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?

Yes. It becomes fairly obvious that fedora tippers only rely on guesses and their own sci-fi fetishes. Like you posted earlier it seems that this frantic obsession with aliens is a remnant from some Soviet film maker.

>Many of them come to believe that they have been kidnapped by extraterrestrials regularly since they were children, that they are guinea pigs in an intergalactic hybrid-breeding program, and that in a close encounter of a truly original kind, they have had sperm and egg samples taken, alien fetused implanted and removed, and probes inserted in their vagina, anuses, and up their noses.

Why are Christians so obsessed with there not being life anywhere else in the universe? There is no credible reason to doubt that life exists elsewhere in the universe.

The problem is you're relying on ancient scribblings of guys who fucked goats in the desert in an era where we can see countless galaxies in the sky, with countless more in the gaps between them.

The hubble deep field is a patch of the sky smaller than your thumbnail. Each of the dots you see in this image is a galaxy, even the ones that don't look like galaxies. Each of those galaxies contain billions of stars, with billions of planets circling them.

Its not a religion. Its not a conspiracy. Its just math. You know, that thing you're bad at?

I love these pseudo-scientific conspiracy theories. It's like reading daily reports from a psych ward where some tinfoil hat wearing schizophrenic rambles on about how his badly digested breakfast might be a rectal probe that the aliens implanted in his colon.

It's scary to know that adult human beings are convinced that the X-files are real. People that sit and watch too many Hollywood garbage series and lose themselves in a fantasy.

Also, what's even more disturbing is that charlatans like Alex Jones or David Icke are being taken seriously.

I don't think that this is a very good post. So atheists don't believe in God, but they're willing to believe in something else. How is that a surprise or point of contention for you? Is it because you believe in God or don't like when scholars get cooky and talk about being visited by alien civilizations?

Anyway, if you want my two cents, agnosticism is the only real intelligent choice, as a person who has been given any kind of working tools for logic and reason. There is just no way to concretely determine anything about God or the true nature of our existence. You can't even prove that the computer you're typing on exists, at least not to me.

Agnosticism is atheism. There is no real difference except that agnostics hide behind their indecisiveness.

If you're going to be this wrong about everything, unable to converse properly, and annoying then I suggest you go back to 4chan. You don't seem to understand a single thing about epistemology (if you even know what that is), you're not intelligent and discerning enough to differentiate between athiesm and agnosticism (are you an adult?) and for some reason you have characterized all people who don't have faih in God as believing they can contact aliens.

Just go back to your delusional and bizarre flock at 4chan or your redneck church. Wherever. I don't care. You certainly have nothing to offeecr /phi/, and not much to gain from it either.

>atheists and agnostics
If they were the same they would not need to describe it this way. In the example you chose to back up your argument they are described as two separate groups, hence the need to refer to them separately.

You may want to put some thought into future replies instead of just flinging feces at a wall.

So? Does the fact that agnostics hold atheistic beliefs disprove what I said? You argue over semantics and not actual reality.

If agnostics aren't disbelievers then show me proof that they have any religious beliefs.

You basically say "just because 2+2=4 means that it can't be the same as 1+3=4 because they differ in miniscule ways".

You hold on tight to your fedora, son.

Many "atheists" prioritize undermining the religion they "left" over exploring the possibilities of living without a belief in a higher power and are essentially practising an inversion of their "previous" religion. They probably hold that finding, or proving the possibility of extraterrestrial life, will instantaneously unravel all the tenets of the religion they have come to despise.

Much of our theology, and particularly Abrahamic nonsense, conflates humanity with divinity to some degree. It's probably the same biased perspective that leads "abductees" to imagine alien life in forms they are familiar with: humanoid, bipedal, evolved, etc. It is easy to mistake that--although the predominant life form on Earth--humans are not special in the universe.

Then, if I may make an argument: not to side with the "atheists", but it is indeed such limiting theology and arrogance that is at the core of the "debate" over extraterrestrial life. We know that atoms are structures with particles and it appears those particles may have substructure as well; even single-celled organisms are collections of numerous levels of structure; a collection of organisms is an ecosystem, the various regional ecosystems of our planet form a global ecosystem, or planet has weather because it orbits a star at an angle; its position in the solar system is determined by the gravitational influence of the sun and other planets on its rotating mass, ours is one of countless systems in our galaxy, which is one of many in our galactic cluster, a substructure held in a lattice-shaped superstructure that spans the known universe.

The universe is a fractal shape, with systems of life within systems of life. I think it is only a matter of time until we realize this is true from the tiniest sub-atomic particles to the most unfathomable structures we can observe. This does not disprove the existence of a higher power; rather it is evident that we are some small piece of a much greater whole. Perhaps we are the leaves on a tree, or the grass on a cattle ranch, but I find it very unlikely that we are the end-goal of all existence--existence should set better goals for itself.
