Jesus Crucified on Countless Alien Worlds?

Dr. Danny Faulkner’s (Answers in Genesis) article “Is Belief in Alien Life Harmless?” made rounds again recently. I’ve already answered Dr. Faulkner’s article, detailing the logical and Scriptural errors it contains; however I wanted to comment on a peculiar misrepresentation of the views of former US President John Adams. I could note of course that it…

Alien Salvation: Answering A Cartoon Argument Against ETs

It sounds like an old joke: “Superman, Chewbacca and Spock walk into a bar…” Except in this case, it’s a cartoon strip by fellow creationist Dan Lietha, so no bar… and Superman’s reading the Bible. The animated strip ostensibly seeks to answer the question: “Is the Idea of Alien Life in Outer Space Biblical?” Fair…

Aliens Won’t Eat Us & Other Evolutionary Assumptions About Extraterrestrials 

A new book of essays edited by Jim Al-Khalili aims to give insight on aliens, space exploration, transhumanism, robot overlords and a whole host of other related subjects to a public saturated with misinformation and misunderstanding resulting from sci-fi tropes. A recent Time.com article by Sarah Begley looked at 5 of the myths that Aliens: The World’s Leading…

CreationWiki: Aliens Would Cause Believers to Abandon the Bible

“We can safely say however, that if alien spaceships in fact landed on Earth… the reality of alien interaction would be undeniable to all those who dwell on earth. At this point, we would expect all Bible believers to set their Bibles aside and never give God a second thought.” The preceding quote is from…

Is the Search for ET Rebellion Against God?

I was researching the history of modern creationists thought on exotheology recently, when I came across Ken Ham’s earliest article on the search for extraterrestrial life. The article, entitled Any Little Green Men Out There?, originally appeared in Creation 15, no 1 (December 1992): 14-16. In that article, Ken Ham wrote of the search for extraterrestrial…

How Many Christians/Creationists Believe In Aliens?

A lot of people ask me just how many Christians actually believe in extraterrestrial life. Of course, creationists also want to know how belief in extraterrestrial life compares amongst creationists and evolutionists.  These are excellent questions. In general, we estimate the number by noting that, for example, 75 percent of Americans self-identified as Christians and…

Alien Fear Factor: Do Christians Have Anything to Fear From Hostile ETs? 

Recently Stephen Hawking has been in the news for saying that we should look for aliens and listen in on them, but avoid contact if we want to avoid extinction. His statement is part of an ongoing discussion over the advisability of METI (Messaging to Extraterrestrial Intelligence), also known as Active SETI, which refers to…

Why the Search for Exoplanets Should Be Encouraged

The news of several Earth-sized planets orbiting a small, dim star called TRAPPIST-1 fell like a bombshell this past few days. The announcement was well orchestrated, complete with a 360 image of an exoplanet’s surface,  a more mundane image of the same, a little video, and even a travel poster. It was admittedly overkill, but…

Why Isaiah 45:18 Says Nothing About Aliens

It’s one of the most cited verses amongst those touting anti-alien dogma. Just a couple days ago during an Answers News segment with Ken Ham, Bodie Hodge quoted it to claim that aliens were impossible. So how does this verse allegedly make the possibility of extraterrestrial life impossible? Isaiah 45:18 reads: For thus saith the LORD that…

ET & the Evolution Connection?

In his Amazon bestseller Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates tries to make an intrinsic connection between a belief in extraterrestrial life and the theory of microbes-to-man evolution. The implication is that a belief in the possibility of alien life is the result of an evolutionary worldview rather than a Biblical worldview. Since…
