This is why Ufology is currently considered fringe pseudoscience by mainstream science and why Ufology will never be taken seriously enough for official scientific inquiry.
Science + Religion = Religion
, when a science teacher pulls out a Bible and starts teaching from it, it becomes a theology class. Dragging religion into Ufology makes it impossible to find a mainstream scientist willing to take the subject seriously enough to research aliens and their spacecraft, religion is an obstacle to finding the truth about aliens and not a way to find the truth about aliens.
Nobody's saying Christianity should be the "only" paradigm applied to UFOs. And I remember seeing Atheism, empirical science (Jurgen
), Agnosticism (a certain unnamed eye doctor
), Mysticism (myself), even Islam and untold other models getting applied, Antrik. Carol is free to compare Aliens with whatever she wants (and she proposes Demons, the more or less Christian/R.C. variety), and we can give our opinions in return, whatever!
I doubt mainstream scientists are losing sleep over our UfoE postings here. And we do not have certain knowledge concerning how religion and aliens relate. (There are UFO cults, = new religions!, the Bible speaks of UFOs and abductions, the Quran refers to Jinn resembling evil aliens/spirits, and maybe just maybe our Gods are assorted ET visitors!!)
