Great Bible Stories 4 by Marsmar Great Bible Stories 4 by Marsmar
Miss these yet? You'd think people would stop taking their kids to sunday school but I guess the bible's just too interesting to stop.

Ah the joys of all the shitty old art you've made. Taking one look at it and cringing hard.

Yes, true, but I was referring to the twin towers.

Maybe the Tower of Babel was a Church? Maybe God is real but he doesn't want anyone to worship him, that's why he punishes us?

Or maybe I'm being a silly goose

That's actually a lot more likely than anything religion has come up with.

That God guy sure has a problem with human unity.

I don't get what his problem is. He created the entire universe, why should he give a damn about the politics of a few specks of carbon in the edge of the Milky Way.

That's one of the main problems with religions. Always overstating the importance of certain things.
For instance, while we live in an amazingly vast universe of billions of galaxies, each containing billions (and sometimes trillions) of stars, there are still those who believe the most important thing in all of existence was some carpenter thought to have lived on Earth around 2000 years ago. :bucktooth:

It's going to be really really awkward for them when we do discover some form of life in the universe. Even if it was only a single cell, it would still imply that humans aren't alone in the universe and that there's a chance that God (if he/she/it exists) has his attention focused on a much superior species living somewhere out in the universe.
It would really kill the Pope's authority.

Well there is some evidence of microbes on Mars. Unfortunately, this has not gotten quite the attention it deserves, cause microbes are not considered exciting enough (though I personally find the discovery of even the most basic non-terrestrial life to be quite exciting).

However, even if we made contact with an alien civilisation, the religious extremists would stand their ground. They'd likely just claim the aliens were demons trying to deceive us or some shit like that.
Fortunately, while alien contact may not change the minds of existing religious extremists, it may well reduce the chances of such people arising in later generations.
