    Yes, I know people who are heavily into paganisim, but all it gives them is a similar sense of fatalism. When something goes wrong, they don't say "I screwed up" or "If Id tried harder I could have avoided that", they just say "It wasn't meant to be", or indeed, "It's an omen".

    When taken to that extreme it seems like a reallly egocentric worldview, where everything that happens in the world centres around the life of the believer.

    You're going to become a Scientologist? ;)

    I think not mentioning other planets or forms of the life would be leaving a lot out.

    I wonce herd that even if the odds were 100 million to 1 of other life forms existing out there, that there should be at least 10,000 of them.

    This thread is less like a debate and more like a support group for atheists and agnostics : p

    Well, i think a lot of people think we are alone in the universe. That a god created us and us alone. It might be because if that wasn't the case, you have to explain why a god would make an Adam and Eve on other planets.

    Life on other planets helps support the notion that it's possible for life to evolve.

    Cat Fuzz, I consider you reasonably intelligent, normally your arguments are readable and you have some ability to communicate.

    Humans aside, do you really see no similarities in fossil records? I think it's a good theory for explaining species deviation. There are species that look related, and given time, they change. It's just like human behavior, you're away from someone for awhile, they can meet with factors that cause them to change. I'm NOT saying Humans have to be from monkeys, God can still come in and put us on this earth. But for other species, it's a good theory for explaining how they change.
