Virtually all religions, even Christianity, have their roots in "star people" coming here and walking among man...in Greek mythos the Gods actually mated with man and the Bible alludes to that. Also, the angels could easily be envisioned as E.T.s. The Bible also has many quotations where god refers to himself in the plural form. We made man in our image and such as that.
There are MANY history books that give us a glimpse of our history as a species.
What I find disheartening is how people will hold their belief so close to their heart they begin to judge and hate on others who do not hold that belief.
How can one's belief be so hardened to the point of fighting over the love of the belief. Instead people could show love and compassion no matter what the other believes. Its too bad a belief for love does not over power a belief of judgement.
The only thing is, in the case of the Bible, Christianity began years after the supposed death of Jesus (if he ever actually existed, we don't know yet) and for a few centuries, was passed through oral word of mouth stuff.
When writing in Europe started to become prevalent, many origin stories from previous cultures (such as Greeks, Romans, Egyptians etc) were used to create the Old Testament. Just reworded.
The New Testament was the same but focused on the characters of Greek myths with the name changed to Jesus and then to finish it off, the anti-Roman (some would call anarchist) propaganda of a rebellious man in exile using a coded call to arms against the empire but the ambiguity of the writings were enough to throw the leaders off the scent. This would come to be known as "Revelations".
In the beginning was the WORD, and the word was with God, and the WORD was God.
Sanctify them through thy truth: THY WORD is truth.
"11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. "
