               The Bible and Flying


              The 50th Anniversary


                  Continued from Page 11

          This is the question theologian Ted Peters asks
          in his book UFOs: God’s Chariots? (1977)  I do
          not know the full answer to this question, but I
          would point out that “supernatural” is not a
          biblical word, and has only been used in
          theology for about 500 years.  Modern
          missionaries fly to many locations on earth, and
          the technology that flies them does not nullify
          the spiritual work they do.
                 What Von Daniken misses, and what the
          History Channel “Ancient Aliens” series tends
          to miss is, if the Exodus was an alien guided
          event, its main purpose seems to be religious.
                                                         First of all, I am amazed that these verses are in the ability to focus heat with something like

                                                         These verses are evidence to me that we have cause the hubs to lock up on the axles.   Thus
          and if so, where is heaven, on another planet, or
