If all dogs go to Heaven, do all aliens go to Hell?
It’s a question that has inspired mankind of generations; are we alone in the universe? Creationist Ken Ham says that aliens don’t exist, but if they do exist they are going to Hell anyway, so we should really just stop wasting time and money looking for them.
NASA recently made headlines when officials there said they are confident that we are on the way to discovering alien life within the next twenty years. Advances in telescope technology and the detection of hundreds of exoplanets outside of our solar system have led many in the scientific community to assert that the confirmation of the existence of alien life in the near future is a foregone conclusion. After all, the universe is so vastly, mind-bogglingly huge surely something else has to be out there, right? We just need the tools and the time to find it. It’s just like getting laid in high school.
Ken Ham says he doesn’t believe in space aliens. Ironically after looking at him most people are convinced they exist. #Slam
Ken Ham, founder of the Creationist Museum in Kentucky also made headlines earlier this year when he debated Bill Nye The Science Guy on evolution. The whole thing was very productive and both sides gained a mutual understanding and appreciation for each other’s point of view. Just kidding. It was like watching a live action representation of the worst part of the comments section of the Internet; see below.
Partly in response to NASA’s comments on the discovery of alien life Ken Ham wanted to throw some cold water on any ideas that we would meet aliens anytime soon. He says we are all alone in the universe. Ham says;
"Earth was specially created, and the entire hunt for extraterrestrials is really driven by man’s rebellion against God in a desperate attempt to supposedly prove evolution!" and “Jesus did not become the “GodKlingon” or the “GodMartian”!
He probably deserves to go to Hell.
He goes on to say that even if scientists do discover alien life, it is going to Hell, as it is not a descendant of the Biblical Adam and thus can’t be saved. As you can imagine this got folks all fired up and ready to rumble with their keyboards. Maybe Ken Ham is just trolling the rest of us, sort of like Ann Coulter telling everyone that soccer is a sign of the nation’s moral decay; now idiots like me are going to write articles about him and he “wins” in a weird way. Or maybe he knows about a future war with the aliens and just really hates them and he means it more like “you damn aliens, go to Hell!” Either way I know you guys love polls. So we are going to settle this once and for all in a Break Readers Poll in the comments.
What do you think; if aliens exist will they go to Hell? Or should everyone just keep thier opinions to themselves?
I always wanted to know if there could be a ghost for a cyborg-alien.
Eternal Hellfire is almost too good for this alien scum.
OK, Nazi aliens definitely go to Hell.
