    Interesting thought. Do you have one?

    The Bible says that God created man in his own image, and (let's not get into the Adam-God theory here, this is basically for the people who think it is this way) Genesis also implies life on other planets. So when the aliens come, are they going to look just like us? I mean, when the mothership comes down in a crowd of people, and we're all waiting to see little green men appear from out of the steam around the hatch, are we going to be disappointed to see some dude wearing jeans walk out? Wierd...

    yes, because we are all god-fearing bible-believing baptists from Freehold here on the cboards as seen by the "God" thread

    It doesn't even apply that god physically looks like us.

    It's all a big myth. There are no aliens that we've seen
    on earth. Interesting how far something goes when
    there's just shread of scientific evidence.

    Now, I'm no longer a "bible person"... but from what I've deduced, "created in God's image" would seem to mean that man, like God, has a free mind and free will. Well anyway, although I think it's all phooey, I don't think that Genesis implies that God "looks" like us.

    So if multiple beings were created in "God's image", it would just mean that multiple beings have a free will/mind. *shrug*

    Having aliens in space craft ready to destroy us
    is not the most comforting thought.

    If aliens were truly beings that are "alienated" from humans, then what makes you so sure they even know what WAR is?

    It's good to know that BMJ is capable of making absolutely no sense in his posts.

    Keep up the good work!

    What are you talking about? I made/make sense!

    WAR is a human thing... so why do we always depict aliens are war-like?

    No, but they already have come. There's no typical 'alien'. There's heaps of types. Many of them are made up. The most commonly found one is the 'grey' alien. For a full list of the real one's go here. My friends full think i'm dumb for believing all this. I may be. I might not.
    Please direct all complaints regarding this post to the nearest brick wall Have a nice day.

    They might not grasp war exactly the way we do, but considering that the idea of territorial domination applies to MANY lifeforms - not just humans - I definately don't think hostile aliens would be a far-fetched idea.

    Because it is also human nature to try and anthropomorphize all things.

    That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard for numerous reasons.

    1.) There is NO God. We weren't created by some old guy in a white robe. Anyone that believes God does exist isn't thinking very clearly. It's all a dumb fairy tale, and I get so angry at people stupid enough to fall for this crap. God is like Santa Claus. He doesn't exist. And if he does, I'll believe it when I see him.

    2.) Some dude with jeans walking out? "God" didn't make jeans. (Or anything else for that matter) And there ARE other organisms out there, living on other planets. Mars, for example, is capable of supporting some primitive forms of life.

    3.) I dont think "aliens" have space ships and "mother ships". Think about what you're saying. Some large, old man in a white robe named "God"? Little green men with jeans? Flying saucers?

    The bottom line is that this is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. This thread deserves to be closed.
