Three Beautiful Words

Creationist Ken Hamm believes that all aliens are going to hell, because they haven’t met Jesus personally or something.

Neil deGrasse Tyson has something to say about that.

Yeah, that seems to be the general feeling of the local Babdeez. If you haven’t personally accepted Jesus Christ into your heart, you’re going to hell. Or at least Purgatory. When asked what about the people who lived and died before Jesus, or lived on different continents and didn’t hear about him until a thousand years or so later, they consign all of those to hell, too. Seems a bit unfair to me.

Some of them are going to be *really* surprised to meet the Flying Spaghetti Monster in the end…

Or, as the old joke about the holy roller who had a near death experience goes, when asked what God is like: “She’s black.”

In his “Silent Planet” trilogy, C.S. Lewis postulated that only the inhabitants of Earth hasdfallen when their guardian tempted them, and that the inhabitants of the other planets are all still in a state of grace. It actually makes a whole lot of sense, when you stop and think about it. That would explain why SETI isn’t finding anything and why the aliens never come to visit. They don’t want to mingle with the loathsome slime that is fallen humanity.

Of course, Lewis is only the primary Christian appologist of the 20th century, so no fundamentalist redneck is going to listen to him.

I’m taking my chances with the aliens! And a hell with no fundamentalists doesn’t sound so bad …
