Alternatively, the Contact (1997) version of this:
- "Let's go to Mars!"
- "Does Mars believe in God?"
- "Lets find out what's on Mars!"
- "God isn't on Mars."
- "Let's mine Mars!"
- "The meek shall inherit the Earth, but not its mineral rights."
- "Let's meet aliens!"
- "Do the aliens believe in God?"

I'm glad we have bigger things to worry about nowadays than "We don't even know if these aliens believe in God". That's a genuine line from the movie. What a shame, why can't we have a nice movie about a stoner being entrusted to meet aliens.
