When Talking to Aliens Is Your Religion | Op-Docs



In the mid-1950s, an English taxi driver named George King claimed that he had received a directive from outer space. The dispatch spurred him to establish the Aetherius Society, a religious group that believes communicating and working with aliens will better humanity. Though unconventional, the group’s practices aren’t dangerous or hateful; they often mirror those of more established religions, with an extraterrestrial twist.

In Annalise Pasztor’s “Gods From Space,” members of the Aetherius Society explain their mission of peace and their unique prayer method in times of crisis. We don’t know how many people this group comprises overall, but with 35 centers across five continents, it’s a small international community bonded by the belief that the earth needs extraterrestrial support to survive.

  1. Yes they are worshiping but worshiping the devîl the father of all lies and his fallen angels

    Jesus is the only way,but they are so blinded they don't even know the gospel I was involved in the occult and I also had been deceived but through the power of the holy spirit I was delivered and saw the deception of today

    Jesus is the way the truth and the life!
    Not the jesus they are worshiping or aliens(fallen angels)

  2. Some say the aliens are demons. God is the only way to salvation. Don't follow cults because you think they're cool, or because you think you're being open minded. Be weary of why NY times is posting this.
