Finishing Section 3

Chapters 26-29 recount some of the happenings with Elmwood Wisconsin and the UFO working group. 
One of the residents, a Methodist minister, voices his objection to the "UFO Days" that are being planned at Elmwood.  He uses a two-pronged attack:
  1. people are bowing down to the UFO as a "golden calf" rather than seeking spiritual guidance from God
  2. their was only only Jesus, who died for our sins, so the aliens must be evil.
Of course I am oversimplifying, but that those are the main ideas.

While, I was reading I couldn't help but think of this as happening in the 50's but this was in 1988.  I also looked up Elmwood Wisconsin and they apparently still have the UFO Days.  They even have a Facebook page set up for them  UFO Days in Elmwood

Then the book joins the UFO Working Group where they had two "undercover" people getting all sorts of information from people at the celebration. They also talk to a professor of exobiology, Cyril Ponnamperuma.  Exobiology is the study of what life would look outside of Earth's atmosphere. Also, at this time, 2 Canadian scientist were working on a theory about what dinosaurs would look like if the Stenonchosaurus dinosaur hadn't died out

It ends with the group looking at picutres that were shown in People magazine, the humanoid, and the Canadian pictures and they all look remarkably similar.
