Ok this was meant to be a reply, not a thread....lol what the hell, lets make it a thread!
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
writer Arthur C. Clarke
Today we don't call Travis Walton a prophet, rather an abductee......
Science and education has given us a different avenue to explore rather than label it as faith and subsequently ascribe worshiping a entity.
I suppose my question is, why do people believe that angels are holy creatures, and not aliens? They come from the 'heavens' after all.
I have very little faith or belief in religion or UFOs... But doesn't mean Im not curious....
Is the Bible, simply the old school version of ATS? Researching UFOlogy?
Are religious people mistaking "miracles" and bright lights, burning bushes, pillars of fire for scientific technology?
Are you simply trained to believe the explanation of 'god' given thousands of years ago, as no other science was present?
Many on ats are interested in the possibility of finding ancient technologies, the pyramids being a claim many make were made by aliens ( which I
completely disagree with) yet from times past there are many religions that have died off like Mayan, classic Greek Pantheon and Egyptian that people
claim are evidence of alien intervention on earth, but the same people wont indulge the religions that are alive today as being possibly evident of
the same kind of evidence.
Do any religious people feel they can consider what they have been taught to worship, means believing in alien intervention.
The Bibles and the Paranormal.
"And God said, Let the Earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself,
upon the Earth: and it was so. And the Earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was
in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good."
Garden of Eden...Greenhouse. Instead of interpreting a higher intelligence transforming a cratered, barren planet into an oasis, we say it was the
"Moses was minding the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, Priest of Midian. He left the flock along the side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the
mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in the flame of the burning bush"
Moses and the Hebrews were 'saved' from execution by an angel...is it a supernatural skygod? Why would a creator want worship? Isn't life a gift? What
creature with columns of fire would insist on this kind of worship? How does worship keep existence going? What is the purpose in worship, other than
to create a collective you have power over? What change to creation and expansion of the universe does worship provide? I think thought can expand
infinity but lets not get all metaphysics
I personally believe the pillar was a sirocco like wind found in the middle east, why else would god ask people to wander aimless for 40 years? did
they not know where they were going? If they were aliens, they could travel space and time, why would they not know how to get a few kilometers south
"After taking Isaiah to Heaven, the angel was requested to return the prophet to earth. Isaiah said: 'Why so soon? I have only been here two hours.'
The angel said: 'Not two hours, but thirty-two years...do not be sad, you will not be an old man.'"
Sounds like a classic abduction to me. The old time difference we here about today, but today, we don't say it was angels and gods we say it was
little green or grey men.
Was he on a craft traveling FTL? that allows for the missing time on earth? Should people still be looking at these stories as something to worship
and revere? rather than UFO research?
Ezekials "'chariot of Yahveh' "
"And I looked, and behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire unfolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out the
midsts thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midsts of the fire. Now as I beheld the living creatures behold one wheel upon the earth by the
living creatures, with four faces. The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of beryl [a greenish sheen] and they four had
one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. When they went, they went upon their four sides,
and they turned not when they went. As for their rings, they were so high they were dreadful, and their rings were full of eyes [portholes?]. And when
the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.
Withersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the
living creature was in the wheels."
This is a creator? really?
""Do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation),before we clove them asunder?..." and the
continues about universe: And it is We who have built the universe with (Our creative) power;and,verily,it is We who are steadily expanding it."
Sounds much like perfectly acceptable metaphysics discussions we have today.
The Quran describes us as being part of a multi universe....much like physicists today are saying.
The Star of Bethlehem...a star really? a star? How does a star come and go, a craft does, not a planet, we know stars are planets. But this little
puppy blinked and bopped around the place like the Phoenix lights.
Moses, Buddha, Elijah, Muhammad Jesus and other 'prophets' were all 'taken up'
Why believe taken up means to a heaven, why not a abduction? Are the heavens a multi universe? Not clouds and unicorns and harps and winged cherubs
Will The ATS ALIENS AND UFO FORUM be worshiped in 2000 years as the word of God?
Either way if they did make appearances in ancient times, I think they gave up interfering when they saw the mess we make of things lol.
