Were earth visiting and perhaps earth “farming” aliens perceived as gods in earlier times? For instance, was the God of the Bible a successful
conqueror of humans? To enter into this discussion I present the first two of the Ten Commandments:
(Exodus 20:2-17 NKJV)
1 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.”
2 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is
in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My
Taking these commandments literally would mean that at the time of Moses there were other gods in contact with humans. If not, why such a commandment
against them? So as to be “jealous” would there not need to be a target for that jealousy as in actual competing gods? "Any likeness of anything
that is in heaven above"? What could that have meant for people without air travel let alone space travel? Were there objects and beings coming from
the "heavens" that people worshipped? Perhaps this simply meant no likenesses of the sun, moon or stars. I think it safe to say that "or that is in
the earth beneath" meant no "golden calves".
The God of the Old Testament gives specific orders to the Jewish people as to how to dispatch of His and their enemies. This despite His sixth
commandment. Entire tribes/nations were wiped out by the Jews. Was this how one alien/god did away with the followers of another alien/god? Perhaps
these tribes were following alien/gods that had left the vicinity of the earth and were not there to either come to the defense of the tribes or to
instruct them on how to defend themselves against the Israelites. Is that how the Jews and not some other tribe became the “chosen people”? Was it
that their God stayed until the end of the fight? Did other godlike aliens just lose interest in the earth at some point?
Could the Bible stating that God always existed be the best way for an alien with an extensive life span to communicate that point to an early tribe
of humans that lived roughly 50 – 100 years? How would humans 4,000 years ago have dealt with facing an advanced space race? Could the Bible
prophesies have been first communicated and then fulfilled by aliens with extended life spans and time traveling ability with the intention of
controlling humans through the ages? Perhaps with the intent of harvesting humans or their spirits in some manner?
I don’t want this to get bogged down discussing only the God of the Bible. Were aliens vying for godlike control over various parts of this planet
throughout history? Was there competition between godlike aliens? Were the religions that currently dominate our world started by the most intelligent
and/or most successful of the alien gods? Were the Sumerians, Egyptians, Mayans, Native Americans and other ancient peoples documenting alien
visitors? Are the Chilean Atacama Desert Glyphs, Peruvian Nazca Lines, Egyptian Pyramids, Easter Island Moai and other ancient artifacts evidence of
failed competitors for human control and conquest? Were failed competitors simply bad at communicating with humans?
Were some populations and geographic regions poor choices for alien intervention? Did some aliens simply get what they wanted and leave, abandoning
their human followers? Was this why previously thriving civilizations fell into ruin if not extinction? Were aliens the catalysts for building
advanced civilizations from scattered human populations?
Was Allah an alien god attempting to divert followers of earlier alien gods? Perhaps attempting to steal the human harvest before the prophesized
“second coming”? Are godlike aliens still at work on the earth?
Sorry to have presented this as a series of questions. I know there are ATS members with extensive knowledge in the various specialties that intersect
in this thread. I hope you find the premise of alien/gods intriguing enough to contribute your opinion. Thank you for your attention and thanks in
advance for your contributions.
