Monkeytits, what the hell difference does it make it if E.T. is out there or not. There’s no tangible evidence to support it anyway . We would be more likely to find Atlantis than Vulcan. And what the hell is the age of reason? I just don’t think that people in general can stand the idea of NOTHING else existing in the universe besides us. Helps cope with God denial.
Monkeytits? Was that supposed to be an insult? Nice try choirboy, now go back to your Priest, I’m sure he misses you. Incidentally, I don’t know whose quote you are butchering at the bottom of your posts but please, fix your puncuation and grammar.
As to what would be considered the “content” of your post:
What difference it make I would think is obvious. If we were to come to know that there was life at all outside this planet, intelligent or your own variety, it would dramatically and quickly change the face of belief on this planet.
As to your question about the age of reason, Thomas Paine wrote about it in 1794 in a paper called “THE AGE OF REASON”, which refers to a time which logic and reason supercede religion, which we are in the process of doing now. It followed the dawn of Newtonian physics and the butchery of the christian 14th century. (You oughtta try this thing called google…)
Furthermore, your debate is not arguable, due to your need to cower behind your opinion. When one uses the phrase “I just think” or “I just don’t think (in your case, you could end the sentence with a period right there)”, they have declared themselves unable and unworthy of debate, because I will not try to change your mind about the fact that you think whatever it is you NEED to think in order to justify your fantasy about the universe. Frankly I am not sure why you bothered to post on this thread.
In addition, what I find comically ironic about you and your post is that you seem to think that humans entertain or hope for the possibility og alien life as a way to deny god!
In fact, it is your own denial of the truth which drives your pathetic little brain to subscribe to and validate these fantasies in the first place. Have a nice life smart ass.

Oh yeah, and you really ought to read “The End of Faith”, which might retard the fit of optimism you had which suggested you may be able to post here without getting intellectually incinerated.
