Are alleged alien implants really extraterrestrial in nature?


Published: 26 January 2021 (GMT+10)

Jonathan M. asked a questions about alleged alien implants being scientifically studied.

Dr Roger Leir.

Hello, I’ve read Gary Bates's book on Aliens, but I have a question: what do you make of the many metal implants found in so-called abductee’s, removed by Dr. Roger Leir ?

I’d like to see another lab verify all this, but it seems that some implants were made [of] 36 elements, normal alloys having 5 different types of metals, Composition of Meteoric Iron 9, rare Earth Metals such U-236, a single isotope of Uranium existing by itself, as well as elements such as Iridium which is very rare and hard to find in the earth’s crust, emission of radio waves, and finally the existence of Carbon Nano TubesThey’ve been filmed, and studied by nanophysicist Chris Cooper and chemist Dr. Alex Mosier, the laboratory results from SEAL Laboratories (now EAG) seem legitimate. Also investigated by Steve Colbern, a material scientist who works with nanotechnology, in his documentary ‘Patient seventeen” Of course they could be military. As a Christian I am skeptical, but this has caused me some distress.

Any thoughts?

Thanks so much for your time.

Are alleged alien implants extraterrestrial in origin?

Thanks for your email. Before I start, just a reminder that our site requests that you do a search before submitting a comment. A simple search of ‘alien implants’ would have revealed the following article: Alien & skeptics. Although brief, it really does have all I need to say on the subject. I know the work of Roger Leir (March 20, 1935–March 14, 2014) quite well and have studied his claims. But if you have read my book (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the evolution connection) as you claim, you should understand by now the nature of many spectacular claims that people make with regard to the ET subject matter. In my book, do you recall how cerealogists; who claim to be people with scientific credentials that study crop circles, claimed that a collection of crop circles were of ‘genuine’ extraterrestrial origin when, in fact, they were made by two old guys with ropes and planks just a couple of days before? And the construction of these crop circles was all captured on film. It was a good demonstration of how people see what they want to see in their desire for something to be true.

It's a normal human tendency for us to believe these amazing claims because we wonder why people would make such spectacular claims if they are not true. So, are these people bad or just mad when they make such claims? It's not always that simple, because people are more complex than that.

Are people being dishonest? Yes, in some cases. Again in my book I detailed at great length the MJ-12 document deception at Roswell, or ‘contactee’ Billy Meier who was caught fabricating evidence and was outed on three separate occasions. But despite this, millions still believe a UFO crashed at Roswell, and Billy Meier’s cult still has thousands following him. Why? Well, like the hoaxers themselves, they probably really do believe in ET visitations, so the fabrication of alleged evidence is seemingly ok for them because the end will justify the means. That is, if it ultimately leads people to the truth about UFO visitations, then it is ok to deceive people. This is not unique to the UFO field. Deception has been known by evolutionist scientists and even alleged Christians claiming to have found Noah’s Ark, for example. In some cases, there is no underlying belief system at work that wants to lead others to the ‘truth’, but just outright fabrications from those seeking their ‘five minutes of fame’, for many varying reasons.

Real research?

An example of an alleged alien implant removed from a patient.

But what about alleged scientific studies like the one you cite? Do I think that demonic deception can implant exotic materials into people? Absolutely, as it all forms part of the deception, just in the same way that we see unidentifiable objects in the sky, or how they are seen on radar, or by military personnel, and even leave traces on the ground. Do you recall the section on scoop marks left on experiencers after their alleged abduction experiences? They serve no purpose except to leave a mark to show people have been interfered with (although not by aliens).

With regard to implants, it has always been claimed that these were put into people so that their ET benefactors could trace and track them. But even Leir’s removal of alleged implants has just shown these to be natural objects such as ceramic-type materials or metals, even if rare. So what? Just because a naturally forming substance or metal is found in someone, it does not mean that ‘aliens put it there’. There has been no definitive technology found at all that would allow victims to be tracked. Even a Wikipedia entry about Lier notes:

“At a MUFON conference in 1995, Leir examined X-rays from a woman who believed she was an abductee. He later extracted two small metallic foreign objects from her, and also from a second patient. The objects were analyzed by the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, which determined that they were ‘composed of commonly found elements’, such as iron or aluminum. In describing some of these elements, the lab report made reference to the composition of meteors. Leir interpreted this to mean that the objects removed from his patients were ‘of extraterrestrial origin’. He came to believe the objects were devices implanted by aliens and ‘scientific proof of non-terrestrial experimentation on man.’”1

Now, when someone claims they have found carbon nanotubes etc. it creates the impression of some sort of technology. But if you follow the reference below about ‘Naturally produced carbon nanotubes’,2 you will see that carbon nanotubes can also form naturally and are found in fluids or even rocks in the earth’s crust. But I suggest to you, this is simply where another interpretation of the alleged evidence occurs, and even a ‘spinning’ or twisting of what can be found. Perhaps they did find carbon nanotubes, but have just interpreted as an alien produced technology. And then before long this is cited as real evidence that objects are being implanted by aliens, and picked up by the media because sensationalism sells.

Interpretations of facts are claimed as evidence

As a visitor to our site, you should already understand that millions of scientists also interpret evidence to support their evolutionary beliefs, and creation scientists can also interpret the same evidence to support their biblical beliefs. The alleged ‘facts’ do not speak for themselves. They are always interpreted within one’s belief systems. See this excellent article called Faith and Facts. And alleged UFO experts do exactly the same thing to support their own religious ideas that highly evolved, advanced aliens have been visiting the earth for millennia. UFOlogy has been called The world’s fastest-growing ‘scientific’ religion?

Here’s another example known as the Atacama alien. UFOogist Steven Greer claimed to have conducted DNA tests which ‘proved’ that a little mummified body found in a Chilean desert was extraterrestrial in nature. Also note that Greer is a medical doctor like Leir, which gives the air of credibility. I.e. doctors only deal with facts… right?

Please take the time to read this article about Greer’s Sirius documentary. When I originally viewed the movie, the DNA researcher was interviewed giving the impression that he was canvassing the idea that the DNA was non-human. But he never outright made that claim in the footage. After years of dealing with this subject matter, I could see through the selective editing, and I made a bold claim of pronouncing that the alleged DNA evidence was being spun by Greer to support his beliefs. Then a couple of years later conclusive DNA research revealed that the supposed alien was a deformed human foetus with numerous genetic maladies.

You said in your email to me that “As a Christian I am skeptical, but this has caused me some distress.” This sounds like you are still being swayed too and fro by claims by agenda-redden, non-Christian sources. I remind you of the passage in Ephesians 4:14 which says that we are:

“no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.”

I confess that I am surprised to hear such a thing if you have read my book. It conclusively showed that deception is at work either by human means or by spiritual means. Just think of the lengths gone to and perpetrated by spiritual forces masquerading as aliens A fact now even recognized by most secular UFO researchers. I am also surprised that, as a Christian, you are reading the ET promoting sites and work of people like Dr Leir. Surely one can realize that everything they do is to support the idea that humans are being abducted by aliens. My advice is to simply stay away from it if it causes you doubts.

You can see the addition at the top of the Sirius documentary article. And I wrote:

“The lesson here in our digital age is to be skeptical of spectacular, soundbite claims. Sensationalist type news sells advertising space, and of course, that is the aim of all media outlets. As we have shown, the UFO realm is littered by false claims and half-truths, because like any other religion, its adherents want you to believe what they believe, and sadly, millions are being deceived. That’s why we made a feature-length movie on the UFO subject. See Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a Deception.

In short, one needs to be completely convinced that ETs do not exist to start with. We know that the Bible does not allow for it. Once you are reconciled with that fact, it automatically follows that their must be alternate explanations when people and, yes even scientists, claim to have found evidence to the contrary. If you leave that door open, then one will be swayed by seeming evidence to the contrary.

I sincerely wish you well in your walk with the Creator and encourage you to:

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:10).

It never ceases to amaze me how the Devil has deceived so many people with so many different lies. The Lord Jesus referred to him as a 'liar and the father of lies.'
Davina W.
Thank you, Gary Gates and CMI, for your excellent ministry. It is great to know the truth about aliens and UFOs. Thanks for exposing the lies and promoting the BIBLICAL TRUTH! I suspected that aliens are actually demon spirits all along.
Gary Bates
Thanks for your kinds words. It's actually a little more subtle than it all just being demons though. It would help to fine tune our apologetics especially if witnessing to others. May I recommend the book and the documentary on this webpage as it will provide much more comprehensive information. BTW it Bates, not Gates just FYI. :) Thanks again.

"Listen, my son, accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many.
I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.
When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.
Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.
Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men.
Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.
For they cannot sleep till they do evil; they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall." Proverbs 4:10-16

Looks like Peter's prophesy is being fulfilled in front of our eyes about being tossed to and fro and not wanting the truth. Barry Setterfield thought one way the antichrist will gather the armies for Armageddon is to lie we are being attacked by aliens when the Lord comes back. Though this isn't CMI's core mission we need to be wary. Only our Lord can defeat these deceivers, it is spiritual warfare in the trenches. As you say, Gary, these devils can easily implant stuff in people, but the Name ofJesus stops them in their tracks.

I mean even if those implants are legit, it doesn't follow they are of "extraterrestial" origin. Being entities from another dimension and being able to warp between theirs and ours; it's very likely these spirits can fabricate or even make themselves common elements found on Earth, put them inside us and then leave. This is no different than an annoying burglar injecting us with a virus while you are asleep, then you wake up and conclude The Mothman injected you with its virus. The demons could simply have grabbed Earth elements, craft a clever 'implant' and put it inside of the victims. These demons are probably laughing at these guys who spin it as some 'alien implantation from another planet' when really, these guys just grabbed a rock from this planet, did some fancy chemical-physics treatment and now the result was used as a sort of interdimensional prank.

Thank you for the informative article. It reminds me of the old saying "garbage in- garbage out." If we feed on false information and allow ourselves to be influenced by it, the result could be confusion and possibly falling away from the truth. Deception can come from so many different sources in this age. I was looking at a web page concerning Charles Darwin and was struck by how many pictures there were of members of the Royal Family of the UK on the site, as well as other celebrities. It was almost as if Darwinism was the state religion. We must always be on guard in discerning what is true and what is false.

As a teenager I read everything I could on UFO’s and aliens and believed they were visitors from outer space. As I grew older and did more reading, like Clifford Wilson’s books debunking Von Daniken’s way out theories on gods from outer space and other Christian books on the topic, I go along with the explanations outlined in [Gary Bates's] Alien Intrusion [book]. Still is a fascinating topic. Of course I’m a big science fiction fan so that explains some of that! But I try to keep the science and the fiction separated!
Everett C.
Such is the power of our enemy in the spiritual battle we're in, whether we recognize the battle or not.
Thomas R.
Thank you for the balanced approach to discerning intent in media rendering.

Your advice to stay away from anti-biblical content is truly key, and paramount.
Too many Christians have adopted the secular habit of searching for the “shock and awe”.

Some are better than others at discerning sensationalism, but it really is obvious most of the time that an idea being promoted is not actually grounded in truth or eyewitness account.
Secular science is a really good testing ground for this. And that is true both in the scientific literature, as well as popular media reports.
In other words, when people are grasping at straws, it’s obvious.

How grateful we all are for the work of the apologetics ministries, which I see as a special mercy in these latter times. However, I find it intriguing that the populace is now at sea with a whole raft of potential deceptions. This past year has shown the world being driven by many loaded narratives of one kind or another , so it's becoming increasingly hard to know what to believe, or who to believe. Whilst I understand the points you make Gary, I feel you are a little harsh in the way you have addressed the enquiry. In my experience, faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Many people have periods of doubts - this is normal. Sometimes it's just because they want to fair-minded to all-comers. Yes, this maybe includes the Devil, but we see how Jesus dealt with him in the wilderness: 'it is written, it is written, it is written again, begone!' The glorious thing is, that we eventually find that there's no match for the enlightening uplift of the Holy Spirit, who reveals to us the saving grace of the Bible through a DIVINE FAITH, so that we 'know that we know', not just by a slavish 'believism' in the Scriptures, which even the Lord himself has not required of us. All praise to his wonderful name!
Gary Bates
Thanks for the comment Norman. I completely agree that it is normal to doubt and thank you for the reminder. But I do see this situation a little differently due to this man's tendency to read the alien literature. It's similar to the myriad of emails we get from people who go to specifically anticreationist websites and then contact us because their faith is troubled by the seemingly unanswerable claims being posted there. There seems to be a naivety in thinking that these sites will be balanced and will only deal with truthful evidence. My challenge to him was to stay away from those type of sites altogether, and my article detailed how these alleged facts are 'spun' to form dishonest representations of the facts. FWIW it's worth, upon rereading it (which I would actually encourage you to do as well), because I don't think I was actually harsh at all. There were no harsh words written. It was merely a warning and advice that he must be completely sure of his beliefs on this issue if he is going to read such literature. By the nature of his question, he obviously was not. I trust you will be able to see the difference. Kind regards and thanks for your support of CMI.

Hello, God bless you! You know, with respect to aliens, the discovery channel released decades ago a movie based on a novel called "Darwin iv", evolutionary fanaticism? in which ships travel to a fictional planet and find life and other evolutionary fantasies. I would like you to take a look and review it, regards.
Gary Bates
Thanks for the heads up, but it is our policy not to review every video or document that is sent to us. This is because we would have time for little else including our own work and research which must take priority. Thank you for your understanding.
