I think that happens because back in the day no one could ever even imagine the importance of space, how small our planet is, that we'd ever fly to the moon, etc, etc.... It wasn't until the 16th century I think that we discovered how earth revolves around the sun and not viceversa.... The Bible and those ancient books are nothing but pure imagination from older men in those days... It's how I see it... but anyways... I'm talking about religion because I don't think any religion talks about any source of extraterrestial life... do they?
You don't know what you're talking about.
The Bible says the world was round (Isaiah 40:22, Job 22:14). And nowhere does the Bible say that the sun revolves around the Earth. The Bible talks about the sun rising in the east and setting in the west (Ecclesiates 1:5) but it doesn't say that the sun revolves the Earth. That was just people assuming...
There actually could be extraterrestrial life. I mean, I would not be surprised if we're all that is but I don't see why "aliens" couldn't exist.
And admitting that doesn't deny the existence of God. If anything, it kind of emboldens the existence of God.
Outside of angels, demons (FYI: the angels and demons the Bible talks about aren't the type of angels and demons that you think of)
and other strange animals, the Bible says nothing about extraterrestrial live. And, in the grand scheme of things, it really doesn't matter.
The Bible focuses on Earth not because "it was the only planet that existed" but it centers on the Earth and its inhabitants because it's the only thing that matters for the time being.
If I'm trying to help you out by giving you directions on how to get from point A to point B in New York City, I have no business talking to you about the burgeoning civil war in Syria.
It has no relevance to the conversation.
Could everybody please stop talking about irrelevancies and focus on my very interesting post on page 3?
You mean the one about your ignorance towards the Bible? It's on page 4, not 3.
