About two weeks ago, while waiting on some friends for a Bible study at Wendys in Hazard, I started talking with some of the workers while I was getting a Frosty (chocolate, of course).
I posed a simple question to them:
“If you could read a relatively well-researched article on any topic in the world, what what you want to learn about?”
I got several excellent answers:
How do you know God exists?
Why does God allow evil to continue in the world?
Who is right: the Bible or scientists?
Where do dinosaurs fit into the Christian worldview?
Are ghosts real?
What does the Bible teach about smoking marijuana?
However, what I found very interesting was that at least three of the workers expressed great interest in a subject that is often avoided by Christians and ministers (and a topic which we will be investigating in this article):
What About Aliens/U.F.O.’s?
When it comes to the study of U.F.O.’s and “aliens,” there are two basic approaches of what we are talking about.
Researcher Josh Peck has summarized these two positions for us:
“There are two prevailing theories to explain the sightings of unidentified flying objects and nonhuman entities. One states they are of a physical origin (usually extraterrestrial) and one states they are extradimensional (what some might call “spiritual”). The more popular of these two is the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH). This is a common view that is promulgated through our culture in the form of the media, entertainment, and even some of our religious belief systems. The lesser known view is the Extradimensional Hypothesis (EDH), which can sometimes be confused with the Interdimensional Hypothesis (IDH)…The difference is that “interdimensional” seems to denote capability while “extradimensional” denotes origin. For example, if we as humans were to discover a way to travel between dimensions, we could be considered an interdimensional species, or beings with interdimensional capabilities. If an entity originates from a higher dimension than our own, it would be considered an extradimensional being. The EDH we will be looking at throughout this book states UFOs and their pilots, at least some of them, originate from a higher dimension than the three of space in which we currently reside.” (Josh Peck, Cherubim Chariots: Exploring The Extradimensional Hypothesis-Extradimensional Vehicles, Ancient Nephilim Technology, and Interstellar Prophecies Revealed! 1-3 (Kindle Edition))
There are thus two possible explanations for the legitimate U.F.O. encounters.
One view states that these craft are extraterrestrial in origin, being the creations and vehicles of inhabitants of non-humans who evolved on other planets in our universe.
The other theory states that these encounters are part of a deliberate attempt to deceive large numbers of humans by masquerading beings who inhabit higher dimensions than cannot be readily detectable by mankind’s limited nature.
Let me point out near the beginning of this article that there is a plethora of published material regarding these matters.
Scripture And “Aliens”
Being a member of the church of Christ, I first and foremost look to what the Bible teaches regarding these matters.
As Christians, we hold to the Bible as the inspired Word of God because of the overwhelming amount of evidences which demonstrate its’ Divine status (i.e., its’ components of prophecy and fulfillment, supernatural unity, miraculous attestation, archaeological confirmation, scientific foreknowledge of the Bible writers, etc.).
On the one hand, it may be accurate to state that the Bible is silent on the subject of extraterrestrial existence (if by “extraterrestrial” we are referring to non-human beings who evolved or were created to live on other planets in our universe).
Looking at this subject from this vantage point, it could be stated that this is something which the Bible simply does not explicitly address.
With that being said, there are indicators that the Bible indicates extraterrestrial life does not exist.
First, the Bible specifically says that the reasons for the existence of the other heavenly bodies is to be for signs and seasons (Genesis 1:14-15) and to expressly declare the glory of God (Psalm 19:1-5).
Second, it is clear from the Bible that God’s primary focus is on humanity (cf. John 3:16) and that the very purpose of existence is for the redemption that will take place through Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:3-4, 9-11).
Third, is it really logical to believe that the Bible (which provides mankind everything which is necessary for life and godliness-2 Peter 1:3) would be silent about such an important topic of extraterrestrial existence if aliens did, in fact, exist?
If aliens did indeed exist, and the Scripture was silent on this matter…well, that would be pretty shocking!
Of course, there are some who attempt to try and make the Bible teach that aliens have been here all along.
Ron Rhodes provides several claims made by U.F.O. supporters in which they allege that certain Bible events (Ezekiel’s cherubim, the parting of the Red Sea, etc.) are actually examples of alien interference.
He powerfully writes:
“I do not believe for a minute that UFOs are in the Bible. In every case above, UFOlogists are reading their own meanings into the biblical text (eisogesis) rather than drawing their meanings from the biblical text (exegesis). Allow me to illustrate. By using eisogesis instead of exegesis, a Marxist interpreter could so skew the meaning of the U.S. Constitution that it came out reading like a communistic document. UFOlogists have done this same type of thing with the Bible. They so skew the meaning of the biblical text that it comes out saying something entirely different than what was intended by the biblical author. Instead of superimposing a meaning onto the biblical text, the objective interpreter seeks to discover the author’s intended meaning (the only true meaning). One must recognize that what a passage means is fixed by the author and is not subject to alteration by readers. Meaning is determined by the author; it is discovered by readers. And a singular key to determining the intending meaning of the author is reading the verse in context.” (Ron Rhodes, The Truth About U.F.O.’s And Aliens: A Christian Assessment, 1024 (Kindle Edition))
Scientific Difficulties Of Extraterrestrial Life
Further, there are some very good scientific reasons why many in our world still dismiss the idea of life elsewhere in the universe.
Please consider some of the following examples of scientific evidences which demonstrate that U.F.O.’s are not actually extraterrestrial in origin.
Is There Really Life On Other Planets?
While many are not aware of this, the scientific evidence we have discovered from the universe itself shows us that life must be very rare, and well over 150 scientific universal factors show us that this universe is fine-tuned for life to exist in one place: planet Earth!
Stephen Williams provides a list of some 93 universal factors which make life on Earth possible, and then provides a list of an astonishing 154 factors that exist within our Solar System that make life here possible.
After amassing these incredible facts, Williams writes:
“Keep in mind that this list is always growing as new improbabilities are being discovered. According to Dr.’s Ross and Rana, the improbability increases by about a million times each month!…Since the threshold of mathematical impossibility is 1 in 10 to the 50th po wer (ie: given a 13.73 billion year universe, there is not enough time for anything with this or smaller odds to occur by chance), and the odds of this fine- tuning coming into existence by chance are far, far beyond that, we can rule out chance. Only a transcendent Creator makes sense of this unbelievably complex order in the universe….For example, Stephen Hawking has estimated that if the rate of the universe’s expansion one second after the Big Bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand million million, the universe would have re- collapsed into a hot fireball due to gravitational attraction. (4) Physicist P.C.W. Davies has calculated that the odds against the initial conditions being suitable for star formation (without which planets could not exist) is one followed by at least a thousand billion billion zeroes! (5) Davies also calculates that a change in the strength of gravity or of the weak force by merely one part in 10 raised to the 100th power (!) would have prevented a life- permitting universe. (6) As we saw in the previous lists, there are dozens and dozens of such constants and quantities present in the Big Bang which must be exquisitely fine- tuned in this way if the universe is to permit life. Moreover, it’s not only each individual quantity or constant which must be finely tuned; their ratios to each other must also be exquisitely finely tuned. Therefore, vast improbability is multiplied by vast improbability, and yet again by vast improbability repeatedly until our minds are simply reeling in vanishingly small odds. There is no plausible physical reason why these constants and quantities should have the values that they do. Reflecting on this, the once- agnostic physicist P.C.W. Davies comments, “Through my scientific work I have come to believe more and more strongly that the physical universe is put together with an ingenuity so astonishing that I cannot accept it merely as a brute fact.” (7) Likewise, British Astrophysicist Sir Frederick Hoyle remarks, “A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super- intellect has monkeyed with physics.” (8) Robert Jastrow, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, refers to this as “the most powerful evidence for the existence of God ever to come out of science.” (9) So, again, the view that Christian theists have historically held, that there is an intelligent Designer of the universe, seems to make so much more sense than the atheistic alternative: that the universe, when it popped into being, without cause, out of nothing, just happened to be, by chance, fine- tuned for intelligent life with a mind- numbingly unlikely precision and delicacy. To call the odds against this fine- tuning occurring by chance “astronomical” would be a wild understatement.” (Stephen Joseph Williams, What Your Atheist professor Doesn’t Know (But Should): An Exploration Of The Implications Of Modern Science, Archaeology, History And Philosophy, 120-122 (Kindle Edition); R.F.H.)
The more we learn about the universe, the more we are realizing that the Earth is truly unique.
Two scientists, Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay W. Richards, recently wrote an incredible book, The Privileged Planet: How Our Place In The Cosmos Is Designed For Discovery.
Throughout this incredible volume, they highlight some of the universal factors which make life on Earth possible (and which factors also strongly argue against extraterrestrial life).
Even though they have come under some “heat” from Darwinist indoctrinated groups for their research, their work remains extremely powerful and convincing.
Biochemical Challenges To Extraterrestrial Life Evolving Elsewhere
During the time of Charles Darwin, it was commonly believed that “life” was a simply and uncomplicated biological process.
Today, we know better!
In fact, what we have learned about the complexity of life on the cellular level is absolutely staggering, especially in its’ implications regarding the existence of God and the ever-increasing realization that Darwinism evolution is impossible (in our world and anywhere in the universe).
Commenting on the stunning complexity of a single cell, one apologist notes:
“Cells are the fundamental building block of life. We have approximately 100 trillion of them. Until the advent of molecular biology, many scientists thought the cell would be a simplistic structure. Instead, we find the complete opposite! Apart from the brain, the cell is the most complex structure in the universe. For instance, a British team discovered a cellular F1F0- ATPase enzyme with an in- built rotary engine no bigger than ten billionths by ten billionths of a meter. 6 One scientist recently described a single cell organism as a high- tech factory made up of 10 million atoms and complete with: artificial languages and their decoding systems, memory banks for information storage and retrieval, elegant control systems regulating the automated assembly of parts and components, error fail- safe and proof- reading devices utilized for quality control, assembly processes involving the principles of prefabrication and modular construction . . . and a capacity not equaled in any of our own most advanced machines, for it would be capable of replicating its entire structure within a matter of hours.” (Paul Ferguson, God And The Atheist: A Lawyer Assesses The Evidence For The Existence Of God, 341-355 (Kindle Edition); Greenville, South Carolina; Ambassador International)
Today, it is common to hear people claim that all you need for life anywhere is a some water and electricity and BAM!!! YOU HAVE LIFE!! However, the real facts of the formation of life are MUCH more complicated.
In order for life to be created, amino acids within cells must form together in extremely complex chains which then form proteins. These proteins must then go together in still more complicated ways before life may be created.
The amino acids and proteins are multifaceted. Imagine them as the pieces of a huge jigsaw puzzle. Each “piece” is shaped differently and in such a way as to have to fit with another “piece” which must then fit with all of the others in order to form the proteins.
What happens if a “piece” tries to link up with another besides its’ perfectly shaped “counterpart?”
Then that is the end of the show.
Amino acids and proteins must line up perfectly in order to function and to produce life.
Walter Bradley, being interviewed by Lee Strobel, has explained it like this:
““Okay,” he said, clearing his throat. “Essentially, you start with amino acids. They come in eighty different types, but only twenty of them are found in living organisms. The trick, then, is to isolate only the correct amino acids. Then the right amino acids have to be linked together in the right sequence in order to produce protein molecules. Picture those plastic stick-together chains that kids play with—you have to put together the right amino acids in the right way to ultimately get biological function.” Imagining kids playing with plastic toys made the process seem—well, like child’s play. “That doesn’t sound very difficult,” I said. “It wouldn’t be if you were applying your intelligence to the problem and purposefully selecting and assembling the amino acids one at a time. But, remember, this is chemical evolution. It would be unguided by any outside help. And there are a lot of other complicating factors to consider.” “Such as what?” “For instance, other molecules tend to react more readily with amino acids than amino acids react with each other. Now you have the problem of how to eliminate these extraneous molecules. Even in the Miller experiment, only two percent of the material he produced was composed of amino acids, so you’d have a lot of other chemical material that would gum up the process. “Then there’s another complication: there are an equal number of amino acids that are right- and left-handed, and only left-handed ones work in living matter. Now you’ve got to get only these select ones to link together in the right sequence. And you also need the correct kind of chemical bonds—namely, peptide bonds—in the correct places in order for the protein to be able to fold in a specific three-dimensional way. Otherwise, it won’t function. “It’s sort of like a printer taking letters out of a basket and setting type the way they used to do it by hand. If you guide it with your intelligence, it’s no problem. But if you just choose letters at random and put them together haphazardly—including upside down and backwards—then what are the chances you’d get words, sentences, and paragraphs that would make sense? It’s extremely unlikely. “In the same way, perhaps one hundred amino acids have to be put together in just the right manner to make a protein molecule. And, remember, that’s just the first step. Creating one protein molecule doesn’t mean you’ve created life. Now you have to bring together a collection of protein molecules—maybe two hundred of them—with just the right functions to get a typical living cell.” Whew! Now I was beginning to see the enormity of the challenge. Even if Miller had been right about the ease with which amino acids could be produced in the primitive earth’s atmosphere, nevertheless the process of putting them together into protein molecules and then assembling those into a functioning cell would be mindboggling.” (Walter Bradley, in Lee Strobel, The Case For Faith: A Journalist Investigates The Toughest Objections To Christianity, 98-99 (Kindle Edition); Grand Rapids, Michigan; Zondervan)
The amazing complexity of life that science has uncovered in recent years has been the driving force behind the conversion of many former Darwinists to creationism. The complexity of microscopic life argues strongly against the potential for extraterrestrial existence.
The Extradimensional Hypothesis
There are thus several reasons to reject the belief that the U.F.O. phenomenon is extraterrestrial in origin.
With that in mind, please consider with me some of the evidences that the alien phenomena is actually extradimensional.
First, let me quote from several ufologists who have studied the subject for decades. Many of them have come out in print, after investigating hundreds (and in some cases, thousands) of accounts of individuals who have had U.F.O. experiences.
One of the most famous investigators of U.F.O.’s is a man by the name of Jacques Vallee. He has written several books on our subject. In one in particular, he documents how the medical practices of the “aliens” (among other things) argues against their being extraterrestrial in origin.
“The consensus among UFO researchers in the 1960s, including myself, was that we were probably dealing with space visitors. The idea, at the time, was revolutionary. Scientists like Carl Sagan pointed out that space visitations, if they occurred at all, would be very rare. Other scientists, like Donald Menzel, rejected the whole idea, because even the nearest stars are too far away for interstellar travel to be feasible, even at high speed…The real question is, does the “spacecraft” hypothesis explain to our satisfaction the facts of the UFO phenomenon as we know them today? The answer is a definite and resounding no…But let us forget these problems and take all the material at face value. Do we obtain a picture that suggests extraterrestrial contact with advanced visitors? My answer is an emphatic no… I asked earlier: what kind of spacecraft pilots are these, if they still have to use maps to navigate? Now I have to ask: what kind of doctors are these, who need to induce such trauma in hundreds of patients to collect a little blood, a few embryos? Any doctor today can draw one cubic centimeter of blood without leaving a scar or a mark. From the analysis we could determine if the patient used to have a Siamese cat as a pet when he was six years old! Molecular biology, a science in its infancy, is already capable of providing incredible amounts of information from minute amounts of human cells. In vitro fertilization has reached a level such that the so- called genetic experiments allegedly performed aboard UFOs seem ludicrous and grotesque. The ufonauts should go back to medical school. Using the advanced paralyzing devices they possess, it should be simple for them, if they were an extraterrestrial task force, to raid the blood bank of any modern research hospital where they would also find collections of frozen embryos at various stages of development. And what kind of psychologists are they, if any amateur hypnotist can readily uncover from the witness the details of an abduction that was supposed to be totally erased from his or her mind? We have mind control drugs that ensure permanent, selective memory loss. Wouldn’t smart extraterrestrials know as much? In my view, the interaction remembered by the witnesses, it it was a real occurrence, should be treated at the symbolic level. It does not tell us anything about the extraterrestrial origin of the beings, and the idea that they must perform such experiments to enrich their race is merely another contribution to the absurd character of the entire phenomenon.” (Jacquess Vallee, Dimensions: A Casebook Of Alien Contact, 4058-4266 (Kindle Edition; emphasis added, M.T.); San Antonia, TX; Anomalist Books)
In his other books, Vallee argues strongly in support of his viewpoint that the aliens are actually interdimensional beings.
Another famous ufologist named Philip Imbrongo published a book a few years ago that powerfully argued the case that U.F.O. phenomena are extradimensional in nature, especially noticing how many encounters involve occultism and parapsychology:
“In the final years of his life, Dr. Hynek no longer believed in the extraterrestrial theory for the origin of UFOs. We had many conversations about the subject, and he expressed his doubts that UFOs were physical craft from other star systems.. To quote Dr. Hynek, “I have come to support less and less the idea that UFOs are nuts-and-bolts spacecrafts from other worlds. There are just too many things that go against that theory. To me, it seems ridiculous that a technologically advanced race would travel great distances to do relatively stupid things like stop cars, collect soil samples, and frighten people. I think we must begin to re-examine the evidence; we must look closer to home for the answer. I think we should consider that UFOs come from other dimensions, a parallel reality, a universe that exists in the same place as ours, but at a different frequency, so to speak.” Hynek also started to see the connection between UFO reports and certain types of psychic phenomena, because there are many UFO cases that have poltergeists, apparitions, strange sounds and lights, and other types of psychic manifestations attached to them. Over the many years that I have been researching the phenomenon, I have found this to be true. Quite a number of UFO case studies are like ghost stories rather than encounters with spaceships and beings from another star system.” (Philip Imbrogno, Interdimensional Universe: The New Science Of U.F.O.’s, Paranormal Phenomena, & Otherdimensional Beings, 1147-1153 (Kindle Edition); Woodbury, Minnesota; Llewllellyn Publications)
One of the most famous ufologists of the last several decades has been John Keel. He began his research decades ago, probably around the 1950’s.
He was deeply involved with the study of U.F.O.’s, eventually amassing a database of thousands upon thousands of firsthand accounts of his investigations.
One of his books, Operation Trojan Horse: The Classic Breakthrough Study of U.F.O.’s, landed him in a great deal of controversy.
As I have read his book, I can only conclude that the reason why so many people were so angry with him is because he provided such incredible evidence that the extraterrestrial theory was false and that the aliens that people were encountering were actually extradimensional.
People often do not like the truth: they often decide to “kill the messenger” because they do not “like” the message.
The best I can do is provide several quotations from Keel’s book (John Keel, Operation Trojan Horse: The Classing Breakthrough Study of U.F.O.’s, San Antonio, Texas; Anomalist Books, Kindle Edition):
“In my studies of several other flaps I have discovered this same baffling geographical factor. If the UFOs are actually machines of some sort, their pilots seem to be familiar not only with our calendar but also with the political boundaries of our states. They not only concentrate their activities on Wednesday nights, they also carefully explore our states methodically from border to border. Does this sound like the work of Martians or extraterrestrial strangers? Or does it sound like the work of someone who is using our maps and our calendars and may, therefore, know a great deal about us, even though we know little about “them”?” (13)
“The most popular theory is that the flying saucers are born and bred on some other planet and that they visit us occasionally to drink our water and bask in our sun. But all of the available evidence and all of the patterns indicated in the now- massive sighting data tend to negate this charming theory.” (29)
“The real problem remained: What had these people seen? The general behavior of the objects clearly indicated that they were paraphysical ( i.e., not composed of solid matter). They were clocked at incredible speeds within the atmosphere but did not produce sonic booms. They performed impossible maneuvers that defied the laws of inertia. They appeared and disappeared suddenly, like ghosts.” (29-30)
“Other thoroughgoing researchers started to move toward the paraphysical concept in the early 1950s. The British science writer Gerald Heard published Is Another World Watching? in 1950, in which he examined the extraterrestrial theory pro and con and postulated his “bee” concept, suggesting that the objects might represent a mindless order organized by some larger intelligence. Another famous English science writer, Arthur C. Clarke, turned his attention to UFOs in 1953 and wrote articles pointing out that the general data suggested the objects were paraphysical and not too likely to be extraterrestrial. If there was an actual turning point in ufology, it occurred in 1955. That year the “secret” was widely and repeatedly published by many superbly qualified investigators. Many UFO students reviewed this well documented material and quietly abandoned the subject, feeling that the mystery had been competently solved. A few held on until they were able to confirm the published evidence to their own satisfaction. Then they dropped out, leaving a vacuum in the field that was erratically filled by cultists and the emotionally disturbed types who were attracted more by the cloak- and- dagger aspects and the anarchistic possibilities of the allegations of official censorship. A new UFO wave over England in 1950 inspired a new RAF investigation that was continued behind the scenes for five years. On April 24, 1955, an RAF spokesman told the press that the UFO study was completed but that the findings would be withheld from the public because they would only create more controversy and could not be adequately explained without revealing “certain top secrets.” This enigmatic statement hardly satisfied anyone, but soon afterward RAF Air Marshal Lord Dowding, the man who had directed the Battle of Britain in 1940, gave a public lecture in which he openly discussed the paraphysical aspects of the phenomenon and declared the UFO occupants were immortal, could render themselves invisible to human eyes, and could even take on human form and walk and work among us unnoticed. This was very strong stuff in 1955, and the UFO enthusiasts didn’t quite know what to make of it. The cultists still circulate his earlier pro- extraterrestrial statements made before he reached the paraphysical stage. Still another excellent British researcher and reputable author, Harold T. Wilkins, stressed the paraphysical aspects in his 1955 book, Flying Saucers Uncensored . In the earlier stages of his research he had concluded that much of the evidence pointed to hostile intent, but later, as he developed a better understanding of the paraphysical factors, he modified this conclusion… Sensible research must be dictated by this basic precept: Any acceptable theory must offer an explanation for all the data. The paraphysical hypothesis meets this criterion. The extraterrestrial hypothesis does not.” (33-34)
“In 1957, Ray Palmer started a new magazine called Flying Saucers . In the early issues he titillated his readers by hinting that he knew the secret. Then, in 1958, he published his conclusion that UFOs were not from some other planet, offering as an alternative a complex theory about secret civilizations with paraphysical or psychic ties to the human race. (As early as 1949, he had editorialized that saucers were extra- dimensional not extra- terrestrial.) He stubbornly stuck to his guns and published a number of small magazines devoted largely to the psychical aspects of the phenomenon. After a twelve- year struggle, his Flying Saucers had managed to build up a meager readership of only 4,000 paid subscribers and 6,000 newsstand sales despite nationwide distribution..For many years Al Chop, an Air Force information officer, lent his name to the board of governors of Major’s Keyhoe’s organization, the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP). But in 1966, he withdrew his name, and in personal correspondence and in appearances on radio programs he declared that he no longer accepted the idea that flying saucers were real, physical machines.” (37)
Several more quotations from this book could be provided; but these are sufficient to show us where Keel stood on the matter. Indeed, his voice was one of a growing chorus spanning decades which clearly understood that the U.F.O.’s were not extraterrestrial.
Here were some of the oddities which they noticed:
Why would extraterrestrials be interested in humans to begin with?
Surely they would be much more advanced and intellectually superior to us! So why would they initiate any kind of contact?
If there were extraterrestrial civilizations, how did they come to Earth?
The vast distances between the stars (and the unfathomable energy requirements for a ship to travel in interstellar space) would make such a scenario unlikely, to say the least.
Why would extraterrestrials advanced enough to travel through the stars be detectable by humans?
Simply stated, if there are extraterrestrials who do not want to be detected by man, we should never have detected them!
Why would the medical technology of the extraterrestrials be so comparable to human technology?
Why would such an advanced civilization want to conduct experiments on humans to begin with?
Further, why would they not have the ability to adequately suppress human memory?
Why is there such a clear connection between so many U.F.O. sightings and occult practices?
This is one of the connections that Keel especially makes, and which has been noticed by others (and will be elaborated upon shortly).
How do we account for the belief that extraterrestrial spacecraft have been captured by governments of the world?
Would alien civilizations which were able to travel in the void between stars fly to Earth and crash because of an electrical storm?
Is it really logical to believe that such an advanced ship could be shot down by humans?
For these (and many other) reasons, researchers through the years have rejected the theory that U.F.O.’s are extraterrestrial.
Indeed, the extradimensional hypothesis sounds more and more convincing.
The Occult Connection
There is something very strange about the entire U.F.O. phenomena: there is startling evidence that the aliens want to drastically change the mindsets and beliefs of humans.
In his book, The Invisible College, Vallee documents his belief that the U.F.O.’s have the intention of controlling and conditioning the human mind and belief system.
In describing different ways animals can be manipulated (and then comparing humans to the animals and the belief that the aliens are similarly programming us), he writes:
“How can we verify whether such conditioning is in fact operating?…If the phenomenon is forcing us through a learning curve then it MUST mislead us….If this is so, then UFOs can never be analyzed or conceived, because they are the means through which man’s concepts are being rearranged. All we can do is to trace their effects on humans….What is the variable being controlled in this control system? Thermostats control temperature; gyroscopes control the direction in which a rocket flies. What could a paranormal phenomenon control? I suggest that it is human belief that is being controlled and conditioned.” (Jacques Vallee, The Invisible College: What A Group Of Scientists Has Discovered About UFO Influence On The Human Race, 2993-3014 (Kindle Edition); San Antonio, TX; Anomalist Books)
And here we come to it: perhaps one of the most telling indicators behind the U.F.O. phenomenon is the fact that the aliens are intent on influencing the beliefs and thought processes of humans.
Several researchers have noticed that there is a consistent theme to the message of these invaders: they encourage their abductees to reject Jesus Christ and the Bible.
“A vital clue to the UFO mystery is this: UFO theology—gained from these so-called close encounters—is diametrically opposed to Christianity. The world of the occult and the people involved in it speak constantly of contact with UFOs and their occupants, and the theology derived from UFO contact is most revealing. Extraterrestrials (according to those who claim to have spoken to them) do not believe God is a personal being; they do not believe Jesus Christ is the only Savior, and they do not believe the Bible alone is God’s Word to the world. They do not believe in eternal punishment, and they do not believe in bodily resurrection. The reincarnation of the Hindus, Kabbalah, and New Age philosophies gains a new perspective when viewed through the eyes of extraterrestrials: it transforms into planetary reincarnation, where people evolve from planet to planet in order to reach perfection.” (WALTER MARTIN JILL MARTIN RISCHE KURT VAN GORDEN, The Kingdom Of The Occult, 373 (Kindle Edition); Nashville, TN; Thomas Nelson Publishers)
“An examination of the evidence indicates beyond any doubt that a primary agenda of the alien “visitors”— whoever or whatever they are— is to change the way human beings think about God and His Word (the Bible), and to replace exclusivistic Christianity with a religion of universalism….Jacques Vallee, a longtime researcher of UFO phenomena (and the real- life model for the French scientist in Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind ), suggests that the “visitors” are purposely hoping to change our belief systems and are engaging in a “worldwide enterprise of ‘subliminal seduction.’” 8 In his book The Invisible College , Vallee argues that “human belief…is being controlled and conditioned.” Indeed, “man’s concepts are being rearranged,” and we may be headed toward “a massive change of human attitudes toward paranormal abilities and extraterrestrial life.” 9 (“Paranormal” refers to that which is beyond the normal.) Vallee notes that the methods of the “aliens” are those of deception: “systematic manipulation of witnesses and contactees; covert use of various sects and cults; and control of the channels through which alleged ‘space messages’ can make an impact on the public.” 10 By using such deception, these alien entities are attempting to change the way humans think….John Weldon, a Christian researcher who has been investigating the UFO phenomenon for many years, says the visitors seek “to deliberately move significant portions of an entire culture, or world, into acceptance of or involvement in the occult, and a collective alteration in worldview. This is preparatory for and necessary to the events surrounding the rise of the Antichrist [the final anti- God world leader who comes into control of the world in the end times].” 13 Weldon, who believes the “aliens” are really demonic spirits, says they “are here to misguide the multitudes and they are doing pretty well. [The ‘aliens’] have judiciously utilized their powers through selected people to fascinate the masses, and they have widely promulgated their doctrines.”…I’ve noticed a pattern. Whereas the actions and messages of the “aliens” are consistently occultic in nature, they are also anti- Christian in nature. They never say things that affirm the Bible as God’s Word. They never say anything that even remotely glorifies Christ. They never say anything about man’s sin problem or his need for redemption. They never say anything about Christ’s redemptive work at the cross.” (Ron Rhodes, The Truth About UFO’s & Aliens: A Christian Assessment,1144-1183 (Kindle Edition))
“Further, in light of the messages given by the UFO entities, how credible is it to think that literally thousands of genuine extraterrestrials would fly millions or billions of light years simply to teach New Age philosophy, deny Christianity, and support the occult? Why would they do this with the preponderance of such activity already occurring on this planet? And why would the entities actually possess and inhabit people just like demons do if they were really advanced extraterrestrials? Why would they consistently lie about things which we know are true, and why would they purposely deceive their contacts? All this is why a number of UFO researchers have concluded that UFOs are real but do not necessarily originate from other planets…For example, Raymond Fowler, the author of five books on UFOs, confesses, “I [have] watched in dismay as a number of respected UFO researchers moved from a physical to a parapsychological interpretation of the bizarre UFO phenomenon…. Now, I [too] am being forced to reexamine the UFO phenomenon in light of its apparent paraphysical nature.”…So what are the messages from these advanced extraterrestrials deep in space? According to scores of books by contactees that we have read, they teach 1) that biblical religion is false and outdated; 2) that man must develop his psychic ability; 3) that we are at the threshold of a New Age of occult enlightenment; 4) that God and man or the creation are part of the same divine essence (pantheism) and 5) that extradimensional entities are now present to assist mankind in leaving the “old ways” and adjusting to the New Age of spiritual advancement. Nor should we neglect the recurring theme that some forms of drastic authoritarian social control may be necessary to assure the survival of this planet.” (John Ankerberg & John Weldon, The Facts On UFO’s: And Other Supernatural Phenomena, 201-541 (Kindle Edition): ATRI Publishing)
“We are dealing with a yet unrecognized level of consciousness, independent of man but closely linked to the earth. I do not believe anymore that UFO’s are simply the spacecraft of some race of extraterrestrial visitors. This notion is too simplistic to explain their appearance, the frequency of their manifestations throughout recorded history, and the structure of the information exchanged with them during contact.” (Jacques Vallee, Confrontations: A Scientist’s Search For Alien Contact, 89; New York, NY; Ballantine)
“We will also observe in other chapters the spiritual messages UFO deceivers have consistently shared with those who have had face-to-face contact. This is perhaps the most convincing evidence of all. It is interesting that they twist or deny many important biblical truths. Why would supposedly evolved intelligences from other worlds be so concerned about a local, unique, religious manifestation? “They should not be threatened by something we would eventually ‘outgrown’ as a race. The obvious answer is that the Bible makes their attempt to deceive us evident. It thwarts their plans for mass brainwashing and takeover. They must deny the truth of the Bible.” (David Allen Lewis & Robert & Robert Shreckhise, UFO End-Time Delusion, 1819-1826 (Kindle Edition); Green Forest, AR; New Leaf Press)
These accounts can be multiplied many times over. The consistent theme inherent in many of these encounters is that the visitors communicated an anti-Bible and an antichrist message in one form or another.
Now, this raises a very important question (or actually several very important questions).
Why in the name of reason why E.T. fly billions of light-years to Earth to throw off on Jesus Christ and Christians?
Something just does not add up here folks.
This is perhaps one of the strongest reasons why I personally believe that these “visitors” are actually deceiving spirits who are attempting to turn people away from The Lord and the truth of His Word.
When investigating all of the evidence, this is the only only conclusion which adequately fits all of the facts.
We know (from Scripture and from science) that the spirit realm exists, and that a war rages therein:
Ephesians 6:10-12-10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
2 Kings 6:15-17-15 And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” 16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
Interestingly enough, science has only served to confirm this teaching of Scripture (as science discovery always does):
“But the most stunning feature of superstring theory, one that I have little doubt would have set Einstein’s heart aflutter, is its profound impact on our understanding of the fabric of the cosmos. As we will see, superstring theory’s proposed fusion of general relativity and quantum mechanics is mathematically sensible only if we subject our conception of spacetime to yet another upheaval. Instead of the three spatial dimensions and one time dimension of common experience, superstring theory requires nine spatial dimensions and one time dimension. And, in a more robust incarnation of superstring theory known as M- theory, unification requires ten space dimensions and one time dimension— a cosmic substrate composed of a total of eleven spacetime dimensions. As we don’t see these extra dimensions, superstring theory is telling us that we’ve so far glimpsed but a meager slice of reality.” (Brian Greene, The Fabric Of The Cosmos: Space, Time, And The Texture Of Reality, 585-590 (Kindle Edition); New York; Vantage Books)
“In it’s most famous form, so-called M theory, scientists tell us that reality is divided not into four but rather eleven dimensions, sions, ten of space and one of time.4 So where are the other dimensions? sions? Well, string theorists say they are hidden dimensions, somehow positioned so that they are invisible and inaccessible to us. While we can’t see them, they help to account for the things that we do see.” (Dinesh D’Souza, Life After Death: The Evidence, 78 (Kindle Edition); Washington, D.C.; Regnery Publishing)
The war rages on. Our enemy uses deception as a primary weapon against us (John 8:44; Ephesians 6:10; 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12).
While we cast a careful eye on the subject of U.F.O.’s and aliens, let’s remember that the devil and his ministers transform themselves into angels of light and ministers of righteousness (2 Corinthians 11:1-15).
The grace of The Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
