There are some extraterrestrial races which posed as "Gods" and "Angels" in ancient times. But they posed as something that really does exist: Spiritual/Celestial Realms.
In other words, just because extraterrestrials exist and posed as higher beings, does not mean that spiritual realms dont exist.

Allow me to expand on your original points.
Imagine "the heavens" populated with all manner of beings created in the "image of god", as the bible claims. These races have no doubt been around for a very long time before man arrived on Earth.
The bible claims that a universal government centered around the creator existed long before man arrived on the scene as well. It's referred to in English biblical translations as the "Kingdom of Heaven".
This "Kingdom of Heaven" is presented in the bible as a very physical, practical reality, not some mystical, ethereal, metaphysical concept as many envision.
Jesus, in his ministry, explained that he was present to establish this kingdom, and that it's final physical establishment would be commenced on his return to Earth.
The "revelations" of Jesus to John reveal "A war in the Heavens". A "great dragon" with a third of the heavens under his command has opposed the established order of the Creator. The Earth has been under the jurisdiction of this Dragon from the beginning of history.
The bible is a record of The kingdom's plans and movements to liberate the Earth from the grips of this "dragon".

Flavius Josephus writes about a man from Galilee named Yeshua ( Jesus ) and that he was a great man .. I think this is him. Josephus was a Jewish historian who was around in those times.. So even if you dont believe what the bible has to say maybe you could believe him
.. There is more evidance to the existance of Jesus than not.

3) Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was [the] Christ. (64) And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men among us, had condemned him to the cross , those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day , as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him. And the tribe of Christians, so named for him, are not extinct at this day.
