Nope...I never said that I know better than anyone, but you do...you say that christianity has the correct "god" and that space science is phony. I'm not the one claiming to be correct, you are.

Thats what I see a lot of on here. Atheists make up a very small percentage of the population yet somehow they think they know better. There are probably more people that believe in aliens than there are atheists.
At least those that believe in aliens are working with the FACT (a fact is actual evidence)... which is diametrically opposed to "faith" (pure assumption) that life DOES exist in this universe!

The fact that life exists on this planet... a planet orbiting and ordinary star that is one of billions of stars in an ordinary galaxy... a galaxy that is one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe.... it's highly unlikely that we are alone.

I'm an atheist.... and I believe Earth is not the only planet in the universe that supports life.... although I don't believe we've been visited

Exactly how does one 'acknowledge' something for which no evidence exists?

sorry but you no longer have any credibility. You think billions of people are delusional which makes you either in total denial or brainwashed or both.

Yep-- not even close.

And if you remove all the **reasonable** religions, who **accept** and embrace the findings of science, including evolution?

Then the numbers in his cult are less than 20% of the world...

I became a Christian because I knew there had to be a God and that there was a purpose in life.

Yes, actually... you did.
