Halo It's Time To Call It: We're Alone in the Universe . . . Apart from God and the Angels - 03-03-2019, 01:05 AM

"The evidence is in: we’re alone in the universe," according to Dr. Danny R. Faulkner of Answers in Genesis. In the linked article, we learn that the evidence is threefold.


1. The Fermi Paradox

"Where is everybody?" asked physicist Enrico Fermi. Why isn't Earth the hub of an interstellar highway, with alien spacecraft zipping in and out? Or why aren't we under constant attack for domination of the planet in an ongoing War of the Worlds showdown?

Admittedly, there are people who claim to have seen UFO's and little green men. Some will tell stories of how they were abducted and taken aboard alien spacecraft, where they were microchipped and probed (anally). These claims must be treated sceptically.

UFO enthusiasts tend to follow a predictable pattern of behaviour.
  1. Produce the latest footage of a distant blurry object in a hazy sky and laugh derisively at the ignorant masses.
  2. Do not consider alternative, natural explanations for the object.
  3. Do not accept the burden of proof to demonstrate that the blurry object is in fact an alien spacecraft.
  4. When the object is proven to be something other than an alien spacecraft, use this as proof that there is a vast government conspiracy to cover up the truth and that you were right all along.
The UFO enthusiast is a victim of confirmation bias. As a typical example, consider the case in November last year of a mysterious bell-shaped object seen flying over Gothenburg, Sweden, which turned out to be a balloon.



The personal testimony of self-proclaimed abductees is unreliable. Their stories are often inconsistent, or conflict with each other. They can never present physical evidence of their abduction. And we must consider the possibility that they are either delusional, and their abduction "experiences" are a manifestation of latent inter-species homosexual desire, or that they are lying, perhaps just for laughs or perhaps for more sinister reasons.

Conversely, angel sightings by True Christians™ are completely reliable. Take, for example, the testimony of Pastor Michael Clary, who photographed an angel praying – successfully, I might add – for a man who had been injured in a car accident. Below, you can see a Negro contemplating whether to steal the unattended vehicle, although it wouldn't have taken him very far in that state, and the angel praying in a tree above the victim.



There are also many credible stories from second- or third-hand sources, such as this one, of guardian angels fending off attackers. Pseudo-sceptics may try to turn the tables on us by claiming that it is we who are delusional or lying. But it is impossible for Christians to be delusional.

2 Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

And we are not allowed to lie (Ex 20:16). Even if we wanted to, we couldn't.

1 Jn 2:21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

Furthermore, God's existence has been confirmed by the lack of any verifiable sightings of Him. He is invisible and no one has seen Him.

Col 1:15 [Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

1 Jn 4:12a No man hath seen God at any time.

If atheists want to disprove God's existence, all they would have to do is take out their phones and snap a clear photo of Him. It wouldn't be hard, given that He is everywhere (Jer 23:24).


2. SETI

For decades now secular astrologers have been listening in for radio broadcasts from outer space. The silence has been deafening. No Satanic music. No commercials for the latest hovercar. No hourly fake news to feed us misinformation about the presidents of other planets. Nothing. We have, however, received signals from God.

Ps 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.






3. Exoplanets

Of the 4,000 exoplanets discovered so far, only 16 are earthlike. But if the Kepler Microscope was able to see these planets, then surely it would have been able to see whether there were aliens living on them. No pictures have been forthcoming. So scientists have not discovered any other planets capable of supporting advanced life and they should probably just stop looking now. It's a waste of taxpayers' money.


The Probabilities

Let's calculate the probability that we will ever receive radio signals from aliens. The Drake Equation is N = R × fp × ne × fl × fi × fc × L.

N = the number of civilizations in our galaxy that might be able to communicate with us.

R = the average rate of star formation in the galaxy. This is based on an evolutionistic assumption. Stars don't "form"; God created them all 6,000 years ago as an afterthought (Gen 1:16) and didn't make any more after that (Gen 2:1-3). There are, however, according to secular estimates, 100 billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. Therefore R = 100,000,000,000.

fp = the fraction of stars that have planets. Estimates vary, so let's be charitable and assume that they all do. fp = 1.

ne = the average number of planets per star that could support life. Estimates vary, so again let's be charitable and assume that each star has one. ne = 1.

fl = the fraction of habitable planets that develop life at some point. Life doesn't "develop"; God creates it. fl = 0.

fi = the fraction of planets with life that develop intelligent life (civilizations). Again, intelligent life doesn't "develop"; God creates it from dirt (Gen 2:7). fi = 0.

fc = the fraction of civilisations that develop a technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into space. Civilisations don't "develop" technology; all knowledge comes from God (Pro 2:6; Is 28:24-29). The first generation of humans were civilised (Gen 4:17) and knew how to farm (Gen 4:2). fc = 0.

L = the length of time for which such civilizations release detectable signals into space. Let's be very generous and assume, for argument's sake, that advanced alien civilisations could have been broadcasting radio signals ever since God created the universe 6,000-10,000 years ago. L = 10,000.

100,000,000,000 x 1 x 1 x 0 x 0 x 0 x 10,000 = 0

So even if we accept the most wildly optimistic figures, the probability that alien life, let alone intelligent alien life that will want to try to make contact with us, is a big fat zero.


Conclusion

So why won't secular scientists acknowledge that we're alone in the universe (apart from God and the angels, obviously)? Dr Faulkner explains below.

Quote:

The three lines of evidence are compelling: all three point to the fact that we are alone in the universe. So why haven’t you heard any scientists (before me) say this?

Many scientists would complain that not all the data is in yet. But when is all the data ever in? We can always collect more data. Furthermore, scientists frequently make conclusions based upon far less data. So why the reluctance to reach a conclusion in this case? The conclusion that is warranted by the data does not support the evolutionary worldview of most scientists. There’s a term for that: bias. And extreme bias at that . . . .

The three lines of evidence presented here—the Fermi paradox, the null SETI results, and the lack of earthlike planets—amount to scientific data. And all three agree with the prediction from biblical creation: we’re alone in the universe. To reach the right conclusion, evolutionary scientists do not need more data about life elsewhere in the universe, but the right starting belief about life here on earth.
If there is no evidence of intelligent lifeforms out in the heavens and the testimony of those who claim to have seen them is unreliable, then we have no reason to believe they exist. I'm ready to nail my colours to the mast. I'm going to be intellectually honest. Yes, I'm going to call it. The evidence is in. We're alone in the universe. Apart from God and the angels, of course.

You heard it here first, folks. Well, second, actually, after Answer in Genesis.


Mt 21:42, 44 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes . . . ? And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Thank you, Brother Pim, for your excellent essay. I especially liked the quoted text near the bottom:

Quote:

Indeed - and starting with the right belief is not equal to a bias, to the contrary, it's sound creationist science.

I also have two comments. One, of course atheist fools (Psalm 14:1) call Christians who have seen angels, "delusional." We knew that would happen from the getgo:

1 Corinthians 4:9-10
9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.
10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.

Let them despise and laugh at us. We'll be the ones laughing after the Judgment Day!

My second point relates to the UFO sightings. I have noted that people who claim to see UFO's are never found among the ranks of those who make their living from looking up into the night sky - astronomers. That is further proof that UFO sightings are by people who have no idea what stuff can be seen in the sky, and are prone to misjudge what they do see.

Excelente point Sister. But be sure to start with the right belief.

Proved that UFO's not only exists, but they will bring communism to Earth (the round globe, that is). If they come first, it means they are more advanced than us. And what is more advanced than a capitalist planet? Yes, a communist one. The logic is bulletproof here!

Dear, I'm afraid you got a permanent brain freeze after your adventures in Gulag Archipelago (this is what you people do for fun, right, spend a decade in a hard labor camp in Siberia?). You are another example of a delusional person crippled by your bias, just like the secular scientists. When will you finally accept that the Holy Bible is the ultimate source of Truth™?

I find this thread fascinating. So much to learn. The fact that there has been no sound received from other beings out there but that we have heard from God is good hard evidence we are here alone.


Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.
