If humans were genetically influenced by alien intervention...then wouldn't it be that those aliens would also program us to have a strong desire to do Good and believe in a God?
The reasoning for this is, of course, survival of our species. It is genetically better for humans to be peaceful rather than to be at war. Dead people do not pass on their genes.
I thought of this question because of all the recent questions concerning the possibility of alien intervention in human development.
I post this question in memory of my Father, Richard Johnsen...He would have loved answering this question!

There was probably some interaction between human and aliens. But, they probably left us to free will as much possible.
Proof of is our violent behavior. Yes make love not war. As species we have a long way to go.
God is a AK 47 in almost the whole of Africa. Just a bunch of bullies do whatever they want. Actually I hope you are right and we will manifest that behavior eventually.
Do forget not everyone is not filled with the love you have.
Think positive but keep a shotgun by you bed! Love Tom
Gotta love Toms answer. HA! But any answer to this question will only be conjecture because the aliens ain’t talkin. A quick review of the situation might give us some clues though.
People can be pretty random. Just look out into the world and the evidence is clear. We Make Stuff Up. The Bible says human beings started less than 10,000 years ago and that there was a garden of Eden where Adam and Eve lived. Real scientific investigation has confirmed humans have lived on planet Earth hundreds of thousands if not millions of years. The religions hate this. But either way, the human race is quite a mixture of those who believe in God, those who believe in “something” whatever that may be and the rest who believe we’re on our own. Did the aliens miss the last two groups? Nah. I believe it’s all a combination of several factors that come from who and what we, as human beings are. Part upbringing, part environment and part what’s in our heads and hearts.
Yes, we do have choice after all is said and done, but emotion, and especially fear plays a big part in all of this. The fear to break out of the social norm and find ourselves alone. What’s more, human beings have a very high need for “meaning”. And when we can’t find the real answers to our questions like “Where did we come from, why are we here and where are we going?”, heh heh… we make stuff up. So it’s not so much that we are programmed to believe in anything. It’s more like we just have this natural need to understand. Gaining understanding helps in our quest for survival. But even more is our need to avoid pain and gain pleasure or comfort and we accomplish this best with understanding, even if it's all made up. Besides, for many it’s just comforting to believe there is a Supreme being who will take care of them so they would probably have chosen this without alien intervention anyway. It’s all good. God bless Richard Johnsen. ;-)

Not necessarily by "aliens." These mind parasites were known as the Archon by the Gnostics.

Many will disagree, but, every religion under the sun has an astrological foundation.
"Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; THE MYSTERY OF THE SEVEN STARS, which thou sawest in my right hand." Revelation 1:19-20.
7 stars = Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Mercury, Sun and moon!!
The 12 sons of Jacob represent the 12 Constellations of the Zodiac. For example:
Leo, the lion is represented by Judah, the 4th son of Jacob. “Judah is a lion’s whelp, from the prey my son thou art gone up. He stooped down, he crouched like a lion.” Gen. 49:9

actually jai god is not a belief he actually exist(god his the absolute truth). has for the belief programmed in you that his the ego. since men have use and corrupted religion to their advantage to suit their perpace their ego for money and power many people are stuck in the belief. get over the ego and stay in the truth and you will know god.
this statement his true: Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
so experiance and enjoy.
has for the alien they are also under god. that they know it or not does not change the truth.
i'd say our personal beliefs
so where did they get theirs
or towing the line through fear
