UFOs: ANCIENT ALIENS OR BEINGS OF THE FOURTH DIMENSION #1: FACT OR FICTION?
Studies have established that the majority of UFOs are observations of some real but conventional object—most commonly aircraft, balloons, noctilucent clouds, nacreous clouds, or astronomical objects such as meteors or bright planets -- that have been misidentified by the observer as anomalies, while a small percentage of reported UFOs are hoaxes. However, after excluding these incorrect reports, between 5% and 20% of the total remain unexplained, and so can be classified as unidentified in the strictest sense. Many such reports have been made by trained observers such as pilots, police and the military; some involve radar traces, so not all reports are visual. Proponents of the extraterrestrial hypothesis believe that these unidentified reports are of alien spacecraft, though various other hypotheses have been proposed.
While UFOs have been the subject of extensive investigation by various governments, and some scientists support the extraterrestrial hypothesis, few scientific papers about UFOs have been published in peer-reviewed journals. There has been some debate in the scientific community about whether any scientific investigation into UFO sightings is warranted.
UFOs have become a prominent theme in modern culture, and this cultural phenomenon has been the subject of academic research.
Due to the great volume of New Age & Occultic interaction with these so-called "aliens from space" such as spirit guides, the UFOnauts, the entities from Lemuria and Atlantis and from every other location from here to the mythical Clarion who give us new age "religious" messages these days it is easy to come to the conclusion that these "space aliens" are what the Bible describes as fallen angels (demonic spirits inhabiting the fourth dimension). These interdimensional beings have repackaged the same old lies they have been perpetrating against humanity from the time their leader, Satan himself, showed up in the Garden of Eden promising godhood to Adam and Eve in exchange for their disobedience to God. The Bible tells us that when he (the devil) was cast down out of heaven, he took with him one-third of the host of heaven (Revelation 12:4). These powerful beings "disguise themselves as servants of righteousness" the way "Satan disguises himself as an angel of light" (2 Corinthians 11:14-15). They are in open rebellion against God and are trying to recruit as many people as they can in their uprising [read the entire 12th chapter of Revelation]. Through the years their message remains the same, but they change their methods, using powerful, lying signs and wonders to draw people away from God [see 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12]. They are from the realm of darkness and the occult. They have the power to interject into our minds evil thoughts. They have been linked to poltergeist activity, fairies, strange knocks in the night - the same things UFOs are linked to." Modern man refuses to believe that UFOs & UFO activity are related to the demonic because if he accepted that then he would also have to accept that the Bible is therefore true and the God of Scripture is real afterall.
Not only do UFOs & the occult use the same disciplines such as levitation, teleportation of objects, psychokinesis, clairvoyance, automatic writing & telepathy but their theologies are completely foreign to Biblical Christianity. UFO theologies include everything from reincarnation & evolution, to man achieving cosmic godhood, but they do not include Jesus Christ as the only mediator between God & men (1 Timothy 2:5). In fact, numerous anti-Christian cults such as the Aetherius Society, the Urantia Group, the Solar Cross Foundation, the School of Thought, & others were begun by alleged UFO communications. UFO magazines are filled with occultic ads for witchcraft, Satanism & astrology along with cultic ads & philophies by "New Age" groups.
