By definition, if there is God, it is not human, nor is it an organism from Earth; hence, it's an extra-terrestrial being, an alien. Legally, atleast in U.S. of A, it would be considered an "illegal alien", b/c it wouldn't have The Green Card. :)

But, I guess you are asking if what people consider as a God, a prophet, a messiah, etc, was some alien forms who visited Earth. Or, are you asking whether some aliens started life on this Earth to study us or some other reason? If you are a fan of sci-fi books like me, you would notice these questions were raised by authors like Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov and Vonnegut. My opinion is that "God is an alien" is as plausible as the theories of the other religions - that is, there was no way to prove it or not. But, atleast it's more interesting.

My favourite "God/Jesus is an Alien" story is one in Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-5; here is how it goes: It was The Gospel from Outer Space, by Kilgore Trout. It was about a visitor from outer space, shaped very much like a Tralfamadorian, by the way. The visitor from outer space made a serious study of Christianity, to learn, if he could, why Christians found it so easy to be cruel. He concluded that at least part of the trouble was slipshod storytelling in the New Testament. He supposed that the intent of the Gospels was to teach people, among other things, to be merciful, even to the lowest of the low.
But the Gospels actually taught this:
Before you kill somebody, make absolutely sure he isn't well connected. So it goes.

The flaw in the Christ stories, said the visitor from outer space, was that Christ, who didn't look like much, was actually the Son of the Most Powerful Being of the Universe. Readers understood that, so, when they came to the crucifixion, they naturally thought, and Rosewater read out loud again:
Oh, boy -- they sure picked the wrong guy to lynch that time!
And then that thought had a brother: "There are right people to lynch." Who? People not well connected. So it goes.

The visitor from outer space made a gift to Earth of a new Gospel. In it, Jesus really was a nobody, and a pain in the neck to a lot of people with better connections than he had. He still got to say all the lovely and puzzling things he said in the other Gospels.
So the people amused themselves one day by nailing him to a cross and planting the cross in the ground. There couldn't possibly be any repercussions, the lynchers thought. The reader would have to think that, too, since the new Gospel hammered home again and again what a nobody Jesus was.
And then, just before the nobody died, the heavens opened up, and there was thunder and lightning. The voice of God came crashing down. He told the people that he was adopting the bum as his son, giving him the full powers and privileges of The Son of the Creator of the Universe throughout all eternity. God said this: From this moment on, He will punish horribly anybody who torments a bum who has no connections!

Possibly so, as long as his appearance is atleast remotely similar to what we have. I'd say "A Little Green Man" qualifies.

It would explain a lot of things!

One of my English profs used to say, Passaaad'n. I can't get his pronunciation out of my head.

You'd think that VW Passaaad'n would have a lot of horsepower, since Poseidon was god of the sea and earthquakes, etc, the most powerful of the Greek gods after Zeus. He was also a god of horses, so it all fits.

Yes, God is an alien is some ways in that God is a figment of one's imagination and aliens (as claimed by some who've seen them) are also likewise figments of imaginations. Although, of course, there is life elsewhere in the universe, we just haven't discovered it.

We will however, never discover God because he simply does not exist.

Ever consider it may well be the other way around?? That we are mere figments of God's imagination?? This is what Shakespeare was trying to say in The Tempest.

I have thought of that once, I think he could be an Alien cuz he is not human, hope that makes sense.

And as human keeps evolving as to other things surrounding it, God doesnt, making him more different from us. Cuz maybe, If the Devil has those 2 or some more horns, and some of those angels have wings, what does God have on him(?)self ?
