I don't agree with you but must give you credit for stirring the pot. If only I could do as well.

I will give you all here a good piece of advice, when you think somebody is trolling, don't bother with a reply.
You are only feeding the troll. Feed them once, and they don't leave you alone, they always expect more.
And I think the was simply trying to make you think about your argument a little more.
Thanks. Not sure what you don't agree about, but I am generalizing about Christians. I admit it. I have to generalize. I can't formulate my assumption based off every single individual christian.

Dude, you can do one of 2 things with these people,
1 Accept that their delusional
2 Study what they really believe and why they believe it. Get one of the bibles and read it (takes ages and is mind numbingly boring) I've met and spoken to hundreds of xtians (aside here on ATS) of various flavours and not one of them had infact read an entire bible !
Amazing dude !! A god that is their ever loving creator has written the most improtant peace of work on the planet just for them.
And guess what ? yeas that's right they didn't read what he had to say !!
Speaks volumes doesn't it, yup they sit there every sunday lapping up what some bling coated pastor tells them that god said !
Go get a bible my friend sit and read you probably won't get thtough genesis whithout thinking "What ??? is this BS ???
Once you're done reading you can then have an informed discussion with the pair of clowns at work. The fact that they haven't bothered thinking for themselves and reading what the beard has to say will probably shut them up for quite a long time.
Remember -- Nurse Rachet was a devout xtian

This is my impression, and it applies equally to all judeo-christian-muslim belief systems that teach that there is no other life.
The theory is such, God created us in his image, therefore, we are the highest from of life.
From Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Since God gave man "dominion" over all other life, there cannot be life elsewhere that is of a higher intelligence or level of sophistication.
On the other hand, I don't believe that being a Christian, or a Jew, or a Muslim, or a Buddhist, etc... means that you cannot believe in scripture and also believe in ET's.
I think the question really comes down to if you believe in the scripture as literal fact that is not open to interpretation or if you understand it to be allegory.
