Last Show Recap

Gods, UFOs, and the Bible

Fifty miles off the coast of Nantucket, 250 feet beneath the Atlantic, lies the RMS Republic and her secret treasure. As soon as Republic sank, rumors spread of a precious cargo, but the ship has kept her secrets intact for over a century, until now. Life-long treasure hunter Martin Bayerle joined Connie Willis (email) for all four hours to discuss how he has devoted the past 35 years of his life researching the shipwreck and proving the existence of her reputed cargo of 150,000 American Eagle gold coins, a bounty worth a billion dollars in today’s economy, and his quest to recover the it on his second attempt at the Republic.

Gods, UFOs, and the Bible

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - November 26, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Patrick Cooke, Susan Smith Jones

Theologian and author Patrick Cooke discussed how his research counters Erich von Daniken's notion that aliens have been mistaken for gods. Cooke contends that gods have been mistaken for aliens. Powerful gods or "Elohiym" traveled to Earth in spacecraft or UFOs; also associated with these vehicles were the "Malak," angels who serve the gods, he said.

In the Bible, UFOs are depicted as clouds, transporting angels and gods. They are able to descend and ascend, hover, move rapidly and generally behave in ways that seem contrary to natural laws, Cooke stated. These craft could be the same as the UFOs that are sighted in the modern era, he suggested. Biblical figures such as Elijah, Moses and Enoch all experienced "divine abductions" which may relate to current reports of alien encounters.

He also touched on other aspects of the Bible that seemingly portray paranormal activity, including cryptozoological creatures (see below), ghosts, and prophecy. In a verse written by David, his description of the afterlife-- "and we fly away" echoes that of near-death experiencers, Cooke noted.

Health & Diet

First hour guest, author and motivational speaker Susan Smith Jones talked about diet and holistic health. Produce is the most important health care you can buy, and choosing fruits and vegetables of different colors will give you more phytonutrients, she said. Pumpkin, spinach, broccoli, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, cinnamon and flax seeds were singled out by her as having particularly healthful properties.
