Man Claims UFOs Will Soon Appear Over Las Vegas
Our newsroom gets dozens of press releases every day from people who think they've got a good story for us. But we've never seen a "media alert" quite like this one. It says: "Beginning next week, spaceships will appear overLas Vegas," summoned on-demand by a man who claims he's in touch with an alien power. News 3's Steve Crupi reports.
This sounds strangely reminiscent of "The Amazing Kreskin." Thee years ago Kreskin got worldwide attention when he predicted that UFO's would appear over Las Vegas . But no surprise, it turned out to be a publicity hoax. Now, we have a man who calls himself a prophet, predicting alien activity, and he swears this is no hoax.
From the driveway of his downtown apartment, Ramon Watkins is waiting for UFOs. "There are spaceships right now, parked around the planet." On his web site, he goes by the name Prophet Yahweh and says the existence of extraterrestrial life will soon become obvious to everyone. "I know you guys are skeptical, and I don't blame you man." He has a computer filled with home videos that he claims prove his power to summon strange objects in the sky. And he says within the next 45 days something big is coming. "At least one of those days a gigantic spaceship is to set up over Las Vegas for a day and a half."
Watkins tried to give us a demonstration of his abilities, but we watched and waited, and all we saw was an airplane.
"We tried, it's a no-show."
Watkins says the aliens won't attack us the way they do in the movies, but he says their intentions are anything but friendly. "And they're here, to take over, it's just that simple."
"Should people be taking shelter and running away from Las Vegas if the ships are coming?"
Kreskin got it wrong three years ago; Prophet Yahweh says stay tuned, he is on a mission to prove all skeptics wrong. Ramon Watkins says he will be discussing his UFO prediction at length when he appears as a guest on Coast-To-Coast, a radio talk show, Friday night.
