There is something about him looking different from other people. I knid of think that in the vacuum of atheism or agnosticism, people have filled the angel void with aliens. Still looking to some superpowerful otherworldy force to help them explain reality or substitute for mysticism. If it were true it might explain a lot. By extension from this, maybe all the gods and godesses were aliens. This is not a new idea and sort of imaginative play to toy with the idea.
An Alien... I guess we need to define alien, lets skip defining alien and just say that this whole concept of sin, and animal sacrifice seems to lack support about aliens. Lets just say that jesus never pointed to God the father in an alien way. This alien visitor had some strange beliefs and passed them onto us.
Anything that comes out of the sky can be called an alien or extraterrestial but i believe that an alien no matter how you define it is definitely not what God is all about. He is what He says He is and is certainly more than an alien in philosophy, miracles and in claims of what He has done, how He handles us and our situations and a number of other ways, so I do not think that alienism counsels fully with what God and the bible have to say.
One does not have to be abducted by aliens to know that God is not, in the sense inferred by the topic, an alien. Is this like asking, how do i know what a president is like, was I a president or abducted by a president?
Alien sure, God is different than you or I, we are but an image of him. Heaven certainly isn't Earth so that makes me think of another planet where these other beings called Angels and the creator of all God would dwell. Saying alien isn't a bad thing. It's just a vernacular. But I think that a distinction must be made as Brother said. It would be revolting in my opinion to compare Christ with the grays. One who's message was to love one another vs the ones who abduct cows and people to anal probe them just seems more than wrong and horrible.
I am a Christian but find it is in bad taste to maliciously speak about other faiths and religions. I don't believe that Muhammad was the last prophet and I leave it at that. I don't run his name into the ground. I don't believe in reincarnation but I don't go around telling everyone how ridiculous the idea is. I say all that to say this, a distinction must be made. Because as Brother has already said that term "Alien" conjures up images in our minds of a certain idea that has flooded mainstream culture and could easily be seem as offensive and aggressive.

God attracts Everyone, that is the Definition of God ...The general consensus has 90 % people on Earth think or believe there is a God or Gods. You can't please everyone; even God can't! .To claim or define God would make one become more elusive and evasive of God, for Everything is everything as what is meant to be. Mythology blends into and is incorporated into religion and vice versa, certain religious ideas are often represented as Myths. a sense, Myths are stories that talk about the higher things and the more profound subject matters.
The important items to do with God, Cosmic Origins, Ultimate Conclusions, Purpose and Destiny. For God is everything and everything is God God, Cosmic Origins, Ultimate Conclusions, Purpose and Destiny.. Who really knows how God defines or who we are and what we are ...
I am still having trouble following. If I am God and you are God and the definition of God is that God attracts everyone I can tell you there is a flaw in that logic because there are a few people that I can think of right now that are completely not attracted to me in anyway.
all things are attracted by 3 parameters in the universe
pro, polar, con project, absorb, reflect positive, neutral, negate/negative proton, neutron, electron Every uber-subatomic works this way.
Negative objects are attracted by positive ones, even ifthey are later repellled/repulsed. A Dominant Neutral can also reflect an Equal electric/negative. This constant unification-to-expression is called motion -like breathing.
But, yeah, way people describe Creator/creation is where the trouble comes in, Cap`n.
People often confuse God with Aliens...I don't want to belabor the point as anyone should have already known that God is something much more profound than aliens, as profound as the origin of the Universe. Labeling Jesus as an alien might be too shallow.
I have often wondered if we were to make first contact with an advanced alien race, how would that change the view on religion and God. Religion seems to assume God made the earth and all the creatures on it with humans...
Have you, or anyone you know of, ever had a close encounter? When did it take place? Were there any drugs involved? Did you tell the authorities? What race of aliens were involved? Was the experience angelic or demonic...
If we discovered proof of life on other planets, would it affect your religious views? Would it affect your beliefs differently if the extraterrestrial life was bacteria vs an advanced civilization? Christians, would...
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along...
I will pose this to both sides, with the understanding that this is a *just for fun* topic with some serious implications. As such, take it in the spirit it's presented and please don't use this as a platform to forward...
