YahooAnswers - Just the questions

As an blogger and atheist, I am always looking for ways to engage people in discussion. I decided that I might go on to Yahoo Answers and contribute to some of the questions people were asking.

On Friday (Nov 6,2009 - yesterday), around 8 PM I had created my account.
At 10:15, I received the following:

What will happen if God and Jesus turn out to be ALIENS? - Yahoo! Answers
Like God when I see him in paintings he is like in a flying saucer, so is Jesus when he is taken up to haven don't you think it is like the mother ship sending an anti gravitational ray to pick him up. When Virgin Mary is impregnated don't you think is like an alien abduction and they artificially inseminate her, and when God destroys all these towns the ''angels''(aliens) might be destroying the city weaponry , and when the Nephilin or angels breed with female apes I think it might be aliens having sex wit the female apes. The flying fire charriots of the Gods might turn out to be simply flying saucers.

Am I psychic, or do I just have a keen eye? - Yahoo! Answers

Every since I was little I've alway been able to connect to people on a way deeper level, even if I had met them that very day. I can always tell what a person is feeling, and get a general sense on why. Just by being around a person for a few seconds I can tell if their purpose is good or bad & what type of a person they are. Almost as if they have some sort of a glow to them. I can't explain it. Anyways I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.

Why do we have to be God's servants? - Yahoo! Answers
If I created a conscious, self aware robot I wouldn't force him to worship me. What kind of egotistical maniac is God anyway?

Why should i believe in the bible? - Yahoo! Answers
there is much evidence showing it is not legit. God never summoned ppl to put together it. I find it to be a manipulation of the religion because ppl put it together not some god.

Is a permanent loss of consciousness a bad thing? - Yahoo! Answers
It seems to scare people. The desire to live on is genetic... it spurs us to reproduce. Arguably, it spurs us to create all manner of things in an attempt to outlive our mortal bodies. Or to imagine a god, or a slew of them, to let us keep on keepin' on after death.

Fear of death is necessary to the extent that it keeps us from walking into traffic. But it doesn't have to be more than that. Why should the idea be frightening, when we lose consciousness every night while we sleep? We don't dream but a tiny fraction of the time in REM... the rest of the time, we're just... not there. Not our consciousness, anyway. And we really don't worry about it, 'cus we aren't there to worry. So why worry about the Big Sleep?

One of our contacts daughters has been diagnosed with the H1N1 virus. Can you send words of encouragement? - Yahoo! Answers

Any holes in Eckhart Tolle's teachings? - Yahoo! Answers
I'm completely drawn into his message, at a dangerous level. My perception of life is just so different now, and for the better.

I guess my ego is struggling to take back control now and, thus, is having me write this question with the hope that logic and analysis will force me to rationalize the need for my ego's existence.

I guess my real question is: Is anyone else a half-baked, half-awake, but still unsure Tolle follower? It scary to keep shifting in and out of awakened-ness. When will I settle in to pure awaked-ness? I'm not trying to push it, but being in limbo makes me self-aware of how others are perceiving my erratic shifting between my former ego-dominated self and my realized presence.
