Re: Qesus?

Other races.. I could be a smartass and ask if that wasn't what Jesus was doing, hanging out with other races. But I think a lot of Christian theology presumes us to be the only species in the universe.

Yes it's hilarious that the Goa'uld or the Wormhold aliens or whoever get to be the Gods or prophets of entire species and planets but the only way they get to do that on earth is if it's a dead culture such as ancient Egypt.
The worst example of that is in Seth, where we discover that the Goauld Set has stayed on Earth for 2000 years and only got to be head of a cult of about 12 people... With that length of time, logically he should've at least been Pope...

I'm only on season 5 so I'm still holding out for the big Goa'uld = the Pope revelation.

Well, it's less likely to offend the viewing audience that way.

I don't think they ever even hinted at Q being Jesus. If anything, they might have hinted at Satan, but I don't recall that.

You, sir, are correct. The concept of Hellfire is not of Biblical origin, but crept into Christianity gradually over the first 400 years or so.

Getting back to the subject at hand ... I don't see Q impersonating Jesus as the Messiah, living with humanity for 33 years, giving his life as a sacrifice and then turning around and wanting to judge and condemn that same humanity as he did in Encounter at Farpoint and All Good Things.

Thing is, Q (as in de Lancie) is the only one in the Continuum who has any real interest in humanity. And since behaving in such a manner would be a bit out of character for him, well...

We met Satan in TAS' "The Magicks of Megas-Tu". He was a pretty nice guy, just a bit mishchievous and misunderstood. And totally jacked!

Because it was mentioned every other time we saw another Q.

Besides, remember in Q Who Guinan comments that the other Q are "almost respectable." I don't know how many "almost respectable" people would try to manipulate a primitive species into worshipping them.

That doesn't have to be *the* devil. Just *a* devil. And even if it claimed to be Satan, doesn't mean it actually was.

Although Satan regularly engages in just that sort of lies and deceit, so (pardon the pun) what the hell.

The Bible doesn't really say one way or the other, although I do wonder about John 10:16. It does state that God created the heavens right there in line one, so if extraterrestrial intelligent life is ever found, Christians will be cool with it.

Re: Qesus?

There is absolutely nothing in the Bible which precludes the existence of aliens or any extraterrestrial life. Nowhere does it say that we are the only intelligent species in the universe. If aliens made contact with us right now, it wouldn't violate any tenet of my faith. I think most people would welcome it.
