Ramon Watkins prays, objects appear in sky 

KNTV, a Las Vegas ABC affiliate took on a challenge from a guy who calls himself Prophet Yahweh (born Ramon Watkins) and claims he can summon UFOs through prayer - a talent he says he learned from the Old Testament. The station picked a day, time and location for a UFO summoning. He convinced the news crew by giving them not one, but two UFOs to film: "it's an orange sphere that appeared out of nowhere" ... "I can see it clear as day. In fact, it's bright."

Fantastic Planet thinks "it's a con of some kind," citing the fact that Prophet Yahweh tried to charge for access to videos on his website, but "this isn't to say that he's not involved in some sinister mind control plot involving the militarization of space." Rigorous Intuition also suggests Watkins is the victim of a mind control by the military. Posthuman Blues also finds "the proximity to Nellis AFB suggestive of a psy-ops operation of some sort." Pyramid Termite points to a photo of a black man holding two large balloons and declares Prophet Yahweh debunked.

I feel like I can safely rule out military mind control without giving an explanation.

Here are other videos of "Prophet Yahweh" summoning "UFO's" (WindowsMedia - download to disk before viewing - you may have to change the file extension to ".WMV").

In each, there is a cut in the video after he prays and before the object shows up. The videos are all more or less like the KNTV videos: spherical, metallic looking objects in the sky. It's hard to get a sense of how or if the objects moves, except in LV4, which appears to show some movement.

LA5 shows a red/pink sphere with a white middle.

I find LV2 the most interesting - it shows something the shape of a rotating trapezoid or several spheres bundled together and shifting around each other in a more or less regular pattern.

In LV6 a plane flies through the camera's field of vision, but one can't tell if the plane is closer or further away than the object.

When one freezes the frames on LA2, it appears that the object is actually two objects, although my unprofessional musing tells me this may be an artifact of the video camera that doesn't show up in the other videos.

The rest are interesting if you want to hear Prophet Yahweh talk about how the orbs are meant for the "true children of Israel" and how the Star of Bethlehem was one of these orbs.

The footage KNTV shot shows the object move across the fringe of a cloud, it seems somebody experienced in analyzing video could determine if it was in front of or behind the cloud - as well as the distance and size relative to the airplane that flies by in LV6.

That there is a cut in the video between the praying and "sighting" in each and every clip is suspicious, but that the news crew claimed to witnessed the event is hard to explain, unless they are in on on the hoax. I see the possible explanations as this:

The simplest explanation is, of course, a hoax of some kind - you don't have to explain metallic angels, government conspiracies or craft from another planet - or as many such explanations, all three at once.

For what it's worth, here is Prophet Yaweh's press release, claiming more summonings over the next 45 days, culminating in a spaceship that will be visible to all of Las Vegas for two days. An elaborate viral marketing campaign for War of the Worlds? The Prophet is definitely giving ample opportunity to try to debunk his claims.

I've listened to a two radio interviews with him, he comes off as a true believer, so I'm guessing the hoax is in part on him or that he has some talents that a news crew has never before captured on film. One thing's for sure: my friend the Apostropher was wrong.

I'm going to watch a few episodes of season one of the X-Files and try not to let it run away with my imagination.

my friend the Apostropher was wrong

Wouldn't be the first time...
Evidence points to a scam involving weather balloons released from a certain distance away.
No, it couldn't be a hoax. After all the UFOs were summoned by a "prophet" and "prophets" are never wrong. Are they?
allelouya Yahweh he is not whrong but you are
fine, they are weather ballons...bit i dont know.

i saw a video that had him capturing a video of two triangulAr shaped vessels.

exactly like the one viewed in AZ, known now as the "pheonix lights"

check it out here:


the weather ballons explains a lot:

always circular (except for the one previously mentioned)

always during the day time, so one can see them

still the "V" shaped ones got me bugging out on some truth shit.
im sorry try this one:

"And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. " Revelation 13:13-14

"Whereas you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men; but they shall not cling to one another, even as iron does not mingle with clay." Daniel 2:43
