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.

A Cowboy Bible?

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Before I get going on this, I'd better clarify something, even though many of my regular readers (and podcast interview listeners) know: my "cowboy" moniker is not earned. It's a nickname I picked up a few years ago, and it shows my cowboy attitude. I don't know nothin' 'bout no hayburners; tell me to saddle up a horse and ride, I'd probably get kicked, fall off, and land in poo. So, I need a guide. Yes, I lived in the West — the west side of Michigan. Anyway, being a cowboy at heart has helped me get things done. My father had a cowboy attitude as well, which is something I learned from testimonials at his funeral. Anyway, adding some Western-style lingo in posts and articles adds color and personality, I reckon, even though I usually have a conversational style for the most part. Assembled from components at Clker Clip Art A while back, I was looking for cowboy Bibles and came across the " Simplified Cowboy Versio

Poor Excuses for Rejecting Creation

So often with various kinds of conversion experiences where people get all worked up about something — then the excitement cools. Books are untouched on the shelves, no interest in lectures (videos or otherwise), but they have a smattering of knowledge. Image source before modification: Pixabay /  Spencer Wing This is especially sad when someone believes in Jesus Christ but then falls away (Matt. 13:18-23). In a similar way, someone can become excited about biblical creation science but get discouraged and distracted by philosophies, intimidated by militant atheists, harassed by college professors, teased by friends, and so on. There are some who claim to be "former creationists" that have saddled up to ride with the Old Earth brand (or even with professing atheists), but when they have discussions with knowledgeable creationists, it is discovered that they only had superficial knowledge of biblical creation science. Worse, their theology (which is intertwined with it) is als
