No. Because it doesnt take half a brain to work out the problems with christianity. The alien thing isnt really much more likely its just a possible explanation which seems to make more sense.
I stopped believing in god before i stopped believing in santa and the tooth fairy.
Oh randy when will you learn to open your mind.....
Please explain how it is more likely. Your tone puts me off when you claim to speak of being open minded and yet you decry the Christian faith without any validation just a meager 'know-it-all' self-righteous attitude.
I would like a statistical analysis which provides verifiable sources which support your thesis.
Did you miss the info I presented earlier which supported the mind over matter fact of reality. Quantum physics has proven that focusing on an interaction affects its outcome and the effect increases the more focus is applied (see earlier link to sciencedaily article from nature).
I suggest a text entitled Secret History of the World.
The Secret History of the World: As Laid Down by the Secret Societies
They say that history is written by the victors. But what if history-or what we have come to know as history-has all along been written by the wrong people? What if everything we've been told is only part of the story? What if it's the wrong part? In this groundbreaking new work, Mark Booth embarks on an enthralling intellectual tour of our world's secret histories. Starting from a dangerous premise-that everything we've been taught about our world's past is corrupted, and that the stories put forward by the various cults and mystery schools throughout history are true-Booth produces nothing short of an alternate history of the past 3,000 years.
History is more than a list of things that have happened; it's a measure of consciousness and experience. And in The Secret History of the World, Booth's take on history is relentless, charging through time and space and thought in interdisciplinary fashion; embracing cognitive science, religion, psychology, historiography, and philosophy, a new timeline is drawn, and a huge swath of our cultural heritage that has long been hidden is restored.
From Greek and Egyptian mythology to Jewish folklore, from Christian cults to Freemasons, from Charlemagne to Don Quixote, from George Washington to Hitler-Booth shows without a doubt that history as we know it needs a revolutionary rethink, and he has 3,000 years of hidden wisdom to back it up.
I would also direct you to the writing of Carl Jung.
Carl Gustav Jung (/ˈjʊŋ/ YUUNG; German: [ˈkarl ˈɡʊstaf ˈjʊŋ]; 26 July 1875 – 6 June 1961) was a Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist who founded analytical psychology. Jung proposed and developed the concepts of the extraverted and the introverted personality, archetypes, and the collective unconscious. His work has been influential in psychiatry and in the study of religion, literature, and related fields.
Individuation is the central concept of analytical psychology. Jung considered individuation, the psychological process of integrating the opposites, including the conscious with the unconscious while still maintaining their relative autonomy, to be the central process of human development.
Jung created some of the best known psychological concepts, including the archetype, the collective unconscious, the complex, and synchronicity. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a popular psychometric instruments has been developed from Jung's theories.
Jung saw the human psyche as "by nature religious", and made this religiousness the focus of his explorations. Jung is one of the best known contemporary contributors to dream analysis and symbolization.
Though he was a practicing clinician and considered himself to be a scientist, much of his life's work was spent exploring tangential areas, including Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, and sociology, as well as literature and the arts. His interest in philosophy and the occult led many to view him as a mystic.
Also for your discounting the concept of God and having created the world with a single word I would direct you toward cymatics.
Cymatics - Bringing Matter To Life With Sound
These concepts tend to be unsettling to the materially focused.
This one is very interesting if you investigate the symbolism of the occult;
Cymatics Experiment Mozart "Una Donna a Quindici Anni"
Did you know Mozart was a member of a secret society?
