Was God a historical person?

[Excerpt from TT: 2002-11-21]

[oldwarrior] When the God/”god” Yahweh/Jehovah is discussed in the bible does this name refer to a historical, flesh and blood person? A being from another planet or solar system perhaps?

[M_Entity] In most cases, this is an individual, yet mostly based on what would today, in your culture, be called an “urban legend.” This is why there are so many conflicting accounts of visual contact with this “individual.” There was a valid individual to which most of the stories referred, and yes, the individual was not of Earth.

[oldwarrior] what species does Yahweh represent?

[M_Entity] This “god” has been an influence in many times and places and while the stories conveyed are based in the understandings of the time, the species being spoken of are the same in most cases. This would be the species most notably called “big foot,” “Sasquatch,” or “Yeti.”

Only in recent history has the chance been taken to be physically seen. Previous to this, most contact was interpreted as light, or glowing. This was due to the ability of that species to generate a telepathic block to visual interpretation of them. This need was seen to be important as the body types of this species tends to contradict the ideas of Humans as to what is civilized.
