I’ve been researching the primordial stories of Genesis and it’s pretty funny how these first 12 chapters of Genesis reflect other pagan stories in many aspects. Genesis 1’s 7 days = Sumerian’s 7 tablet creation story in the Enuma Elish. The flood = other flood story. Plus many other stories. I also tend to believe in Aliens and I see no reason why the would deny alien life (regardless of the theory that Aliens are demons which I find unconvincing). Many pagan stories especially from Sumeria and Egypt seem to indicate that these gods were alien in origin and that in Genesis 6, the sons of God would be aliens, just speculation. I guess my question is, is it reasonable to believe in the Ancient Alien theory as a Christian? Believing that Ancient Aliens contacted ancient Sumeria and Egypt as well as the pagan stories to somewhat be credible? (as in, the gods [Aliens] were at war in the heavens [space] and during that war, blew up a planet, causing the astroid belt as well as causing a planet to collide with earth, forming the moon and causing pangea). I’ve read many reports of the sumerians gaining rich knowledge of many things that modern humans today didn’t know until the past couple centuries. Whether or not its true, my question still stands. Would that be offensive to God or “unbiblical”?
The thing is, I dont believe it would necessarily affect much of the Bible as the Bible is the History of the true God interacting with humans and Him teaching us. My question doesnt deal with aliens creating humans or creating the universe or whatever as I know God created everything. But I do think the Ancient Alien theory could be compatible with a Christian worldview if we can get passed the implications of intelligent alien life, such as “do they jave redemption and salvation from God?” Or are did they Fall like we did?
