To: Seti 1
Are you a true believer in the idea that intelligent life exists around other stars? Compare our evidence for this to our evidence that Jesus Christ rose from the dead.
As easy as it is to believe other stars host aliens every bit of evidence we have so far supports the idea that we are alone (lets leave off extra-dimensional beings), . As hard as it is to believe Jesus is who he claimed he was, hundreds of eyewitnesses gave their lives rather than recant their testamony of the resurrection.\
It seems there is more actual evidence for the position of the Christian than for the position you espouse in your screen name. I urge you to study the most important question in life for the last 2,000 years....Who is Jesus?

Your reply is off the mark. The Seti in my "screen name" was the name of an Egyptian pharoah and not a reference to extra you-know-whats. I had been reading Egyptian history just before I chose it and it was about the fourth try. I just figured no one else had chosen it.
We have no records of anyone who was an "eyewitness" to the Resurrection. Even the gospels were written a couple of generations later and repeated and recopied for several centuries before being put down in any form existing today.
Certainly many people believe in Christ but a great many more do not so if we are voting, you lose.

Good point. I was just about to post the same thought, but most likely not as eloquently.
We bash Christians for believing in something that we have documented history on, but search the heavens for ET based upon probability...
amazing... of course the side-track he started has nothing to do with the thread topic. He has a point in saying that the article is clearly one-sided, not that this is bad. I just think the poster should have made editorial mention up front.
