Do you believe in the existence of life beyond Earth? In the infinite vastness of space, wouldn't it be arrogance NOT to believe?

You cannot accept a theory as possible unless it is proven true through scientific method.

And you cannot believe something actually exists unless you have concrete proof of its existence.

Isn't this what Liberals always say to disprove the existence of God? God's existence can't be proven so God couldn't possibly exist.

Well how come Liberals embrace things like evolution, aliens, and global warming, then? No proof of any of those things, but Liberals accept them as gospel.

That's because Liberals will believe in anything that contradicts God, because they hate Christians.

Pick up a freshman philosophy book and you will see that the Liberals tailor their arguments specifically to attack Christianity.

Evolution and global warming are based on scientific research, extraterrestrial life is based on common sense and religion is based on personal beliefs. Political affiliation isn't a part of the equation.

Carl, baby, you must have met up with a real nastyass Liberal at a very tender, impressionable, age. Not all liberals disbelieve the existence of God; nor do they hate Christians in particular. We card-carrying liberals DO have a problem with absolutist all-embracing arguments like yours on ANY subject though.

So religion is just a "personal belief" (i.e., made up) and aliens are "common sense". What objective, open-minded assertions. Clearly your personal politics have nothing to do with it.

And your assertion that "Evolution and global warming are based on scientific research" is utterly and completely laughable.

There is no scientific research on evolution or global warming; both of these are unproven theories. And in fact, if you believe in science, then you cannot accept an unproven theory to be true.

Scientific method is the only way to use science to prove a theory as true, and that is accomplished via experimentation that yields repeatable results. You can look it up if you don't believe me.

There is no such thing as an "evolution experiment" or a "global warming experiment". There are no repeatable results to look at.

Instead what you have is a bunch of educated Academics who think global warming exists because a 10,000-year-old rock is brown instead of grey. And so they use a computer to extrapolate some numbers that look good and support their conclusions, then they put some charts and graphs together and sell it to you as fact.

Which is exactly the reason why global warming is only talked about by politicians and Liberal-leaning, tenured university professors.

If you look at a scientist like Gregor Mendel, you will see right away that there is an authentic scientist. He put pea plants in a pot and watched them grow: repeatable experimental results.

Today's "scientists" do not even grow the proverbial pea plants, instead they take a computer and generate a synthetic "model" of the pea plant, and then they run a thousand synthetic "simulations" which are architected to yield the results the scientist wanted to see.

This is what global warming and evolution are based on, charts and graphs based on simulations and inference, not hard mathematical numbers.

And your line of reasoning is based on bullshit. You have no idea what the scientific method is. Quasi-educated teabagger-speak won't convince anybody.

Liberal mode of operation. Instead of addressing the issue and having a discussion, resort to name calling.

umm... there is tons of evidence that evolution happened. there is no major arguments among the scientific community about that
just type in evidence of evolution into google and over 108,000,000 hits show up. there is amazing Fossil evidence, Homologies (Similar characteristics due to relatedness) and proven examples of natural selection.

you use the term "You cannot accept a theory as possible unless it is proven true through scientific method." as a way to deny extraterrestrial life, but life isn't a theory. if life exists here it can exist elsewhere. if intelligence can exist here it can develop elsewhere as well. and if that intelligent life developed a million (or even a few thousand) years before ours did they would make us look like ants with their technology.

the human race itself should be far more advanced than it is. we lost so much knowledge during the 500+ years of the dark ages. if that never happened we'd be colonizing space by now

You sir, are comparing apples to oranges. Typical of a tea party sympathizer. What about fossilized evidence of bacteria from a meteor that originated on mars? Is bacteria not alive enough for you? Are they not special? What did bacteria do to you as a child to make you so cold and unfeeling for them? And furthermore, is mars not far enough away to not be considered terrestrial?

Gee, carl, but when the evangelical rightist conservatives don't address issues, have discussions, and resort to name calling of liberals that's fine with you, right?

I think my point is pretty clear.

Liberals use the laws of philosophy and science to prove that God doesn't exist and that christians are all nuts.

And then these same "educated" and "enlightened" Liberals turn right around, suspend their own laws of logic and careful scrutiny, and embrace martians and global warming as fact when there is literally no evidence to support these claims.

And anyone who doesn't go along with the program gets shouted down.

carl, you earned this: Repetitious, Redundant, and Juvenile. All you did was essentially restate your original absolutist statement. You do not have a point; you have a biased OPINION of some perceived liberal conspiracy that somehow threatens your personal opinion. In some circles, your position would be referred to as paranoia.

Somebody asks a question about aliens, I answer the question, and then the rest of you spend all your time attacking me.

Because Liberals only hear what they want to hear.

Which is why I keep repeating myself.

Are you dense? The question was whether you believe in extraterrestrial life not if you were conservative, liberal, independent or whatever your political affiliation is.

We live on a small planet, revolving around a small young star, far out on an arm of a small galaxy that contains hundreds of thousands of stars.

Our galaxy is only one of hundreds of thousands that have been counted by astronomers.

It is inconceivable that we are the only sentiment species that has evolved.
