Aliens are not demons. Demons don't exist. Aliens do exist. Everything these bible people believe in is fantasy. Invisable gods, invisable spirits, invisable demons, invisable heaven, invisable hell, invisable angels, invisable everything. Such a magical world.
Thing is, when I was a kid, and we thougt of stuff like that, it was called pretending. We imagined playing with an imaginary friend, or role played we were in a western bar and we did shoot outs.
Their whole life is pretending. Its an imaginary world. Why they cannot distinguish that from reality, is beyond me. People loocked up in looney bins have less of an imagination then these people.edit on 6-9-2011 by BrnBdry because: (no reason given)

How arrogant can you be to think that your religion that has been drilled into your head over and over is right about an endless universe? How arrogant are you to think that humans are the only intelligent life form in the universe?
There are religions that existed at one point that said aliens not only were not demons but actually helped humans in development. Many of them were curiously enough destroyed and nearly erased forever by christianity. There has been far more demonic stuff done in the name of worshipping god than for any other reason. To be so small minded as to say "theyre not from earth, they must be demons" is ridiculous.
And i do acknowledge that there could be aliens who are not benevolent and want to destroy. but that doesnt make them demons it just makes them malevolent.
Please everybody just try open yourmind and understand that the earth is but a grain of sand on a beach. There is no way we could be the only ones. Enough with the self-absorbed, geocentric view of the universe. Enough with thinking that aliens have the same thought process as humans. Humans are barely of chimps as far as genes and actually as far as thought process goes. Like George Carlin said, were monkeys with automatic weapons and baseball caps.
We gotta stop thinking of what we'd do if aliens invaded earth, because lets face it if aliens invaded earth we be SOL.
Ha. As far as eerie goes, the Aboriginies of Austrailia, their view of the creation/flood is far closer to the Biblical one.

Oh and I love all the evidence you linked to to back your opinion up.
Keep up the poor work.
Whats with these arrogant people who think aliens are demons?
Just to make this a bit more clear. A lot of Christians think that the end of time nutters are "desperately trying to interpret fairy tales and imaginary characters with martians from outer-space". Most end of times b.s. is doesn't even remotely align with the Bible. "But what abou Revelation?" This was written with a lot of heavy imagry that meant something to the 7 churches it was written to. To know what the heck is going on you have to both know in detail what the culture (in 7 cities!) was like, how they phrased things, how much of it is from earlier texts in the Bible (reaniel, Christ's weeping for the fall of Jerusalem in the Gospels, how much of the pictoral representation has to do with Christ's birth) / *sigh* It takes a lot of tapdancing to make a mountain out of a molehill.

The "aliens are demons" assumption originates from the off-the-wall end-timers of the Christian faith who are desperately trying to interpret fairy tales and imaginary characters with martians from outer-space.
Two crazy superstitions rolled into one silly huge fear-mongering fail.
I used to believe in it too... until I started thinking for myself instead of relying on the end-time sites to think for me...
I was once a delusional end-time nutter too.
Oh well, glad to have awoken.
Oh, no, non-believers do the same thing--even for Dino bones.

Why should your posts gain that reaction? It's not like fervently non-christians ever post that to a Christian over their strongly oppositional beliefs, either. If your beliefs are so easy to change, then you have no reason to have founded your life-long behaviors on them. Your asking people to give up WHO they are when you challenge them, not merely what they believe.

The rest was very sound, and this is still a viable arguement, but just one point: Hitler. Hitler was most definately a human, as were his followers. Possible Demon posession aside, the scientists under Hitler did all that for a vast number of reasons, but clearly there was a lack of belief in EVERY life being sacred. If a "superior being" (demon, alien, transdimensional, superevovled mutants, etc., folks from the future) finds humanity inferior, or not deserving of benevolence, this brutal treatment of abductees makes perfect sense. It's the Human thing to do.

Secondly, why would they lurk around in the background when they got here, abducting/abusing/implanting people, mutilating animals, and primarily challenging tenets of christianity when some sort of communication occurs and matters of religion come up (according to some reports, anyway...)?
