"I'm shocked at the countless hundreds of millions of dollars that have been spent over the years in the desperate and fruitless search for extraterrestrial life. Even Bill Nye 'the Science Guy,' in our recent debate, happily gloated about tax dollars being spent toward this effort. And now, secular scientists are at it again.

"Of course, secularists are desperate to find life in outer space, as they believe that would provide evidence that life can evolve in different locations and given the supposed right conditions! The search for extraterrestrial life is really driven by man's rebellion against God in a desperate attempt to supposedly prove evolution!

"The Bible, in sharp contrast to the secular worldview, teaches that earth was specially created, that it is unique and the focus of God's attention (Isaiah 66:1 and Psalm 115:16). Life did not evolve but was specially created by God, as Genesis clearly teaches. Christians certainly shouldn't expect alien life to be cropping up across the universe."

-- Young-Earth Creationist "leader" Ken Ham, arguing in a Sunday blog post that the space program is a waste because aliens can't possibly saved by Jesus Christ.
