In the 1950s and early 1960s, our world experienced an increase in ufo sightings. This was also the early era of free love and new age spirituality hitting the United States. Our world was just coming out of the threat of nuclear war. Some individuals found an opportunity to feed their ego with what was popular at the time, and using the anxiety and fear of humanity to their advantage. The mystery of Roswell and the new age hippy movement combined formed a new type of cult and religion. A new type of god. A new leader to bring this message to you. The spirituality and new age movement was able to allow these leaders to cherry pick whatever fit their hearts desire. Using the mystery of extraterrestrials to their advantage. This formula is still in use today and transcends faster and further than ever with the internet at our fingertips. Although Marshall applewhite of heavens gate was the first to utilize and popularize the internet for spreading his message - he sure isn’t the last. Today there are many ufo new age cults using the internet to spread their message. The new age ufo cults present themselves as unique and the correct way to live your life. With the right answers. Many of these leaders profess to be the only channel to have access to this information from the extraterrestrial gods. Bringing you new and exciting information. And sometimes - to warn you to get your life right because destruction is right around the corner. Unfortunately what many of the followers in the cults don’t realize is this blend has been around since the 1950s And many of this channeled information to their leader/guru is nothing new. In fact - a lot of the channeled information is very similar. I’m going to present to you 5 ufo cults and religions - the atherian society, heavens gate, the universe people, the unarian society and the sphere being alliance - 5 ufo cults that are very similar in their thinking, rhetoric and propaganda. Some of these groups do not seem to present any danger and have no bad reputation to speak of. Others.. not so much. So my question to you is - if all of these cults spread the same message, but profess to be the only channel, who is telling the truth? And would they all be considered cults or religions if one is considered a cult or religion? What makes one different from the other? And should we be worried?
