It seems every Christian I've spoken to snubs the mere thought of aliens from other solar systems.
1. outside, or originating outside, the limits of the earth.
God (Bible God), by definition, is an extraterrestrial. So, if one believes in God, one not only believes in aliens, but that God is one too.
We are told God and his angels abide somewhere "above", or somewhere "in the heavens", or somewhere vague called "Heaven". Naturally, we've yet to
confirm a physical realm called "Heaven", but what we do know is above, and all around, is space. So, if one believes in God and his angels, one must
believe in aliens from outer space.
How is it logical for someone who believes in the Bible God to not even consider the possibility of flesh and blood (like ourselves) aliens from a
physical realm (like the one we know) somewhere out there?
I've watched the Ancient Aliens documentaries and while the program has veered off course in a peculiar obsession to attach every myth and uncertainty
to aliens, I still feel the main premise of the theory offers a more compelling argument for historic events than the Bible does -- both arguments
have their flaws, for example there is a lack of concrete, physical evidence of alien visitation (unless you wanna count the pyramids...), but the
same could be said about events in the Bible.
I feel that the Ancient Astronaut Theory has the edge in that an unobserved invisible realm with invisible beings doesn't need to exist for its aliens
to be accepted, whereas the Bible needs a "Heaven" for its aliens to exist. So, is it not logical to replace God with aliens from outer space right
about now? That is, if we're going to persist in believing in aliens from outer place interfered in our past.
By the way, this goes without saying (but I'm going to say it anyway), not all Christians are contradictory in their beliefs, as I'm sure there are
quite a few who are more open-minded, and it hasn't been my intention to bash anyone.
