Ah, another example of creationist thinking.
Stories of abductions by space aliens owe more to demonology than ufology, says Gary Bates, the author of Alien Intrusion [and a representative of Creation Ministries International, the group that recently split off from Answers in Genesis] ....He believes the malevolent beings said to be responsible for the abductions are in fact demons ...
In the past they might have been recognised as fairies, pixies, leprechauns, or the like, he said, but in modern times and an age widely influenced by science, they are cast in technological terms. ...
Mr Bates said it is significant that no Christians had been abducted. All they needed to do was call upon the name of Christ to be released from the thrall of the abductors.
"But there are two types of Christians the walk-the-walk Christians and the talk-the-talk Christians."
He said those Christians who claimed to have been abducted by aliens usually fell into the latter group.
With logic like that on his side, it's not hard to understand why he thinks evolution is false.
