Date: Tuesday - October 7, 2003
Host: George Noory
Guests: Hugh Ross

"Planet Earth is almost certainly alone for having [intelligent] life," in our universe, asserted Hugh Ross, a Christian astronomer who appeared on Tuesday's program.

Overturning the Copernican way of thought, Ross put forth the "anthropic principal," which states that the universe appears designed for the sake of human life. He believes that conditions for man's existence are only possible because the parameters for life, such as the mass density of the universe, are very carefully tuned for our planet.

Ross also contends that observers of UFOs are in some way involved with the occult (or close to someone who is), and that the high number of sightings in such locations as France, North Brazil, Russia and North Africa are correlated with a "heavy degree of occult activity within the population." Because some of these craft have been observed performing physics defying stunts such as right turns at high speeds, this is evidence they hail from a spiritual or non-physical dimension he explained.

Alien or Demon?

Author Hugh Ross has examined the question of alien phenomena from a traditional Christian perspective. He has suggested that those who witness UFOs or undergo "alien abduction," may have opened themselves up to these experiences through occult associations. In an article posted on Ross' website, titled Alien Encounters Fail the Test, Kenneth R. Samples writes that "demons" could be behind contact encounters. "The contactees may, at times, be experiencing real contact with an objective reality, but, in such instances, that reality would indeed be what the Bible calls the power of darkness," he states.

And while Samples acknowledges many believe their contact experiences are benevolent in nature, he argues the source they arise from is suspect. However acclaimed researcher John Mack writes "many abduction experiences are unequivocally spiritual, which usually involve some sort of powerful encounter with, or immersion in, divine light," and that many of the abductees he worked with sought to live in greater harmony with others as a result of their contact experiences.

Leave it to the famed author and experiencer, Whitley Strieber to see acutely from both sides of the coin, as he described in Breakthrough: "As I fought the being off, I'd experienced terror from the very bottom of my soul…at that second it felt like the devil himself was about to leap down my throat…The damned thing of it was, I felt loved, I felt that there was something good and decent there, and I found myself wanting…to surrender to this…gentleness."
