Did you know that George Bush, Al Gore, Dick Cheney, and Barack Obama are all related? Did you know that the power elite controlling the world today can trace their ancestry back to the Sky Gods of the ancient past? Did you know our moon was placed in orbit millennia ago and came from somewhere deep in space?

We are all familiar with angels. In churches, we see them in stained-glass windows, sculpted as statues, and painted on altarpieces. We find them on greeting cards, on the tops of Christmas trees, and we even dress up children to look like them. Indeed, in our imagination they look positively human, with the exception that, unlike us, they have wings. Is any of this true, and if it is, might "angel" simply be a name for an extraterrestrial?
The Nazi party was obsessed with the occult. They scoured the globe in search of mysterious forces that would enable them to build their 1,000 year Reich. From the Holy Grail to the lance that pierced the side of Christ, from Tibet to the Antarctic, no region or mythological device was ignored. In fact, they turned the planet inside out looking for something ancient. Something the Nazi elite called "the most powerful weapon" - a weapon that would instill such awe, that it would cause the entire world to surrender overnight.

Thousands of years ago, a special, genetically advanced race of beings came to Earth. They were seen as Gods by primitive man and worshipped.

Civilization emerged with writing, art, science, mathematics, geometry, engineering, architecture, and more and spread around the globe.
We are told the moon has been here since before the dawn of man and is either a part of the Earth itself or a vagabond captured by our world eons ago. But is this true? There are many theories for the existence of the moon, but all have been proven wrong. The moon is far older than previously acknowledged by science, quite possibly older than the Earth or the sun. Our moon is not a solid object; it is indeed hollow and is the only moon in the solar system that has a stationary, near-perfect circular orbit.
In 1561 the skies above Nuremberg, Germany, were lit up by an incredible sight. Thousands of people witnessed what they called a battle in the sky.

Around the world, and throughout time, thousands of people have witnessed the most extraordinary UFO phenomenon.
We live in a world where people feel escape is their only alternative. Housewives who feel they are overwhelmed with raising children, workers who feel they are powerless and cannot get ahead, people feeling trapped, paralyzed, and unbalanced in their daily lives.

Some say they are descendants of God himself via his son, Jesus, and Jesus' wife, Mary Magdalene.
