In 2010, during a pseudo ecumenical 'Saviour's' Day' lecture, Minister Louis Farrakhan revealed he had a vision in 1985 during a trip to Mexico involving "the mother wheel." During the detailed and complex four hour speech, Farrakhan claimed he was invited aboard the flying saucer where the spirit of Elijah Muhammad conversed with him about future events. This is classic flying saucer cult tactics. The cult leader claiming to have special insights or messages from off-planet beings, and then delivering a cryptic versions of the experience during long-winded dialogues which spellbind and mind controlled the cult members with unique events predictions only those in the cult have full understanding of.
It is no secret that Louis Farrakhan is an admirer of Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard's and in particular Hubbard's book "All about Radiation". The Nation of Islam also state that Book of Ezekiel describes a “Mother Plane” or great “Wheel” which was reconstructed in Japan in 1929.
"White people call them unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Ezekiel, in the Old Testament, saw a wheel that looked like a cloud by day but a pillar of fire by night. The Hon. Elijah Muhammad said that that wheel was built on the island of Nippon, which is now called Japan, by some of the original scientists. It took 15 billion dollars in gold at that time to build it. It is made of the toughest steel. America does not yet know the composition of the steel used to make an instrument like it. It is a circular plane, and the Bible says that it never makes turns. Because of its circular nature it can stop and travel in all directions at speeds of thousands of miles per hour. He said there are 1,500 small wheels in this mother wheel which is a half mile by a half mile. This Mother Wheel is like a small human built planet." - Louis Farrakhan
