Both Marian Apparitions and UFO/alien encounters have their share of trickster like, deceptive aspects.

BVM Apparitions, UFOs and Deceptions

Marian apparitions are not a strictly and literal religious event, but a Fortean/UFO occurrence; a theory I share with those UFO and paranormal thinkers who think the along the same lines. Appearances of the BVM (Blessed Virgin Mary) are not to be interpreted literally within the confines of religious dogma, but are manifestations of something paranormal, and very possibly extraterrestrial.

Both events -- UFOs and BVM sightings -- have their deceptive side. The UFO phenomena contains a huge amount of contradictory, Trickster, manipulative, and contrasting behaviors. For example, the Contactee Era was primarily benign; usually tall, good looking aliens, kind and helpful, who appeared to the  contactees. Their messages were positive, their very appearance was positive: tall, good looking, stunningly handsome and beautiful. They usually came from planets associated with love and grace: Venus, Neptune. These experiences seemed to be replaced with abductions -- kidnappings -- by usually short, gray, characterless beings who did rude things and didn’t seem at all interested in conversing with us as any kind of respect or consideration. The  contradictions within the UFO phenomena are numerous.

Both the religious and the non-religious observer of Marian Apparitions know that these appearances by Mary also contain contradictions. Not all apparitions are considered valid; some are considered false by the religious: tricks by a negative force (like the devil, Satan, those who interpret the “Trickster” as a strictly demonic and literal entity) to confuse and deceive. The apparitions at Medjugorje are considered by some religious scholars to be a faux event, for many reasons: the apparitions have been going on for too long, (The visitations at Medjugorje began June 24th, 1981) and the behaviors of the BVM are not what is expected of the Virgin or church doctrine.

Students of UFOlogy know that many UFO events are full of trickster characteristics. One famous example is the experience of farmer Joe Simonton of Eagle River, Wisconsin, who, in April of 1961,  saw a 30 foot wide UFO land near his house. Three short, but  human-appearing beings,  wearing uniforms, asked the farmer for a jug of water and in return they gave him three  pancakes. (The number three is important here too; three being a powerful number in folklore and esoterica.) A classic Fortean/UFO event that makes no sense.  The UFO literature is full of these seemingly nonsensical encounters.  Here we have a visitation from space, with beings giving gifts, but what’s the message, where’s the proof?

The visitations at Medjugorje are also full of “off the wall”  events that don’t conform to the expected messages and behaviors of BVM sightings. According to some Catholics, the visions at Medjugorje are full of contractions about church doctrine and conflict with other, accepted apparitions (Fatima, Lourdes, etc.) accused of being of the Charismatic movement, Protestant, commercial, and full of weird Trickster, shape shifting events:
<blockquote>"One day, as she (Mirjana) was waiting for the Virgin, she saw the light, and out of the light came the devil, disguised in the features and clothes of Mary, but he had a dark, hideous face...After a while, the Holy Virgin came and said to her: 'I am sorry about that...'" ("Yugoslavia and the BVM" by Tequi) </blockquote>
Source:<a target="_blank" href=”http://www.geocities.com/athens/oracle/9463/medjugorje.html”>Traditional Catholic Information</a>

The entity at Medjugorje has also predicted the outcome of a soccer game, became offended because of visitors trampling her veil, and insisted a witness give her the blood stained handkerchief of Christ:
<blockquote>Sept. 4, 1981: Seer Vicka in her diary writes: "We questioned her (the Virgin) about the man who saw Jesus in the street, when he was driving in his car. He met a man who was all bloodstained - this man was Jesus - who gave him a bloodstained handkerchief, telling him (the driver) to throw it in the river. Going on his way, he met a lady - it was the Blessed Virgin Mary; she asked the driver for the bloodstained handkerchief. The man gave a handkerchief belonging to himself, but the Virgin asked for the bloodstained one. 'If he had not given it to me, it would have been the last judgment for all.' The Virgin said that that (event) was true . (report of Bishop Zanic, 1990, in whose diocese of Mostar, the apparition took place.)</blockquote>

Looking at the history of Marian Apparitions up to the present, (including everything from Our Lady of Guadalupe to the Bayside events) and comparing them to UFO events, we begin to see how the same phenomena is behind these events, manifested in different ways. Whatever UFOs are, we know that a large part of the phenomena appears to be contradictory and manipulative, performing tricks. We interpret this as intentional deception, and very possibly it is. The performances by entities, both alien and Marian, are secretive even while overt, which is another contradiction, or really, more of a paradox.

The question has been asked many times by some Fortean and UFO researchers, among them John Keel, Jacques Vallee, and Joaquim Fernandes and Fina d’Armada: is the force behind many (or even all) UFO/alien encounters the same as Marian and other religious apparitions?

Reviewed by John Coppolella 9/5/2008
In my humble opinion, I believe there are waves of entities from different places and times constantly interacting and interbreeding with the indigenous inhabitants of the Earth, and as such represent something similar to the waves of invaders that Europe, the Americas and other colonized placed have faced for eons. It would seem from the contradictory stories, that there are many groups of UFO related beings, each having its own agenda. They infiltrate the Earth's civilizations like conquering the armies of old, except with the possible addition of a time travel element to add a zesty and confusing punch to the Earth's history. BTW, where did the Egyptian and other pyramids come from? Regan, I have written a similar article on UFO origins from a technological point of view. I enjoyed your commentary Regan and look forward to tracking your work for a long time. Rockie Coppolella
