It’s been a running theme in recent days that even in an ever growing world of strange events, things would come about that would look even stranger. And yet rarely does something that is so paralyzing and so bizarre, yet so apparently noteworthy reaches us that it seems to bear mentioning almost immediately even as the facts are still coming out. If this latest claim by Aaron McCollum is any indicator of the coming year, we’re in for a wild ride. This is a story of aliens, a new rapture, and a mysterious organization that claims it will help “enlighten” the world. And this individual says not everything is as it seems.
The Festival of Enlightenment is an event that will be taking place at Colorado Springs on June 13th through the 19th of this year in Evergreen, Colorado. The event will host speakers and musicians who will talk about general subjects of self improvement and enlightenment of the coming new age. It’s not clear what precisely the message of the program is just by perusing the festival’s website beyond that, but it does bear the motifs that appear generally positive. People of all cultures holding hands, smiling families, people holding plants, and a sun shining on a new ecologically stable world appear to depict a festival that could eventually become the Woodstock of the coming century. And with a harsh economic climate, war, and the world looking for hope from its most active participants it’s hard to argue with its message. But one man claiming to be a whistle blower on the event claims that things are not as they seem. And his claim only adds to the mystery of just what this festival could possibly be.
Aaron McCollum has said that he was in close email contact with festival organizers who were themselves in contact with Bill Moore, an organizer of the event. He says in a personal email with Moore he was asked to do video seminars over the web with a group known as the “star seed children.” If the name sounds a bit weird, hold on to your hats. This is one conspiracy theory that virtually guarantees vindication by June of this year. He says that these specially selected children would receive instructions from him and then arrange themselves in a circle during a ceremony. I don’t know how much the families of these children are paying, but at several hundred dollars a ticket for a ringside seat, it’s no small amount in this economy. After a ceremony in front of a small armada of cloaked ships, according to McCollum’s email, something tremendously powerful will happen. Moore’s associates said several Pleaidean ships would materialize in the vicinity and an “ascension” would take place. According to McCollum in his interview with UFOlogist Alfred Webre, the point of this is clear: a sort of extraterrestrial rapture could be taking place in the next few months.
If you just reread the last line a couple of times to make sure you got it right, you’re in good company. After hearing the claim made by McCollum I found myself reading and rereading it several times and then watching an interview hosted on youtube with exopolitics examiner Alfred Webre. An alien rapture? In front of 50,000 people? McCollum says he smells a rat, and I can’t say something about this doesn’t seem a bit off. But what?
It calls to mind the Fatima event of May 13th in 1917. The miracle of the sun was witnessed in front of thousands including skeptics and for years was considered one of the most unexplained events to ever transpire on Earth in front of so many. And now it seems a group of children have been specially groomed for a sequel, this one involving a race of aliens taking them possibly off-world. Who are these people? Why were they selected? What will happen on June 13th-19th this year in Evergreen Colorado? At the Fatima event I don’t remember anyone selling tickets. The details of this conspiracy theory have only recently come about, and I’m still unsure of what conclusions to draw about it. But whether the Festival of Ascension is being unnecessarily targeted due to an email conversation or something strange really is going on, the whole thing is going to get much more scrutiny due to McCollum’s claim.
Note: Previously I said McCollum was in contact with Moore himself, but it has since been brought to my attention that this was not the case. In fact, McCollum said he had not spoken to Moore himself, but rather other organizers of the event working with Moore.
