As far as gods and angels being aliens, that idea has been explored a lot. There is a great book called "Chariots of the Gods" by Erich Von Daniken -- it must be at least several decades old by now. In his book he explores how some descriptions from the Bible sort of match a description of a space craft.
Like a firey shield coming down from Heaven, etc. The theory is that if our species evolved technologically to the point of being able to travel to and explore distant worlds, and if we found a primitive, intelligent species there -- we would be seen as gods. Because we can fly, we can make fire at will, we can heal the sick, and we have weapons that can take life away just by pointing them at whatever you want to die. The people we find on that distant planet would pray to us, fear us, and probably do whatever we tell them to do.
It's just a theory -- but a great book I'd recommend to anyone who wants to explore that idea.

The one who has spoken of such group was MWolfLady of Ministery of Satan about the group Joy of Satan. If I remember right she is a member of that group, she said it is a nice learning place but just the fact about Aliens is what messes up the whole ordeal of wanting to learn. To me that part is nothing more than a joke, guess cause I knew every time I saw stuff like that on tv it was all fake and never got into all that Alien stuff

Why are they called Satanists, then? Wouldn't not believing in Satan pretty much rule out being a Satanist?

I have always supposed, perhaps unkindly, that they call themselves Satanists to get attention. But since Jeff Belanger is correct in saying that Satanism is not the same as devil worship, not believing in the devil does not rule out Satanism.

Hmmm... that's interesting. I would just assume that if you incorporated a proper noun in the title of something, especially a religion (SATANism, CHRISTianity), that you would believe in that person. Oh, and BTW... Webster's dictionary seems to think that a Satanist worships Satan (or just devils in general). Perhaps someone would be kind enough to point me in the direction of something which would explain what a non-Satan-worshiping Satanist is?
Personally (until I see further explanation) I think it's more likely that you were correct, Gregory. I would assume it is for attention.

I read that book probably several decades ago ..hehe. It did go into aliens/angels theory. Kinda interesting how it interlock the two.
