Do You Believe?
The second week of August brought a few surprising articles to the GDN... two sets of ppl saw what they believed to be a UFO in the skies above Bahrain.
Then, I guess, about three or so days later, someone wrote into the 'letters' section of the GDN saying that she had also seen another or the same UFO above the Tree of Life.
The pictures above were taken by one couple who saw the UFO as they were driving their car along the Sitra Causeway on August 9th. Another guy came forward the next day and said he saw a UFO above the Bahrain Financial Harbour as he was driving home from work. He told friends but everyone dismissed it.
Leading experts in Bahrain are dismissing the claims of a UFO and say that there is a reasonable explanation for what they saw, altho none is given.
I, for one, do somewhat believe in UFOs. My mother, a couple of her sisters, my older sister and some of my older cousins saw a UFO some 40 odd years ago in Indiana. They were outside and one flew above the trees while they were visiting either my aunt or grandmother in the country. It hovered there for several seconds and then flew away faster than you can blink your eye. My mom said there was a definite sound, lights that would go on and off, and it's something she'll never forget.
I'm a huge fan - or rather used to be - of The X-Files and I love alien types of movies. I especially liked The Arrival w/ Charlie Sheen, I loved Signs w/ Mel Gibson, and we watched The Forgotten lastnight w/ Julianne Moore, and it was actually pretty good. I'm also a fan of the different series that have been on TV like Taken and such.
There was a book that I was reading years ago about alien abduction and it was so frightening that I had to stop reading it. When I moved to Bahrain, I got rid of that book and now wish I hadn't. I tried looking for it on amazon.com but couldn't find it, so I won't be able to tell ya the name of it... but the book disturbed me in a big way. I found myself being afraid to fall asleep at night and such or being afraid of being taken by aliens. I've always been fascinated, and somewhat scared, w/ the possibility of such things, and, actually, I worked w/ a lady whose husband truly believed he had been abducted by aliens and even had marks on his body to prove it. He's a very smart man, worked for some major newspapers in Dallas and also worked for several TV stations, and when it came to aliens, he was a true believer.
The movie Signs really spooked me out because it was believeable, I thought. The story behind the crop circles that appear in the U.S. and in Europe is something I've heard before and sorta believe, it was spiritual in a sense, and kinda freaky when it came to the aliens... but freaky in a scary way. The movie w/ Charlie Sheen, The Arrival, gave me the same type of feeling. It was more over the top but I liked it. There were things in that movie that were very believable but things that were also really out there and crazy. But I liked the whole setting taking place in Mexico and such and really liked how the story developed.
You know, the whole Scientology thing is about aliens. I don't believe in Scientology and don't know that much about it - other than what I've read online - but I do know they believe that we all came from aliens.
Who knows what was in the skies above Bahrain back on August 9th.... maybe they were spy planes or even flying saucers built for spying - it's been thought and talked about for years in the U.S.... but I do believe something was in the sky that night. Maybe, indeed, they were aliens checking out this little country of Bahrain. Do you think?!! ;)
