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?

Because there is a strand of modern people who are obsessed with aliens. Its nutty really.

The most retarded are the scientific kind who believe there ARE aliens with no evidence!

Talk about insanity!
At least the tin foil hat has some blurry photos of big foot in the UFO or whatever. What do these retards have?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aelita

>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.

If you seriously believe aliens exist you have fallen victim to marxist Soviet delusions.

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?

>The general position of what is often referred to as the New Atheist movement is that atheists approach life through logic and empirical evidence (science) whereas religious people rely on faith and feelings. Many atheists would argue that they do not believe in something unless there is a good reason for doing so. But is this true?

>Atheists denounce the magical thinking that is derived from traditional religious narratives and faiths. However, they are open to other beliefs that lack scientific support. Turns out, even atheists are willing to take a leap of faith.

Whatever rocks your boat, honey.

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.

This very outcome is the only thing that counts, here. How you get to it is entirely your private issue.

Listen, mister teenage angst. Buy yourself a mind control deflection hat from Michael Menkin, buy a fedora to put beneath it, load up on ammunition and rifles and go on a killing spree if you think nothing matters.

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.
