In the early 1990s, an Evangelical filmmaker produced a pretty good documentary on UFOs. Below is part 1 of 8 from YouTube. As a teenager, I actually saw the first person interviewed (Dave Hunt) at my church a couple of times. Hunt was an occult and cult researcher, and made the church rounds in the United States sharing his views and selling his books. I assume that he has either passed away or is very old and no longer writing books. He had a creepy public speaking delivery and intense, mesmerizing eyes. As he told his paranormal and cult anecdotes to a church audience, he would raise his eyebrows spookily and use lots of pregnant pauses that would scare the living crap out of you. He could really cast a spell. (Ironic, isn’t it?) I also met Dave Hunt at his house in Northridge, Ca., and discussed intellectuality and the occult with him a bit. He gave me a copy of one of his books. I promised to return it to him, but never actually did (thoughtless me). My religious views have evolved since my teens, and I’m an agnostic about a lot of things (including God and UFOs). Still, I think this UFO documentary is well done and informative, and the thesis (that aliens are disembodied mental or spiritual, not organic, beings) is one that Jacques Vallee, the famed secular UFO researcher, has flirted with as well.
NOTE: I see that Dave Hunt has a Wikipedia bio page here. He’s still alive. He’s 83 years old. I suppose I should finally get around to returning his book to him.
