Produce definitive evidence for a deity, and I will of course believe in it.

Yep. A lot of people assume that atheism means "against god," when for most people I think it just means a simple lack of belief. I believe that most atheists would, if presented with evidence for god, adjust their beliefs appropriately. Some might even welcome evidence for eternal paradise. Imagine that!

Spot on, though its safe to infer there's no god with arguments from logic, evidence and probability.

There are "anti-theists" out there - but I think they're mostly objecting to the theists, not the deities. themselves. And the ones I know are rational - given enough evidence, they would not, I think, insist that a demonstrated reality didn't exist.

Farscape has aliens. It's one of the best.
My favorite franchises are Farscape, Firefly, Star Trek, Stargate, Dune, and Fringe.
Firefly is the highest quality science fiction series out there, as far as I'm concerned.
Dr Who (new), Haven, Arrow, Dollhouse, Eureka, Games of Throne, Grimm... these days we are spoiled.

But Firefly was and is number one.

BTW Did you know that they may start up again?

I thought that Farscape was Australian...
I also find it interesting, but cool, that Firefly has no aliens in it.

I am unsure but it doesn't look promising.
Seems as if the comic will continue but a reboot for the show...
