THE ALIEN BASE AT POINT DUME
Special effects wizards can create on a computer grid, creatures that once occupied our darkest nightmares from dinosaurs to slimy tentacled aliens with acidic blood and gnashing teeth.
Ufology lends itself to a variety of theories and that no theory is absolute because it is based primarily on data that is vague. It is vague not because of the evidence in hand but because the casual observer in most cases is not planning on witnessing an event as sporadic as a UFO or supernatural occurrence.
The literature available about UFO’s is abundant and the obsession of such topics is evident as we see many people cash in on every new age philosophy and whim. The trouble is that the faith in UFO’s and their oogly alien pilots may be premature when you consider that we have thrown all logic off kilter and anthropomorphized many aspects of the possibility of life forms outside of earth.
We are also fixated on the idea that aliens and or UFOs come from outer space when of course there may be a number of these alien craft that may be coming from our oceans and Great lakes.
It is also important to acknowledge the possibility of nature and its ability to continually surprise us with new data and new life that we have overlooked. It is far too tempting to engage in flights of fancy when investigating these miraculous sightings.
Back in 2003 it was reported that scientists probing the Earth’s interior found a large reservoir of water equal to the volume of the Arctic Ocean beneath eastern Asia. Just last week Scientists again have reports that they are finding out more about what is under the earth’s mantle and what they are finding is more underground ocean located 400 miles beneath Earth’s crust
The ocean however is not something that we are familiar with. When we think of ocean water we think of liquid and the typical consistency of ocean water.
This body of water is locked up in a blue mineral called Ringwoodite that lies in the transition zone of hot rock between Earth’s surface and core. Interestingly, this water is not in a form familiar to us it’s neither liquid, ice nor vapor.
Ringwoodite is the reason this new water us hidden. Its crystal-like structure makes it act like a sponge and draw in hydrogen and trap water.
The new findings may also explain why some earthquakes we experience have a rolling or wavy motion as if water is just below us moving the earth.
This has also sparked even more dialogue about the possibility that the aliens we hear about aren’t really extra-terrestrials, but denizens of the deep waters and that they have their bases underwater or on many of the uncharted islands here on earth.
When I was a guest for the television show “Return to the Bermuda Triangle” I had the opportunity to talk with many people that wanted to remind me that much of what is reported about the Bermuda Triangle is natural phenomena, however there also seem to be all sorts of reports of Unidentified Flying objects and Unidentified Submerged Objects.
There was also buzz about the naval equivalent of Area 51 known as AUTEC, The Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center. AUTEC is located at Andros Island right in the middle of the Bermuda triangle. While Naval personnel are open about some things at the facility, the adamantly say that there are no USO’s or UFO’s there. However sometimes when you bring up AUTEC and USO’s and government cover ups some people don’t like it.
I took an opportunity to interview Maximillien de Lafayette author UFO-USO and Extraterrestrials of the Sea: Flying Saucers And Aliens Civilizations, Life And Bases Underwater during the time there was speculation of a possible UFO that was underwater in the Baltic.
I grilled him on the UFO sightings that were documented during NATO maneuvers in 1952 over the Baltic Sea and their connection to the possible Nazi saucers and the Admiral Byrd reports of underwater bases in the Antarctic from 1947.
On 5 March, 1947 the “El Mercurio” newspaper of Santiago, Chile, had a headline article “On Board the Mount Olympus on the High Seas” which quoted Byrd in an interview with Lee van Atta:
“Adm. Byrd declared today that it was imperative for the United States to initiate immediate defense measures against hostile regions. Furthermore, Byrd stated that he “didn’t want to frighten anyone unduly” but that it was “a bitter reality that in case of a new war the continental United States would be attacked by flying objects which could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds”.
When I brought up these key stories about Operation Mainbrace and Admiral Byrd’s operation High Jump, Lafayette abruptly cancelled the interview telling me that I should know why he had to leave and to let my imagination fill in the rest. I was left wondering if he was told by someone or by e-mail that the interview got into territory that he could not touch.
Many stories have been buried regarding UFO’s and their relationship to the sea. Their emergence from the liquid medium has gone relatively ignored yet most UFO sightings happen over bodies of water. They descend from the sky and plunge into the sea or the inland lake. This raises the question “Do aliens find refuge in our seas?”
Recently there have been scores of sightings on pacific coast of California. Last January there were so many sightings from Marysville California to Malibu that Peter Davenport from the National UFO reporting center phoned me and told me that they were disrupting power in some areas and cell phone service.
The coast has been experiencing a flap of UFO reports and even the mainstream news has been paying attention to what is happening.
On June 20th KABC Channel 7 news in California filed a story about strange lights seen over Malibu and connected it with a story that was actually first reported by Jimmy church of the “Fade to Black” radio show.
The Huffington post reported a few weeks earlier about the possibility of a hidden alien structure below the ocean 6 miles of the coast of Point Dume in Malibu California. It is an unusual looking structure that sits on the seabed floor.
It appears to be an the oval-shaped object that has a huge flat top and what appear to be pillars or columns that seem to reveal the entrance to a darker, inner place.
The anomaly is approximately 2,000 feet below the surface of the water, measuring nearly 3 miles wide.
Jimmy Church the host of Fade To Black on Art Bell’s former Dark Matter Radio Network, reported that one of his listeners someone named Maxwell contacted him last month with a Google Earth image showing something odd, underwater off the coast of Malibu. Church then asked graphic designer Dale Romero to capture as many angled images of the anomaly as he could.
The anomaly can be found by using Google earth coordinates 34° 1’23.31″N 118° 59’45.64″W.
Geologists of course are not calling it a UFO base and of course there isn’t a sign hanging off of it that declares that it is. Only that in 2009 the anomaly did catch the attention of Geologists and they called it the Sycamore Knoll. Geologists believe that it is a thrust fault and while it is 2000 feet below the surface they aren’t about to go down and prove that it is either a natural phenomenon or artificial.
However the pillars and the entrance below is a compelling geological anomaly that can’t easily be explained nor can he UFO activity that has been happening near Santa Barbara and strange lights over Venice beach.
The UFO activity may just be a coincidence and there have been many fireballs that are seen that are mistaken for UFO’s
However if you do a little research you will find the entire area near Point Dume.
Preston Dennett a MUFON field investigator states that when he began investigating the area in the 1980’s he was getting all sorts of information about sightings in the area.
According to Dennett :
Most of these reports came from a certain stretch of California coastline, from about Santa Barbara south to Long Beach. This particular body of water, I soon learned, had a widespread reputation as a UFO hotspot. After several witnesses told me they believed there was an underwater UFO base there, I decided to conduct a more in-depth investigation to determine the truth. My first step was to survey the research of other prominent investigators. To my surprise, most of the local researchers were already aware of the sightings.Writes Ann Druffel:
“This body of water lies between the coastlines of Southern California and Santa Catalina Island, 20 miles offshore to the southwest. The area has for at least thirty years been the scene of UFO reports of all kinds: surface sightings of hazy craft which cruise leisurely in full view of military installations, aerial spheres bobbing in oscillating flight, gigantic cloud-cigars, and at least one report of an underwater UFO with uniformed occupants.”Another researcher, Robert Stanley, editor of the now defunct magazine Unicus, writes,
“Even in the sixties, families were going down to the beach and waiting for a UFO to pass by…. By the 1970s, whole families were going down to the beach at Point Dume at night to watch the multi-colored UFOs [that] would sink under the water at times.”MUFON field investigator Bill Hamilton writes,
“For years witnesses have seen many types of UFO cruising off the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Southern California. UFOs have actually been seen to come out of the water in the San Pedro Channel.”I had already uncovered several firsthand cases myself. My next step was to put together a comprehensive list of all the recorded ocean-going encounters in the area.
Dennet came up with more than 50 sighting in the area during his time with MUFON, which begs the question could there be an alien base near Point Dume?
Jimmy Church says that investigation will continue.
