Alien tourism-A A +A
As I See It

THIS may be something ancient, but only very few are paying attention to our mystic tourist attractions in Western Visayas. Could it be possible that our region has been host to alien life-forms? Are some of our attractions created by genetic engineers from the sky? This is not just a product of my imagination because even NASA is spending dollars in its desire to find life on other planets.
In Western Visayas, the farmers living near Baloy and Madyaas are claiming to have sighted flying objects that don't look like airplanes. In the past, some farmers even claimed that there are some strange clues in their farms of the possible landing of these vehicles from space. Probably the art left behind is not as elaborate as the crop circles in Wiltshire, England or the ice ring on Cranberry Creek (28 feet in diameter) in Pennsylvania.
Even here in Patag, Silay City, our residents and local trekkers have stories to tell. Pandong Bato in the North Negros Forest Reserve could be our Stonehenge. Boulders made a strange formation just like a waiting shed. At first, hunters and trekkers did not pay attention to the freakish structure. When Engr. Eladio Mondragon showed me the picture, we started to conclude that this is not an ordinary piece of furniture provided by nature. There could be some advanced devices that placed those boulders in place. Or, we could speculate that there were primitive architects who had the knowledge to manipulate gravity or had the power to use levitation to lift those giant stones.
Many say that Tinagong Dagat was once a crater of a volcano. That is just a guess. I was once there. In pictures and in movies, I saw also the craters of former volcanoes. The football field-size Tinagong Dagat is much different. The area is carpeted with fine grass. We all know that Silay City Government does not send grass cutters there. If I have the means only, I want to scratch the surface. I expect to see array of etchings, which could be a complex astrological chart like the Nazca Lines in Peru. The area could be an important landing site for extraterrestrial craft. The pointers there could be for spaceships trying to find their way back to earth.
When I was just starting my tourism career, the ISF farmers of Patag told me that they were able to find an elongated skull. They thought that it belonged to a Japanese soldier who died there. Out of anger, they crushed it. If the skull was elongated, it could be like the bizarre skull found in Mexico in 1926. Author Erich von Daniken said that it could be a result of a genetic mistake possibly containing too much alien DNA.
And speaking of the skulls, there was a crystal skull discovered in British Honduras by Anna Mitchell-Hedges in 1927 and the Amethyst Skull that was also a subject of controversy because it has an extraordinary elongated brain case and seems to bear an uncanny resemblance to modern drawings of the “Gray” species of alien. Mayan tradition said that three extraterrestrial visitors in our past brought 13 genuine skulls. Time will come that 13 of them will be reunited and the skulls will speak and their message will be revealed in 2012. (Just like what you see in the latest Indiana Jones movie.)
My friends in Sitio Sibato, Barangay Guimbalaon are telling me that they saw formation of lights just hovering on top of the forest trees. They attribute those lights to “Bulalakaw,” the birds of the fairies. If you believe that God created everything small and big, please consider my story, a part of the preposterous theory. Mia culpa! But, I don't prevent someone to say that we could be products of the direct result of extraterrestrial visitors (sky gods or star people) who interfered in our genetic formation.
In tourism, things like these are possible. In the future, we will prepare to welcome our ancestors from space. Are we half ape-half alien? By then, we will know the missing link.
