Files #29 (July 14, 2010):
John Keel remembered
John Keel was a prominent American ufologist and the author of The Mothman Prophecies (1975), a book about paranormal phenomena which
was made into a successful film starring Richard Gere.
One of ufology’s most widely read and influential authors, Keel
became an original and controversial researcher, and is credited
with coining the term “MIB” (Men In Black), sinister and
threatening entities who assume human form to confront ufologists
and UFO witnesses.
Of particular importance was Keel’s analysis of patterns. His work
on “windows” (specific hot spots of combined phenomenal
appearances), “waves” (cyclic appearances of the phenomena) and
the “Wednesday phenomenon” (the theory that a disproportionate
number of UFO events occur on that day of the week) influenced
scholars and followers of the genre alike.
He commenced a full-time investigation of UFOs and paranormal
phenomena and read over 2,000 books, and interviewed thousands of
people in over 20 U.S. states.
He read newspaper-clipping services, which often generated up to
150 clippings for a single day during the 1966 and 1967 UFO
“wave.” Keel wrote for several magazines, including Saga with one
1967 article, “UFO Agents of Terror,” referring to the Men in
Black. Keel died on July 3, 2009, at age 79.
However, after one year of investigations, Keel concluded that the
extraterrestrial hypothesis was untenable. Indeed, both Hynek and
Vallée eventually arrived at a similar conclusion. As Keel himself
wrote, “I abandoned the extraterrestrial hypothesis in 1967 when
my own field investigations disclosed an astonishing overlap
between psychic phenomena and UFOs... The objects and apparitions
do not necessarily originate on another planet and may not even
exist as permanent constructions of matter. It is more likely that
we see what we want to see and interpret such visions according to
our contemporary beliefs.”
In UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse, Keel argues that a non-human or
spiritual intelligence has staged whole events over a long period
of time in order to propagate and reinforce certain erroneous
belief systems. For example, the fairy faith in Europe, vampire
legends, mystery airships in 1897, mystery aeroplanes of the
1930s, anomalous creature sightings, poltergeist phenomena, balls
of light, and UFOs.
In Our Haunted Planet, Keel discussed the seldom-considered
possibility that the alien “visitors” to Earth are not visitors at
all, but an advanced Earth civilization, which may or may not be

Note from George Filer: I spoke with John Keel and asked, “What
are UFOs all about?” He told me after years of study, “I have
concluded it is the devil and his demons.”
Illinois depiction of orbs
NORTHLAKE, Ill. — “On July 23, 2010, I was walking to Walgreens
with my wife and my 6-year-old son. As we were walking and passed
beside the new Northlake Police Station, I glanced up and saw this
strange formation. I said, ‘What is that?’ My wife and son looked
up and we saw a group of six sphere-like objects in the sky, in a
loose formation, but were also kind of spinning around each other.
We stopped walking and took note of this group of objects as they
were traveling about 60 feet above the treetops. My son was very
excited about the sighting and exclaimed they seemed to be
illuminated, to which my wife concurred.
“They were traveling against the wind and were illuminated
by both the sun and the objects themselves. They eventually
disappeared behind some trees and houses. I tried to get photos of
the objects or video, using my cell phone, so this is a depiction
of what we observed on location.”
