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?

>Aelita (Russian: Аэли́та, pronounced [aɛˈlʲita]), also known as Aelita: Queen of Mars, is a silent film directed by Soviet filmmaker Yakov Protazanov made at the Mezhrabpom-Rus film studio and released in 1924.
>It primarily tells of a young man, Los (Russian: Лось, literally Elk), traveling to Mars in a rocket ship, where he leads a popular uprising against the ruling group of Elders, with the support of Queen Aelita who has fallen in love with him after watching him through a telescope.

Why are self-defined 'religious' people so obsessed with their 'deities', for which there is no credible evidence of existence, either?

Are they immature, too, or are they rather in need to tell each other stories that enable them to behave like decent human beings? Like everyone else?

I won't say that religions are innately bad, but the moment the get deployed for political leverage, carnage is imminent.

What's wrong with looking for safer alternatives for civilization-maintaining storytelling?

It doesn't matter if you answer the unanswerable questions with stories of deities or stories of aliens, as long as the myth of your choice satisfies your hungry mind, so you can bring yourself to accept that you are not the most important thing in the world and you can bear to behave in a decent way.

Maybe all alien civilizations killed themselves shortly after creating radio waves (like we are in the process of doing right now).

Or maybe the universe is so big and aliens who have the technology to travel across such vast distances view us as "sub-life" and not worth even visiting.

Or maybe the universe is so big that eventually technology in space transportation comes to a stop and it isn't efficient to travel to distant planets.


The probability of life occurring natural is very small, but with the size of the universe it's kind of hard to imagine a world without alien species.

The only thing more stupid than a rational theist, is an irrational atheist. Which is any atheist. Evidentialism is an inductionism. Basing a concept of faith, which atheism is, since it is the belief in non-entity, not a not belief in entity, (such giving off the illusion, that the atheist position does not commit to the same extent as the theist to a proper concept of general belief), on rational induction is self contradictory.

Though I believe most atheists suffer from the very issue you describe, I do believe there to be a flaw to your perception.
Atheism is not based upon a faith in lack-of-god, it's based upon confidence in the apparent absence of proof of god. Absence of proof toward a postulation such as a religion CAN be the existence of proof toward a postulation such as atheism. Not by (ab)use of any logics, but by evidencing that any gods must be making themselves entirely absent except in cases where their influence can be more confidently explained by other factors, and have been for the entirety of recorded human history... except in religious books that base the truth of their claims in nothing but faith and having been around around the time.
As an evidence to the above, would anyone convert if a Mormon claimed that his books must be true, as a man named Joseph Smith did in fact live during the 1800s AND outside testimonies exist around that time claiming he was preaching the religion?

Because most atheists are not actually atheistic, they are merely religiously inverted. If a person were truly atheistic, they would have no need to disprove the religious beliefs of others--and particularly no need to disprove religious beliefs they once held. There's no logical reason to prove the non-existence of a thing which cannot be proven to exist. Seeking archeological evidence of prehistorical contact with extra-terrestrial life is one thing; seeking proof that the gods and heroes of myth and legend were actually aliens interfering in human development is a sad attempt to get back at the belief systems that have disappointed them.

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 do warn you that,at 57, and thousands of debates with fanatics (be they Christian, Communists, Neo-Nazis, racists, etc.) I know all the tricks in the book.
If you are interested in serious debate, fine. If you think I am a lone, sad, bitter man in desperate need for company (the stock Christian image of atheists),and that therefore you may bring me into the fold with lazy >greentext and fedora memes, you are grievously mistaken. I like nice conversations, but truth has nothing to do with being an asshole on an imaginary high horse, making fun of strawmen.

It's sad to know that fedora tippers are convinced that aliens exist. Both Harvard professors and even engineers at NASA just assert claims without any proof whatsoever.

You can tell by the poster above me that atheists are butthurt about their science fiction delusions.

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.

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.

Agnosticism is atheism. Agnostics deny there is evidence, as in knowledge, and thus claim you can't know anything.

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.

Psychology; humans don't know what they want so until recently people allowed others to do the thinking for them. We've had an explosion in philosophical inquiry, everyone these days thinks that they are a philosopher (author included).

All atheists have done is select an arbitrary thing (space aliens) and invested it with great meaning. When and if aliens are found, that will be fun (or horrifying) for about 10 minutes and then they will move on to the next arbitrary amusement (or proceed to be vaporized by an advanced civilization)

Not to defend fedora tipping, but at this point to be unwilling to accept the fact that life--in one form or another--exists elsewhere in the universe demonstrates a profound state of denial.

Even the Catholic Church has an astronomy program engaged in the search for extraterrestrial life (and perhaps proof their 'creator' exists).
