More Than Lights In The Sky

On this site, when we discuss lights in the sky, we are usually referring to UFOs; however, today we will be examining a Bible passage that is often twisted to exclude the possibility of extraterrestrial life.  I’m speaking of Genesis 1:14-19, which relates the events of the 4th Day of the Creation Week: 14 And…

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…

LA Marzulli Questions My Qualifications To Weigh In On the UFO Phenomenon 

Apparently LA Marzulli, author of the Nephilim Trilogy and the Watchers video series, does not think I’m qualified to weigh in on the UFO phenomenon.  I reached out to him after examining his reasoning so for promoting the idea of a “Coming Great Deception” in the form of fallen angels disguised as extraterrestrials. I was…

The Reckoning: An Emerging Crisis In Biblical Exotheology 

Modern exotheology risks repeating the error of the Galileo debacle. Since those who don’t know their history are doomed to repeat it, let’s start at the beginning of exotheology. The first recorded discussion of the possibility of extraterrestrial life comes from the 5th century BC Atomists. The Atomists were deistic; they believed that the universe…

Space Brothers: Are Intelligent ETs Made In God’s Image Too?

Once upon the 50s and 60s, the Contactee movement referred to aliens as “Space Brothers.” The name was rooted in the idea that extraterrestrials were here to help us out. At the very least, they were here to warn us that we were in danger of annihilating ourselves via nuclear war, ecological disaster or some…

Would the Existence of Aliens Make God a Polygamist?

Some people think that the Big Picture of the Bible makes the existence of intelligent aliens life impossible. They charge that the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence  (ETI) would make nonsense of the Gospel and make God a polygamist.  For example, Creation Ministries International’s Facebook chief exotheology expert, Gary Bates, wrote the following in an article…

Christians Will Colonize the Cosmos!

Fellow Christian author E. Stephen Burnet has written a thought provoking post over at SpeculativeFaith.com, entitled Will Christians Colonize the Cosmos?  He correctly notes that Christian objections to the idea that we will colonize space center on our eschatology. Basically, our End Times theology has resulted in a geocentric futurology: we don’t think we’ll get far…

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…
