We all got a good laugh when Trump retweeted a post by Dr. Immanuel about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in the prevention of the coronavirus.    

Dr. Immanuel is known for claiming that alien DNA is used in some medications, that some illnesses are the result of astral sex with demons while asleep, and that certain TV programs and children’s toys are intended to introduce children to witchcraft. 


All of her bizarre claims, except for one, are in common and rooted in the Christian religion.  


We shouldn’t decry Dr. Immanuel’s lunacy before admitting that  Christians readily believe in a magical, all supreme being living somewhere up there; in a human who was the son of a god and could walk on water; in a virgin birth; a paranormal life after death; in crackers and wine that can turn into blood and flesh; in resurrection of the dead; and yes, in angles demons.


How far is it from a woman who was impregnated by a holy spirit, to demon sperm causing illnesses?   Demons, after all, are a Christian concept.   The Catholic church, here in the twenty-first century, still has a body of priest trained to exorcise demons.


Witches and witchcraft are also deeply embedded in the ethos of the Christian church.

So, a Christian criticizing Dr. Immanuel is like Baptists criticizing Methodists, criticizing Catholics, criticizing Jehovah’s Witnesses, criticizing Presbyterians…   It’s all in the same circus tent.  


People who believe in aliens and UFO’s are often seen as nut cases because they believe that from hundreds of billions of galaxies, containing hundreds of billions of stars that are orbited by billions of billions of planets, some of those planets could produce life forms that are more advanced than humans. 


Aliens, that’s plausible.  Alien DNA; yeah, that is nutty.
