About the Author

As a lifelong fan of sci-fi, Gary Bates' extensive background in marketing and communication have positioned him well to present in a fast-paved, gripping read the findings of his specialist research into UFO phenomenon and associated extra-terrestrial beliefs. Unlike many UFO researchers, he avoids the 'one-size-fits-all' explanation. But in his research, along with uncovering many bizarre claims (and debunking some), leads the reader on a fascinating exploration of myth, mystery, and questions of who we are, how we came to be - and are we alone in this great big universe. A convert to Christianity, Gary recognizes the way in which UFO beliefs are rapidly escalating in society and the church,challenging the foundations of many faiths. For many years, Gary has been speaking to church audiences on science topics, including creation/evolution. He is currently the head of the ministry development department of what is possibly Australia's largest parachurch organization, one that has spawned sister offices in five other countries.

Bates quotes UFO researcher Dr. J. Allen Hynek in the book:

"The attitude we are taking in the Center for UFO Studies is that since we are going
to have scientists involved, we will push the physical approach as hard and far as
we can; instrumentation, physical evidence, photographs, radar records. If we are finally
forced by the evidence itself to go into the paranormal, then we will."

This is Bates' approach in this book and he does a superb job of exploring the subject:

- First, he traces the development of science-fiction.
- He explores "science-fact", demonstrating that intergalactic communication and travel is scientifically impossible.
- He examines the `evolution connection' to UFOs. To wit, IF, 1) life evolved here by chance; and 2) there are likely innumerable planet systems in the universe; THEN 3) it follows that life has doubtless evolved elsewhere. Interestingly, `aliens' often affirm the theory of evolution in their messages.
- Bates then offers a sound rebuttal of evolutionary theory. Further, he delineates the delicate balance of `finely-tuned' factors necessary for life to exist and how unlikely it is that such an environment exists outside of Earth.
- Bates' also examines the `religious connection'. This connection appears both in the messages of the `aliens' and in the lives of the contactees. The `alien' messages always reflect New Age beliefs, usually denying that Jesus is the Son of God. Also, those involved in the New Age or the Occult are far more likely than others to have such encounters. Many others become obsessed with these after encountering `aliens'.
- The author then examines what the Bible has to say about demons and their activities and the practices of those who worshipped them.

This book just confirmed to me that little voice that says, "there is something more to this". I really enjoyed this book, and I found that the way that it was written easy to read.

I liked how he looked back to media/history and follows the evolution of sightings, and how as time goes by we learn a little more about the agenda that these spiritual beings have for us as a society.

Funny thing... the week that I read this book, I saw aliens everywhere. On a cartoon for kids on the television, and on talk back radio they were talking about abductions and who has experienced them. The irony of it.

Anyway this book answers some gnawing questions that some may have, and for others it will give a little more insight and give a biblical perspective.

I am glad that I have purchased this book.

This is an incredible book. I couldn't put it down. Gary Bates does an incisive job of separating the chaff from the wheat on all things alien - all those nagging `could there really be?' type questions that a lifetime of exposure to science fiction engenders.

If you're keen on finding aliens alive and well in outer space, or crashed and cornered on earth, then be prepared for a let down. Gary's collation of evidence from leading science authorities clarifies and deflates the extraterrestrial hypothesis comprehensively. His detailed documentation of the Roswell wreckage and other icons of `aliana' (my term) likewise reduce these once-compelling mysteries to the ho-hum sort of human explanation that the imagination disfavors, but the intellect realizes is all too true.

But what about the `residuals' - those cases in which careful investigation reveals that genuine encounters with non-human intelligences _have_ occurred? This is where the books gets creepy. One page in particular (I won't spoil it by telling you which) sent chills down my spine. And ominously, there are reportedly millions (yes, _millions_!) of such encounters occurring, to people from virtually all walks of life (note - with a total lack of corresponding observations of space craft zipping in and out of the earth's atmosphere). This is something that, if it doesn't already affect you directly, will sooner or later happen to someone you know.

Given the malevolent nature of such encounters, as attested by truly stomach-turning contactee testimonies, this is something you (well, most of us) would want to avoid. Incredibly, there apparently is a way to avoid them. Did you notice that earlier I said "virtually" all walks of life?

Format: Paperback
First I want to say this isnt a Christian book about UFOs. This is a book about UFOs written by a Christian. Theres a big difference. Out of 10 chapters only the last two talk about the authours views of the situation covered in the first 8 chapters which are obviously going to be influenced by his belief system. So dont be scared away thinking this is a preachy Christian "tract". It isnt. Its a serious look at the data. Of course Christians should read this book as well.

The author has a very easy going writing sytle and once I started I couldnt put it down. Its a real page turner. For me its an excellent source because it compiles a LOT of data together in one handy book. The chapter on abduction was particularly disturbing. Before I read this book I was a hard line sceptic when it came to UFOs and abductions. I just thought everyone of them could be explained naturally. But this book has changed my mind. Sure the vast majority can still be explained away easily. But there is something going on.

These "aliens" are niether our friends or saviours. I highly recomend it to anyone who has any interest in science, science fiction, evoluton, Christinaity or UFOlogy.
