In a biblical worldview, we don’t expect alien life to exist. The Bible tells us Earth was formed to be inhabited and the other celestial bodies were created for signs, seasons, days, and years. It was to Earth that Jesus came to save us, not to another planet to save another race of beings.
Many have been taught that life arose on this planet spontaneously and evolved into complex organisms. If it happened here, they believe, surely it could happen elsewhere in the universe. Some believe that these space beings (aliens) hold the key to health and eternal life.
Evidence of water is almost always interpreted with enthusiasm by those who believe that a little water, the right organic compounds, and an awful lot of time are together sufficient for life to appear. The journal Astrobiology reminds scientists that the presence of water, even if it’s in liquid form, isn’t enough for life to survive.
Many Christians have bought into the idea of extraterrestrial alien life. But is this idea really biblical? The Christian should constantly examine ideas in light of Scripture.
“Starchild” is the name given to a misshapen skull claimed by some to be an alien-human hybrid. However, the skull abnormalities, while not fitting any particular “named” syndrome, are all consistent with the sorts of abnormalities seen in human children with genetic problems.
Despite a lack of evidence, a YouGov study shows half of people in the UK, Germany, and the United States believe there’s intelligent alien life out there.
Scientists concluded that, if we do receive signals from an alien civilization, the aliens who sent it are probably already dead.
Among the innumerable galaxies of our universe are various planets, some similar in shape and size to Earth. Could some of these distant planets harbor life?
ET isn’t a mystery, if you’re willing to examine the data from 60 years of research and take it to its logical conclusion.
The thought that aliens might be living on other planets may sound innocent enough. But lurking underneath are some deep theological dangers.
Is there intelligent life in outer space?
Some report communication with aliens and some even claim to have been taken aboard spaceships. What are we to make of claims of alien abductions?
Many Christians have bought into the idea of extraterrestrial alien life. But is this idea really biblical?
DNA confirms tiny body from Atacama Desert belonged to a human.
Why do we even bother seeking out alien life?
So what if we can’t find alien life in our own universe? Maybe aliens exist in the next universe over.
Is the evidence for extraterrestrial life “mounting daily”? It’s the first we’ve heard of it!
Last week we reported on hot news that “alien” life had been discovered—albeit aliens from earth. But since then the widely reported research has come under attack.
We reported in February and October 2009 on the quest to find “aliens” on earth. This week’s news? They’ve found them.
Searching the heavens for water as a proxy for life has been astrobiologists’ pastime for years now. But what if—evolutionary beliefs aside—water is even less likely to support life than was believed?
Despite the ongoing lack of evidence for extraterrestrial life, one cofounder of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence is far from giving up.
Alien life may exist, says Father Gabriel Funes, director of the Vatican Observatory and labeled by the BBC as “the Pope’s chief astronomer.”
Vatican astronomer Father Jose Gabriel Funes recently claimed that there could be alien intelligences in space. What does the Bible say?
Speaking at George Washington University this week in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of NASA, Stephen Hawking discussed whether extraterrestrial life exists and, if so, why we haven’t found it, speculating on three answers to that elusive question.
Some attribute the decline of NASA to the change in leadership in the early 1970s when NASA began to pursue evolutionary ideas.
A new telescope array designed in part to spot alien life got to work this week near San Francisco, California.
I wonder if anyone there at Mystery Park in Switzerland has considered that the park’s content had anything to do with its demise?
For decades, speculation about extraterrestrial life has been boosted by tales of flying saucers and encounters with aliens.
The idea that other civilizations exist in outer space is based on evolutionary assumptions. Such reasoning is faulty, though, because evolution does not have any biblical or true scientific basis.
Man knows there is a higher intelligence—he realizes there is something more. This is because the knowledge that there is an infinite God is written on man's heart and is obvious from all around us.
Carl Sagan, an ardent evolutionist, atheist and fervent believer in life in outer space, has been involved in a search for extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI).
Would scientists seriously contemplate such an idea as Little Green Men? In fact, this year millions of US tax-payers’ dollars are being spent on a massive search for just that.
Although the Scriptures do not directly say that no life was created elsewhere, the suggestion that it was is not only totally unnecessary, but loaded with logical and theological problems.
The renowned astronomer Fred Hoyle has proposed that life originated from non-life not on Earth, but rather in the interior of a comet in space.
