Actually, this has nothing to do with faith.
Aliens have landed on the moon. We broadcasted it live.
Alien probes have been driving around the surface of Mars for years. We get video feeds from them all the time.
The fact that YOU are unaware of NASA's accomplishments does not negate the fact that they happened.
You're ridiculous. None of this happened and you hallucinated it all.

That's a fact that even you know. But you also believe it's cooler to lie to people about aliens and make yourself feel important.

How sad that the wonders withing reality itself aren't sufficient for you, that you must invent things and believe them.

That you don't hide your location is meaningless. Who cares, this is a discussion forum, not a "be like Stephanie' forum.

We humans are the aliens, on both the moon and Mars.

I hallucinated the moon landing that took place in '69, YEARS before I was born?

I hallucinated the Mars Rover program and all the pictures it has sent back to Earth?

No. Sorry. NONE of this was hallucination.

These things happened and I'm not responsible for any of them. I'm not lying, you can look it up. And it doesn't make me sound or feel important because this is COMMON knowledge.

No one out there, except you apparently, thinks that I'm the source of info about the Apollo program. No one attributes me with any sort of credit about reporting the EXTREMELY WELL DOCUMENTED Mars rover program.

The closest I come to being related to these projects is the fact that I live a few towns away from where JPL is located. They are the ones who actually STEER the rovers.

I don't work there myself. I don't know anyone who does. However, I do compliment them on their outstanding accomplishments.

The fact that you are a moon landing denier and now, apparently, a Mars rover denier, just goes to show us all how utterly stupid you actually are.

What are you smoking?
The aliens I'm talking about can't "invade" Earth. You and I are ON Earth already. I hope that isn't news to you.
Humans however are not native to the moon or Mars. Therefore, aliens - HUMANS - have visited both the moon and have sent probes to Mars.
Really, this isn't that complicated. AM got it RIGHT AWAY. Even LINKED you articles of NASA's work.
how fucking stupid are you people.
I keep telling people Skippy is pretty stupid.(shrug)

<quoted text>Study Biblical History and you will find that it already has been done;and,not just casual contact but actual copulation with off spring.
"Biblical history" is an oxymoron. Most of the key events of the bible are not corroborated by any non-biblical source. Examples: the supposed flood, which is not corroborated by any physical evidence or any other accounts, the plagues of Egypt and the exodus and drowning of the Pharaoh's army, all of which remarkable events would certainly have found their way into Egyptian history had they occurred. The destruction of Sodom and Gommorah, which is not reported outside the bible, and not supported by any archeological evidence. The 40 years the jews supposedly wandered in the desert, yet managed to leave not a single trace behind.

<quoted text>The Noahic flood is an archaeological fact.
Do you have any idea how much water would be required to flood the earth sufficiently to cover the mountaintops?

The radius of earth (mean) is 3,959 miles. The volume of a sphere is 4/3 times pi times the radius of the sphere. That gives us a volume of 259,923,245403.51 cubic miles.

Now add just 4 miles to that radius to cover the mountaintops. There's lots of peaks greater than 20,000 feet, so I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here. Using a radius of 3,963 miles gives us a sphere with a volume of 260,711,886,824.77 cubic miles.

The difference, which would be the additional volume of water needed to cover the earth so all the mountains are covered would be 788,641,421.26 cubic miles of water. To convert that to cubic feet of water, 1 cubic miles = 1.10111715 × 10^12 US gallons. That comes to 868,386,594,000,000,000,000 gallons. That's over and above the water already in every ocean, river, lake, stream and puddle already in existence. Where would all that water have come from? Where would all that water go afterward?

The math shows the breathtaking absurdity of the flood story.

Or roughly a tiny fraction of the amount of water needed to generate a one step homeopathic remedy.

If we're gonna beat up on the math deficient, let's get em all at the same time.:)

No.

Nothing can prove there is no God.

Hence the concept is not falsifiable, and therefore not scientific.

No dogma involved and no fundamentalism either. In fact no "ism" at all. Most likely, simply a misunderstanding. But pay no attention to me, jump to those impossible conclusions, jump!

How about 6,000 years of no evidence for his/her/its validity. I don't buy those old goat herder campfire tales.
