Technically, wouldn’t god or gods or goddesses have to also qualify as non human intelligent aliens? That’s a great question, sadly, we can only explore the answer in fiction these days:
(Fake News — In the film, an Earth-based crew is sent on a long journey to a near-by star system to explore a planet believed to host an advanced civilization. The film asks not just how realistic such a premise is, but more complex questions: Did aliens create the human race? If so, does that negate the existence of God? Or, did God create the aliens? Ridley Scott, it seems, is a believer.
“The more you go into it, the more you realize that it kind of makes sense,” Scott told FoxNews.com. “You stand outside at night, you look at the galaxy, and think, ‘The fact that we think we’re the only ones here is entirely ridiculous.’ It’s an arrogance to believe that we’re the only ones here.”
Yes, it is arrogant to think the entire universe is empty save for one species that has learned to appreciate the cosmos in the last hundred years. That would be almost as dumb as thinking the same universe was built exclusively as an amphitheatre hosting a pissing contest between rival deities using the same species as prizes.
