In Which Ken Ham Continues To Promote the Lie that Isaiah 45:18 Says ANYTHING About Aliens

Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis has recently “written” a post (with the help of the oft-times half-cocked “AiG’s research team”) called “Study: Mars “More Uninhabitable Than Previously Thought.” Apparently, a new study [“Perchlorates on Mars enhance the bacteriocidal effects of UV light.” Scientific Reports 7, Article number: 4662 (2017) doi:10.1038/s41598-017-04910-3] has concluded that Mars is currently more unsuitable…

Guy Malone’s “Doctrine of Stated Intent” and Other Bad Arguments Against Aliens 

Over the past few days, I’ve been watching presentations from the Roswell UFO Festival 2017: “70 Years Later: Modern Challenges to the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis.” This particular post concerns a presentation given by RoswellMission.org founder and conference organizer Guy Malone on June 30, 2917, entitled, “Are Aliens Demons? Evidences That Suggest ‘Yes.’” While I may comment…

Why ET Probably Doesn’t Need To Be Saved Anyway

By and large, Biblical creationists are anti-alien and they think the Bible forbids the existence of extraterrestrials. I blame Gary Bates. Gary Bates is the CEO of Creation Ministries International and, more importantly, the author of the best-selling book, Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection. While there were anti-alien articles around before his book…

CreationWiki’s Bad Argument Against ‘Any Other Earths’

CreationWiki believes that the Bible teaches that there aren’t “any other Earths.” At least, that’s the argument presented in their Extraterrestrial Life article: Consider this well-known verse, which Astronaut Jim Lovell, one of the first three men to orbit the moon, read aloud on that occasion: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1…

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…
