      Aliens? The Real Culprits

      "Only one kind of being favors the dead of night and lonely roads. Only
      one is real but nonphysical, animate, powerful, deceptive," and "bent on
      wreaking psychological and physical harm."

      CBN.com – Every year, more than a million people report seeing UFOs. Are
      these people crackpots and attention-seekers? Or is there something real
      behind their claims?

      Hugh Ross, a Christian physicist and astronomer, has studied UFO phenomena
      for years. His conclusion: The overwhelming majority are explainable, but
      some are not, and they could be dangerous.

      In his book, Lights in the Sky and Little Green Men, Ross writes that,
      after all the frauds and natural causes have been exposed, researchers
      "agree that there must be something real at the bottom of some UFO
      reports."

      For one thing, there's physical evidence. In the vicinity of reported
      UFOs, researchers have found deep soil compressions — including crushed
      rock — and altered soil and rock chemistry. Pilots encountering UFOs
      report disruptions in radar, radio, and compass operations. Animals become
      greatly agitated in the presence of UFO phenomena. And some humans who
      have seen UFOs claim to experience temporary blindness, burns, and
      internal bleeding.

      And yet, Ross writes, UFOs must be nonphysical, because they disobey the
      laws of physics. For instance, they may be detected by radar but not seen,
      or they're seen but not detected by radar. They make impossibly sharp
      turns and sudden stops, disappear and reappear. They melt asphalt and burn
      grass without fire or flame.

      And then there's the fact that ten times as many UFO sightings occur at
      3:00 a.m. than at either 6:00 a.m. or 8:00 p.m. They appear in remote
      areas far more often than in densely populated ones.

      Of course, most of these reported phenomena are investigated and proven to
      be false. But for the remainder that cannot be explained otherwise, Ross
      has an intriguing theory.

      He writes: "Only one kind of being favors the dead of night and lonely
      roads. Only one is real but nonphysical, animate, powerful, deceptive,"
      and "bent on wreaking psychological and physical harm." It seems apparent,
      says Ross, that UFOs, if there are such things, "must be associated with
      the activities of demons."

      Other researchers — including secular scholars — have come to similar
      conclusions. They attribute UFO phenomena to demons or to an equivalent
      cause — for example, malevolent beings from another dimension. Physicist
      Jacques Vallee concludes: "The UFO phenomenon represents evidence for
      other dimensions that simply cannot be understood apart from their psychic
      and symbolic reality. What we see here is not an alien invasion," Vallee
      writes. "It is a spiritual system that acts on humans and uses humans."

      Astronomer and agnostic J. Allen Hynek says that UFOs cause physical
      effects "in the same way that a poltergeist can produce very real physical
      effects." Another agnostic, UFO specialist John Keel, concludes that
      victims of what he calls "demonomania" suffer the same medical and
      emotional symptoms as UFO contactees.

      The idea that demons are behind UFO phenomena — and that they sometimes
      harm the humans who see them — can be, if Dr. Ross is correct, frightening
      and can also raise interesting questions: Who among us might be vulnerable
      to these kinds of attacks?

      In the final installment of this series, we'll test Ross's hypothesis and
      learn why some people encounter UFOs, and others don't.
