Will we worship Aliens as “gods”?

This post was inspired by another thread on the alien board, but I didn’t want to hijack it into something the author didn’t intend. The other thread was about the 10 commandments and worshiping other “gods.”

I believe that when the alien presence is acknowledged world-wide, there will be many that will fall to their knees in worship.

Scenario: A large UFO lands on the White House lawn. The aliens announce, through CNN, FOX, BBC, world-wide media, that they have come back to check up on their creation (us). They give us cures to the current problems in the world (unlimited energy, medicine, and peace). They simply state that they seeded us on Earth 50,000 years ago, and now they have returned to see how we are doing, and give us a hand to help us over our current hurdle.

People begin to see them as our “creator.”

Much scientific theory is adapted to fit the new information.

Many religions fall.

A new religion forms that has all of the answers, and yes, people worship the beings as “gods.” After all, they have all of the answers to the questions that we have so desperately asked for 4000 years. “Where did we come from?” “Are we the only sentient life?” “Why are there so many religions?” “Are any of them correct?”

They give us peace for the first time in our short history. They state that they have been around since the beginning of time, they put us here, and they will be our new providers and protectors.

There will be MANY who believe.

The only problem is: none of it is true; they are the lying enemies of God (angels who tried to seize power.)

All who worship them (read believe them) will have angered the one true God. We will have done exactly what He warns us against doing so many times.

And it is the one crime that He will not pardon.

If you believe that it is possible that there is a “Creator,” then is it such a big step to believe that he may have given us a “Plan” to go (grow) by?

Is it so hard to fathom that that old book of scrolls and myth could actually be written (inspired) by our Creator and it is our blueprint for existence on this puny planet?

Alternatively, if you do not believe in a Creator, then will you believe the aliens when they state that they put us here? Will all of the scientific evidence finally click in your head, leaving you with only one conclusion: this must be true?

No....not today......though I believe man did back in biblical times. Today I personally feel only an idiot would!

It's funny for me to picture that scenario. It would be the completion of a full circle. The cargo cult that has gone mainstream, finally meeting their god.

Why anyone would be interested in baby sitting 6 billion people on this earth is beyond comprehension.

That sounds like a part of the bible called Revelations when the Anti Christ proclaims his self as God and performs mirecles and people start to worship him and he makes peace for 7 years before God comes down from the heavens and destroys him.

I agree with your whole post. My thoughts on babysitting 6 Billion people, are that the aliens want to finish what they started when they tried to take over control.

They were kicked out, and we (Earthlings) were protected from their intrusion for a time. They could believe that by taking us “from God” by convincing us that what we believe or know, is false, they will in fact, take God’s most cherished creation away from Him. Kinda the ultimate revenge, so to speak.

I would never worship Aliens as Gods but rather respect them as sentient beings like myself who are enlightened in scientific knowledge.

Let’s not suggest that someone who could believe this scenario is an idiot, even though that is only your opinion. I do not believe that is the case, and I would like to hear from some of the folks on this board who could see this happening.

I would like to hear all sides.

That is a very astute post, Killak420. My scenario does include a possible interpretation from this book.

We "society" won't ....
but our ancestors probably did...
and yeh... that's probably how quite a few religeons got started.

We're too far beyond that, we already have children obsessed with basketball, hockey, baseball, movie and music stars... idolizing them and treating them as Gods... Aliens would most likely be something strange to most people and only special or unique to a certain few like certain religeous groups/cults...

How do you truely know who the Anti-Christ would be? The God in the Bible sounded pretty vengeful to me(eye for an eye in the old testemenrt). And all the serpent in the Garden of Eden tried to do is give man knowlege. Doesn't sound that bad to me.

The Egyptians did it and so did a lot of other cultures back then until they probably discovered the truth, that they were false Gods and fallen angels but who knows? I personally and anyone I know will NOT worship these aliens as gods but Im sure I'll know when the real Jesus is here.

Will society worship them? If society can worship movie stars, then why can't they worship powerful and more knowledgable beings from the universe with supernormal abilities. They were will be literally gods to us and so many in our society will worship them, idolize them etc.

It really depends on how the aliens present themselves, but any advanced race could easily take advantage of naive humans.

I don't claim to know who the anti-christ is. I am simply offering a scenario of how ”it” could all play out. I feel that the Earth is ripe for the picking, and a malevolent race of aliens (call them whatever you want to) could be part of the plan.


And all the serpent in the Garden of Eden tried to do is give man knowlege. Doesn't sound that bad to me.


Many believe that the serpent (lizardman?) did this to retaliate on God for the serpent's eviction from Heaven. Didn’t like the idea of being kicked out, so he took it out on God’s favorite new creation, by convincing them to do something that God had outlawed.

Another line of thought is that there was no death until man acquired the knowledge of good and evil. One of the first things that happened after this, involved the killing (sacrifice) of an animal so that the skins could be made into clothes. I doubt our “Creator” would need to kill in order to simply make clothes. Why didn’t he just create them out of dust or something else?

Our newly acquired knowledge (crime) and the serpent actually caused death to enter our world to become a reality. I mean, think about it... Adam had it made! Food to eat, a good looking babe at his side, and he got to be buddies with the Creator while they strolled around a beautiful garden.

For his mistake, Death became real.

I guess it all depends on the circumstances.

If we learn the aliens really did create humanity, and we are their "children," then a certain revernece might be in order, stopping short of worship.

If they are just another species like us only a few hundred thousand years (or more) ahead, we should look at them more like a big brother we can get advice from.

If the above was happening, would you begin to believe?

What would it take to convince you that all we know is wrong?

I saw a link in the signature line in the 10 commandments thread you spoke of earlier, you might be interested.

"http://www.satansrapture.com/"

Sorry, I can't remember whose signature line it was, I hope no one minds I borrowed it and didn't give them credit.
