Close Encounters of the Sacred Kind (Oct. 1) -- A group of people has a mass sighting of a huge, airborne glowing object that follows them for many miles and even protects them from attack. Someone is seen being lifted into the sky on a beam of light. A man witnesses unexplained circular vehicles with living creatures on board. Pretty much sounds like your typical, modern-day UFO sightings, right? Wrong. These are vivid accounts of stories from the Old and New Testaments. UFOs and the Bible: Close Encounters of the Sacred Kind Hmmm...maybe I will pull that good ol Holy book from my shelf and dust it off and read again. I must have missed this in my early reading as a child!
