In Our Image

One foggy morning about a year or so ago, I poured myself a cup of coffee and looked for something to read.  There were a variety of books stacked on the table in the living room, each stack containing different subject matters.  On top of the stack of religious books was the bible.  I picked it up and opened to Genesis and began to read.  Upon reaching Genesis 1:26 I read the following:

 

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

 

 

What did it mean?  I continued reading until I came upon the following, in Genesis 3:22-24:

 

“And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:   Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”

 

Intrigued, I continued to read and came across yet another puzzling entry in Genesis 11:7 within the tower of Babel story.  I read “…let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” 

 

Why were the plural pronouns “us” and “our” used in these verses?  Could it be that those ancient astronaut theorists were correct?  Were we created by extraterrestrials?
