Video Miniseries: UFOs, Aliens, and Genesis

There is a four-part miniseries by biblical creationist Ian Juby that originally aired on the Miracle Channel in North Texas — I mean, Canada — and when it became available on his Wazooloo YouTube channel, I shared the episodes on The Question Evolution Project. The episodes are about half an hour each, so I wanted to do this post and make the links convenient.

The UFO / AEP sightings have increased in recent years, and respected people are discussing them. Ian Juby has an excellent video miniseries on this.
Title added to a screenshot from one of the videos. Used without permission.
For a long time, flying saucers or unidentified flying objects were considered the stuff of someone who was crazy as a loon. While there were legends of aerial phenomena long ago, it took off (heh!) in about the 1950s. While some were hoaxes, mistakes, and occasional insanity, not all can be easily dismissed.

Reporter and radio announcer commenced to doing some investigating, and I remember reading his 1966 book Flying Saucers — Serious Business (which Amazon is disingenuously marketing as a 2017 publication, fifty years after Edwards died). In this book and others back then, space aliens and their craft had disparate manifestations. While the vessels are still recalcitrant to uniformity, it seems that the alleged occupants have settled into the elongated shapes that are reported today.

Reports of strange craft and entities have been greatly increasing in recent years (probably due to global warming). Although respectable people in the past admitted to seeing UFOs (now in the formerly United States, called UAP), it is becoming commonplace:

"You see that alien thing last night, Luke?"

"Nope, missed that one, Wyatt. Did I tell ya about that big 'un me and my pals saw last month?"

People from all walks of life, and many in very respectable (and responsible) positions are discussing them.

An unpleasant aspect is abductions. While there were stories fifty years ago about going on board a flying saucer, modern abductions are traumatic for people. They are not just, "We'll drop you off here" events. Victims often have repeated encounters. Interestingly, "walk the talk" Bible-believing Christians can stop them in their tracks by calling out to Jesus. That smacks of demonic activity, old son, not technologically advanced and "more highly evolved" life forms. Indeed, they speak against Jesus and the Bible, and push evolution. 

Barry McGuire nailed it back in 1978.

Enough of the introduction. I'd take it mighty kindly if you'd watch these four videos. Mr. Juby explains that some technology of aircraft that has been the subject of experimentation, the rise in popularity, how some UFO investigators are very uneasy about what's happening. More than that, there is an important spiritual aspect, and even how the whole shootin' match ties in with the creation-evolution controversy! Also, I recommend the book and movie of Alien Intrusion. Ian also recommends this book.

Andy Stanley, Frank Turek, and Bad Theology

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Andy Stanley has been disappointing some people, and causing quite a few to be alarmed by his opposition to the authority of Scripture. (Note: Do not be confused.  Charles  Stanley is his father, senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, and heard on In Touch Ministries . I've found most of his teachings to be doctrinally sound, and he upholds the inerrancy and authority of the Bible.) Unfortunately, megachurch director Andy Stanley has been saying things that are destructive to the truth, including recommending the false teaching of theistic evolution. Gray wolf image credit: US National Park Service While shooting from the hip can be a good thing, someone claiming the title of pastor should reign himself in . Stanley was disrespectful of small churches, then apologized later . In another instance, " What  did he just say?", Stanley may have used a very bad word in a sermon.

Disappointment with Young Earth Creation

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen  First, a note for anyone who is curious. The usual format: introduction with some of my thoughts plus links for useful information, excerpts of featured articles, then links to keep reading. I put my name on it and call it an article when I have more to say. This one will be different. I will reference older articles, then add some thoughts that I hope will prove helpful. There is more following the excerpt and link. So, does anyone remember Ken Keathley? Medal image manufactured at Custom Medal Maker Several years ago, Ken Keathley renounced young earth creationism to accept an old earth view. Apparently, he was disappointed by people in the young earth community. No kidding? Taking Friendly Fire This is where I'm going to open up and get personal with both of my readers. Ken Keathley is not the only one who has been disappointed, and in addition, I've been deeply hurt by the young earth community. Things I have posted on social(ist) media have been &qu

Evaluating Truth Claims in Genesis

Some people try to dismiss Genesis as myth containing spiritual truth using elements from the pagan neighbors of the Hebrews. Others say it is misunderstood, as if the Creator of the universe was unable to communicate with us. With closer inspection, we see that Genesis is a historical narrative. Credit: RGBStock /  Billy Frank Alexander The idea that the early chapters of Genesis are mythological should not be accepted by professing Christians, as there are serious problems that result. (One of these is that Jesus, Peter, Paul, and others referred to these chapters as literal history, so by denying this, one is calling them liars!) Also, there are repercussions with the gospel message. Read some classical mythology, then come back to Genesis and see the difference. Myths are vague and have a different flow, but the Bible is precise. Indeed, even the sequence of creation days is specific — a day itself is defined. Interestingly, many translations have in Genesis 1:5 less accurate by us
