Katipuneros and Aliens

Filipinos do not believe in aliens (extra-terrestials) ... only.

Someone built that "thing" behind a monument to Andres Bonifacio and the Katipunan (Filipino revolutionary movement vs. the Spanish).

We believe in a host of other things or beings, and yeah, it is easy to assign some or one of them to be the supreme deity or deities.  Western societies, being more developed and therefore more "scientific" assigns extraterrestrials to explain almost everything that go bump in the night (try watching Ancient Aliens...).  Salvation to the human condition comes from outside whether it is Superman or E.T.  Filipinos, perhaps less "scientific," are prone to believe in the supernatural which may in some way actually connect us to a deeper reality.
