      Bible scholar, Barry Downing, firmly believes that biblical teachings were

      inspired by extraterrestial beings who camw to earth in flying sausers. Downing

      was so convinced, he wrote a book about his theory called THE BIBLE AND FLYING

      SAUCERS (Lippincott,New York, 1968).

      In the book, Downing says the bible clearly points out how UFOs played a

      strong role in the evolution of the Hebrew-Christian faith. For example,

      Downing believes the Scriptures suggest that Jesus' resurrection occured when

      he was beamed up from Earth by a flying saucer.

      Downing also believes that the bright cloud that led the people of Israel

      through the Red Sea, parting the waters and then engulfing the Egyptions, was a


      The Author even claims it was space beings who spoke to Moses from the

      middle of a glowing thicket, and later spoke to Elijah outside the cave,forcing

      the prophet to sheild his eyes because of the brightness. A UFO took Jesus away

      at the Ascension, and hovered over Paul and his followers on the Damascus Road,

      Downing contends.

      Further, the author claims the three wise men probably followed a UFO to

      Bethlehem, since stars do not move or abruptly stop in the manner the bible


      Downing claims that evidence proving UFOs could be hazardous to human health

      can also be found in the Bible. He points to references to the Egyptians

      drowning in the Red Sea, warning Moses not to approach too near the burning

      bush, and warnings given his followers not to approach Mount Sinai, as proof.

      The author points out other mystifying events in the Bible that he believes can

      only be interpreted to mean the participants had contact with UFOs,

      For example, he points out that when Moses decended from Mount Sinai with

      two tablets in his hands, Exodus records that the skin of his face shone from

      talking with God. And he says the NEW TESTAMENT describes how Jesus began to

      glow when in contact with a bright object on a mountain.

      When the Tabernacle was built, Downing cotends the priests serving it were

      told by ETs what clothing to wear to protect themselves against radiation,

      because the UFO hovered like a cloud over the tent enclosing the Tabernacle.

      Downing believes this precaution could have brought about the Jewish custom of

      wearing skullcaps into houses of worship. The author even suggest mutations in

      the growth of biological life caused by radiation could have resulted in the

      plagues described in Exodus.

      Downing further theorizes that Einstein's curvature of space theory provides a

      clue to the place where heaven is located. The author contends Jesus may have

      meant that the kingdom of heaven quite literally rests in the midst of us,

      meaning that heaven is on an entirely different plane or wave length, invisible

      to us, but existing parallel to our own and connected by bends or warps in the

      space-time continuum.
