    Yes, if their story matched what I already believe, that would certainly be universal confirmation of the truth.. It would just be beyond coincidence that someone from another world would have received the same revelation that was already known on earth. If Christ were just a man or a myth, there's no way his gospel could have transcended the universe.

    To be clear; if these aliens had a story, about how their god created the Universe, you would take that as validating Christianity? That seems to be what you said. I'm trying to be fair. If that's not what you meant, please clarify.

    No, just that they delivered the same creation story, that God created the universe and everything in it. And no, I wasn't being too serious since we are talking about imaginary aliens. You've heard enough out of me to know the answer to that...... Of course not.

    Now G/god could have created Gort & Klakpu as the original sinners on their planet but it would be hard to figure how Jesus could come into the story for them to be Christians.

    Seriously? You think the aliens would be descended from Adam and Eve? That is the only way they would need redemption from Original Sin. A hard sell, if they aren't Human. Suppose their religion does offer a way, to come into fellowship with God. Their God. Not yours. Would you sign up? Are you ready to tell alien missionaries, that they need to be saved by Christ?

    What if the alien visitors turned out to be Christians and their message was Christ...... That would probably be the evidence ya'll have been looking for. An unbiased universal message could not be a coincident, especially if it matched what we've been hearing on earth for +2000 years. No religion and nothing to join, just the simple story of creation and the gospel of salvation.

    I would enjoy, beyond words, hearing what ever it is, that the missionary from the stars has to say. Whether I would join up is not the point. I would love to hear the message. You know. Open mind.

    I don't know the quote that you're thinking of. Motel Six says that they will "leave the light on for you".

    Didn't Jimmy Hoffa leave a light on? Or maybe I got the quote wrong.

    It's too late to hide. Our TV and radio signals can not be confused with anything natural. Neither can the light given off by our cities. The pollution in our air is also not natural.

    Give them a few years and they will all be Jehova's Witnesses. What we must be concerned with is if they really know we are home and just not answering the door.

    If they can cross Interstella space, they have tech. Everything else is speculation.

    Why should one believe that alien life is more advanced than we are? Perhaps they are all as screwed up as we are and kill each other off before any true potential can be realized.
  19. Jonathan H. B. Lobl

    value of religion

    Advanced technology might indicate intelligence. It has nothing to do with sanity. If they're missionaries, they could be total loons. About half a year ago, a Christian missionary tried bringing Christ to an isolated, xenophobic tribe; off the coast of Brazil. They kill all outsiders, so the island is forbidden. When the missionary got close enough, the tribe killed him with an arrow. Alien visitors to Earth would have tech. They would have intelligence. Sanity? Judgment? It's an open question.

    not really. if there is an advanced beings(aliens),wouldn't they be smart enough to avoid the planet?

    I did a whole thought piece, on Earth religion, and what it might have to offer an alien. Isn't anything else worth mentioning?

    Hmkay, will have to search that one... But it is the same reverence; in "V" the humans "served" the aliens too...
