Check out this chart showing the similarities between angels, aliens, and the gods of mythology. It's kinda cool to see everything side by side in one place.

Check Out This Cool Comparison Chart

My personal opinion is that they are all the same thing, just interpreted in different ways throughout history. I don't buy the claim that cultures just made up gods to explain what they don't understand, when even in the modern day we have the same stories, but we've replaced the word "gods" with "aliens".

What do you guys think?

We decipher the info via metaphore. The metaphore at the minute is aliens and alternate realities. When our understanding and knowledge is expanded then we will eventually get the right metaphore for the message.

I believe it is nature and it can communicate via metaphore which is in turn your level of understanding. That is why so many differences in interpretations are evident. god and religion are a lesser understanding of the true messaege.

Why do you ASSUME that God and religion are the lesser? Maybe belief in aliens is the lesser and we've gone backwards. There are things on this planet such as the Great Pyramid that we are just now becoming capable of understanding. It's possible that we've started over sometime between now and then.

Steve Quayle and L.A. Marzulli expounded on this stuff years ago. Marzulli did a lecture explaining the similarities between aliens and fallen angels (as decribed in the Bible) that was chilling.

The Quick Reference Chart you provided is great!

Looked at realistically there is little if anything 'we' didn't understand about the Great Pyramid - our ancestors built the thing after all, but we have many theories of what some people like to attribute to it. The two are not the same thing.

Where did I say god is the lesser? we are not intelligent enough to understand what god could represent. If there is a god then there is a million things between it and us. The worst thing we posses is the thought god even knows about us. We are a by product of what he is trying to achieve.
We really are SPECIAL to our families and friends only. If we mattered then we would not have taken so long to appear and we would have an instinct to be divine, not want to be divine.

They all came from sky and could fly?

Thing is a lot of mythologies revere the forces and cyclic events of nature, and are interpretations of perceptions of how things worked, like the Sun rising and setting, and being revered and having a God attributed to it in almost every culture.

If aliens or UFO's had been worshiped, and were the explanation, as well insinuation for the creation of Gods, then a lot of religions would have a common reverence and interpretation of them. However, it kind does seem that is not the case, since a lot of the mythologies and religions have their category of Gods and mythical beasts. Also, if an Alien force or empire was the inspiration, most of the religions around the world would share some similar form of worship.

Like blood sacrifices being a form of worship, where worshiping Ra, one would have to sacrifice an animal of sorts, or wheres as the Aztecs would sacrifice people so the sun won't die, or how the Jews sacrificed goats for rain, while the Vikings would pay tribute to their main god, by fighting and killing.

Take the differences of mythologies like Ancient Judaism and Christianity for example, in ancient Judaism, Angels are highly feared, more so then Demons due the warrior like nature they have, and were considered a force to be reckoned with that required no worship. And they would have some weird depictions of them as well, where they'd belong in the mythological beast category.

Where as Christianity often depicts them as looking human, being spiritual guides and being much less intimidating then the Judaism version.

Not all angels work for God. Fallen angels have a different agenda.

Thank you for posting I find these things fascinating.

I do believe all of the stories are related, but I see them as metaphorical from a spiritual aspect. But if it is all from Aliens that would be cool with me.

Correct, he explains this in the text as well:


8. They Have An Agenda

When we take a serious look at fallen angels, aliens, and gods, they all seem to have an agenda to divert worship away from God. One example of this is during alien abductions. Abductees have reported being told that Jesus was nothing more than an ascended master that was resurrected using technology. In the Bible, we are warned about angels preaching an alternative gospel:

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” – Galatians 1:8

ministerfortson.com...


Neville Johnson talks about the origins of demons in the video below and says that Angels and demons are totally different breeds, starting at the 49 min. point:


"The children that were produced were called Nephilim. The word "Strange" flesh here is from the Greek which means, has a meaning of a different generic breed.”

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Jude 1:7

As to the specific sin of these angels, we are given the facts in Jude 7. As in the case of Sodom and Gomorrah it was the sin of "fornication" and it means "going after strange flesh." "Strange" flesh means flesh of a different kind (Greek "heteros"). To commit this particularly repugnant sin, the angels had to abandon their own domain and invade a realm that was divinely forbidden to them. Says Wuest:

"These angels transgressed the limits of their own natures to invade a realm of created beings of a different nature."

Alford confirms:

"It was a departure from the appointed course of nature and seeking after that which is unnatural, to other flesh than that appointed by God for the fulfillment of natural desire."

The mingling of these two orders of being, was contrary to what God had intended, and summarily led to God's greatest act of judgment ever enacted upon the human race.

Allegorical interpretation is something that religion would have us believe...

The Bible is to be taken literally unless the text in question is obviously symbolic.

The Bible DOES frequently employ allegory, such as in Gal.4:21-24.

But it also makes it perfectly clear when doing so.


Nothing in the Bible is complicated. God would be stupid to write a book that people couldn't understand. That'd be the stupidest thing that He ever did. ~ Norvel Hayes (@ 3 min)

If you don't believe the Bible....fine...don't believe it. But don't suggest that one part should be taken allegory when another part of the Bible CLEARLY indicates that it isn't. I'm guessing you don't do that with other forms of literature, do you?

If you have a history book on George Washington, do you decide to read chapter 3 as an allegory, but the rest of it as fact simply because you don't want to believe the events of chapter 3 took place? If chapter 14 is believed to be historical---and it refers to the events of chapter 3 as historical....why would you believe chapter 3 to be allegory?

Is The Bible Literal Or Allegorical?

The Bible, history's most published, studied, translated and quoted book, is also its most misused and misinterpreted book. Cults and false religions use it to their own ends and others simply misinterpret it. That this occurs so often leads many to assume the Bible has no clear meaning. This is a false assumption.

As mentioned in the introduction, allegorizing Scripture has a long and destructive history. The reason many have been sold on the allegorical method is the false assumption that since the Bible is a spiritual book, inspired by the Holy Spirit, that it therefore contains hidden or secret meanings.

Many contemporary preachers are quite adept at allegorizing passages of Scripture. According to them, Jesus can be found teaching modern success theories, positive thinking, liberation theology (Marxism), Unitarianism, the New Age, or anything else. Remember that the key reason for the allegorical method's existence was to integrate the Bible with Greek philosophy or whatever other contemporary worldly ideas that seemed popular and desirable. The resurrection can be allegorized into the new hope that springs into being with the cycles of nature: bunnies, and green grass. Or it can be allegorized as something analogous to ugly larvae changing through metamorphosis into butterflies.

cicministry.org...

Historically when people do not like what a document says or they want to make it fit their philosophical bent they allegorize that document. This is what Philo did with the Jewish Bible in Alexandria, Egypt and, early on, some Christians picked up this habit from him and imported it into the church.

digitalcommons.liberty.edu...

When the plain sense of Scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense; therefore, take every word, at its primary, ordinary, usual, literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context, studied in the light of related passages and axiomatic and fundamental truths, indicate clearly otherwise.

The Golden Rule of Interpretation

Those holding to an allegorical interpretation of the Bible point to a variety of scriptures and use them as proof-texts for the claim that God intended for His Word to be interpreted allegorically, and as we shall see, many of these verses have been taken out of context or redefined so as to give the appearance of supporting the false allegorical mode of interpretation. www.scribd.com...

In many dozens, hundreds of cases, THE LITERALISTS WERE ALWAYS PROVEN CORRECT as archeology uncovered more and more confirmation that the Bible was literally true in detail after detail. Some things are literal AND symbolic, both/and. I don't think a great number of things in the Bible are primarily or only symbolic.

Why do GODS need an agenda for ?

They can do pretty much anything.

Why would ALiens need an agenda ?

That's applies earthling preconceptions to an otherly word 'race'.

Aliens can do pretty much anything too.

Although the terminology is pretty much interchangeable.

Aliens/Gods/Angels.

To put it another way since man began walking upright he has had what's basically an inferiority complex.

To modern day man tries to kill GODS/Angels, and he's working on aliens.

I think man is the one with the agenda.
