How would you tell the differance? Seems to me just as likely a
possiblity of that then a real god, who I cannot concieve doing the
things you proported god does. An alien with an attitude fits the

heal the sick, turn frogs into battleships, whatever. He/she/it comes
down to earth, says I am the true lord and ye that follow me shall
have everlasting life, of course this alien can do no such thing but
it craves attention and likes gathering planets but you don't know
all that. Of course where there is one powerfull alien there could
be others not quite as strong trying to add their own crap to the
mix so Alien #1 convinces us alien #2 is the devil and watch out for
that one, it will cause you to burn in hell forever.....
