Movie Star Thomas Jane Tweets About UFO Conference

Posted: Updated:

Another celebrity UFO tweet has hit the twittersphere. Last October several stars tweeted about UFO sightings, however this paranormal tweet comes from Thomas Jane and is regarding an upcoming UFO conference in Las Vegas. I am particularly excited about this tweet because I am hosting the conference.

Tom tweets:

Space Geeks! : A conference on Science and #UFOs, check it out: cosmic-exploration.com

I met Tom last summer at the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Symposium in Irvine, California. Of course we were all excited to have a movie star in our midst. I was even more flattered to find that the friend accompanying Tom was a fan of my radio show, which at the time I was hosting with my friend Jason McClellan. Tom and his friend asked us a lot of questions on our opinions regarding various UFO topics and notable cases. Throughout the conference Tom mentioned how he thought there should be a UFO conference with more scientists and academics. I let him know I was thinking about doing just that so he asked me to keep him updated, which I have.

Tom isn't the only celebrity interested in the topic of UFOs. Among the celebrities that tweeted UFOs last October was Demi Lovato who apparently had her own anomalous sighting in LA . She tweeted:

Did anyone else see a UFO or weird thing in the sky tonight in LA???

Besides tweeting about UFO sightings, Ridley Scott has been saying that the idea extraterrestrials lent a hand in the advancement of humankind was a major inspiration for his latest movie.

Scott told the Hollywood Reporter:

NASA and the Vatican agree that it's almost mathematically impossible that we can be where we are today without there being a little help along the way... That's what we're looking at (in the film), at some of Eric von Daniken's ideas of how did we humans come about.

Erich von Daniken's work was made famous in the 70s, when he introduced the idea that many mysterious ancient earthworks around the world must have been developed using advanced extraterrestrial technologies. He calls this the "Ancient Astronauts Theory."
