A former top UK government official has claimed that NASA is “quietly funding” biblical research and theological conferences over fears that UFOs could be “demonic.”
The claims were made by the former head of Great Britain’s Ministry of Defense (MOD) Nick Pope.
According to Pope, NASA allegedly wants “to get ahead of the game” when it comes to any potential confluence between UFOs and “demonic” forces.
Speaker during an interview with GB News, Pope claimed that government officials around the world are “they’re hedging their bets” over the concerns.
“I don’t believe in demons myself but a lot of people do and certainly the Bible talks about these things in terms of unclean spirits,” Pope stated.
There is a large amount of strange UFO and alien information related to Biblical research.
This is largely due to a sudden resurgence in interest surrounding the Book of Enoch, a post-Old Testament, pre-New Testament writing.
It claims that God sent angels to Earth, breeding a separate race of violent giants.
“There is probably a faction still in both the US and the UK that thinks that some aspects of the UFO phenomenon are demonic,” Pope also noted.
“One of their reasons for believing that is a passage in the book of Ephesians in the Bible that talks about Satan as being the Prince of the Power of the Air.
“I think that it is undeniable that many of the world’s great religions have in recent years started to think seriously and do some theological debate about what the consequences would be of discovering extraterrestrial life.”
Pope further claimed the Catholic Church has “no doctrinal objection” to the presence of alien life in the universe as “man may place no creative limits upon God.”
“NASA has quietly put in a bit of funding to theological conferences that have talked about this,” Pope claimed.
“I think it’s more a case that they’re hedging their bets and they’re thinking if it’s true, they want to get ahead of the game this time and not get caught up in the sort of science versus religion dogfight that we saw in the Middle Ages, for example, with Copernicus and Galileo.”

NASA has not responded to Pope’s claims.
However, similar claims have previously been shut down by corporate media “fact checkers.”
A 2021 “fact check” report by The Associated Press claimed that NASA has not hired any theologians.
