Fishing lines were bound around her wrists, and she’d been sexually assaulted and badly beaten. Police believed that one of her johns was responsible, but a year later, the body of another prostitute was discovered on a makeshift altar³.

Superior Universal Alignment

Valentina de Andrade led a 1980s UFO cult known as the Superior Universal Alignment in a remote region of Brazil. She claimed to receive extraterrestrial messages saying that God does not exist. However, Jesus was an alien who planned to send a spacecraft for saving true believers from the End Times. But there was an alarming element of her prophetic beliefs — boys born after 1981 were evil and must be purged from the world⁵.
