Quote# 80914

For most of the 20th century, scientists typically believed in the existence of extraterrestrial life, despite the lack of any reference to it in the Bible. After spending many billions of dollars looking for such life, and investigating countless reports of UFOs, no such life has been found.

Not true.

We found that bacteria fossil.

Not really little green men, but it still counts.

It is pretty arrogant to believe that in this vast universe, our planet contains the only life. Then again, it's also arrogant to think you can rewrite a 2000 year old book to suit your worldview.

" ... the lack of any reference to it in the Bible."

However, reference to extraterrestrial life IS actually included in the Bible, it's just that it remains invisible at the moment, rather like God. One day, it will reveal itself to have been there all along, but only AFTER extraterrestrial life is actually discovered.

The Bible is actually a pretty accurate guide to future events, but only if your able to read invisiblese.

Oh goody, a new release from Andy Shatfly.

I will point out just for starters that there is also no reference in the Babble to computers, electric fans, and cigarettes - all of which I am using as I sit here and type. Oh yes, and swimming trunks and logoed T shrts, which is what I'm wearing right now.

You see, Andy, what you won't find in the Babble is almost exactly every fucking thing that you will find outside of the little shoebox in which your mind lives. On the other hand, many of the things that are in the Babble are not to be found anywhere - talking serpents and four-legged insects, for instance.

So, really, you should now shut the fuck up.

Yet.

Billions of stars in our galaxy alone, any number of which might have planets orbiting around them. Chances are, there is life out there. (But I don't blame the aliens for staying the hell away from Earth.)

So there's nothing in the Heavens, Andy?

I live in the UK and I can access Conservapedia with Firefox 3. You must have a very strange firewall. Perhaps you're lucky!"

I'll give it a shot (I use Firefox too; IE as well, but FF has a plugin for downloading which includes a nifty DL accelerator) via a proxy.

But I wonder if he's blocked specific IP ranges or even ISPs - in my case Karoo (the ISP of Kingston Communications here in Hull; the only part of the UK where you won't find a British Telecom phone, due to KC being owned by the council (even though it was floated on the stock market, they kept 51% of the shares.) Thus it's the only phone company of it's kind on the planet.

--EDIT--

Tried a proxy, and I have access (I won't say which one; just Google 'Proxies', then click the 2nd that comes up, and select the 2nd on that list).

@Night Jaguar

What about the poor Conservative Christians who live in the areas of the US that you've blocked, Andy? (it's obvious his Americentricism knows no bounds, re. IP blocking other countries, especially if he gets pissed at 'British' English spelling on Conservapoodia)? Think of the poor isolated fundies there, who thirst for your brand of unbiased righteousness! [/sarcasm]

You really don't have the faintest idea just how vast our own galaxy is, let alone the rest of the universe, do you?

If this had come from a fourteen year old homeschooled kid this would have been a lot less depressing.

Andy Scatfly... have you any idea how many little Europa sized moons with oceans or Titans with coverings of atmosphere can be hiding in this galaxy? Even Earth sized planets are difficult to spot outside our solar system. A three eyed Joe could be mooning us and we wouldn't know it.

"For most of the 20th century, scientists typically believed in the existence of extraterrestrial life, despite the lack of any reference to it in the Bible."

Uh, Andy, do you realize that some people interpret Ezekiel 1:1–3:27 as a description of an encounter of the third type? :P

(Of course, a saner/secular reading of the Book of Ezekiel suggests that Ezekiel simply suffered from temporal lobe epilepsy)

Is there any way we could get Andy Schlafly banned from Conservapedia?

@Adrian:

I've never read Ezekiel. But I have to ask, does it read as much like a bad acid trip as Revelation? (Yes, I know Revelation was written as a political metaphor. I know the weirdness of Revelation is mostly symbolism. I know that most of this symbolism is completely lost on me because I wasn't the intended audience. But to a modern audience it reads like a really bad acid trip.) Given that no Biblical scholar thinks that St. John of Patmos was actually hallucinating (to the best of my knowledge), I have to wonder just how weird Ezekiel is. Because if it is anywhere near a weird as Revelation . . . I'm almost afraid of reading it.

Speaking of aliens and the Bible, though, I have to admit that if the miraculous events of the Bible actually happened, I think it's probably more likely that it was aliens playing tricks on the stupid humans.

"Hey, look at these guys. They haven't even invented digital watches yet, they still think sundials are cool. We could screw up their brains so bad!"

(Of course, I think it's a lot more likely that the miraculous and supernatural events in the Bible never happened. But if they did, I'd find aliens to be a more believable explanation than God.)

The bible doesnt mention other countries, neither does it predict the future. Oh and while im At it, the bible said something about UFOs in Ezekiel.

Bacteria has been found on some other planets. That is life.

@Angua:

Well, it's... pretty out there ^^" It starts with Ezekiel seeing God and four angels that look more like Eldritch Abominations than anything else, he's made to eat a scroll then abducted and treated in a pretty BDSM-y way (immobilized, forced to lay on his right side 390 days, then 40days on his left side, made to eat barley-and-dung cakes,...) and given a prediction that reads like the ranting of a bipolar psychopath (well, this is OT God, so...) about Yahweh sending calamities against the Hebrews so they'd know he's their lord. Or something... It's pretty brain-farty. And there is so much blood, gore and talk about whores and whoredom that it could have been written by Frank Miller.

And the evidence for computers in the Bible?. At least, be consequent.
