Does 16th Century Painting Depict Flying Saucer? Stop UFO Tomfoolery!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A strange disc pouring smoke and hovering over buildings has been found in a monastery wall painting thought to date from the 16th century - and UFO researchers claim it is just one of many old paintings which seem to show evidence of visitors from another world.

The photograph was taken by a tourist, Catalina Borta, and sent to UFO experts at the Israeli Extraterrestrials and UFOs Research Organization (EURA).

The caption on the painting says, "Israel, put your hope in the Lord,` and the image is thought to date from just after 1523, when the Bible was first translated into German."



There are a gazillion and one photographs and videos of UFOs online, do we really need to examine a painting from 1523 to determine if it depicts a flying saucer?

I`m surprised to discover that there`s an organization in Israel focused on researching UFOs. The tiny democracy is surrounded by implacable enemies determined to destroy her, the only thing Israelis should be examining the skies for should be drones from Iran or fighter jets from Syria.

In America we don`t have to worry about drones or military aircraft from our enemies flying over our friendly skies, we are free to smoke weed or gulp moonshine and imagine we see all sorts of extraterrestrial spacecraft in the skies.
