    When I think about religion, god, life, the universe, humanity I wonder about what it is that drives people to...
    -Scientists weigh in on Hawking's alien warning

    Did a god create the universe, and was humanity maybe created by a collision of random events?

    This is where I think religion is headed as science makes things more clear. I think we will find an answer to how human life was created before we ever find our way through the competing theories of the creation of the universe.

    Why do people keep getting this backwards?

    Life got together one day and decided to create the universe so it would have a place to exist. Then we forgot.

    Thou Art God.

    Life on Earth was created in a random accident.

    God is an alcoholic driving on a suspended license.

    God's an illegal alien because he was not naturally born.

    Sorry bout that,


    1. Well Hawkings is way off base here, he thinks more like Star Trek, or Aliens, the Movies, as far as alien visitors goes, but if I was going to have to go with a fictional Movie, I would go with, *Close Encounters of the Thrid Kind*. buuuuwaannnnnannnnnn,......
    2. But I don't buy into it at all, if I was going to buy into there being other creatures.
    3. I on the other hand think this is it, God did it, and we will have to get used to what he's made.
    4. Otherwise, those who don't go with it, find themselves in a heap of trouble in the *Afterlife*.
    5. Sure dream about how God is false, and how these Aliens will come here and make us all slaves, that would beat having yourselves thrown into a eternal fire I suppose.:eek:

    1) very little difference. Aliens if they exist will look humanoid in some way---to have perfected travel through space would they will have to have built things. That dictates some form of digits to use tools, etc...

    the rest of your post is not worth responding to,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Maybe through evolutionary stages...but...

    but in order to start out from scratch...early aliens (think apes) would have to have been able to build things...rudimentary things, then later on, complex things. any telepathy or telekinesis would come later.

    I read a theory once about what it would take for aliens to progress in the same way we have. It proposed that like us they would need certain attributes.

    Of course if aliens were telepathic or had telekinesis I doubt they would travel as we do or need teh same things.

    think of the weird Alien encounters we hear about---advanced civilizations that need to probe orifices in order to study human biology. Hello? Possessing technology to travel across great distances, yet have only a rudimentary understanding of techniques to probe for biological evidence?

    If you pay attention to alien stories on earth, they always involve stories about alien technology that mirror the current technology at the time of the stories, or the stories mirror theories about what is thought possible at the time. :lol: no where do we even get stories that mirror technology we see on earth decades later. If we do hear something it is always so vague as to be up there with astrology and palm reading
