America Divided Cut

The new American religion of UFOs; Belief in aliens is like faith in religion — and may come to replace it. ‘They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.’ Psalm 78:49-50. He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending EVIL ANGELS among them. He made a way to his anger; he SPARED NOT their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence. More than 50% (5) of American adults and over 60 (6) percent of young Americans believe in intelligent extraterrestrial ‘alien’ life. This tracks pretty closely with belief in God.

The Coming ‘Strong Delusion’. Same ‘Lie or Delusions’ for 6,000 (6) years and during EVERY EPOCH, including the coming seven (7) year tribulation. ‘Because they love not the truth or the world of God, God will send among them a ‘strong or great delusion’ so they can be damned.’

Psalm 78:49-50. He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them. He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence.

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 And then shall that Wicked be revealed [Man of Lawlessness, Son of Perdition, Beast, 8th King, Prince, First Rider / White Horseman, Antichrist], whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming [Christs second physical coming to earth at the end of the Great Tribulation]: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (Emphasis added, mine.)

A short Biblical look at ‘Fallen Angels / sons of God:’

There is no such thing as ‘aliens.’ Fallen angels in defiled, false, counterfeit, deceptive, grotesque satanic flesh appear as ‘aliens.’ Satan has made a mockery of ‘the imagers (human body) of God’ by attempting to duplicate God’s created body of man into a defiled, unclean, fleshly form that is a sick imager of Satan.  Different ‘caste or ranking’ of angels manifest in different physical defiled forms.  Just as the human spirit must dwell in flesh to exist in the physical world, some lower rankings of the demonic spirit realm must dwell in defiled flesh to exist in the physical world or physical dimension outside of the spiritual dimension. Once holy and bright in spiritual appearance, fallen angels are now grotesque, ugly and dark because of iniquity (just like Satan) and manifest as such. They now represent the likeness of Satan and some of his attributes, including lies, deception, advanced knowledge and a willingness to accept the ‘worship’ of men (as in antiquity). These particular ‘fallen angels’ in Satan’s army are the ‘foot soldiers’ who work on demand and at the bidding of Satan and/or other fallen angels in higher orders. They are the ‘lowest’ of the angelic realm in terms of rank, power, attributes, exercising of will and influence over men. They do NOT have power or influence over nations, states, cities, weather or other aspects of God’s physical creation. They carry out the ‘grunt’ work of Satan’s master plan. In Satan’s plan, those fallen angels (believed to be ‘aliens’) are sent to deceive men (a ‘great or strong delusion’).

Men want to believe in aliens, are lustful of advanced technology and knowledge for military purposes, and are ‘deluded’ into thinking that aliens are here to save them (or at least to offer them ‘help’) in tackling the various crisis occurring over the seven (7) year tribulation. The idea or belief that aliens could really be something entirely evil, Biblically speaking, is ‘preposterous’ to men. To those who do not love the truth, God will send a ‘strong delusion.’ The fallen angels come, not as man’s saviors, but for man’s destruction. Only Christ saves men spiritually and physically. Aliens are a lie or a delusion that men lustily believe in because they don’t want to believe the truth about this particular aspect of God’s creation that rebelled against the established order of created, spiritual beings. Yet, God still is in control of His creation, even over the fallen angels and Satan. God can, and does, use fallen angels to carry out His will, depending on His purpose. ‘A broken tool can still have some use.’

Rankings of both Holy and Fallen Angels (Highest to Lowest). Fallen angels were once holy angels, until they rebelled with Lucifer/Satan against God and His established order:

Cherubim

Thrones

Dominions

Virtues

Powers

Principalities

Archangels

Angels

Revelation 12:7-12  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. [‘Angels’ are referenced three – 3 times, emphasis and intensity. Yes, there are evil, fallen angels, sons of God, or ‘Watchers.’)

Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air [Satan, Dragon, Devil] the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against  powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Ephesians 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Colossians 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Psalm 78:49-50. He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them. He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;

2 Thessalonians 2

2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness

These seven (7) verses indicate that a ‘strong delusion’ will be sent to men sometime during the seven (7) year tribulation. We know this because the first three (3) verses deal with the time period when the Holy Spirit (that holds evil at bay) is removed from the world and the ‘wicked’ man of sin or lawlessness rises up on the world stage. Verse 8 indicates that this is the same wicked man that will be destroyed at Christ’s physical, second coming to earth at the very last day of the seven (7) year tribulation. Men, during the seven (7) year tribulation are deceived because they don’t love the truth God gave mankind in the form of Jesus Christ. They are deceived spiritually (mystery religion) and are unrighteous (not saved) and perish because of this. They don’t want anything to do with the truth offered to them by Christ’s salvation. They deny Christ and his offer of salvation. They don’t love the truth (Christ) and the whole idea of needing salvation. They don’t want to be saved and don’t like the idea of having to be saved. They have pleasure (joy) in following their own false religions, practices and hedonistic joys and are damned because they forcefully and willingly reject Christ. As such, God will send them a ‘strong delusion’ (fallen angels in the deluded guise or form of ‘aliens’). There is nothing new under the sun. Fallen angels existed before the creation of mankind, and have worked for Satan, ever since his fall, into deceiving men over the course of many ancient civilizations (on into this current epoch.) God sent Christ to save mankind. Men reject Christ. God sends fallen angels to damn men. Men accept fallen angels (aliens). Men die. Simple. It is not a great mystery, as some would believe or think impossible.

 (Note: the ‘sons of God’ are those ‘holy’ angels who had become ‘fallen’ angels, after rebelling with Lucifer/Satan against God. The physically giant hybrid offspring of fallen angels and women are known as Nephilim. This unholy union resulted in a gross corruption of human genetics. Think ‘Goliath’ in the story of David and Goliath. After the flood, this occurred again and there are many scriptures relating to where God instructed the Israelites to kill Nephilim offspring. By corrupting human flesh, Satan was trying to destroy and defile the genetic line that would ultimately bring Christ.).)

Genesis 6 King James Version (KJV)

6 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God [fallen angels / ‘watches’] saw the daughters of men that they were fair [sexually attractive]; and they took [kidnapped, raped] them wives [women] of all [more than one] which they chose [abducted]. (Emphasis, translation added, mine.)

3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [Nephilim, evil seed offspring] children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. (Emphasis, translation added, mine.)

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

50,000,000 (5) Fallen / Evil Angels under Satan’s Authority:

  1. “And his tail drew a third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour he child as soon as it was born.” (Rev. 12:4). (Emphasis added).
  2. … “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Rev. 12:7-9). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: Five (5) x 10 (ten) = (evil number of Satan) X (allness or physical completeness on earth). = 5 x 10m = 50,000,000. The double emphasis in the two verses solidly confirms the fact that Satan is kicked out of heaven along with his evil angelic cohorts. Interestingly, all these evil angels are no longer given access to the heavens, along with Satan. Instead of being allowed to reside in heaven, they are ‘kicked to the curb,’ otherwise known as the earth and have to reside here, until their lake of fire judgement.

Rev. 12:7 indicates that “Michael and his holy angels” fought “Satan and his evil angels“.  Satan did not prevail because Michaels forces far surpassed those of Satan’s, by a 2:1 ratio.

Here’s the math on the number of angels (Rev. 5:10); ten thousand (10,000) times (x) ten thousand (10,000) = one hundred million (100,000,000) plus (+) thousands (1,000) times thousands (1,000). 1,000 x 1,000 = 1 million (1,000,000). Thus, we arrive at 101,000,000 (100,000,000 + 1,000,000). The description of this number by John, indicates that he “beheld and heard” this number. Rev. 7:11 indicates that this number is “all of the angels”, not some … not a few … not a group of special angels or some subset of the angelic realm, but … ALL angels. I interpret this litrally means 101,000,000 million angels surrounding the throne. The throne room of God is big enough to accommodate this many angels, creatures and the immeasurable multitudes of redeemed souls. The scene John describes is the largest spiritual gathering of God’s creation in history, either side of heaven.

An interesting side note of mathematics, for contemplation or consideration. Rev. 12:4 indicates that a third (1/3 or 33% or .33) of the angels of heaven rebelled against God and were thrown out of heaven, along with the ringleader or instigator of their coup … Satan. If we know 101,000,000 ‘good or holy’ angels are still in heaven worshipping God, then they must (mathematically speaking) be roughly equivalent to two thirds (2/3 or 66% or .66) of the total number of angels created by God. So, what is the original number of angels created by God, before the Satanic/Angelic rebellion? Answer: 151,000,000.

151,000,000 x .6666666 (decimal equivalent to the number of holy angels)  = 100,666,656 or 101,000,000  holy angels (rounded).

151,000,000 x .3333333 (decimal equivalent to the number of fallen angels) = 49,999,995 or 50,000,000 rebellious angels (rounded).

For the mathematically inclined, please notice that I calculated these total numbers using seven digit spaces to the right of the decimal point. We know that, mathematically speaking, the number seven (7) indicates divinely determined completeness as to God’s purpose or plan. Using a multiplier seven digits to the right of the decimal point, gets as close as we can to being able to understand the completeness of God’s decision to create the number of ‘good, holy’ angels stated in Rev. 5:11. All of my calculations are based upon my very literal interpretation of the number of angels indicated in Rev. 5:11.

For mathematical nit-pickers, numbers these large are usually rounded the nearest million. Even if the original number of total angels was much greater or significantly higher… say 100 billion, or 100 trillion, the percentages (%) of holy and fallen angels stay the same. In any case, the number of ‘good guys’ outnumber the ‘bad guys’ by an easily to understand ratio of 2:1! Two good, holy angels for every one bad, rebellious angel. Why would God only create 151 million angels, or more? Everything in creation is finite in nature (no matter how it is measured). This is true, no matter how big the number of something seems to be to us. Our view of size or greatness of number, is a matter of perspective. We are finite creatures and have a finite perspective. The only thing infinite is God. God does not create anything greater than himself, thus, everything has to be limited or finite in which he creates. This is true considering the number of created angels. I believe the number of created angels to be a fixed number, as we are given no indication that angels procreate in heaven. While mankind is based on earth and has mortal bodies, we have to procreate to replace each generation of man that dies off. Not so with angelic beings. Once we receive our glorified bodies at the rapture/harpazo and see Jesus as he is, our bodies will have become eternal and will never die or breakdown, hence, there will be no need for us to procreate in heaven. Both holy and fallen angels were created with an eternal existance.

‘UNCLEAN SPIRITS’ are the spirits of the dead, GENETICALLY UNCLEAN HYBRID NEPHILIM, created by the unholy impregnation of human women by FALLEN ANGELS. Fallen angels are NOT unclean spirits. UNCLEAN refers to the genetically corrupted or defiled, ‘as in the days of Noah.’

10 (5+5) Biblical references or descriptions of ‘unclean spirits’. Those spirits who lust (even to this day) to possess a human body, in order to experience the ‘sensual’ that they enjoyed while existing in the abomination, defiled or corrupted form of the human/demonic NEPHILIM. The ‘FALLEN ANGELS’ or ‘WATCHERS’ have been chained in outer darkness. The ‘unclean’ NEPHILIM spirits they created are still roaming the earth, seeking those whom they may possess. Fallen angels cannot possess a human being.

Matthew 12:43-45  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Mark 1:27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

Mark 3:11 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.

Mark 5:13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

Mark 6:7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

Luke 4:36 And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.

Luke 6:18 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.

Acts 5:16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.

Acts 8:7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.

Revelation 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

The new American religion of UFOs; Belief in aliens is like faith in religion — and may come to replace it. ‘They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.’ Psalm 78:49-50. He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending EVIL ANGELS among them. He made a way to his anger; he SPARED NOT their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence. More than 50% (5) of American adults and over 60 (6) percent of young Americans believe in intelligent extraterrestrial ‘alien’ life. This tracks pretty closely with belief in God.

By Sean Illing  Jun 4, 2019, 8:10am EDT Vox.com

It’s a great time to believe in aliens.

Last week, the New York Times published a viral article about reports of UFOs off the East Coast in 2014 (2014 – 2021 = ‘7’ years) and 2015 (2015 – 2021 = ‘6’ years). It included an interview with five (5) Navy pilots who witnessed, and in some cases recorded, mysterious flying objects with “no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes” that appeared to “reach 30,000 (5×6) feet and hypersonic speeds.”

No one is quite sure what they saw, but the sightings are striking. And they’re part of a growing fascination with the possibility of intelligent ‘alien’ life.

According to Diana Pasulka, a professor at the University of North Carolina and author of the new book American Cosmic, belief in UFOs and extraterrestrials is becoming a kind of ‘religion’ — and it isn’t nearly as fringe as you might think.

More than h50% (5) of American adults and over 60 (6) percent of young Americans believe in intelligent extraterrestrial life. This tracks pretty closely with belief in God, and if Pasulka is right, that’s not an accident.

Her book isn’t so much about the truth of UFOs or aliens as it is about what the appeal of belief in those things says about our culture and the shifting roles of religion and technology in it. On the surface, it’s a book about the popularity of belief in aliens, but it’s really a deep look at how myths and religions are created in the first place and how human beings deal with unexplainable experiences.

A lightly edited transcript of my conversation with Pasulka follows.

Sean Illing

You describe belief in UFOs and aliens as the latest manifestation of a very old impulse: a religious impulse. What is it about extraterrestrials that captivates so many people?

Diana Pasulka

One way we can make sense of this by using a very old but functional definition of religion as simply the belief in nonhuman and supernatural intelligent beings that often descend from the sky. (aka, same lie-delusion-religions over 6,000 ‘6’ years of millennial cultures) .There are many definitions of religion, but this one is pretty standard.

There is another distinction about belief in nonhuman extraterrestrial intelligence, or UFO inhabitants, that makes it distinct from the types of religions with which we are most familiar. I’m a historian of Catholicism, for instance, and what I find when I interact with people in Catholic communities is that they have faith that Jesus walked on water and that the ‘Virgin Mary’ apparitions (aka, lie or deception, even Satan can appears as an ‘angel of light’) were true.

But there’s something different about the UFO narrative. Here we have people who are actual scientists, like Ellen Stofan, the former chief scientist at NASA, who are willing to go on TV and basically make announcements like, “We are going to find extraterrestrial life.” Now, she’s not exactly talking about intelligent extraterrestrial life, but that’s not how many people interpret her.

She says we’re going to find life, we’re going to find habitable planets and things like that. So that gives this type of religiosity a far more powerful bite than the traditional religions, which are based on faith in things unseen and unprovable.

But the belief that UFOs and aliens are potentially true, and can potentially be proven, makes this a uniquely powerful narrative for the people who believe in it. Is it fair to call this a new form of religion? I think so.

Sean Illing

We’ll definitely get into the religious parallels, but first I want to clear up some misconceptions about the nature of these beliefs and the people behind them. Tell me about the “Invisible College.” Who are these people, and what are they doing?

Diana Pasulka

The “Invisible College” is an old idea that comes from the 17th-century British philosopher Francis Bacon, and it was meant to describe the work of scientists that challenged contemporary beliefs of the church.

There were two incredible modern scientists, Allen Hynek and Jacques Vallée, who revived the idea. Hynek passed away in 1986, but he’s actually the star character in the History Channel’s show Project Blue Book. Vallée is still here, and he’s an astronomer and a computer scientist who worked on ARPANET, which was the military precursor to the internet.

Basically, Hynek and Vallée called themselves the “Invisible College” once they started to believe the things they were investigating were somehow either extraterrestrial or interdimensional. They were part of a group of scientists that were known to each other but were not known to the general public, and who quietly pursued this research on their own time.

Sean Illing

That sounds … weird.

Diana Pasulka

Well, it is weird. I didn’t expect to confront this when I started my book. In fact, I almost stopped my book a number of times because I thought it was so odd. I started this project as an atheist who was never really interested in UFOs or aliens. (‘They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.’)

So once I started engaging with the scientists who were doing this work, who believed in the reality of extraterrestrial intelligence, who believed they were reverse-engineering technology from what they insisted was alien aircraft, I was stunned.

What’s strange today is that these scientists don’t really talk to each other the way they did in, say, the 1970s. Now they’re much more compartmentalized and worried about attracting too much attention or having their research distorted, so they work in the shadows and mostly independently.

I met with five (5) or six  (6) of them, each of whom are working on different things. And these are all extremely ‘educated’ people who have prestigious positions at credible agencies or research institutions.

Sean Illing

Can you give me a sense of the kind of people you’re talking about and the kinds of positions they occupy?

Diana Pasulka

One of the scientists I met with, who I call Tyler in the book, has worked on most of the space shuttle missions, and he’s founded biotechnology companies worth several million dollars. Another scientist, who I call James, is an endowed chair of science at one of the nation’s top universities, and he has at least two laboratories under his control.

So these are the sorts of people I interacted with — and say what you will of their beliefs and their research, they can’t be dismissed as unserious or ‘ignorant’.

Sean Illing

You admit in the book to experiencing an “epistemological shock” to your understanding of the world after reading this literature and engaging with the scientists and believers behind the movement. Did they convince you that there’s something here?

Diana Pasulka

I wouldn’t call myself an atheist any longer, but I also wouldn’t say that I’m a believer. I don’t quite believe that there are extraterrestrials. I would say, though, that these scientists have discovered something that is truly anomalous, but I’m not in a position to say what it is or where it came from.

All I can say is that I was shocked to discover the level of scientific inquiry into extraterrestrial life. I thought I was going to interview people who just saw these things and I was going to basically say, well, you know, this is the new structure for belief in aliens and UFOs.

I had no clue that there were actually people at top universities that were studying these things on their own, that there was a whole underground network of people doing the same work, and that there was much more to this than most people imagine.

Since journalists Helene Cooper, Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal have published two articles in the New York Times, one in December 2017, and the second one last week, focusing on the military’s involvement in programs associated with UFOs and materials of UFOs, there has been a lot of public interest in the subject, even among my colleagues who used to scoff at the notion.

Sean Illing

What shocked you, exactly?

Diana Pasulka

Shortly after I started working on this book, I began to get inquiries from scientists who were interested in talking with me specifically, in person, about what I was writing. Frankly, I was very suspicious of them at first and didn’t want to engage.

But one of the scientists I mentioned a minute ago, Tyler, asked me if I’d go to a place in New Mexico with him. Tyler is a materials scientist and was involved in the space shuttle program almost his entire life. The location he wanted to bring me to is a kind of ground zero for the UFO religion. I said I’d go if I could bring somebody, so I brought a colleague of mine who is a molecular scientist.

So we travel to New Mexico and Tyler brings us to this site blindfolded, which was very weird but part of our agreement. He didn’t want us to know where we were exactly. But we get out there and we actually find some things that are quite odd, and we take them and study them more closely.

Now, the backstory here dates to the 1940s (Israel rebirth as a nation 1948 – 2018 = 70 ‘7’ years)) and the mythology of Roswell, New Mexico, as the alleged site of various UFO crashes. The place we went to wasn’t Roswell, but it was nearby. Anyway, what we found was undeniably strange, and I still don’t really understand what it was or how it got there.

I have to say, though, it gave me serious pause.

Sean Illing

Can you describe what you found? What did it look like? Why was it so strange?

Diana Pasulka

It’s very hard to describe. One of the materials, a kind of metal alloy, looked like metallic frog skin. There was another material we found, but I was asked by Tyler not to describe it publicly or in the book. But if you’re looking for more context about the sort of materials we found, you can read the New York Times story that ran in 2017.

Sean Illing

One explanation is that this piece of supposed alien wreckage was planted there by Tyler.

Diana Pasulka

No question. I open the book with this story and I never conclude whether it’s true or not, whether it was planted or not. My job as a ‘scholar’ of religion isn’t to determine whether religious beliefs are ‘true’; I’m interested in the effects of the belief itself.

But as for the evidence we found, I hate to be equivocal about it, but I honestly still don’t know what it was. I just can’t explain it. The material we discovered, and the other pieces of evidence that have emerged, are genuinely anomalous, and that’s about the most we can say about it.

Do aliens actually exist? I don’t know. But my book is more about this new form of religiosity and how it’s becoming more influential among scientists and people in Silicon Valley and Americans more generally.

“A LOT OF PEOPLE SEE DISASTER ON THE HORIZON, AND THERE’S A DEEP FEAR THAT WE WON’T BE ABLE TO SAVE OURSELVES”

Sean Illing

I’m curious why you call this a new form of religion. Traditional religions have dogmas and rituals, and they function as an anchor for the individual and a community. I guess I don’t quite see the parallels in the case of UFOs and aliens. Am I missing something?

Diana Pasulka

The problem is that we tend to think of our own religions when we think of religiosity. And in the United States, most people are Christian (those who have accepted Christ) or Jewish (those who reject Christ) or Muslim (‘those who worship the dragon and SOON the BEAST’.) These are the traditional “religions of the book” that shape most of our Western understanding of history.

But there are many different (false) religions, and some don’t involve things like gods or even dogmas. Zen Buddhism, for instance, eschews the idea of a god. It also tries to cure its practitioners of dogmas. Today, there are religions based on movies like Star Wars. So we do have to understand that religion is not exactly what we think it is.

Part of what I want to say in this book is that religion can take many forms, and the same religion can take different shapes in different places. What we’re seeing now are new forms of religion emerging from our infrastructure of digital technology and technology in general. Religions are shaped by their environments, just like most things.

And think about what many religions consist of: Often, a religion begins with contact from something ‘divine’ (demonic), something beyond the normal plane of human experience, and that ‘thing’ (fallen angels, watchers) communicates with a person on earth. And then there’s a story told about it. And then from that story, we get a larger narrative that erupts into what we call religious traditions. (aka, same lie or deception over 6,000 ‘6’ years, different millennia including the 7 year tribulation).

Something very similar is happening right now around belief in extraterrestrial life. What fascinates me about this new form of religion is that scientists and people who generally distance themselves from things like miracles seem to embrace this new religious form.

Maybe the fascination with aliens springs from some deep need for wonder or awe in a world increasingly stripped of it and in which some of the traditional religions have lost their emotional power.

Diana Pasulka

I absolutely agree with that. I also think that we’re doing more space exploration. We have different types of satellites now that we’re using, satellites that connect with our technology and personal devices. So there’s that element of this, but there’s much more going on.

We’re in a kind of planetary crisis at the moment, and there’s an increase in apocalyptic beliefs about our capacity to survive on earth. A lot of people see disaster on the horizon, and there’s a deep fear that we won’t be able to ‘save’ ourselves.

So what will save us? Well, for some, it will be these advanced beings who come to us and tell us what we can do or how we can escape. Maybe they will help us find another planetary home, or maybe they’ll bring some lifesaving technology. Who knows? But these sorts of beliefs are lurking beneath a lot of the popular fascination with alien life.

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

Sean Illing

Do you see the obsession with alien life as a byproduct of our worship of technology?

Diana Pasulka

That’s a great question that isn’t easy to answer. Surely a lot of it has to do with technology. Technology defines our world and culture; it’s our new god, the new thing we have to reckon with one way or the other.

There’s the idea that technology like artificial intelligence is going to kill us, but then there’s this idea that technology will be our ‘savior’, which is a very religious idea. So there’s already a kind of dichotomy around technology. But the point is that no matter what you think about technology and its impact on human life, there’s no denying its importance.

Whether we’re worried about technology destroying us or whether we’re hoping it will save us, we’re all more or less convinced that it will be at the center of our future, and aliens in so many ways play the role of ‘technological angel’s.

Psalm 78:49-50. He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them. He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence.

Sean Illing

I’m curious how religious authorities you interacted with regard this belief in extraterrestrial life. If we were to learn that alien life exists, it would completely upend the religious worldview. Do they see it as a threat?

Diana Pasulka

It’s a fascinating question. There are definitely people who believe that the revelation of alien life would completely change religions, but I don’t see it that way. If you look at a lot of religions, they already incorporate ideas of UFOs.

If you look at different forms of Buddhism, for example, you have types of Bodhisattvas that appear to be floating on discs and things like that. I spend a lot of time at the Vatican, and there are people there like astronomer Guy Consolmagno (author of the book Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?) who wouldn’t blink an eye if alien life suddenly appeared.

I actually think secularists and atheists would be more troubled. Because of popular depictions of aliens and movies like Independence Day, people are primed to see aliens as an existential threat, some superior invading force. But religious people, at least the ones I interact with, would regard ‘aliens’ as just another ‘being’ created by God.

But there’s no doubt that the discovery of a nonhuman intelligence would be profound, and it’s impossible to know how much it would alter our perception of ourselves and our place in the universe.

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works.

8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028-3028).

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

7 Verses to be ‘WATCHING, WATCHFUL and FAITHFUL.’

1 Thessalonians 5:2-4; For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (Be Watching and Faithful).

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).
