Aliens and evolution

Jun 19, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Washington Times

DENTON, Texas, June 19, 2012 - Aliens are ingrained in our cultural psyche. They abound in books, movies, radio, and a thousand theories about the extra-terrestrial, little green men, UFO sightings, abductions, Area 51, and Roswell.

just some thoughts.
Still just a bandaide. The problem are the medical facilities, you know, hospitals, doctors, and such. It's not a skin deep problem, it's a core problem.

I'm sorry that you have no proof of god and that you're a proven liar. But it's your problem and not the problem on atheists..

I do. His name's Brian G. His position was don't take his tax money, don't ask for charity from Christians either. Go beg to the atheists instead. Or die in the hospital room. Whichever.

<quoted text>I oppose killing Jews, children and the unborn. The Dude's example of Nazi experimental tests prove he doesn't understand good science.
Again, you either misunderstand or ignore your own posting history. Is science "amoral" as you said or is it not?

For example: The Samurai developed a mannequin over the years made of bamboo and other plant materials which accurately represents the toughness of normal human limbs. You know how they figured it out? Trial and error, based on criminal human test subjects. Strictly scientifically speaking, that's good science involving successful series of experiments.

Ethically speaking however that's another matter entirely.

But as someone who has presumably travelled by plane at least once in his life you are ultimately on the receiving end of those fruits of labour which I mentioned back here:

There have been lander missions to the moon, Titan, Venus, Mercury some comets and asteroids and we've never found evidence of extraterrestrial life. Belief in alien life forms is based on faith, not scientific evidence.
I don't advocate stopping space exploration and I don't advocate stopping freedom of religion. There's as much evidence for God as there is for extraterrestrial life: none.
And yet still only ONE of those concepts is scientific. Care to take a guess which one it is?

Atheism and theism are both irrelevant to science. You wanna cry about "science trying to destroy God" then I suggest you take up that conversation with Skippy.

You did. Apparently.

I've been trying to get you to explain the details of that experiments for months, remember?

I thought the definition was merely inadequate? If it isn't then it is testable. Then we can determine the likelihood of possibility, yes?

As from here it looks like you're trying to shut down all possibility before likelihood can even be addressed.

<quoted text>Then, can you explain the goal of creating life from inert matter or the faith in the existence of extraterrestrial life? Don't you want to use science to subvert belief in God by trying to prove life on Earth isn't unique and the creation of life is a lab procedure?
Neither of these would falsify the existence of a God.

Neither, Nazi human experimentation isn't science and neither is faith. At least, religious believes know they aren't basing their decisions on science.

Of course it is. It's unethical science, but it's still science.

I doubt that there is a woman willing to be labeled as co-owned by you. Whether you can understand this or not, is debatable, but property does not include women. Even the slaver doesn't "own"' he may have enslaved humans, but he does not own them.
