I. Group Profile
  • Name: UFO Cults
  • Founder: Kenneth Arnold
  • Date Founded:
    Kenneth Arnold's sighting which reportedly occurred on June 24, 1947 marks the beginning of the modern UFO movement. However, UFO sightings and interplanetary travel were reported as early as the 1750's.
  • Birth Place of Movement: Cascade Mountains in western Washington.
  • Brief History: On June 24, 1947, pilot Kenneth Arnold was flying over the Cascades when he reported seeing "nine shiny objects in a chain-like formation speeding by at some 1600 miles per hour" (Ellwood 393). Arnold compared what he saw to a saucer skipping across water. This characterization led the media to adopt the concept of "flying saucer". Arnold's report was quickly followed by many other sightings reported from various places around the country.
    The introduction of this phenomenon into society brought about rumors as to the meanings behind these unidentified flying objects. Soon, people began to believe that UFOs had made contact with humans. These humans came to be known as contactees . The first contactee was George Adamski , who claimed to have met a UFO traveler from Venus. Throughout the fifties, there were many other contactees who claimed interaction with interplanetary occupants.

      It looks that the General Secretary of the French Interministerial Mission to Combat Cults could come to Clearwater when the scamologists are picketing in Paris, on 23d october... I dunno more yet. I presume that he'll buy a lot of Boules Quies -that's wax to shut the ears! - if ever he comes through the airport of Clearwater: it looks as if some of those are needed, since crazy people are shouting all around "Nazi, go home" every time they see an european official defending human rights! I even heard that those crazy picketers were wearing some sort of nazi suits themselves. Is that true? That their crosses were more or less the nazi cross, but with the ends of the cross redesigned in the center instead of on extremities.

    About cults:
    " person's cult is another's religion; all religions begin life as cults. An alternative definition is that a cult is a religion which you happen to dislike. " Anthony Campbell, in a review of David V. Barrett's book: " The New Believers ."
    The term " cult " is generally used as a hateful snarl word that is used to intentionally devalue people and their faith groups. It creates fear and loathing among the public, and contributes greatly to religious intolerance in North America. The word "cult," particularly as used by the media, carries a heavy emotional content. The word suggests is that this is a group that you should detest, avoid, and fear. In reality, the only "crime" of most "cults" is that they they hold different religious beliefs from whomever is doing the attacking. Individuals and organizations have assigned many meanings to the word "cult." The result is mass confusion:

    The Cult Information Network
    The Cult Information Network is a service provided for those interested in
    finding out about abusive and manipulative religions.
    This service pulls no punches. Mainline religions are not free from it's
    exposure If something out of harmony with
    Biblical fact is noted it will be mentioned.
    Since this service provides information all attempts will be
    made to provide the sources for that information. By doing this much time will be saved by giving you the information and you doing what you want
    with it. CIN will not necessarily disagree with everything some of these groups believe. Few cults are all bad. If that was the case no one would be in them. Who would be foolish enough join a cult if asked? Since something good drew the person to the group that will be brought out if possible. Look at this service as a sort of the Ralph Nader of Religious Exposure, or a consumer reports of cult like groups. One thing that should be noted about cults is they share the same sins.
