A new conspiracy theory says, before religious texts like the Bible were written, alien lifeforms visited Earth and were seen as “gods” by the more primitive humans.
In an article entitled “Aliens Are Coming Back To Retrieve ‘Their’ Religion,” the website ufointernationalproject.com tried to explain the theory.
It claims either aliens created the religious texts for the benefit of mankind, or they were written by humans based on the “alien gods” who visited at that time.
It went onto say much more advanced extraterrestrial species were angry that humans had used religions as a reason for waging countless wars across the globe over hundreds of years.
The article said: “Religion was not designed for terrorism
( Unfortunately the videos are not available)
“The aliens quite knew that man is so destructive in nature, that’s the more reason why Religion was bestowed to us, to serve with faith and fear of the unknown, but man has completely failed the experiment.”
It went on to list a series of wars carried out in the name of religion, including the bitter conflicts in the Middle East against Islamic State.
The unnamed author of the piece said: “I have studied all religions for over 20 years, and it has led me to nothing more than one vast conclusion.
“Man was not smart enough to write any of the religions, and I mean the eastern spiritualism (the self), western religions (God – which I always have referred to as the extraterrestrial) or American Creationism (Nature itself, including man).
“One of the oldest religious text ‘The Egyptian Book of the Dead’ dates back more than 3000 BC.
“When writing was invented and the scribes and artists first wrote down what the priests had used in their prayers and litanies, they were very perplexed and hardly understood the text.
“What I am getting at is that all religions were not composed by humans at the time they were created.
“These Aliens would truly be gods to us humans.
“Their civilisations could be millions of years old, they know exactly how this macrocosm works.
“They might have seen other worlds come and go, and destroy themselves.
“They know the evolutionary steps cognition has to go through, and that is the crucial point for the aliens, they want to protect our beautiful Universe from harm.
“After all, when you have become God, you don’t want to see your world being destroyed. And that brings us to the crux of religion.”
It went on to say that aliens would want their religions returned, and will quarantine us here on Earth to prevent any cosmic disasters.
It added: “Now be ready to give it back, since humans have no respect for life, ideas, other races and cultures.
“That brings me to my final point – with us humans pointing a cannon at anything different from ourselves, the aliens will not allow us to transverse the Universe.
“We have an idea of how the atom works, and if we ever develop spaceships using antigravity, they do not want us to explore space pointing a cannon at everything alien to us, especially since we failed to master our emotions.”
Alien conspiracy theorists have been saying for years that extraterrestrials have already visited Earth, and world leaders know this, but it is kept from us under an alleged “truth embargo” amid fears over the impact the truth would have on religion and the rule of law.
Several people are campaigning for the “embargo” to be lifted and the “disclosure” of all facts about aliens on Earth.
The article finished saying that the only thing that would stop wars on Earth was so-called disclosure.
It added: “Truly the only thing that can put a stop to the wars on earth both religious and others which have killed thousands of innocent people including children and animals, is only one thing – DISCLOSURE!”
Nigel Watson, author of The UFO Investigations Manual, told Express.co.uk: “These ideas are very much like those of the alleged alien contactees of the 1950s, who said they had meetings with space people and had rides in their flying saucers.
“Ironically, it is a bit like the view of some religious groups that say we should not venture into space because that is the domain of God.
“I don’t think we will be producing spacecraft capable of visiting nearby alien civilisations for a very long time, and it is still a matter of debate whether they will
welcome us or attack us.
“Certainly, Professor Stephen Hawking says we should be wary of making any type of contact with aliens.
“As for disclosure as a means of uniting humanity, I don’t think that will ever happen.”
