The Fourth Kind - A Pack of Lies

Remember the alien abduction flick from last fall (2009) that was supposed to be based upon real events that took place in Nome, Alaska in 2000 (with names changed of course)? While Creation Ministries International exposed it for what it was when it hit the theatres, this is even worse:

Evidence that "Dr. Abigail Tyler" is indeed a fictional person played by actress Charlotte Milliard.

As was suggested in the CMI movie review above, all the supposed "live footage" of hypnotic abductees and confirming evidence of alien abductions, etc. was nothing more than completely fabricated Hollywood sensationalism. Imagine that. If Hollywood doesn't understand why thinking people don't take them more seriously, maybe they ought to seriously consider telling the truth for a change. They could start by learing to model their efforts after books like these and movies like these; but the truth usually doesn't sell as well as a pack of hyped up sensationalistic lies.

  2. ...Sorry typo's in the previous comment.

    I saw this movie recently, and likewise thought it was bogus from the start. I don't know much about hypnosis, but it seemed to take about 3 seconds to hypnotize someone in the film. I thought the "real" police video footage was likewise hard to fathom- how the police footage managed to get into a film in which they wouldn't cooperate with. Then, doing a few internet searches and coming up with no actual evidence for any of the "real" characters was also very telling of fraud.

    That being said, I was impressed though that the movie presented these alleged aliens as unfriendly savages, rather than the saviors of mankind. I like that they questioned the honesty of these beings- especially when the alien voice claimed, "I am God."

    Even though I lean towards a cessation view in regard to "otherworldly happenings" in this world, I was pleased the movie linked altered states of consciousness with the aliens, and did so presenting such an experience as extremely dangerous.

    After the movie, I located a 30 year old cassette from the late Dr. Walter Martin on UFO's. While I don't believe in UFO's, if indeed they do exist, I'd be inclined to agree with Martin that these aren't aliens, but demons.

  3. The good news is that, a pack of hyped up sensationalistic lies. isn't selling too well these days anyway. Unlike 'The Blair Witch Project' the interest in "The Fourth Kind" was anything but 'viral'.

  4. Hi James,

    I'm with Walter Martin. However, most of these things are hoaxes. I'd encourage you to read Alien Intrusion by Gary Bates. It is a well-researched read that covers all the bases and agrees with Dr. Martin.
