@ future flow - I think I can agree with you there. These so called "gods" in the Bible were worshipped by men because of the powers and knowledge they possess. They were much superior that's why they were called the heroes of old in the Bible. It is a wonder why the Aztecs, the Mayans, and the Olmecs of the new world possess such advanced knowledge in astronomy, mathematics and engineering. They had a "god" to rule over them to teach them wisdom and knowledge.

He's either talking about angles and him when he says those words instead of me and I, or it's because when these were translated to English it was how royalty referred to themselves, so since the writers consider God the highest of royalty they wrote it that way.

At the risk of going south when I die, I think that the bible may prove that god is not a single being, but may be aliens, that used their own DNA to create mankind.
From the Bible:
Genesis 1:26 - And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness.....
Genesis 2:21 - And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in that place.
Genesis 3:8 - And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking.....
Genesis 3:9 Then the Lord God called to the man and said "Where are you?"
Genesis 3:22Then the Lord God said "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, .....
Why the use of Us, Our?
Does that not sound like a typical Alien Abduction operation?
How was God walking?
Why did God have to ask "Where are you" ?
This is all in the first 3 chapters, there is more throughout the bible, but I thought that this would be a good start for a discussion.

Of course they are. Since they were here before the creation of the Earth apparently.
The real question is: If an alien came out of a UFO claiming to be Jesus. What would you do?

I'm just saing , since it's like infinite or really big , how would a race of alied build a whole universe, I beilive in god for this simple reason, it is what keeps me connected to god, his big creation, the universe.
I may agree that maybe cristianity is wrong or any other religion is wrong, but when it comes to god I can't deny his existance as what ever "it" is.
Why are you guys guiding your self on one single religion, I'm christian as an individual, but I don't know, when it comes to god, I just imagine it like something gigantic as an entity rather than a figure of a man or an alien creature from another world.
