I readily admit that the following is conjecture on my part. Yet I have given it serious consideration. It is more believable to ancient astronaut theorists than to creationists and evolutionists.
There are some things with which I have come in contact that have given cause to my thought and reasoning processes. Consider the journey of the three wise men. They were led by a light emitting from a star that hovered above them and directed them toward Bethlehem.
What if there were ancient astronauts that had taken interest in the events unfolding and were lending a hand to facilitate their completion? Almost without exception when human beings have reported encounters with UFOs they speak of a light flashing down from the craft. So is it possible that otherworldly beings provided compas for the wise men to follow? Also let's look at time and distance. How far did these wise men have to travel and how long did it take them to get there?
It is most probable that they came Iraq, Iran, or Arabia. So it is reasonable to assume that their journey could have taken several months. If this were true then they would have been informed of the pregnancy near its' beginning or at the latest in the fourth month.
I cannot comprehend them being informed after the fact,making the journey, going to Herod and still finding the baby in a manger.
So continuing with the concept that the magi were guided by extraterrestrials would it then follow that these same beings would, by means of their intelligence sources be able to warn both the Magi and Joseph and Mary to “Get the hell out of dodge”?
