Have you lost your faith in God, but still desire to worship a higher power? Are you certain human beings are fools who couldn’t possibly be in charge of our own destiny? Do you like Star Wars? Then have I got the belief for you!
Aliens. But not just any old aliens, really smart aliens who could wipe us out at any time with their superior knowledge and technology (i.e. power). Yes Aliens are just like the God you used to know, only scientists won’t laugh at you when you say you believe in them.
The current Hollywood view of aliens portrays them a lot like human beings, only hairless with bigger heads and a disturbing anal probe fetish. But Hollywood is full of junkies and sodomites and since humanity has yet to find proof of alien civilization, extraterrestrials can really be whatever you want.
Adherents to this religion need only believe in the existence of superior extraterrestrial life and then they can begin to imbue them with whatever characteristics they like. Angry right wing dickheads may choose indignant aliens who view humankind as a cancer upon the universe, and to whom we must prove our worthiness or face elimination, while doe-eyed hippie idealists might place their faith in benign and altruistic beings waiting to lead us into a life of peace and happiness. Aliens can be whatever you want, just don’t get them confused with illegal aliens who are to be despised and harassed back to their homeland by all freedom loving patriots at every opportunity.
Requirements – Belief that human beings couldn’t possibly be the smartest beings in the Universe and somewhere our natural leaders are wagging their tentacles at our stupidity.
