From noted author and UFOlogist John Keel, Operation Trojan Horse p. 215, 216: "Throughout most of history, the manifestations of demonology and demonopathy have been viewed from a religious perspective and explained as the work of the Devil.The bizarre manipulation and ill effects described in the demonological literature are usually regarded as the results of a great unseen conflict between God and the Devil. In UFO lore, the same conflict has been observed and the believers have explained it as a space war between the "Guardians" (good guys from outer space), who are protecting our planet, and some evil extraterrestrial race. The manifestations are the same, only the referenceis different. Did ancient man misinterpret UFO manifestations by placing them in religious context?
Center for Sacred Sciences Our answer to these questions is yes. Thus, our mission has three corresponding goals: Shared Mystical Truth. Although the world's great religious traditions have obvious outer (or exoteric) differences, one of our goals is to demonstrate that they also share an inner (or esoteric) Truth testified to by their mystics. New Sacred Worldview.We are also working to lay the foundations for a new worldview in which the Truth realized by the mystics and the truths of modern science can be seen as compatible ways of understanding the same underlying Reality.

Mission of the International Order of Gnostic Templars A Five-Point Plan to Create a One-World Spirituality At the time of the original Knights Templar the world was not ready for the synthesis of east-west spirituality that they created. Their subsequent downfall and suppression was at least partly precipitated by their synthesized "heretical" doctrines and rites. The International Order of Gnostic Templars
By Phillip D. Collins ©, Jan. 8th, 2014 I Corinthians 2: 14-15 establishes a binary opposition that defines the modern historical struggle in which man finds himself mortally locked. This passage of Scripture, as it is translated in the amplified version of the Bible, reads: “But the natural, nonspiritual man does not accept or welcome or admit into his heart the gifts and teachings and revelations of the Spirit of God, for they are folly (meaningless nonsense) to him; and he is incapable of knowing them [of progressively recognizing, understanding, and becoming better acquainted with them] because they are spiritually discerned and estimated and appreciated. But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things], yet is himself to be put on trial and judged by no one [he can read the meaning of everything, but no one can properly discern or appraise or get an insight into him].”
Since ancient times, sacred sites have had a mysterious allure for billions of people around the world. Legends and contemporary reports tell of extraordinary experiences people have had while visiting these places. Different sacred sites have the power to heal the body, enlighten the mind and inspire the heart. What is the key to the mystery of the sacred sites and how are we to explain their power? Anthropologist Martin Gray has spent thirty years studying and photographing hundreds of sacred sites in more than one hundred and twenty-five countries.
