    Among predictions for the U.S. in 2007:

    -25 percent anticipate the second coming of Jesus Christ.

    -19 percent think scientists are likely to find evidence of extraterrestrial life.

    Well Jesus keeps crossing the southern borders and no matter how many times we send him back he keeps on coming back....so it's a bit past a "second coming"

    As for extraterrestrial life, does that include bacteria?

    I personally think it unlikely they will find evidence next year but I do believe that with all those solar systems out there it's more likely that there is life than there isn't.

    I don't believe we have been "visited"

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    When you see something like the first one, it makes you realise how important the religious vote is out there, it also makes it rather scary to think that there are people actively working towards causing Armageddon.

    that's what i thought. no wonder bush doesn't worry about the future, he doesn't anticipate there being one

    I don't think that scientists finding evidence of extraterrestrial life is that far-fetched; they've already discovered evidence of water on Mars. It may not be ET, but bacteria counts.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    maybe the point is that more people think it's possible that jesus will come

    Yeah, but they see Jesus returning as being evidence of extra-terrestrial life.

    It's pretty much difinitive proof, if you think about it.

    I'm glad it's not the kind of thing I think about.

    Odd. I would figure the percentages to be higher.

    I think it is kind of a tradition to predict the second coming just to be on the safe side - if you say it won't happen then it just might, sort of thing It never seems to bother them much if it doesn't though.

    If Jesus did return nobody would believe it was him anyway
