One man creating the earth, and all the life, etc etc. Would a far advanced race even take a second to consider it, or make a attempt to debunk it because of their far advanced inteligence.
Or do they have their own "god" figure and would they push it on us?

No matter how smart an "alien" is, they do not have the power to create themselves from nothing.
A non-croporeal species that does not exist in linear time or a fixed space might be able to.
But, corporeal species, for the most part evolved from basic organic matter, so most of them can not' you're correct.

There is no God, 1st off, If those Aliens came down and explained the whole story too us I think we(humans) would rather See them dead than change our beliefe system (B.S). So in other words I hope so. Religion is pretty much usless.

Unfortunately, that's the direction most people go in. Organized Religion has pretty much always done more harm than good - but spirituality is what has brought out the best in people. Believing in God does not mean that you are religious.
I believe in God, but I don't believe in pretty much everything that happened in the Bible. I think that if Jesus did exist, then he had one message that's been much too warped - and it's this: "Be Excellent To Each Other"
That's it man. All that BS about "the only path is through me" and "Mary was a virgin!" and "Kill the heretic!" stuff is bunk and stupid. And don't think for a moment that it's just restricted to christianity. Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism... they're all guilty. Organized religion is an oxymoron, for everyone's beliefs are unique and personalized, and cannot be so easily grouped into one category. Everyone has the right to believe what they will.

My first post on this site....... but as this seems to be aimless speculation, one could as well speculate that aliens arriving on earth might just as well be dumbfounded that human's had so little inclination to believe in "God", if their own philosophy was such as to make Him a certainty.
