But ignorance would not allow you guys to think straight. The universe, the elements and all the physical features of the earth, is a proof of God's existence.
There we go again: then tell us how this is to be proven!
Observation: the universe. elements and all the physical features of the earth.
Assumption: they are a god.(not even supposing the 'same god')
Test... proof...falsify ???

The ultimate proof of gods existence.
Any idea how long this has occupied people allready?

And how come you are not capable to distinguish between a god and all that the creation stories are and do, and that this might imply it's own evolutionary timescale?

The most extreme consequence of your simplism, would be that if the universe would implode, this god would cease to exist.

Christine M has allready pointed out that E=Mc^2 is the law that governs our existence.
Therefore we are.
Define god as: A source of limetless energy and so would make our existence impossible. E would no longer be defined as it is, nor would we be!

So that definition is out.

If you say you have experienced this yourself how come they didn't give you their code? or are you trying to figure that out still?

Comprehension on a human scale......not good. Its scary woodstick, its terrifying. Whats worse, a story about a guy that gets nailed to a cross or the human ape connection? How about the alien engineered human animal floating around on this big alien science experiment. That sounds a lot better and with to many galaxies in deep space to count its the most obvious choice. Tin foil......human comprehension strikes again!

I see.
So our future is going to contain a lot of words again.

Anyone experienced in necro-reading?
Given that we'll all be dead.

Or following Cybele: experience in energy-reading?

But frankly it will not make one bit of difference, whether we get a code or contact.

I liked the hitch-hikers guide to the galaxy!

You are turning it into a night-mare...but that somehow will make everything better.

Definitely a christian upbringing shimmering through.

Thats like asking why God has never returned or why apes dont talk. Dont know that answer. Dont worry the Govt and scientist are still working on that issue(alien contact and reverse engineering) behind walls. They know that the humans of today cant handle their world turned upside down with tin foil all over the place. And, from the reaction on topix humans will never be ready. Just go pray and go to the zoo and watch you long lost relatives behind bars......hopeless creatures!

Seriously, humans want to be remembered for nailing some guy to a cross or having ape relatives? Lets be remembered as alien engineered humanoids.....much better! Cybele is right. With all the negative energy from the human animal contact or a code is non existant.

500 years ago if woodtick would have stood up and said, "One day we shalt fly to the moon". Woodtick would have been stoned. Today if the word alien is mentioned its the same old story, grab some tinfoil, swamp gas, light refraction, crazy people, lights in the sky.....on and on. We are not the ones talking to a ghost(GOD) and having the ghost talk back. If someone says they saw God, everybody on earth would believe them. Its ok, we don't live in the past, we are looking light years ahead....the future looks bright. Deep space is the code we live by!

So on the other hand, sitting on my knees in my tin-foiled kitchen, behind the third cupboars door at floor-level, because that gives the best reception.
Was funny to do when we had oldfashioned communication devices with bad reception.
But woodtick is right, we might be aware there is an option, but not knowing is all the fun. It begets you tin-foiled kitchens that were very low-maintenance in cleaning for a while.

That's the implication from reading...you all have to be dead and then read.

I don't know how you read (interpreted) that.

Now we moved on to SERIOUS.

Ah well it was fun while it lasted.
Back to reality. And arguments from sheer contrariness and pigheadedness.

Right. No just bow your head and pray for another 2000 years. Than go to the zoo with tin foil on your head and watch your not so distant cousins(apes) up close. Because creation and evolution are one in the same animal. Apes to Bible who knew?

Scientist or for that matter anyone that wants to be intellectually honest strives to find proper answers.
Convincing reliable proof with progeny attached.
I can have alternative ideas about many interpretations of texts or history that are taken for granted and you tube mainstream memes, but it's a long proces.
So you'll have to wait a bit longer. ;P

I guess i get this...except for the tinfoil head only in the zoo and not while reading the christian bible.

Or when on the forum when you post...

(hmm, do i even have tinfoil in the house? We have silicon nowadays.
Gives you fireproof and arctic resistant breasts.)
