Presbyterian minister and author, Dr. Barry Downing, believes the Bible was inspired by extraterrestrials who traveled to earth in flying saucers. In his book, The Bible and Flying Saucers(1), Downing speculates that the pillar of cloud and fire which led Moses and the Israelites during their escape from Egypt was actually a UFO (see Exodus 13:20).
Downing also claims extraterrestrials spoke to Moses through the burning bush, as well as instructed the priests of Israel how to dress in order to protect themselves against radiation from the UFO which hovered over the Tabernacle. He suggests this may account for the Jewish custom of wearing skullcaps during prayer and worship.
