UFO in Bible?

  1. Feb 16, 2004 #1
    Recently i read a Bible because i heard that you can find UFO in it. Well I think i did. I found it in chapter called "Hesekiel" . If you have a Bible at home then please read this chapter and tell me what do you think of it. Also i found UFO in Relevation of Johannes.

    Is it possible that The God is really an alien?

    No, I don't think God is an alien - but from what I understand, the Mormons do.

    This is the "Zoa" =also in "Daniel"
    (and as you mentioned, The Revelation of John)

    These are "Visions" -IMO

    There is a book called "Ezekiel's Spaceship" (?)
    by a NASA engineer.....likely out of print, but popular,
    early '70's.

    The Raelians 'believe' Elohim (God of Genesis) is a 'Spaceman'

    The 'founder ' of the Black Muslims has written along the same line of thought......this idea is actually 'popular' among numerous 'cults'......and on the other hand there's popular 'belief' the UFOs are entirely of 'demonic' orgin.....and planning a 'fake' Second Coming of Christ.

    Whatever you're thinking--you're not alone!

    If ET is here then this gets interesting. Since I don't know if he is I prefer not to speculate. I will say that even many of the devout ET believers fail to offer any specific definitions for concepts like "trans-dimensional beings". I have wondered at times if this might be similar to notions such as incorporeal or spiritual. Then of course we have the good vs evil problem to consider.

    From the Myth and Mystics Napster above:

    An interesting site. A detailed look at angels:

    Don't have time to read all those links, but the christiananswers.net link is extemely faithful to what little the Bible actually sys about angels. Most of the people hear and see about them is not Bible-based.

    As for the overall topic of this thread, as someone already said, the moving throne in Ezekiel is a vision; Ezekiel didn't say it was actually in a real place. So it's clearly intended figuratively. But, of course, angels can be called ETs or aliens. Strictly speaking that's accurate, even though they're non-corporeal.

    American Survey on Alien Visitors
    November 29, 2000 08:32 CDT
    A recent poll by ABC News showed that 25 percent of Americans believe aliens have visited the earth. Two thirds of that percentage admit that it's just speculation on their part. One third, however, believe evidence exists of alien visits, ranging from Ezekiel to Roswell, NM.

    A full 47 percent believe intelligent life exists in a physical form on other planets, but 45 percent do not believe this to be the case. The demographic differences are interesting: men are more likely than women to believe in aliens, 51 to 43 percent. Younger adults are more likely to believe. Adults with less education are not convinced, nor are Republicans.

    How come nobody is mentioning the fiery chariot of Elijah?
    Hasn’t any one here really read and studied the bible writings for themselves?

    Now there is a real sleeping pill, the “who begat who’s”. [zz)]

    Use a word search to find interesting tid bits of information. Remember that it is written in very old and non-technical languages, so a “fiery chariot drawn by fiery horses” would obviously not mean the cart and horses were burning. Words like fire were used for lights at night also. Your word searches will take time to develop, but then you will start to see what the book really talks about. There is a whole lot more in there besides UFO’s. The very reason why the ET’s would be here is in there.
