    Re: God: Extraterrestrial or Spirit

    Umm...interesting rant about Satanism at the end...not sure where that came from...

    You do realize that the reason Christians follow Jesus is because he said he is the only way of connecting with God and getting to Heaven. If you're a believer, you know that the only way to get to God is through Jesus, he's like the bouncer to Club Heaven, if you will, lol.

    You're talking about the Crusades, and you're getting bitter about people who used religion to recruit people to their cause. Just because people do sinful things like justify murder and war in the name of God, doesn't mean that their religion or God truly backs their cause.

    Prayer is more than just begging God to actually talk to you, or just magically make your life or a friend's, or a family member's better. There can be blessings in disguise, light in tragedy. You have to be able to percieve those blessings, not just be beaten by the bad.

    I'll admit, I haven't read the Bible, so show me your proof, where in the Bible specifically was there descriptions that mirrored that of UFO sightings? You're set on the idea, so I'll humor you.

    If we're talking about the Supreme of the Supreme G-O-D, who's to say He, She, or It isn't the universe itself and everything isn't a part of the "God" as a whole?

    Since the earth was created by God he definitely originated from outside the earth.

    If you are going to mix science and religion lets do it logically.
    Thank you Arriana. :] While I had started to read this thread I was thinking the same thing. You covered it for meh.

My main point against your original thesis is that even if there was a super-evolved alien race that is greater than us, my contention was that they did not create the universe, therefore are below God. To place any race above God is pointless, even if an alien race fathered us, that race had to come from somewhere; God.
    We are made in God's image according to the Bible.


    Genesis Chapter 1: 26-27
    26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

    27 So God created man in his own image,
    in the image of God he created him;
    male and female he created them.
    Whether you believe it or not, there is your proof.

I don't care about the science of things, because when it comes down to it, us as humans know nothing at all. That's simple, you all can sit there and say your religions are right, but the fact is, if your religions is so right, why is it your religions are the reason and have been the reason for so much blood shed and everything God doesn't want from us to happen happening. The way I see it is theres a huge possibility of OUR creator isn't the God, but simply a being who wants us to consider it God.

    The funniest part of religion these days is the fact that people lost faith in the true God and everyone depends on Christ. Hell most refer to Christ as God. Oh and there is a strong possibility that Christ was a starchild and that Christ could have been ressurected and brung up. If you read the bible and actually pay attention and instead of just reading words, you'd realize the fact that a lot of the bible description of things in the sky all resemble the description we have today of UFO's. If you truley sit here and say that's not true then that shows the ignorance of man and yourself. If you choose to believe that we are the only beings to exist and to only exist then you are showing ignorance and undermining the true form of the True God. Honestly I want this post closed because the ignorance in religion alone is pissing me off to the point that I already have an army of men and woman who are willing to make a trip to the vatican just to kill the pope and take all the books of the bible that they are holding back from the religious retards who refuse to see truth instead of what they were TOLD is true. If you really sit there and say that you don't believe everything everyone tells you, your the same person who believes everything that the church tells you, The same people who say that they are closer to God then you because they are preaching the book. Let e ask you religious goons about something. How often do you wish God would intervene with the worlds evil and wickedness and actually see a "miracle" that stops it? Why is it impossible to overcome evil in this world. If you are truley religious, answer my questions and let me know something about God that you may think you actually know. ****ing retards don't know God, hell it hasn't even revealed itself to us in story. All we get is what God made for us and the story of what man writes down. Where is the literal text of God, where is the literal Word of God?

    Don't get me wrong, I truley and whole heartedly believe in God and Christ, but I don't believe in these satanic religions you choose to say is holier then the rest.

    If this upsets you oh ****ing well, deal with it. Just realize that I'm not being a satast, in fact I would love to kill a couple myself, but supposedly God condemns murder, even if it is against someone who loves satan. hmmm. religions just can't get it right huh?
    Have you read your Bible lately?
    Not to be rude, but you are telling others to pick it up and read because they are so ignorant. You just now in that post made yourself look more ignorant than anyone else in this thread.

    Maybe I'm getting it wrong, maybe you believe there is a higher power and not the God that you see listed in the Bible?

    Christ is God. God is Christ. Jesus Christ was God sent down in the form of a human. He was sinless. Before Jesus, people had to sacrifice animals to atone for every time they sinned. He came down so that we didn't have to offer animals. God sacrificed himself because He is perfect.
    How can you say that you believe God so BOLDLY and then turn around and tell everyone you don't believe that prayer and miracle's are real?

    Prayer is talking to God. You might as well call it chatting with God. Prayer isn't about closing your eyes and saying typical non heart felt words to a God you think might be there.
    Praying is something one does at any given moment, be it out loud or in there head. Just because you ask God to get you out of the muck or someone else, doesn't mean some insane miracle is going to happen 2 seconds later EVERY time. Miracle's sometimes take perseverance.

    I hope maybe you do some solid research on what you decide to believe in before you just up and make claims. :] Please read the bible, and don't talk about murder in the same paragraph as our God.

    It's good to be back.

    Thanks Pyroo. :]

    "Genesis Chapter 1: 26-27
    26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

    27 So God created man in his own image,
    in the image of God he created him;
    male and female he created them. "

    I don't see a how or a how long, and I certainly don't see where the bible says we were made from nothing in your citation. That's where I believe evolution fills in the blanks. Read my statement you quoted again,

    "...I rather think humans evolved from primates, and have developed a sense of self-awareness, hence we finally have become part of 'God's image'."

    I know what the bible said about the creation of man, so allow me to clarify; I don't believe that God simply said, "ok time to make mankind," and bam, there were adam and eve. I don't believe that God created our universe in 7 Earth days, I believe all the stuff talked about in the bible happened over a long period of time when we're comparing it to time from a human's perspective. I do believe that God's behind the creation of the universe and set into motion phenomena like evolution in order to create the universe we know.

    Furthermore I believe human intelligence came naturally, not from some supernatural 'aliens.' Which has been my song and dance since the start of this discussion. We're not exactly in major disagreement here.

    Re: God: Extraterrestrial or Spirit

    sad thing is everyone base their opinion and view of god from a book written by man and editted by man. Sadder is the fact that not one of you can whole heartedly say that the bible is full truth. Why is that? Maybe for the fact that your religious leaders are the ones holding back books and gospels from the bible because they don't seem magicy enough for them. It's not supernatural so it's not in the bible we see today. How can anyone who reads the bible say that it's truth if they don't have the whole story? There are thousands of books to the bible that not one person has seen besides the bullshit vatican. The evil empire lol. The saddest thing is the fact that no one actually takes into account the people who were here before the ****ing bible was even written. In clay tablets and other writing equipment there are stories of the truth of the bible and the truth of our creation. But we ignore them. Why is that? Can't except the truth? Or maybe the fact that no one actually wants the truth but what they want to hear. such as you pathetic excuses for earthlings. Anu, Marduk, Inshaar, Tiamet, and Ishtarr are coming back. And their not happy with our ignorance. Oh and Christ by the way. Is Marduk. I would suggest for people to listen to me, but sadly not one of you imbasiles would believe anything that's beside what your mommies and daddies and teachers and ****ing preachers told you. But that's ok. Truth is on the way. I just hope that you guys accept it. Or it just may be the last time you breath. This is my last posting on this site. I don't think I can stand to read anymore of your pathetic inexcusable crap anymore. Oh and by the way. God is nothing more then matter!!!

    Re: God: Extraterrestrial or Spirit

    God is everything and anything he wants. As he's mentioned in the bible as 'spiritual father,' to answer your question, spirtual. But seriously - if God really wanted us to know exactly who he is, we wouldn't be asking these questions. To take a page from children's literature - 'Curiosity killed the cat'
    I'm just happy with every day I have with Him - here, and someday in Heaven.
    life is like a road - when take a detour into the woods, it's not only more fun, but more dangerous...

    Because decrying those who read records written by men just to support instead older records also written by men which are even more likely to have been changed, evolved over time, or simply lost information in general makes perfect sense? Like every pantheon in history the Assyro-Babylonian gods you mention are no more then the political merging of multiple beliefs into a new whole with whichever followers that had the greatest political power elevating their personal deity into control.

    Many of us are well aware of other records and even study them. A better use of our time then getting angry with those who do not agree with us.

    Best of luck where ever you go.
