UFOS and God
February 8, 2009 11:09pm CST
Several nights ago I saw a UFO. It was a strange light in the sky that seemed to move in a way that I could not explain. Should I jump to the conclusion that it was an alien spacecraft or should I conclude that it was a UFO, an object that I did not have sufficient information to explain, so was unidentified by me? If we look at our world there are thing that science can not explain. Can I justify saying that god did it or that it is supernatural because science can't explain it?

There are many things happening in this universe. Many of them we witness every day and many of them we have not witnessed so far. Sky is full of stars and other unidentified objects. The light which you saw may be a UFO, may be it was something which our science is ignorant about.

Did you see with the naked eye or with some telescope to have a "closer" view at it? How high do you think it was? I am only asking or a ballpark estimate. Like if it was "sort of" in line with the planets or distant stars? Or wqas it in the lower atmosphere? You said its movements were fast and in a smooth curve or zig-zag way? How long could you observe it. Befor ethinking of God or aliens let us eliminate all known objexts and effects.

may you just see a meteor, because a lot of people reported they see a UFO, but actually just a meteor or a nature phenomena, or a plane near you. For me is better for us if think the science first, because most of them can be explain. Why UFO is not taking major interest in academic is my is not make profit or some people that see them just want to be popular. We must wait because some country like to investigate them, Like NASA launch Keppler Satellite to see if another planet like earth is exist. Let the science take them, not the supernatural or else.

Hi Chiang, I don't know if what you saw was a UFO or not, but enough people have witnessed sightings to make me believe that there are such things. Of course it would be crazy for us to think that this earth, this little piece of dust, is the only inhabited planet in this universe and we know that there are innumerable universes. I suspect there are beings on other planets that are far superior to us and could come here whenever they wanted. There may of course others that are behind us. There is nothing supernatural, just things that we can't explain yet. Blessings.

Well, firstly; no you should not "jump to the conclusion" that it was an alien spacecraft/UFO. If it is a secluded event, then you should just think your mind played a game with you because it was dark out. If it becomes reoccuring, then you may want to report it and consider it a unidentified flying object. This does not mean it is "aliens" (though, that seems possible considering the spacial attributes of the universe). I do not think you could explain it away using God, either. Considering mankind is exploring the universe outside of our atmosphere, it is possible that other "people" exist elsewhere who are also able to do the same. I do think science CAN explain everything, though some things take time. To explain something like God makes no sense as there is no evidence of his existance that is substantial and can be directly related to him. Even ghosts and paranormal experiences are increasingly being documented. These are things beyond our visual and usually audio realm. Pretty amazing.

No and yes. First, you shouldn't say that God did it, you should say that you believe God did it (if that's what you believe). Second, it is supernatural until science comes up with an explanation for it. Once this happens, it ceases to be supernatural, and becomes a natural occurrence, however rare it might be. I myself do not believe in a "magical" God, but I do believe that nature has a consciousness. And as I understand, so do most scientists. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that even some of today's very most famous and outspoken "atheists," including Professor Richard Dawkins, are not actually devoid of theistic beliefs. They just don't believe in doctrine. Polls show that an average of 40% of scientists from various disciplines believe in "God," specifically, a God you can pray to "in expectation of receiving an answer." This doesn't include the pantheists, panentheists, and deists. Apparently, very few scientists actually believe in blind chance. According to Einstein, "Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe, a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble." This doesn't mean we are supposed to proclaim God's existence, and Einstein himself did not do this. But we are entirely justified in being honest, and stating our belief.

That was might be a supernatural object or a UFO.But it was likely to be a artificial satellite launched by any country for achieving some scientific goals.There are many stories about UFO.Yet no scientific basis have been revealed about UFO.To bring God here is to simplify a subject.

^_^ Howdy!.... Chiang_Mai_boy!.... LOL!.... That's so very cool Chiang_Mai_boy. Maybe a flying being holding a light. Have you seen the Planet Venus it is so very bright. I think you can see Jupiter also. It means we have to learn more about knowledge and wisdom. Light is a symbol of knowledge and the radiating light and the power within that is wisdom. The three magi or the three wise men from Jesus birth. They were great astrologers and have study heavenly bodies all of their life. And mostly they study all of the knowledge of the scriptures and the long past centuries of generations by generation of a prophecy that a great king will be born. This king will suffer to free his people from slavery. These three wise men are gentiles or not Jewish they say they came from Persia (Iran) or Pakistan or others I don't know they said they are the men from the East. At the birth of Jesus they just follow the star just like on the scriptures have said. And they found Him only on a simple manger that was not really fit for a real king. And the three wise men just did what a real child born king should be really like. They offered symbolic gift of gold, frankincense and myrrh. ^_^ Thanks!.... and Enjoy!.... myLot!....
