    Life on other planets does not disprove the Bible (I think there are other factors that disprove the bible, but this isn't one).

    According to the Christian tradition, there really has not been the connection between man and God since the time of Jesus. So, it is quite possible to fit God plopping buggers on other worlds, especially after he's seen the failure that's happened on this one.

    Yes. Quite the effect -that- would have.

    More often than not, they are.

    So, your answer is "no"?

    He lives 30 miles from where I grew up.

    Ender's Game is the ****, but I am not too thrilled with his political views.

    More often than not, something that isn't self-evident needs to be proven.

    Yeah, it wouldn't really disprove the Bible since it really only speaks of God creating this world. But I can see how the Die-Hard Anti-Religion types would love its implications.

    It disproves the most literal reading of the bible, but then again, that's been disproven dozens of times already, so it won't really change much. The figurative reading of the bible can not be disproven since it is adaptable enough to keep up with modern life.

    It's the perfect plan!
