Just out of curiousity, and not that I know how to handle the discovery of
life on other planets, how does your argument in this regard differ from one
that I have heard about our planet: Christianity is the way God chose to
deal with western culture, and Buddhism is the way God chose to deal with
the eastern culture? I have more comfort with using the world as a
demarcation point, but that assumes that there is a logical difference
between cultures on our planet and cultures on another. Perchance "species"
would be a better demarcator than planet.
