UFOs in Art? – A Deceptive Imitation of the Sacred
One of the most repeated fallacies in Ufology is that UFO shapes appeared in the European sacred art of the middle ages and renaissance. Some claim that people saw UFOs in those times and then interpreted them in their sacred art. Unfortunately some otherwise well-informed researchers hold this incorrect view. Such views show a fundamental misunderstanding of the common symbols common in European art.
Italian Art Historian Diego Cuoghi took this fallacy head on in his exhaustive article. Guoghi identified the shapes misidentified as UFOs as standard artistic elements with a commonly understood meaning by artists and patrons alike. In many cases, such as the aerial circular shapes in art, these elements are so common as to be incorporated as part of the cupola in cathedrals.
It is true the sacred shapes in art do bear a strong resemblance to shapes seen in the sky. It is to the point UFOs are even replicating such universally recognized sacred shapes such as the cross. This demonstrates a clear trend of the unexplained UFOs manifestation that often use traditional shapes regarded as sacred by Christians to manifest. This deceptive multi-dimensional theater of the sacred was demonstrated in Fatima, Portugal in 1917. Three children were visited by a small framed humanoid apparition claiming to be the Virgin Mary. This being promised to send a sign. Word spread across the war ravaged region and over 70,000 people assembled in the Fatima town center to witness a flying disc fly from the direction of the sun, zigzag in a classic UFO manner, and send multicolored lights that were felt as a drying heat. (refer to Heavenly Lights: The Apparitions of Fatima and the UFO Phenomenon by Joaquim Fernandes , Fina D’Armada).
Sowing seeds of confusion is the M.O. of the fallen angelic realm, whose purpose is to undermine belief in the one and true God. This is part of a path of deception to dilute belief in God by using the spiritual symbols.
