Easy Answers & Cowards

Alexander the Atheist:
"Yesterday I witnessed an amazing thing. A fourth grade student asked a respected adult a question concerning Stonehenge and who was responsible for constructing it. Instead of saying 'no one knows' the adult in question quickly and confidently replied that aliens had constructed it. That's right, she believed extraterrestrials built Stonehenge; screw evidence and the fact that we just don't know for sure who was responsible for constructing Stonehenge. Sounds very similar to cowardly religious reasoning to me - just making things up rather than admitting you don't know the answer. (see humourous image below of an apparent construction spacecraft)."
