Odds are that there is other life within the universe. How can there not be? But to calculate it or try to even get close with the Drake equation is just a guess. There's too many unknowns. Too many variables. But even if extraterrestrial life can be proven, why would that have any effect on the Bible? How would that be relevant? After all doesn't the Bible speak of ALL creation? Did God just make the Earth and stop?
Just like Drake's equations, there's far too many unknowns to figure out God's plan for the rest of the universe as we "intelligent" folk sit here on Topix not even being able to come to any agreement as to what happened here on this ball of dirt.

If there is a god , there is multiple abundant life of that I have no doubt.

My calculation does not assume there is any help.

So Al if life does have help.
It should be vast and abundant.

And if it is not, god is a poor thinker.

After all if life was created , the god is a farmer.

Latest reports say that mankind is not correcting itself fast enough to undo the damage created, and about to be created. We're like a snowball going down a hill. We may not see all of it's terrible effects in our lifetime, but our children most certainly will.

Look not to mass media for wisdom, but rather the history of known factors. But we also have the one advantage no other ever possessed before us. We know it.

The Bible describes a God who created the universe for one specific species of mammal in our particular planet. Further, the Bible says this one species of mammal was created in the image of this deity, which is very exclusive of any other life form. Galileo made the church unhappy by proving there were other planets, which was a big blow to what the Bible says (that the sky is a fixed dome). Then of course Darwin came along and proved that species evolve from earlier forms, which shot another hole through it. If alien life, especially sentient life, were discovered elsewhere, it would be yet another nail in the coffin I'm afraid. Then again, as far as I see it, the fact that there are other sentient species besides us on this planet is problematic for the Bible, which says animals have no souls, and were put here for our entertainment, enslavement, and to consume.

I don't. I look at everything, especially books. Anthony Leiserowitz wrote a really good book on the topic. You can see his interview here from PBS;

You have the problem of interpretation there, that's understandable.
You are also are a vegetarian, meaning you do not prey on animals to survive. For those who's predation is limited to the supermarket produce section , I wouldn't expect you to understand or agree with my practice.

God wrote the Bible. Jesus is still teaching.
Wrong. If you think this, then you surely have missed out on alot of Bible study, teachings by Jesus, and have read way to much into what you do read.

a. Men wrote the bible, as "God" only (supposedly) hand wrote teh "Ten Commandments". But since we don't have those, this is all speculation still.

b. Jesus supposedly died in the 1st C. Can you please direct me to where he is actively teaching?
- your analogy, in that Jesus is still teachign is false. Men teach other men about Jesus. And those men have even failed at doing that, as they have only taught a portion of what Jesus taught.

If you are so sure of these actions that you have claimed.....

a. citation that verifies any god wrote the Bible.
b. Show me where Jesus is teaching today.

Exactly. Well said. The really big question is why did life need to happen? What ever caused life, why did it need to create life, what was lacking?
<quoted text>If global warming does us as humans in then I agree, we'll probably never know. But if we can get past the global warming issue (which I doubt) then mankind will always be searching for answers to anything and everything that it does not yet know.
The earth will heal its self, and start over again like it has before. If we as humans are part of that, who knows, but in the 5 billion years that it has been here, we are just a moment in time.

Practice of what? Owning guns, or are you referring to hunting specifically? I don't see the point of hunting, unless you just like torturing animals for fun. I mean, for the vast majority of people, if you insist on eating meat, there are plenty of markets and restaurants to accommodate that.

Not to mention the large rocks that are out there that we dont even know about yet, like the one a few weeks ago. We are just along for the ride.

Sure, once its source of injuries (mankind) are removed.

Is the potential for animals preying on your that great? Now I'm intrigued. Where do you live and what animals are you referring to?

Your biased opinion is working against you. Your "assault" rifle ban doesn't stand a chance in your liberal-democrat controlled Senate. The previous ban did nothing to reduce crime, and neither will this one. Learn from history, idiot.
