Stephen Hawking says there probably are aliens out there. But in a new documentary series with the Discovery Channel, the acclaimed physicist says we probably shouldn't be beaming radio waves into the universe in hope of making contact. After all, we're just as likely to make contact with a superior alien race that will mine our planet for water and minerals and leave us to die as we are to find an alien race that wants to be friends and learn the Macarena. "Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they could reach," the 68-year mused. "If so, it makes sense for them to exploit each new planet for materials to build more spaceships so they could move on."
In the movie "Expelled" with Ben Stein, Mr Stein interviewed Richard Dawkins another intellectual atheist like Hawking. Stein kept questioning Dawkins about the origin of life, what happened, where did we come from. Clearly annoyed, Dawkins replied "our planet was probably seeded by aliens."
Here are two brilliant intellectual men and the best they've got is aliens. They mock intelligent design, Christianity and Judaism, but have no problems with giving credit to aliens.
"For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them....For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for"....Aliens. Romans 1:19,21-23a
