Could god/s be our perception of ancient alien visitation?

Some of these theories propose that deities from most religions are actually extraterrestrials, and their technologies were taken as evidence of their divine status.

If the oral and literal traditions of most religions contain references to visitors from stars and vehicles travelling through air and space. These, he says, should be interpreted as literal descriptions which have changed during the passage of time and become more obscure.
Ex: Ezekiel in OT, he gives a detailed description of a landing spacecraft with angels in the likeness of man - Book of Enoch tells of similar flying objects and beings called "the Watchers" who have mutinied from "heaven" and descended to earth, but goes further in that Enoch is taken on journeys to various corners of the Earth in the object and at one point even travels to the heavens. etc

Thoughts? Were ancient people visited and create religions to explain it? Possible?

  • way too darn complicated explanation to prove the non existences of something you don't think exist.

  • i wasn't aware god really does exist?
    and Yes I think so. It's crazy that they find ancient drawings that look like flying saucers and how there are crazy buildings that don't make sense..how they made them doesn't make sense. it's nuts!

  • Very possible. My dh is a history extremist, and he believes so. I don't see it being to far fetched.

  • Give you real proof of what? Billions of galaxies?

    And yes I'm sorry it is MY OPINION that believing out of the BILLIONS UPON BILLIONS of plants in those galaxies that we in this one dinky solar system are the only life forms at all.

    I don't suppose you believe that Stephen Hawking is a genius do you?
    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/science/space/article7107207.ece
    Alien life, he will suggest, is almost certain to exist in many other parts of the universe: not just in planets, but perhaps in the centre of stars or even floating in interplanetary space.

    Hawking’s logic on aliens is, for him, unusually simple. The universe, he points out, has 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of millions of stars. In such a big place, Earth is unlikely to be the only planet where life has evolved.
    “To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational,” he said.
