Re: Fearful of Aliens? Relax. Tom's on the job. I'm quite certain that few people would be more delighted than yours truly if/when intelligent aliens from Elsewhere reveal themselves. Or ANY credible info from credible sources confirms their presence.
I would PAR-TAY with joy and wonder for the rest of my days and eagerly await their answers for some of life's Great Questions.
But until that day, I remain hopeful but also reasonably skeptical. I need more than anecdotal information - as compelling as that often is.
I believe there was a guiding intelligence to our evolution and probably to all life on Earth. Whether this intelligence takes the form of otherworldly aliens or a god(s)-like creature or a universal consciousness, I don't know - nor do I much care. I just have a seat-of-my-pants hunch that something like that could be true.
Truer, at least, than a bearded, vaguely paternal homicidal maniac who's allatime sentencing someone o other to death and/or eternal torment for pissing him off.

Re: Fearful of Aliens? Relax. Tom's on the job. While I would be right there partying with you if Aliens lifeforms came here I am skeptical as well. Not there there is life out there, I'm fairly certain that we are not alone in the universe. But really, if you were intelligent, would YOU come here?

Bless his heart...I cannot stand Tom Cruise. I'm sure that is my fault, however. In some strange and skewed way, I'm glad scientology has dear ole Tom up front and center representing them to America. On the other hand, I hope from the bottom of my heart that any ETs checking us out have more intelligence than to think he represents America, much less the earth.
Re: Fearful of Aliens? Relax. Tom's on the job. Can't stand Tom either.
I'm reading a book right now called 'World without End - The Mission', and it poses a very interesting question. Now first I should say I am NOT religious, I'm atheist so how I like this book so much is odd. That said the book is a 'Christian Religion' book and the question it poses is, did God create other worlds and other 'life'.
They refer to this passage in the bible (a first for me. )
“And worlds without number have I created; and I also created them for mine own purpose; and by the Son I created them, which is mine Only Begotten.
And the first man of all men have I called Adam, which is many.
But only an account of this earth, and the inhabitants thereof, give I unto you. For behold, there are many worlds that have passed away by the word of my power. And there are many that now stand, and innumerable are they unto man; but all things are numbered unto me, for they are mine and I know them.
And it came to pass that Moses spake unto the Lord, saying: Be merciful unto thy servant, O God, and tell me concerning this earth, and the inhabitants thereof, and also the heavens, and then my servant will be content.
And the Lord God spake unto Moses, saying: The heavens, they are many, and they cannot be numbered unto man; but they are numbered unto me for they are mine.
And as one earth shall pass away, and the heavens thereof even so shall another come, and there is no end to my works, neither to my words."
