It has been traditional in natural worship to give offerings to the pagan gods of a locality to keep them from bothering you. The following is the kind of thing that may happen if you don’t. It probably used to be much worse, before the devils were bound at the Resurrection of Christ. I suspect that you can also loose them by playing with them, and rejecting the application of the authority of Christ over them for you.
“Something was screaming outside of the cabin…the door was flexing as this thing was pounding on the outside of the door…in the morning…outside the cabin door, there’s tracks. Big tracks.”
1 Corinthians 10:20 — But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
// As sci-fi superstar Arthur C. Clarke put it, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” We’d regard representatives from a Type 5 civilization as angels and their leader as God… //
Or, to put it the other way, if we worship science as final authority, we would regard God and His angels as merely advanced technology, and that they have no moral demands that they can make on us. But, again, on what basis could we be free from those demands? Appeal to a higher principle? What principle? From where would it come? Only from our less-developed mind. Either way, we are morally subject to the highest beings.
That does not mean that there are no more-developed beings less than the highest that can trick us into accepting them as the highest. Even men can do that.
History is full of examples of men who claim to be God, and trick some into accepting them.
The Heaven’s Gate UFO suicide cult is another example. They listened to beings who told them that they had evolved into God, and that they could teach others how to do it.
“…their belief (was) that Applewhite was the Second Coming of Jesus Christ incarnate, and Nettles was the Heavenly Father.”
The Mormons also think that man can achieve the status of God by his own efforts, and does not need the righteousness of Christ imputed to him by God through the gift of faith alone.
When our intellectual leaders think like this, we are set up by God for a deception by devils pretending to be aliens from a benevolent civilization. MIchio Kaku says he attended a Presbyterian church as a child, but his parents were Buddhists. He has never quite figured out how the two positions can interact.
What he really says is that the mind of God is the music of strings vibrating in eleven dimensions of hyperspace. This is the god of Buddhism, which makes no moral demands and has no personal connection with man. Atheists have no problem with that god. Its existence is irrelevant.
The report on a science website explained that to come to this conclusion, he made use of what is called as the “primitive semi-radius tachyons,” which are theoretical particles that are capable of unsticking the matter of the universe from the vaccum space between particles. They then leave everything free from the influence of the universe that surrounds them.
While working on this theory, Kaku discovered what he says is the evidence that the universe was created by an intelligence rather than by random forces. To put it simply, he said that we live in a Matrix-style universe, as revealed in the Bible:
Isaiah 46:9 — Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Dr. Nick Bostrom at Harvard has also come to a similiar conclusion, although he attributes it to the work of a computer simulation built by some alien ET intelligence.
Atheists claim that this is not “proof,” but what they mean is that it is not proof based on the assumptions that they make, which exlude the possiblity of a guiding intelligence by definition. One has to have an objective basis for final proof, and that cannot exist in science. God has to reveal Himself, in the Bible.
Others say that this is the conclusion of others, resulting from their misinterpretation of what Michio Kaku says, and he does not make the conclusion.

“Alien invasion” is more subtle than physical ETs landing in spaceships, according to alieninvasion.org.
// The alien invasion are master manipulators in the mental environment. It is their most potent force against us. Even an otherwise intelligent and capable person could not hope to avoid being manipulated without the proper mental training. Greer would have posed a tempting target. They want our blind trust and acquiescence. Turning the face of the disclosure movement into an ardent pro-alien advocate fits their plan perfectly. It is a stroke of genius as far as mental manipulation is concerned. //
The site asserts the idea that there are real ET aliens, but they are much more subtle in their attacks on humanity than many think. The Bible calls these aliens “devils.”
1 Corinthians 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
Yet, I see that the “alien invasion” website falls for other, even more subtle devils, and does not rely on the word of God to overcome their influence on humanity.
// Over twenty years ago, a group of individuals from several different worlds gathered at a discreet location in our solar system near earth for the purpose of observing the alien intervention that is occurring in our world. From their hidden vantage point, they were able to determine the identity, organization and intentions of those visiting our world and monitor the visitors’ activities. This group of observers call themselves the “Allies of Humanity.” //
Numbers 11:3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the LORD burnt among them.
Deuteronomy 9:22 And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibroth-hattaavah, ye provoked the LORD to wrath.
// There’s only one place named Taberah in the Bible. It’s where Israel camped and decided to complain about all their adversities (Numbers 11:3, Deuteronomy 9:22). When YHWH heard these complaints, His anger was kindled and so was the camp. As the outskirts of the camp sizzled, Israel cried out to Moses and Moses beseeched the Lord to kill the fire. This happened, and the place was called Taberah, but the people kept complaining until Moses broke down and began to complain as well.
Then the Lord told Moses to gather seventy men and approach Him in the tabernacle, where He famously told Moses that He would send quail for the Israelites to eat, so much even that it would come out of their noses. And to top it off, He also sent a plague of untold characteristics, which impelled Israel to call that place Kibroth-hattaavah (Numbers 11:34). // — http://www.abarim-publications.com/Meaning/Taberah.html#.V1LGRFemu9p
Taberah seems to be something like a nuclear plasma, which induces radiation sickness. The Ancient Aliens nonsense asserts that this is because the Israelites were mistaking an alien ET spaceship for God, but I think the Bible is right and we just don’t understand much about how God reveals Himself.
// After the first round of signs and symptoms, a person with radiation sickness may have a brief period with no apparent illness, followed by the onset of new, more-serious symptoms. // —http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/radiation-sickness/basics/definition/con-20022901
Kibroth-hattaavah means “graves of gluttony,” according to biblehub.com.
