What powerful illustration can be given to reveal the demonic nature of the UFO phenomenon?


…bestselling novelist Whitley Strieber is a good example of the demonic reality that is so easily encountered through UFO experiences….

I became entirely given over to extreme dread. The fear was so powerful that it seemed to make my personality completely evaporate…”Whitely” ceased to exist. What was left was a body and a state of raw fear so great that it swept about me like a thick, suffocating curtain, turning paralysis into a condition that seemed close to death….I died, and a wild animal appeared in my place. (Strieber, Communion: A True Story (New York: Morrow, 1987), pp. 24, 274, 282)….

Strieber’s recollection of his encounters with the aliens is reminiscent of other demonic visits, including the smell of sulfur. For example, “I had an awful feeling. I felt their presence. It was palpable. Most upsetting, I could smell them.” (Ibid., p. 131, cf. p. 104) He describes one of the aliens as “what seemed almost to be a demon with a narrow face and dark, slanted eyes. It spoke to me in a high, squeaky voice.” (Ibid., p. 136)
