I believe that the God/s we have come to know are alien species because, an almighty being, such as "God" (whom most people believe in), has never
shown his ass to anyone. There is no evidence, no tangible proof that he has, or will ever, interact with us. Everything written in the bible,
torah, etc... Its all hearsay. Anyone who claims to have spoken with "God," BS. Why? What makes them so special that "God" would give them the
time of day (why would "God" give someone like Bush the time of day - oh wait, religious people eat that stuff up, its good for getting elected, and
being re-elected)? Think about it.
Now, in the ancient texts, why would "God" never show his true form? Why was his identity always hidden? What does "God" have to hide. An alien
species on the other hand, claiming to be "God/s" would have much to hide, especially if they have ulterior motives.
If I were to go to another planet, which has primitive lifeforms, and I'm a greedy sob (who has needs), I'm definately going to say I'm
"almighty," I am a God! Hell, we've seen this type of stuff perpetrated by our fellow humans against other humans. Take Francisco Pizarro and the
Incans as an example.
With only 183 men, they would conquer a sophisticated empire of several million people, a feat that has never been equaled - and it probably never
will be. He was taken to be a returning God by the natives, when he and a few others landed near Panama in 1527 because there was rumors of gold. To
keep the story short, he saw gold, and he wanted it. So, he went back to Spain, got 183 men, and went back. He landed in Ecuador in 1531 and started
to march inland. He and his men killed people here and there and then were finally introduced to Incan royalty.
Atahualpa, the Incan ruler, told his people not to harm them, because he was impressed by their beards and white skin. He believed that they were
fulfilling a prophecy about the return of Viracocha, a legendary bearded prophet from a far away land who had visited the South American peoples many
hundreds of years before.
Native Americans (most) have no facial hair. The first Incas are said to have had reddish-brown hair and beards, like Viracocha. Because of this,
Atahualpa believed that the Spanish were Incas themselves - Sons of the Sun - gods in their own right, just as he, Atahualpa, was a god.
So, the Incans showered the Spaniards with gifts. The gifts weren't enough. Pizarro wanted it all. With that, they looked for a chance to take
over everything. They got an audience with Atahualpa. They told him about the "one true faith" and talked about the Pope and King Charles of
Spain. Atahualpa asked for the source (they were using a translator), they gave him a bible. He put it up to his ear, heard nothing, then threw the
book to the ground.
This is just the gesture they had been waiting for, and with that, the spaniards attacked in full force. And because the Incans had been told to not
do anything, no matter what (most were killed while trying to escape), almost 30,000 of them were taken out in no time at all. 160 of the 183 men
were left standing. And with that, they took Atahualpa captive and started their conquest of riches and gold. All that death just for greed and
self-interest and to feed the Church's and King's large piggy banks - oh, and for "God" (what does God need money for?). Anyways, that was a very
abbreviated version of the events that occurred.
Now, whats interesting is that the Incans have no records of having built most of "their" amazing structures - and most of them do not figure in any
of their legends. The Incans had said that they were there when they got there. And yet, most people are brought up to believe that they built them.
The same can be said for most other ancient peoples - the buildings that we are told they built, were actually there when those people arrived, they
just claimed ownership since the original builders weren't there anymore.
And ancient people are known for drawing what they see. So, why is it most of what they draw always seems to have "alien" creatures mixed in with
the humans and animals of this planet?
Anyways, that probably won't answer your question, lol. But, its sort of what I believe in.
"My" "almighty being" might or might not be the "creator" of all things. Man created "God." Simply put, if we hadn't of thought him up, or
should I say, were "introduced" to he/she/it, would we have even considered there being a "creator" of all things?
Maybe this "almighty being" that I speak of has always existed (somehow) and somehow he/she/it managed to create this massive universe for one
reason or another (or maybe he/she/it didn't, and is really just a "moderator"). Doe the ability to create a universe make something all powerful?
Where does such power come from though? How can something just be? How can there be something without nothing? How can something exist without a
cause and effect?
I guess its best not to constantly think of those questions because it can make one go mad. "God" is more of a comfort thing than anything else -
as well as a control mechanism for the mostly naive populace.
Maybe all the "almighty being" is is just a collective consciousness of all the living creatures in the universe. Maybe that is all that "God"
really is. Ever heard of the saying, "If you wish hard enough, it might just come true?" Multiply that by billions of the same wishes.
I am not looking for the "almighty being" to control us. When I said influence, I meant that he/she/it should at least make their presence known to
us every once in a while, in some shape or form. Maybe just to remind us that we aren't the only things here.
I still think if we were created by one being, it was for he/she/it's amusement.
