This week, the former blink-182 member suggested that aliens may have been present for the birth of Jesus.
Outside of Angels & Airwaves, DeLonge dedicates a large amount of his time to unidentified aerial phenomena research with To The Stars Academy. After having a series of breakthroughs over the years with the organization, he is now revealing even more of his theories.
In a recent interview with The Guardian, DeLonge points out that many things “written in text thousands of years ago” have yet to be explained. As an example, he references the Book of Exodus and the burning bush which, according to religious scholars, spoke to Moses when God appointed him to lead the Israelites out of Egypt.
“Things were written in text thousands of years ago, like hearing voices in your head, a burning bush that was talking,” he shares. “The ancient texts may have called it God, but I’m just saying it’s not that simple.”
He then goes on to reference the Star of Bethlehem. The star appears in the Gospel of Matthew and leads the Wise Men to the birthplace of Jesus Christ.
DeLonge suggests, however, that the star could have been something else such as an unidentified aerial phenomenon. Given the star’s description within the text, DeLonge thinks the possibility is there.
“The star of Bethlehem – was that a star or a craft? Because a star is really big. It wouldn’t be hovering over a manger.”
DeLonge further says that people need to “open their minds” to the possibility that humans aren’t the only lifeforms out there.
“People need to buckle up,” he says. “Open their minds and stop talking about, you know, aliens and extraterrestrials, because I have a feeling that that’s not exactly what it is.”
As well, he says that skeptics can easily go online and read “thousands of reports” and evidence pertaining to unidentified aerial phenomena.
“Anybody can go on to the CIA website and read thousands of reports,” he continues. “There’s just a vacuum of conversation. Our government has had decades of the very difficult burden of dealing with something that is extremely advanced but poorly understood. They need time to dig into this, to understand it, to gather data and analyze it.”
Among the evidence, skeptics may find the videos that were uncovered by DeLonge and To The Stars Academy. They released three videos in December 2017 and March 2018 that showed objects in the sky that reportedly dated back to the mid-2000s.
A year later in 2019, the U.S. Navy acknowledged these videos and considered the “phenomena contained/depicted in those videos as unidentified.” This all eventually led to the To The Stars Academy’s partnership with the U.S. Army. Then, in April 2020, the Pentagon officially released three videos featuring alleged evidence of UFOs.
More recently, To The Stars Academy is trying to make some changes in the U.S. government. On June 23, To The Stars Academy was able to get language regarding unidentified aerial phenomena inserted into Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Authorization Act. If passed, how the government conceals and reports on classified information regarding UFOs would change.
Ultimately, To The Stars Academy wants the public to have more access to classified information pertaining to UFOs. That way, everyone can have further knowledge and understanding of these past and future discoveries.
In the Guardian interview, DeLonge also hints that various presidents have “come close” to truly acknowledging the existence of life beyond Earth. However, he doesn’t go too far into specifics about the information he may know.
“I can’t say much,” he shares. “But I do know there have been moments when certain presidents have come close. The issue always becomes: how are people going to digest this if we hit them over the head with a giant sledgehammer? That’s scary for people in the Pentagon when they’re trying to keep civilization duct-taped together.”
