For these many UFO religions, belief in extra-terrestrialism is either a peripheral tenet of the faith (but nonetheless important), or it is a central tenet of the faith. In America's Nation of Islam (unrelated to Islam, per se), extra-terrestrialism is peripheral but important. In Raelism, extra-terrestrialism is central. UFO religions disagree about who UFO pilots and passengers are. Are they golden Gods? Or are they simply messengers of the Gods? Or are they only pasty-plated creatures like us?
