← Aliens need Christ's redemption, too

I find this article unbelievably parochial. It's as if a black curtain enveloped him at the moment of his conversion, stunting his imagination.

In any case, imagining that God selected a lowly stable for His cradle is no harder and no different than imagining God selected a lowly world for His cradle; the difference is only in the magnitude of what one's imagination can grasp.
Both these scenarios are equally unlikely.

Most of the article he's arguing against himself. He's pointing out the improbability of things on the scale of the universe, and comparing them to the improbability of aspects of Christian mythology. All this does is show how improbable the Christian myths are. The logical resolution of which is that they aren't true.
