McLean v Arkansas and the Demonic Hypothesis of UFO

I was reminded recently that the Demonic Hypothesis of UFO played a role during 1981’s McLean v Arkansas Board of Education court case when it was used by evolutionists to discredit Dr. Norman Geisler’s testimony. On March 1, 1982, fellow creationist Dr. Duane Gish wrote: “In an attempt to discredit Geisler’s testimony, the ACLU lawyer…

Is ‘Oumuamua an Alien Spacecraft?

Recently, two Harvard university researchers proposed that a cigar-shaped astronomical object dubbed “‘Oumuamua” was actually an alien probe ship. Two things need to be said about that theory up front. This isn’t likely. And this isn’t a new theory. The trouble with Oumuamua is that it is a type of astronomical object we’ve never encountered…

Jesus Was An Abductee! Chris Ward on Alien Abductions

The late Pastor Chris Ward (1948-2015) was one of the presenters of the First Christian Symposium on Aliens in July of 2009. The Symposium sparked a new wave of interest in the Demonic Hypothesis of UFO, resuscitated from charismatic deliverance ministry holdouts of the Satanic Panic. Prior to that in 1999, he founded AlienResistance.org with…

Are Cell Phones and Drones Foiling Satan’s Nefarious UFO Deception?

Christian UFO experts espousing the Demonic Hypothesis of UFO assure us that UFOs are a Satanic deception, yet, if this is the case, why are UFO reports in such a steep decline? The fact that they are statistically in decline is undeniable at this point. According to MUFON statistician David C. Korts: “There definitely has…

Isaac Watts, Extraterrestrials and Isaiah 45:18

Dr. Danny Faulkner has written a post in which he takes issue with the pro-extraterrestrial opinion of Isaac Watts, the “Godfather of English Hymnody.” In his lifetime, Watts composed around 750 hymns, including “Joy to the World,” “Alas! and Did My Saviour Bleed,” “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,” and “I Sing The Mighty Power…

The Fermi Paradox: Looking for Smoke Signals in a Cell Phone Universe

The Fermi Paradox has plagued folks who ponder the possibility of intelligent extraterrestrial life ever since Enrico Fermi asked the question, “Where is everybody?” I think it’s time we admit how presumptuous his question is. Recently, I read another xenophobic article by Gary Bates, entitled (rather unimaginatively) The Fermi Paradox. One of his points is…

Climate Change, Aliens and Starting Points

In a post called, “Climate Change Killed the Aliens!“, Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis makes the following comments: “It seems extraterrestrial aliens make the news quite frequently (despite the fact that they don’t exist!). Every few weeks there’s a new study about why we supposedly haven’t found them, when we will find them, or…

Dissolving the Fermi Paradox? Guess Again

A new study by Anders Sandberg, Eric Drexler and Toby Ord at the Future of Humanity Institute (Oxford) suggests that we are probably alone in the observable universe. The study, entitled “Dissolving the Fermi Paradox,” was published on June 6 on Arxiv, a server for sharing science papers that have yet to be peer-reviewed. That…

The Fermi Paradox and SETI’s Dead Reckoning?

A new study attempting to refine or update the Drake Equation, a simplistic formula for calculating the number of detectable intelligent civilizations in our galaxy, has concluded that if we pick up alien radio transmissions, “the transmissions arriving at Earth may come from distant civilizations long extinct, while civilizations still alive are sending signals yet…
