Alien Intrusion: Half of Humans Believe in Space Aliens
A powerful new documentary coming on January 11 investigates the rise in belief in space aliens, UFOs and abductions.
Half of humans believe in alien life, reports Reuters about a new survey. Its not exactly clear how the pollsters would know about all humans, including those in remote tribes with no formal education, but here’s what they say about the results:
Nearly half of humans believe in alien life and want to make contact, a survey in 24 countries has found, in what researchers said helps to explain the lasting popularity of the “Star Wars” franchise 40 years after the first movie was screened.
On the eve of the release of “The Last Jedi”, researchers published findings that 47 percent of more than 26,000 respondents believe “in the existence of intelligent alien civilizations in the universe”.
Only one-quarter of respondents said they do not believe intelligent life exists beyond earth. The highest rates of believers in aliens were in Russia, China and Mexico, at around 68%. By contrast, only 28% in Holland believe in space aliens. Many Americans, fed on a steady diet of alien encounters in the movies and scientific reports about the search for life (astrobiology) and intelligent beings (SETI), treat the actual discovery of space aliens as just a matter of time.
A sizable fraction of believers in intelligent aliens aren’t waiting for a scientific discovery: they already “know” they have encountered them. These include a large number of people who have seen unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Roswell, New Mexico, is “ground zero” for the UFO craze, a very popular destination for millions of people (and a booming business for the small town). But this is no joke; UFOs have been reported by astronauts and fighter pilots and other reputable observers. The UFO phenomenon has attracted the attention of world leaders. Even more disturbing are the claims about alien abductions. The number who swear to have been taken up into alien spaceships and examined by alien doctors is quite astonishing, and many of them are intelligent, reasonable people. Clearly these people are not all crazy. They have experienced something. What on earth is going on?
Gary Bates of Creation Ministries International (CMI) has studied this phenomenon in depth, resulting in his popular book, Alien Intrusion. He has also spoken to many groups on the subject of UFOs, abductions and the scientific and theological issues with space aliens. Now, CMI has produced a high-quality documentary called Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a Deception narrated by John Schneider that will appear in theaters one night only – January 11, 2018. Watch the trailer to get excited about this premiere!
CEH has had a chance to preview the documentary and recommends it highly. If you know anyone who claims to have seen UFOs or has had “close encounters” of whatever kind, by all means encourage them to see this movie; bring them if you can. The film keeps your attention to the end. All aspects of the space alien phenomenon, from UFOs to abductions, are covered sensitively and thoroughly, with respectful interviews of those who claim to have been abducted. Leading UFOlogists and scientists also sharing their expertise. Our own contributing author Henry Richter appears in it as well, sharing his expertise on the physics of travel between the stars. The production quality is superb, with beautiful animations and space footage, and amazing historical documentation.
Christians need to be aware of this phenomenon and how to respond to it; encourage your pastor to see it, and try to get your church to go as a group.
