparing to disclose government contact with extraterrestrials, on the eve of China President Hu Jintao’s state visit to the United States. Online sources speculate that a cold war may be developing between leading nations in regards to who will disclose alien contact first, detailing that, while no leader wants to admit ET knowledge, they also may not want another nation to beat them to the punch.
