Evolution, Aliens, Religion — Wackiness Ensues

If you study on it for a spell, you'll notice that secularists have double standards, especially related to anything Christian or creationist:

  • When we teach our children about biblical creation, we're "indoctrinating" them. When government-run secularist education centers give them materialistic and evolutionary material for several hours a day over a period of years, they're "educating" them.
  • When evolutionists disagree about hypotheses and models, it's good for science. When creationary scientists disagree with each other or offer other possible interpretations of evidence, well, creationists cannot get along with each other.
  • When atheists and evolutionists attack Christians and creationists, they're being "rational". When creationists present evidence and refute the attacks, we're "right wing extremists" and "science deniers".
  • When using quotes of evolutionists admitting they have problems, it's "quote mining". When taking creationists out of context and misrepresenting them, that is acceptable for anti-creationists.
  • When evolutionists speculate, it's "science", and the obligatory denigration of anything biblical (using remarks like "a fictional worldwide flood" to dismiss Genesis Flood geology) can be included. When creationists speculate, it's the ravings of incompetent lying ideologues.
  • Similar to the point above, when creationary evidence is rejected out of hand without even considering its merit because it's "religious". When secular scientists present faith-based statements, they are worthy of serious consideration in scientific journals, even though no evidence is provided.
I could continue, but you get the idea. Let's focus on faith-based speculations as science. In this case, it's about communicating with extraterrestrial life.

Double standards. Secularists reject creation evidence as "religious", and yet they give wild, faith-based speculations about extraterrestrials scientific credence.

Searching for signs of extraterrestrial life way out yonder generally receives its impetus from the presupposition that algae-to-architect evolution is true; if it happened here, then it happened out there. Quite a bit of work these owlhoots indulge in to deny the Creator, isn't it?

Saying that bursts of radio waves are examples of aliens trying to tell us something (but that's faith-based assumptions without evidence or logic). Based on how evolution allegedly works, it may be a good idea to not contact them. Wait, there's more! Aliens changed so much, they've become the laws of nature — they're in us, we're in them, and we are all together, goo goo g' joob. Or how about how the aliens we meet will be super-intelligent machines? 

This wacky religion stuff about aliens gets serious consideration, but if a creationists offer something, they're told to get out of Dodge. Two articles on these subjects are submitted for your approval. First, "Alien Religion Unrebuked", and then, "The End of SETI". ADDENDUM: CMI published an article that deals extensively with one of the sections in "Alien Religion Unrebuked", where a professor has some very strange views. See "Aliens are all around us?".
