I have read several articles and a couple of books that have explicitly connected UFOs to the bible. While I certainly have not developed a well
informed opinion on this subject, my answer to the posted question is leaning toward a tentative, "yes."
Ezekiel and the "wheel"
Ezekiel 1:16 (NIV)
This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like chrysolite, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel
intersecting a wheel.
Now, it certainly seems to be a description of a mechanical, rather than an ethereal device to me. I suppose that it could be representative of the
"Tree of Life" spoken of in the Kabbalah, I don't know.
Ezekiel 1:4 (NIV)
I looked, and I saw a windstorm coming out of the north--an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light. The center of the
fire looked like glowing metal
Seems to indicate an object about ready to blast off, perhaps.
One of the biggest puzzles about the birth of Christ is the star of Bethlehem.
The bible states:
Matthew 2: 9-11 (NIV)
After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where
the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and
worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.
Now, I am going to ask a question that I am sure all of us have heard asked before. When did stars quit moving? I mean, it's common knowledge that
stars do not move. So, if this "star" of Bethlehem was moving, when was it that stars quit moving in the universe?
There are quite a few other strange implications in the bible about "cloudlike" objects and such taking people into heaven,even Christ himself. Now,
don't get the idea that I am implying that Christ flew to heaven in a UFO, but I just think the terminology is somewhat odd.
What is all of your opinions on this subject? Like I said, I don't really have a well formed opinion about it, other than to say that there is a
possibility that the bible does mention, perhaps astral craft in its pages. Astral, as meaning spiritual aircraft.
