Demons were the jealous Angels, before they fell after the war in heaven. Demons can take on a variety of different appearances depending on the
situation, their rank, if their on earth, on the earthbound plane, somewhere else in the universe or in hell. Some still appear angelic, but darker
looking. Aliens, can look like a grey alien, or humanoid like us.
You talk like Angels have human emotions. Show me in the Bible where it says that. Angels are created to Serve, nothing more. They have no emotions, I
don't think, because emotions are a human thing. If Angels did have emotions, they would all rebel, from such a cruel and jealous God figure, shown
clearly in the Bible.
Just a few instances:
He ordered killing (Lev. 26:7-8, Num. 25:4-5)
He had a temper (Deut. 13:17, Judges 3
He was often jealous (Deut. 5:9, 6:15)
He wasn't omnipresent (Gen4:16, 11:5, 1 Kings 19:11-12)
He practiced injustice (Ex. 4:22-23, Joshua 22:20, Rom. 5:12)
He punished children for the sins of their fathers (Ex. 12:29, 20:5, Deut. 5:9)
Although other creation stories pre-date those of Genesis, notably the Sumerian “Seven Tablets of Creations” (Enuma Elish), these other stories

Dragon.....The Highest Angelic Heavenly creatures were called Seraphim
, a word which the
highly esteemed and scholarly Jewish Enclyclopedia
means "fiery flying serpent", though medieval Christians have transformed these "dragons" into the more familiar, swan-winged, "cartoon" angels of
popular culture. When the ancient Jews translated the word Seraphim into Greek, the word they used was drakon, which is the word our modern "dragon"
is derived from.
Here some other Creation Stories for your consideration:
The Mesopotamian/Babylonian Creation Story
Maya Creation Story
Norse Creation Story
Zoroastrian Creation Story
Aztec Creation Story
Moses introduced a deity who made in natural to conceive of the Creation as a unified, rational product—something that could scarcely be imagined in
a world populated by many Gods. (Trading one difficulty, for another, however, Moses caused his fellow monotheists to wrestle, as Christians and Jews
today famously do, with the troubling question of evil and suffering. Why would a beneficent, all-powerful Creator tolerate these things in his
Anyway, it seems to be that the story of the Rebellion in Heaven and the Fallen Angels were ripped off from earlier Sumerian stories, such as the
and the Book of Adam and Eve.
In fact, the entire religious dogma is so very confusing, with all of the changes and lies, and cover ups of stuff the Church does not want you, the
reader to know.
I think Extraterrestrials are another matter altogether.
