Secret Of Space Visitors Exists In Spiritual Realm?
By Mannix Porterfield
Register-Herald Reporter

What is the true story behind unidentified flying objects seen
in the night sky over every corner of the planet for

Are they, as leading UFO expert Stanton Friedman insists,
strange visitors from another planet, or planets, so advanced in
technology they are equipped to zoom in and out of Earth's
atmosphere at will?

Does the secret actually lie within the spiritual realm, as some
fundamentalist Christians maintain?

Many a Web site advocates the position that UFOs are nothing
more than demon spirits, part of Satan's army, released in the
"last days" to delude earthlings and provide a convenient
explanation for the antichrist to explain the Rapture of the
saints just before the seven-year Tribulation unfolds.

In a recent telecast, noted biblical author Jack Van Impe touted
this idea, but his staff didn't respond to a request by The
Register-Herald for a detailed account.

Nor was there any answer to a similar inquiry posted at the
headquarters of Hal Lindsey, author of The Late Great Planet
Earth, a best-seller on biblical prophecy in the early 1970s.

Friedman, a nuclear physicist, is a leading lecturer lined up
for a two-day UFO summit this weekend in Charleston.

The Friday-Saturday event comes almost 55 years to the day of
the invasion by the so-called "Flatwoods Monster" in Braxton
County, one that inspired two books by Frank Feschino, another
key speaker at the Charleston gathering.

Feschino will be autographing his latest effort, Shoot Them
Down, chronicling what he says was an aerial battle along the
Atlantic Coast between aliens and Air Force jetfighters.

Friedman says one of the bigger objections to getting the truth
spread about UFOs in modern times has come from the
fundamentalist camp.

He quoted the late Rev. Jerry Falwell as dismissing so-called
aliens as "the work of the devil," and insisting there is no
intelligent life beyond Earth.

"What an insult to God if this is the best He could do,"
Friedman countered in a Register-Herald interview.

A new film titled Unidentified, produced by a Christian
filmmaking outfit, explores the demonic theory in fiction.

As two magazine writers dig into a sighting in a small Texas
town, a veteran government worker whose former agency was
involved in the UFO controversy for years before his conversion,
tells them, "I think the world is going to end soon and we're
living in the last days. As Christians, we believe that the
Rapture is the next big event on God's calendar. The devil knows
this and he's going to do everything he can to explain the event
away. Now, that's where the UFO phenomenon really comes into

A spokesman for John Hagee Ministries in San Antonio said he has
heard the famed preacher's sermons for more than a decade but
cannot remember any of them addressing UFOs.

"So I imagine that either he feels there is not much credence to
the existence of UFOs, or that their existence is unverifiable,
inconsequential in comparison to other, more pertinent issues,
or a case of mistaken identify," Edward Martinez said.

There is no mention of UFOs in the Bible as modern man
understands the term, he said.
