After reading this article, I started thinking about the Bible and how it says we were made in God’s image. And I started wondering, who is God. What if God was really some scientist in another world who was experimenting in creating life in a lab. Just like we do. What if all these thousands of years we’ve been worshiping a human, so to speak, not unlike ourselves. A living being who lives and dies. That would burst a lot of people’s bubble. After all, Jesus did say, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” (John 14:12 New International Version). So if we can do even greater things, we can potentially create life without a man and a woman having intercourse. After all, that’s how Jesus supposedly was made.
What if years from now, we humans have discovered that life is possible in another planet; but getting there is not exactly feasible. But what if we create lifeforms here, put it in a spaceship to land over there and let life begin there. Potentially since this life form is clueless, we would be assisting from here in feeding them and basically taking care of their needs for a while. Then those life forms, being primitive and what not would think that Earth is actually heaven, and we are angels with a supreme leader being God, their God.
Then of course, Earth being the “peaceful” place that it is, would have wars and dispute on who is to control this life in this other planet. And the God who made it all possible gets all pissy and in order to secure his power tells these new life form that they would have no other God before them and if they do, they will be punished mercilessly and then goes out to carry his promise when they disobey.
Fast forward a little more, Earthlings go into another world war, essentially killing all life on Earth, and the new humans in that far away planet never hear again from God or his angels and just keep praying hoping that someday, they’ll make contact again.
Gee, I wonder….
