LUCIFER: The Vatican Prepares for Alien Visitation



Authors of a new book claim that Vatican astronomers are keeping their eyes open for an alien savior, with the help of a highly-sophisticated instrument known as LUCIFER, which is an acronym for "Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research".  This apparatus is located on Mt. Graham in southeastern Arizona and is attached to a telescope owned by the University of Arizona.

Tom Horn and Chris Putnam are the authors of Exo-Vaticana: Petrus Romanus, Project LUCIFER, and the Vatican’s astonishing plan for the arrival of an alien savior.  The book's authors claim that they have obtained documents which states that the Vatican believes that we are soon to be visited by an "alien savior" from another planet.

The book relies heavily on statements made by Guy Consolmagno, a planetary scientist at the Vatican Observatory.  In a 2010 interview, Consolmagno told The Guardian that he would be willing to baptize an extraterrestrial being if the opportunity presented itself.  He also stated that, “Any entity – no matter how many tentacles it has – has a soul.”

The Vatican's stance on alien life is mirrored by other religions, many of which also appear to be making preparations for contact with extraterrestrials.  Speaking at the University of Portland in Oregon on May 9, 2013, the Dalai Lama addressed the issue of alien contact, stating that he would like to greet them and shake their hands, adding that visitors from other galaxies are the same as us.

It is interesting to note that the name Lucifer means "bearer of light"- and the LUCIFER telescope works by using two 8.4 m (27 ft) wide mirrors to gather light.

Remembering the ill-fated voyage of the Aerowagon

From 1917 to 1922, the Bolshevik-led Red Army battled the anti-Communist White Army during the Russian Civil War.  By the end of 1919 the Bolsheviks had taken the cities of Omsk and Kiev, and had successfully repelled the White Russian siege of Petrograd.  However, the Bolshevik's momentum would be short-lived as the White Army, after retreating across the Baikal, regrouped and joined forces with Gigory Semyonov's Transbaikal Cossacks.  As the Red Army's losses began to mount, especially in Poland, the Bolsheviks attempted to gain a competitive advantage by embracing new technologies, sometimes with disastrous results.  Such is the sad tale of young inventor Valerian Abakovsky and his Aerowagon.

Abakovsky was a Latvian-born inventor who earned his living as a chaffeur for Cheka, the state security organization created by Lenin.  His position granted him access to many high-ranking Soviets and, although details are scarce, Abakovsky most likely used his influence within th…

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his br…

Jenny Hanivers, Mermaids, Devil Fish, and Sea Monks

Three centuries before P.T. Barnum attracted flocks of crowds with his mummified Fiji Mermaid (which turned out to be a papier-mâché creation featuring a monkey's head and a fish's body), sailors around the world had already began manufacturing "mermaids".  Known as Jenny Hanivers, these creations were often sold to tourists and provided sailors with an additional source of income.  These mummified creatures were produced by drying, carving, and then varnishing the carcasses of fish belonging to the order rajiformes- a group of flattened cartilaginous fish related to the shark which includes stingrays and skates.  These preserved carcasses can be made to resemble mermaids, dragons, angels, demons, and other mythical creatures.


Jenny Hanivers became popular in the mid-16th century, when sailors around the Antwerp docks began selling the novelties to tourists.  This practice was so common  in the Belgian city that it may have influenced the name; it is widely believed …
