I was abducted by aliens one time. I asked if I could take their pic and they said no. Something about how they were ok with blurry images back in the day, but that technology was getting too advanced and they were using cloaking devices and allowing no photography now. I really wanted that pic!

lol, only one time?   Wink

From my own experience, things can look completely real, like a human, but you will know right off the bat that there is something terribly, terribly wrong.

I'm still pretty sure that I saw my patron about two years ago right when I decided to convert and my dad had relapsed. It was in a dream, we were sitting on a bench, I was crying and he was hugging me telling me it would be okay.

It does, and prayers.  Haven't had anything happen in my house, only in one other person's house where an old freemason had died, and it just looked at me, went to the window, and said to something outside, "This one isn't like the others."  And then he left.  He looked like a regular guy.  The whole time I just prayed the Psalm, "Let God arise and His enemies be scattered, let those who hate Him flee before His face..."  I found out the name of the old guy, and put him on my prayers for the departed list.

Asteriskos and me, uncomplicated test subjects.  Smiley

I ran to the monastery the next day. Actually I drove, a little over the speed limit.

In that movie, the "Mothman" looked human, but there was something not quite right with him/her/it.

No kidding! My buddy and I saw it in the theater when it first came out. We saw it at night. We were both freaked out afterwards. But my buddy had an interesting theory. He said that the Mothman might be the angel of death.

If a demon lacks a physical body, then how could they physically abduct a human?
If ancient aliens didn't exist, how were the demons able to abduct Orthodox Christians?



I've never seen this show or a clip of it and have only seen this internet bit here and yet I can't stop laughing everytime someone uses it. I think Nick or someone explained the context to me, but it really doesn't need any.

It might just be the unsignified signifier.

Speaking of freaky movies that deal with UFO's and psychic or supernatural phenomena, "Fire In The Sky" is a great movie. Along with "The Mothman Prophecies," it's my favorite movie of this genre. Even if these movies are highly exaggerated and perhaps deviate from the historical accounts, they still leave you wondering what in the heck really happened. Too bizarre to be attributed merely to hoaxes or to the power of suggestion.

So, being hypothetical, what if aliens were real? And they offered ten humans the opportunity to come live on their home planet? I'd hope that the Orthodox would jump on this opportunity to do Missionary work on their planet, before the Evangelicals took over and polluted their planet.

I have a feeling that if there are aliens out there, they are primitives.  When we run into them we'll just do what we usually do.  Kill off most of them, convert some of them, and study their past a hundred years or so after their civilization if obliterated.  It's easier to admire the dead.

I don't believe in Aliens.

I suppose there could hypothetically be aliens, but the evidence hasn't come out to convince me.

Let alone do I believe they are the same things as demons.

I'm sure that there are many evangelicals that would love to decry ET as the Devil incarnate.

I believe the article. Truth is that there are many "spiritual phenomena" out there and they are very strange, yet most people don't know or are inclined to not believe them. Just like the author said, if the saints experienced all sorts of demonic attacks; and I would add that, in the Bible, in the episode of the plagues, people were able to perform some frightening things through the power of demons, and then St. Cyprian was able to work with the power of satan and do all sorts of things (killing, teleporting people, or whatever he was doing) -- so then these things have always happened and will happen again with God's will and in the way that He wants (according to our times); the spiritual is here, even more than we are aware or we are here ourselves.

If the Devil is capable of appearing as a brilliant angel to deceive the faithful, what's stopping him from appearing in a form reminiscent of an extraterrestrial being? Especially in this day and age, what with our gaze more firmly pointed at the stars then ever before. It's a veritable gold mine for demonic entrapment.

Many fathers believed that Angels had very slim body which was very different from us.
They also believed that the angels which turned to demons had now fat body ( not fatter than us but than other angels.)

I have been thinking. Why exactly would the Devil appear in the form of an extraterrestrial, when all the majority of people seem to do, when they hear such stories, is to laugh?

I mean, people might be convinced that we are not alone in the Universe, but how many are actually taking the "I was abducted by aliens" stories seriously?
