Christian apologist Ken Ham is rejecting the idea that alien life may explain the mysterious UFOs spotted by military aircraft, saying the Bible rules out intelligent life on other planets.
Ham, the founder and CEO of Answers in Genesis, made the comments this week on a blog and on the apologetics program Answers News while discussing a soon-to-be-released Pentagon report on unidentified flying objects (UFOs) captured on camera by military planes.
“Some speculate [the report] will provide vindication of the UFO-believing community,” Ham wrote on his blog.
The Bible, though, precludes the idea of intelligent life and aliens, Ham said.
“When you start with God’s Word, you can confidently say there are no intelligent beings on other planets. You see, God formed earth to be inhabited (Isaiah 45:18) – not Mars, Venus, or some other far-flung planet,” Ham wrote on his blog. “Also, when Adam sinned, his sin affected all of creation (Romans 8:22). Jesus came as the last Adam to save those of Adam’s race who will repent and believe. If there were intelligent aliens out there, they would suffer the effects of sin but couldn’t be saved because Christ died for mankind, not for aliens (1 Peter 3:18; Hebrews 9:27-28, 10:10). So, theologically, we know that aliens can’t (and don’t) exist.
