so-called "Stargate Project" is a developing investigation into the connection
between the earth and what the Project members call "the Cosmic Matriarchies."
Allegedly, the Sisterhood involves our planet (earth, for you ufonuts),
the Pleiades star system and the star Sirius (the "dog star").
According to the members, the planet earth was visited and enriched by
this Sisterhood as they communicated with the people of the ancient world.
According to the site, they have supposedly made "connections
between ancient Ireland, the ancient Dravidian culture of India, the Matriarchies,
Tantra, the Pleiades."
This wonderful new discovery was made through analysis of "an
ancient depiction of a cosmic-portal painted at the entry to a cave containing
one of the most ancient representations of the constellation known as the
The director of this project
is a man named Mark Roberts, a retired television director. There
is no doubt that Mr. Roberts is an intelligent, well-read man. What
comes into question is his objectivity and, some may say, his sanity.
Exhibit A: (quotes
"I had two contacts with Grays
in my formative years, contacts with unique twists."
"I had no love for the restrictions
of academically-linked archaeology."
What other kinds of archaeology
are there? What we take this to mean is that Mr. Roberts has had
no academic training in archaeology. Perhaps the "academics" that
he wished to avoid were the parts about objectivity and the scientific
method. Just a thought.
"Of course, the book, The Quest
for Stargate contains even more details ~ and more important, about the
research, not the trivias of my extended life."
Ahh, so we see his true
colors. One of the fundamental parts of UFOlogy and so-called "spiritual
studies" is a fervent belief in mercantilism, as we have seen in the past.
There is also an open
call to be a member of the "research team." One way of garnering
members is by encouraging people to take the "Starseed
Quiz," an online test that supposedly determines whether or not the
test-taker has "alien genes." Some of the more pertinent questions
Do you enjoy being alone?
Do you occasionally (or, more often)
sleep in the nude?
Have you noted an unexplainable
attraction to certain people?
Do certain places create a strong
sensitivity for you?
Do you believe in the natural superiority
and, what has to be the
real determining factor on whether or not you're an alien:
Do you like tapioca?
Our Editor took the test
and scored a 75. According to the results table:
You will be, or have been, contacted
~ do not be afraid -- it was for a family reunion.
Obviously, the scientific
merit of this "Quest" is dubious at best, laughably inept at worst.
You can probably guess which side we're leaning toward.
