 He told them this parable: "No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews it on an old one. If he does, he will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old.  And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.  No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins.  And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, 'The old is better.' "

What if Thor and Jehovah are the same being?

If I were an alien visiting planet Earth, the atheists would not be any different in action and behavior than the religious groups and I would group them as just a part of the lot. I would observe humanity is a cultural species and that not having belief is a belief and cultural element in and of itself. The only way you can truly have no belief is if you did not have a human brain capable of it.edit on 4-2-2011 by Gorman91 because: (no reason given)edit on 4-2-2011 by Gorman91 because: (no reason given)edit on 4-2-2011 by Gorman91 because: (no reason given)

I already explained it in full detail. Your misunderstanding does not justify your accusations.
3 exoplanets scenario = Example. The example itself might not exist exactly the way I explained it, but the chance of it is quite high. I am sure we are not the only ones in the universe. It's not all about humans. This universe belongs to other people as well, so deal with it. There's no doubt in my mind that the ancient civilizations here on Earth were seeing extraterrestrial spacecrafts descend from space. Some descriptions are vague, some are quite clear and even include drawings of these beings, most of them being the grays (Coincidence? No.).
There isn't a third state here.
If you can actually explain to me rationally how 'not knowing of a concept' does not necessarily imply 'not believing in that concept' I will gladly hear it.
And that's your opinion. You've repeatedly given your opinion, but you've not even bothered with some basic reason.
