Wow. I'd like to see the thought processes that led to this gem. It would be like reading the descriptions of the Great Old Ones by H.P. Lovecraft, only more disturbing.

Well, I meant the actual thought processes going on in his head; how he made the connections he did, his understanding of the words involved, and so on and so forth.
But that stuff you posted is still some pretty fucked up shit.

Evolution has something called 'evidence'

I suppose people don't bother considering if humanity was created by a god or aliens because explanation like that is rather useless, unlike theory of evolution, which we actually can use for something.

Theory of evolution doesn't contradict an alien genesis theory. Nor does it preclude creationism. In the same vein, alien genesis does not contradict creationism -- the former could simply be the transport mechanism of the latter.
All three attempt to prove different things, so each should stand on its own.
Now, where is the evidence for alien genesis or creationism?

Thanks, Yahweh, for presenting Key's entire post; I realize that you try to keep entries short and punchy, but I think the full post is really essential here. Anyone who tosses off the professional opinion of the entire scientific establishment of the last 140 years ON A SCIENTIFIC SUBJECT as a mere \"appeal to popularity\" is so twisted, he could bill himself as a mental contortionist.
Of course, one could try to make a case that it is an \"argument from authority,\" but then there's still all that darned evidence on which their authoritative opinion is based -- and to which he seems absolutely oblivious, having referred to ID and evolution as offering \"equally good\" explanations (and apparently being generous enough to allow the UFO crowd into the fray as well). This is one of the funniest, most dazzling pieces of stunted reasoning I have read here yet.

Honestly, I find it much easier to believe extraterrestrials influencing, or even creating life on Earth than I can believe anything having to do with an invisible, omnipotent, unknowable, supreme being creating EVERYTHING.

Science isn't a religion.

Oh for the love of....
Science is not a religion, it is the understanding of the world around us through careful deliberation and application of observable knowledge. We know that when something is dropped, gravity will bring it down. We know that when an object travels at high velocity, it generates heat. We know that magnetic force is more powerful then gravitational pull. Belief does not factor into it. Magnets don't work because of faith, we don't pray to the LHC, and nobody sings hymns to Bohr and the Curies. Religion involves taking things on faith, evidence unseen. You have faith that there's some all-knowing, all-loving deity in the sky. You have faith that some intangible part of you survives the death of your body. These things cannot be seen, measured, nor proven.
