    Try and talk around it as much as you want, but the fact still remain. We have zero proof of life existing and you and/or the Scientific community believe in alien life forms existing with no shred of evidence. You are a hypocrite to mock people who have faith in God, yet you believe in E.T.

    Quote whoever you want. Provided whatever graphical statists you want. Its all bullshit, since none of it can be proven. It all boils down to faith.

    Did you ever think that you've never come across evidence because you never wanted to? That you couldn't or wouldn't recognize it because you don't want it to be real?

    Did you not watch the video of Carl Sagan explaining the Drake Equation? Sagan clearly indicated that there is a chance that we might be alone in the Universe.

    Like Carl Sagan, I don't claim to know that aliens exist. I just think that the presence of life on Earth strongly suggests that life may exist on planets other than Earth. Religious people, however, claim to know that God exists and often won't even consider the possibility that it does not.

    I don't have any problem wth people engaging in speculation about God's existence. In fact, I'm completely in favor of that sort of speculation. I just don't think that people should base belief systems on speculation.

    I can say with great certainty that when the last Communist nation falls to Democracy - installed there by our benevolent society, there will still be about 3 billion human beings living under various forms of communism, under the guise of Christianity.

    In his book God is not Great, Christopher Hitchens makes a very compelling argument that totalitarianism and religion are derived from the same impulses...

    If evidence of God cannot be supplied, I would be willing to settle for a theory of God.

    Hitchens is a drunken buffoon. I could down a few glasses of scotch and write a book about how atheists and anarchists are cut from the same cloth, too.

    I used to like Hitchens. He is sometimes very eloquent. Now he's just become a Neo-con talking boy. Sad really. At least his brother has not lost his mind.
    He doesn't come across as a happy atheist at all.

    Define what you would accept as evidence.
