Media Errors

Please note that in the above media, there are several errors and misquotations. Some (but by no means all) of these are corrected below:
– References by journalists to any current leader/head of The Aetherius Society are incorrect. The Society is run by three international executive bodies: the International Directors, the Senior Engineering Officers and the Ecclesiastical Synod, and has never had any leader other than Dr. George King (1919-1997).
– Dr. George King was not a “self-proclaimed doctor”.
– We do not claim that Sophocles was from another planet.
