Atheists, Aliens and Science

stock.xchng/nion
I'm going to redirect you to a mult-faceted post.

The first part is about the "ownership" of science. Many atheists strut around as if they invented the thing, and that to be a scientist, you have to be an atheist. Dead wrong, Robert!
Does science belong to Christians and Theists? We (not me, of course, I wasn't born yet) invented the whole modern disciplines of science. Whether genetics or physics or electrical theory or classification of organisms or chemistry or you name it...
You could assert that the ancient Greeks like Archimedes were the first scientists and there is some support for that. However, the axiomatic way of viewing the world proved to be a hindrance to science. Keep in mind that science was always simply a part of the overall concept of philosophy and was not considered separately back in the ancient world.
How does that grab ya? But wait, if you act now, you'll get absolutely free, a bonus post about space aliens! (Are space aliens atheists who do science? Not a chance.) Here's a preview for the second part:
Not that long ago the idea that older (on the evolutionary scale), more technologically advanced (than humans), wiser and benevolent extraterrestrials have visited or are currently visiting the Earth would have seen you carted off to the local psych ward. But not anymore. Popular polls have even suggested that upto 20 million Americans have seen a UFO and that 4 million claim to have been abducted by aliens (see The Fourth Kind our review of the infamous alien abduction movie of the same name). Such ideas have become very mainstream and children in particular are very susceptible and are openly targeted. Many seemingly credible scientists now believe that life on Earth originated from outer space via either directed or undirected panspermia (‘seeds from space’—from the Greek words pas/pan [all] and sperma [seed]). Some very famous scientists have even suggested that our DNA may contain revelation from our alien creators once we are smart enough (like them) to decipher it. Ironically, this makes many of them ‘creationists’ (sort of). It appears that they just don’t want the God of the Bible to be responsible.
You really should fly over and read this material posted by my buddy, Radar. Click this: "A GREAT LINK, then...Ancient Knowledge, not Ancient Aliens...We are saved by JC, not ET!!!"
