Overview

Some modern biblical scholars are beginning to take a new look at the stories in the bible and see if there are possible extraterrestrial explanations. The prophet Elijah was walking down the Jordan River when a chariot of fire appeared. Some believe that this could be mistaken for a UFO. Moses, too, might have been guided by alien protectors during the exodus. When the Red Sea was parted during the exodus, some biblical scholars think that it was in fact a UFO using its engines to spread the waters apart.

Angels could be extraterrestrial beings. Peter was helped to escap from jail by angels who came through the wall. This is similar to UFO visitation stories of today. Abraham too ran into angels who told him that his wife would become pregnant; this might be comparable to supposed alien telepathy. But most troubling of all is the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. One theorist speculated that it was in fact destroyed by a UFO using nuclear technology. Nevertheless, if belief in UFOs become more popular, it is likely to change the way stories in the bible are perceived.
