A new documentary seeks to raise some intriguing new questions on the subject of alien visitation.
The quintessential ‘first contact’ scenario of aliens meeting the President of the United States on the White House lawn has been explored many times over the years, but what if – instead of contacting humans – intelligent aliens decided to bypass our civilization completely ?
In a new documentary entitled God Vs Aliens, filmmaker and musician Mark Christopher Lee poses an intriguing question – what if aliens instead tried to make contact with an artificial intelligence ?
This could be particularly possible if the aliens themselves happened to be advanced AIs.
It’s just one of the many thoughts put forward in the film which also explores how various religions around the world might respond to definitive proof of intelligent alien life.
“I think it could go either way,” said Lee.
“Religious people or groups might see it as a second coming – or they might see it as an anti-Christ, such as the Rapture movement in the US. But it could glorify God’s magnificence.”
Some high-ranking individuals within the Vatican even claim to have knowledge of alien visitors.
“Extraterrestrial contact is a real phenomenon,” said Vatican theologian Monsignor Corrado Balducci.
“The Vatican is receiving much information about extraterrestrials and their contacts with humans from its embassies in various countries, such as Mexico, Chile and Venezuela.”
God Versus Aliens premiered on AYOZAT in the UK on August 10th will also be available to stream on Amazon Prime very soon.
