- Tim Cullen is a hard working cement contractor from Yuma,
Colorado. He was raised there, and resides with his wife Janet, and three
daughters. Three things happened to Cullen in 1978 that changed his life
forever. He suffered a terrible car accident, saw his first UFO, and suddenly
realized that both events had appeared to him in dreams well before the
actual occurrences. Was he then also psychic? "The events that have
happened to me over the past twenty-seven years have had an enormous effect
on my life and what I believe," Cullen, a practicing Catholic, told
me. "In a short span of time in 1978 it was revealed to me that we
are not the only intelligent life in the universe, and it was also proven
to me that God is with us always, without a doubt."
- On April 2, 1978 Tim Cullen dreamed that he was in a
terrible car accident. On April 9, 1978, he and his friend Ken Ruberg,
were driving on Highway 34 when Tim realized he was living out his dream.
"I thought about stopping and going back to townbut didn't,"
Tim said. Seconds later, he rolled the car five times, breaking his neck
on the first roll. Ruberg helped Cullen up out of the ditch, and waved
down a passing station wagon. They took Cullen to the nearest hospital.
The event was a replay of his dream. While in the hospital, under sedation,
Cullen dreamed of an encounter with a UFO.
- Returning home from a medical check-up in Denver on May
30, 1978, Tim and his wife Janet, a registered nurse, were driving north
on Highway 59 near the Vernon Road junction (about a quarter mile north
of it). It was dark, after 11:00pm at night. Tim saw a large dimly lit
object pass in front of the car, go behind a low hill, and re-emerge then,
"It went out a ways, along side, and as I brought the car down to
a stop, it came back toward us a bit. I backed the car up, and the UFO
went out to the west of us. It came in under the power and telephone lines
and hovered over a pasture. It was about a hundred foot long and twenty
foot wide, and about ten foot high," Cullen relates. "It didn't
make any noise. There were two diffused lights that shone at the back of
the craft, one a light yellow, and the other red. We couldn't see very
good. We sat there and stared at it for awhile. After we looked at the
two lights for a few minutes I turned to my wife and told her we might
as well go on to town." Janet was five months pregnant with their
- The Cullens have no memory of being taken aboard the
craft, nor of any missing time. "Now, when I think about it, when
I turned and started driving, I did have an odd feeling, but it didn't
really register with me. I remember coming back to Yuma, but not looking
at a clock. I was kind of shocked by the whole thing. I didn't really think
of looking at a clock," Cullen said.
- Twenty years later in 1998, while setting rebar at a
job, Tim Cullen hit his thumb with a hammer. Sometime later, he thought
the finger might be dislocated so he went to see Dr. Mark Hubner at the
Yuma Clinic. The doctor suggested they take an X-ray. On returning with
the film, Dr. Hubner asked, "Did you know you have a piece of metal
in your arm?" At that moment, Tim Cullen knew what the object was.
He knew that he and Janet had experienced missing time on May 30, 1978.
- In 1980, Cullen experienced another encounter, at exactly
the same spot! The craft hovered and two diffused yellow lights came on.
Then one started blinking, and he stared at it. "This can't be happening!"
he thought. "Not right here!" The craft kept moving in back of,
and out from behind a low hill. Then it moved slowly away from him. Figuring
they didn't want him to see them, he got back in the car and returned to
- Again, in 1994, with his wife and three daughters, they
encountered a smaller craft with a strobe light, about forty miles south
of Yuma. "It hovered off the road in front of us, and we stopped and
looked at it for five to ten minutes. It moved around for awhile and finally
went off to the north," Cullen related. The girls seemed mystified
by it, but they were younger and I don't really think they realized the
enormity of what they were seeing."
- Tim didn't think much about UFOs or abduction before
his experiences, and had never heard about Alien implants. But after seeing
the X-ray, and knowing where the object in the film came from, he started
exploring the Internet about the subject of UFOs and abduction. He joined
an on-line encounter group, and learned about a man in California, Dr.
Roger K. Leir, who removed what were reported to be "Alien Implants".
He and Leir communicated for over a year.
- The ninth alleged alien implant was surgically removed
from the left forearm of Tim Cullen on Saturday, February 5, 2000. The
operation was performed at a medical facility in Thousand Oaks, California.
The procedure was performed by a surgical team led by Dr Roger Leir; the
surgery by Dr. John D, Matrisciano. "I know nothing about UFOs or
implants," Dr. Matrisciano said after the operation, "but I think
that's what is needed in this case; to be objective." Removal of the
small, "melon seed" type implant went very quickly, and smoothly.
The operation was videotaped by The Learning Channel for an upcoming show.
- Recently, at a MUFON Board meeting, I saw videotape of
the object that was removed, which was shot through a microscope. The object
was about 7 centimeters long and 4 centimeters wide. It is covered by an
amazing reddish-brown membrane and has several long, proceptors (which
were connected to nerve endings) on one end. A dark area reveals a metal
core. When a magnet was placed a half-inch from the object, it literally
leapt to the magnet! As yet, the object has not been sent to anyone for
analysis. An appropriate laboratory is being sought, as are funds for performing
various tests of the object.
- Tim Cullen has become very outspoken about his experiences
and about the object that was recently removed from his arm. Unlike others
who have had implants removed, Tim has allowed his name to be used in the
press, has given out his phone number, and has recently established an
Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. On returning to Yuma, Colorado after
the implant removal, Cullen told his story to Yuma's local paper, The Yuma
Pioneer, and addressed both the congregations of his Catholic Church, and
his wife's Presbyterian Church. He has also been on the Art Bell Dreamland
show with Dr. Roger Leir and host Whitley Streiber.
- While at one of the church presentations a woman reached
out and touched Tim's sleeve. "My husband and I know exactly what
you've been through," she told him. Tim plans to talk with them. Another
man E-mailed Tim and told him of an experience he had had. Many have come
forward with stories since his return from the implant removal. "A
lot of people around here have seen strange lights in the skies,"
Cullen reports. "Yuma is an agricultural area. They raise a lot of
corn, pigs, and cattle here. Many of the ranchers have reported cattle
mutilations, several within the last few months. One lost a prize bull."
Understandably, the ranchers are angered and frustrated about these events.
They don't understand why they happen. Tim doesn't like not being able
to remember what happened to him when the object was planted in his wrist.
He is considering going through hypnotic regression in California to see
if his subconscious can reveal any answers, as it has in others. He now
admits he thinks he has been abducted. Why is he being so open?
- Analyses from seven of the eight other implants removed
have shown that the membrane surrounding the metal objects seems to keep
them protected from foreign object rejection. "This could be a huge
medical breakthrough for doctors who want to use biological, metal, or
implants of other materials, in their patients. Several prestigious labs
have chemically broken down the make-up of the membrane. With the proper
research, funded by large pharmaceutical companies, human body rejection
of such implants could save many lives in the future," Cullen said.
"I'm coming forward because someone has to put a face to the alien
stories, and cause more people to come forward," Tim Cullen told the
Pioneer. "The more people we can find with implants, the more evidence
we're going to have. We can study things a lot more and get things done;
get rid of the stigma around it."
- Tim Cullen is now slated to appear on stage with Dr.
Roger Leir at the upcoming International UFO Conference in Laughlin, Nevada,
in March. He vows to continue to put a face on the alien abduction/ UFO
scenario, to fight for the removal of the membrane of secrecy imposed by
secret/black groups within our government. One can only hope Tim Cullen's
shining example will inspire others to come forward. There are several
organizations looking for volunteers to serve as witnesses and give testimony,
perhaps in front of a Congressional Committee. Dr. Steven Greer's CSETI
(www.cseti.com) is actively looking for all manner of witnesses, as is
Peter Gersten's CAUSE (www.cause.org).
- "Everybody's coming out around here," Tim Cullen
says proudly. "The truth needs to come out!"
