Its possible, but i have no proof yet, that someone, or something, "external" to me is influencing the way i think. Its possible "someone" is "giving" me this information. But i have no proof of this. Its just a feeling. I feel like i am be influenced by someone that i cannot see. Someone is "guiding me" to find the right answers as i do the research. Its either that, or i'm very very clever. And i think i'm pretty average intelligence.


Yes, that something is called confirmation bias. You've researched what you want to know by making the data fit your conclusions.

Based upon your preachings and your assertions, I see little difference between you and Harold Camping, other than you've thrown in a bit of alien conspiracy too.

Comon Ozzfan,
I'm trying to spice up the story to keep you guys interested!

Hmm.......
It seems that God made my soul conform to what His bible said.
Or, was it the other way around, as some of you ponder?
I think it was my soul that found it's way, not the Good Book.

It was always there for my perusal.

I guess I just always found enough references on the net from folks dissing it that I never had to pick up a hard copy.
God understands that. Moses understood that. Mel Brooks sure as hell understood it, and that's why his bit was such a hoot.
Even the avowed Godless Carlin knew about the commandments......
George's list......He whittled it down to two, plus an amendment.

And if in fact you forgot Mel's take...........
YES, I hear you, a deaf man could hear you........

The cosmos is very big and space is very empty, so the probability of making contact with an ET is very remote. Isn't it..........

Then there is the question of who made who that I WILL always come back to. The First Mover had to have made the Universe. Since it would appear that we are the only ones who occupy this verse who made us?

Life is also not by chance. Prove it and I'll eat that tinfoil hat.

Prove multiverses and I'll eat that tinfoil hat.

Again, you lack an understanding of the scientific process. There must be evidence of this 'Mover' before we can attribute life to it. Until then, chance is the only explanation that doesn't require belief in a hypothesis without evidence. And again, you've already provided the odds that however remote, there is a chance that it can happen.

I done it already Chris :)

Back in the early 1990's, i made my first trip to London. On my first night in a city i wasn't familiar with, me and my mate went to the pub to meet other friends that we were supposed to stay with. Well the other friends never turned up so me and my mate went out drinking and night-clubbing anyway. We ended up with two Spanish girls and we had no choice but to sleep rough near Hyde Park Corner. So i did some preaching with the Spanish girl, but we weren't discussing God :)

You spoke Spanish?


Something tells me you might have been speaking a little French.
I have been known to be a bit bilingual myself at times.

Surely the word is "speak" rather than "spoke"?

So anyway guys,
If ET really did give us all the stories in the bible, would you start reading the bible and studying it?

Was God and ET?

I've already read the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. In fact, I still have my copy. What makes you think that none of us have actually read the Bible in the first place?

And the answer is, if ET wrote the Bible, I would be disheartened by the state of the Universe and the lack of intelligent out there.

The Bible is loaded with contradictions, changes, forgeries, and misinformation. I strongly suggest some of Bart D. Ehrman's books. He is a biblical scholar, and spent his life learning ancient Greek, Aramic, and pouring over the oldest remnants of documents.

A very good book to start with is,
Misquoting Jesus
