Do Aliens Have the Answers to Life?

The idea of extraterrestrial beings is everywhere in our culture. Since the invention of television, we’ve seen countless cartoons, sci-fi films, and TV shows featuring aliens. Some are cute and green with large pupilless eyes; some are slimy and violent; others appear almost human.

One thing these supposed aliens nearly all have in common is heightened intelligence, often revealing humans on earth to be so far behind in development that they’re practically primal.

An evolutionist astronomer once suggested that perhaps the reason we haven’t yet made contact with alien life is that aliens are ignoring us. He backed up this claim with the idea that aliens may have formed cliques, much like the ones high schoolers deal with every day, and humans aren’t cool enough to be in the clique. This clique is so exclusive that all alien groups have formed a pact to ignore us unintelligent humans.

Recently, Scottish astronomer Duncan Forgan refuted this idea, though he added that any assumptions are difficult to test with computer simulation because there isn’t any real alien data.

Real alien data will never exist because, well, aliens aren’t real!

Well, here’s the real news: real alien data will never exist because, well, aliens aren’t real!

You see, people are always looking for something beyond themselves to explain life and the universe, answer their big questions, give them the keys to immortality and infinite knowledge, and offer them a sense of purpose. But when people deny the true Creator of the universe, they’ll look for anything to try to replace Him—no matter how ridiculous their ideas are.

Isn’t it interesting that they’re looking for everything God has already provided?

  • Genesis 1:1 tells us how we got here: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
  • Ecclesiastes 12:13 states our purpose: “Fear God and keep His commandments.”
  • 1 John 5:13 explains eternal life: “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.”
  • And Proverbs 1:7 provides the key to knowledge: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.”

When we look for answers outside of God’s Word, our efforts are in vain and even foolish. These evolutionists/atheists have turned what serves as simple entertainment for many of us into a passionate, expensive pursuit that will never give them the answers they’re looking for. Only a life pursuing our Creator will give us the answers and purpose we seek.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
