An Update on Peter Gersten and His Leap of Faith.

In a highly anticipated update to the story of Peter Gersten, who claimed he would be jumping from Bell Rock into some sort of portal, we have finally managed to verify and update everyone who has been standing by waiting for the news and whether he achieved his goal. At the time of the Winter […]

Now-retired lawyer Peter Gersten has been a renowned figure in the conspiracy world since the 1970s.

One of his significant claims to fame was in 1977 when he filed for legal action against the CIA – demanding the release of documents concerning UFOs. This resulted in over 900 pages of documents being released – there was little information within the documents that weren’t already known, and many of the documents featured your everyday “officer, I see a strange light in the sky” transcripts.

There were, however, about 57 pages that were not fit for release due to security concerns. This obviously baited the cover-up allegations.

Unfortunately, the reasons for removing the pages weren’t as exciting as many had expected, they were simple: the files included sensitive information on U.S. technology – a piece of confidential information that would allow foreign nations to pick up on the CIA’s upcoming developments. For example: there was a transcript that featured Cuban pilots discussing a strange object in the sky – it was later claimed that the object was not the concern; the fact that the CIA were listening in on Cuban communications was.

Peter Gersten claims that he will take what he calls a “Leap of Faith” from Bell Rock in Arizona – a steep incline that many ‘new age’ specialists consider to be the doorway into the Earth or a gateway to other dimensions.

Gersten claims that he will jump at the precise moment of the solstice: 11:11 UTC (11:12 to be precise) on Dec, 21, 2012. Explanations and details of the 2012 Winter Solstice can be found here.

Peter Gersten’s full response to the plan is as followed:

“On the Winter Solstice of 2012 at exactly 11:11 UT a cosmic portal will open in Sedona Arizona and a leap of faith – from the top of Bell Rock – will propel me through its opening…. My two principal beliefs are:

1) that our reality is an intelligently designed cosmic holographic program and

2) that on the Winter Solstice of 2012 at exactly 11:11 UT – a Trans-Dimensional Event (T-DE) will occur… an article on my web site discussing the Mayan calendar end-date states that: There is no reason not to take a leap of faith imagining what may be in store (10). So by now you must have an idea of what I plan to do on the Winter Solstice of 2012 at exactly 11:11 while on the top of Bell Rock – a place only a few miles from my home…

Most of you will think that I am delusional and that my insane act will certainly result in my death. Death is inevitable – at least nowadays – and 100 years from now it won’t matter whether I died in 2012 or 2013 or even 2020. But I believe that some type of cosmic portal will be opening at that time and place and that an opportunity will present itself. I fully expect that it will either lead to the next level of this cosmic program; freedom from an imprisoning time-loop; a magical Martian-like bubble; or something equally as exotic.

In March 2012 I will reach 70 years of age and nine months later we arrive at the cosmic coordinate. I think it will then be time for me to move on – in one form or another.

I’d like to see what else our Cosmic Computer has to offer.”

  • ufolawyer

    LOL. At least show a photo of Bell Rock In Sedona – not some imposter.

    • WordMean Team Member

      Yep, In hindsight adding a Google Earth picture was a strange idea. Changed.

    I predict that his death will be interpreted by his ilk as the transportation process into the dimensiony thingy. His writing does sound like he’s basically planning to commit suicide.

  • Prima Polanco

    I heard he is not doing it. Allegedly the police got involved and will be there to stop him…saved! :D

  • edrag

    that is 4:11am Sedona time?? is this a hoax? bc ill be there if its not!!!

  • Redgusher293

    He changed his story so instead of his “Leap of Faith” Initiating the portal, he is going to wait for it to open and then jump. And since obviously a portal isnt going to open he isnt going to jump
