The Alien - Angel Topic Revisited
I've written about the alien-angel connection before and dedicated a whole post to the topic a while back.
As I stated previously, the phrase 'angel from heaven' translates to 'messenger from the sky'. But people have been questioning for a long time whether or not extraterrestrials could exist from a religious perspective.
Here is an article I came across today about it. But the topic isn't something new, people have been questioning the subject for years.
I guess I'm just really surprised that there is some much confusion about this. I mean, it just seems like such a non-issue! If an angel from heaven has come to earth from the sky, then technically, you could classify it as a type of extraterrestrial. This doesn't mean that the traditional concept of an angel is the only type of extraterrestrial life there is - there may very well be grays, reptillians, insectoids and other types of extraterrestrial life - but the point is, by definition of the phrase 'angel from heaven', angels themselves could very well be considered extraterrestrial. So the whole question as to whether extraterrestrials exist from a religious perspective is like questioning whether or not angels themselves exist. I suppose it's possible some angels could actually be terrestrial in origin, but if it's an angel that has specifically come from heaven, then technically, it's an extraterrestrial. I don't think it matters if it is made of flesh and blood or not, a lifeform is still a lifeform.
So why all the hoopla about whether or not extraterrestrials fit into God's universe? I guess it's somewhat understandable why some people might question from a religious perspective whether or not specific types of alleged ETs such as grays or reptilians exist, but I see no reason why anyone with a religious perspective should question whether or not extraterrestrials exist at all.
The whole debate just seems like a waste of time to me. It's like spending years trying to decide whether or not we should say the sky is blue, or say the sky appears to be blue.
