In early July, 1947, after severe thunderstorms, some unusual debris was found on a ranch northwest of Roswell, New Mexico. The rancher and some neighbors went out and examined the debris. Since it was near the Roswell Army Air Field, they reported the finding to military personnel at the airfield.
From the beginning there was some speculation that the debris was that of a UFO, specifically some kind of alien spacecraft that may have crashed on the site. This combined with some loose comments by military personnel gave momentum to the claim that the crash was that of an alien spaceship.
The Army soon offered the explanation that the debris was from an ordinary weather balloon. Subsequent investigation revealed that it was more likely a Project Mogul nuclear test monitoring device making this a more sensitive military matter. The initial interest in the Roswell crash subsided over the next few months and little was said for more than thirty years until the late 1970s when UFOologists revisited the incident. (Wikipedia)
From the late 70s to the 90s some very bizarre and strange conspiracy theories, claiming government cover up, were promulgated by investigators and alleged witnesses. Several books were written and even a made-for-TV movie was eventually produced. There was also a bizarre and transparently fictional film of an autopsy being performed on an alleged alien. The Roswell incident became the most famous UFO crash theory in the world. You may rest assured, however, that it has been thoroughly investigated by competent people and thoroughly debunked.
Rather than wade through all of the claims and counter claims and the contradicting testimony of alleged eyewitnesses let’s look at a broader picture of how an alleged spaceship from another galaxy could not fit the Roswell incident.
Let’s take a brief look at space age materials, specifically nanotechnology and nano materials. If any space ship were designed and built for interstellar travel it certainly would have been designed and built by a civilization far beyond our own in terms of materials technology. Even our own earthbound “primitive” technology has the beginnings of the development of nano-materials. These are materials that are built atom by atom to form extremely durable materials that are far stronger than steel.
Consider graphene which is a material composed of carbon that has amazing strength and heat resistance properties. Two of its developers received the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics for their breakthrough discovery. There is also work being done to produce steel so strong that a drill bit made of this nano-steel would almost never wear out no matter what material through which it is drilled.
Now imagine a spaceship, composed of super materials developed by an alleged alien civilization on a faraway planet, simply crashing and breaking up into small pieces scattered over a debris field on a ranch. It doesn’t fit. It couldn’t happen because the extremely strong materials simply would not break in small pieces in such a crash. Such a spaceship, if there ever were such a spaceship from a distant star system, would probably be powered by anti-gravity and surrounded by a plasma energy field or other science fiction like marvel. Could such a spacecraft be brought down by a thunderstorm?
Even a high speed crash would not break nanomaterials into small pieces. That goes for all of the other alleged “crashes” of UFOs that have been reported over the years such as the far-fetched allegation that a spacecraft hit a water tower in Texas and crashed and broke in pieces. There are also alleged crashes reported in the former Soviet Union that are similarly untenable.
Most Americans have heard of the Roswell incident but I suspect that few know how thoroughly it has been investigated and thoroughly debunked. It’s been rejected by many secular UFO researchers who have no prior commitment to be UFO skeptics.
Let me briefly explain where UFOs come from. UFO researchers are divided into two different viewpoints in explaining UFOs. These viewpoints are the extraterrestrial hypothesis and the interdimensional hypothesis. The extraterrestrial hypothesis is the claim that UFOs are metal spaceships with astronauts from planets in star systems within our own physical universe.
The interdimensional view is that UFOs are nonphysical entities or spirits that travel from different dimensions and enter our universe from a parallel universe. The interdimensional hypothesis is more consistent with the Bible and the Christian worldview because it can be inferred that the other dimensions from which UFOs travel are the same as the realm of spirit. The Bible certainly teaches about the spirit world.
Christian researchers and some secular researchers reject the extraterrestrial hypothesis and maintain the interdimensional view. Famous secular UFO researcher, Jacques Vallee, holds the interdimensional view.
In studying UFOs, I’ve come to believe that we’re dealing with intelligent life not from another planet but from another dimension. It’s not astronauts from outer space but spirit beings from the realm of spirit. Malevolent UFO aliens are demons and they can disguise themselves as astronauts.
I regard demonic UFOs as generally of the same category as poltergeists, hauntings, occultism and other manifestations of the demonic realm. I hold this view because the teachings that are transmitted from aliens to leaders of UFO cults are antibiblical and often lead to bizarre behavior such as the Heaven’s Gate mass suicide. Also, the horrific animal mutilations attributed to UFOs, in which animals have their blood drained and have organs removed with surgical precision is further evidence of the demonic origin of UFOs.
Have no fear of demons appearing as flying saucers or disguised as extraterrestrial humanoid beings. Don’t be deceived by cult groups with New Age teachings, claiming extraterrestrial connections and phenomena. The Bible teaches that Christ is above all and every knee must bow before Christ who conquered sin through His death and resurrection. There are instances in which people have thwarted UFO abductions by calling on the name of Jesus Christ for help.
We must point people to Jesus Christ who came in fulfillment of over 300 Old Testament Bible prophecies written hundreds of years before His birth. No other person in all of history can match this claim! Jesus worked miracles in front of eyewitnesses and this is recorded in the Gospels of the New Testament. Miracles continue to be worked today by Christians who rely on the power of Christ.
Jesus suffered and died to take upon Himself the penalty of our sins, thus making atonement. He rose from the dead in victory and appeared to eyewitnesses. Call upon Jesus Christ today to receive forgiveness of sins!
Steps to salvation:
Jesus said “Ye must be born again” (John 3:7).
Prayer to receive salvation:
“Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
To receive the salvation that Jesus purchased for us at the terrible cost of His suffering and death on our behalf I invite you to pray this simple prayer:
“Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for sending Jesus, the promised Messiah, to die for my sins. I admit that I am a sinner. I repent of my sins and I ask for your forgiveness on the basis of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I ask you to fill me with your Holy Spirit to empower me to serve you under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, Amen.”
If you prayed this prayer in the humble sincerity of your heart then you have received everlasting life, which includes power to live right in this life and entrance into heaven in the afterlife!
