If this is the case, it has nothing to do with aliens.
Unless of course it was influenced by them, in which case, it would. How do you know it wasn't?
Also, it does not contradict free will as it is a glimpse into the future showing how it will unfold as our free wills dictate.
And here is your contradiction! What we choose can only be known if the choice does not truly exist and can be foreseen, hence, no free will. If we
have free will, then it cannot be known by anyone what we will choose in the future, God included - again, unless it was already decided and is not
truly free will. Your second contradiction is that the past/present/future exist, given the fact that the entirety of creation had no beginning and
has no ending, and therefore, is eternal in both directions, and this also means there is no "creator God". This means every possible thing that
could ever possibly happen has already happened an infinite amount of times in the infinite past, and will happen an infinite amount of times in the
infinite future, and it will all happen simultaneously at the same time, instantly. If it happened in some sort of order and there was a "timeline",
then it cannot be infinite, which it is.
Another question, if God purportedly created all things, who created free will? Obviously you cannot create anything if you yourself don't already
have free will to begin with...
God knows the past, present and future and is not constricted by time.
The past/future are infinite, to know either would require that you be infinite as well, which means you'd have to be all things, and not separate
from them, nor a creator of anything since all things always existed.
The revelation of how the end of Satan's dominance over the world comes about does not alter our ability to make our choices.
And if we truly have choices to make, it means what is written is only one possibility out of infinity of possibilities! Which one will occur is upto
