George Adamski, 1950: The First UFO Contactee
who studies flying saucers will invariably hear the name of George
Adamski. Adamski was a controversial figure who popped up in the early
1950s. He was a kind of jack-of-all-trades, even doing a stint in the
U.S. Cavalry in 1913. During Prohibition he came up with scheme to sell
wine, he founded a monastery and started his very own order of monks!
He called it the Royal Order of Tibet, despite the fact that it was
located in southern California. Anyway, since it was a religious order
he could sell all the wine he could make.
World War II or shortly thereafter Adamski opened a hamburger stand
near the Mount Palomar Observatory. Either the close proximity to
Palomar or his burger's secret sauce got his juices going and he
started referring to himself as Professor Adamski. Over the next few
years Adamski claimed he had seen flying saucers near Mt. Palomar
Observatory on at least two hundred different occasions.
A Trip to Venus
had many supporters, and in 1952 he claimed to have met human-looking
aliens who said that they were from the planet Venus. He also said he
had been taken aboard spacecraft and taken to other planets in our
solar system, which he described in vivid detail in several books.
controversy surrounding George Adamski is thick. First, the conditions
he describes on the various planets are known to be impossible. There
was also dispute about the photographs he said he took of the craft.
Adding to this, the intelligence agencies of the U.S. and British
governments befriended Adamski and sponsored a speaking tour around the
world, and nobody knows right from left. To this very day there are
those who will swear that everything he said was true and equally as
many who say he was a con man. Since he died in 1965, none of these
people have ever met him anyway.
Some Stuff Checks Out
of the things attributed to Adamski have proven to be accurate;
specifically his descriptions and drawings of the spacecraft now
commonly referred to as "Adamski" beamships. These saucers look like an
inverted bell with the top of the dome squared off. The most prominent
features are what look like three equally spaced balls attached to the
bottom of the saucer. Since Adamski's claims were made in the 1950s,
this type of craft has been seen by thousands of other people around
the world. Adamski's drawings were dead on.
"He said Venus; We didn't!"
recent contactees have been told by alien beings that the people they
encountered in the 1950s frequently made the erroneous assumption they
were from a planet in our solar system such as Venus. Rather than
confuse the poor contactee, the aliens just said that they were from
the "fourth or fifth planet."
Alien beings have also said that
in all cases they were being accurate, but they did not specify which
solar system or which dimension they were from. It is hard enough for
people to understand it now, much less the early 1950s. In 1950 the
movie monster Godzilla didn't even exist.
