Most scientist actually believe life can survive in places other than earth. Many believe there is other life in the universe and some believe there is other life within our solar system. Some think it may be microscopic organisms like bacteria. Some think there may be more than that.
So fact is they would not be looking for other life if they did not think it existed.
yes, all the evidence clearly suggests there should be other life out there.

Biologically speaking, the human body is nothing but an elaborate vessel optimized for the growth and spread of our microbial inhabitants several hundred microbial species numbering in the hundreds of trillions that call our body home! It turns out that we are only 10 percent human: for every human cell that is intrinsic to our body, there are about 10 resident microbes yuck! Clearly, bacteria are beneficial and essential to our little lives.
Sorry dude I'm 100% human and feel so sorry 4 u 10% human puss bags .
No worry though , my Katana can remove your 90% rotten crap in a hurry.

There is no credible evidence that God exists.
There is no credible evidence that God cannot exist.
There is no credible evidence that life exists elsewhere.
There is no credible evidence that life cannot exist elsewhere.
So far, all our efforts to find any life other than on Earth have been inconclusive. And we must have covered at least 0.0000000001% of the observable universe so far, which keeps expanding. We have a long way to go before we can rule out anything.
Your best argument for evidence against God is a book written by people that would be considered uneducated compared to the knowledge we have now. Just the word of people, who aren't perfect and make mistakes, cannot be considered evidence for or against anything in science.
Actually, the bible is only evidence against that particular god, which the bible proves cannot be true.

the evidence against the other man-made gods is in those god myths and legends.

as to date, not one teensy shred of evidence for any god, gods or goddesses anywhere. yes, we only know of a speck of the universe, but wouldn't a real god be in all of the universe?

That's called the 'Deist' position. A 'God' Made the universe, started life and then floated away, never to be seen again.

If you can't hate was does not exist,,, how can you poke fun at what does not exist? So in other words you say you don't believe in them, they don't exist but yet you poke fun at something that you believe isn't there. What does your shrink think about that?
Oh come now, this is too easy. If you know (or, if you prefer, believe) Mickey Mouse is a fictional character, but someone insists he not only believes Mickey Mouse is real, but that he obeys Mickey Mouse's every order -- wouldn't you make fun of Mickey Mouse too? Wouldn't that be a more-than-sane response to an obviously insane situation? Clearly the point isn't to abuse a non-existent Mickey Mouse; the point is to disabuse a confused person of the notion that Mickey Mouse exists and is infallible.

WOW!! "For the previous 8 billion or so it was doing the same thing it's doing now"? That's brilliant! Just brilliant!!
A thread about biological evolution where also the evolutionists say that the Universe is 13.7 billion years old, the earth is 4.7 billion years old, life arose from a muddy soup of nothing, and that is where life came from thus we have been evolving since. So it is relevant to evolution because according to most here that is when things started that led up to evolution.
Oh come now, characterizing abiogenesis as "life arose from a muddy soup of nothing" is a little silly, isn't it? Surely an intelligent person wouldn't have to stoop to that kind of obvious strawmannery. Let's hear your (implied) objections intelligently stated.

It's also completely reasonable to separate a discussion of evolution from theoretical physics. Of course it is. The point you make is like arguing that you have to perfectly understand neolithic history in order to explain the Second Sino-Japanese War. It's not that understanding one or the other is *bad*, it's just a bit silly to insist upon the one to understand the other...

I agree. it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that!
There was this one guy that walked on H20........As a matter of fact it doesnt take human thought at all....human reasoning doesnt have a clue....its simply humans believing their own BS! As usual! Humans will if they dont become extinct, control all earthly bound things.......Now, take an advanced species thats been around the universe for millions of years.....What might they control?

Humans have their technology(fission, fusion) to destroy all life on earth...in reality they are doing it without knowing it. What if there is an advanced race millions of years old utilizing their mind boggling star technology....building galaxies?Humans will one day control the weather......the others control the cosmos.....makes sense.

You,of course, will go on right where you are, in the groove of Christianity, never learning more, unwilling to let your mind loose and explore the science behind our beautiful and wonderful world.

Other people might listen too and understand what is being said in the video, and all of a sudden realize this is an entirely different world than what religion describes.

They will find that they don't need the crutch of a phony God and all that that entails. Their mind will be free of a 3,000+- year old scam.

To the best of my knowledge there is no proof at all that the Bible or religion is true. No proof whatsoever.
