Is Stephen Hawking Right About Hostile Aliens?


Just a note here as to why I wrote this article. Yesterday I received an email from Genie, my wife, which subject line asked the question poised in the article title, “Is Stephen Hawking Right About Hostile Aliens?” While I wondered why this seemed so important to her, I did not ask her because she had mentioned it before and I had somewhat dismissed it as a passing curiosity. But this time the question had struck me as carrying some importance and so I set down to write the following to her about my view of Hawkings words. Little did I realize until after this article had been written and sent back to Genie, and she had read it, that the question was not her own but rather the title of an article she had found on MSN News and she thought I would be interested in reading it. We got a good laugh at the miscommunication and I’ve ended up with a much better entry for this month than if I had planned on writing it. Here is that answer:


Is Stephen right? Well, from my research I’m sorry to say that in a way he is, but his time scenario is off track. I do not normally speak of nor talk about such things because it is a source of inevitable fear, unnecessarily, but since you have asked the question I feel obligated to give an answer.

By limiting our basic understanding of history to what is socially acceptable and which generally creates less fear in our human society we discount the fact that this planet has been visited by extraterrestrials since even before recorded history began and MUFON’s very existence shows we still are. This is evidenced in many cave drawings, “dark age” paintings and some literature.


Even the Holy Scriptures, not only of the Hebrews but of many other cultures, speak of these visitations from “the heavens.” However the King James Version of the Hebraic/Christian Scriptures the message is carried one step forward. Jesus said he saw a great battle in the heavens where Satan and his angels were cast out of heaven into the Earth (IS 14:12; LU 10:18; RE 9:1-2). Notice that the indication in the passages here are that the dark angels were cast “into” not “onto” the Earth which here makes a great difference in the explanation of the overall, universal battle between the forces of good and evil when it is animalized. The fact is that the angels, according to Jesus, successfully drove Satan (Lucifer) and his band of renegade angels out of the heavens and, in their rebellious nature, they came to earth in a final attempt to get mankind’s loyalty hoping that the commitment of the YHWH’s finest creation would give them the power to regain their lost position in the Universe.


Thus, the answer to your question, “Could Steven be right?” is, in a way answered by a limited, “yes” he could be but only when keeping in mind that we do not know where all of these UFO’s are coming from and some could be coming from within the planet’s own atmosphere. In fact several people have claimed to see them arising from “the bottomless deep” (the oceans) large, natural lakes and rivers. With this in mind, it is important to realize that Stephen Hawkings denies any form of religiosity and thus would deny the idea that Jesus knew anything about universal societies or holy wars. However our own Holy Bible records that Earth has already been invaded by hostile spirits (fallen angels) whose main goal is to captivate mankind and persuade humans into performing battle against the Creative powers, the YHWH, themselves.


So, is Steven correct? Only partially. But keep in mind that since he does not specifically accept scriptures as statement of fact, then he does not have the whole picture. Is it possible that UFO’s have non-benevolent beings who could want only to enslave, encamp or destroy us here on earth? Of course it is possible, but the scenario described has already occurred in scriptural history and is not likely to occur again.


There are some preachers who have made the same assumptions about the visitations from other parts of the galaxy who gave no possible hope of good coming from space exploration. But the problem is a simple one, where do the UFO’s actually come from? Are they all absolutely from “outer space” as organizations like MUFON try to lead us to believe? Or have we already been invaded by rascal spirits who have taken over the minds and bodies of the human race?


Isn’t this the real message of most Protestant denominations on prophecy? Yet the simple fact is that the same prophecy which they preach so much about and which they argue so much about tells us that the battle between humans and the demons who seek to enslave us has already been won by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. It goes on to tell us that the final victory when these demons, along with their leader, will be cast into “outer darkness” will be at the time when the “New Jerusalem” will come down from above even as Jesus left from Earth to the heavens.


What more can be said? Is Steven Hawkings right? Place his statement back over 6100 years ago and perhaps he was. But today we have the demonstrated truth, through Jesus, that our hope comes from above.

  1. Have you ever heard the idea about the Nephilim and their existence even today? There is an idea out there that the “aliens” are actually fallen angels attempting to create more Nephilim in the earth. Thought I’d mix the pot and throw that out there.

    • Indeed I have heard of the term “Nephilim” which is a popular teaching amongst conspiracy theorist; however while such teachers site the idea as being promoted in the Christian Holy Bible, the term cannot be found there and, according to Wikipedia, it is only mentioned loosely twice in the Hebrew (Bible) Torah in reference to a group of genetic misfits caused by the comingling between the fallen angels and mankind’s women as mentioned in Genesis 6:1-4. While this is possible, it is unrealistic for us to be able to determine who those “giants” are today; not by size, nor by action, nor by any other method of classification can a person be considered as good or evil. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” according to the Apostle, Paul (Romans 3:23).

      While such historical records, both in religious circles and nonreligious alike, seem to indicate the possibility of “other worldly” influences in human existence, without the study of comparative religions, which are both living and past religions, it is impossible to understand the type of position these crossbreeds have had in human history. Could the Greek and Roman pantheon of gods and goddesses have simply been stories of the Nephilim? Perhaps.

      What about other religions with their long lists of gods, or the saints of the Catholic Church, or even the disciples themselves? Such accusations could quickly reach the point of being ridiculous, couldn’t it? While the possibility of there being Nephilim present on the earth today being created by the fallen angels who are on the planet we cannot possibly know who they are with our current knowledge without much speculation. I believe it is this type of issue which is the reason why Jesus told us to not judge one another. While there are people on the planet who seem to fit the description of being a giant, not only physically as described, but also intellectually and spiritually, we cannot assume that they are necessarily descendants of fallen angels. We must remember that our “human species” was created to be the image of God and thus we have the capability to do great things. Even Christ said, before he ascended into the heavens, that we would do even greater things than he had done while on Earth (John 1:50).

      Yes, the Nephilim seem to be a very real entity on this planet, but we must realize that while we cannot be sure who they are now, that God has provided a better way of finding hope on a very chaotic planet. Our hope is not in waging war with these descendants of fallen angels, but in the fact that the Christ, who has proven to us a better way, will come in the clouds as he once promised to deliver us from the grip of the darkness of this world. We must remember to keep looking up.

  2. Your article made me think of Kurt Vonnegut
    “If it weren’t for the message of mercy and pity in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, I wouldn’t want to be a human being. I would just as soon be a rattlesnake.”
    and also Monty Python about intelligent life above (there being bugger all here down on earth)
    but seriously, what do we really know? We know Jesus believed in love above avarice
    and that as herd animals we need to do what is best for the herd and not just for ourselves in order to survive as a species.
    Another quote I love and fits in with your writing beautifully is by CS Lewis
    “God has landed on this enemy-occupied world in human form…The perfect surrender and humiliation was undergone by Christ: perfect because He was God, surrender and humiliation because He was man”
