Quote# 72400

From an article on the top "rational proofs of the truth of christianity".

5) UFO abductions have been stopped in the name of Jesus.

UFOs are not metal spaceships from other star systems. Many of even the secular researchers are beginning to see that UFOs come not from another physical location but from another dimension. Christian UFO researchers believe UFOs come from the realm of spirit and are demonic.

There are many testimonies of attempted UFO abductions that have been stopped by the person calling out the name of Jesus. (See Charisma magazine April 2001 page 46.) There are many recent books that explain UFOs from a Christian perspective.

All you've proved is that two categories of delusional beliefs are correlated.

Do we have a new definition here for bat-shit insanity?

I wish I had known this sooner, it would have saved me from a lot of probing.

So people with one kind of crazy are prone to having another kind of crazy too?

Color me not surprised.

"5) UFO abductions have been stopped in the name of Jesus."

If I were an alien I'd run my ass back to my UFO too if some crazed redneck started shouting at me and beating me with a Bible.

"UFOs are not metal spaceships from other star systems."

No, that's not exactly likely. Possible, I suppose, but unlikely.

"Many of even the secular researchers are beginning to see that UFOs come not from another physical location but from another dimension."

I've heard this before. I've only heard that this dimension is Hell from fundies such as yourself, however.

"Christian UFO researchers believe UFOs come from the realm of spirit and are demonic."

That's because they're already delusional to begin with prior to researching something that's known to attract some mighty strange ideas. Strong tendency toward delusional thought combined with a fertile field of such is going to lead to all kinds of nonsense.

"There are many testimonies of attempted UFO abductions that have been stopped by the person calling out the name of Jesus."

I don't keep up on such things but I can honestly say that I've never--never--heard such a thing.

"(See Charisma magazine April 2001 page 46.)"

I certainly hope that citation contains more than one example and isn't from a fundy publication to begin with.

"There are many recent books that explain UFOs from a Christian perspective."

There are all kinds of books that explain all kinds of things from a "Christian perspective." There's even a local fundy radio show that has "News and Politics from a Christian Perspective." As far as I can tell, this "Christian perspective" simply means "far right wing Evangelical Christian" and nothing more.

In other words, you don't speak for every Christian and Christianity has no view on such things unless you want to count Ezekiel's encounter in the Bible with what some call a UFO.

Here's alien abduction explained from a rational, non-crazy perspective: Sleep paralysis, vivid dreams and delusional psychosis. The end.

Ah yes, the old "many". Would that be, "one, two, three, many"? Right up there with those unnamed experts that all seem to agree for adding credibility to blather. Nice to know that the inter-dimensional aliens speak English, or is it Latin? Nope, must be English, no "J" in Latin. If a Spanish-speaking person called out "En el nombre de "hay-soos", would the aliens assume they were talking about a friend from da hood, and kidnap them anyway? Inquiring minds want to know.

What are you smoking.

Let me get this straight, something that does not happen (UFO abductions) can be stopped by invoking the name of someone that does not exist (Jesus Christ).
Got it.

I don't think your definition of "rational" appears in any dictionary worth the paper it's printed on.

All must fear the Kromagg Dynasty. Unless you have an imaginary friend. Then their mind tricks don't work I suppose.

Hmm... after reading this I'm not sure which belief is crazier, Christianity or UFO's...

But funny how Christians can't fathom the idea of extraterrestrial life, so have to make up the "UFO's are demons" idea.

You lost just about everyone at "UFO" and then you tried to prove something with them.

Congratulations.

So are you saying that your bullshit trumps UFO spotters bullshit?

Thank god for FSTDT!!! Whenever I think I have heard the most bat-shit crazy fundie babbling, FSTDT comes along and surprises even me.

Wait, so this person is claiming that most unidentified flying objects have been identified?

At least he's trying to cite sources. It's a start. Now let's see if we can get them to cite sources on evolution and all the rest.

That's specious reasoning. What if I were to tell you that this rock keeps away tigers?

I can't say "citation needed" because he gave us one! Off we go to consult Charisma magazine.

And oddly enough, there is no solid evidence for alien abduction, either!

@Horsefeathers: I've always felt that Ezekiel's encounter was more likely with a bad batch of acid. :-D If that's the case, these fundies didn't fall far from the tree.
