"But the UFO phenomenon simply does not behave like extraterrestrial visitors. It actually molds itself in order to fit a given culture."
- John Ankerberg,
The Facts on UFOs and Other Supernatural Phenomena, p. 10
"Human beings are under the control of a strange force that bends them in absurd ways, forcing them to play a role in a bizarre game of deception."
- Dr. Jacques Vallee, Messengers of Deception, p. 20
"We are dealing with a multidimensional paraphysical phenomenon which is largely indigenous to planet earth."
- Brad Steiger, [cited in] Blue Book Files Released in Canadian UFO Report, Vol. 4, No. 4, 1977, p. 20

So many question....
If you can be abducted by invisible, secret aliens, without your consent or (sometimes knowledge) doesn't this negate "free will?" If we don't have free will how can we be redeemed?
If you truely have a personal living relationship with the "Lord Jesus Christ" why would he allow aliens to sneak up on you and abduct you? What if they hit you over the head with a laser beam lamp and knock you out before you have the chance to "call on him?"
Would Jesus protect you if you were being mugged? Would you tell the mugger "Get thee behind me satan?" Is protecting you part of God's plan?

Ok, I don't want to keep repeating myself but Catholicism is not a faith - it is a religion just like Buddhism. Catholics are not Christians because they have their own sets of rules outside the bible. They confess their sins to man (priests. pope etc) when Christians confess their sins to Jesus - which is stated by God's law (the bible or his word).
Now none of this will make sense to you if you are not Christian, because it is faith based.
People who believe in alien abductions have faith because they may not have been abducted themselves, but certainly believe a person who has said they have been. Which is the point of my topic.

Depends what you mean by "believe" in them. I believe they exist. Just like I believe angler fishes exist despite never seeing one and likely never will.
If the earth were this large "." on your screen, then our 1 galaxy is the size of this entire planet. There's hundreds of billions of galaxies. 97% of the total species ever to exist on this single planet have gone extinct.
= 99.0^infinity that extraterrestrials exist.
You can believe in Jesus, I'm just saying Jesus won't save you from anything, based off my previous post which if you read carefully and try to address individually, you will find it's flawless.edit on 14-1-2011 by MasonicFantom because: (no reason given)
