The Bible has many fantastic claims, from virgin births to resurrections. Many point to this being a sign of divine intervention from God. But many theorize there is another explanation. Aliens.
The Evidence of Aliens in the Bible
Ancient aliens have gained some mainstream traction since Erich von Däniken’s Chariot of the God’s. In recent years the History Channel and Ancient Aliens have helped this theory rise from niche corners of the Internet to become a meme-able pop culture phenomenon.
With the rise of the ancient-alien theory, many have looked at the Bible as a key supporting piece of evidence for aliens visiting Earth.
Here are a few strongest cases to be made for grey aliens in Bible
In Genesis When God Creates “the Heavens and the Earth”
You don’t have to read far into the Bible to get to the first possible evidence of aliens. Early on in Genesis, God creates the heavens, the earth, and the stars (Genesis 1:16.)
Genesis continues to give us context clues of other alien-life forms:
“When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. … The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them.”Genesis 6:1–4
While many Christians believe that these other “sons of Gods” are various families and descendants of Adam and Eve, others believe these to be aliens. Later in the Bible, specifically the Book of Enoch, this passage is expanded and given more content that supports ancient Biblical alien theorists.
It says that the sons of Gods where 200 “angels” sent by God called the Watchers. They were sent to Earth to breed with humans and create offspring called Nephilim (which translates to “giants”.)
The Watchers also teach humans many skills across metalworking, astrology, astronomy, and more.
Aliens Gave Moses the 10 Commandments
Moses climbing Mount Sinai is one of most epic tales in the Bible. Moses climbs the mountain and speaks to a burning bush, and comes back down the mountain with the 10 commandments. But anyone who has seen a bush knows that bushes do not talk. Even the ones on fire.
So was this God appearing to Moses as a burning bush? Or did Moses speak to aliens? It’s more conceivable that Moses came in contact with a UFO on top of Mount Sinai, which gave off the smoke and fire he claims to have seen on top the mountain.
Those ten commandments Moses returned with are basic pillars of humanity. All forms of intelligent life on Earth have valued these commandments are the foundation of what is right in the world.
Many who believe in the ancient alien theory say that Moses was ‘used’ by aliens as a special agent to help set humanity on the right path. Whether he knowingly knew these were aliens, or was tricked to believe it was God, is not known.
Ezekiel’s Vision of God
This is a favorite of many who believe aliens are behind the stories of the Bible, and where the Chariot of the God’s theory originated.
In the Book of Ezekiel, Ezekiel tells of a first-hand experience of what he believes in a vision of God. He says:
“Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man.”Ezekiel 1:4
While to Ezekiel, this may have seen like a divine intervention. But to us, this clearly seems to be a spaceship. Many indigenous American people who first saw ships and explorers from Europe thought they too were God.
It’s easy to see how Ezekiel would have mistaken these aliens and UFOs for Gods. Even in art and literature after the fact, the story becomes even more engrained that it was God, not aliens, and how it was depicted.
However reading that passage now, with no other context, it seems evident that “a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself” and “four living creatures” seems to me that Ezekiel saw a UFO. It sounds like a modern day jet.
Jesus Christ Himself Was an Alien
The story of Jesus Christ tells of a virgin woman named Mary conceiving a child with the Holy Spirit. This child would be the son of God.
Now we all know that babies are not conceived without, uh, sin. That’s why the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ is considered a miracle. But what if it wasn’t God who is the father of Jesus Christ. What if it were aliens?
This story aligns closely with the modern day interpretation of alien abduction. Mary was visited by aliens, which artificially inseminated her, creating a half-alien half-human hybrid in the form of Jesus. This could potentially also explain any supernatural abilities he displayed.
Even more odd is the art that depicts the Annunciation of Jesus Christ, showing a beam of light coming down from the sky.
Aliens Elsewhere in the Bible
There are countless other pieces of the Bible that some scholars point to as evidence of extraterrestrial interference. From the Ark of the Covenant being alien technology, to the Great Flood being punishment from a higher-alien being punishing his people for having sexual relations with pre-humans, kick starting human evolution.
For now, we don’t know if the Bible is even factual. But from what we know today, and if we’re taking the Bible as a literal text, what is more likely? That this is the work of an all-powerful God, or that early humans mistook an alien race as supernatural?
We will (probably) never know.
