In his latest book Lying Wonders of the Red Planet: Exposing the Lie of Ancient Aliens, Doug Woodward has compiled a vast amount of information regarding cultural belief and theory about Mars and distilled it through a Christian worldview to argue that Ancient Alien theory and Mars are being used as a vehicle to prepare humanity to accept a future “godman” and his accompanying Lie – that humanity came from elsewhere, from Them, and that humanity also are godmen. This of course encompasses the lie uttered by the first liar in Genesis 3:5 that Eve would be like God if she ate of the forbidden fruit.
Woodward successfully demonstrates that many occult rabbit holes lead to the same idea that humanity’s “true” identity are as gods and immortality can be attained apart from the God of the Bible. He weaves various examples from history, science, mythology, pop culture, art, government involvement, and literature with the thread of Biblical truth to elucidate the point that humanity is being set up for The Lie, the great deception of 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12.
Some of the points that are touched on include:
-Helena Blavatsky’s 19th century esoteric The Secret Doctrine.
-Related literature such as that written by H.P. Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, pulp fiction magazines from the 1950’s, Ignatius Donnely’s Atlantis: The Antediluvian World, and its later offspring, the works of alternative history authors like Graham Hancock.
-Television phenomena like H2’s wildly successful and highly biased Ancient Aliens.
-The varying opinions of The Face and Cydonia region of Mars and NASA’s blatant deception regarding satellite imagery.
-Those who, in association with government agencies, claim to have visited Mars through remote viewing and the messages they share.
-Nikola Tesla’s claim to have communicated with off-planet intelligences.
-Camille Flammarion’s venture to marry questionable psychical studies with a generally scientific search for intelligent life on neighboring worlds.
-Walt Disney, Mission to Mars, and the location of Disneyland.
-The Christian worldview of the late author and researcher David Flynn and his theory regarding Mars’ history and its potential inhabitants (hint: not aliens but fallen angels) as described in his groundbreaking book Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars.
-The incredible claims of attorney Andrew Basiago, including that he and his father were heavily involved in a government program in childhood (Project Pegasus) that included teleportation to Mars.
-Carl Sagan’s rhetoric about intelligent life existing elsewhere.
-The idea of a “Cosmic War” in the heavens.
-The ritualistic occult exploits, i.e. “portal openings”, of science fiction author and cult religion founder L. Ron Hubbard and his rocket scientist friend and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA) founder Jack Parsons.
-Roswell NM, 1947.
-Hollywood and the “remaking” of mankind.
The above list, only a portion of all that is covered in Lying Wonders of the Red Planet, is demonstrative of the sheer depth of research and distillation Woodward has accomplished in what is an important work that sheds light on the so-called fringe, strange, and weird involving our nearest neighboring planet and how they apply to eschatological prophecy today. He is one of only a few Christian voices with the logic, research ability, platform, and might I add “the call” to elucidate a subject that is generally drowning in confusion and misdirection.
Not since David Flynn’s Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars (now a part of The David Flynn Collection) have I come across a work regarding Mars this revelatory and written from a Christian worldview. We here at WatcherVault are wholly recommending Lying Wonders of the Red Planet: Exposing the Lie of Ancient Aliens and appreciate the efforts and dedication of its author, Doug Woodward.
