Interesting and thought-provoking read. Good thread.
First, IMO, there is no "alien gospel". There are people with questions, some of them researchers who look at history, artifacts and attempt to
delve into the mysteries of same.
I've been watching the Ancient Astronauts series. Please note that it is NOT called "Alien Astronauts", as your OP states. I think there's
more than a bit of evidence to suggest at least that earlier human civilizations saw and recorded things and perhaps beings that they could not
More important though -- at least to me -- is why this seems an affront to you and your religion? I've been accused of being a "universalist"
before because of my statements that:
1. I see no disparity between science and religion -- different words/concepts for similar events.
2. I don't care what God is called -- All That Is, Creator, Yahweh, Washtucna, Kokopelli, Budha, Allah, God. Is it so difficult to imagine that
the Is communed with His creatures within context of different languages and cultures?
Likewise, why could it not be so that [part of] what is described in the Holy Bible could be properly interpreted within modern knowledge as something
different, more technological, than how events are written in the Bible? How might a person in 75 AD describe a spherical flying craft?
One day, way back when I was going to college, I decided to read the Bible again (KJV) and highlight passages that seemed clearly to describe modern
technology. Well, guess what............. I didn't even make it to the often-cited book of Ezekiel before I stopped, noticing that there was more
highlighted than not.
Did this denigrate the Bible? I don't think so. God gave me a brain and free will and humor and a lifetime of questions. Why couldn't
otherworldly beings have been part of His plan? I'm not saying that I entirely subscribe to that theory, however I don't feel that the theory or
possibility conflicts with Scripture.
So, while I respect your beliefs, and your right to be displeased with the History Channel's series, Ancient Astronauts, I also urge you to watch
again, and see if they are asking questions, or making assertions. I feel strongly that the History Channel's productions hardly ever, IF EVER,
answer questions or make assertions. What they do is [hopefully] provoke us to think.
