In 1973, Erika Bertschinger fell off a horse and landed on her head, after which she realized she was the reincarnation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Not long after, Bertschinger began conversing with a whole host of disembodied beings, many of them biblical figures that included Jesus, who—it turns out—was an ET.
In 1980, Bertschinger changed her name to Ureilla and founded a religious order (or what some termed a cult) called Fiat Lux headquartered in Germany’s Black Forest. Fiat Lux (Latin for “Let There Be Light”) subscribed to the belief that World War III would kick off in 1998 followed by a Nazi flying saucer invasion that would bring about Armageddon. While all this commotion was going on, Bertschinger and her bunch would be transported up by a “Big Beam” into an awaiting mothership as Earth was being cleansed of all human evil and afterwards restored to a pre-Adam and Eve paradise. After all was right again, the Fiat Luxers would then return to start over again—overseen, of course, by Jesus Christ, the ET.
Unfortunately—or at least unfortunately for Bertschinger’s bunch—Armageddon didn’t go down quite as planned, if you recall 1998, and shortly after Fiat Lux went underground, contemplating their next move on the world’s stage. Since then, Fiat Lux has experienced occasional run-ins with the law regarding tax evasion and the sale of medicinal elixirs containing alleged healing properties. Convinced that “www” equates to “666,” Fiat Lux does not maintain a website or email address, so if you want to find out more you’ll have to travel to Germany.
