Laurie Sheldon Oldford

L. Sheldon Oldford was born and raised in the Pentecostal faith and is a former Evangelical preacher turned ancient alien theorist. He began a career in Christian ministry after attending Bible college in Louisiana. He has preached on street corners, in prisons, at youth events and to crowds in excess of three thousand five hundred. He is now a Police Officer with over sixteen years in Law enforcement and has been assigned to both the domestic violence and narcotic units. He is currently a Arizona Police Officer Standards and Training certified gereral course instructor. He has testified in numerous criminal trials including testimonials as an expert witness. After studying the Bible many times during his career he became a ancient alien theorist after dissecting areas of the Bible and suggests that there is enough evidence through the wording of the Bible describing God as an Extraterrestrial. It was his career in law enforcement that changed his views on God and religion to the point of presenting his own interpretation of the events that occurred in Biblical times. He uses his investigative experience as a detective in writing his first very controversial and contemplative book called "Omittamus Descendam: The Biblical First Contact."
