Does the Church acknowledge so called alien visitations or visions?
The Church doesn’t acknowledge them, but doesn’t deny the possibility either.
My girlfriend has recently told me that she believes she was visited by Martians whose visit to Earth are imminent. She tells me she lost most to all of her senses during this vision. She solidly believes in this and is frightened out of her mind. Her reasoning for this is that not too long ago, contact was lost with a rover on Mars. She thinks that this vision is a response to this.
Pick up this months copy of the National Geographic Magazine. There’s an entire article about the Mars Rover, and plenty of pictures of Mars. No Martians though.
I have a couple of guesses as to how this happened. It could be an actual visit, but I guessed it could also be a case of sleep paralysis, which is how most “visions” occur. I also considered the possibility that it could also be a visit from Satan to her. She is a confirmed Catholic who has recently returned to church after about two or three months. I thought this was coincidence enough.
Could be a moment of schizophrenia. My aunt had it and had visions of Jesus, Mary and just about every saint. Her behavior confirmed that the visions were not real.
What do you people think? Thanks for your help. This is driving me nuts.
Well, I believe in the possibility of life in other solar systems. I never saw a UFO much less aliens from another planet, but my reading an interest about space and the solar systems, lead me to believe that God didn’t create it all, just for us here on earth.
Also, should aliens from another world make it here to earth? They’ll be so far superior to us, that it will be beyond belief.
That being said, in the book, “War of the Worlds,” by H. G. Wells, he ends it with the aliens being defeated through disease which they contacted through us. He states something to the effect that, God created diseases that that we would become immune from, as a means of protecting us from alien invasions.
So, tell you girlfriend to get the movie or the book, the War of the Worlds, and pay close attention to how it ends.
