This is fascinating OP! Quoting: Watching the world
Thanks for posting.
One question - the vatican wanted to keep this secret because?....
The Vatican hardly kept this a secret...In my viewing of all the magnificent Vatican art it seemed obvious someone sat down and told the artist to put this or that in...in some religious art, like the annunciation and birth of Christ one even can see an obvious ufo in the background. Even in the stones singing from every cathedral in Europe is a pattern and deeper meaning.
Just as early Catholics in Europe could not read, the Bible was read to them at every Mass, and the churches themselves were "illustrated" with stories and teachings in glass and stone. Its all there if you look.
The Vatican also allows anyone to study the millions of pages from thousands of years of writings all meticulously preserved. Scholars from all denominations can do so.
Lastly, years ago the Vatican built a world class observatory in Los Alamos to await the meteor foretold in prophecy...and other things. They have alot of quite interesting info on UFOs and aliens in the library and are quite open about their exsistance.
When the Jesuits were told by our medicine people we were from the Plieades (and not the stupid land bridge: Our blood types and language are more like Basque and nothing like asian/russian, for one thing), they thought nothing of that being unusual...
