i don't follow the logic. if humankind on this planet was seeded by off planet beings, that makes them our parents. that makes sense. worshipping them does not. they are family. we don't worship our parents. "creator" is different from "parent."

when humankind stops being so barbaric then these more evolved, more advanced beings from other dimensions will present themselves. they are humanoid like we are, just more advanced.

groups where people come together to celebrate and love the Creator will always exist.

as humanity evolves to become more compassionate, more peaceful, and more attuned to the loving God that made us all, religions will become more accepting of each other. They will still exist but will no longer claim to be the "only" way to love and celebrate the Creator. Some religions already have this in place. The wisdom of this will be seen and will be picked up and practiced by other religions. Everyone has access to God regardless of the path they take.

First we have to stop pretending like everyone is created equal in this respect. There is a very specific group of people on this planet who are barbaric, and they happen to be a global minority. I don't think this planet is their native home. There was peace here before a certain element arrived by whatever means they did. THOSE are the people who need to and will be dealt with.

if humankind on this planet was seeded by beings from elsewhere, then there are no humans native to this planet. As the indigenous people across the planet recognize, we came from the stars.

all of us.

I understand where you're coming from but I'm not sure I agree. There are entities here who actively seek to destroy the planet and the life-giving beings upon it. They go around from place to place sucking up resources that do not belong to them. I'd argue that if your mission appears to be to destroy everything in your path, and destroy the things that promote life on this planet...well, you're some other kind of being.

Just because they created us, doesnt mean, we are related to them in some way.


We have NO idea of their technological abilities, we may be nothing like them at all.

I believe thats what the Sumerians claimed too (and they were the first!)


This does seem possible, of all the different life on the planet...Man seems to be the only species that is not in harmony with his environment, 'man' is more like a virus on the planet than anything else, so who knows?

You just make yourself and your religion look absurd when you just do denialist bashing like this.
