Heaven help us! (Pun intended) and Good Lord, you present this a a startling new thought?
Dial back about five decades ago and you can find some good arguments on this. But, of course, we have a couple or three generations since and some of them are ignorant of this argument.
It will come to pass to be recognized that all religions are manifested by the ETs for early humans to give them some guidence in all areas. And of course, that would have happened without Jesus and the other human teachers anyway because the ETs were recognized back then for being exactly what they are and those early, but thinking, humans of the time would have deify them for what they actually are, as saviors. Human teachers were provide to make the necessary teachings more human-based, the boot-strap way. The instructions coming from On High via burning bushes and stone slabs just didn't do the job. A more intimate, personal and human touch was reqired to guide the herd.
Anyway, this is probably a worthy thread for the youngsters despite my bitchin." But after all, I've been around longer than the flying saucer saga and have seen too much already.
