Could God be an Extraterrestrial Being?

Some comparatively new belief systems and books portray God as an extraterrestrial, holding that intelligent beings from another world have been visiting Earth for many thousands of years, and have influenced the development of our religions. Some of these books suggest that prophets or messiahs have visited earth from other areas of the galaxy in order to teach morality and encourage the development of civilization. David B. Trout suggests that the life form responsible for producing life on earth had to be light years ahead in terms of their development since interstellar travel demanded a technology that we are just beginning to understand. Additionally, it must be noted that David Treybig, has documented that the 1947 Roswell Incident was first reported as a “flying saucer,” only to be changed the following day in what appears to be a government cover-up.

However, I believe that information regarding alien life is found in the Bible and records expeditions to our planet. In Matthew 16:15-17 Simon Peter responds to Jesus’ question regarding His identity by saying “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” and Jesus responds “…flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.” It is obvious that this understanding did not come through science but is a revealed knowledge that plays the missing component in man’s desire to understand his place in the universe. The difference between the earth’s religions and the Bible is the source of their information since all groups have fallible human leaders, while the Bible contains the very words of God Himself as revealed to us in II Timothy 3:16 which states, “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God.”

So while many on earth are afraid of extraterrestrial life believing it to be the evil beings seen in science fiction movies the Bible reveals that there is extraterrestrial intelligent life, in the form of a Spirit Being who “inhabits eternity” (Isaiah 57:15). The Bible further records in Genesis 3:9-10; 4:9; 16:9 the existence of many millions of angelic beings and in Hebrews 1:13-14 the existence of “ministering spirits.”

Eric Stetson postulates that the biblical God, while still the great ruler of Earth, is not a deity at all but instead represents an ultra-advanced extraterrestrial species that is intimately involved in the affairs of Earth. This idea may seem strange and radical at first, but suppose your best and most trustworthy friend revealed to you that he had once had an encounter with aliens that went something like this:

“I took a long hike in the countryside and when it started getting dark I was still a long way from the campsite so I decided to lie down and rest. I leaned my backpack against some stones for a pillow and soon fell asleep only to be roused in the middle of the night by incredible vision. I looked up and saw a beam of light stretched down from a hovering object to the ground, and strange-looking beings were going up and down what appeared to be a ladder and the leader of the aliens was standing at the top of it proclaiming that they wanted to ‘spread my seed far and wide.” Would you believe his story, laugh it off, reassure him that it was only a dream, or would you perhaps pull out a Bible and turn to the 28th chapter of Genesis, where the patriarch Jacob’s nearly identical experience is described?

Although most people don’t realize it the Bible and other ancient religious texts actually contain a multitude of stories that can easily be rendered today as UFO sightings and encounters. Thus, it can be concluded that the Bible does indeed deal with the subject of extraterrestrials, for the super humans described therein come from the heavens (space) and have virtually unlimited power over the affairs of Earth and due to their high level of development could appear to humanity as a race of gods. This would have been especially true in the case of our ancient ancestors who had no knowledge of other planets or solar systems and would tend to interpret visits from the sky in a much less sophisticated way, idealizing relatively higher beings as absolute rulers of the Universe

The gods of old are part of the physical Cosmos and when Yahweh commanded the Israelites to “have no other gods before me,” one must see that He was speaking like a king who was demanding allegiance from his angelic legions and his human slaves. The power struggle with Lucifer was much like a political campaign, each side producing propaganda to win over the simpletons who tilled the fields of Sumeria. In any case, the important idea is that the early Hebrews believed in “Elohim,” a plural term that is literally translated as “the gods.” The single being God known as Yahweh by the people of Israel was physically imperfect but because of their relative superiority in all respects – biological, intellectual, spiritual, technological – they were deified by virtually every ancient culture including the one that produced our Bible.

Another reason to believe this explanation is that in Genesis 1:26 the Bible says, “let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” and according to Dr. Zecharia Sitchin, Genesis Revisited, the plurality of God in this quote is no coincidence. This translation was compiled from much earlier and considerably more detailed texts first written down in Sumer.” The Sumerian gods were called Anunnaki, translated as “those who came down from the heavens.” They were said to have interbred with primitive humans to produce the intelligent variety that built civilization. This information is revealed in Genesis 6:1-2, 4 that reads: “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth… That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. What this shocking biblical passage indicates is the belief that gods are physical beings so genetically similar to Homo sapiens as to make interbreeding possible. Their Elohim were just like the Sumerian deities before them and the Greek ones afterward: powerful beings that looked and acted much like humans and were intimately involved with them.

How then, we might ask, did the super humans make contact with people on Earth? Although many traditional Religions would reject this idea, the Bible speaks repeatedly of encounters with what today would be called UFOs. One just has to read the scriptures with an open mind to discover numerous examples of aerial craft described as shining clouds, balls of fire, wheels, and flaming chariots which bear a striking resemblance to extraterrestrial objects seen today. Here are a few general quotes that help to make this point:

  • “Behold, he [Yahweh] shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind…” (Jeremiah 4:13.)
  • “Behold, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud…” (Isaiah 19:1.)
  • “And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night…” (Isaiah 4:5.)

Keep in mind that the people who wrote these things did not have large vocabularies and they had never even heard of aircraft, disks, and warp-drives so their explanations used to describe unidentified flying objects are made within their frame of reference. Another example of this is found in Exodus 13:18, 21 where it describes the Hebrews wanderings in the desert:.”.. the children of Israel went up and harnessed out of the land of Egypt. And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light.” Since literal clouds don’t have fiery pillars, one can reasonably conclude that the object was something very different – perhaps a UFO with a descending beam of light. My last quote for this article will be from Ezekiel 1:4 where the prophet Ezekiel, a frequent recipient of extraterrestrial visitations, described a strange object in the sky: “And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it…” (Ezekiel 1:4.) This could very well be a modern-day account of a UFO sighting: a swirling wind accompanied by a huge disk-shaped object surrounded by an intense glow. Ezekiel goes on to describe the strange craft descending from the sky, noting its resemblance to a spinning wheel and mentioning that it is piloted by a powerful-looking being.

If these concepts are correct, and they are just ideas I am putting out there, many based on readings from others then it would make sense that God is a powerful ruler but instead of being a non-person, he is like us only from another planet that is much more advanced than earth. That in no way takes away his importance to humankind or denies His control of the universe it merely explains how he interfaces with us mere mortals.

So, before you decide to lynch me look at the possibilities and the logic behind them and see if you agree. Then think of many of today’s churches that interact as a business insisting that you give of your time and resources, thus increasing their coffers so that the ministers can live in extravagant houses and have tidy back accounts while the parishioners go without. Now I know that many of you will not agree but having been in business with them I know for a fact that several ministers from the small area where we used to live that their bank accounts were over one million dollars. This did not include the fact that they didn’t have to pay for housing, utilities, insurance or vacations as the congregation seemed more than willing to pick up the tab.

Therefore, one must wonder if the theologians out there will do anything to keep their congregations from looking at new ideas since doing so could cost them the lifestyle they are enjoying. If that is not the case, the possibility of God being a Superhuman from another planet should be openly explored.

    I haven’t been back here since the day after the new format [which I don't like, should anyone care], but just took a look at the RSS feed. I was sure it was your post. Now let me say some things, and ask some questions, but know beforehand that I in no way wish to offend you.

    Some of what you speak of is right out of a book by Erik von Daniken, called ‘Chariots of the Gods?’. I read it, and several others, which all followed some of the same format, when I was a teenager. You see I was, and am, curious, but also know I was brought up in a Pentecostal church. While I have those beliefs, I am still open to reading about this sort of thing, because it is good to be aware of all that is around oneself.

    I have never heard of Eric Stetson, but he seems totally in line with von Daniken, and I’ll bet that is where some of this comes from.

    I also have a wife who was brought up in the Mormon church, and while they wish for the outside world to see them as ‘just as normal as the other Chistian chruches’ they are not. They believe that God is just a man who transcended into godhood by works in time. They believe that he lives on some planet called Kolob, and that all good Mormons will one day be ‘God’ also. Now this may be, but I don’t happen to think so. It also seems to have been ‘revealed’ to the Mormon prophet around the same time that von Daniken became popular, so you probably can see why my skepticism.

    I know that there are things in the Bible that don’t make sense, and it seems that if we try to make them make sense, we lessen God.

    Now about the coffers of the churches, and the ministers…I agree totally. This is one of the many things the Mormon church gets right, and if I could believe what they do as to doctrine, I would be one. They also get the idea of preaching the gospel, and loving one’s neighbor. As I said, I wish I could go along with the doctrine, because as for what goes on here on Earth, the Mormons are great. So sign me up for that second wife!

    So, if I might ask, how were you raised? Do you still consider that to be your faith?

    I am also aware of those who would say that we, as a society today, would seem godlike in what we can accomplish. Then if you look back in the Bible, can anyone truly say we could accomplish what is spoken of there?

    Dear Marc

    I am not at all offended. FIrst let me answer your question. My parents turned to Catholicism when I was 7 and sent me to parochial school. My folks died when I was 9 and I was raised in foster care from that point onward and experienced a lot of other faiths from Espiscopalian, to Baptist, and finally to the Assembly of Gods.

    I have several family members who are Mormon. I agree that some of their doctrine is totally off the wall but their concept of love their brother is good and they seem to be good people as a general rule.

    I currently have a hard time with any church due to encounters I have had with them and the harsh judgements and dishonesty I have personally witnessed by the ministers involved.

    I do, however, believe totally in THe Bible and the Cross and would never chance blaspheming the Holy Spirit.

    I have of late been studying other cultures and religions to determine why they believe what they do. Some of them appear to be based on the rantings of lunatics even though the followers seem to really believe.

    Overall, the concept of God coming from another planet was one that was introduced to me by a Bible scholar almost 30 years ago. At the time I dismissed it as bogus but since then I have been willing to open my mind to other possibilities. That being said this is the most plausible explanation that seems to fit in with scripture that I have found.

    I hope this answers your questions as to where I am coming from.

    Have a wonderful day and as always I was glad to hear your opinion. Jackie

  • marc klink

    Since I wrote the above, I have gone to the website that Eric Stetson has. It is truly amazing. Very informative. I had previously known very little about Baha’i. I knew that Seals and Croft, the duo that sang ‘Summer Breeze’ and ‘Diamond Girl’ in the ’70s were Baha’i. I have never met one, or seen a gathering place for them. I also did not know that they were essentially an offshoot of Islam. Strange how they would suffer some of the same problems.

    As I was saying before, I had ‘Chariots of the Gods?’ and several other books from my teen years. Unfortunately a flood took many of my books a couple of years ago, and I can’t remember what the other books were. The books of von Daniken are available on Amazon I believe, should you wish to take a look.

    Just read your article, and while it is an interesting read, I feel it may do more harm to people than good. Your viewpoints on ministers is very contrary to my personal experience (being a pastor’s son, and planning on becoming one some day) I can tell you that no minister I have ever known, who was truly a man of faith, had money like you describe. They pay for their own houses, and their own vehicles, vacations and insurance out of the average (at best) salary they receive from their church. I know for a fact that the pastor at the church I attend maintains a modest salary of under $40k CAD. Most of which always finds it’s way into other people’s hands when they need it most.

    In summary you should probably be more careful before making broad generalizations in order to support your opinion, as you will rebuff more readers than you’ll gain. You may also wish to take a look at some grass-roots or non-denominational churches to see what real Christians are like. Maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for.

    God bless.

    Great stuff. I hope that this way of thinking will hopefully become more prevalent so we all can move on from our semi-middle age we are living in. Time for rational and sober thinking to take over. I used to think these things were absurd as they were ridiculed as such but there are now enough books out there with history and rational reasoning behind them to discern the actual history of earth and our real reality rather than just our perceived one.

    I’ve had 4 beers preparing for bed–only reason I’m writing is to read it tomorrow to see what I say?

    Motivated more by that tv child star that was on tv last night on Nightline with “proof without resorting to faith” that God exists. You see==creation exists therefore a creator exists. I love the notion that most creators of things are actually groups of entities–not single entities but a single alien(s) is just as good. And why not the devil himself–? God could be on 10 to the googleplex planets walking around conversing with those good aliens 24/7 (each and everyone of them!) and to spite Gawd, the devil made Earth as a corrupt characature with Gods absence. Woot!!!!!!!Q!!!!!!!!!!! ((That “Q” was a typo–or was it a devine intervention from the Q continuum?))

    Dear Cysec

    Thank you for visiting my site. I am sorry that my thoughts bothered you. However, I assure you that what I presented is not just random thinking. I have personally known ten preachers from CA that had exactly what I stated in their accounts and didn’t help the poor.

    These pastors were not the Jimmie Bakers they were regular guys with congregations of 300 or less. I left the church perse after one of them refused to help a family with children who had found themselves on the street through no fault of their own. I had seen enough as this had just been the topping on the cake.

    I still believe in the basic Bible principles just not in main stream churches and their preachers. I believe in helping others as the need arises rather than contributing to a church where the edifice is more important than the people who attend. I believe in forgiveness rather than gossip and having the preacher served and cut up for dinner after Sunday’s sermon.
    I believe in honesty instead of using the term Christian to get people to believe you and then stiff them on a bill.

    I do realize that one can’t look at all Christians as hypocrites and warmongers but Bush is a perfect example in my eyes of someone who uses Jesus to get ahead rather than following his example. I do have friends and family that are different than the many I have seen and have hearts that seek to do right and that I love and respect but for the most part I am sorry but I will continue to seek the truth and to live by the principle of “Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you.”

    Have a good day. Jackie

    Dear Leaglebob

    Thank you for visiting my site. I agree that maybe you had a little more than normal. My intent was to share some possibilities that I feel could be available. I really don’t think that Lucifer had anytning to do with creation. Ultimately, be it through the means of other plantary visits, the big bang, or evolution through creation I fully believe that God (A super human or intelligent lifesource) created earth and man.

    While evil now seems to rule on earth I do not think that was the intent when earth was created since there are still many good people on earth. I hope that under normal circumstances you would agree.

    Have a wonderful day. Jackie

  • Weezy Deezy

    You forgot to mention the Raelians. They believe in something very similar to what you have just explained.

  • http://digg.com c0y0t3

    I was raised an evangelical, but I have come to agree with these conclusions independently. I do not agree that the beings (some in particular) are at all benign or helpful – the individual known to the Hebrews and worshipped as Jehovah, the one who led them through the desert for 40 years in a pillar of a cloud, etc., was remarkably cruel, evil, demanding, sadistic, and psychotic intelligence. He burned people alive for not following protocol, sometimes innocents just for an example, and these are HIS people, not even mentioning what he had in store for for the enemies, nothing short of mass genecide. I feel this was not the creator of the universe, though he/it may have had a hand in manipulating human evolution, but was in fact a highly evolved, technologically and perhaps genetically powerful being who also happened to be a sociopath of perhaps galactic proportions. Maybe even very long lived, so the prophecies of the “second coming” may indeed have merit, and the innate fear of religious peoples may indeed have a practical basis in reality.

  • Tai

    You only cite 1 religion spanning 2,000 years, which has a relatively small following on a world-wide scale. Seems a little narrow to be drawing such grand conclusions from. The Vedas would be a much more accurate account from which to write this article, as it dwarfs this religion in both followers and time in existence.

    Your idea of God as the alien being is very refreshing. Your idea won’t offend me but you may have already offended millions of Christians out there.

  • David

    Thanks for writing this article. Reading it gave me something to do for a couple of minutes. I could believe the possibility of extra-terrestrial life and even in the possibility (although unlikely probability) that such interaction transpired on earth. However, I don’t see how you get interstellar travel from “shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind”. Even in ancient days they understood concepts like boats. I could see if the bible said something like “and the supreme being came to the world on a boat that travel beyond the reaches of mankind”… but your metaphores are so loose they are not credible as any sort of reference to anything other than the actual wind and clouds. Finally, the scary thing is, if you were right, and god is an alien, we’re going to have to put up with a lot of crap from the scientologists.

  • http://www.finiteminds.com/ Steve Tchorzewski

    By not going to church because of the sins of the minister you are only punishing yourself, and possibly the people who need help and are not receiving it from the preachers. I have friends that no longer attend church for many of the same reasons that are mentioned above. I try to explain to them that anything man is involved with will be imperfect: the government, the police, and the church for example. And even though it is frustrating to see the minister say one thing and do another, or have the church hound you for donations, or see police brutality, or experience governmental corruption, the fact of the matter is: that if the good people keep turning away there will be nothing good left of these institutions.

    Hi Jackie–thanks for the response. Woke up real slow, still had the toothache I need to be fixed, and was happy to see I posted what I thought I had.

    I forgot to add what others have posted but is worth repeating–as anti-god/religion as I am, I still think it is “unfair” to burden that idea with the false prophets abusing the faithfull==which you can find everywhere on every subject. God should be free of such associations, other than he lets it happen?

    I also don’t think those bible passage support the notion of extra-terrestrials at all. Why would metal spaceships be described as clouds? If the bible said God came in a shining boat in the sky, then you would have a text based argument instead of the total projection you use.

    Lets do a thought experiment==>imagine the universe created naturalistically from the big bang/evolution thereof. Wouldn’t this existential universe look exactly like it does now? In other words, why would god create a universe that does not look like he exists? Of course, Kurt Cameron would see god working in everything that occurs. Words have their limits. /// Bobbo.

  • Bill @ Racine

    I find this article rather humerous.

    It tickles me to no end that people who find it so hard to believe in a God that exists and has always existed and yet does not exist as we do, can so quickly believe in “little green men” and think that He who created the heavens and the earth is one of them.

    I’d say that this falls under the heading of either Mormonism or Scientology.

    I guess G.K. Chesterton was correct when he said “He who does not believe in God will believe in anything.”

    I believe God is an Astronaut(not the musical group). I’m just afraid that they created us as an alternative to reincarnation on their planet. This may be a real life Matrix movie, with billions of people hypnotized into thinking they will go to heaven. Why would God lie and pretend to be the creator of the infinite universe? Maybe he is some after life Genghis Khan or like in old egypt Pharoh was considered a living God by his own people. Or is he just a Planet of Dr. Moreau character, just as hard on his creations, but loving those that accept his half breed son Jesus?

    There is a book which is quoted in the epistle of Jude, callled the book of Enoch. It was considered by the church fathers such as Uraneaus to be canon though it does not appear in the old testament because later on it was considered to be heresy. However, the book of Enoch is similar to the book Ezekiel which does appear in the old Testament and their descriptions of the spirit and the vision of how they were elevated to heaven are very similar. Enoch though also had several encounters with God but he was taken away in the end and never came back.” Enoch walked with God and was no more” Please read a book called the spaceships of Ezekiel which gives you a rocket scientists perspective on the descriptions in the book of Ezekiel.

    Thank you for the info. I will definitely check out the The Spaceships of Ezekiel. I am interested in this theory because it makes sense to me. I also knew about Jacob’s ladder and the story of Ezekiel which both sounded like extraterrestrial encounters. Have a good day. Jackie

  • Dee

    Dear Jackie. Thanks for your response. Another interesting point is that in Genesis, there is mention of how giants who had been the result of cross breeding between the Angels and human females (the daughters of men) caused much destruction and havoc and that as a result of these, God sent the great flood to get rid of them. In the book of Enoch, he actually names the leaders of the angels who had defied God and the fact that these rebellious angels taught men heavenly secrets that God did not want man to know. In particular one of them called Azazel taught man how to make weapons from metal. Swords, shields and also taught human females how to make cosmetics to beautify themselves. Subjects such as astrology were also taught to man. From Enoch’s accounts it is clear that Azazel was the one that appears to have faced the bulk of God’s wrath and Raphael was dispatched to mete out punishment to him. Certainly it appears that there was a rebellion in “heaven” against God and according to Enoch, Shamzaya the leader of these angels who are named as the Grigori had asked them if he was going to face the wrath of defiance alone or if the others would join him and they had all indicated to him that they would go along with him. The main issue it appears was that these Angels had lusted after the human female form and took them for wives against God’s wish. Now as I said before, the book of Enoch does not appear in the old testament because some church fathers did not like it but then if it was heresy, why is it consistent with Genesis and the epistle of Jude which are canon? But more to the point, who was God? Enoch was taken away. Who took him? I prefer for people to answer these questions for themselves.

    hey,
    I like your article, it reflects my thoughts totally, I had an encounter aswell, during the day though, I was with my parents so they have witnessed the same thing, and since that time I try to figure out what is going on, and I think that religion is a hoax, but as you have stated, I see a strong connection between the bible and extraterrestrial encounters. People who deny this correlation simply close their eyes before the truth…the governments and the vatikan know about it, but they have been trying real hard to cover everything up so that they can continue to give us wrong info, so that we continue to believe everything they tell us…
    I have witnessed it myself, and i have read the bible twice, once with the eyes of a “religious’ person, and another time, seeing it as a testemony of what was going on 2000 years ago…people who wrote the bible were simple, and they used simple words to descibe what was actually going on….
    what about noah’s arch? a big boat taking all the animals and species on board before a storm? think again…. a space craft taking the earth’s species on board, maybe for conservation purposes, maybe for reproduction, only ‘god’ knows…
    i do not like ignorant people, wake up and open your eyes… don’t believe everything u hear, question things, research on your own!!!!

  • Martie

    Let me start off by saying that we are all being deceived with all the new age interpretations of the Bible. I’m not saying that there is no such thing as extraterrestrials, it’s not an impossible concept and far be it from me to put any limitations on God almighty. But let’s not get confused about who God is…The God of the Bible created the earth and the heavens (plural). He is a God in the Spirit and a God who dwelt among men in the flesh, and today continues to dwell within you. He is a God who reigns in the eternal kingdom of Heaven. He is a God who will be there when we ‘die’ and He is a God of reason, compassion and mercy. He is a God who knows all your thoughts and all your deeds. He is a God of Judgement who condemns all the evil and wickedness of this world. He is a God who is all about free will, salvation and eternal life.

    Etraterrestrials do not fit this description nor do they deliver the same message about God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit or salvation, and these new age concepts take only what they want from the Bible and twist the scriptures to fit their own ideas. Notice they don’t do this with any other religious text, you got to ask yourself… why? Keep in mind that throughout the whole Bible, the message is about a battle between good and evil and which master you choose to serve and about having faith in Jesus Christ and his salvation. It was never about technology, forbidden knowledge or attaining ‘god-like’ powers through ascension which seems to be the golden carrot these days.

    Doesn’t this whole scenario remind you of the lie the serpent told Eve in the Garden? ‘For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.’ The serpent was the most subtle beast of the field, he was tricky then and he’s tricky now and his intentions haven’t changed and neither has the lie. Eve has been blamed long enough, this time you can only blame yourselves if you turn your backs on God!

  • Chris

    Jackie I really liked your article it was good to see someone else had thought of this before.

    And Martie to you saying that this is just him twisting the scripture to saying whatever he wants. Isn’t that the reason we have different demoninations in the church these days anyways? Also if everyone thought like you in the way that any new idea is the devil trying to trick then the world would still operate as the old Catholic church did, any new idea would be certain death.

    The passage Genesis 6:1-2,4 resembles a very well known alien abduction case, the Villas Boas case, in which a particular farmer by the name of Villas Boas had been abducted by beings appearing in a cylinder shaped craft which supposedly took him to a mothership, while a probably female extraterrestrial being had sex with him. Villas Boas says that after the affair, the being rubbed her belly and pointed to the sky, supposedly stating that she would raise their hybrid child in space. But, I say that one must not only seek identical passages from the Bible, but must also try to interpret stories and folklore represented in the holy books of several other religions.

    “Light Years” is a measurement of distance, not time.

    I aguee 100% with the theory you have just explained. I beleive that humans should be more open minded about this kind of subjects because this could be one of the first steps on discovering something great. I loved every single sentence and hopefully more people stop being blind and start to see the truth.
    I really apreciate what you are trying to do

    I agree that this is very possible and it is even the theme of a video game (Assassin’s Creed) however if we are going to say that God is an extraterrestrial being or beings then Christianity is no longer the correct religion. If indeed ancient civilisations have been interpreting visitations from other beings since the beginning of mankind, the bible is barely 2000 years old. There are other religions that have similar passages/sightings of flying vessels (such as in Hindu scriptures) that are much older.
    Also I know some people are going to bash science but it’s proven the Earth is approximately 4 billion years old yet the bible tells us it’s more like 10,000.

    As for that quote, ‘People who don’t believe in God will believe anything’, people who have blind flaith can’t see anything.

    The one thing I notice seems to be lacking in all of this theorizing is that perhaps “God” is not only extraterrestrial, but inter-dimensional as well. Perhaps he is not from another planet, but another dimension altogether. Perhaps he created this universe we live in as a hobby or project and monitors its progress closely, sometimes “reaching” down and adjusting or even outright manipulating things to make them better. Perhaps we’ve only been around a few weeks or months or even years in his lifetime. Perhaps the Bible is how he communicates with his creatures. Perhaps he isn’t just curious but principled and has some marvelous plan to create a being he can relate to when all is complete…

    Have you ever noticed that each time in early drawings that when they draw a picture of an angel or Jesus, there is a halo from one side of their neck to the other side? This is a space helmet because how else would someone from that time draw a clear bubble that you can see through over the head. I also believe that the Government is keeping this a big secret and have been doing this for a very long time. They know exactly where these beings are from and what they are doing here.
