I don’t see either as being dependent on the other. In other words, you can believe in God and not in extraterrestrial life. Many religious people do in fact hold that view. On the other hand, you can believe in extraterrestrial life and not believe in God. I know many people who hold that view.... Continue Reading →
We have no proof life exists anywhere in the universe other than Earth. Given a planet with the right conditions, life can spring from matter and eventually evolve into something greater is the wet dream of science, but still an unproven theory.

Great question. The jury is still out on that one. I’m really concerned about why did God create idiots, AKA jerks! See the illustration below!
Some of my readers embrace my pessimism. Some hate it! Finding life on other planets is the Holy Grail of science. The final punch in the age-old fight between scientists and creationists. It runs deep. It would finally prove life can exist elsewhere. To date no proof exists. There are candidates right here in our own... Continue Reading →
