Reviewing ALIEN INTRUSION - a non-fiction book by Gary Bates Pt. 2

In the last article we reviewed the first half of this book, and dealt with much of the more 'earthly' aspects of this 'alien intrusion' and why such visitations as these couldn't in all likelihood be actual biological entities from another world.

In this second half we will explore some of the reasons why these visitors are more otherworldly than we would typically suppose. Rather than being ETI's, a more plausible designation would be an 'IDH' or Inter-dimensional Hypothesis, if by this we mean that these entities are from a different 'reality' than the one that we share in this physical universe. 'Physical' is the key referential in this case, as opposed to 'spiritual' which would more aptly describe these IDE's or Inter-dimensional Entities.

In line with the IDH, we have more in this century, indeed, more in these past few decades a phenomenon known as 'abductions' or as some of these who've encountered this would call them 'experiences' (they prefer this term as 'abduction' connotes a more violent procedure of acquisition and encounter).

Gary Bates comments: 

"Today the most controversial aspect of UFOlogy is the claim that people are actually being abducted by aliens. Research polls such as Roper polls, suggest that as many as four million American citizens (to say nothing of those around the globe), from all walks of life, claim to have been kidnapped against their will and subjected to medical and examination procedures aboard alien spacecraft, along with bizarre sexual encounters. 
"This phenomenon is occurring all over the world, and if true, it is a far cry from the benign and friendly contacts that have been claimed in previous years (not your friendly E.T. that is just wanting to 'phone home'). 
"Have the aliens suddenly turned 'nasty' or is it that we just don't understand their culture and methodology? Perhaps they don't say 'please' on Pleiades! Despite the allegedly (sometimes) horrific treatment of abductees, the overall message of the space brothers has remained the same. They still claim that they are here to help us, prophesying about the future events of the Earth and mankind's fate in general."

One of the earliest cases of abductions is recorded to have occurred in 1957, when a Mr. Antonio Villas Boas was driving his tractor when he noticed a shiny, silvery oval shaped object hovering overhead, and though he tried to escape it, he was nonetheless seized upon and taken aboard their 'spaceship' where he was examined naked, and then seduced by a "human-like female". This case was not well publicized due to its sexual nature.

Gary Bates recollects a case that most UFOlogists and UFO enthusiasts know very well:

"A much more famous case was that of Betty and Barney Hill which occurred in September of 1961. The Hills were driving home one night when they observed a bright-colored object which seemed to be following them. Barney stopped to observe the object through binoculars, and was shocked to see faces staring back at him from the windows on the craft. Scared, Barney got back into the car and drove off. Soon after, the couple heard beeping sounds emanating from the back of their car. That was the last thing they remembered before they arrived home feeling a bit disoriented after a journey that took nearly two hours longer than expected. The 'missing time' is very common among abductees."

Betty began doing some reading after their experience, and they both started experiencing strange and disturbing dreams. Years later they were subjected by a hypnotherapist to a hypnotic trance (itself a rather controversial procedure) and recalled things that they hadn't remembered before. Apparently Barny was telepathically controlled to drive to a remote forested area where they were then taken aboard a spaceship and witnessed aliens of the classic description - gray skinned, short beings with large, dark eyes and small mouths (Betty recalled them having big noses, something unique from the usual descriptions).

One thing that is rather impressive is the fact that Betty asked these aliens where they came from; the alien produced a star map and pointed out the location of their 'home world', and when Betty later recalled the coordinates, it was confirmed that the diagram was an accurate depiction of the star system surrounding Zeta Reticuli.

There are those who discount this experience by the Hills as they bear similarities of such contemporary films as Invaders From Mars and The Outer Limits episode "The Bellaro Shield" which aired 12 days before their first hypnosis session. They claim that the details of their 'experience' when undergoing hypnosis simply allowed them to recall what they had seen on television, with some slight variations.

Many skeptics and debunkers credit such films and episodes for the experiences people claim to have with alien abductions, yet in Third World nations, such abductions are happening as well, where those people who are taken have had no such influence by media.

All across the globe people are being abducted, with no discrimination to social, political, economic, ethnic, intellectual and geographical considerations.

UFO skeptic Robert Todd Carroll even observes:

"The ancients and medievals probably would have laughed at anyone who would have claimed to have been picked up by aliens from another planet for sex or reproductive surgery. The only reason anyone takes the abductees seriously today is because their delusions do not blatantly conflict with our cultural beliefs that intergalactic space travel is a real possibility and that it is highly probable that we are not the only inhabited planet in the universe. In other times, no would have been able to take these claims seriously."

Its interesting to note that in ages past, other 'experiencers' have had encounters with strange beings, they just happen to not be 'aliens from another planet'. Rather, according to the research of Jacques Vallee, people recounted events and situations in which they interacted with fairies, goblins, elves, and 'the good people', who snatched them away to 'fairy land'. Valle studied folk stories, occult and religious texts and found that these abductees of another age experienced missing time, a profound change of perception of life, and stories in which 'changelings' (half human-half creature) were born, midwifed by the abductees.

Vallee states:

"I pointed out in Invisible College that the structure of the abduction stories was identical to that of occult rituals. I had shown in Passport to Magnolia that contact with ufonauts was only a modern extension of contact with non-human consciousness in the form of angels, demons, elves, and sylphs. Such contact includes abduction, ordeal (including surgical operations) and sexual intercourse with the aliens (i.e. creatures). It often leaves marks and scars on the body and the mind, as do UFO abductions."

Gary Bates says that while skeptics would resort to entirely naturalistic explanations for all sightings and all abduction scenarios, UFO hunters and enthusiasts are willing to believe that every sighting and supposed abduction is the result of aliens; both of these allow their bias to influence their perception to the exclusion of any other possibility.

Yet there is a slim margin between both extremes of biased perception, between the skeptics and the UFO fanatics. That which is in the between holds a grain of truth. There are a few select cases in which some genuine phenomenon is taking place, and we've all heard about the C.A.S. or Classic Abduction Scenario - the abduction itself, the examination, a conference between the aliens and the abductee, in some cases a tour of the 'ship' is given, and in lesser cases an otherworldly journey to the alien's home world. 

Some witnesses claim a theophany occurs during the experience, the 'voice of God' is heard - aliens sometimes are disguised (transformed) into the image of Jesus, the Pope, well known celebrities or deceased family members (as seen in the film Contact). After all is done, the abductee is returned and then there is the aftermath.

Gary Bates discusses this last part:

"Although initially the abductee may have no conscious recollection of events, they may suffer from significant aftereffects for weeks, and even years to come. Nausea, pain, lesions may all be manifested. The most telling effects occur on the experiencer's personality and outlook on life or world view. 
"It has been noticed by the majority of researchers that the person undergoes a type of religious transformation. They have also suggested that instigating a belief change in the abductee could be the reason for the whole enterprise. Surveys have overwhelmingly shown that the majority of abductees subsequently develop an interest, and openly participate in New Age/occultic or Eastern-type mystical religion."

Some also claim to be able to regularly astral travel after their experience. Such travel seems perceptively real to them, with sense of motion, clarity, heightened sense awareness . . . one such lady described it as 'more real than real'. They also claim to acquire psychic ability, and precognition (knowing something is going to happen beforehand).

These same experiences and acquisition of spiritual powers can be found in occult practices, and with the involvement of demonic spirits.

This was illustrated for me personally the other night when we rented the film, The Fourth Kind, which later proved to be a hoax (the film claimed to use actual archived footage from real people who were involved in the incidents that occurred in the year 2000 in Gnome, Alaska). Regardless of the fact that this was a film that employed the same tactics of contrived realism akin to Orson Welles' radio play The War of the Worlds, the sort of events and occurrences that were portrayed in the film were extremely accurate to C.A.S. and demonic experiences.

There is a long list of experiences that are not commonly known but nonetheless occur in abductions, which are listed here (note: some of these are extremely disturbing and if you are of a sensitive nature, you should by-pass this list):

- aliens can alter our perceptions of our surroundings
- They can control what we think we see and can appear to us in any number of guises and shapes.
- Abductees receive marks such as scoops, straight line scars, single puncture wounds, multiple punctures, large bruises, three and four fingered claw marks and triangles of every sort (these same markings are not uncommon in occult activities and rituals).
- Female abductees often suffer serious gynecological problems which lead to cysts, tumors, cancer of the breast and uterus, and to hysterectomies.
- A surprising number of abductees suffer from serious illnesses they didn't have before their encounters. These have led to surgeries, debilitation, and even death from causes the doctors can't identify.
- Experiencers encounter more than just 'the grays' but also reptoidal beings, insectoid, blond and widow's peak have been seen during abductions.
- Experiencers are scoffed and jeered at by their captors; unknown fluids are injected into some abductees.
- Abductees - 'virgin cases' - report being taken to underground facilities where they see grotesque hybrid creatures, nurseries of hybrid humanoid fetuses, and vats of colored liquids filled with human body parts.
- Abductees claim to have seen other humans in these underground facilities being drained of blood, mutilated, flayed and dismembered and then stacked lifeless, like cords of wood, and they are threatened to end up like this if they don't cooperate.
- Aliens come into homes and temporarily remove young children, leaving their distraught parents paralyzed and helpless. In cases where a parent has been able to protest, the aliens insist that "the children belong to us."
- Aliens perform extremely painful experiments or procedures on abductees, saying that these acts are necessary, but give no explanation why; painful genital and anal probes are performed on children as well as adults.
- Aliens make predictions of an imminent period of global chaos and destruction. They say that a certain number of humans . . . will be rescued from the planet in order to continue the species either on another planet or back on Earth after the destruction is over. Many abductees report that they don't believe their alien captors and foresee instead a much more sinister use of the 'rescued' humans.

Dr. Vallee was correct in his assessment - These beings act deceptively and dishonestly and we have every reason to be suspicious of their motives, despite their claims that they are here "to help us". People who suffered these experiences have been scarred physically and emotionally for the rest of their lives.

It must be noted that in impartial research there is a consistent finding that most abductees have had previous involvement with the occult, even if on a minor basis; subsequent to their abduction, such involvement increases and they become more prone to New Age beliefs and practices.

As stated previously documented abductions reveal no distinguishment of the types of people that are taken; this includes people of every religious persuasion who've had these experiences, but with one notable exception: born-again, Bible believing Christians who "walk the talk"

A group called CE-4 discovered this surprising fact for themselves in their research. CE-4 members (about a dozen, residing in the state of Florida) are all trained field investigators for MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) and arguably the most respected clearing house for UFO reports.

Joe Jordan, president of CE-4, and his team had so many experiencers in Florida that they decided to do their own research independent of MUFON, and proceeded to go in a direction that no other organization went after one team member posed the question: "Are Christians being abducted?"

Wes Clark, co-founder of CE-4 along with Joe Jordan said the following:

"I had a belief in God, but that was about the extent of my spirituality. Joe was a crystal-rolling New Ager. Neither one of us had ever even considered a spiritual origin of the phenomenon. We had a hunch we were onto something."

CE-4 indeed found that people of all faiths claimed abductions (Jews, Hindus, Muslims, Christians - who espoused an intellectual assent in the existence of God, but didn't apply it personally); however those who were born again believers were conspicuous in their absence.

They came across one case where a man named 'Bill D.' claimed that while in the process of being abducted, he cried out the name of Jesus repeatedly, and once he did, the entire episode came to a grinding halt. This was the first time these men from CE-4 had ever heard of an abduction being stopped.

Wes Clark comments:

"As the number of cases mounted, the data showed that in every instance where the victim knew to invoke the name of Jesus Christ, the event stopped. Period. The evidence was becoming increasingly difficult to ignore."

It was rather confusing to Clark and Jordan at first as to why certain Christians were being abducted and others weren't. They decided to research the Bible by taking some courses and that's when things began to get clearer. They came to understand that the UFO phenomenon was completely spiritual in nature and resembled ancient stories and descriptions of what the Bible calls 'demons', stories taken from the text of this best-selling book.

John Keel, writer of the book, Operation Trojan Horse, writes:

"Demonology is . . . the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have seemingly co-existed with man throughout history. Thousands of books have been written on the subject, many of them authored by educated clergymen, scientists and scholars and uncounted numbers of well-documented demonic events are readily available to every researcher. The manifestation and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not entirely identical, to the UFO phenomenon itself. Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees . . . the devil and his demons can, according to the literature, manifest themselves in almost any form and can physically imitate anything from angels to monsters with glowing eyes. Strange objects and entities materialize and dematerialize in these stories, just as with UFOs and their splendid occupants appear and disappear, walk through walls, and perform other supernatural feats."

Clark and Jordan have since their research into this area become committed Christians themselves, and now understand that abduction by aliens is in all actuality a legitimate form of spiritual warfare, not against extraterrestrial entities from another planet, but against "principalities, and powers and the spiritual rulers of darkness".

Only in the power and name of Jesus Christ, by Christians who are walking in their spiritual authority granted to them by God are able to resist any such form of spiritual attack. However there are a few instances that show in extreme cases, Christians have been abducted, the most famous case being the Andreassson affair.

Betty Andreasson claimed to be a Christian who experienced multiple abductions over many years. This is a well documented and researched case but the reports reveal that Betty presumed that these were in fact, real aliens; when invited, she accepted to be taken aboard the ship. It would seem that those who espouse a belief in alien life elsewhere in the galaxy open themselves up to possible abduction, especially if they aren't discerning what presents itself as such alien life, when in reality, they are demonic forces.

Something to think about, if your world view holds out the possibility of alien life!

It is the hopes of this writer that this article is helpful to all who read it; that by examining the information this will lead to an alteration of the world view of the readers towards a greater clarity of how things really are.

For those who are not Christians of the biblical, spiritual sort that accept the Bible as a literal book of Truth, may you come to a greater and deeper understanding of what being a Christian really is, and thereby know the truth that sets us free. The LORD God is our only credible protection against the power of the enemy, Satan, in all his guises (be those 'aliens' or no).

For those who are not Christian at all, who could be classified from a biblical perspective as 'non-believers', I would ask you to consider Jesus Christ, and the inspired Word of God, the Bible, not merely for protection against 'aliens' but more importantly for salvation of your soul.

Further, it is my hope that if any who read this, has been a victim of abduction, that you would find courage and peace in knowing that there is deliverance from the nightmare of such an ordeal as this. You don't need to feel resigned to your dreadful fate; you can fight back and win! The Word states:

JOHN 6:37
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.


ROMANS 10:13
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

May we all exercise discernment in these last days, study dilgently in the scriptures and keep in an attitude of prayer, for the LORD Jesus Himself warned:


And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
