I think he may have lost his mind :/

DD 11 yo just came in to tell me about the UFO she, her brother and dad saw over their house the other night. Cool, right?

Nope!

Her dad went on to explain how God made everything on Earth. Therefore Aliens would actually be demons/ fallen angels in disguise, here to tempt us into sin.

Fortunately she had a hard time keeping a straight face as she recounted the story.
I guess she tried to have a reasonable conversation with Dad but he kept going back to the Bible- so she went back in and turned on cartoons.

  • Points to DD for trying to have a conversation with him and even more points for keeping a straight face when repeating the story. :)

  • I'm pretty sure it says somewhere that "God created the Earth AND the Heavens"

    Another example of people taking the parts they want from the bible, and forgetting the parts that don't suit their argument at the moment.

  • Some religious girl I once knew told me there cannot be aliens because God only had one son to die for the sins of the world.

    Couldn't Jesus have an alien brother?

  • Oh, and there are many theorists who believe that the virgin Mary was artificially inseminated by beings from a ufo. Making Jesus half-extraterrestrial!!

  • Um...if God made everything on Earth...didn't he make everything everywhere else as well?

    *I've never heard that God only made the Earth and what is on it...

    Yup I would say he might be a bit off his center point.
