Extraterrestrials In The Bible
by Kurt Saxon
1947 when "Flying Saucers" first began to appear to pilots and then to
just plain folks, extra-terrestrials have been almost a fad. A question is;
where were they before 1947? Actually, such visitors have been reported
periodically for centuries. However, before we called them extra-terrestrials,
people called them witches, goblins and various other names for lack of a better
frame of reference.
It should be obvious that ETs would not want to be recognized as such. They
would have had nothing to give to our witch-hunting, superstitious ancestors.
Nor would modern ETs care to mix it up with our jet planes, unless they were
numerous enough to engage us in total war.
But it's only in science fiction that armadas of space invaders attack Earth.
Space travel would be undertaken by beings based on a home planet, to whom such
endeavors would be scientific, exploratory and finally the last resort of a
relative few escaping a dying planet. War would be just too expensive,
regardless of their economic system.
More realistically, the ships would leave the home planet singly as scouts and
later with colonists. They would have a general destination based on
astronomical calculations. Their destination might be simply a star cluster
hopeful of having life-supporting planets.
The takeoffs might be a year apart and the voyages could take centuries. The
scouts would explore likely planets and if a planet were promising, a crew might
stay around for years, possibly with the intent to prepare the planet for
habitation. This might entail anything from rearranging the planet's surface,
changing its atmosphere, to modifying its life-forms to be of service to the
Naturally, marker buoys would be planted along the route, reporting on the
findings; intelligent life, if any, and possibly warning latecomers away from a
particularly hostile environment or population.
Nearly every modern close encounter brings reports of little men with grayish
skin, large eyes, slits for mouth and nostrils and totally unable to pass for
human. So one can be excused for imagining ETs as totally alien, looking nothing
like us. Modern ETs are most likely beings from a different star system than
those who visited our planet ages ago. They are probably on their way to a
planet more suitable. Whether or not our planet might do, we are too numerous,
well-armed and potentially hostile to aliens for them to consider Earth a final
Our own ancestors may have been ETs who got here long before our modern ETs left
their own planets. Unlike our present series of visitors, the ETs who came to
Earth thousands of years ago were much like us; possibly, not even superior to
modern Western man.
It is likely that the ETs who figured so prominently in the Old Testament also
visited other races, upgrading the aboriginal from Neanderthal to Cro-Magnon. It
could have taken thousands of years while successive groups tried to upgrade
Earth's dull-witted savages to people who could be domesticated to the status of
There are still remnants of unchanged savages alive on Earth today. These are
the Australian aborigines, New Guinea natives, African Bushmen and Pygmies,
Amerindians and Japanese Ainus.
Most like the original Neanderthals are the Australian and New Guinea
aboriginals. The Tasmanian aborigines, extinct since the early 1800s were so low
on the scale of evolution that they could not conceive by Europeans.
Aside from the gods in the legends of so many of Earth's ancestral peoples, the
most thorough record of ET visitations is in the 01d Testament. To better
understand what follows you should take time to read from Genesis through
Joshua. Read it as you would any book on history, objectively, without belief or
disbelief, but only for content.
Read it, knowing it to be the written account of oral tradition, experiences and
observations of a people who honestly believed it to represent their god. If you
read it thus, objectively, you will see a pattern of a logical progression of
many generations of a people conditioned to the service of extra-terrestrials.
Accounts which make no religious or philosophical sense are completely rational
when serving the interests of extra-terrestrials.
If you read these first six books of the Old Testament you will recognize this
pattern. The first part is the creation of modern man, or Cro-Magnon. Then there
are periods of little or no contact. Then the Lord maps out the proposed
territory of his chosen people.
The overall plan was to create and condition a race of servants, isolate them in
a territory of their own and then use them for a more or less permanent food
supply for the orbiting ETs.
Genesis 1:26-27, ''And God said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our
likeness---' (27) 'So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him, male and female created he them.'"
Now we jump to the Garden of Eden. Eden was obviously a research facility where
Neanderthals, lower animals and prospective plant species could be upgraded to
usefulness to the ETs. Then, "And it came to pass, when men began to
multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the
sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them
wives of all which they chose." (Gen. 6:1,2 & 4). By the time the
Homo-Sapiens were functional Cro-Magnons the ETs were between a rock and a hard
place. They had raised Homo-Sapiens from congenital savagery to tribalists but
feared a progression to a more civilized status, wherein the new man might be
above ET influence.
Bible scholars have questioned why a tree of knowledge should have been in the
Garden of Eden if man was not supposed to eat from it. If Eden were a research
facility, the ETs were not only developing cereals and vegetables to adapt to
Earth's soils and climate, but would have planted their own varieties to raise
in greater volume than their own hydroponicums could accommodate.
The forbidden fruit was probably on a tree the ETs had reserved for themselves.
(Gen. 3:1-7). It could indeed have been a mind-expanding drug which made New Man
more aware than he was meant to be by the ETs.
At any rate, Cro-Magnon was developed and aware and no longer a part of a
control group. So that facet of the mission was scrubbed and Man was evicted
from Eden and Eden was abandoned to the weeds.
Years went by and ETs made overtures to Cain and Abel, descendants of their
specimens in Eden. (Gen. 4:1-15). In their offerings to their Lord, Cain gave of
the fruit of the ground while Abel gave sheep. The ETs rejected Cain's
vegetables but accepted Abel's sheep. This turned out to be a diplomatic
Regardless of the size of the mother ship, the hydroponicums would not have
provided the surplus needed to feed animals larger than rabbits and chickens, if
they had them. The ETs, probably out of contact with our planet's surface for
years, were starved for MEAT! And fat. After all, as it takes a surplus of
vegetation to produce meat, it takes a still greater surplus to fatten that
meat. Hence, the later taboo against the Children of Israel eating fat. (Lev.
3:17). The ETs wanted it considered as a delicacy reserved for themselves.
Had the ET graciously accepted Cain's offer, the first murder would not have
been committed. But he rejected the offering and, in a fit of jealous rage, Cain
killed Abel. The ET had to punish Cain but stopped short of killing him. People
have wondered why Cain was protected from other men who might have killed him.
But it was the ET's fault, hence the protection.
The next contact worth giving credence to came generations later after Terah,
Abraham's father, left Ur of the Chaldees and settled in Haran. (Gen. 11:31).
Then the Lord appeared to Abraham, (Gen. 12:7), while his nephew, Lot, was with
him. It is most likely that Lot also saw the Lord, as he later knew an ET when
he saw one.
Abraham's wife was barren, (Gen. 11:30), and in verse 18 we have a face-to-face,
man-to-man conference between Abraham, the Lord and two of his lieutenants. The
Lord's promise to cause old Sarah to have a child could only have been an
example of artificial insemination. (Gen. 21:1-3). This chapter is both
interesting and amusing so you ought to read it. It even has Abraham pleading
for the lives of those in Sodom and the surrounding towns.
Of course, the ETs meant to wipe out those towns, as that was their first
recourse to any problem with Earth people. The excuse of "wickedness"
on the part of the victims was only a story for those they were working with at
the time. Otherwise, Abraham and Lot might have considered the ETs enemies
rather than gods.
Read Genesis 19 as the most graphic account of ETs in the Bible. Verse 1 has the
two ''angels'' approaching Sodom where Lot sees them and recognizes them for who
they are. Bowing, he asks them to stay with him. They don't want to but he's
probably attracting so much attention to them that they are forced to go home
Next, the townsmen demand to know the strangers. For some reason later Bible
commentators interpreted this "know" to mean carnal knowledge, as if
the townsmen were a pack of aggressive homosexuals wanting to rape the
strangers. That's nonsense. Lot lived in Sodom and knew the people. He would not
have offered them his daughters had they wanted sex from the strangers. And of
course, the townsmen were justified in their suspicions, as the strangers were
indeed spies, scouting the town preparatory to destroying it.
But what follows is something all the commentators missed. The townsmen are
trying to get in and the strangers "smote the men that were at the door of
the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they wearied themselves
to find the door ".
Look, if you were trying to get into someone's house and were struck blind,
you'd forget about the door in a hurry. They weren't blind in the sense that
they couldn't see. They just saw a door where there was a wall and a wall where
the door was. In short, the ETs used some kind of weapon or tool which caused
their vision to be refracted.
Next day the ETs persuaded Lot and his household to flee the town, after which,
(Gen. 19:12-28), "The Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and
fire out of heaven and overthrew those cities and all the plain and all the
inhabitants of the cities and that which grew upon the ground". (28)
"and he (Abraham) looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah and toward all the land
of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke
of a furnace".
Now, that's just the way a primitive would describe a nuclear attack. And if
true, it couldn't have been anything else.
From Sodom until the time of the exodus from Egypt, the ETs were hardly in
evidence. They may have been circling the planet or off exploring but they
pretty much left the Israelites to their own devices for several hundred years.
When they returned, the people were living in Egypt. They were an underclass but
not necessarily slaves; pretty much like the Palestinians in Israel today.
However, as their numbers increased, their loyalty was questioned, they were
mistreated and they might have been wiped out. But the ETs decided it was time
to collect them and settle them in the promised territory. Canaan was big enough
and potentially rich enough to insure the ETs all the supplies they needed.
But Canaan was occupied by many small but well-armed kingdoms. And the
Israelites were soft, at least as compared to their seminomadic ancestors who
settled in Egypt during a famine. So the majority of them would not have wanted
to leave Egypt. Nor would the Egyptians have wanted to lose their menials and
The ETs had a real problem. How to get a whole people to leave a place they
didn't want to leave, to go to a place they didn't want to go to. And how to get
the Egyptians to cut loose from a large block of their labor force.
Moses and his brother Aaron were to work on the people, agitating, preaching and
promising. Then the Egyptians had to be persuaded to release the people.
Exodus 10:1 has the first reference to the Lord hardening Pharaoh's heart. The
phrase is repeated often. Scholars have long had trouble with that. For, if the
Lord hardened Pharaoh's heart, Pharaoh was blameless. Some say it was just an
archaic turn of phrase which didn't mean what it obviously did mean.
In envisioning a higher being, Bible scholars cannot accept the added misery of
the people and the slaughter of Egyptian innocents as deliberate. But it was.
The overall idea was to so alienate the Israelites and the Egyptians that the
Israelites could not return to Egypt and so would be stuck with Moses, Aaron and
In convincing Pharaoh of the ET's power, some of the tricks of Moses were
duplicated by the Egyptian priests. Some could have been done by moderns with
airships and some are beyond us, but not beyond the realms of a higher
technology. Some are simply stories. One problem with some of these accounts is
that some which scholars believe to have been made up are easily explainable by
the presence of ETs.
In their dealings with the Israelites, the ETs constantly displayed a
"heads we win, tails you lose" policy. Whatever worked, the ETs took
credit for it. Whatever didn't work, they blamed it on backsliding by the
people, or even the sins of individuals.
But there were many instances where this policy just couldn't be applied.
Furthermore, whereas the ETs did their best to make the people believe that each
of the many "Lords'' were a single god, an overview of the incidents shows
them to have been several different people, and actually superior only because
of a higher technology.
For instance, Judges 1:19 says "And the Lord was with Judah; and he drove
out the inhabitants of the mountain; but he could not drive out the inhabitants
of the valley, because they had chariots of iron". Now, if ''the Lord''
could not defeat people who had chariots of iron, then the Lord was no god.
Even so, there is a possible indication of what kind of tool or weapon the ETs
were using. You may have a microwave oven, or at least you know about them.
You've also probably heard of the Russians beaming microwaves at U.S. embassies
and intelligence installations. The ETs might have refined microwave beams which
could kill humans.
However, microwaves are nullified by metals. So although microwaves might have
been used to kill primitive soldiers carrying no metals but swords and spear
points, an iron-sheathed chariot would have nullified them.
Additionally, there is a humorous story in Exodus 17:9-12. During a battle with
Amalek, Moses held up his hand. As long as his hand was up, his side won. When
he tired and dropped his hand, the battle went against his side. When he was
exhausted, Aaron and Hur each held up one of his hands and they carried on this
farce until sundown.
You must realize that the position of Moses' hands could have had nothing to do
with the battle itself. Surely his men weren't willing to let themselves be
butchered just because Moses' hands were down.
So we can only suppose that they were getting help from above. One can imagine
the ETs manning a hovering scout ship, seeing everything and zapping one
Amalekite after another while they could see Moses' hands and then taking a
break when he was tired. How they must have laughed at Aaron and Hur, each
holding up a hand until sundown.
One story causing controversy for centuries is the one about Joshua arranging
for the sun and moon to stand still so that one group of primitives could wipe
out another group of primitives. Even saying it was the Earth which stopped
revolving, makes no sense.
However, that the sun and moon stood still may not have been a lie, at least
insofar as the primitives would know. To people who never saw a light brighter
than a campfire or torch after sundown, floodlights shining down from a space
ship would indeed have given those people the impression that the sun and moon
Then there is the Ark of the Covenant. After the ETs were long gone, the Ark was
trouble. Many have speculated that the Ark was a receiving set whereby the high
priests communicated with the ETs. But there is a strong possibility that, after
the Ark had served its purpose and the ETs meant to depart Earth, they booby
trapped it out of spite and frustration over their failure to utilize the people
chosen to serve them.
Consider; in 1 Samuel 4:10-11, the Ark was captured by the Philistines. The tale
of Dagon, the Philistine god, falling before the Ark, was obviously made up
later by an Israelite. What is interesting however, is that the Philistines were
smitten with "emerods", (tumors) and many died. (1 Sam. 5:6-12).
Had the ETs been around, the Ark would not have been taken. Also, the booby
trapping was probably done with radioactive material. The Philistines crowding
around their trophy had gotten radiation sickness. Later, in verse 19, an
inflated figure of 50,000 were smitten.
In 2 Samuel 6:6-7, Uzzah touches the Ark to keep it from falling and drops dead.
That may have been a heart attack but was more likely an electrical charge. It
does seem reasonable to believe that when the ETs were circling Earth the Ark
was a sending and receiving set powered by electricity and protected from the
uninitiated by a lethal jolt. So whatever was in the Ark or on it, it was not to
be touched, looked into or crowded around. There's no way of knowing exactly
what kind of power the Ark had, but it was obviously power from another and a
more advanced civilization.
On reading the Bible, one might ask such questions as why wasn't Aaron punished
for making the golden calf and why did the Lord kill Moses? Neither question can
be answered from a religious standpoint but both are simple when considering the
interests of extra-terrestrials.
The ETs didn't really do anything for the people. And when you read of the huge
amount of livestock sacrificed to them you'll understand why the Israelites had
to be convinced the ETs were not men from another solar system, but gods.
The sacrifices were the core of the matter. The people were taught that they
were burnt and their smoke was a ''sweet savor unto the Lord". Of course a
lot was burnt for effect. But it's only reasonable to suppose most of the meat
was transported up into the ships. Also, the ETs ate just like you and I.
Exodus 25:29-30 tells of the Lord's eating utensils. The altar in the tabernacle
was not an altar but a cookstove. Altars don't need grates. (Ex. 27:3-4). Exodus
29:22-25 even describes the Lord's menu. Aaron was most likely the Lord's chief
attendant and even his cook. (Ex. 28-30).
So Aaron was as close to the Lord as anyone. Had Aaron believed the Lord(s) to
be a god or gods he would not have made the golden calf, (Ex. 32:1-5), no matter
what the people wanted.
Aaron was an opportunist who played on every side. He told Moses one of the
biggest whoppers in the Bible and his trusting brother probably believed him.
(Ex. 32:21-24). Actually, the ETs needed this cynical opportunist as a front
man, so Aaron was spared.
But Moses was a different matter. His main work was finished but "his eye
was not dim, nor his natural forces abated'', Deut. 34:7. Bible scholars give
all kinds of reasons why Moses was kept out of the Promised Land but Deut.
34:4-7 gives none. The truth may be that it would not do for the honest and
sincere Moses to blow the ET's cover as he sat around the camp fires reminiscing
about his closeness to the Lord.
Going back to the hardening of Pharaoh's heart, we can only suppose the ETs had
coached Moses and Aaron to be so arrogant that Pharaoh could not give in without
seeming weak to his people. What with the demonstrations of Moses' (ET) power,
Pharaoh was challenged and so could not back down.
At any rate, the Israelites got away only to end up in an inhospitable desert
with the Promised Land before them. It seems the ETs really believed the
Israelites, softened by centuries of peace and relatively easy living, could
just march into Canaan and take over.
But the ETs were people, not gods. The land they had promised the Israelites was
not theirs, nor was it known to them. From their ships it looked like only small
villages surrounded by many miles of nothing. Had they had god-like knowledge
there would have been no need to send spies. Read the 13th chapter of Numbers
and you'll see that the ETs had no idea of the strength of the Canaanites.
In the same chapter the spies return and ten of the twelve report that the
territory cannot be taken by the Israelites. You want screaming and bitching?
Read chapter 14 of Numbers where Moses nearly lost his life to the now angry
mob. The Lord intervenes and saves Moses and Moses has to talk the Lord out of
killing the lot. So instead of killing them and being proved an incompetent for
setting the people a task which they simply were not up to, the Lord laid all
the blame on them. Then the ET did the only thing possible to save the mission.
In decreeing that only those under twenty years of age and their children should
see the Promised Land, he not only saved face but guaranteed that when the real
campaign began, only the young, the toughened and the fanatic would be in the
battles. (Num. 14:26-35).
Although the warring lasted for many years the Lord was not able to help the
Israelites to take all the land promised, as you'll see if you read the whole of
Joshua chapter 13.
Even so, the tribes had been so conditioned for war that they had to fight
anyone and each other and so had no time for the Lord. So he/they said to hell
with it and left. It's hard to tell when the ETs actually left. The books after
Joshua have the tribes so embroiled in petty intrigues and fratricidal wars that
not even real gods could have kept their attention.
Needless to say, whatever the ETs had planned for the Israelites they failed
miserably. Not only did they fail in the promise, but their "land of milk
and honey" was just about the worst choice ETs could have made for their
servants. It was a main caravan route, hotly contested by the Egyptians,
Philistines, Syrians, etc. It's been an international battleground for thousands
of years; the last place a real god would choose in which to be served by a
people of peace and plenty.
Actually, the first six books of the Bible read more like science fiction than
religion if you only put the tale in its proper perspective. Just imagine you
were one of the numerous Lords (Captains) visiting this planet off and on for
Your ancestors had turned a race of Neanderthals into Cro-Magnons who believed
ETs were gods. Now it's your job to mold them into a race of obedient servants
with their own defensible territory who will supply your orbiting people with
all the planet has to offer.
That's what the ETs wanted. They did their best to isolate the Israelites from
foreign influence. They used all their technology to make the Israelites believe
the ETs were gods to whom magic was natural. They gave them endless laws and
rituals to keep them so busy they wouldn't have time to think.
But they couldn't give the majority of the people what they needed to achieve
the good life, and the freedom to think and to create. So the ETs melted away,
leaving little more than legends and ceremonies to remember them by.
There is no reason for us to feel harshly toward the ETs. Nor need we be
grateful, since all they did was for themselves. But they were, literally, our
creators. First by genetic selection and then by artificial insemination and
mating. So, in a sense, they haven't gone. They're here; they're us.
