As many people, I have been interested in UFOs and Alien encounters since teenage years, it is really hard to avoid the topic as it's quite influential in the pop culture.
Interest really started to fuel when I met a young Serbian girl who would open up about her weird encounters with reptilian beings during the night, and how she would wake up with marks etc, and her parents started taking her to a psychologist as they thought she was crazy.
I remember reading a book at the age of 17 about these encounters, it was written by a secular author who would hypnotize victims of alien abductions and write what they would tell him, it was mostly all similar stuff, people are abducted, probed, and for some reason aliens would always sexualize the encounters, with weird reproductive stuff happening etc.
One of the interesting stories written in the book was from a Muslim women, who once abducted she would start praying, and apparently it made these being go mad and angry. I thought that was odd, why would such being care about prayer?
I got more involved in the subject and started reading more books, another book had a similar story of a Christian women who seen a UFO land, with beings coming out and running towards her, she ran to the car to pick up her Bible, at which point the beings attacked her and told her "you can't bring that where you are going". So again, why do interstellar beings care about the Bible?
I spoke to my priest about Orthodox views on demonic encounters etc, and they pretty much fit the picture what these books were stating of how encounters look like.
Than about 10 years ago I started noticing a lot of websites popping up by alleged abductees who have embraced Christianity claiming that the only thing that can stop their abductions is prayer to Jesus Christ.
Cut the long story short, about 2-3 years ago I listen to a podcast by a 30 year 'Paranormal Investigator' who claims that after 30 years of investigation, he has concluded that in areas where there are UFO sightings, there are also sightings of Bigfoot, weird creatures, ghosts etc - his conclusion is that all these phenomenon are caused by a single entity which manifests different things.
After that I was pretty certain that this is all demonic activity, and this Investigators conclusion is that sightings world wide are constantly increasing and have been growing since he started, and exploded with the introductions of Internet.
Than the final icing on the cake came last year, where I heard a YouTube podcast by a lad called John Ventre - who was a director of some big UFO organization who has come out to say that his research has led that Aliens are demons, and he had encounters at his house. And a shock to me, John Ventre became a Orthodox Christian - for some reason a lot of YouTube 'Truther People' are becoming Orthodox, always surprises me to discover who is Orthodox.
Anyway gents, what are your thoughts about this matter?
I also wonder why these things are becoming more common, signs of the times?
