Aliens Are Real. Who Are They?
Welcome to another edition of the Science Pastor. My name is Steve, I'm the Science Pastor. And today we are addressing the question: are aliens visiting the earth?
This question came up about three weeks ago when I just briefly mentioned that UFOs are showing up in the news a lot lately, and it's because the U.S. Military, and the Navy in particular, announced that they are taking UFOs seriously. And that they are establishing procedures for reporting on what pilots see and collecting data, and analyzing that data about UFOs. Now just reading that on the surface it looks like... whoa, the government is taking this seriously. There must be aliens visiting the earth. The Navy is trying to do something about it. We've got UFOs visiting us!
Let's slow down, Slow down a little bit.
First... we need to recognize the military is doing their job... and second the term “UFO” does not mean flying saucer... or a spacecraft from another planet. It means... Unidentified Flying Object.
For example... an enemy... or even a friend... may be using a drone to spy on a military installation... or to track aircraft... that may initially be a UFO... it's unidentified... and our military needs find out what it is and what it is doing.
You have to realize this. There are drones that have some very odd shapes... there are stealth aircraft with small or unusual radar signatures... there are even high-tech spy balloons. And many of these things, when they are first seen, may be classified as unidentified. So there needs to be procedures in place for collecting this data, analyzing that data... and determining the identity of what was initially a UFO... an Unidentified Flying Object.
Our military needs to be doing their job... which is what this is say. Their job is protecting us from real world threats from human beings on this planet.
Why does this get all blown up? The news media likes to present this as though the military is protecting us from space aliens... why? Because it gets people's attention. It gets your attention. It brings eyeballs to their web sites, and that means money in their pockets.
So, are all UFOs the result of drones, stealth aircraft or spy balloons? We're going to answer that one quickly. No.
There are about 150 UFO sightings each day. But 90 to 95% are the result of man-made objects; people's imaginations; and hoaxes also. I can't believe it. The planet Venus continues to be a common source of UFO reports.
But that still leaves about 5% of UFO sightings as possibly being alien spacecraft. And some of these are very well documented... and these UFOs are doing things that are beyond our human capabilities.
They change shape and merge into one another. They defy the laws of physics with high speed turns and acceleration... changing direction without slowing down.
Four million Americans claim to have been abducted by aliens. That's significant. That's a number that can't be ignored. These are not all people who are imagining things. These are happening.
So are there aliens... beings from another planet... visiting us here on earth?
If you caught that show three weeks ago, that was the 7th Science Pastor podcast, I stated that UFOs are real and aliens are real... very real... but they are not coming from another planet... they are coming from another dimension... the spiritual realm...and I said that aliens are in reality demons... they are fallen angels.
And I said this was supported by scripture.
That generated some emails and also a comment on YouTube. We heard from you, and the main question that came up was: Does the Bible really identify aliens as being demons?
No, not straight out. There is no statement in the Bible that says, when you think there's a space alien visiting earth, it is really a demon. The Bible does not mention any kind of life from another planet. But, that's not evidence aliens don't exist.
The Bible never uses the words internet, airplane, or smart phone. Yet we know they exist. The Bible doesn't rule out aliens just because it doesn't talk about beings from another planet. But, there are a number of reasons we know there are no space aliens visiting earth. We know this for sure. We know the earth is not being visited by aliens. The beings claiming to be aliens are described and referred to as demons, or fallen angels in scripture. We'll see this as we go along.
What we see in scripture is that, just to briefly summarize, is that the characteristics of demons; the capabilities of demons; and the messages demons bring are same as those of supposed aliens. They match up.
A good book on this is "Alien Intrusion" by Gary Bates. There is also a video of the same name, “Alien Intrusion.” It goes into depth, just laying it all out, showing that aliens are actually demons that come from the spiritual realm.
Now the book is somewhat of a difficult read because Gary compiles a lot of physical evidence that makes for dry reading. But it is thorough, it is detailed, and it is Biblical. Gary is the CEO of U.S. branch Creation Ministries International. He is a trusted and reliable researcher and source. So I do recommend this book. It's just packed with good information.
What we're going to do here today is to look at this in three parts... three areas that show us that aliens are not visiting the earth and they are actually demons. We'll look at the constraints of the physical universe... and then we'll look at scripture... has God created intelligent life on other planets? And then ... what is some of the Biblical evidence that aliens are in fact demons?
First the constraints of the physical universe... we need to realize the impossibility of aliens even getting to the earth.
We know there is no intelligent life in our solar system. Our solar system has been explored to such an extent that we know that's true. It's accepted that aliens would have to come from planets outside of our solar system... and they are very, very far away.
So far away that it is impossible to get here from there.
We picture spaceships like those on Star Wars or StarTrek … zipping between star system at warp speed... but that's not how it works...
To travel between stars requires going faster than the speed of light... which is impossible. In fact some very odd things happen when we start moving that fast...
For example, if you leave earth and travel at the speed of light in that direction... and I leave earth and travel at the speed of light in the opposite direction... how fast are we moving away from each other? You're going the speed of light this way... I'm going the speed of light that way... so we are moving away from each other at twice the speed of light... no... we're moving away from each other at the speed of light.
Relative to other object, nothing goes faster than the speed of light. So two space ships, relative to each other, cannot move away from each other at a speed faster than the speed of light.
So each of us travels for a year. At the speed of light you would have travel 5.88 trillion miles in this direction. That'd about ¼ of the distance to the nearest star. So you still have a long way to go. And I would have traveled 5.88 trillion miles in this direction. How far apart are the two spacecraft? The two spacecraft are 5.88 trillion away from each other. Because they only could move apart at the speed of light. This can give you a headache, trying to wrap your mind around this. This is the stuff Einstein did. Relativity is what it is called.
And by-the-way, as you get closer to the speed of light, time changes. Even if you're not at the speed of light, even if you just go fast, time changes. Time... we think of it as a constant... tick... tick... Always the same. Time is always the same. It depends on where you are. Your location, that sets how fast time goes by. For example, for astronauts orbiting the earth. They're moving at a speed, they're moving faster. And that means time goes slower for them. When the astronaut comes back to earth, their watch will be... whatever, a minute, two minutes slower than a watch that was left on earth.
And your mass changes with speed. The faster you go, the greater your mass. At the speed of light the mass of your spaceship would be infinite. And there is not enough energy in all the universe to move an infinite mass. So your spaceship cannot go at the speed of , because it's mass would become too great.
Mass, time, energy, speed, gravity... they are all related... and the bottom line is that these facts mean you can't get there from here... "there" being another planet. Or you can't get from that other planet, that other star system, to here. Aliens cannot get here just based on physics. Aliens cannot get from wherever they may be to earth. That's the physics of it, very briefly.
Now, what does scripture say? Does scripture allow for intelligent life on other planets? The answer is no. It does not.
About six thousand years ago. We're going to read scripture now. This is Genesis chapter three, starting with verse six: When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.
This is known as the fall. Adam disobeyed God... Romans 5:12 describes what happened: "Therefore, just as through one man sin" [sin means disobeying God]... "just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned."
When Adam disobeyed God... his disobedience brought sin into all the world... and that brought death to all of mankind. But the impact of sin was not limited to just humanity. Romans 8:22 says: "For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now."
All of creation was impacted by sin. We see that in what physicists call entropy... everything is decaying. Everything... literally everything in the universe is dying. Romans 8 was written roughly 2000 years ago, and is describing something we didn't know scientifically until fairly recently. Everything is running down.
Let's read the context of Romans 8:22... I'm going to start in verse 18... this is Paul writing...
18 - For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
19 - For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
20 - For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope
21 - that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
22 - For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
23 - And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.
24 - For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees?
25 - But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.
The effect of the fall was universal... all of creation. If there was intelligent life on another planet, that life is included. They were corrupted by Adam's fall. They had nothing to do with it... but the Bible clearly says all of creation was effected by the curse.
Any alien life would not have inherited Adam's sin nature. They have no physical connection to humanity. Yet they are are corrupted.
Then there is Genesis 1:26 & 27
26 - Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
27 - God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Any aliens are not in the image of God. So they are not responsible for representing God. And... they have not inherited our sin nature.
Since they are not in the image of God, they do not deserve punishment for misrepresenting the image of God, so they don't go to hell. But they will die... the curse as a result of Adam's sin brings death top everyone.
They are subject to the effects of the curse and will die because of Adam. And they can't be saved by Christ's atoning death. Why not?
Jesus Christ is the kinsman redeemer. We are related to Jesus by blood. He was fully human. This is very important. This is why the virgin birth is important. Jesus was human... born as a human. He was our kinsman... but since it was a virgin birth, He was totally free from sin. We are related by blood AND Jesus was without sin, and that means He can redeem us.
BUT... His redemptive work on the cross would not apply to aliens. They are not related by blood to Jesus. So Jesus' death cannot redeem them.
So what we have are intelligent, and thus we can assume moral beings.
Yet they live in a cursed and corrupted universe, and they themselves are corrupted. They do not have original sin, but they, through no faulty of their own, are dying. Through no fault of their own, they will be lost forever when this present creation is destroyed, as described in 2 Peter 3:10.
But some say, Jesus could have gone to the alien planets and died for them. The aliens could have their own Bible. Everything that we have may be duplicated on other planets.
But... not according to what God says.
The earthly church is the bride of Christ. There is just one groom and one bride.
Christ died just once, and that was to pay the penalty for those made in the image of God... humanity.
Romans 6:10, talking about Jesus, says: "For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God."
And 1 Peter 3:18 says the same thing: "For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit."
Based on scripture... God's word... there are no aliens.
But I said UFOs and aliens are real. But, if there are no aliens... what is going on?
The evidence points to demons. That demons are manifesting as aliens. Demons are fallen angels and we know angels can take on the appearance of humans. We also know that demons are spiritual beings and are not bound by the laws of physics.
Demons can walk through walls, just as aliens are reported as being able to do. Demons can instantly change speed, appear and disappear, merge together and make high-speed right angle turns, just as UFOs are seen doing.
Some of the major names in serious UFO research, such as Dr Jacques Valle and J Allen Hynek , both are major names in the field of UFO research... both believe aliens and UFOs are not from other planets, but are inter-dimensional.
The spiritual realm would be considered another dimension.
Here's another view: Author John Keel, an influential UFO-ologist writes "The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon..." What is he saying? Looking back at history, the characteristics and actions of what are called aliens today, are the same as the recorded encounters with demons in the past.
And the evidence is compelling. The abilities and powers of aliens are the same as those of angels and demons.
Thousands of alien abductions have been documented, and these are not fantasies, and the message aliens bring are primarily religious messages, and exclusively anti-Jesus... anti-Christ messages.
And, this is very interesting, alien abductions can be terminated... ended... with just the name of Jesus... the authority of Jesus Christ typically ends a supposed alien abduction.
As I mentioned, Gary Bates' book, “Alien Intrusion.” Documents all of this. Another fact Gar points out is that aliens are promoting a New Age type of religion.
The fundamental belief of New Ageism is that we'll all be united in a new era of peace and unified consciousness. Aliens consistently preach that they have come to help bring peace and to unite all of mankind by making mankind forget their religion and loyalty to their countries. It's sounds like the coming of the anti-Christ to me.
Aliens “contact” many types of people, but New Agers seem to be a particular target. On the other hand they leave true Christians alone. For some reasons “aliens” don't like to abduct Christians.
Also, aliens are not opposed to being worshiped by humans... and they claim to be the source of life... to be the creators.
But what about abductions and people describing the interior of a spaceship, and describing medical procedures, and even describing being taken to other planets?
We see in scripture that demons, fallen angels, have the ability to interact with our minds. They can mess with our thoughts. The can plant memories... detailed memories that can not be distinguished from reality. And they can do this when we are asleep or awake or in a trance.
And demons can interact with us physically, leaving marks and damage on our bodies.
Nicole Malone writes: “I see nothing in the alien abduction phenomenon which can not be explained in the Biblically known abilities and deceptive agenda of fallen angels.” (The Bible, Physics, and the Abilities of Fallen Angels Nicole Malone, pg. 81)
Here's something that is interesting and has been throughly documented. Aliens have revealed were they come from. In the 1950's abductees were told by aliens that they came from Venus and Mars... today that story has changed... we know there is no life on either of these planets... so aliens now claim to come from far away stars or even other galaxies.
The descriptions of aliens, the vehicles they use, and their messages, always match the current culture. That's interesting...
We see the same thing looking further into the past to when fairies were thought to be real. Gary Bates writes: “Researchers have found similarities of a sexual nature between ancient stories of fairies, elves, and demons... and the modern abduction scenario.” (Alien Intrusion, page 305)
A few paragraphs later Gary writes: “The shape shifting qualities of these 'ancient rapists' are also similar to those of UFOs and aliens. Some aliens have been described as changing into 'beings of light,' giving, once again, the illusion of a divine encounter.” (Alien Intrusion, Page 306)
Here's something else... Both aliens and demons use similar strategies. For example, Satan – described in 2 Corinthinas 11:14 – disguises himself as an angel of light. He's is making himself appear as though he is good and he wants to help us... he is putting on a false appearance. And that's what demons do. They are seen to alter their form, and both aliens and UFOs commonly manifest as objects of light.
And as does Satan, aliens also claim to have come to help us... to do good... even to be our savior... and that is very common... to be our savior from the coming world disaster and destruction. Their message is... “I'm here to help you.”
That's what Satan was saying to Eve in the garden. “Oh, did God really say? I know better. Surely you will not die. God is deceiving you. The truth is, you can be like God. Trust me.” That's Stan's message... and in encounters with aliens the message is the same... “Trust us. We're here to help you.”
Yet the teaching and “advancement” aliens bring are destructive. The way they treat people is always harmful. They never give us life-saving technology.
And notice also that both demons and aliens seem to most often interact with people at night. They are creatures of the night.
So what we see is that... it is physically impossible for aliens to get here. And based on the Bible it is impossible that aliens exist. And the similarities between supposed aliens and demons... in both their characteristics and purposes... they are the same... there is no doubt in my mind that demons are masquerading as aliens in order to lead people away from Jesus.
