Returning to the news article concerning the star "mu Arae",
in my view, while you may not agree with me, and may even
think that I am being overly harsh, this story appears to be
an intentional attempt to deceive those who are not educated
enough to truly understand these things. As I pointed out in
part three, unless they read this article carefully, and read
it in full, they could very well be left with a completely
wrong impression. To make matters worse, as I mentioned only
moments ago, stories concerning this "discovery", as well as
all of the other two hundred plus extrasolar "planets" which
have been "discovered" to date, are spread all over the web.
The Internet is literally saturated with them. Just conduct
an Internet search for the term "extrasolar planets" or else
"extra-solar planets", and you will see exactly what I mean.

Why is this point so important? Quite simply, because there
is an unspoken law you might say, that mass saturation leads
to mass belief. Whether or not such a saying really exists,
I honestly don't know. Maybe I just invented it myself; but
regardless, what I have just said is indeed true. Isn't this
exactly what happened with the 1938 "War Of The Worlds" radio
drama? The story was like an uncontrolled brushfire, and the
mass media did its part to fan the flames of belief.

So the point is, if enough people are sufficiently bombarded
with a certain belief or idea, from enough different angles,
pretty soon, a lot of them will actually start believing it,
regardless of whether or not there is an ounce of truth to
it. I am no psychologist, but simple observation will reveal
that it is human nature for people to yield to peer pressure.
Most of us want to fit in. We don't want to be ostracized or
singled out. So, if a sufficient number of people around us
are saying or believing in something, we just might end up
doing it too. Today, this kind of "herd mentality" behavior
is referred to as "political correctness". Nobody wants to
step on anyone else's toes, so a spirit of liberalism has
begun to flourish in many areas of our lives, where it most
certainly did not exist even forty years ago. If you doubt
my word, just look at the progress that abortion rights and
gay and lesbian rights have made over the years.

So because news articles concerning mu Arae, and information
regarding other so-called "extrasolar planets" is spread all
over the web, people begin to erroneously accept it as being
the de facto truth; whereas, if they would take the time to
delve more deeply into this matter, they would discover that
in absence of verifiable visual proof, they are really being
taken for what may only amount to a "science fiction ride".
In the case of mu Arae, it isn't until one arrives almost at
the very end of the article, that he or she encounters the
following sentence, which, in my view, just knocks the wind
right out of the entire story:

----- Begin Quote -----

"There are no conventional pictures of the object, as it was
detected by noting its gravitational effect on the star."

----- End Quote -----

What?! They haven't really seen this "planet"; and they don't
even have any real images of it; and yet they're able to tell
us so much about it just by its gravitational effect on its
host star? As I have already said, this is the situation with
all of these alleged "extrasolar planets". None of them have
ever been visually observed by anyone. They are theorized to
exist, based merely upon this secondary evidence which these
astronomers have interpreted for us, after conducting their
"radial-velocity surveys", and other forms of detection. To
reiterate my point, I find this entire process suspect, and I
question what the real motivations are behind some of these
alleged "discoveries". Acquiring government grants for some
of their pet projects perhaps? The fact that these extrasolar
planets are all so far away, making it physically impossible
to photograph them, raises my suspicions even more.

What these astronomers are doing is just as bad, in my view,
as paleontologists who tell us exactly what certain dinosaurs
looked like, including the color and texture of their skin,
what their diet consisted of, how they walked, ran or swam,
etc., all based upon fossilized bone samples, some of which
are nothing more than a few fragments. In both cases, it is
evident that a lot of personal conjecture, imagination and
creativity comes into play here. That may offend some of my
readers, particularly scientists, but it is nevertheless the

At this point in our series, we are going to take a temporary
detour from our main discussion regarding extrasolar planets,
and further examine a few issues we talked about earlier. Let
me advise you right now, that some of this material is rather
wild, and that I am providing it for informational purposes
only. As with everything I write, you are free to accept it,
or else to reject it, based upon your own feelings concerning

In part three, we discussed various conspiracy theories which
revolve around certain alleged secret government projects such
as "Project Blue Beam". While I informed you that some people
are convinced that this technology, if it really exists, will
be used to create a false Second Coming of Jesus Christ, what
I did not tell you, is that there are also those individuals
who are convinced that this type of technology may be used to
create a false invasion from Outer Space. I discuss this same
topic in other articles as well, such as the aforementioned
series "Nature Of The Alien: ET's, Demons Or Gov't Plot?". I
again encourage you to read it.

At any rate, the motivation that these conspiracy theorists
offer, is that the coming world leader will need to unify and
militarize the planet; and what better way to accomplish this
than by creating a common enemy; that is, an extraterrestrial
enemy? As bizarre and crazy as this theory may appear, such a
plan does offer one plausible reason for the announcement of
all of these alleged "extrasolar planets", which have yet to
be visually verified. If you are going to create a fictitious
enemy from Outer Space, one of the first things you have to
do is to convince people that other planets exist. After all,
said alien invaders have to come from somewhere, right?

Now, please don't get the erroneous impression that I believe
that all scientists, (particularly astronomers), are involved
in a deep, dark conspiracy to take over the world, as I don't
believe that for a minute. I have no doubt that many of these
people are serious-minded, professional individuals who are
trying their best to unravel the mysteries of the Universe in
a sincere, honest manner which will enlighten the world. Yet,
at the same time, I realize that knowledge is power; and that
there are certain unscrupulous governments in the world which
will use their favorite propaganda organ, that is, the mass
media, to manipulate information, even against the wishes of
these scientists, in order to achieve their own selfish goals.

My confidence in the mass media isn't quite as strong. While
I recognize that some reporters embrace the highest standards
in their profession, and are dedicated to sharing the truth
with their readers and viewers, without partiality, we simply
can't ignore the fact that news agencies rely upon publishing
stories which will guarantee their survival in an extremely
competitive industry. As a result of this tough environment,
while adhering to high editorial standards would be the ideal
in a perfect world, we all know that we live in a dog-eat-dog
world, where only the strongest and most savvy survive; and
news agencies will sometimes, perhaps often, bend the truth,
if it results in greater viewership and earning more profits.

Government spokespeople are probably the worst. The spin that
they put on the facts is one of the sad truths of this era of
modern government. All of that to say that if someday we hear
of the discovery of a "super-Earth" extrasolar planet, which
possesses conditions very similar to our own, how much more
would an invasion story seem plausible to the gullible masses
who for the most part don't possess a great deal of Spiritual
Discernment? So is it possible that a slow, gradual process
of psychological manipulation has already begun which will at
some point in the future result in just such an announcement?
Before you outright dismiss this scenario as merely being the
rants of conspiracy theorists, allow me to share with you a
few quotes attributed to former US President, Ronald Reagan,
which I also discuss in the "Nature Of The Alien" series:

----- Begin Quotes -----

"I couldn't but - one point in our discussions with General
Secretary Gorbachev - when you stop to think that we're all
God's children, wherever we may live in the world, I couldn't
help but say to him, just think how easy his task and mine
might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was
a threat to this world from some other species from another
planet outside in the universe. We'd forget all the little
local differences that we have between our countries and we
would find out once and for all that we really are all human
beings on this earth together."

"Well, I don't suppose we can wait for some alien race to
come down and threaten us . . ."

-- U.S. President Ronald Reagan, to the students of Fallston
High School in Fallston, Maryland, on December 4, 1985.

"In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often
forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps
we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize
this common bond. I occasionally think, how quickly our
differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien
threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask is not an
alien force already among us? What could be more alien to the
universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat
of war?"

-- U.S. President Ronald Reagan, to the 42nd General Assembly
of the United Nations on September 21, 1987.

"But I've often wondered, what if all of us in the world
discovered that we were threatened by an outer - a power from
outer space, from another planet . . . Wouldn't we all of a
sudden find that we didn't have any differences between us at
all, we were all human beings, citizens of the world, and
wouldn't we come together to fight that particular threat?"

-- U.S. President Ronald Reagan, in a question-and-answer
session in Chicago, on May 5, 1988, after a speech concerning
human rights and the Soviet Union.

----- End Quotes -----

As I explain in the aforementioned series, I am not sure what
motivated Ronald Reagan to make those remarks, but I do offer
some possible reasons which you might find interesting. These
remarks by the former president are a matter of public record
and aren't just the invention of UFO fanatics. Whether or not
there is any truth to this bogus alien invasion scenario is
up to you to determine; however, there is something troubling
about all of this which you should consider. As I explain in
the "Nature Of The Alien" series, and in its companion series
"The Nibiru Planet X Wormwood Controversy", in a way, some of
these theories could possibly fit into Endtime prophecy.

As some of you reading this series will already know, we are
told in the Bible that, in a spiritual sense, we are soon to
enter a very dark, evil period in Earth's history. God's Word
goes into considerable detail concerning the demonic trio of
the Dragon, the Beast and the False Prophet. As I mentioned
briefly in part three, Paul discusses the "Man of Sin", or
the "Son of Perdition", who will sit in the soon-to-be-built
temple in East Jerusalem, and literally declare himself "God".
Being as I amply discuss these subjects elsewhere, there is
really no need to go into more detail here concerning these
individuals, other than to say that they will be empowered by
Satan himself, and that they will control our planet at some
future date. Currently, I am convinced that the Bible is not
just speaking figuratively concerning these individuals. I
believe that they will be real human beings.

Having established those points, allow me to explain another
thing to you. For we Christians, discussing Endtime events,
and more specifically, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, is
like second nature to us. We see nothing odd about it; but
have you ever stopped to consider how those people who don't
believe in God, and who reject His Word, the Bible, might be
led or manipulated to interpret such events? As I've pointed
out before, Satan knows the Word. As such, it only stands to
reason that he also knows the future; and more specifically,
his own future; as well as the future of those who follow
him. Thus, we are told in the Book of Revelation that he'll
come down to the Earth having great wrath, as we see here:

"Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them.
Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the
devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he
knoweth that he hath but a short time."
Revelation 12:12, KJV

Why is it that the Devil comes down to the Earth having great
wrath? Because he already knows that he has but a short time.
In other words, he knows that when Jesus Christ returns with
the Angelic Host at the Battle of Armageddon, his time is up!
As Paul tells us:

"And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall
consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with
the brightness of his coming:"
2 Thessalonians 2:8, KJV

That won't be the full end of Satan quite yet, because he'll
be temporarily imprisoned in the Bottomless Pit for a period
of one thousand years, but his main time of ruling the Earth
will be over, as we see here:

"And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of
the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid
hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and
Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the
bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him,
that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand
years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a
little season."
Revelation 20:1-3, KJV

But the main point that I wish for you to consider, is that
when this ungodly trio takes control of the Earth, one of
their tasks will be to somehow prepare the ungodly world to
fight against Jesus Christ and the Angelic Host, when Jesus
returns for the coming Battle of Armageddon.

Of course, nobody would believe them if they were to say "Oh,
and by the way; Jesus is coming back and we need to get rid
of Him." I really can't imagine any current world politician
making such an idiotic statement, can you? I think that he'd
be quietly escorted out of office, and placed safely in the
closest insane asylum. On the other hand, if this evil trio
were to try to convince the world that an invasion from Outer
Space was imminent, I suspect that many people would be more
inclined to believe them. Why is that? Because even now, even
though they may not be aware of it, the world's population is
being psychologically manipulated for exactly such an event.

Need I remind you of the popularity of movies where "space
aliens" attacking Planet Earth is the theme? Movies such as
"Independence Day" have been blockbusters. People laugh at
such movies, and naturally take them with a grain of salt;
but how many times have you patriotically cheered the hero
as he blows away the evil "alien"? Then there are the "cute"
alien movies like Steven Spielberg's very popular "E.T. The
Extraterrestrial"; as well as the serious alien movies like
"Close Encounters Of A Third Kind"; not to mention the more
spiritually-inclined alien movies such as the two "Cocoon"
movies; as well as the space horror flicks like the "Alien"
movies; and in between there are a zillion others which go
from being utterly ridiculous, to those which cause us to
pause and wonder.

There are also a number of cult favorites such as the "Star
Wars" trilogy and the movies which have followed it; as well
as the various "Star Trek" movies. Everyone knows that such
movies are nothing more than fictional accounts, but they do
leave a subtle psychological impression on us.

And of course, let us not forget the many television shows
which have filled the airwaves for many decades now. When I
was growing up, the original "Star Trek" series, as well as
"Lost In Space" and "The Invaders" were popular. Since that
time, there have been shows such as "Battlestar Galactica",
"Invasion", "Roswell", "First Wave" "Farscape", "Stargate",
and others.

Before television was invented, radio played a central role
in our daily entertainment, and Outer Space shows had their
place amongst them as well. We've already discussed the 1938
"The War Of The Worlds" radio drama, and "Buck Rogers" was a
staple form of entertainment for many children of that era as
well. For many decades now, books and magazines, as well as
school and university curriculums, have also played a central
role in shaping our perspective concerning the exploration of
space, and the possibility of encountering alien life, be it
microbial, intelligent or otherwise.

During the past almost sixty years, since the famous Roswell
incident of 1947, we've also witnessed the birth and growth
of the UFO subculture; which consists of a bizarre mixture
of fringe groups led by "wannabe prophets"; as well as some
New Age adherents of various persuasions; and some serious
UFO researchers as well. Some of them view "aliens" as our
so-called "Space Brothers", who promise to help us to usher
in an era of peace and spiritual enlightenment on the Earth;
while to others, these same "aliens" are viewed as merciless
monsters who conduct gruesome cattle mutilations, engage in
human abductions, impregnate human women with human-alien
hybrids, operate underground bases in conjunction with secret
government agencies, and more. I discuss all of these topics
in the aforementioned series.

So, depending on who you talk to, and believe, if anyone,
you'll be filled with either peace and hope, or else with
horror and fear. Given the current state of the world, and
all of the fear and paranoia which has been generated, as
well as sustained, since 9/11, I suspect that more people
would be inclined to react with fear and mistrust, if some
kind of an alien presence were suddenly announced by the
current powers-that-be, or by any future world government.

So you see, in a very subtle way, the people of Earth are in
fact being psyched up for what may very well be the reality
of the future; except that the unbelievers, because of their
rejection of God's Word, will be led to interpret the events
in a totally different way than us Christians. We will know
that Jesus Christ is returning for His own, while they will
believe that it is an invasion from Outer Space; which, in a
sense, it will be. How else can we explain the fact that the
Dragon, the Beast and the False Prophet will successfully be
able to marshall all of their Earthly forces at Armageddon,
as we see here:

"And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the
mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and
out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the
spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the
kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to
the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come
as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his
garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he
gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew
tongue Armageddon."
Revelation 16:13-16, KJV

It is a given that the militarization of the immediate space
around the Earth has already begun, and that it has been in
progress for a number of years now. I don't doubt that there
are technologies in existence right now, of which you and I
are not aware. Exactly what is the purpose of all of these
deadly weapons, such as satellite-based lasers? Are they to
protect us from a threat which will originate on the Earth,
or will they be used to protect us from a perceived threat
which will arrive from the depths of Outer Space? Might such
a threat even come from the very Throne of God? If it is the
latter, then it won't really be a threat to God's children;
it will only be a threat to those people who have foolishly
received the Mark of the Beast, and who will fight his war
for him against the Heavenly Host. That Host, or army, will
be led by none other than Jesus Christ Himself. Of course,
we already know the fate that awaits those who dare to fight
against the King of Kings and Lord of Lords; for as it is

"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he
that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in
righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a
flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had
a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was
clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is
called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven
followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white
and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that
with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them
with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the
fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his
vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND
LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and
he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly
in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together
unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh
of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty
men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them,
and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and
great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and
their armies, gathered together to make war against him that
sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was
taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles
before him, with which he deceived them that had received
the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image.
These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with
brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him
that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his
mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh."
Revelation 19:11-21, KJV

Having shared the previous points with you, perhaps you can
better understand the significance of the alleged "discovery"
of these extrasolar planets. Whether or not they really exist
is not important. The fact that a lot of people have been led
to believe that extrasolar planets exist is all that really
matters; because as I stated earlier, the mere belief in the
existence of such bodies provides a potential place of origin
for alien invaders. As I mentioned earlier, mass saturation
leads to mass belief.

To help you to understand this point more clearly, allow me
to remind you of a recent event in world history. Whether or
not WMD were ever really found in Iraq, the fact that many
American citizens believed the lies and the deception of the
Bush administration, was all that was necessary in order for
George Bush to gain the necessary support which was required
for him to wage his seemingly legitimate war against Saddam
Hussein. The fact is, that for the first time in the recent
history of the world, a nation initiated a pre-emptive, and
illegal, strike against another nation, without ever really
providing any solid proof of imminent danger; a danger which
has since been proven to be totally fabricated and baseless.

Besides the trumped up charges of "imminent danger", which
would, according to Bush, result in a "mushroom cloud" over
America, as I point out in my political series "Capture Of
Saddam Hussein And The New Babylon", Bush and his fellow war
hawks repeatedly relied upon the age-old tactic of fear and
paranoia, time and time again, with their alarming security
warnings, in order to purposely keep the American people in
a state of uncertainty. All of these tactics were purposely
employed, in order to maintain the fear, which was initially
generated by 9/11, pulsating through the public bloodstream.
So to reiterate my point, whether or not something is true
is really not that important to such people. As long as they
are able to convince the general public that it's real, that
is all that matters. Mass saturation leads to mass belief.

Sadly, as others have also candidly stated, including the
President of France, as well as Pakistani President Pervez
Musharraf, Bush's foolish and unprovoked meddling in Iraq
has indeed made the world a much more dangerous place. Not
only has Iraq become a literal hellhole from which America
will not escape for some years to come, but Iraq has also
now become a magnet, and a fertile recruiting ground, for
young Islamic radicals pouring in from all over the Middle
East. They have seen what has happened there, and they are
fearful that those crazy, warmongering Americans may attack
their nation next, as Bush goes about trying to fulfill his
"divine mission". Having gotten his way in Iraq, Mr. Bush
and his cronies are now using the very same psychological
tactics to demonize both North Korea and Iran; and Syria is
on their list of targets as well. It may only be a matter of
time before President Bush reveals his next move.

Perhaps one of the more alarming, as well as one of the more
dangerous developments, which has resulted from Bush's Iraq
folly, is the fact that since the illegal invasion occurred,
more nations have been showing a willingness to consider the
option of resorting to pre-emptive strikes against perceived
enemies. If you have been watching and reading the news, then
you may already know that the following countries, which have
all pointed to the disgraceful example of the USA and Great
Britain and their invasion of Iraq to justify their position,
have either already engaged in pre-emptive strikes, or else
they have made public remarks, stating that they are willing
to do so, if the need warrants it; or else they are at least
pondering this very dangerous option right now, in order to
determine if it should be integrated into their country's
national policy; and this list may not even be complete:

North Korea

Who will be next to join this group who say "If they can do
it, then so can we!"? It is indeed frightening to ponder the
possibility that a major war could erupt as a result of poor
intelligence, paranoia, greed, or even baseless, fabricated
charges; yet that is precisely where we now stand, thanks to
the U.S.A. and Great Britain. They have indeed set a very
dangerous precedent.

The tactic of pre-emptive strikes isn't really anything new.
If one carefully studies the Bible, it becomes apparent that
even Satan himself has resorted to this very same tactic a
number of times throughout Biblical history. For example, in
the Book of Genesis, Satan attempts to defeat God by inducing
Adam and Eve to eat of the forbidden fruit. But, as we learn
later, God foresaw this attack, and had already implemented a
strategic plan by which humanity could be restored to favor
with Him. Thus, in discussing the Resurrection of the Dead,
the Apostle Paul tells us that Jesus became the "Last Adam",
as we see here:

"So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in
corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in
dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it
is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a
spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a
spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was
made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening
spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but
that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the
Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that
are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that
are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy,
we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say,
brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of
God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I
shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all
be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the
last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall
be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this
corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must
put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put
on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on
immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is
written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
1 Corinthians 15:42-54, KJV
