The EBH Earthbound Hypothesis and the New Breed of Ufologist
20/07/00 The EBH or Earth Bound Hypothesis claims that UFO's along
with their occupants are from earth, not from outer space as some
others theorize. The EBH has several sub categories.
A. Shaver theorem a name given to those theories or sub-theories
which state that there was or is a large civilization living below us
in a hollow earth or massive caverns below the surface of the earth.
These theories incorporate ancient myths, stories such as Atlantis, Mu
or other lost continents, which are used as support for the overall
B. UFO's are the result of earth bound science, usually
military. Experiments in advanced propulsion or antigravity devices
have resulted in what the general populace calls UFO sightings.
Sub categories of this theory revolve around W.W.II Nazi technology
more underground civilizations along with secret bases such as Roswell,
Dulce or hanger 18. There are cross over theories that speculate these
technologies originally came from alien visitors. However the theory
generally states that earth's scientists are far more advanced than we
are lead to believe. That the military as well as scientists have been
withholding various forms of advanced super-science from us.
The modern western world is at the moment favoring this view over most
others. Depending on whom you listen to the theories divides into
several subgroups. The first claims that UFOs are earthly machines,
efforts have been made to trace the machines far back into history, the
airship scares of the mid 1800's bespeaks vehicles made here on earth,
operated by normal yet illusive earthlings. The Germans during W.W.II
are credited with designing even test flying a saucer shaped craft. This
has in recent times grown to a full-scale fleet of UFO type craft (best
described as CS1 type craft). The stories even detail secret bases in
Antarctica, battles with the navy in the ice plains even super advanced
C. Religious or psycho-mystical. Theories or ideas falling into
this category deal with ancient lands lost continents such as Atlantis,
Mu, or several long forgotten lands such as Shangri-La or Argatha. Some
claim the Aztecs had advanced technology. To others they are merely
ancient visitors from space, who became trapped here eons ago then
slowly lost their advanced technology.
In general these theories work their way toward religious or occult
mystical connotations with secret societies a lot of mystical knowledge
finds it's way into the evidences presented. Other evidences are taken
from the annals of UFO history but flavored with the views of the occult
or mystical researchers.
These sub categories of theorem mix together well, elements of each can
be found in all the others, for example some writers or theorists mix
the element of Hitler's interest in the occult with his interest in
secret weapons. Claiming he may have received the plans for an
antigravity drive from a secret order called Thule. An organization not
unlike the freemasons, a black magic society that had been keeping the
secrets of advanced technology from man for many thousands of years.
Other popular theories place a secret underground civilization here on
earth amongst the mountains of the Himalayas, even extending to the
shatter mountain ranges in the USA. A vast network of caverns with
amazingly long connected tunnels supposedly extends all over the globe.
Below us lives an entire civilization of super advanced beings that use
UFO type craft to visit the surface world. The occult also works its way
into these theories as the inhabitants of these subterranean worlds are
supposedly super advanced not only in science but also the mind, often
exhibiting strange miraculous powers. There are of course claims then
counter claims, even Jesus is supposedly a traveler from these
subterranean levels (keeping mind there are also those who claim he is
from outer space.)
Each theory seems to be able to borrow any part of any other theory to
support its claim. A lot of the evidence that emphatically proves one
point can also be used to infallibly prove another point.
Another popular theory gaining followers today is the "Grey invasion
theory". A variation which is becoming popular is the subterranean
element which briefly states that the Roswell crash was not of an
interstellar or interplanetary type craft but a craft from the inner
earth. Technology was back-engineered from the craft eventually finding
its way into some of our latest stealth planes or jet fighters.
along with captured nazi UFO's has lead to the developments of some
fairly advanced technology even Velcro has at times been linked to
advanced gained from alien or inner earth technology. There are even
those like Robert Lazar who claim to have been part of this back
One can take the evidence from the Roswell case mold it reshape it
claiming that the aliens with their super advanced technology are from
anywhere on or off the earth. That same reasoning can also be used to
show that the Grey's are here to either save mankind or enslave it.
One variation has the aliens as benevolent beings who came here (from
above or below) to save us from some impending doom. Both natural as
well as manmade disasters have been detailed. Other theorem has the
aliens as terrible invaders who are trying to take over our planet. In a
variation on this they are the vanguard for a massive fleet of reptilian
creatures. Who will arrive on a vast spaceship (planetoid) called
wormwood that is even now hurtling toward us from the deep of space.
This is called the "Red Dot" addition, which is a subject I will deal
with at another time.
The earthbound hypothesis is rapidly gaining more followers or adherents.
Many who once believed that UFO's must necessarily be from outer space
are now changing their outlook reexamining theories. The more we
discover about deep space, just how far away life must be, if it exists,
the more prone UFO theorist are to place the origins of these craft a
lot closer to home perhaps even right here on the earth.
From the time Kenneth Arnold saw his nine discs over mount Rainer in
Washington State until as recently as 1985 it was still possible to find
contactees who claimed that all visits by UFO's originated somewhere
within our own Solar System. The reasoning behind the theory was
basically sound; it did away with the problems of faster than light
travel. If the UFO's where coming from our own celestial neighborhood
say Mars or Venus even Saturn then you need not have worried about the
mathematics involved. One need not take into consideration the millions
of years needed to travel from even our closest neighbor outside of our
Our nearest neighbor in the universal sense is the star Alpha Century.
Even assuming that there was a planet near Alpha Century that could
sustain life then assuming that that life was intelligent enough to
build small saucer shaped craft. Then assuming that they would want to
travel all that way, buzz a few farmers never actually reveal themselves
to us. It would take by the most conservative estimates, about four
million years to get here from there.
It was convenient for aliens to be from Venus or to have bases on our
moon as it solved this problem of space travel, even at light speed.
Today however we know enough about our immediate part of the galaxy
especially our own Solar System to be fairly well certain that there is
no life close by except of course ours.
This places contactees like Adamski or others of his ilk in a very
awkward position. There are still people who believe Adamski's claim
that he went to Venus as well as Mars. They believe that life similar to
ours Existed on these planets. Either these contactees where being lied
to, or they where doing the lying. Recent evidence suggests that it was
the contacts not the aliens who lied.
I had heard the George Adamski story from many sources I had seen
several of his pictures, which looked quite convincing considering how
long ago they were taken. There were claims that he was an hoaxer in for
the money, other people saying that he was some sort of hero, while
others who thought that he was quite mad.
Adamski's first book 'Flying Saucers Have Landed' is basically a short
story, which describes his first initial sightings of craft through to a
meeting with one of the Occupants. The occupant was allegedly from Venus
Adamski gave him the name Orthon. The book finishes with Adamski
claiming that the Orthon would return to visit him again.
Claims made in this book are no wilder than many other contactee
claims. However, when we move to the second book 'Inside
the Space Ship', things start becoming a
little bit too bizarre. The second book details further contacts with
the man from Venus. In its amazing pages we are introduced to a
Martian as well as a man from Saturn. All these people are Human
Adamski tells us that he is told that all the planets in the Solar
System are inhabited.
The Scout Ship takes him to the Mother Ship where others meet him
taking it in turn to show him around the ship. He is then taken to a
Laboratory where they view the surface of the moon. Adamski claims
there are spacecraft hangers inside the larger craters of the Moon. On
the 'dark' side of the moon he claims there are clouds, mountains,
rivers, lakes forest even cities! Adamski's books are only recommended
for serious UFO researchers or others interested in the history of
Recently the ufonaughts have moved further afield. Zeta Riticuli or
other far off galaxies are much too far away for us to determine what
the probability for life is. How convenient is it for contactees or
chanellers that it is extremely unlikely in our lifetime or indeed
many lifetimes to come that our scientist will be able to refute any
claims for life on these far galaxies. We of course return to the
problem of distance verses time but there are ways around that too, as
we shall see.
Not unlike the Christian concept of god,
the more that we discovered about the universe the further away God
seemed to get. Aliens are also getting further away. Some however are
getting closer. From right here on Earth or as many conspiracy
theorists would have us believe "right under our noses". Many people
claim that there is a possible earth bound origin for the strange
craft that flit about our skies. Even as Betty and Barny Hill (no
relation) where claiming that their aliens where from Zeta Reticuli
others where stating that the lost continent of Atlantis was the UFO's
According to Mm Bavalski founder of the Theosophical society, or
followers of the sleeping prophet Edgar Cacey Atlantis somehow
survived the deluge. its machinery still operating as late as 1920.
These super weapons deep beneath the waters of the Bermuda triangle
are responsible for the planes or ships that disappear in the area.
Super weapons like these also feature in the Shaver mysteries.
According to Shavers supporters chief of which was the late Ray Palmer*
a well known some might say respected science fiction editor (more on
Mr Palmer later). The earth is hollow inhabited by a race of beings
called Dero, s. These evil insidious creatures delight in using their
technology to hassle or befuddle those of us that live on the surface
world. Their amazing technology includes mind-altering machines
including, you guessed it UFO's.
The base for theses UFO's is some where in the arctic circle. Palmer
even produced a satellite photograph of a giant hole at the South Pole
through which these craft could enter. Proof positive, proof that is
also being resurrected more recently by those who follow the Nazi UFO
Apparently the Nazis where either visited by aliens during the final
stages of W.W.II or given the technology to build antigravity engines,
eventually developing a working interplanetary craft. Or they invented
it themselves. Right now even as you read this there are secret bases
on the moon ( off world neighborhood hypothesis) they have travelled
to Mars, even becoming stranded there for a while. Survivors of the
Third Reich are living in secret bases on the Moon, thus avoiding the
war crimes tribunal.
the German scientist get their hands on a flying saucer as far back as
1939 or was Roswell the first contact, are all UFO's or at least the
great majority of sightings actually secret government test flights of
the next stage of stealth craft. A natural progression of off world
hypothesis is that some secret government or organisation has
developed or been given the knowledge of
antigravity. Knowledge which these individuals are keeping to
themselves, only to be revealed at the last minute perhaps as one
Japanese investigator states , " To appear at the last moment saving
us all from some earth shattering catastrophe, they will arrive in
UFO's which they already have".
Several writers have covered both the off world with the Earthbound
hypothesis's by stating that "They will claim to be our long lost
space brothers or they will claim that they knew about the coming doom
all along "Had to keep it all secret for our own protection". Either
way we will all be their thankful yet unwitting slaves from then on.
Stan Deyo** makes similar claims in his 'Cosmic Conspiracy' yet leans
toward the dark forces of Satan as the true course of all our woes.
The whole Roswell affair hinges on a small but ever decreasing amount
of evidence that says that the US government is in cahoots with the
evil greys. The Roswell situation came about due to two elements.
Frank Scully's book 'Behind the Flying Saucers' (1950) then Allendes
claims to have witnessed the Philadelphia experiment. Both have taken
on the proportions of urban legend having grown into a mixed up
conglomeration of claims then counter claims. Ending recently in the
sudden mysterious arrival on the scene of the alien autopsy footage.
Frank Scully was the American columnist who first suggested to the
world that recovered flying disks with a crew of little men were in
the possession of the US. In his book, 'Behind the Flying Saucers',
Scully claimed that up to that time there had been four such
recoveries. These stories have since proved very unreliable no
supporting evidence has been uncovered. Scully sited various 'sources'
which now seem dubious. Scully is also the name given to one of the
characters in the hit TV series the X Files. Perhaps this is an in
joke on the UFO community as Dana Scully is the Series sceptic?
The same people who a few years ago where stating that the
MJ12 documents are the genuine article,
where a few years before that flocking to Eric Von Danikens lectures.
Before that people of the same mentality where just as easily beguiled
or beflumixed by Adamskis claims that he had been to Venus or that a
photo of a chicken brooder*** was a flying saucer. Understandably they
also wanted to believe that the autopsy footage was real but by this
time it was too late serious investigators had had enough. Almost
nobody rushed out instantly believing the footage was genuine. We were
The latest claim by fanatics is that the whole thing from beginning to
end was an elaborate ruse or disinformation exercise. In other words
there is a real conspiracy going on the whole Roswell thing including
everything created around it was simply to throw us off the track.
This does not take into account the growing evidence that the whole
thing from beginning to end was a hoax. Chief amongst the candidates
for smartest joker of the century is Bill Moore.
More recently Billy Meire the one armed Swiss contactee claimed that
he had been in contact with beings from the Pleaides. Billy became
famous for his remarkably clear photographs of the pelaideians Beam
Ships. Billy's remarkable photo's included, shots of the beautiful
alien girl Samjese, Photos of Jesus on the cross even a close up of
the supernova dubbed Gods eye. Amazing stuff which people wanted to
believe but in the end couldn't, it was just too good. But then so was
There are those that still believe Adamski Shaver or Miere. The number
of true believers is getting smaller, not so small as to have no
effect on how people feel about those of us that study the phenomena,
the press has a field day with mass suicides that are linked to comets,
people gassing themselves because they fear the MIB's. Or others who
try to implant Orgone energy into cardboard boxes because the King of
UFO's told them that the aliens told him to tell them to do it. People
look at all of us, even the serious investigators like we are all mad
wild eyed fringe cultist's waiting for the space brothers to arrive
taking us away.
With the MJ12 documents now discredited to a very reasonable degree (save
a few holdouts) I have predicted where the next big turn in Ufology
will be. Ufologists must now turn away from Mars, Venus or other
planets within our reach, we know far too much about these planets to
suppose that here could be life intelligent enough to build ships then
travel here. Mars is by all accounts a beige coloured dead world.
Anyone with Internet access who dials up NASA can log straight onto
information from Observer the latest Mars probe verifying this for
We must look away from our own planet, there are so few places left
unexplored that the possibility of secret bases is so far remote as to
be nothing more than conspiratorial wishful thinking. The simple fact
is that the Amazon, the Antarctic or the bottom of the Bermuda
triangle do not contain secret bases earth bound space creatures or
long lost super advanced races of Atlantean's. True believers may not
like it but it is unavoidably true. The supposed evidence for such
claims has shown to be lacking in substance being based on arguments
that come apart at the slightest logical questioning tug.
While folding space-time theorem offers an intriguing mathematical
puzzle, there is no evidence that UFO's come from our own future or
from identical universes that interlock with ours. Even the mountains
of documented UFO reports do not support this theory. (Although I
predict that these reports will very soon begin appearing). This
newest location hypothesis will make the basis for the next millennium
of discussion, for the moment though it remains just a theory.
Right now the UFO community is sitting on the verge of a new wave of
speculation together with new perhaps incredible discoveries about the
origins of the craft, (Channelers not withstanding). The stir coursed
by the MJ12 documents then the Autopsy footage have gone the same way
as the Miere or Adamski sensations. What is left in its wake? A new
breed of investigator, one who is willing indeed only too eager to
check then recheck any claims made about secret documents or amazing
pieces of film, try claiming now that you are a government agent with
secret knowledge, see how long you can keep up the pretence. Fewer
people are going to come forward with FOIA papers with bold black ink
all over them. People are going to research, investigate double
checking each fact for themselves. Ufologists are now undertaking
their own investigations relying less on the observations or claims of
Had the Santanelli film been released ten years ago there would have
been no shortage of people prepared to jump on the bandwagon. The 90's
however saw a new breed of UFO investigator not so ready to jump in
where angels fear to tread. We looked at the film, examined the stock,
looking for errors or inconsistencies most importantly we asked
questions. Throughout the years there have been those that stayed true
to the real nature of the enigma, Santanelli however wasn't stupid he
knew as many people would buy the film in an effort to prove it fake
as would purchase it because they believed it.
* There is a general consensus that I agree with that Palmer did not
really support or believe Shavers theories. That Palmer was the Col
Parker of his time he could see a dollar to be made.
** As far as I know Stan Deyo has never actually said this in print.
But, this is a pretty big but, he admitted it to me personally in an
interview some years ago.
*** There is the claim that the designer of the chicken brooder
actually used Adamskis drawing as a model for the feeder. However as
far as know Adamski never received any royalties.
