Traditional Catholic Benedictine Monk for over 15 years, Brother Michael Dimond discussed his belief that UFOs/aliens are demonic spiritual entities. UFOs are reported to appear and disappear, change color and shape, and seem like they are alive. These are characteristics of non-material or spiritual phenomena rather than inanimate physical objects, he suggested. Further, he said the idea that ETs travel such vast distances to get to Earth doesn't make sense.
The demons' masquerade as UFOs/aliens, he said, as part of the devil's plan to deceive humankind and cause them to lose faith in the "one true religion," which he named as Catholicism. Dimond believes we're in the final phase of the "Last Days," and witnessing the demonic deception of "signs and wonders" prophecied in the Bible. He cited a 1947 incident in which Jack Parsons allegedly conducted a Satanic ritual at the future site of Area 51. An interdimensional gateway that allowed evil entities to come through was said to be opened. Since that time, UFOs have proliferated, Dimond noted.
Cases of alien abduction are actually demonic visitations, he observed. Dimond described his own encounters with demons in which he suffered invisible attacks and heard sounds of the "devil's activity" including chains, crashing, and growling.
First hour guest, author Dannion Brinkley talked about issues related to veterans and their health struggles. More veterans have comitted suicide than have died in wars, and the government can't explain why, he noted.
George Noory continued his Memorial Day tradition with his reading of the poem A Soldier Died Today credited to A. Lawrence Vaincourt:
On May 24, thousands of Rio de Janeiro residents saw a flying saucer appear in the sky over Copacabana beach. The craft, however, was of terrestrial origin-- a design by artist Peter Coffin. The brightly lit disc was actually pulled in the sky by a helicopter. Watch a video of the event here. The artist staged a similar project in Gdansk, Poland in 2008.
