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.

>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.

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.

Anonymous 17/04/04(Tue)04:40 No. 12884 ID: 6cb73d

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?

Anonymous 17/04/23(Sun)20:39 No. 12909 ID: 4dadc4

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.

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.

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".

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.

He started out with a belief, grabbed onto any and all relevant assertions and statements and random blog posts to back up that belief, like a shipwreck survivor grabbing flotsam, and no amount of logic or data will dissuade him from it.

Even if aliens were to show up on planet Earth, he wouldn't accept they were aliens. Because its not what the heavily inbred hillbilly enclave he lives in believes. Everyone around him will have been instantly killed by alien death rays and he will stand there demanding the clearly inhuman alien show them ID moments before they're also shot.

You can't win by presenting facts. He's clearly an irrational actor who believes in emotion, not facts. His emotions tell him what is true. Every post he's made in this thread shows this to be true.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Yeah pretty much. Believing in some Wallace and grommet type fantasy is just like believing in some sky daddy. However, you're incorrect in thinking that this is somehow above reproach. Again, the whole point of this board is scrutiny. Don't like it? Then get the fuck off my board.

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.

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.

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.

The navy has officers stationed all over the planet, many of them specifically having the job of monitoring the skies for unusual activity, such as fighter jet deployments or missile launches. They have a formal procedure to report things seen that were not readily identifiable at the time.

Now calm down and drink your cyanide kool-aid.
