Mythology, especially the Greek , Roman and Norse, offer us what’s long been assumed to be heroic tales meant more to inspire than educate. They are thought to be part of man’s need to answer the mysteries around him and to assign them a point of origin, as well as a religious context.Odin locked in Combat with the Fenris Wolf

But what if  something akin to  the face of Zeus,  did peer down on mortal men ?

Were lizards of large size and terrible countenance ever encountered?

Fisherman have been pulling the rotting corpses of large unidentified beasts from the water, and they have washed up on shores for ages. If we allow for the possibility of Nessie, in our age,  could not possibly many creatures still  have been  in existence in the the times the Greeks wrote of the Hydra, and the Norse wrote of  Fafnir the dragon?







Those mediterranean waters and the yearly climate there  could easily have supported a creature used to roughly similar prehistoric waters, and if the dinosaurs were destroyed in the fall of one or many rocks that signaled their end, the vast underground complex water ways would, I guess, have given  shelter, from either a firery death above or a slow death, as a subsequent climate change might bring.

details hopefully more visible in this black and white versionWhat if the authors of those tales of Zeus’s interaction with men and his coupling with women were not myths but a misinterpretations? What if a god-like being did  change form to a hapless, human woman, one who, in her altered state, saw a Swan and not a man, an intentional device of the being to calm her, his face seen among clouds, a massive forehead and brows over an angry countenance,  among the thunderheads, or flashes of lightening, his tools of wrath.

Apollo in his chariot, racing across the the sky, the obvious UFO sightings of craft of all descriptions comes to mind, or Artemis and her owl, a creature associated with the  abduction phenomena. Dionysos was, as well, as the god of wine and the god of ritual madness,  often  accompanied or seen in the company of a Satyr .

This could reflect the men-beast phenomena known as big foot. The Norse Gods were just as convincing, Odin the grim and wise among the clouds and Thor who rocked the heavens with the play of his hammer and his rage.  And what, interestingly enough, about the Rainbow Bridge?  A dimensional doorway or path ?   The Bible tells us a list of other supposed Gods. We are never told there, that there are none, but, we are directed to the one we are supposed to worship.

I believe in Christ and God, but maybe these hints in the Bible are not just directives of belief, but a sort of heads up to other forces at work in our world, less welcomed, but still having an influence on mankind. My point of this article is not suggesting  you should be worshiping a very real Zeus or Odin,  but merely to show a possible connection between the events of the lore of Ufology and the myths of the past. A  swan cavorting sexually with a nymph or human maiden, may seem a little  unlikely, but so is the idea of talking a raccoon that is addressing a professor in the woods.  But many of us have read that account  by a highly respected man.

What the pictures I’m posting are implying  is not a belief in a huge being, who that night manifested itself enough to gaze through a  street lights haze, I’m suggesting something  just as fantastic in its own right,  a craft coming into a lighted area just enough that the street lights glow was reflected on its surface, revealing either a structural design or painting that resembled and angry colossal face.

We paint flames on our hot rods and teeth to make our planes seem more fierce, as in the case of some of the P-51 Mustangs. Why should we believe that they would not do likewise.  A civilization possibly visiting us  for thousands of years, that watched our stumbling ascent from primitive fear, but aware none the less that that such an image used in that way would still cause, even today, the desired effect.

Here’s a question;  if a group of superior beings were using such a tactic, why would they? Could it be to keep us afraid and away from certain actions like monitoring the activity around the place they attended, or is it  just to create terror and confusion in those seeing them?    Maybe they knew just how complex we are, that elements of strange and distant belief still hold an unconscious  place in us like primordial terrors. Even though we may laughingly reason away such mythological nonsense during the daylight, a face of metal hovering in the sky by night might shake a bit of our sophistication away and reveal  just another of our cloaked fears.
