The recent occurrences of unidentified anomalous phenomenon (aka unidentified flying objects) over United States airspace has caused some renewed interest in extraterrestrials (ETs). Curiosity about the possibility of life beyond our planet is nothing new, and films and television shows have never shied away from the conversation. Ancient Aliens (History, 2009-) fuels the flames of speculation. The series, which is in its nineteenth season, continues to captivate viewers, so much so that it has spawned live events starring its ancient astronaut theorists. The series features episodes that ask viewers to consider questions about the Bible, humanity, and the potential of ET presence within the biblical narrative. For example, did Satan and other fallen angels set out to do good for humanity by revealing divine knowledge? What really happened to Moses on Mount Sinai? Was the Ark of the Covenant a toolkit full of ET power? As of today, humans have not discovered rational life anywhere else in the universe. There are good reasons to believe that we have not been visited by ETs. But with each claim of UFO belief by celebrities and politicians, speculation that we are not alone in the universe increases. In fact, according to Pew, more than fifty percent of Protestants and sixty-seven percent of Catholics believe in intelligent life on other planets. What would the discovery of intelligent ETs mean for the Christian faith?
