Go Away ET

Worldly Encounters

The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?

Here is what I’d say:

“Read the Bible. It is the most widely distributed book ever produced. It has moved millions to do good. Some have used it for bad. It has been used to subjugate people. It has been used to free people. It has been used to open minds. It has been used to close minds. It also tells me that extraterrestrials don’t exist so who are you and why are you so butt-ugly?”

Here is my short story for the day, The Foul Odor of Success.

  1. Where in the Bible does it tell you that extraterrestrials don’t exist? I’m curious! Maybe you are thinking of the passage or passages where we are told us that God made us in his own image. In my mind God comes to us in many forms.

    Thanks for writing a post that makes me think! šŸ™‚

    1. Karuna,
      Sorry to mislead. I was referring in a houmous way to the freakish creatures conjured in the minds Hollywood producers. The Bible speaks of extraterrestrials in the form of God, Jesus Christ, the angles, seraphs, and cherubs. In addition the Bible speaks about fallen angels who are demons.
      As far as human existence, to paraphrase Psalm 115:16 it says the heavens belong to God, but the earth he has given to the sons of man.
      It is interesting that millions of dollars have be spent to find even the smallest signs of life from distant galaxies, but many refuse listen to an extraterrestrial who has our best interest at heart.
