Out of all the weird creation myths that exist, Ashtar has to be the strangest. At this point you may be asking yourself, who is Ashtar? To put it simply, Ashtar is a telepathic space Jesus whose followers commune with him via meditation and psychic channeling. Ashtar first appeared in the early '50s when he spoke to a UFOlogist who relayed his first messages to the American people. Since then, there have been Ashtar cult rumors spreading around the globe.
The '90s were the most prominent era for followers of this dashing extraterrestrial. Aside from preaching about the eternal harmony that Ashtar offers humanity, they’ve also warned against a secret world government that desperately wants to enslave humanity. Venture on into the world of Space Jesus to find out what this glorious being offers and to finally discover exactly what is the Ashtar Command.
Ashtar Is A Giant Blonde-Haired, Blue-Eyed Space Jesus
Extraterrestrials are often thought of as either short gray creatures or large reptilians, but the appearance of Ashtar changed that trope. This celestial pretty boy proved Nordic features extend throughout the Milky Way. He first appeared to UFOlogist Geroge Van Tassell in the middle of the 20th century when his space station entered our solar system on July 18, 1952.
Upon speaking to Ashtar, Van Tassell asked what the alien looked like. He answered, "I am seven feet tall in height, with blue eyes and a nearly white complexion. I am fast of movement and considered to be an understanding and compassionate teacher."
The Ashtar Command Is Waiting In Outerspace
If you're wondering why Ashtar can't transport down to Earth and give a wave, it's likely because he's busy commanding The Ashtar Command. The AC isn't just an army of other towheaded pretty boys - it's an interstellar group of "extraterrestrials, angels and lightbeings" who work alongside one another on Ashtar's space fleet. The fleet is allegedly situated over the Western Hemisphere where it's in the process of helping humanity ascend to the heavens.
The ships in Ashtar's fleet look a bit like large gray cylinders that refuse to betray the massive ecosystem that exists inside. The ships contain everything from flora and fauna to artificial lakes and concert halls. If you had your own lake and concert hall, you'd probably never leave your home either.
A Follower Of Ashtar Hijacked A British News Live Broadcast In 1977
On November 26, 1977, a follower of Ashtar took over the airwaves to let the people tuning into Southern Television know about the brilliance of Space Jesus. The broadcast begins normal enough, but then it devolves into visual scribbles as a mysterious voice lays out a message from the most handsome alien in the universe. The message claims to come from "Alien Vrillion," or possibly "Gillon," or "Asteron." The message tells viewers that it's time for the people of Earth to dispose of our weapons and stop destroying ourselves. Once that happens we can share in the "great awakening."
Ashtar Followers Believe The One World Government Is Out To Microchip And Track Us All
The followers of Ashtar, specifically members of the Universe People, are obsessed with the idea that the one world government is enacting a plan to place a microchip inside every living human being. According to a brightly colored pamphlet on the group's website (pictured above), they were once worried about the possibility of people being tattooed with a barcode, but they've since moved on to the dreaded microchip and a variety of other possible tracking methods. The Universe People claim the "forces of evil are supposed to plan compulsory chipping of the population" and they'll be using "adhesive labels, stamps, visiting cards, badges, and signs of any size."
