Do Atheists Believe In Aliens?


I heard some UFO believers talking recently about if Aliens began life on this planet as many believe then it would end Religion as we know it.After hearing this, I disagree.It seems to me that both may coexist without difficulty.
Have you wondered whether Atheists who deny God's existence believe in Aliens? Are there any articles or studies about that? I would like to know more.I really only know two or three who do not believe in God and they are not the type of people with whom discussing UFO's seems easy.I am a strong believer in God although not active in organized religion.
Many of my Baptist and Methodist associates now and as I was younger do not think believing in Aliens "is Christian"I do not agree with that either.Maybe it is a personal choice,but the God in whom I believe is quite capable of creating life and worlds with evolution,aliens or whatever. What do you think?

I really think, Atheist usually lose their faith when something terrible happens and they think God isn't listening..I am not saying all..but this has been the case with the ones I have met. As far as them believing in Aliens, that would be easier for them, since they don't count of them for help..Don't you like my logic?

Sounds logical to me..Many change their views about God as death approaches it is said...

It depends what you mean by "believe in aliens".

Do I believe that it is possible that somewhere in the universe there is life, possibly even intelligent life? Yes, I believe that's possible. I even hope it is true.

Do I believe that advanced aliens are at the least visiting our planet in their spaceships, and at most abducting people and farm animals? No.

"I really think, Atheist usually lose their faith when something terrible happens and they think God isn't listening..I am not saying all..but this has been the case with the ones I have met."

Some, yes. As for me (an atheist), nothing bad ever happened to me to cause me to stop believing. I just thought about it and realized that what I had believed in was wrong.

I do believe there is a possibility of other life out there? Absolutly. I find it entirely absurd to believe that we are the only planet with life on it. Outer space is soo vast that there is no end in sight. How is it possible that earth is the only planet with life?

As for believing in god I didn't have anything bad happen to me. I thought about it and struggled with it for over a year until I realized that it just wasn't something I believed in.

Hothead, thanks for your honesty.I completely agree with the idea of not being alone but believe in God and life after death...can you believe in life after death and not believe in God?I really do not know, but guess so...
