Madam X is back in the Mojave with another installment of the weird and untimely. And what better place to start than Dolan Springs?
Who would have thought it?
Who would have thought this guy was a UFO Spiritual Master?
Not many people would take Dolan Springs, Arizona, as a hot bed of UFO unrest but then, there is is.
In the early 1990’s oldtimers in the area spoke of UFOs coming out of a nearby mountain. The theory was that this was a top secret military air base and those weren’t really alien-type UFOs from another planet, but our country’s own top secret military aircraft.
And yet, here we are thirty years later and the USA is still not using any saucer shaped air vehicles to transport soldiers around in OR using in a military capacity OR using for drone strikes. Or anything.
In the 1990’s, you could join the SULC
Then during the 1990’s, in comes a fellow determined to ramrod and harness these theories and sightings into possibly a money making enterprise. A man known as Mr. A. Able started his own church in Dolan Springs, called the Space Universal Life Church aka SULC with the mantra “Discover a new happiness!” For a time, the church did have members and was actually constructing a church building in Dolan Springs but that project was abandoned.
Not much is known about Mr. Able and if he is still in the area or even what his first name was. Abel Able? Abraham Able? Bill Abel? There were rumors that he was a con man and slick land fraud salesman from Vegas.
However, given that there were multiple stories about all the UFOs that could be sighted on any good weekend merely by sitting outside in one’s backyard while drinking a beer, it seems unlikely that Mr. Able was simply cashing in on the phenomena.
We only bring this up because…
The stories and sightings stopped for a time in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Heck, for ALL of the 2000’s as far as we know. But we only even bring this up now because, yes, the rumors are starting again. There is something in the air in the early evening. late at night, and sometimes early morning in the Dolan Springs area. We have received multiple reports of (yup) saucer-shaped air vehicles zipping around in and out of the air space around the Dolan Springs area.
What about Dolan Springs?
Where the heck is and what the heck is Dolan Springs? Dolan Springs (just call it Dolan) is a small, population about 2,000 folks, just north of Kingman, Arizona, in Mohave County. Mohave County as you may recall is home to several paramilitary groups and was once the home of Timothy McVeigh, far right nutter who blew up the Federal Building in Oklahoma City with bulk fertilizer.
But I digress.. It is high desert and has some of the most beautiful Joshua Trees that you can imagine. California does not have the patent on pretty Joshua Trees, oh no. It is a beautiful area and bills itself as “the gateway to Lake Mead.” Further up the road is Meadview, with even less people.
When I had the opportunity to visit and work in and around Dolan Springs, it was a depressed area with a more elderly population. Now it has a range of ages with the 60 and older crowd making up about 30% of the population.
There was a high percentage of people who chose to “live off the grid” and subscribed to conspiracy theories in the 1990’s. So they were naturals to think they had seen UFOs. Yet the reports did seem high for an area with such a small number of people living there. And reports from all over, not just the same people over and over. And now the reports are coming in again. And again. And again.
No weekend rendezvous planned at this time
There were no nightime weekend rendezvous for Madam X and her entourage back in the early 1990’s or not even now I am sorry to say. Don’t think that we aren’t interested! We are. We really are. But it is just bad timing for us.
There you have it, dear reader, hopefully enough to wet your appetite to get out and actually LOOK at the sky, check out the moon and stars. Are there any space people out there? Flying crafts? Cigar-shaped objects orbiting the earth?
Stop washing your hands long enough to check out our world.
You see it, we share it.
Till next time,
Dolan isn’t all weirdness and dry heat. It has a big history and clean air. Read more:
