In 2019, two million people on Facebook said they were going to raid Area 51, a military base in Nevada, with the hopes of proving theories that extraterrestrials (ETs) and their spaceships were being stored there. In the end, only about 150 people showed up, and the “Storm Area 51” raid was a failure. But perhaps the most exciting recent occurrence regarding ETs and unidentified flying objects (UFOs) happened in early 2021 when the U.S. government released video footage of UFOs that they could not, of course, identify. This created a firestorm in the media, but especially among ufologists, people who believe UFOs have extraterrestrial origins. With shows like Ancient Aliens (A&E, 2009–) giving what appears to be evidence of alien life not only on other planets but inside our planet, Christians are grappling with questions about our place in the universe. One of the most popular promoters of ETs, space travel, and government conspiracies is self-identified whistleblower, Corey Goode. He has a wide following on social media and is the primary subject and informant for a book, Insiders Reveal: Secret Space Programs and Extraterrestrial Alliances (Exopolitics Institute, 2015). His claims read like the latest sci-fi novel: a world where benevolent ETs are trying to save humanity from the malevolent ETs. This isn’t science fiction, though — at least not to Goode and others like him who believe in a Secret Space Program that has spanned for decades and believe that ETs live among us. Intertwined with his beliefs about ETs, as often happens with this subject, are New Age beliefs like karma, reincarnation, and humans as gods.
