ONTARIO — Author C.A. Honey of Ontario calls himself a skeptic. Many others, he says casually, think he’s a wacko.
Honey, 74, has spent the last 45 years of his life seeking the truth about UFOs and “space people.’ His new book “Flying Saucers: 50 Years Later,’ published in yellow paperback by a Canadian company, was released earlier this year.
Honey, a television repairman and a former design engineering supervisor at Hughes Aircraft Co. in Fullerton, wrote the book because he needed the money and wanted to promote his agenda, he said.
“It’s exposing about 95 to 97 percent of the phony stuff in the field and setting people straight as to what is going on,’ he said. “A lot of people are interested in UFOs and flying saucers, but all they know is all this propaganda that is being put out by so many people.’
Honey became interested in UFO phenomena after he spotted a UFO in the late 50s while he lived in Seattle, he said.
Honey, who served in the U.S. Navy and Air Force and is also a professional hypnotist, makes several claims in the book.
UFOs, he says, originate from another planet still unknown to present day astronomers.
According to Honey, mankind did not originate on Earth through normal evolution but is the result of a special creation performed by the Nefilim who came to this solar system about 450,000 years ago as documented in ancient Sumerian writings.
He said the government has participated in a disinformation campaign, including the use of hypnosis, to confuse the truth and is concealing it from all those who could not accept it at this time.
Contrary to the beliefs of some, space people do not look like insects or reptilians, but in fact look like you and me, he said.
Pat Linse, founder of the Altadena-based Skeptic Society, said Honey’s claims are more religious than scientific.
“If they were scientific, people in all these other fields would agree with him more,’ she said, citing geneticists, biologists, archaeologists and biblical scholars. “He’s just an isolated figure whose come up with some very appealing ideas.’
Honey’s knowledge is the the result of logic, years of personal experience and research in the field, circumstantial evidence and research from pundits like Zecharia Sitchin, a Sumerian scholar, Honey said. Honey added that he does not like to talk about his personal encounters since he has no way of proving them.
“I think that what I write is logical, it makes sense and I document very heavily just about everything I do and why I believe the way I do on things,’ he said.
Honey, the son of evangelists, said he is on a campaign against “religious wackos’ — which he distinguishes from mainstream religious denominations — who say that flying saucers come out of hellfire and are piloted by demons.
Honey, who adds that he believes in God, also makes the claim that all religions are man-made. He does not know why the space visitors are visiting Earth, he added.
Honey was a ghostwriter and colleague for the late ufologist George Adamski until Honey dissolved their partnership in 1963. He did so, he said, because he disagreed with some of the later claims Adamski was making, including that he visited the planet Saturn in a spacecraft.
Honey has published 81 articles in the field, close to 25 of which are reprints of publications from other authors, which he sends to people free of charge over the Internet, he said. His writings have generated questions and comments from people around the world. Honey writes from his office, which is full of books and has a small section dedicated to flying saucers and alien memorabilia.
“I’m sincere in my beliefs and I make a standing statement that if anybody can come up with any documented evidence that I’m wrong about some of these things, I want to know about it, because I want to know the truth,’ he said.
