Reverse Engineering

There are many UFO / Aliens sites, books and videos that claim the US government or various secret agencies and organisations are reverse engineering alien technology taken from crashed alien spacecraft or bartered or donated to use by aliens from other planets or dimensions.
I think its time to give a somewhat different than usual Christian perspective on this.
Firstly do entities or creatures from other worlds in terms of aliens as they are conventionally thought of exist, and are UFO’s their vehicles? Secondly are we getting technology from them by reverse engineering or copying it? Finally if these two things are not true, then what really might be happening that makes a lot of people believe these things?
As Christians we know that the evil one is known as a prince of the air. We also know that he works by deception, doubt, lies, and undermining us in any way he can. We know there are such things as demons, which are entities. Most Christians also think that humanity is unique and that life may even be unique to our home Earth.
Given this fairly firm underpinning of knowledge and fairly reasonable empirical theory, how should we interpret the conventional notion that there are UFOs flying around with beings from other worlds that are intelligent like us but that spontaneously become alive and evolved in the same we did but separately from us and are more advanced than us.
The evil one would like us to believe in evolution rather than creation, so getting us to believe it has happened elsewhere and indeed may be commonplace serves his purpose. He would like us to believe we are nothing special, indeed if we believe we are an inferior species that undermines us a bit and makes us feel insecure so that suits his style just dandy. If in the process he makes us think we have manipulative secret organisations in our society that are using the technology from the aliens in sinister ways and keeping secrets from us, he sows discontent and doubt and even paranoia. He can use belief in aliens in a many ways to give false fears and false hopes.
He with his demons can easily create illusions and manifestations that give rise to false sightings, unpleasent and inexplicable encounters with beings, and numerous real physical effects, all agreeable with the underpinning reality of the universe that there are indeed many dimensions and there are indeed other beings in them. Its just that these other dimensions are places God created and the beings are the angels and demons, not a bunch of aliens.
You are using a computer device of some kind right now, because you are reading this on one, or someone used one connected to a printer to make the piece of paper you are reading this on. The chips inside that computer were developed from transistors, which were developed from the discovery that a wire in contact with a crystal of semiconductor like Germanium or Silicon could be used as an amplifier and a logic gate in the same way a thermionic valve could be. Bell labs in the 1960’s did not copy an idea from aliens when they invented the transistor. They developed the ideas that started with the cats whisker crystal radios from 1906 and thermionic valves from 1904. Humanity created by God deserves the credit for the transistor, not non-existent aliens.
UFO’s and aliens are a very clever deception being used by the evil one to promote godless ideas of evolution, undermine the idea we are in any way special, make us feel inferior, instil false fears, sow mistrust amongst us, sow confusion, divide opinion, create false hopes, and distract us from the truth, which is that God is real and Jesus is our Lord and saviour.
Oh sure, UFOs and aliens are real, in the same way the evil one is real, and they really have the stamp all over them of the one that is putting them out there for us to believe in.
The only reverse engineering is the psychological engineering the evil one is using these fake aliens to do in people’s heads, turning them away from Jesus.
Now go to tune into some nice inspiring Christian radio, and be happy that God made us intelligent in His image, able to create things like transistors that we can use to glorify him and dispel the evil one’s false ideas.
