    I don't know if either do, but it always amazes me that religious types will think people are nutters to believe there's life out there apart from us. I'd say there only has to be one logical answer to my question, really ...

    I'm an atheist, so I think aliens are more likely to exist

    What makes you dismiss the thought, they may be one of the same.

    hmm alien life is more likely to be proven than god...sorry to say....but what people haven't considered is that..earth possibly could have been be visited by aliens in the past..and thus people worshiped them making them our god. ...anything is possible. If you search on you tube...for ufo 2010..there have been numerous sightings..more than what you usually see....so something might be happening soon in our future.

    If God existed, wouldn't he/she/it be an alien to us by definition? I think we can pretty much dismiss the classic artist's view of God as a white-haired old man siting on a throne in the clouds, a la Zeus.

    Science explains (almost) everything -The drake equation is an attempt to work out how many alien civilisations exist in our galaxy, ....I recommend all Carl Sagans books.

    Even though I'm more or less religious, I don't think the idea of there being a Primuum Mobile or First Cause is at all incompatible with the idea of other intelligent lifeforms in other stars/galaxies/etc.

    A great book that touches on the idea, and one of my favorites of all time, would be "The Sparrow" by Mary Doria Russell

    There has at least been some evidence that Aliens exist. Video, photo's etc. No evidence that God exists. If you go by the bible, then science has pretty much proven all of it wrong

    Erich von Daniken wrote a book, "Chariots of the Gods" which led to a culture of Danikenitis mainly within American university and college campuses, from early to mid 1970s. Daniken wrote that our planet was visited by aliens, or space gods, about 40,000 years ago, who tinkered with the genes of early ape men to produce the present Homo Sapien species of today. They were also involved with the construction of the Great Pyramid of Egypt, the statues of Easter Island, the line drawings on the plains of Nazca, and even proposed that in the Bible, the Tabernacle Moses had built was a radio communication unit and the strange visions Ezekiel had was that of a helicopter.
    Early inhabitants of the earth, according to Daniken, worshipped these visitors as gods, because of their technology.
    Every mainstream scientist and archaeologist at best refuted all of Daniken's theories, or at worst, just ignored them. One of the scientists who refuted Daniken was Carl Sagan, who I believe, set up SETI in search of possible life elswhere in the Universe.
    Author Arthur C. Clarke, who wrote "The Sentinel" which later became the basis for the movie "2001 A Space Odyssey" which was a movie about our planet being visited by a super race of space gods, who evolved out of their bodies to exist as pure energy. Clarke also rebuked the works of Daniken.

    If there is life "out there" then evolution is a true science. For if we have evolved, then there is no reason why evolution is not at work elsewhere.
    If we are created, as the Bible says we are, then God must have created life on other planets too. On top of this, Christ would have to die on that planet to atone for their sins as well. This would contradict what the Bible says that Christ died once for all time, to reconcile us to God once and for all.

    Going by what the scientists and writers say, as well as what the Bible says, there can't be any other life in the Universe. We are alone.

    scientists ignore crack-pot rambling theories that make no sense...Gee I wonder why...


    and if the other life form on planet 61 or whatever is a single cell bacterium....you think Jesus died to save their quote, unquote souls

    Aliens: Very high mathematical probability they exist

    God: Probability of existence -- about zero, or .00000000000000000000001

    The existence of aliens CAN be scientifically proven. Just find one alien.
