I'm just wondering what you guy's feelings on this is. The basic idea is that the gods of ancient mythology, and many of the angels in Christian theology were aliens that were misunderstood by our ancestors.

I think it's an interesting idea, I doubt that it's true. It wouldn't make sense for them to cease living as gods if they were at one time, but many of the theory supporters say they're around still watching us.

I guess I find the theory interesting in the same way that I find a lot of fiction interesting. I don't take it completely serious, but it's a pretty cool idea.

Yes it is. It would certainly make all the religious people go "Well shit, we were right. In a way. Sort of suck it, athiests!"

Refer to Halo for a "God is an astronaut" theory turned into a game.

Apparently so, that's the problem I have with it. I mean, they say the UFO sitings are them observing us, but if these aliens would pretend to be gods, they clearly have huge egos, so if they're that egotistical, why wouldn't they continue ruling over us lowly humans?

Apparently, that means according to a programme call Ancient Aliens on the History channel, there are old paintings with flying saucers on them. Also there have been UFOs sightings for millenia which were attributed to being possible alien encounters.

They don't fancy themselves gods, supposedly that's just how we interpreted them.



Fun to think about

^Humans aren't forerunners, they were just chosen by them (and they could have evolved along similar lines).

That's what I'm watching now. I've seen it a ton of times before, but there was really nothing else on. See those paintings could be anything though, even stars that were just painted really badly, or maybe the artist was just drunk and wanted to paint something weird on his canvas.

It's strange, I've always had this feeling like I was being watched, like everything that happened..Happened by some intervention of sorts. Who knows from what, could just be random luck for good things.

Yeah in a sense, thats what I can relate the idea to. But there is no possible way to really prove that. There's that whole "God created us in his image" snippet from the bible, so maybe we were all created by aliens that looked like us A bit of a whimsical idea, but its fun to think about.

It really seems unlikely honestly. The chance that an alien life form would even be remotely similar to any creatures on this planet is rather low. I also doubt they would pretend to be gods. They would probably have no idea about the concept of "gods."

We always assume that aliens would be like us in some way. Perhaps in the way they see the universe or the way they understand things. I feel like this is actually rather unlikely. So the chance that we would understand an alien species, or that they would understand us is rather low. So they probably wouldn't pretend to be gods, because they wouldn't understand what gods were.

I think it's much more plausible than "God" as every religion sees him.

I don't know, I'm sure the concept of a god isn't that hard to come by, I mean it's unlikely they'd say god, but I would think any intelligent being would ask how I got here, and try to explain the world to themselves, and that's really where the idea of a god came from.

If they have the technology to reach us, then I doubt they'd believe in something that couldn't be observed.

You assume they think the same way we do though. They might not. They might have an entirely different view of the universe than us. What if they exist in more than 3 dimensions? Perhaps they are 4 dimensional, and we can only see part of them.

Just because they know of something doesn't mean they believe in it. Also, just because there are smarter sects of a society doesn't mean there wouldn't be people who still follow faith. I guarantee you that if we develop Warp Drives (which they are being developed) there will still be religious groups. Religion is politically convenient, and it will never go away.

Well right, one of the points tayroar is making is that we project the idea of them having Godhood onto them, not the other way around.

At most, they probably dropped some knowledge off and left.

There's an excellent History Channel documentary on this, it brought up some good points, and some things that are hard to explain by "earthly" means. The main book in this theory is called Chariot of the Gods.

Such as i remember them saying that theres some place in South America that has massive slabs, cut so percisely that today we would have to user lasers, and that how could anything but massive machinery put these giant slabs in place. I guess its way mmore impressive than the Pyramids of Giza they said (which is a whole other mystery too). The only thing that could have cut these rocks back then would have been diamonds, which were thousands of miles away.

There were also some nifty facts/calculations in it about the Pyramids of Giza. That they are the exact center of the Earth, they are facing exactly at north south east and west corresponding to the globe, and the god it was built after's name has same with someone in the bible who rode a burning chariot to the heavens and whose name translates to extraterrestrial. The calculation they said that made me scratch my head was if evidence says they were built in 20 years then each rock would have had an average of 9 seconds to cut and place.

It was an interesting documentary, don't quote me on accuracy of those last paragraphs tho, those r just similar things i remember them saying.

I totally forgot about all of that.

Yeah the pyramids are something else. Also that rock quarry in South America had me scratching my head as well. Back in our older days, humans got a lot more shit moved around but I doubt they did all that easily.

That really does put the story of Abraham in a new light though.

Yahweh the alien:"Guys, he thinks I created the universe...what do I say?"
Yahweh's asshole friend:"Damn, man, you gotta mess with him."
Yahweh:"Urm what? I'm not sure I'm comfortable-"
Friend:"Tell him to kill his son."
Yahweh:"What?! That's horrible!"
Friend:"No man, you can have him stop or something, but you should see if he'd actually do it."

If the ancient astronaut theory is correct, then we can be sure that they didn't want us to know they were here because they left no real tangible evidence, and if some people do suspect that they did exist, that means a race with technology far beyond anything we can even imagine couldn't even manage to cover its track properly, and that seems unlikely.

Not if they're wildly different from us...

These aliens might not be able to talk. They might have other forms of communication (changing colors, touch, etc). They might be able to communicate through smell or taste. Hell, they could have senses that are completely different than sight, touch, taste, smell, or hearing. They could have evolved other ways to perceive the world. All our senses really are are ways to interpret different stimuli and understand our environment. They could have wildly different culture.. They might not even have what we call culture. They could be different from us in every single way possible. We might not even be able to tell that they're alive. They could look like rocks, but have some kind of ability to influence the landscape around them to construct cities.

They could look like this:

I disagree with aliens being vastly different from us. I'd think that any planet with life and enough light would eventually evolve a life form with some sort of eye. That's assuming they're even made of the same shit as we are, and if we're not i assume they're not worth talking to. It's like some guy whose name i forget said. "If a lion could speak english, you couldn't understand him"

Yeah I was always curious about some sort of explanation for those ancient hieroglyphs of spaceships and space men; whether they are real, modern forgeries, or just really crappy carvings and such. Then there are all these unexplained and mysterious artifacts such as the Dropa Stones of the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains, the Coso Artifact, those grooved spheres in South Africa, The Antikythera mechanism, the Voynich Manuscript, the oddly shaped skulls of the Starchild Project, and the list goes on and on with plenty of strange artifacts where the manufacturing technology does not match up with the time in which they are believed to have come from. On top of this, a lot of these artifacts seem to go missing suddenly after being brought into the public eye.

It suggests all sorts of different theories of ancient unknown civilizations, highly intelligent beings predating early human life, cover-ups from the government, scientific communities, and religious communities. But with such a thick veil of Maya, its hard to come to any solid conclusion and thus it is best to wait until more dust has lifted on the subject, or perhaps you may even do some of the digging yourself?

And us foreign to them. I'm assuming that our ancient astronauts would have atleast been biological.

EDIT:You've really got me thinking about this.

Any being from an earth like planets has got to be pretty similar to us, surely. They eye has evolved independently several times here on planet earth and i feel a dolphin has more in common with a fish(aesthetically at least) despite being more closely related to me... This tells me that there is a specific best design that'd eventually occour in any given environment.

So yeah, i should think there are similar aliens out there, that'd probably seek out other organisms similar to their own.
