The Fourth Kind

Someone in class today (forgot who) brought up a paper topic of aliens and monsters replacing religion (roughly). I've watched this movie, The Fourth Kind, and it documents, kinda, a woman in Alaska's experience with aliens and she questions Gods existence. How could God let these aliens abduct her child? How could God allow these aliens to do whatever it is that aliens do to innocent people? These are some of the common questions asked by people who believe in aliens. It raises controversial topics, whether the movie is fake or real. Even if you're not writing your paper on aliens its an interesting movie to watch.


  1. On a side note, imagine if the human race ever meets intelligent life from another planet.. if we think we're already extremely cross pressured about our beliefs, think about if we met extraterrestrials with their own set of beliefs! I'm sure there would be a lot of fragilization (for both parties) in the wake of not only finding out that we as humans are not the only intelligent beings in the universe, but that other intelligent beings in other galaxies have completely foreign beliefs than us!

  2. Charlissa's point is interesting although I believe this could be referring to people who don't believe in aliens. There are people who experience struggle and question god daily. I have learned personally not to question things happen for a reason whether for your personal life or for others you may not realize it until its passes. To Christian's pose I your view is interesting as well if we did come in contact with other intelligent beings it would be worst than we see racism in some cases our country likes to ostracize people who are different from certain norms.
