Is the UFO Bible Connection Valid?
Considering a UFO Bible connection might not be the very first thing that comes to mind.when thinking about aliens.
But it is one of the more interesting aspects of UFO history.
Although it is doubtful that any of the references would be enough to act as proof of aliens or proof of UFO's, nevertheless, they are interesting enough to make you think....if that's what you want to do.
Some basic ideas first
Before we get into the whole UFO-Bible thing, what about considering that there may well be plentiful evidence of aliens throughout the Bible anyway?
For example, there are many references to angels. In most cases these are described as powerful beings, usually coming from the skies and having a significant impact on the humans they make contact with.
To me, that would be enough to at least consider them as alien beings;
However, that is really just an aside.
The main point is that the Bible as we know it is a hodge-podge of various authors spread over hundreds of years, with many books omitted a long time after they were written when the the whole idea of Christianity was being shaped to meet political needs of the time.
Therefore, it seems reasonable to assume that the remaining text is open to various interpretations, amongst which is looking for UFO-Bible connections. After all, it seems, from the stories of the Annunaki, that there had already been aliens meddling in human affairs a long time before Jesus was around. Why not look for other supporting evidence of continual alien influence?
Some of the Bible references
Perhaps the best description, given that it was written by people who could not possibly understand the technology, is that of Elijah going up to heaven in his 'chariot of fire': 2Kings, 2:11 "And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven."
But this is by no means the only reference to such vehicles. For example, Isaiah 66:5 "For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire." and Ezekiel 1:5-23 has a more extensive description which details the movements, the lights, the sound and even how they lifted off in unison.
Then you have Exodus 13:21-22 " And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night. He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people."
The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah also sounds like the result of a nuclear explosion, which would have had to have originated from an off-world source!
There are many other references to unusual sights, sounds, devices, activities and beings throughout the Bible. While not all of them need point to aliens, nevertheless, it is enough to allow serious consideration to the UFO-Bible connection and accept it as being evidence for aliens in that time.
Of course, the unknown in all this is just how much have aliens influenced our culture, our civilization? If they appeared in Biblical times, what have they done to the way we think and act (as well as worship!)?
There are many choices for people interested in all things UFO. Bible study may not be the first on the list, but that doesn't mean that you should dismiss it!
