Nation of Islam: UFOs are real, can destroy the world
Dennis Bodzash|The Examiner
When thinking about the ever-controversial topic of UFOs, one does not immediately think of the equally controversial Nation of Islam, yet, it just so happens that one of the Nation’s core beliefs could involve unidentified flying objects. Last weekend, at the Nation’s Saviors’ Day conference, Louis Farrakhan addressed many topics, including global politics, health, natural disasters, and UFOs.
Yes, the Nation of Islam has a deeply-rooted interest in UFOs.
As a core belief, the Nation believes that there is a massive airship in the sky that they refer to as “the Mother Plane” or simply “the Wheel” and that the government is trying to keep its existence hidden from the general public. THe nation also believes that the Mother Plane is extremely powerful and could destroy the entire world. In 1985, or so he says, Farrakhan ascended into the Wheel where he heard the voice of previous Nation leader Elijah Muhammad speak to him.
While this theory of the Mother Plane may seem outrageous to people of more mainstream religious beliefs, the Nation points to the Old Testament book of Ezekiel which, according to some, offers the world’s first detailed account of visitation by aliens. Yes, to read Ezekiel, all one has to do is look in a Bible, the cornerstone of the Christian religion.
