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

    People who believe in UFOs are weird-ohs. I love sci-fi, but we would have much corroborated evidence such as multiple reports confirming the same event.

    Both evos and creation scientists give little support for ETH (extraterrestrial hypothesis).

    Ha ha. Still believing in fake science (pseudoscience). Louis Pasteur debunked it as contamination.

    Number one has nothing to do with number two. So what if there are billions of planets? You have no proof of life elsewhere at all, let alone intelligent life.

    .

    You have no proof of life elsewhere ...


    life is not native to Earth from its primordial beginning -


    That is not true, all life on planet Earth came from elsewhere which is likely all life on Earth began after millions of years of trial and error to emerge as a singular functioning template a sabbath from which the varying life's on earth evolved.

    The weird-ohs continue to come out of the woodwork. She believes that communicating with aliens borders between communications and language. She belongs to a group called METI (Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence) even though there is no evidence of aliens.

    "So SETI is the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. The idea of METI is that if you're going to have a conversation, there are two people who can say hello. SETI is mostly for them [aliens] to say “hello,” and METI is Earth saying “hello.” So it is the idea that to join the conversation, you have to say something."

    The message she says she would send as "Hello" is "1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 (listing prime numbers)."

    What ‘Arrival’ got right about communicating with space aliens

    My take is it's harmless as long as you don't take it seriously.

    Is there a hidden science of earth's moon? Evolutionary thinking leads few secular scientists to wildly hypothesize aliens colonized the moon. It helps explains the mysteries of the moon such as it's just in the right orbit and its size away from the earth and sun to make life habitable on earth. It is the right size and distance to form a perfect solar eclipse. Our moon is fairly large compared to moons of other planets in our solar system.

    Donald Trump seems to think humans can generate economic benefits from partially colonizing the moon while Obama declared we already been there. Is there enough mystery on the moon and inside the moon to explore its geology if minerals such as rustproof iron particles, titanium and other metals really are found there. Is the core hollow? Can we export supplies to the moon so humans can colonize part of it? Will there be any economic benefits for the first colonizers?

    Don't get your hopes up high. A lot could be BS like the moon being hollow ha ha.

    Of course it does, in that the sheer size of the universe would make it improbable that abiogenesis occurred exactly one time.

    And I already said I didn't have proof, no need to repeat my words back to me.

    This sort....


    "In 2007, a number of scientists gathered at a conference titled Beyond Belief: Science, Religion, Reason, and Survival in order to attack religious thought and congratulate one another on their fearlessness in so doing

    In his address, Nobel winning physicist Steven Weinberg declared that Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion In speaking thus, Weinberg was warmly applauded,...

    ....not one member of his audience asking the question one might have thought pertinent: Just who has imposed on the suffering human race poison gas, barbed wire, high explosives, experiments in eugenics, the formula for Zyklon B, heavy artillery, pseudo-scientific justifications for mass murder, cluster bombs, attack submarines, napalm, intercontinental ballistic missiles, military space platforms, and nuclear weapons? If memory serves, it was not the Vatican."

    Atheists need to prove that everything has a natural cause and that there are no eternal ramifications for anything that they may do or they are doomed!
