I have felt the same thing. That Satan is behind "aliens" and things like that. It's the only thing that makes sense to me.

From what I understand, the anti-christ is supposed to come to power right after the rapture takes place. He is supposed to "explain away" what happened to all the missing people. With all the believers gone, it wouldn't that difficult a task to convince those left behind that the others had been "abducted", especially with the recent increase of ufo sightings. After that all the anti-christ has to do is convince people that the aliens are coming back and the entire world needs to join forces together to fight this unknown enemy. With that, he would become the leader of both peoples and military.

if the govt starts using "holograms" to reveal UFO's as part of Satan's endgame... then that would also mean that Satan, or the antichrist, is already a powerful member of the government, and I don't think thats true.
the antichrist is supposed to be someone that everyone admires, someone kind, and when he does become all powerful, it will be like a utopia on earth. That is how he will deceive people. or at least thats what i've read and been told.
The first half of the 7 years of tribulation will be like a heaven on earth, and that when he will use the mark of the beast to start taking souls... then, the 2nd half of the 7 years of tribulation will be like hell on earth, hunting down all those that did not join his army... until the great appearance when god brings heaven down to earth and banishes satan to hell for 1000 years.
This all occurs after the rapture of course...
and thats how its written in revelations... if you believe that sort of thing.
hope that clears a few things up

Also I have no idea if a rapture will even take place. Ever since D. L. Moody suggested it in 1835 it has been a hot debate and nowadays almost excepted without question. Just think on this... prior to 1835 NO ONE ever mentioned any rapture. In the end it doesn't matter... as long as you accept Christ, rapture or not, you will be ok.

So if aliens do make themselves known to us.... And it becomes apparent that God doesnt exist.... then.... does that mean we'll have alot more Raliens running around?
Ive seen and spoken to some raliens in the city. and after the convosations, i had a good laugh at the topic... tho wouldnt it be weird if they are right? haha

ok fair enough...thanks for the reply.
i know its hard to speculate on something like this. but i believe it is important that we discuss this until the truth can be obtained.
i have said before i believe it will be a combination of illusion/delusion and real flesh and blood aliens to make this believable.
the point of this thread is to see what people believe about ufo"s being an illusion.
