Discussion 1 to Meditation 374
Strongly agnostic about both

by Rev. Eric

To add to this discussion (or any other,) please use the Contact form.

On a more serious note[1], I choose to remain strongly agnostic about both: I believe that we cannot know whether or not there is a Supreme Being or extraterrestrial beings.

The "God" question is confused with all the different interpretations and beliefs of who this God is and what is His/Her/Its holy book or books. The extraterrestrial question is impossible to answer due to the speed of light[2] limiting how fast we can do things.

If ETs exist, they are most likely many light-years away. Given that, even if we receive a radio signal from ETs, we will not be able to tell whether or not they exist at the time of receipt of the signal - we can only determine that they once existed many years before the receipt of the signal. So we will never know if they are among us.
