Some say that they are one and the same.
There are groups in which there are 'levels' that a person rises through. At each level you are told some esoteric 'secret'.

The top echelon is told that God is an alien.
Mormons, Scientologists, and Masons are among these groups.

Hope I'm making sense here.! Something somewhere was "uncaused." Now whether UFO's exist...whether there is life on other planets, I don't know, but if there is, I believe God created it.
You do notice that the God in the Old Testament has a lot of human qualities and frailties, like being jealous, killing enemies, etc?

How do you know what the "top echelon of Mormons" are told? Mormons certainly don't believe that God is an alien, and I'm stating that as someone who is definitely closer to being among the "top echelon of Mormons" than you are.

I think both are entirely possible. I can't really pick between the two.

I went through this with you on another thread.
I am sure that Scientologysts and Masons would make the same protest.

This is not the place to argue about religion.

On The History Channel, there was a show about aliens helping the Nazis in World War 11 . There was such sophisticated development of weapons , but then something must have gone awry , I guess because they lost the war.
