Hi Eleanor!

I recall reading on UFO UpDates sometime in the past that Joe
Jordan, area director for MUFON in Brevard County, Florida, had
over a hundred documented cases of attempted UFO abductions
which were thwarted simply by invoking the name of Jesus, the
name of God or even by quoting the Bible.



In addition to astronomer Hugh Ross, many other UFO books (eg.
'Alien Encounters' by Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman, 'UFO End-
Time Delusion' by David Allen Lewis and Robert Shreckhise, etc.)
written by authors with Christian backgrounds have come to the
same conclusion that alien abductions are really demonic

Since alien abduction-like experiences have been recorded in the
past which pre-date the modern UFO/space era and these alien
abductors recognise the name of Jesus and acknowledge the
authority of the God of the Bible, it seems reasonable to me
that such a connection would be made. After over half a century
of trying to understand this aspect of the UFO phenomena, the
explanation that visitors from other planets are responsible for
alien adbuctions is a less tenable one to me than the "occult"
connection involving demons - or ultraterrestrials as John Keel
refers to them.
