UFOs Are Demons?


            UFO aficionados’ joy over the floating city video from China that went viral a few weeks ago was momentary. This was a fake or fata morgana (mirage) [1].

            Reports of UFOs captivate everyone. We love to hear strange fascinating phenomena bordering on the miraculous.

            It is valid to probe UFOs from a Christian perspective, since there is a religious nuance to the UFOs. It is believed that aliens abduct humans to transmit religious messages to mankind.   

            Kenneth Samples, coauthor of “Lights in the Sky and Little Green Men: A Rational Christian Look at UFOs and Extraterrestrials,” describes “Residual UFOs” (RUFOs). RUFOs are the real UFO sightings because they defy naturalistic explanations [2].  Although RUFOs are a minority (5-10% of all UFO sightings), they number in tens of thousands of unexplained UFO sightings.

            Consider the three hypotheses that explain RUFOs [3]:

            1. Misidentified Hypothesis (MIH) posits UFO occurrences as natural phenomena. So, a majority of UFOs become IFOs (Identified Flying Objects), which are either man-made or explained in a naturalistic perspective e.g. floating city video.

            2. Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH) proposes UFOs as alien spacecrafts. But serious scientific, technological and logical problems motivate the most credible ufologists to reject this theory.

            3. Interdimensional Hypothesis (IDH) asserts that UFOs are real but belong to another dimension of reality. Some Christian ufologists posit certain UFO reports as demonic.

            To reiterate, 90-95% of UFO sightings are IFOs; they are grouped under the misidentified category. But a minority of UFO sighting is authentic.

            While concrete evidences for extraterrestrials visiting earth are yet to be substantiated beyond doubt, the notion that UFOs are demons trying to mess around with human beings could be considered for its credibility.

            Secular scientists consider the possibility of UFOs being demonic. Dr. Carl Sagan, Arthur C. Clark, Preston Dennit, and Dr. Jacques Vallee, among others, have expressed views that UFOs could be demonic manifestations [4].

            The Bible accentuates the angelic power to transform / masquerade / disguise to deceive humans (cf. Genesis 2:1; Deuteronomy 4:19; Ephesians 6:12; 1 Timothy 4:1; 2 Timothy 4:3-4; 2 Corinthians 11:14-15) [5]. So the possibility of evil angels a.k.a. demons manifesting as UFOs is real.

            Christian ufologists emphasize the demonic deceptions of UFOs for it influences people away from the worship one true and living God, “The emphasis here is that many people groups throughout history have turned from worship of the true God to created things – including the “hosts of heaven” in the historical Biblical sense, but more recently, to accepting the teachings of modern “aliens” that THEY are humanity’s creators, and saviours…Our hope in posting this information, as always, is that people will learn from the Word of God that the “aliens” reported today are deceptive entities, wicked hosts and false gods who wish only to destroy those they come in contact with. (Yes, even the tall blonde Nordics – “made to look like mortal man… and reptiles” from the scripture above. They’re playing “good cop, bad cop” people, and we’re being had.)” [6].

            In this context, the phenomenon of “alien abduction” requires consideration. The 1991 Roper poll claimed approximately 4 million people in the USA experienced alien abduction [7].

            Typically, in an alien abduction, people claim to be paralyzed by an unknown force, transported to an unknown location, examined and probed (with a special focus on genitals and rectum) by unknown creatures, but returned to their original and known location in a state of amnesia – without any memories of the abduction encounter. But, when placed under hypnosis, these people narrate their alien abduction experiences.

            The CE4 Research Group [8], researching into alien abduction for many years, posits the “Demonic Hypothesis” to explain alien abduction:

            A. The experience of “Alien Abductions” can be terminated or stopped in the name and authority of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

            B. The abilities of fallen angels, described in the Bible, match the experiences from alien abductions. Paradox Brown, the author of “The Bible, Physics, and the Abilities of Fallen Angels” says, “…the Bible teaches that fallen angels can victimize people with their ability to cause dreams and Visions, using these to scare and terrify, even to the point of severe traumatization from them… fallen angels can also cause False Dreams and False Visions to communicate a lying or deceptive message, false information, to a person with the intent that the person might become a false prophet, who shares the false message as truth… after looking at several “alien abduction” cases it seems that the abilities of Fallen angels to cause False Visions (and all that entails) and terrifying dreams, as well as elements of Physical manifestation, are sufficient to explain what abductees experience”[9].

            C. Those abducted by aliens, report of anti-biblical messages from the aliens, which is the character of the fallen angels.

            The CE4 research conclusions are credible since it has worked with over 400 people with alien abduction experience. Thus it is a reasonable conclusion that alien experiences are demonic.

            Similarly, when aliens are compared to angels in the Bible, the aliens match the description of the fallen angels, “True biblical angels would help, not harm, an individual, but aliens are notorious for leaving people physically injured, confused, scared, and paranoid…“Aliens” are indeed angels, but they are not the good angels which scripture tells of. Their actions, abilities and doctrines most resemble that of the fallen angels who have deceived and spiritually enslaved mankind at different points all throughout history – who work against the purposes of God, and the interests of all humanity.” [10]

            To conclude, the following information is in our domain:

            1. Some secular scientists consider UFOs as demonic.

            2. Having studied 400+ alien abduction experiences, CE4 research posits alien abduction experiences as demonic.

            3. Aliens match the description of fallen angels.

            4. Extraterrestrial hypothesis faces serious scientific, technological and logical problems.

            5. Therefore, it is highly reasonable and responsible to consider UFOs and aliens as demonic. Alternatively, we cannot discard the notion that UFOs are demons.

            The Bible and Christian research posits UFOs as demonic. Therefore, serious dabbling in UFOs could lead people away from Christ. Kenneth Samples implies this notion, “…we should stress that historic Christianity provides powerful and livable answers to life’s ultimate questions, and those answers are more convincing than anything UFO religions can provide” [11].
