Harold L Armstrong’s Argument Against Corporal Living Beings Living Outside Earth

The June 1970 edition (Vol. 7 No. 1) of the Creation Research Society Quarterly stressed cosmology. One of journal’s contributors was Harold L. Armstrong (1921-1985). Armstrong was an early member of the Creation Research Society and a Professor of Physics at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada. He began the Quarterly’s first regular column, “Comments on…

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…

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…

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…

The Devil Lives in the Moon

On November 3, 1957, the Texas town of Levelland saw a UFO that stalled the motors of five vehicles, caused a man to faint and generally alarmed everyone. The phantom object was described as “200 feet long, shaped like an egg and was lit up like it was on fire – but looked more like…

Is a Rare Earth a Powerful Test of the Creation/Evolution Models of Origins?

Dr. Danny Faulkner has received criticism on this site for proposing that an absence of extraterrestrial life is a powerful test of the creation model of origins against the evolution model. He expresses this belief most clearly in an article entitled, “Can Life Exist on Other Planets?” published in the October 2009 issue of the…

The Devil’s UFO Sleeper Agents

Clifford Wilson made his name in Ufology with Crash Go the Chariots (1972), a book specifically written to answer Erich von Daniken’s Chariots of the Gods? (1968) and his Ancient Alien Astronaut theory. In 1974, Wilson wrote a new book based on his further investigation of the UFO phenomenon, UFOs and their mission impossible. Wilson’s solution was…

Where Do Aliens Come From?

We used to believe that intelligent alien life might be found within our very Solar system, perhaps even on the Moon itself; however, as we continue to explore the cosmos, the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis has undergone a steady territorial retreat. The Great Moon Hoax of 1835 was disproven by further telescopic surveys.  Mars and Venus were…

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…
