Main Line UFO conference ponders extraterrestrial theories

Posted: July 17, 2011

While many area residents were enjoying sunny skies, about 50 people holed up in the Tredyffrin Township library Saturday to ponder theories about visitors from well beyond those skies.

Main Line MUFON (Mutual UFO Network), a division of an international nonprofit dedicated to the study of unidentified flying objects, held a free, daylong conference at the library.

Topics ranged from Sasquatch to "Credible and Convincing Evidence for the Existence of UFOs." Some participants wore MUFON T-shirts that said: "Others talk, we investigate."

One of the five speakers, Denis Denocla, said he had traveled from France to discuss his research on the Ummo people, a civilization that, he said, was likely from the Milky Way and sent letters decades ago to scientists around the world.

Denocla, author of the book Presence: UFOs, Crop Circles, and Exocivilizations, said the return addresses on the envelopes had been those of other Earth scientists, who claimed they had never sent the letters. The letters contained information that was well ahead of its time, such as the formation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and stem-cell research, he said.

"I'll let you have your own opinion of those letters," Denocla said.

For anyone clamoring for further discussion about the unfathomable, Main Line MUFON holds monthly events; for more information, visit www.mainlinemufon.com
