Science Fiction as Propaganda
Science fiction has long been one of my favorite genres. Science fiction has also long been the forerunner of commentary on social and political issues, good versus evil, religion, free love, and radical individualism. Two of its primary themes are “Where did we come from” and “Where are we headed”. My shelves were once loaded with over 300 sci-fi books by Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clark, Robert A. Heinlein, Katherine Kurtz, Terry Brooks, Piers Anthony, and dozens of others. And then there were the movies: Star Wars, Star Trek, A Space Odyssey, ET, Bourne, Pirates of the Caribbean, and so forth. But who ever thought that each of these might just be propaganda whose intent was to turn us away from Yahweh and Yeshua? Not once in my early years did I consider this possibility – but not any more.
Science fiction has long been a proponent of the draconian, one world government. Heinlein’s Space Cadet, Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, Huxley’s Brave New World, are just a few examples. The 1988 science fiction film They Live depicts the ruling class as aliens managing human social affairs through the use of subliminal messages during TV broadcasts. Hmmmm . . . .
And then there’s the Terminator and Mad Max films which both depict an Earth that has been taken over by despots and where the state machine exerts complete control over social life, no matter how chaotic that life may be.
In 1961 Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land hit the shelves of the reading public. Its main character, Valentine Michael Smith is raised in the culture of Martian natives, and possesses full control over his mind and body, which allows him to demonstrate psychic abilities and superhuman intelligence. He appears to be immune to most human diseases and afflictions and his goal is to re-organize human societies and cultures, leaving “Homo Superior”. After his death, Smith is still able to communicate with his followers and then reappears as an incarnated angel. Hmmmm . . . . .
Star Trek became one of my favorite shows in my youthful exploration of science fiction. Aliens, spaceships, lots of free love (Go Kirk!), and plenty of radical individualism. As the series continued and morphed into other outer space dimensions, these themes got even bigger and more seductive. Can we really become more than we currently are? Do alien races really exist and can we be like them? Hmmmm . . . . .
In 1968, 2001: A Space Odyssey hit the big screen. This movie was one of the first to employ the newly developed Dolby Surround Sound and the special effects were amazing. The book series continued with several other installments and its main themes involved alien entities coming to Earth to evolve us from the apes and finally to save humanity from nuclear war and humans being transformed into a non-corporeal, energy-based life-form just like the alien entities. Is this where humanity started and where it is now headed? Hmmmm . . . . .
The Star Wars series at first glance is nothing more than a swashbuckling and humorous space fantasy. But once again, we are faced with aliens and alien technology that is far superior to what Earth possesses, and, of course, the force. All of which is ultimately destined to make us godlike and improve our human condition. Hmmmm . . . . .
And then there’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET: The Extraterrestrial, and dozens more . . . . Are movies like Independence Day and Men In Black, all the UFO sightings, and similar revealings just a precursor to a full disclosure by our governments and the Vatican that “aliens” really do exist, and that they are coming to visit?
Humans that become more than human with special abilities are a staple of the sci-fi genre. Spiderman, the Fantastic Four, the Hulk; take your pick. Peter Parker (Spiderman) is given super strength and agility, the ability to cling to most surfaces, and the ability to quickly react to danger with his “spider-sense”, all due to being bitten by a spider, who’s genetic makeup is then incorporated into his own. The fantastic four get their superpowers after exposure to cosmic rays during a scientific mission to outer space. Dr. Bruce Banner (Hulk) gets his superhuman strength from a failed gamma radiation experiment for the U.S. military. Superman comes to us from a galaxy far, far, away, to borrow a phrase from Star Wars! Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) is a demigoddess and the natural-born daughter of Hippolyta and Zeus. Can we say “Pirates that bind the goddess Calypso”? Hmmmm . . . . .
And then there’s the Jason Bourne trilogy and the Bourne Legacy. Not only do Jason and his cohorts have super strength, agility, and super senses, but the legacy chapter tells us that these “enhancements” are due to genetic manipulation.
Science has determined that there is a finite limit to how small something can be. An item can only be divided a certain number of times before it ceases to exist. In other words, our entire universe is naught but a digital simulation, a theme portrayed by the sci-fi movies The Thirteenth Floor and the Matrix series. Hmmmm . . . . .
And then there’s Tron and Tron: Legacy – virtual worlds to the max . . . .
The 1995 film, Species, portrays scientists who created a half-human, half-alien individual with DNA codes obtained from beyond the stars. The 2009 movie Splice portrays two genetic engineers who successfully splice together DNA from different animals to create hybrid animals that are used in medical research. Does this sound vaguely familiar with the disclosures of mice growing human ears on their backs, or perhaps the disclosure that scientists have created more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories. Hmmmm . . . . .
Are Splice and Species just precursors to a full disclosure by our governments and research experts that hybrid chimeras really do exist, and that they will be coming to our neighborhoods in the near future? Are they already here?
Propaganda Versus Scripture
Revelation 13:17 – “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
Revelation 6:2 – “And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”
Genesis 6:12 – And Yahweh looked upon the earth, and, behold, all flesh had become genetically polluted.
Hebrews Chapters 8 and 9 – Earthly items are mere shadows of the Heavenly items.
Despotic governments galore – perhaps all of these sci-fi works are merely propaganda that describe what is really coming in the near future. Does any of this sound like Revelation 13? A despot is coming. Scripture calls him the antichrist, appolyon, the son of perdition, or the beast; amongst other titles and names. Hmmmm . . . . .
Will aliens come down to save us from ourselves – perhaps the burgeoning reports of UFOs are just more propaganda to misinform us that aliens exist and that they will appear at our most needed time. Does this sound like Revelation 6? The “aliens” are about to come down upon the earth. Scripture calls them the four horsemen. They won’t be coming to save us from ourselves. Hmmmm . . . . .
Will our genes be “upgraded” to give us superhuman powers – perhaps this is just more propaganda that alien gods will return to earth and re-make us in their own image. Does any of this remind you of Genesis 6 and the influx of fallen angels who’s offspring became the Titans of Greek mythology – the superheroes of Noah’s time? Or does this sound like Revelation 9:6, when life will be so horrible that many will seek death but be unable to find it – perhaps due to some genetic upgrade? Hmmmm . . . . .
Is this world nothing more than a digitally simulated program – perhaps just a cosmic joke upon humans by an alien race? Or perhaps, is this world a simulation running on Heaven’s computers? Scripture in numerous places alludes to the fact that what we see here on earth is merely a shadow of the real heavenly items. Hebrews 8 and 9 tell us that the Tabernacle and its furnishings were mere copies of those in Heaven. 2 Corinthians 4:18 tells us that the spiritual world is a much broader, much more substantial reality than our own. Romans 1:20-22 tells us that the invisible, real things can be perceived by the temporal things that can be seen. Hmmmm . . . . .
Are modern hybrids the precursors to the return of the Nephilim of Noah’s day? Are they already walking amongst us? Will they become the next ruling class? Hmmmm . . . . .
How many times will we be tempted to accept a route to super human bodies and immortality portrayed by science fiction writers promoting the alien propaganda but not understand that these ways are not Yahweh’s ways? People are being trained to accept an invasion by extra-terrestrials, which I believe are nothing more, nothing less, than the fallen angels of scripture. The great deception spoken of in Thessalonians and other scriptures is about to be unleashed. The world is about to be deceived into believing that Yahweh and Yeshua are immaterial, and that humans were created by the aliens that are coming back and who will bring about a new golden age and enlightenment of our minds. Genetic manipulation will be the tool used to change our DNA and make us immortal. Satan’s deception that we can become like God will be believed. And science fiction has been a leading force in propagating this agenda.
Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew prophets. The stage is being set. Each day is one day closer to our Lord’s return. Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon. Get busy reaching the lost.
