Here's an interesting article I just came across. Hopefully some find it interesting.


The discovery of intelligent aliens would be mind-blowing in many respects, but it could present a special dilemma for the world's religions, theologians pondering interstellar travel concepts said Saturday.



In other words, "Did Jesus die for Klingons too?" as philosophy professor Christian Weidemann of Germany's Ruhr-University Bochum titled his talk at a panel on the philosophical and religious considerations of visiting other worlds.


The article then goes into how the existence of other worlds might reflect on our religions and ideologies and if certain religions might have more difficulties adapting.


Another possibility is that God incarnated multiple times, sending a version of Himself down to save each inhabited planet separately. However, based on the best guesses of how many civilizations we might expect to exist in the universe, and how long planets and civilizations are expected to survive, God's incarnations would have had to be in about 250 places simultaneously at any given time, assuming each incarnation took about 30 years, Weidemann calculated.


Which brings us to an interesting point. If we are not the only life in the universe and God had to be incarnated on multiple worlds, what does that do to the idea of Holy Trinity. How does Jesus become equal to God and not only a prophet if God has to appear on many worlds in a similar manner? The idea of trinity falls apart to become multiplicity.

Anyways, thought it was an interesting article.

interesting indeed.

the simple answer would be anything is possible for god.

sure, he can be he can be everywhere at once.

i remember a star trek episode that had jesus being persecuted on a planet they were visiting.


from what we know of our experience only, it seems like the timing of the coming would depend on certain events.

but then we are talking about god and only he knows what's really going on.

IF, and I do mean IF; YHWH does actually exist, he is an extraterrestrial...in the truest sense of the word:

...not of this earth.

God created ALL LIFE! What's the prob?

At very least, it does kind of prove creationism is a bunch of bunk. However, most christianists will just say something along the lines of god creating them too, even if the ETs were to laugh at the christianists version of god. Oh, they would also try to spread the good news to them. I would LOVE to be in that room.

And what makes us so special that He would incarnate on planet Earth of all places, be here as a part of the Holy Trinity and then die here to save us sinners on planet Earth?

Or has he done this elsewhere?

If he has done this elsewhere, what is Trinity?

Simple statement, I can't understand why people can't accept the concept. To believe an all powerful creator could only create the earth and us as his only creation is really being quite self-centered.

Don't be fooled. God is real.

If ETs are real, "The Creator" God, created them.

Forget religions.. What are scientists and politicians going to do when they find out the Truth?

I'm not entirely sure who YHWH is.. But God does exist. God is the only thing that exists. And the earth is of him, never the other way around.

Well of course Yahweh is an extraterrestial, thats what the bible have been talking about for more than 2000 years, why you think churches of today ( Religion ) took out the book of Enoch? Because the book of Enoch talks clearly about this and so does the bible, look at the book of Ezequiel for instant, is clear Ezequiel describes these celestial enteties.

I've been warning people for about 5 years now of how these things are about to come, five years latter is when finally are waking up and realising that all humanity has been in some sort of spell or mined transit to believe anything but the truth.

Yes! Yahweh is real and he is the God of creation, I said many times that Illuminati invented all Religion of this world just like politics to divide and conquer. The truth lies on our history and the bible is not religion but a book of our human history.

They have been hiding the name of God YH/WH they've been mistranslated and misleading all humans to believe that God's name Yh/Wh is God, Lord, Jehovah, Jesus Crhist, Trinity, but not his real name ( Yahweh ) Yh/Wh, יהוה God.


This is why in todays bible none of them mentions the name of YH/WH .. Yahweh, is been taken out of text, with all the names above.

We all know how this one will play out.
When we finally come across undeniable proof of intelligent extraterrestrial life, most religions will call them demons.

When we finally come to our senses from the initial shock, we will realize they are not demons but they will be segregated from humans because, afterall, WE are God's chosen, not Them; besides their customs and beliefs will be so different than ours...and letting them date our daughters...absolutely not...!

And in time we will accept them into our communities, but. Only if they accept that Our Jesus died for Their sins...


Seriously though...What if aliens showed up and demonstrated how organic life can be created from inorganic matter?

THEN what would happen to Religion? Nothing, because it would adapt to survive...because Faith defies Rationality.

The Klingons for the most part already had their own Jesus, or they already knew what he had to teach.

What if they have horns and red faces and split tongues? And they feast on children's brains and torture and rape everyone? Even then we will realize they are not demons?

These so call Aliens are all celestial beings, they had wars in heavens in the past and even now they are at war. Our governemnt are helping, not! the good guy's but the bad guy's. There is a celestial division among these celestial enteties, the bible refers to them as "Fallen Angels" and "Angels sons of God" the fallen ones have been here sinse day one, in the past they usto travel thrue the pyramids from all around the world, they went even into the kingdom of God, but once the grate heavenly war started, God prohibit them to travel any longer to heaven. So now they are trap here in this Planet Earth, why would the military persecute several kinds of UFO like Orbs and Cigar Shape and some Flying Disc like the one in Roswell New Mexico and not the ones that show up in most remote areas.


I've never seen the military following a V shape UFO or a Triangular shape UFO, is all because they have made you believe that the real second coming of Yeshuah is the threat to humanity, with movies, books and even in thew radio, in which is not truth! Yes is a threat to the governemnt of this world aka Nephilim aka Hybrid and all Man aka Humans that oppose the truth God Yahweh and Jesus Crhist.

Yes! They have been hiding the name of God, cause the name of God is the truth they key to everything ( Knowledge )
