The possibility only remains for those who refuse to see that God's plan for SALVATION for us necessarily counteracts the claim that aliens exist. Nobody here has been able to refute this yet.
You're peddling the possibility that aliens exist. And you're a Christian. And that's why your peddling needs to be rebuked. WE SHOULD CLAIM that belief in aliens is FALSE because it contradicts the main thrust of the Bible: God's plan for salvation!
Come on now. Do you really want to say I meant "you" invented aliens just so you can say I'm twisting your words? I guess you do. Well, I'll clarify. I didn't mean YOU specifically.
And ignore the main message of the Bible regarding salvation?
This is NOT my assumption. I am arguing that BOTH ways are FALSE. Go back. I stated sin or sinless, either way, contradicts God's plan of salvation as stated in His word! In fact, I stated it in my first post. Yet you won't address salvation for aliens. Because you can't, it doesn't make sense logically nor Biblically.
Now, which of these two choices do you believe:
1) Christ goes around the universe sacrificing Himself to aliens on different planets
2) God does NOT have a plan for alien salvation from their sin
Then you can answer this:
WHO BENEFITS BY THIS BELIEF IN ALIENS? GOD OR SATAN??
I explained this:
Here is my answer:
Yet it's brought up AGAIN while my questions for him to explain free will go ignored. He's blowing smoke now to cover the fact that he can't answer questions about free will nor God's plan of salvation for aliens.
Firstly talking about me in the third person is quite impersonal and to be frank isn't following the spirit of a debate... A debate is meant to be a conversation... not an expose'
How am I supposed to know if alien life are sinless, sinful or their mode of salvation. If aliens exist I am sure God wouldn't share that knowledge with the likes of me.
How do you assert that human salvation contradicts the possibility of Aliens? You have given no evidence for this, all you have stated is that it is so... Assertum non est demonstratum. Further as I said multiple times now that there is no contradiction since the topic of Aliens is not brought up in the Bible hence you are ADDING to the Bible your own opinion / interpretation since there is nothing in the Bible that claims that Aliens do not exist.
??? Who said I was Christian? I am a theistic agnostic, I believe in God but I have my reservations as to WHO God is... In essence I believe in God, but I do not believe in Religion.
Yet those were the words you wrote, I can only go on the words you write, since I am not a mind reader... 'From out the mouth the heart speaks' and so on.
It is your assumption since you have demonstrated no such thing, as I have been saying there is no contradiction in the Bible that makes the claim that Aliens could exist... As I said before, who knows perhaps God has a different plan for them than he has for us.. Who are we to try and rationalize God's plans, (as it is said God has his secrets). Who are you to make claim to what God would and wouldn't do... its the same argument as those who say that God would make perfect designs so since humans are flawed we are not products of God... How can anyone claim to know what God's plans are?
This I believe is a point of humility to be taken, since accepting that we do not know everything, (since God does have his secrets) means that we cannot claim either way, as to make such claims would be saying you have special knowledge about God and his plans. Do you claim to have such knowledge?
God would since if there were aliens then it would mean more beings created to demonstrate his glory... Satan doesn't because aliens do not contradict the Bible and thus are not a means with which to trick people.
Now I'd like to ask you somethings
- where does it specifically state in the Bible that aliens do not exist
- where does it specifically state in the Bible that we are the sole sentient beings in all the universe
How does this refute anything?" Fine. If you don't like the fact that I call sinless aliens "little Gods" (which is NOT "totally wrong" as you assert) then you explain HOW your aliens are SINLESS. Do they have free will? If the DO have free will, how do they remain sinless? If they DON'T have free will, then why did God make them like robots when He made made them this way?"
Firstly aliens as "little Gods" IS wrong since even if they were sinless they wouldn't share the other qualities of God, hence are not God/s. Further when people are saved they become sinless in a new body hence would you claim them to be Gods as well or perhaps just perfect beings....
Secondly how am I supposed to know? We are talking about an unknowable thing here so your questions are absurd.
Thirdly you are asking about the purposes of God, how can anyone know God's purposes that are not claimed in the Bible, (the secret things of God).. Hence this line of questioning is absurd, and is based on a human pride to know everything. Admit the fact that we do not know everything, nor shall we since as the Bible has already said that God has kept some secrets from us, this isn't a bad thing, but is something to be mindful of when discussing things that are not covered by the Bible.
Now as I have asked in my questions I am asking YOU for quotation of the Bible to support your claims. I have done this at your request, (the secrets of God quotes), hence I respectfully ask the same of you.
Now if the Bible doesn't cover the topic of aliens... Do you admit that you are ADDING to the Bible your own opinions on the matter, and to do such is not a good thing, (as is covered in Revelations).
