Now, if we can forget about the tv program where funny looking people are calling everything that we do not understand `aliens` or `help from aliens` etc. And look at the facts.
You, or the vast majority of humanity, have since the begining of time believed in a `god` based on somebody else`s word or account. Or, in recent-ish times, the big bang.
Neither of these make much sense and require VERY open minds. Ie what formed the conditions for the big bang in the first place and how likely is it that all this around us `just so happened` to form from the big bang. All this nature formed from a few cells, and just so happened to form the way we see the universe and people and animals and life around us? how much of a coincidence is that.
At the same time, the whole religion thing, following the written words of somebody from thousands of years, from a book which we know was passed down orally for hundreds of years, and then written and re-written possibly a few hundred times until now. To say that somewhere along the line people may manipulate or add in their own little twist to the bible, is a bit of an understatement.
Anyway to cut to the chase this is not an arguement about religion, heck i have no issue with people believe in a god. The point is that the two big mainstream beliefs (religions, and the scientific belief of big bang), both themselves require a VERY open mind if you are going to use them as the be all and end all of why we are here.
So, how is it so hard in peoples minds to believe that we were put here by people just like us, millions of years ago.. people who are beings just like us but far far more advanced, who created us in their image. Does it make them the `gods of the world`? certainly not.. does it make them our creators? yes, but gods of everything no?
Let me give you an example.. if we clone a sheep, then we can pat ourseleves on the back and say we created a sheep but... does that make us gods? of course not. Same thing.
There is a very strong and obvious suggestion that whoever is running this dance that we call our reality... is no more a `god` than you and i.
Let `us ` create man in `our` image
`And the sons of god mated the daughters of earth` (why would gods or the sons of gods need sex)
`I am the only god no other` .. sounds rather spiteful and jelous no?
`Believe in me or die`... I mean come on, why would a `creator of all` be so bothered if his creations believe in him.
Another point is that in the jewish bible and scriptures.. god never appears to moses in his form, he always appears through fire. Is he really afraid to show himself? I think the obvious answer is `god` looks no different to me and you!!!
Moving back on track, how does it not make sense that we were created by advanced beings, but because our technology was so far behind, that these beings appeared like magicians and gods. I mean go back in time a couple of hundred years show them your technology that we have even today, and they will probably faint in awe. It is the same thing.
Does this answer the question of who is the god of the universe or purpose of life? of course not. Does it mean these ancient astronauts are the `god of all`? of course not. But we do know this, whoever created us has all the common characteristics, needs/ desires/ emotions, of you and i.
Yes, once again i know the ancient aliens documentary can be far too quick to prounounce everything and anything to be alien, yes i agree one of the guys has funny hair.. HOWEVER, us being created by advanced beings who come to earth every so often, makes far more sense and answers far more questions than believing in a scripture that has been re-written countless times, or in a scientific theory which is full of flaws.
Now, we get to the `where is the evidence part`. Simple................ they do not leave evidence because they do NOT WANT us knowing this, and this is why they have given us only a fraction of our brain power to use, and remove all their technology and most of the traces of their time here.
This is the reason why whenever the `chosen one` speaks to god.. god never shows his face.
This is a raw write out of my thread i will have a bash probably add more in later.
Thanks for reading
