George Adamski, A Herald for the Space Brothers
Over the next three or even four podcasts, we will be delving into the subject of UFOs, our Space Brothers who pilot them and the people who have alerted us to their presence despite the general public’s ridicule.
We’ll start with an article by Gerard Aartsen entitled: “George Adamski – a herald for the Space Brothers” which appeared in the October 2008 edition of Share International magazine.
Gerard Aartsen (who has a Master’s Degree in Education) is an author, researcher, teacher and Share International co-worker based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He begins his article with a quote by Adamski…
“It was about 12.30 in the noon hour on Thursday the 20th of November 1952, that I first made personal contact with a man from another world. He came to Earth in his spacecraft, a flying saucer. He called it a Scout Ship.”
No lines in any of the multitude of books that have been written about UFO encounters are more famous or more disputed. They are the first lines of the chapter in “Flying Saucers Have Landed” in which George Adamski relates his meeting with “a human being from another world” near Desert Center, Arizona. Adamski’s claims were substantiated by six witnesses, who were with him that day and who signed affidavits sworn before notaries public.
Benjamin Creme, in the preface to his first book, The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom, states that Adamski’s descriptions of the Space Brothers are very accurate, and that, from his own experience, he could “vouch for the authenticity of his contacts”.
Flying Saucers Have Landed became an overnight sensation when it was published simultaneously in the UK and the USA in September 1953: by December of that year it had been reprinted six times, and in the USA its 12th reprint took place three years later. It was followed in 1955 by Adamski’s personal account of his experience inside a mothership manned by Masters from Venus, titled “Inside the Space Ships.”
Although much has been written about him since he published his personal experiences, very little of it involved much open-mindedness, and even today the internet is rife with malicious theories, accusations, derogative comments, half-truths and lies about the person who is considered to be the first modern ‘contactee’ of Space Brothers.
