Paul is an active Mormon ----- so please understand his 'brainwashing'. He believes in a God with flesh and bones, in golden plates, resurection of the body, in prophets (that have never predicted anything specific but as long as they say what he believes), and many other things totally brainwashed people would believe in!!! He believes he is special because he is getting screwed out of 10% of his income and his work in the church so he can be a god whereas the rest of us will be servants to gods like him forever and ever!!!
As far as aliens, whether Paul has studied it or not --- one of his so called prophets (Brigham Young) said that all planets were set up to be inhabited by beings. The moon, in the 1800's, had 'beings' that dressed up as Quakers (all 6') --- so if Farsight has seen any aliens that don't look like Quakers, they are obviously misguided.
If you think this is a joke ---- truth is much stranger than what I can make up!!
