Just the other day I was talking to a friend, and while catching up on life, our conversation somehow ended up on the subject of UFOs and aliens. I really respect my friend and his views, but he said something that made absolutely no sense to me at the time. In this case, I believe his views that aliens don’t exist is somewhat skewed.
With a blog on alien abductions and UFO sightings, I certainly do come across a lot of skeptics as well as staunch believers in the phenomenon so I’m not surprised when I hear someone’s opinion about their beliefs either way.
Aliens Don’t Exist Because It’s Not in the Bible
But when he emphatically told me that he didn’t believe in extraterrestrials, UFOs or aliens without even a second of pause or blink of an eye, I was sort of surprised, and like most people would do I asked him why not. His statement – because extraterrestrials are not in the Bible.
Now I’m pretty much a jokester most of the time and laughingly took the bait even though his answer is not good enough in my opinion. I mean, how can you make such an all inconclusive statement that it’s not real just because it’s not in the Bible?!
He continued to speak about extraterrestrials and aliens and that, to him, they seemed to be manufactured from the “will of Satan.” Okay, about this point, I’m patiently trying not to lose my patience with his line of thinking.
You Believe in Angels and Demons, Right?
So I follow up with another question – the “apparently you seem to believe in angels and demons since they’re in the Bible, don’t you?” To which he nodded, and I asked point blank, “well, where do you think angels and demons come from? Are they from heaven or earth?
So the short version. He explained that angels are from heaven and demons from a pit in the earth. He said demons were once angels, but Lucifer (Satan), the archangel wanted to be God, and well there was only room for one. So, the real God cast him down to earth to the pit with 1/3 of his fellow angels that supported him.
Interesting story, but again I asked where did they come from – here on earth or from the heavens? No answer.
What Does the Word Extraterrestrial Really Mean?
I mentioned the word “extraterrestrial” means not from this world or beyond our earth. Any life that doesn’t originate from the earth is extraterrestrial, and the word also happens to be interchangeable with aliens that humans consider more advanced and not from Earth. And then I asked, “Now would you say that angels or demons fit this profile?”
Immediately he replies, “no, no, no.” God is not an alien or a space creature from outer space. There are no little green men or small grey aliens. “Okay that’s fair,” I said, “you can believe what you want, but tell me, have you ever seen an angel or demon? Do you know what one looks like?
He said that angels are all around us and disguise themselves as humans to interact in our lives. That was somewhat reassuring, but again I asked, “Have you ever see an angel or demon?”
“Angels and demons are not extraterrestrials,” he said, “they are just different.”
Different. So goes one man’s answer about the subject of alien life on other planets. Out of all the Bible verses and indoctrination, there is no room in his personal belief structure or religion that the potential for aliens exist.
Yet when confronted with something very much supernatural and ethereal such as an angel or demon, there is no clarity in thought or explanation. They are just different.
But for me, it is clear that angels and demons are extraterrestrial.
It certainly is a contradiction that if you believe in angels and demons, that are by definition not of this world, then it isn’t too far a stretch to admit that aliens might possibly exist as well. Are some people so naïve to believe that we are the only creations in this entire universe? That the Creator couldn’t have made anyone or anything else besides us here on Earth?
So, angels and demons, are they real? Do aliens exist? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
