Why are atheists so obsessed with aliens and other conspiracy theories? There is literally no credible evidence for their existence. Is it because they are immature manchildren?

In the simplest terms, atheists are spiritually dead and have nothing to believe in, no cause to which to dedicate their lives. Therefore they latch on to MUH ALIENS and other stupid shit.
Seriously, if there are aliens we can find them in due time. Time to focus on cleaning up our own race and planet before we start fucking with others.

I am a strong athiest, and I dont believe in aliens, or that aliens do not exist. I believe that there is a chance they exist, and a chance that they do not. At our technological level and understanding of the universe, I believe that we have no way to deem them existent, without having visual proof of one of them or their vehicles/objects/etc...
and I think we are wasting our time arguing over their existence, and should debate more important matters.

The issue of aliens and atheism is rather unrelated, and ones opinion of them comes from completely different disciplines.

Extraterrestrial life exists, somewhere. Full stop. End of story. It's so astronomically likely, that it's almost a mathematical guarantee. There might even be (or have been) some bacteria-sized life here in the Solar System deep in Mars or under the ice sheets or Europa or in the methane lakes of Titan. Whether that life will be intelligent or not is debatable; it's not yet been proven that human-level intelligence is an evolutionarily valuable adaptation over the long term. But life of some sort, for sure.

The existence of an anthropomorphic Abrahamic God is simply logically absurd. There mere existence of such an entity creates so many logical paradoxes that one has to be willfully mentally deficient to consider it a possibility. Now, being(s) that are so above humanity in capability as to SEEM like gods (and approaching the point where they are functionally indistinguishable) may exist, but that's not the same thing by any stretch. As a reality, "God" may exist; but as a concept, God is logically impossible.

Think about it this way: life is a fractal pattern.

We know organic compounds are distributed throughout the universe.

There are so many microbes on every square centimeter of every surface on our planet and in our bodies that we can never be fully rid of them.

There are over a million documented species of eukaryotic life, with another seven million or so expected to be discovered.

Among those already documented, over nine hundred thousand are animals.

Only one of those species of animals--as far as we know--is sentient.

They all live on one planet.

Our bodies are composed of approximately thirty-seven trillion cells, each of them with a mitochondria our most distant ancestors absorbed in the primordial soup. We are symbiotes with a host of gut flora and other microbes. We consume animal and plant lifeforms to fuel our biology. Although we may be the penultimate achievement of life on earth, we are hardly distinct from it.

We would not exist if not for all the other components in the system, and we are also a component in the system. The planet itself is a complex life form with a life cycle.

It is not possible that this has occurred in only one place in the universe. There are too many other galaxies, star systems, and planets. There's too much organic matter. We have evidence of microbes on Mars, and water in all sorts of places. There are bacteria on the Earth that thrive on radioactive decay and minerals alone.

It may be rare that a galaxy produces solar systems with the right materials and conditions for life, and rare that a solar system develops with a planet at the right distance from its star(s) for organic compounds to become microbes, and rarer still that a planet maintains such conditions long enough for life to thrive; and even more rare for such life to adapt the atmosphere of its host planet like our Oxygen Boom, but even at the most remote estimate, it is simply not realistic to think that Earth is one in infinity.

You know what's great about the internet?

No one ever has to lose an argument, no matter how wrong they are. You can just keep repeating your illogic over and over to infinity. If you're very lucky, someone joins in on your joke or takes your nonsense seriously. If enough idiots perpetuate your bullshit, you might even outnumber the people who know the truth.

Then you win; because on the internet the truth doesn't matter. Only memes are true on the internet. People who know what's actually true tend to give up on places like 7chan/phi, where memes have completely overwhelmed reason.

I know there's no hope here, but I'm not quite ready to give up on you.

Someday you'll get tired of the joke, or you'll realize the damage this meme is doing by reinforcing stupid people's beliefs, or you'll just grow old and die (let's hope I don't get there first), and intelligence will have a chance again.

You guys need to drop the “mental illness” meme. Just because somebody has acquired knowledge you dismiss and is sharing it in a way that appears unorthodox or of being under duress does not mean you ought to attempt to discredit them.

Imagine if your life suddenly became anime and you were battling sorcerers of villainy on the astral plane. How would you act when returning to your previous state of life?

HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS
FICTION AND NON-FICTION ARE INTERCHANGEABLE
GUYS
GUYS LISTEN
LIFE IS A FUCKING CARTOON JOKE AND THERE ARE ACTUALLY ALIENS GIVING US A FALSE REALITY
I’VE

THE TRUTH! !! !! ! ! !! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Just know that the reasons for so-called “schizo” symptoms are rooted in reality.
A reality that cannot easily be put into words for those who have not experienced it without appearing to be “mentally unfit”.
The suffering produced from such phenomenon attempted to be spoken about is what causes such bouts of distress.
I guess that scares you to accept such a truth that you do not know what you do not know and these schizo folks know something yet they cannot surely tell you to know, no, you must know only by personal experiential show.
I suppose that’s natural.

Yet I am not either. Nobody's asking you to believe anything. These people are certainly suffering at certain points, the question is why. If you were to tell me why, you would surely be mistaken for how would you be able to know the truth without relying on assumption? You state mental disorder as if you are not mentally ill yourself. I say that you are severely mentally ill, just like them. Your difference is not in your state of illness, but in your expression of it. We can play the mental illness game and I will find out just how decrepit and sick you really are but I need not do so because as soon as you take an honest eye to your own life you know that what I say is true. I simply ask for such discussion to be above calling each other what we already know; that we are all quite unwell and the question why we are unwell is why philosophy exists at all.

Kind of like how if you say you believe in a mythical sky man who spends every moment of his life keeping track of every single person on this planet and will punish them with an eternity of pain if they dare ignore him and his demands at any point during their lives, someone is going to ask you if have any proof said sky man exists.

Yet just because you can't prove he exists we won't mock you mercilessly for believing in him, unless you demand that we also believe in him. Then we will.

Just because you're not asking me to believe anything (you are by suggesting some form of validity), that doesn't mean you're free from scrutiny. Scrutiny is the whole point of this board. You ask why are these people suffering? It's from their distressed mental state which impairs their normal biological and cognitive function. You don't need to take this on assumption, because it is demonstrated through their erratic behavior and their misconceptions about reality. If you think your "life is an anime and that you're battling sorcerers of villainy on the astral plane" you're are mentally fucking ill.

>>13799

This is not particular to atheists. Lots of uneducated Bible-thumping holier-than-thou midwesterners also believe in crackpot conspiracy theories--even that the US government is hiding contact with advanced extraterrestrial life. One of the most popular conspiracy theories among them is that the Moon landing was faked as part of the ongoing cold war between the US, Russia, and alien interlopers. I've been told the Chinese are bringing on the Apocalypse by cooperating with alien overlords, who are the horsemen prophecized in Revelations, and that Xiping is the antichrist.

And you think atheists are crazy?

Don't get me wrong, I've no love for those 'enlightened by my idiocy' anti-christians (to be properly atheist, one must disbelieve any divinity--not just hate the one your parents made you study on Sundays), but just as there are a great many faithful fucktards, there are many faithless fucktards.

In every walk of life, some people are fucktarded.

https://mentalillnesspolicy.org/medical/schizophrenia-delusions.html
>One simple form of a delusion is the conviction that random events going on around the person all relate in a direct way to him or her. If you are walking down the street and a man on the opposite sidewalk coughs, you don’t think anything of it and may not even consciously hear the cough. The person with schizophrenia, however, not only hears the cough but may immediately decide it must be a signal of some kind, perhaps directed to someone else down the street to warn him that the person is coming.
>In many cases the delusions become more complex and integrated. Rather than simply being watched, the person becomes convinced that he/she is being controlled by other persons, manipulated, or even hypnotized. Such persons are constantly on the alert for confirmatory evidence to support their beliefs; needless to say, they always find it from among the myriad visual and auditory stimuli perceived by all of us each day.

The point of this board is philosophy, not scrutiny. This isn't a skeptic board. It's a philosophy board.

And what's going on with this guy's threads on /phi/ isn't philosophy, it's mental illness. He's not making philosophical arguments. He's just misinterpreting some information on a particular topic and solely replying to himself ad nauseum because he's genuinely afraid of interacting with other people.

Only an automated postbot would think that is a new or controversial idea (scientologists count as automated postbots).

Let's distinguish some kinds of people who are said to "believe in aliens", in order of least to most crazy.

Type A:
People who believe in, or purport to be open to the possibility of, extraterrestrial life, without making assumptions about what form(s) it may be in (microbes living off radioactive decay in the crust of Mars, dyson-sphere building mega-civilizations billions of lightyears away, whatever). Some of these people are quacks, but a lot of them just do the math--Earth being the only planet in an infinitely vast universe to develop life is statistically unlikely--and are waiting until we develop the technology to observe if any of the worlds we suspect could host life actually do.

Type B:
People who explicitly believe in advanced alien lifeforms in possession of high technology who have visited the earth and may continue to do so. Most of these people are quacks--believing in alien abductions, ancient alien contact, human descent from or design by a space-faring race, psychic contact, etc.--and some of them are genuinely mentally ill. I'll eat my foot if the aliens land in Central Park though.

Type C:
People who believe in a spiritual connection to extraterrestrial entities. All of these people are quacks. All of them, but most especially those who are an extension of type B. This is worse than religion; it's pure, unadulterated nonsense. Scientologists, Raëlians, Nation of Islam, and a number of other UFO cults prey on soft-brained, desperate people whose insatiable need to find meaning in existence has left them disappointed with everything real.
