What if God Was an Alien?

Updated on August 23, 2013

Do you think that life on Earth might have been seeded by extraterrestrials?

Genesis 1:1 states, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth." But who is this God that had the power to create life? Who created God? There are several theories out there which attempt to explain the origin of life on Earth. One such theory entertains the idea that life may have been seeded on Earth by extraterrestrial beings, which, if this theory is proven true, would mean that God was an alien.

There are three versions of the extraterrestrial seed theory on the origin of life on Earth. The first is that long ago a meteor fell to Earth, which contained at least one extra-planetary organism, from which life evolved into what we know today. The second is just as simple. Long ago Earth was visited by extraterrestrial beings, who may have left some bacteria behind, whether unintentional or planned we may never know, which then evolved to populate the Earth.

The third theory is a bit more complex. In 1976, a man by the name Zecharia Sitchin claimed that beings called Anunnaki from the planet Nibiru, the tenth planet in our solar system, whose strongly elliptical orbit brings it close to Earth approximately ever 3,500 years, visited the Earth around 485,000 years ago and engineered human beings by mixing their own DNA with that of homo erectus. The Anunnaki visit Earth every time their orbit brings them close enough to stop by and help us out, which according to Sitchen, can explain some strange messages in ancient Sumerian texts and artifacts that appear to reference these visitors and their activities among us. Several scientists, archaeologists and historians have since jumped on the bandwagon, supporting Sitchin's theory, expanding upon this idea to explain anything from strange references in the Hebrew Bible, to the strangely advanced society of the Mayans and Aztecs.

For many years, science has been striving to, once and for all come up with a proven explanation of the origin of life on Earth. Since none of our theories to date have been scientifically proven, the origin of life remains open to debate. Though some theories may seem far-fetched, it is important that we remain open to as many possibilities as possible. Sometimes the truth ends up being the simplest explanation, but sometimes the truth can come as a complete surprise.

      As the author of "The What If; Theory; Aliens, God & Us." I say that the only possibility would be God is a dementional being and yes therefore alien to our world.

      Lots of theories out there over the years, put out by various humans - we have yet to encounter the 'alien' among us in our time( modern time). Since we have a mind that can be curious and want to know things, I think it is good to keep the inquiry open. It helps, in my opinion, to keep that sense of wonderment about it all.

      Many programs and books written on the subject available for our curiosity and questioning. Keep it going.

      I don't know if you read Chariot of the Gods, by Erich von Daniken; but if you haven't, you should. It talks about a lot of the subject matter in your hub. Great interpretation.

      Well, this is just as believable as all the religious teachings throughout the ages on the beginning of life on earth. I guess we will probably never know for sure where we all came from. And that really doesn't bother me that much. :)

      PS Unless an alien shows up and claims responsibility!

      50, It was never my intention in writing this hub to lead anyone astray from their personal beliefs. I am merely relaying information to the public. What people choose to do with that information is none of my concern. If relaying information about theories that differ from those of monotheistic faiths is a sin, I proudly admit my sin! I feel that it is important for people to be aware of other ideas in order to make a truly informed decision on what they choose to believe. If encouraging people to think for themselves is a sin, I say bring on the fire and brimstone!

      TMApsey, the depth of the total use of the human brain has, to my knowledge or any single human that I know or have read about, has yet to be tapped in a conscious human. If one were to find the key to the use of the mind, holding the faith of the proverbial mustard seed compounded with a pure heart of love and reaching a plateau of living a sin or evil free life, I have faith that person would see Yah and become a worker of great things just as God, Yahweh has done here on earth. Your writing led me to view a couple of videos on youtube. I agree that what is known is and has been kept in the dark the thought that the Ark of God has been set upon the northern continent of the Americas quite possible, the thought that it is being molded into an evil ring of transmitters and it's move will continue to China then on to complete it's circle that will be from which it came, Syria/Jerusalem and by evil the world will be ruled in total, a one world order will be completed.

      If I for one second believed that this was truth and the only out come and it was to complete the eye of Satan to monitor and end lives who didn't conform, I would pick up my favorite hand gun stick it to my chest at heart level and blow a hole the size of Texas through me, ending what would be a waste of time to bother with.

      Fortunately, I have experienced the ever watchful eye of Yahweh that set this earth in motion and blessed me in so many ways that I have reached the point of total satisfaction with no want and just under 2 decades of peace and have overcome Satan by connecting with the holy spirit. As technology expands and people are dumbed down allowing machines to think and do things like read a book to them, work mathematical problems for them I feel a sadness for them as they lose the wonder of the miracle of life.

      You have produced a stumbling block by printing this essay designed to produce doubt in the weak, and in those seeking the truth. If you cause a person to drop from the path through the narrow gate and that person takes the wide easy path that leads to destruction, in my mind you have murdered that person and it may lead to a multitude of persons, and you taking the role of teacher, come the great day of judgement and you are standing alone [as we all will] when Yahweh asks you why did you lead the weak astray and cause them to be banished to the place of Satan. What will you say in answer for that deed?

      I will pray for you. I voted this up and interesting, someone else thought it was funny, I thought it sad, 50
