Why do so many atheist scientists believe in aliens when there's no proof for them either?

    It's a question that intrigues me, the fact that atheist scientists say there's no proof of God, but then declare to the world that there MUST be millions of alien civilizations in our universe.

    There is, in fact, more proof of God than there are of aliens.

    Because there's NO PROOF of aliens.

    NONE.

    NADA.

    While the proof of God is that there is a Bible that somehow came to be, and archaelogists have found many places identified in the Bible, like the Tomb of the Patriarchs, Herod's Temple, Peter's tomb, etc.

    If aliens lived ANYWHERE we would know it by now because they would have contacted us.

    1. The Bible isn't evidence, it's hearsay.

    2. To the best of my knowledge military jets have never chased Jesus.

    God and alien civilizations are not the same thing.

    The Bible isn't proof that God exists.

    Humans are proof that life can exist on planets, and with the number of planets out there, the chances that there is life on at least one of them is actually quite high.

    Maybe it has to do with the trillions of planets circling stars within habitable zones?

    Wheres your evidence for this god? Oh'yess, a book written by goat herders.

    "If aliens lived ANYWHERE we would know it by now because they would have contacted us." Dude, how the fuck do you know this? If you do, I'm onboard as your first hand special forces, personal protection, SS, ultimate body guard. Deal??

    Yes, because we're aliens to others and we haven't contacted anyone.

    1. Who are the scientists that declare there must be millions of alien civilizations in the universe?
    2. How do you know they are atheists?
    3. You would need to define god before showing proof of god. There often seems to be some disagreement about what constitutes god.
    4. You should probably be saying evidence rather than proof. You believe the Bible is evidence of god. I'm not sure what the statement "a Bible that somehow came to be" means; it came to be when it was written? You seem to imply that it couldn't have been written but had to be created by god.
    5. That places written about in the Bible exist seems like pretty scant evidence of god. Places written in most Stephen King books exist, but that doesn't mean I should start believing in monsters. :)
    6. Why would you assume that if aliens existed, they would have contacted us? The universe is vast, almost beyond human comprehension. There could be tons of alien civilizations out there without they or us ever noticing each other. Besides, it's also possible aliens have attempted to contact us and we did not realize it. It isn't as if aliens are likely to be sending messages out in human language over devices compatible with human technology.

    Can't even contact our selves. I'm not being sharky, just a comment out of my pea brain.
