In Which Gary Bates Responds To My Post About Aliens and the Bible

Gary Bates, CEO of Creation Ministries International and the author of the best-selling book Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, has responded to my previous post, Gary Bates Thinks ET Could Potentially Falsify The Bible. Predictably , he has taken objection to it and to an earlier post refuting his anti-alien arguments called Why ET Probably Doesn’t Need To…

Gary Bates Thinks ET Could Potentially Falsify the Bible

Gary Bates is the CEO of Creation Ministries International and the author of the best-selling book Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection. It is perhaps no surprise that Bates does not believe aliens exist, especially intelligent aliens capable of moral decisions, because he feels the latter could potentially falsify Christianity. During a lecture given…

Strangers & Aliens: Sci-Fi, UFOs and Alien Life Re-Examined

Last year, I began writing a book about aliens and UFOs, with a particular emphasis on some bad arguments that are being tossed around by some of my fellow Young Earth Creationists against the possibility of extraterrestrial life. At long last, my trek down the Ufological rabbit hole has come to and end! I’ve definitely…

Something for the ET-loving Geeks Out There

Creation Cryptids: Little Green Men & UFOs

The following originally appeared in answer to a comment on this post. Aliens and UFOs. OK. I hail from West Virginia, home of Gray Barker [credited with possibly inventing the Men In Black], the Mothman of Point Pleasant and the Green Monster of Flatwoods [aka the Flatwoods Monster], all of which have been linked to…

“Absent from the body” & Ghosts

I found myself discussing whether ghosts were possible from a Christian POV. Most of our discussion revolved around the phrase, “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord” and Christ’s words to the repentant thief, “Today, you will be with me in Paradise.”  I personally think that ghosts as restless…
