    i think the mayans were really the first to execute advanced math...maybe even math in general...

    With the first person who realized that having two of something was more than having one of something.

    math had to be around before mayans. I was thinking more of the egyptions.

    But aliens did it.

    Please prove, because I wouldn't buy that if it cost a penny and you gave me a dollar.

    I don't need to prove it.

    You don't need to?

    I'll take that as you can't. And you can't, because no such evidence exists. For one would have to pre-suppose aliens exist in the first place, which is not conclusive in it's own respect, so it is actually beyond assumption to say that they created math, far beyond it, so far I cannot fathom the words to describe such a thought.

    Also your signature is flawed in logic, despite the amusing play on words.

    Not necessarily, for one, there's at least presumptuous evidence that God existed, via Bible, legend, and various religions. Also, it makes sense logically that such an entity would exist..which is another debate..

    Also however, God is more than just a being sitting in the sky...people who are non-religious have difficulty understanding that belief in God surpasses this thought of him residing non-visual, unreachable place and existent only "outside" of reach. For belief in God is a relationship...it is a connection, on which cannot be described accurately, but rather is to be experienced first hand for comprehension...because of this, it leads to many misconceptions and such...and so, unlike an alien who's existence would be proven by scientific means, God exists in a spiritual sense, which is something to be experienced and not seen or felt (in the sensory fashion).

    For one to assume the same to be true for these "aliens" we would need to assume they were God-like...which is treading into dangerous territory...

    Suffice to say...there's more evidence for a God then there are for aliens, I was not dismissing the aliens, simply asking what proof exists for them..and assumed (with good reason imo) that none existed.
