Ok I'll go with it for now and see how it goes. I too have no wish to upset any religious believers, after all if it works for you then so be it, nice club, make the most of it I say, it just isn't for me.
As far as I am concerned we are alone in the universe and until we collectively accept that slightly unnerving and lonely fact we are doomed to remain tied to our religiously maternal apron strings.
And well fact is I can think of no actual scientific event that would convince me that god, as in an all powerful pan universal deity, existed. Even if something 'manifested' itself in my very presence and proclaimed itself to be 'god' complete with all the miracles and such like in tow I would still assume it was some alien con trick.
I guess that rather negates the question doesn't it?
If you dont believe what would it take in science to prove to you that god is real?
For example, would the finding of the Ark convince you it happened if it was backed up scientifically.
likewise if you are an ardent believer would there be anything science could prove that would turn the tide for you?
Find Jesus, or whichever religious figure you feel like, and witness a miracle... Now even i would have trouble.
Totally disagree that we alone and that if it was proven that we wern't, religieon would still be with us i don't think people would lose there particular faith just because ET has landed

I am inclined to think that many would be disappointed to find that the man did not measure up to the legend.
Good point Nemesis, when I said 'alone' I really meant as in devoid of any overseeing all powerful deity rather than just 'the neighbours'.

science would have to find 'heaven', or be able to bring people back from the dead (afterlife) who could then give corrobarating evidence
