Did Extraterrestrials Part The Red Sea? (VIDEO)


The theory that many of the miraculous events of the Bible could be explained by the intervention of aliens first struck Downing in the early 1960s.


A group of people has a mass sighting of a huge, airborne glowing object that follows them for many miles and even protects them from attack. Someone is seen being lifted into the sky on a beam of light. A man witnesses unexplained circular vehicles with living creatures on board.

Pretty much sounds like your typical, modern-day UFO sightings, right? Wrong. These are vivid accounts of stories from the Old and New Testaments.

"If UFOs are some type of intelligent power from another world, they may have been around for millions of years and may have been involved in the development of the biblical religion, and I do believe that is the case," said the Rev. Barry Downing, a retired Presbyterian minister.

In his 1968 book, "The Bible and Flying Saucers" (Marlowe), Downing suggests that extraterrestrials in technologically advanced spaceships played a major part in events depicted in the Bible.

"You can go through the Bible and look for signs of things that hover in the sky and seem to be intelligently controlled and interact with the biblical people," Downing told AOL News.


Downing, who served 34 years as pastor of the Northminster Presbyterian Church in Endwell, N.Y., has tirelessly researched this material for decades. As a student at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, he specialized in the relationship between natural science and theology and is listed in "Who's Who In Theology and Science."

The theory that many of the miraculous events of the Bible could be explained by the intervention of aliens first struck Downing in the early 1960s.





"When I was in seminary, the conflict between science and religion had become fairly clear, and some of the more liberal professors basically said, 'We can't believe in things in the Bible, like the resurrection and ascension of Jesus, we can't believe in the angel world — this is all mythology.'


 

"But when you dismiss these things as mythology, you end up with a god with no power, and nobody's going to bother with a god with no power."

 

It was during his years at the University of Edinburgh that Downing started thinking about the possibility of visits from outer space. And he wondered how that might to apply to the concept of the angels in the Bible.
