A Christian counter-cult ministry will hold a symposium as part of the upcoming Roswell UFO Festival (July 03 to July 05, 2009), putting its own angle on the ongoing debate concerning the mysterious existence or otherwise of unidentified flying objects and alien species.
Amid all the fun and mystery of this year's festival, which includes the rumoured appearance of legendary band Jefferson Starship, the Christian group known as 'Alien Resistance', will outline its Biblical philosophy that all UFOs are in fact the "evil spirits" of the Bible, according to a May 12 statement.

LOL, I love how when things change and the bible is shown as at best a copy of older writings, the church just changes its stance and 'interpretations' so that they are still relevant.

The problem that we have is that religion has played a massive part of people lives for centuries, with whats been going on recently I am convinced that we, the human race are on the brink of finding out once and for all that we are not alone on this planet, but what effect will it have on the people that devote their life to their religion.

It probably won't alter the belief systems of the devout. It never ceases to amaze me the sort of clothes some people are prepared to wear because of their religion, as well some of the strange activities. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the freedom to choose whether or not to practice a religion.
Many religions are about Power & Money for those involved in running them at senior levels, so I've no doubt that as, when, and if, extra-terrestrial craft land in full view of the public at large, and the crew disembark, religious leaders will denounce them.
Of course, there is another aspect to consider too. We are 3rd dimensional beings, and more advanced beings from other planets in our particular universe, are likely to be from higher dimensions, and thus their atomic structure will vibrate at a higher frequency than ours. That means that unless they are able to adjust their frequency down to ours, we won't be able to see them.
It will have to alter the belief system though won't it? I mean would it not be a contradictary in terms?
I agree They are about money and power, everything in life is about money and power (strange that) but will the religous leaders be able to carry it off or will the majority wake up as we enter a new spiritual age? OR will the spiritual leaders adopt the encounters and new findings into their teachings and sterr their religion in another direction?
Agreed, obviously you have been watching Carl Sagans shapes videos.
I told her that I believe in beings other than ourselves, she laughed and gave me the look!

I don't know where you live, what circles you move in, or what your beliefs are, but no everything in life is NOT about power and money.
