Occasionally people write in who are confused about how aliens fit in to our ministry mandate, or how focusing on this issue is helpful to anyone. J. W. wrote in to share his experience, and how Alien Intrusion helped him to make sense of it. Gary Bates’ responses are interspersed.

Hello Gary Bates,

I’ve just read ‘Alien Intrusion’. When I was 7 or 8 years old I was apparently ‘visited’ a number of times, although I can’t remember a thing.

It can often start when one is young, so that you become accustomed and conditioned over time.

I awoke with a stinging scoop mark on my right leg, 3 red marks in a triangular formation on my left tummy, had nose bleeds from left nostril, pyjamas were inside out etc.

As you will have read in the book there are physical traces. For example, I didn’t cover ‘alien implants’, but wrote about it here. See creation.com/aliens-and-skeptics.

This led to a lifelong interest in UFOs and related issues, and I have spent countless hours reading UFO books and researching on the Internet. I often listen to ‘Coast to Coast’, and Whitney Strieber’s podcasts and visit the websites of Hoagland and Linda Howe to name just a few. Some people can indeed develop a mania.

That’s understandable because one is often seeking explanations as to what happened. Because it manifested as alleged aliens or UFOs etc. one is naturally drawn to literature or media about same, believing it to be authoritative. However, because of predominant preexisting evolutionary concept of the universe, the writers of that material have not even considered a spiritual explanation, and therefore a vital source of information is basically left out. However, I recommend that you take a different turn in your life and leave this stuff well and truly behind. BTW I was interviewed on Coast to Coast for some 3 hours many years ago.

Then, I purchased your book—and the line about Jesus dying once for all stopped me in my tracks. Your argument that UFOs etc are ‘deceptions’ manifested by Satan and his minions does seem to best fit the facts; and, for example, it explains why abductees never come back with a physical item and if they do it ‘disappears’ from the cupboard etc….
