Aliens in the Bible

Many people consider UFOs to be a well-known fact that we are being visited by beings from other planets. Yet, many assume that only recently these events have become common place. This could not be further from the truth. One of the most widely read books that has inspired millions of faith contains encounters with aliens. I speak of the Christian Bible.
The story is in the Book of Genesis. Jacob was the founder of the twelve tribes of Israel. He camped in the desert on a long journey from Beersheba to Haran. It is said that during this time, he had a dream in which he saw a ladder on earth which reached up to Heaven. Mysterious beings who Jacob believed to be angels were coming down from it. At the top of the ladder stood a being claiming to be the God of Abraham.
While many biblical scholars consider this a religious metaphor, some UFO enthusiast see it different. Ladders were not very commonplace in those days and if angels could fly why would they be climbing down from it. Jacob never explicitly states that these were angels. He simply mentions these were beings of awesome power. It is believed that these were aliens who came to visit Jacob and speak to him about the future of the children of Israel.
