The ghosts will publish the story in a tabloid paper, but nobody will believe a ghost-written story.

The aliens will publish the story in an alien tabloid, but nobody reads alien tabloids, so the story will be unknown.

Aliens being anally probed by ghosts, that would be a funny reverse.

... are you talking extraterrestrial "aliens", or people foreign to the country they are currently in?

... and are the ghosts alien?

Tou mean aliens see alien ghosts. If the aliens have an intellect similar to the human race, some of them will pray to God, some will go Alien Ghost Busting, some will run out of fear and question science and others will just call it a rumor.

Aren't ghosts/angels/demons aliens? Assuming of course that souls aren't earth-bound

And wouldn't that make God an alien?

One would assume not, since ghosts and angels were presumably once living, thus once earth bound. If they originate from earth then they wouldn't be strangers.

I understand the idea of aliens as such who originate from somewhere else and in that case I guess you could say that God is one. We would have to ask where did God originate from but that would make things way too complicated.

What struck me as odd was discussing them as if they were real, not discussing them in general. Going into deeper arguments although it's rather pointless and irrelevant.

they very well could be real so why not discuss them as though they are?

Because no one has ever proven that they are, and since you can't prove something is not real I can't accept something as real if there is no proof of it.

I didn't see your edit. People have believed in a lot of things that aren't real in order to comfort themselves from questions too hard to answer. Mythology is where gods die.

It's not belief that plays a role really, you don't believe in a fact per se. A fact simply is, if I think something is true I base it on evidence or personal experience. I don't comfort myself in facts, if knowledge is updated and something that was believed as true is no longer so then I will accept the new evidence.

it's a little naive to think that what we know as facts today are truly "facts"

I like the idea that once you are no longer convinced of an idea you adapt your values and beliefs to the new discoveries. I do much of the same. And many people who believe different things than you probably agree

It's counter productive to be emotionally bound to your opinion and be upset when when what you want to be true is no longer so. If someone is truly intelligent, truly mature they will not stick to an opinion just because they like it.

Ok, and I followed up with agreeing with your agreement, as senseless that sounds, I like the page btw with the first picture, how egocentric of humanity to believe that it's so special.

Exactly. What makes us think we're so special? What makes us think we have any ability to come even close to the realities (or lack thereof) that the universe holds?

If by aliens you mean a very advanced civilization on a technological tier big enough to reach us then I think they wouldn't be surprised as they would be familiar with ghosts. ( if ghosts ever existed in this case )
