Hello all. My name is Sara and I signed up because I came across this site while reading about dreams. I'm in my early 30's and have found that my life is about getting closer to the God of my understanding as well as learning why we exist and what the purpose of it all is. For some reason, this seems to make me a strange person, although I find it strange to live your life mechanically oblivious, focusing only on the survival of everyday life. So I delve into that which can only be known to the individual who believes in their heart that things are one way or another.
I believe in other states of existence than the physical realm we knowingly exist in. I believe that the essence of what is us, our soul if you will, lives on after this physical shell expires. Sometimes we choose to come back as a new person, sometimes we don't. Sometimes we can't because we have "unfinished business" in our previous lives. I consider myself a Christian, but have many conflicting ideas about interpretation of the Bible.... Example: when Jesus refers to his father having many mansions, I believe he is referring to these different states of existence... Realms... Or dimensions. That being said, I believe God is a river with many wells, therefore Buhdism or any other religion is just as valid in my eyes as Christianity. More importantly is believing that our essence will live on and in one way or another have to answer for the way we lived in this life.
I'm a believer in the ancient alien theory... And yes if Aliens exist (and I find it obvious they do)they operate in this universe under the same laws of nature therefore the have the same God as we do, whether they are compassionate beings or not. I find it unlikely that a sentient civilization could thrive to the point of space travel without having had wars, disasters, and plagues all of which inspire compassion at least on earth... So it makes sense to assume they don't wish to medel in our progress as a species.
Hmmmmm there's lots of other theories and questions I have about the nature of reality and I long to both share those ideas and form new theories, so I look forward to this type of forum.
Thank you for reading and please comment so I can start threads soon! I'm so excited to be a part of this and I look forward to being an active participant!

Then I might suggest you avoid anything even remotely resembling politics, religion, high strangeness, the environment, and many other subjects that tend toward rancor, meanspiritedness, animosity, resentments and overt agendas....

Compassion, sympathy and respect is in short supply lately!!!

Welcome and get ready for the ride, I am confused, I am Roman Catholic and what you said is confusing to me, how can you believe in God and believe in Aliens?

I once mixed the two in school and was sent to the fathers office to meet the yard stick, but now I don't practice the faith but do believe we are not alone.

So my question is God really an Alien?

Interesting question. OK, first, your catholic right, so you believe what the Bible says about God creating the heavens and Earth. Meaning God created the whole universe.... Presumably with the big bang. So if there are other sentient beings out in the universe, then God must have created them aswell.
Now, ancient alien theory. Maybe the aliens that I believe came to earth in the past and may be monitering us now, tried to play God??? Maybe they found a primitive species evolving much like they did and decided to mess with our genes... To me this explains why so much of our brains potential goes unused. I don't know what their motivation would be... To help our species along the way... Maybe we are a race built for slavery, I don't know. What is it, the drake equation (i think) says there should be millions of civilizations in our universe. So I personally am sure that their is life out there. But its like with ghosts, enough people have seen and experienced things that there should be no question, but I think people are scared, so they say must have been your imagination or so and so is crazy. Does that answer your q?
