God IS an Alien.

But Is He An Astronaut?.

Yes, we cannot deny that God is an Alien. The dictionary discribes an alien as "not of this nation", or "not of this planet".

If God created this planet, then he cannot be from it.

However, the question that many are now asking, is, is God an astronaut?. This is a different matter.

Some speculate that God was really a visitor from another planet. He was a humanoid who came to Earth and perhaps, taught us new technologies. Perhaps he played a part in the developement of our species or even tampered with our evolution.

This is not really a theory liked by the deeply religious. This could be that it may mean that God is not really listening to our every thought or watching our every deed. Even though he could be watching the planet from afar, he couldn't actually respond to all our actions. It would also mean that he would not be there to judge us, as we depart our mortal lives. SEE .

The more traditional view of God, is an ever present life force that continuously watches over each and everyone of us at all times. This view includes God creating the universe. Well, this would mean that he was from another universe or even another dimension. He would probably of been created spontaneously from pure energy, without any form. He would probably have the ability, to be anywhere, in any of the universes and dimensions, at any or all the time.

Ponder this. "God made man in his own image". If this means that God made us to look like he does, then surely, God is the first of the two descriptions. A member of an advanced race of humanoids from a distant planet. However, if, "God made man in his own image", means that he made us to his own specifications, not leaving us to natural evolution, then, God could be the second of the two. What need would he have for canine teeth and a digestive system.

Personally, I don't think it matters. I believe that the act of having faith is more important than the need to verify the validity of that faith. It is faith, that consoles us during times of mourning. It is faith that sustains us when times are bad. It is faith that gives us our strength and it is faith that makes us whole.

God gave us curiousity and I believe he purposely left his identity vague. I believe that he did this for two reasons. Firstly, in order that we would question our faith and in so doing, make it stronger. Secondly, that we would strive to find his true identity and in so doing, stimulate our minds, so that we can evolve into the beings that we are destined to be.

For those who say, "I know who God is", "I know what God means" or "I know what God expects of us". You should say, "you believe you know.........", because it would be very arrogant of us to pressume to know, what God is thinking.

God gave us many things. As well as curiousity, he gave us a sense of humour, love, compassion and the world's greatest mystery.

      The book of Genesis says "let us create Man in our image and after our likeness," therefore I am somewhat confused as to why you chose the image of a Grey and why you prescribe to the notion that they are a "him" rather than a "they."

      Furthermore, according to Greco Pantheism, the creator of Mankind was Prometheus and not Zeus (king of the deities), and if you follow the correlations between Greco-Pantheism and Jeudo-Christianity Lucifer is most similar among all of the angels to Prometheus. And Gnostic texts portray the creator of Man as the demiurge of the most high one, because the demiurge and various angels or other deities wanted to use Mankind as a vessel to commune with a higher intelligence from the pleroma (a higher state of creation).

      This can all be found in the Book of Genesis and the Gnostic Bible, therefore I am somewhat confused as to why you chose to alter the words of Genesis 1:26 to words that the one you call god never used. Also, if you look at the earlier interpretations of the bible, which are closer and more valid to the literal translation of the early canons you will find that Jeudo-Christianity is not so much of a religion that acknowledges that there is only one god, so much so as it is a religion that acknowledges the existence of one deity among many others as there are many deities named throughout the canons such as Mammon and Ba'al, as well as many angels, fallen angels and demons. Lastly, do not be tempted to convey a fallen angel as a demon as ancient Solomanic texts state otherwise in their descriptions and depictions of demons and angels as King Solomon often practiced what can be described as magic inorder to communicate with angels and govern over demons.

      My view is that God is The Light from which all came from, the planets the stars everything. I believe this Light became self aware and used its thoughts to create an entire creation - when people say God created man in his own image I dont believe that it was meant to be taken the way it was - I think to me it means that The Light gave man this form and he gave other forms of life both on this world and off there own form of images. One coud say that God created man in his own image and God created canines in there own image. Is God an alien I think The Light is alien or certainity its beyond what religions describe and because I beieve that all came from the Light I believe it is ever present, The Light is everything, everywhere and everyone regardless of who or what they are or where they maybe.

      Wonderfully written with a lot of indepth expertise on the subject!! Hindu mythology accepts the truth about God just the way you do and it is the most logical conclusion that we can come to!!

      God doesn't believe in aliens...all material creatures are his children...not all aliens are from elsewhere. Some who we consider visitors live right here.

      interesting hub! I agree, faith in itself is more important than the nitty gritty details....

      Hinduism offers three approaches to God. God separate from us, God as the in-dweller and God who is indeed all. Perhaps, for the first category, God as an alien will be an interesting approach!

      Al Blondin. Fact is often more weird than fiction. Thanks for stopping by.

      I like your idea of God being an Alien. I personally prefer the term "extra-terrestrial" because alien simply means strange and otherly and for many this conjures all kinds of weird images. Extra-terrestrial on the other hand simply means that one is not of the Earth. If one's idea of God is that of Creator, it is abundantly clear that the Creator cannot be part of creation. Thus Extra-terrestrial fits the bill. As a Christian though, the idea gets complicated by the story of a Creator becoming part of creation. Therefore, as one of us, he is not so "alien" or "extra-terrestrial" anymore but lives, suffers and eventually dies among us during human history. The final problem is the claim by his followers of his resurrection and ascension to "heaven" which again suggests a home that is not of "this world". That is why I find Christianity to be the most interesting and challenging of the world religions. Here, God is claimed to have made himself vulnerable by entering history through the womb of a poor young unmarried Jewish woman living in one of the most contested regions in history. A story that at first glance is so outrageous that it forces one to think... why pick such a difficult and unlikely person to represent God on earth? If it is but a fable, why make it so strange and unbelievable? Some say that one of the best evidence for the story of Christ to be true is that it is too difficult and unlikely to have been invented.

      I enjoyed reading your post!I agree with your analogy of who are we to presume to know what God is thinking??? God's origin is a mystery! We can only presume to know! I have my theories as well! I will probably put them in hubs later! I have a new hub... please read it

      Yes I have played with the concept that God is from another planet and yet...if this is so, then who made God? I have looked into a lot of posibilites and came to the conclusion that there is a God who has a relationship with his creation. There is also a deciver who wants us to buy into anything else but the truth.

      If you check out some of my other hubs you will see more of how I came to this realisation. You do have some good hubs here, and I will be back to read more!

      I have met God on many occasions, besides the other millions in the past and those alive today. God has a description of himself, which he gives to humanity if they are interested in knowing him.

      Hint: Gods name is Jesus Christ so he was 100% human also through his own choice.
