Alien Scriptures Book Review:

Whitely Strieber, author of Communion: A True Story considered Alien Scriptures: Extraterrestrials in the Holy Bible to be, "the best book ever written on the subject." Reverend Michael S. Carter's Alien Scriptures: Extraterrestrials in the Holy Bible is written from the point of view of a man or woman in biblical times, anything that came down from the sky would be considered a god, or at least sent by the gods. Now consider what the site of modern technology, such as a helicopter or rocket ship, would do to the mind of a 1st century man or woman. The explanation of this type of phenomenon would probably sound an awful lot like what we find in civilization's most sacred books. Reverend Michael S. Carter explores the possibilities that the Bible, Koran, and other religious texts contain clues to visitations from extraterrestrials in this expanded second edition of Alien Scriptures: Extraterrestrials in the Holy Bible. Rev. Michael J. Carter is originally from Baltimore, Maryland. He moved to New York City in 1980 and lived there for 25 years, working as a professional actor before moving to Asheville with his family. Michael is an ordained Interfaith minister and received his BA Degree in Letters from the College of New Rochelle where he graduated cum laude. He received his Masters In Divinity Degree from Union Theological Seminary in New York City (class of 2000).While serving various Unitarian Universalist Congregations in New York, Michael was trained as an anti-racism trainer and has been recognized by President Clinton for his efforts. Michael was also a weekly columnist for the Asheville Citizen Times. Rev. Carter now serves as the minister for Unitarian Universalist Congregation of The Swananoa Valley, in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. Rev. Carter has written articles on UFOs and Religion for such publications as UFO Magazine, Alien Encounters ( A British Publication),The MUFON UFO Journal, Contact Forum, The S.P.A.C.E.

Ancient Aliens in the Bible Book Review:

Did a distant race of ancient aliens once inhabit the lands of the Bible? Do the ancient writings of the Bible and other texts provide proof of their existence? Did the “prophets” have close encounters with ancient aliens? Were the “angels” physical beings sent to perform specific tasks by their alien masters? Ancient Aliens in the Bible answers these questions and more. Analyzing the historical and archaeological evidence, and using the work of former Vatican translator Mauro Biglino as his guide, Xaviant Haze provides ample proof that what our ancestors described in ancient biblical texts were real-life events and not visions. The UFO encounters in the Bible are described as concrete experiences by flesh-and-blood beings. The angels were assigned specific duties and struggled to carry them out; some even rebelled and took earthly wives, forbidden by their superiors. Ancient Aliens in the Bible reveals that: Lamech’s wife gave birth to the son of an angel with glowing eyes. Moses was led to the promised land by UFOs. Noah’s great-grandfather, Enoch, got a heavenly tour of space. Your view of the Bible will never be the same.

Bible Codes Revealed Book Review:

In the beginning, Earth was without form, and civilization was nonexistent. Thousands of years later, signs of earlier life on Earth were discovered, indicating that extremely intelligent life had once existed. Author Sherry Shriner alleges that a cover-up began in 1954, when a race of aliens that had been orbiting the Earth landed at Holloman Air Force Base. Afraid that their planet was dying, the aliens landed a second time at Edwards Air Force Base. Shriner explains that this monumental event had been planned in advance, and, on the appointed day, President Eisenhower was whisked away to the base, under the guise of a visit to a dentist. After President Eisenhower met with the aliens, a formal treaty between the Alien Nation and the United States of America was signed. Has the United States government really been collaborating with aliens for the past sixty years? In Bible Codes Revealed, Shriner challenges readers to consider the possibility of a future global alien and UFO invasion, and more importantly, what we can and should do once this event transpires. According to the author, it's not a matter of IF but WHEN! And soon. The information you will read in these pages is shocking, and points to an imminent danger on every level of a global society teetering on the brink of human and spiritual slavery. Sherry Shriner's information will shock you, but most importantly, will challenge you to get involved now in spreading the truth about this horrific reality: that aliens exist and control much of what happens on planet Earth, and unless humankind takes a stand now, the world humans rely on, the possibility of future generations even, most certainly would be lost forever due mainly to the greed and criminality of the world's most powerful ruling bodies desiring short term technological progress in exchange for selling out the human race!

Aliens in the Bible Book Review:

To get more information on this book and my other books, check out my website at www.AliensInTheBible.com. When reading the Bible, readers usually find moral guidance; sometimes they perceive a sense of poetic beauty. But how often do readers fall into the pages, and swim among the ancient Hebrew characters? How many people transcend the eons of time within the ancient text of the Bible, then look up from their reading, and consider for a moment that they are mysterious beings, immersed in a mysterious creation? How odd this current world must have looked, we with our televisions, space-shuttles, and computers, in the visions of the prophets of old; and how odd the world of antiquity looks to us today a world of giants, magicians, and sorcerers; a world of legendary gods coming from the heavens. Aliens in the Bible is a book of possibilities. No claim of supreme knowledge in biblical interpretation is made rather, scripture is presented, and with it, the pondering mind of the author. Some pondering may be perceived as utterly preposterous, despite the fact that science and historical literature other than the Bible may also support some suggested theories. Nevertheless, this book should be a healthy read; it should touch the unseen eyes of the soul, which delight in the revelations of the invisible realm. Aliens in the Bible is researched information that places paranormal subjects into three categories: supernatural entities, realms of existence, and phenomenon. Within the scope of paranormal phenomenon, unlike the title of this book may suggest, a host of topics are covered. Along with the existence of aliens ghosts, thought-forms, artificial intelligence, monsters, and mythical beings are also discussed all with a biblical interpretation. The realms of heaven and hell are explained in depth. Other paranormal phenomenon, such as reincarnation, PSI, astral projection, stigmata, and more, are also elaborated upon. Some of the theories presented in this book might make the average Christian laugh. Indeed, they could be embossed on the front page of a tabloid. Some of them are as follows: 1. The beast spoken of in the book of Revelation might actually be an artificial intelligent life form. 2. The giants of Genesis chapter 6 were genetically engineered hybrids of humans, and fallen angels. Dinosaurs and other monstrous prehistoric beasts were the results of precursory genetic experimentation leading up to the Nephilim giants. 3. Astral projection was practiced at the Tower of Babel. This ability aided in the growth of exponential knowledge. 4. Satan once ruled a host of planets; his home world was called Rahab. God destroyed this world; it became what is now known as the asteroid belt. 5. The heaven reported by many non-Christians that have had NDEs (Near-Death-Experiences) isnt really heaven at all. Its actually a vacated paradise located within the midst of Hades, ruled by demonic entities. 6. What people perceive as reincarnation is actually possession of the deceased. This book may be accused of not being focused on the primary message of the Bible. The heart of scripture is the heart of God; that He imbed Himself inside the body of a human being by the name of Jesus, and willingly allowed Himself to be murdered. Why did He do this? Because He demands perfect justice yet seeing that we can never pay this price, He paid it for us, if only we accept Him on His terms. Instead, this books focus is on items that may be deemed a value of secondary importance in comparison with the essentials of the Christian faith, such as the love of God, the immaculate conception of Christ, His work of salvation on the cross, moral absolutes, etc. To all Christian readers, I humbly request you humor this work, for this book should serve a valuable twofold purpose. First of all, it will witness to seekers who often imme

Ezekiel Project The UFO Bible Connection Book Review:

Many will argue that the Bible, if it is to be taken seriously, is all about how its read and interpretation. With that in mind, there are many who subscribe to the ancient astronaut theory in particular, who believe the Bible to be filled with accounts of UFO encounters and interactions between human beings and extraterrestrials. What Ezekiel saw is one of the most seized upon accounts. What if I told you that this was all simply an allegory about a form of ancient Hebrew yoga known as Merkabah Mysticism, its psychology and that the events never really, actually happened, except of course inside of YOU. Psychology it self has roots stretching all the way back to ancient India and Egypt. Learn the mysteries behind the fables that can be applied to every day life that are in synch with natural laws. Learn to resonate with the universe through these teachings.

Alien Worlds Book Review:

This intriguing collection of essays presents reflections upon the birth, proliferation, enduring appeal, and future of UFO mythology. Highly respected authors and researchers, representing the varied and sometimes competing perspectives of ufology and the sociology of religion, provide a fascinating and instructive voyage into the exotic social worlds of UFOs, abductees, and contactees. Reports of aliens and the changing nature of abduction experience, especially in the sexual dimension are explored in relation to literature, culture, and ideology. The influence of abduction therapy and support groups is considered, as are new religious movements (NRMs) within the UFO community. The book offers rich insights into psychology, human behavior, and religion, melding issues of race, politics, and gender. Finally, it evaluates the existing dynamic of UFOS in the age of the Information Super Highway and ever-increasing globalization. Alien Worlds will enlighten anyone wanting to understand what and how the academic world thinks about UFOs, UFO groups, and UFO phenomena.

Encountering ETI Book Review:

Encountering ETI weaves together scientific knowledge and spiritual faith in a cosmic context. It explores consequences of Contact between terrestrial intelligent life (TI) and extraterrestrial intelligent life (ETI). Humans will face cosmic displacement if there are other complex, technologically advanced intelligent beings in the universe; our economic structures and religious beliefs might need substantial revision. On Earth or in space, humans could encounter benevolent ETI (solicitous of our striving for maturity as a species) or malevolent ETI (seeking our land and goods to benefit themselves, claiming that their "superior civilization" gives them the right)--or meet both types of species. Earth Encounters of the Third Kind described by credible witnesses (including American Indian elders) suggest that both have arrived already: some shut down U.S. and U.S.S.R. ICBM missiles to promote peace; others mutilated cattle or abducted people, perhaps to acquire physiological data on biota for scientific study or for other, unknown purposes. Sci-fi movies such as Avatar and novels like The Martian Chronicles describe humans as malevolent ETI aliens: we do to others what we fear others will do to us. A shared and evolving spiritual materiality could enable humanity to overcome cosmic displacement, and guide TI and ETI in a common quest for meaning and wellbeing on cosmic common ground.

The Lure of the Edge Book Review:

UFO phenomena entered American consciousness at the beginning of the Cold War, when reports from astonished witnesses of encounters with unknown aerial objects captured the attention of the United States military and the imagination of the press and the public. But when UFOs appeared not to be hostile, and when some scientists pronounced the sightings to be of natural meteorological phenomena misidentified due to Cold War jitters, military interest declined sharply and, with it, further overt scientific interest. Yet sighting reports didn't stop and UFOs entered the public imagination as a cultural myth of the twentieth century. Brenda Denzler's comprehensive, clearly written, and compelling narrative provides the first sustained overview and valuation of the UFO/alien abduction movement as a social phenomenon positioned between scientific and religious perspectives. Demonstrating the unique place ufology occupies in the twentieth-century nexus between science and religion, Denzler surveys the sociological contours of its community, assesses its persistent attempt to achieve scientific legitimacy, and concludes with an examination of the movement's metaphysical or spiritual outlook. Her book is a substantial contribution to our understanding of American popular culture and the boundaries of American religion and to the debate about the nature of science and religion. Denzler presents a thorough and fascinating history of the UFO/abduction movement and traces the tensions between those who are deeply ambivalent about abduction narratives that seemingly erode their quest for scientific credibility, and the growing cultural power of those who claim to have been abducted. She locates the phenomenon within the context of American religious history and, using data gathered in surveys, sheds new light on the social profile of these UFO communities. The Lure of the Edge succeeds brilliantly in repositioning a cultural phenomenon considered by many to be bizarre and marginal into a central debate about the nature of science, technology, and the production of a modern myth.

Hindu Scriptures and American Transcendentalists Book Review:

In this extraordinarily candid book, Umesh Patri presents a fresh reappraisal of the impact of Indian scriptures on American transcendentalism which flourished in New England in the 19th century. The major premise of the study is that other influences on the transcendentalists, such as Chinese, Persian, Sufi, Arabic, Neo-Platonism and German transcendentalism, are of less significance than that of Indian scriptures comprising of Hindu and Buddhist texts. In the writings of Emerson, Thoreau and minor transcendentalists like Alcott, Fuller, Channing, Johnson, Brownson, etc., the influence of Indian scriptures is clearly discernable. An attempt has been made here to show that Indian scriptures have not only influenced the philosophical thinking of these writers but also their lifestyle and social conduct. It also attempts to show that transcendentalism was not an isolated movement but was a part of a cultural renaissance which swept the entire nation in the wake of avid interest and curiosity in the ancient lore of other countries. Transcendentalism, it is suggested here, continues to affect the thinking of Americans and can be viewed as a continuing movement of thought in American intellectual history. This book draws attention to many aspects of transcendentalism which have not been adequately discussed so far.

Conversations with Scripture 2 Isaiah Book Review:

The God of Second Isaiah, the “Holy One of Israel,” is increasingly foreign to modern Anglicans, who are often uncomfortable with the uncanny, fiery side of God. Unfortunately, this may leave Anglicans frustrated both with God’s “non-rational” ways and with morality-centered Christianity. The new research behind this book reveals Second Isaiah as priestly temple literature, expert at the Holy and its coming dawn on earth. Second Isaiah highlights priestly themes and quotes the temple texts to help readers approach that which is utterly mysterious. To study this material is to rediscover the overwhelming, absolute worth of God.
