Actually, Klaatu told us we would be destroyed if we didn't behave. Sounds kinda fundie, doesn't it?

wait, so any one person or being for that matter that wants to stop war and bring peace upon Earth is a false messiah and/or satan? What if it was Jesus in disguise? I'm sure that if Jesus returned to Earth to bring peace to mankind, these fuckers would stone him to death for apostasy...
that logic seems really twisted and fucked up....
promoting peace = selling your soul to satan

If Satan can appear as an 'angel of light', how are you sure he didn't inspire the Bible? Or appear as a burning bush?

"Ever see "The Day The Earth Stood Still?" It's about an alien who visits earth in order to end war and bring peace to mankind - in other words, a false Messiah."
And then there's the sane interpretation: IT'S JUST A MOVIE, YOU FUCKING MORON.
"Please notice that the "aliens" never mention God or Christ. If these were really beings more advanced than us, then surely they would know something about the Creator and His plan of redemption."
Or it could just be that, y'know, your psychotic god and everything in your bible are strictly HUMAN delusions, not shared by every intelligent species in the universe.
"Some 'aliens' are even said to wear badges that look like flying serpents; a symbol of the devil in his angelic guise."
Wait, what? A flying serpent is the devil's "angelic" form? o_O

I guess he'd want E.T. burned at the stake, too.

Jebus! This dumbass is justifying one myth with another!

this guy is batshit. O.o should probably crosspost this to CTSTDT. :D

"Most of the UFO stories I have read have a satanic subtext to them "
So fucking what? Bugs bunny cartoons have a satanic subtext in the minds of you morons.

"It's about an alien who visits earth in order to end war and bring peace to mankind - in other words, a false Messiah."
How is that false? I haven't watched the movie, but I don't remember the alien having ulterior motives.
"Please notice that the "aliens" never mention God or Christ."
If aliens are advanced enough to travel between solar systems, they either have a way better god or none at all. Given the diversity of God even in the human world, I suggest that aliens probably have a God who is vastly different on minor political issues.

I've never fellowshipped in my life. For one thing, it's illegal in many states.

I think they're gonna have to send the monolith back for the fundies. The first treatment didn't work on their ancestors.
6/18/2008 9:24:01 PM
Now THAT'S the kinda crazy talk we like here at FSTDT, MS. It's about time!
BTW: It's all bullsh*t. Refer to sleep paralysis and various mental disorders. Also, there's a pretty good overview of the adbuction phenomenon at the Skeptic's Dictionary (www.skepdic.com).
Buck the fundy trend--do some research.

Erm... well, it's more like he's telling Earth to chill with the nukes. He doesn't much care if we kill each other, but if we go out into space and cause any havoc there, they'll reduce Earth into a steaming pile of ash. Not very humanistic, but quite rational. ...unlike MessianicServant.

Being a good Galactic Citizen. It's not just a good idea. It's the law.
6/18/2008 10:24:57 PM
What is it with fundies and aliens?
6/18/2008 10:28:01 PM
Isn't this the same troll who claims they are a scientist?
6/18/2008 10:48:17 PM
Aliens do not believe in my primitive Bronze Age mythology! This proves that they cannot be an advanced species!
6/18/2008 11:03:32 PM
"Most of the UFO stories I have read have a satanic subtext to them that you, as a Christian, are probably aware of."
You misspelled "imagining you see in everything."
Hope this helps.

JESUS! Klaatu barada nikto!

Nanoo, nanoo ...
I'm going to have to make a point of mentioning this, the next time my Trekker club gets together. Breaking the news about Pokemon being Satanic got me promoted to officer rank, maybe this'll finally get me kicked up to flag.

That's a very depressing mental image.

I don't allow my children to watch "E.T.," precisely for the reason that I presents an alien being as a potential savior figure.
