UFO Worshipers Offer Free Surgeries to Circumcised Women

UFO group the Raelians is extending a helping hand to women who have been circumcised against their will. The group will pay for a controversial surgery meant to reverse the effects of the circumcision through a clinic located in San Francisco. Not all doctors agree that the procedure will restore a patient's sexual feelings and ability to experience an orgasm.

In its quest to allow as many women as possible to feel sexual gratification, the group is expanding its efforts to a clinic in Australia. Already, the medical center has been nicknamed "the Pleasure Hospital" for... obvious reasons.

To fund its effort to not only educate the public about the horrors of female genital mutilation, but to also perform the reconstructive surgeries, the Raelians have set up a nonprofit organization called Clitoraid. So far, the organization was able to drum up enough private donations to pay for the construction of the Australian facility.

The Raelians subscribe to the belief that extraterrestrials created humankind to experience joy. Because of this belief, the group looks upon female circumcision as a perversion of that extraterrestrial higher plan for the human race. Claude Vorilhon founded the group in the 1970s after he claimed to have had experiences with visitors from outer space. In the past, the group claimed to have cloned a human, but the claims were never verified by outside groups.

Moon Civilization Cover-Up!

In case you missed it, a while ago a (now former) NASA employee has blown the covers on what he claims is a huge cover-up. Ken Johnston, who formerly worked for NASA's Data and Photo Control Department, claims to have been forced to participate in the cover-up. He went so far as to co-author a book about alien conspiracy theories, where he told all about NASA's clandestine activities.

According to Johnston, astronauts have found the remains of an ancient alien civilization on the moon. One would assume the civilization is conveniently located on the dark side of the moon, making it impossible to be seen with telescopes. Apparently this alien civilization was highly advance, and left behind numerous pieces of machinery. One of these machines can "manipulate gravity" meaning they could live on the moon and experience gravitational pull.

Someone beat Newt Gingrich to his moon colony idea, long before the Newt was born. Perhaps the new plan will be to refurbish the alien digs and start sending valuable members of society to live on the moon, where they can harvest moon crops and raise moon cows. It makes one wonder how the former alien inhabitants of the moon died off...

Cryptid of the Week: Yeti (and the US Federal Government Protocol)

Apparently Uncle Sam (AKA the United States) at least used to think Yeti exists in the Himalayan Mountains. During the Eisenhower Administration, the federal government had a protocol for anyone hiking in the Himalayas who happened upon the Abominable Snowman. US News and World Report broke the story of a federal archivist who recently found documentation of the protocol.

US citizens were to capture and not kill the cryptid if they came across it, unless Yeti tried to harm them. Why an animal that is not used to human contact or chains would lash out is mystifying, but that was the order. I can't help but think of Luke Skywalker trying to handcuff Chewbacca in Star Wars I'm sure everyone in a hiking party was just volunteering to tie ol' Yeti up first.

Interestingly enough, the protocol also required people to purchase a Yeti hunting permit. If the party did have to kill Yeti, then they were required to take a picture of the cryptid alive first. According to the government documents, quite a few parties applied for permits, including three parties sent by one US millionaire obsessed with catching Yeti and Bigfoot.

Cryptid of the Week: Utah's New Bigfoot Video

Utah seems to be a fairly active state for Bigfoot sightings, believe it or not. I have lived in Utah for quite some time, but have fortunately avoided any contact with Sasquatch during my many outdoor expeditions. A YouTube user posted video of a supposed Bigfoot sighting in Utah, igniting quite a fury of speculation on the web. Some people are even saying they can see in the blurry video, with the creature obscured by quite a few trees, a baby in the Bigfoot's arms.

What I have always wanted to know is why people who take Bigfoot videos (or videos of other cryptids, for that matter) all don't know how to use their focus correctly and can't hold a camera steady worth anything. It reminds me of the time I was looking to buy a car, and met with a guy who had a beautiful black car for sale. Rather than washing it up, the guy left it with rain spots all over the car, making up some stupid story of his neighbor's sprinklers getting the car and he didn't have time to wash it up. Upon closer examination, I found the car had quite a few dings and scratches, but the dirt on the car made them very hard to see. Bad video techniques can help obscure the fact a supposed Bigfoot walks too much like a human and is wearing a cheap gorilla suit.

Perhaps the most hilarious thing about this video is the structure the cameraman and his buddy find at the end. It looks almost exactly like the structure I was taught to make in Scouts so many years ago. Take a look for yourself:

I also love how the guy who posted the video says he has more footage that is unedited, but has kept it off YouTube at the advice of a friend who knows a lot about Bigfoot research. I guess posting the rest of the video, unedited, would be too much for the faint-hearted public.

The China and UFO Connection

Aliens seem to think there is something extra-special about China, especially Chinese airports. Perhaps these extraterrestrials are in search of cheap parts to fix their flying saucers, or is something more sinister going down in Asia?

Last Thursday flights were canceled or diverted from yet another Chinese airport, as reported by the Shanghai Daily. This is not the first time a UFO sighting near a Chinese airport has disrupted air traffic. The incident occurred at Jiangbei International Airport located in the Chinese city of Chongqing in the southwestern part of the country.

The unidentified flying object stuck around the airport's airspace for about 50 minutes before disappearing from view. Some airport workers told the Shanghai Daily that they believed the object was a Chinese lantern or a balloon.

Are these UFO sightings over Chinese airports connected. Is China testing out experimental craft, or is another country testing experimental craft over Chinese airspace? Perhaps aliens find a fascination or a connection with the Chinese. Whatever the connection is, it seems that UFO sightings in China will continue, shutting down airports and attracting international attention.

People Who Believe in Paranormal Not Crazy

It's official: officials are now saying that people who believe in the paranormal are not all necessarily crazy, despite what George Clooney may think. We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. Voice of America recently reported that over two thirds of the United States' population believes in the existence of the paranormal, ranging from ghosts to aliens and also cryptids (or animals that have yet to be officially discovered such as El Chupacabra or Bigfoot).

Academics interviewed by Voice of America actually asserted that the average person who believes in the paranormal is well-adjusted and a contributing member of society. Some interesting observations as well: men tend to believe in the existence of aliens more than women, while women tend to believe more in spiritual paranormal phenomena than men.

As far as religion's role in people's belief in the paranormal, the article claims that those who come from mainstream religions find more tolerance for their beliefs versus those who come from stricter religious groups. Some religious people even go so far as to claim that the paranormal is part of a plot by the devil to lead people away from God.

So apparently those of us who study the paranormal in the closet may find more acceptance in coming out, since many of those we interact with on a daily basis share our interests and beliefs.
