... connected to alien sightings and the return of ancient gods
The Point, in Central Milton Keynes, is a hot spot for alien sightings, says UFO expert Nick Pope.
As we potentially bid farewell to The Point, one of Milton Keynes most recognisable landmarks, one question is still left unanswered. . .
Speculation of the building being connected to extraterestrial activity, and the Illuminati, have been circulating around the iconic structure for some time – but is there any truth in these theories?
Nick Pope, who investigated UFO sightings for the Ministry of Defence, said: “It is certainly a striking building, and if you believe the aliens theory, one could see why UFOs might be attracted to a pyramid-like structure.
“Many people believe that the ancient gods were, in fact, extra-terrestrials, and such people also believe that UFO sightings are a sign that the ancient gods are returning.”
He added: “I've come across several UFO sightings from the Milton Keynes area, it does seem to be something of a UFO hotspot, though I have no explanation for this."
But founder of the 'Mysterious Milton Keynes' blog, James Willishouse, doubts the Illuminati have any involvement.
He said: “Triangles have been long associated with the Illuminati and ancient history.
“On it’s own the building isn’t unusual but there are lots of pyramids throughout the city from the Old Bletchley Centre to Campbell Park.
“There are a lot of strange things in MK from pyramids, stone circles and a couple of labyrinths. I think the designers of the city were inspired by the new age.”
The red ziggart is currently under threat and faces being demolished as it is no longer used to it’s full potential.
New development will take it’s place but, if it remains, The Point will be 30-years-old next March.
James said: “I think the builders had theories of the Illuminati in mind as inspiration but I do not think it is necessarily part of the organisation.”
