Whitley Strieber & "The Visitors", 40 Years of Encounters

Updated: Jun 24, 2023

Whitley Strieber & "The Visitors"

What are we to make of Whitley Streiber's 40 years of paranormal experiences?

As Christians how do we fit this into our worldview?

Lets begin by saying the Bible does not deny or confirm there are aliens and/or life on other planets. The bible does describe several intelligent entities that exist along side us in anothe dimension for example angelic messagers, demons (disembodied spirits of the Nephilim) and The Son's of God. Is Satan a Son of God?, we don't know.

The possibility tht there are perhaps thousands of creatures and entities God chose not to tell us about is highly probable.

I am of the opinion that "The Phenomenon" includes benign and manevolent entities as well as animal like creatures.

I am also convinced that since the "Son's of God"were able to manipulate DNA to breed with human women in Genesis 6 they can manufacture clone like creatures that are souless and like drones. These I believ are perhaps some of what we see in UFO crashes etc.

This is an excellent video with Streiber giving us a lot of information. Take it in, be skeptical and be open minded.

Is Whitley Strieber Talking with Demons?

Whitley Streiber is not of the belief that his experiences are demonic or evil. Yet if you hear him describe his initial experience I wonder how he came to the conclusion these entites are benevolent.

Streiber's experiences are ongoing. So what does that mean?

below is an excellent video in which Streiber discusses that possibility with

Video from Whitley Strieber

"Charles Upton joins Whitley on Dreamland to discuss his latest book, Alien Disclosure Deception: the Metaphysics of Social Engineering. He is a Sufi Muslim, poet and long-term student of metaphysics, who is not afraid to dive deep into an exploration of the origin of the close encounter phenomena, which has left him with a theory which will resonate deeply with some listeners, and horrify others." from video introduction

Through a Fractured Glass, Darkly (Part One): The Facts in the Strange Case of Whitley Strieber

"What are we to make of the strange case of Whitley Strieber? Already well-known for his horror fiction (Wolfen, The Hunger, both made into Hollywood movies), Strieber underwent some extremely unusual personal experiences back in 1985 and wrote a book called Communion, after which his name became more or less synonymous with alien abduction. Yet Strieber is far more than just a man who claims that aliens did some highly strange things to him. Looking at his work so far, from Communion to The Communion Enigma: What Is To Come (which I have not yet read), a picture emerges of Strieber as the John the Baptist of the alien paradigm — the “chosen one” of a race of preterhuman, apparently ancient, unimaginably advanced beings. Crying in the wilderness of 21st century civilization, mocked and derided by orthodoxy (in this case science rather than religion), he is nonetheless regarded with awe and fascination by a large number of devoted followers, all eager to partake of his strange baptism. (Between his website and his radio show “Dreamland,” Strieber’s followers apparently number in the hundreds of thousands.)

While many have dismissed Strieber as a liar, out for a fast buck (Communion was a best-seller), others, more charitable, merely suggest that he is deluded or insane. In Communion, Strieber himself claims he was willing, even eager, to believe his experiences were the result of a brain tumor or some undiscovered form of mental aberration, but eventually he had to accept that what appeared to be happening really was happening. Even back in 1986, Strieber was not alone in his claims of alien abduction. Whether collective hallucination, hard cold fact, or something that is neither one nor the other, reports of the phenomena became widespread throughout the ’80s and ’90s (especially in the US), to the extent that a Harvard professor, John Mack, even wrote two books about it. Mack (who died in a hit and run accident in 2004) almost lost his chair at Harvard as a result of his research, however, and orthodox science continues to regard the subject as beneath contempt, unworthy even of the time it would take to contest it.

Strieber started out as a writer of horror novels, a somewhat dubious pedigree that made it considerably easier for his debunkers to dismiss him. Strieber, they said, was a spinner of yarns, pulling the oldest trick in the book and boosting his flagging sales by presenting his latest yarn as fact. Yet comparing Strieber’s horror fiction to Communion and its sequel, Transformation, one can’t help but be struck by the difference. Strieber’s horror novels are passable pulp, while his supposedly true accounts are powerfully disturbing; reading them, there can be little doubt Strieber is sincere in his belief that these events actually occurred. No less discerning an intelligence than the author William Burroughs — who was curious enough to pay a personal visit to Strieber in 1989 — spoke out in Strieber’s support. “I am convinced that he’s telling the truth,” Burroughs said after his visit, “no doubt about it.”[1]

To dismiss Strieber as insane doesn’t work, either, because there were plenty of other witnesses to testify to the strange goings-on around his New York cabin during the period in which he underwent his experiences. (Ed Conroy even wrote a whole book on his investigations, called The Communion Report.) So if Strieber is neither insane nor lying, if what he says happened actually happened, the question to ask is: how accurate are his accounts, and why, exactly, did these beings choose a well-known author of horror fiction to introduce their presence to humanity?


“Remember this: earth has given birth to something we call the human mind. But the visitors view it as a precious resource of innovation and, ultimately, of ecstasy. They are indifferent to power, but willing to use dark appearances to give lessons.” –Strieber, “Summer of Promise, Summer of Danger,” July 12th, 2003.

Rather than trying to sum up Strieber’s experiences, and his interpretation of them, I will let his words speak for themselves:

“The close encounters I had between 1985 and 1994 were scary, but only because they were so unusual. The people — or beings — I met were complex and, in the end, gentle. They had a wonderful, subtle sense of humor. There were many personalities involved, obviously many different individuals. My life with them was spiritually and intellectually rewarding. They responded with deep understanding to the path I was on, and worked with me as true masters work with a student on the journey toward higher consciousness.. . .[i] This was an extremely subtle, paradoxical and complicated experience. I encountered many different levels of being, some of them openly terrible, others more neutral, others sublime. I have no way of knowing if they were all the same or different creatures entirely. . . . The message of my contact experience is, therefore, clear: face the fear and you will get rewarded by breaking down natural barriers to perception that impede you from interacting completely with the world in which you live.[ii]

Having lived with the visitors for many years, Strieber describes the beings as emanating from

“a world that reaches across space and time, that penetrates not only this universe and its secrets, but many others as well, that is ancient beyond belief and, in a way that I can hardly even begin to explain, impeccable. I’m not saying that they’re pleasant. They’re as tough as nails, as mean as snakes and as dangerous as plutonium. . . . You cannot be with them without also being with your own truth. Then you see what you really are, a little fragment in a vastness so great, so various and so shockingly, unimaginably conscious that it completely swallows you.”.. from the article:
