I personally do not think that religion could continue in that case,how could the various religions equate the two.
we were created ,sinned ,thus causing Jesus to come and redeem us,if there are other beings out there what was the point of Jesus Christs
So you think that there will be ZERO technological implementation in order for HEaven to be created? and ZERO technological involvement in order to
biologically recreate people that have died? and ZERO bio-technological aspects of how the city of New Jerusalem will be built?
I think the GOOD thing about this concept you present is that there is massive window of opportunity to LEARN MORE about religiouns. .thei mysteries
I think the way you put it is very short sighted ..so short sighted as that of a mentally handicapped individual...
and you should get to the back of the line when it comes to the discussion.
nothing personal it's just how i see it..
since you read a book and believed everything in it on face value without challenging it, without looking deeper in it for practical knowledge and
mysteries... and DENIED YOURSELF the use of your questioning mind that god gave you... then you've no right to participate in the discussion.. even
though you started it here.
open your freaking mind.. stop being so closed minded.
there is MORE than what you were taught in church.
the fairy-tale perception is just the SURFACE of the religion... christ is a symbolic aggregate of philosophy, phisiological transcendence.. and
it's not about a dude that died way back so that you could live.
it's about the sacrifices we all make .. the leaving of the human form.. and the metamorphosis into a higher body and higher mentality.
if i were you, i'd also look into how "beings from above" play DIRECTLY into the pre-=modified and pre-censored versions of the bible.. the torah..
and they play special roles in the Bhagavad Gita.. Egyptian mythology..
it's time to start really THINKING about what these SYMBOLIC MYTHS we've been GIVEN.. actually MEAN ..
because many people already have agreed on what they actually mean.. and use these mythical psychological-essences as GUIDES as to how to direct
mankind... which tasks to perform.. which goals to accomplish.
the more short-sighted you FORCE yourself to be...
the more emotionally-shocked you will be when the truth begins to rise around you and the more unprepared you'll be when the rest of the world
understands these revelations and leaves you behind.
I don't think ONE alien race can come and say this or that to "make" anything different in your mind.
You've got to study it ALL .. and challenge what other PEOPLE TOLD YOU was true.
in order to understand and ingest it on a PERSONAL level.. and see the beauty therein..
there is deeper knowledge and more to learn.
you're short-changing yourself by remaining in the "toddler" bed-time-story version you were taught as a kid and remained believing into your adult
don't believe that the first "aliens" you see are actually "aliens"...
don't fall for it.
think for yourself.
a mind that ceases to question is clinically DEAD.
believe in nothing.
because everything is ALWAYS CHANGING.
