    Just wondered if there was a correlation with those who believe in religion.

    "It is the mark of an educated person to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." ~Aristotle

    When both of my ears were still wet, the possibility amused me. My view today? Of course not!

    I don't believe in flying saucers, little green men or that the there is life on Mars. There is some evidence they exit and there is statistically speaking at least the possibility of there being life elsewhere than Earth.

    However I remain firmly in the camp that certain evidences combined with a good theory and the lack of an acceptable alternative, does not constitute the truth. As in the theory of the evolution of all life from single celled creatures for example.

    But do you accept that the evidence for common descent is significant?
    What is your opinion of other scientific theories, such as Relativity, Quantum theory, or the Big Bang Theory?
    Do you reject all science, or only when it suits you? Or do you remain agnostic until you have reason to believe otherwise?

    All humans descended from Adam and Eve just like the Holy Bible says.
    So it should be reasonable to think that there would be some evidence
    of common descent.

    I've been to the museum in Roswell NM and after going there I think it was a weather balloon or some type of silver dirigible. The dudes (Air force personnel) holding the silver material did not seemed alarmed at all in the pictures they were smiling so I think it was what it was.

    Yes, it was a UFO. A Top Secret project of the US government. That
    is all I can say about it.
