Try telling someone that the door they are next to has wet paint. NO ONE WILL BELIEVE YOU.....EVERY SINGLE PERSON WILL TOUCH THE DOOR TO SEE IF THE PAINT IS ACTUALL WET.

But that History Channel (WTF....History???) UFO dude with the funky Don King hair and only the one brown suit can say some aboriginal statue is "incontravertible proof" that aliens have visited the Earth.....ZOMFG.

Slaxl: slayer199: I don't believe in Aliens but I believe it's statistically likely there's intelligent life elsewhere in the universe.

So... you do believe in aliens?

No, it's capitalized. What he means is, he denies the existence of the movie franchise.
...or possibly just the 2nd film.

yves0010: But here's the thing people love to argue and not understand. Yes, we as Christians believe God created the universe and everything in it. The question is not yes He did or no he did not that we argue. It is how He did it. Some argue that He created them all in literal 7 days. Others believe that 7 days was a way we, as humans, can understand His power. There are concepts of how we think God sees our timeline. The one I like to think is that he sees our timeline as if He is viewing it from outside of time and sees it all at once. Every branch and every choice, the past, present and future. This allows Him to see and know everything. Giving that, which can explain His all knowing, all powerful, ever presents, we can also say that if science says evolution is true, why can we not say God himself guided life the way He saw fit.

Sorry, but the mental contortions you have to go through to justify your belief are amazing. Why can't you just say "I want to believe in God because I like the idea of God" and be done with it?

Girion47: alwaysjaded: Listverse. Every time I go to that website I spend more time there than I intended. Especially the strange ones.

And I don't know how I feel about intuition. I'm naturally skeptical about most things but I've had far too many, uh, "sudden intense feelings" about something happening for me to just dismiss it.

confirmation bias.

I knew someone would say that.

Aliens: Some sort of life existing somewhere other than this insignificant rock? Mathematically almost certain. Alien visitors here on Earth? Unlikely at best. (Though who, I ask you, planted all those streetlights?)
