I for one would enjoy the butthurt emanating from the mythology fanboys the moment this was announced :)

Don't be daft.

Translation: "I'm jamest, and I'm about to say something daft."

The existence of life ANYWHERE within the universe would do NOTHING to disprove the existence of God. At best, it would disprove the existence of a God who was shallow enough to invest everything into one species (and even one subset of that species) on a small planet in a small corner of the universe.

So, not NOTHING then, by your own admission. Because that's the sort of self-centered nonsense that most of the people around you who believe in God think.

Yet, God itself did not parrot that narrative, did it?

It's sort of hard to "parrot a narrative" when you don't exist.

At some point you might wake the fuck up to the realisation that you're questioning humanity/religion here, not God.

God is, by all available evidence, a human concept and nothing more. So yes, he realizes it as does everyone else here. Maybe now you realize it?

But somehow I fucking doubt it, as ever since I've known you you've been parroting the same old bullshit about how science disproves the religious/human version of God as though the religious/human version of God was absolute in the sense of God's valuation/meaning and as though science was absolute in the sense of God's subsequent poverty.

You can believe in whatever goofy shit suits your fancy, as you're wont to do, but to act like anyone else needs to give it any credence at all is utterly pretentious. If what Cali has said doesn't apply to your goofy idea of God then he's not talking to or about you, so instead of getting offended on behalf of other people try sitting down and having a word with yourself. After all you're the only one here, right?

The universe would be the same short distance from me and would remain the same temperature.
I'd go to Mars if it were practical, safe, and affordable to do so.

I agree with this stuff.

But, it will be fascinating to watch the credulous try to weasel talk that shit into their cosmology.

I'd offer help to any newly incredulous people who asked me.

Too bad this thread turned into one about religion. Was that the premise all along? Hypothetical aliens are a much richer topic. :snooty:

I'd like to think that post was an attempt at acknowledging that.
