So a first contact occurs.  The government can't/won't hide it and we see our first real ETs.  They tell us that they planted us here very long ago and that they are our "god".  They have technology we cannot imagine.  Do you believe their story?

I've often felt we are here because of alien genetic engineering.  So I might believe them if they had any kind of credible proof.

their fake evidence would be better than our real evidence,  just something to think about.

"...for many false prophets have gone out into the world..." and all that

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Yep...we are even warned that a great deception would fool most in the last days.  I can't think of one that would be more universally accepted - can you?

I don't care, if they could prove it it just means with all their technology they're archaic to fuel such primitive concepts.

I guess a more interesting question is, what if they are god, what if you could go back in time and see the ETs giving commands to Moses or genetically engineering the first humans.

    Believing in something doesn't make it true.

If an extraterrestrial proclaimed they were god, after I stopped laughing I would ask them who created them.  :alien: :yes: :alien:

I don't know if I'd believe it right away, I need some evidence.

However,  do have some thoughts.

First if something like that happened you know what I'd be suspicious of? Them claiming to be god. If they came and said they set life in motion on this world through silence that sounds plausible, but if they claim the title of god that just seems like an attempt to manipulate and control. (Not that's much different from the god of certain religions.)

Second, I wouldn't dismiss the claims out of hand. Why? Because it's not beyond the realm of possibility. You can claim that such technology is impossible but 100 years so were many things we take for granted (the internet, mobile phones, planes, artifical insemination etc).

Third, of course just because a race has such impressive technology doesn't mean they did what they claim (how many civilisations and tribes on earth have thought others were godlike for having technology?). If such a race did make that claim we'd have to be very careful how we handled it.

However, you know what would be important? Checking religious beliefs at the door. Why? I think you demonstarated it perfectly in this quote:

Essentially you'd go 'la la la not listening'. Unfortunately that seems to be a common stance when religious belief faces other forms of evidence but just think of the consequences of such a stance here.

You'd have an alien race with impressive technology and it wouldn't take much for trouble to start if religious people just went 'those are false prophets!' We know people kill already for religious beliefs, it wouldn't take much for some religious moron with that stance to decide 'yeah I'm gonna kill them too, they're false prophets sent by the devil'. It doesn't take much to screw things up for the rest of us and, I'm sorry, but religous people seem to be extremely good at doing just that.

Best case scenario the aliens would go and we'd lose any benefits they may have been willing to share with us. Worst case we'd have a firefight that we'd have no chance of winning all because religious people couldn't resist causing trouble.

The sad thing is I can honestly see that happen. And not just if aliens made such claims, they'd likely do it for any such claim because it would challenge the notion of humans being special.

Beings who would take the time to breed humans have a motive. Kind of scary, really.  Anybody watch Star Gate.
