Is God an alien?
We have cults like the Raelians claiming that Elohim (which is plural) means aliens (Eve was supposedly cloned from Adam's rib that was taken, I'd assume) and ancient writings of alleged contact with UFOs or whatever.
It's an interesting concept, although I don't exactly believe it, I'm wondering what you think. Could God be an extra-terrestrial?

BTW, Elohim IS the plural form of Eloah, which is a long form of El. El and Eloah both mean god in the singular, sometimes in the lower case, sometimes as a synonym for Yahweh. However, the fact that Elohim is plural does not mean that the authors of the Bible who used the word Elohim to express the concept of polytheism. Rather it expresses the idea that God is too important to be addressed (or speak) in the singlular. It is rather like if Queen of England were to say "We find our subjects quite happy". It does not mean there is more than one Queen or that she suffers from multiple personalities.

God created the world. He is omnipresent. He is not an alien.
