Ancient Aliens in the Bible

The Bible and Flying Saucers
Downing
1968

One of my secret guilty pleasures is occasionally watching the show Ancient Aliens. It’s probably because of that guy with weird hair. I am also a big fan of ghost stuff, Bigfoot, the Mystery Spot, and all other types of “unexplained”  phenomena. You will be happy to know that my family of engineers/scientists mock me constantly about this.

Anyway, this is one of those books that puts forth the idea that flying saucers have been around and were part of some of the major Biblical miracles: parting the Red Sea, the Resurrection, angels, etc. This is considered a seminal work in the UFO reading world. My particular copy was well used and checked out often. (This book came from a college library). You can read the entire book in pdf form here. This kind of material is popular and fun for a public library and worth collecting.

As a public librarian, I have had a few patrons over the years that have told me the stacks were haunted, or that they really were sure they saw a ghost in their house. (I also love this stuff for my reluctant young readers.)  In Michigan, we have had our fair share of Bigfoot sightings, haunted places and Detroit’s own demon Nain Rouge. Naturally, we should have a collection that reflects this interest. I also like telling Holly that I intend to haunt her after I’m dead.

Beam me up!
