Aliens in the Bible – A short list of the most important “gods” mentioned in the Bible
“The ten I will give you because he has forsaken me and has worshiped Astarte, goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh, god of Moab, and Milcom, god of the Ammonites; he has not followed my ways or done what is pleasing to me according to my statutes and my decrees, as his father David did.”

9. The many (alien) gods of the Bible
Many are the “gods” mentioned in the Bible, in particular in the Old Testament, and the biblical stories are built from this assumption: “gods” are several, each one of them rules over a territory but Yahweh, “god” of Israel, is the best of them all; he will defeat the other gods and conquer their territories.
For those who have not read the previous sections of this chapter yet, let us immediately clarify that these so-called “gods” were not such, but were instead very powerful extraterrestrial humans belonging to the ancient alien race of the Elohim.
During our eXtraHuman journey we will have the chance to analyze various biblical stories from which this is clear. For the moment however, we will limit ourselves to a list of some of the most important gods mentioned in the sacred book.
The original Hebrew scrolls mention many; here we will limit ourselves to talking about the four best known. Shocking: while reading the (real) Bible instead of finding the description of the one universal God, we find descriptions of many superhuman “gods” in flesh and blood who fiercely ruled men and things.
Truly, no sign whatsoever of the holy creator of heavens and Earth; the gods of the Bible are many and they are aliens.
According to the Bible accounts, Elyon (עֶלְיוֹן֙) is the most important and powerful “god” of all. He is often referred to by the Bible as “the supreme one”, precisely to indicate his hierarchical position. The Bible specifies that it was him who divided the Earth and its peoples among the Elohim. He will assign the Jews to the biblical god Yahweh, a member of the Elohim as well but of a lower rank. Elyon seems to be the correspondent of the Sumerian god Anu which happens to mean the same thing: “the supreme one”.
Deuteronomy 32 – 8,9: “When Elyon assigned the nations their heritage, when he parcelled out the descendants of Adam, He set up the boundaries of the peoples after the number of the sons of the Elohim; Yahweh own portion was Jacob, His hereditary share was Israel.”
The Old Testament narrates a series of events linked to the relationship between a family of Jews – Jacob‘s family – and a “god”, one individual belonging to the group of the Elohim, Yahweh. (See article Elohim: those who from heaven to earth came.)
He was the supreme ruler and alien-god of the Jews. He is the protagonist of the Old Testament which describes him as a warrior-god. In fact war is the only thing he deals with at least according to the biblical stories. Yahweh will lead the Jews out of Egypt first, and then during the Exodus, into the fierce occupation wars they waged against the neighboring “nations”.
The subsequent monotheistic theological elaborations transformed Yahweh first into the only one and universal God and subsequently arbitrarily identified him with the God-Father of Christian doctrine.
Exodus 15:3: “Yahweh is a man of war Yahweh is his name“
Regarding Exodus 15:3, we cannot fail to note that the original Hebrew text uses, in reference to Yahweh, (which according to theology should be nothing less than God) the Hebrew term “ish” (אִישׁ) which means “man”: “Yahweh is a man of war”.
The Hebrew text literally say that Yahweh was a man, a warrior. This confirms what we think here at eXtraHumans, that Yahweh and in general all the Elohim are not described by the Bible as spiritual, abstract and indefinite divine entities, but rather as beings in flesh and blood even if much more evolved and advanced of men.
The Bible is quite explicit about the geographical roots of Yahweh, repeatedly linking his presence to the mountainous wilderness and the deserts of the southern Levant. Judges 5:4 says that Yahweh “went forth from Seir” and “marched out of the field of Edom.” Habbakuk 3:3 tells that “God came from Teman,” specifically from Mount Paran.
If, as it seems to be the case, Yahweh ruled those territories he was probably acting as local governor responsible for the control over that patch of land that ranges from the Sinai and Negev to northern Arabia.
The Bible tells among the other things that the Israeli king Solomon had some degree of relation with him, presumably of a strategic-military nature.
1 Kings 11:5 : “By following Astarte, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Milcom, the abomination of the Ammonites”
Numbers 21: 29: “Woe to you, O Moab! You are ruined, O people of Chemosh! He let his sons become fugitives and his daughters be taken captive by the Amorite king Sihon.”
10. From polytheism to monotheism (aliens in the Bible)
The initially polytheistic stories contained in the ancient tales of Jewish origins (the Bible) were rewritten from a certain point on in a monotheistic version. Also, it was decided to transform Yahweh into the only existing universal God.
According to the Documentary Hypothesis developed originally in the 1870s (and also according to many Bible scholars), it is very possible that different authors (the Jahwist, Elohist, Deuteronomist, etc) were responsible for editing the biblical stories from the original polytheistic accounts into monotheistic ones.
Inconsistencies that arise in the texts between monotheism and polytheism confirm this hypothesis.
The Bible underwent a radical rewriting process in which the gods of the earliest periods as the national gods of monolatrism either disappeared or were passed off for fictitious figures invented by the ancients, while they were instead very much real exactly as Yahweh was.
Major pushes in that sense happened during the 7th to 6th century BC during the Kingdom of Judah and during the Babylonian captivity, and once again in terms monotheistic re-adaptations with the emergence of Rabbinism in the 2nd century CE.
The real paradigm shift however occurred after the Babylonians’ conquest of Judah and arson of the Temple in 587 B.C; the catastrophe of war and the subsequent exile to Babylon of the most important Judahite families inevitably casted shades on the faith they had put in Yahweh.
The question was: how to explain what happened?
Already the Old Testament book of Isaiah, composed during or immediately after the exile, contains this idea.
In the centuries that followed, the various editions of the Bible refined and strengthened this monotheistic narrative, creating the basis for a universal religion that could continue to exist even without being linked to a specific territory or people.
From a situation where multiple powerful beings dominated Earth and humans, the narrative has been thus hidden and reshaped by creating an almighty entity. How can humans learn of our true past and origins if ancient texts have been corrupted?
How come we never heard of the many (alien) gods of the Bible?

What you can expect from the next section:
We will analyze the statements of important rabbis who have been asked about God. If the Bible is about God, they should know; additionally we will read some statements from important clergymen who have been asked about extraterrestrials.
“We believe in the Lord who brought us out of Egypt and gave us the Torah, events of which we have witnessed. But instead be careful not to say that we believe in the Lord who created the world. Because although all of us, at least the Jews, are convinced of this fact, nobody has witnessed it.” – Yehuda Ha-Levi, first century AD.
