How would discovery of life on another planet affect religion here?

The discovery of a possible life-bearing planet could have religious implications

I think there is other life then we have experienced. The reason I say this is that both times I 'saw' god there was other worldly intelligence about. It's to hard to explain the experiences properly.

Isn't god supposedly the creator of all that is seen and unseen? Aliens would just be that unseen bit... until we see them. lol

I'm not sure why this would affect religion at all.

Embrace the impossible.

Because of all the planets in the universe, Earth is special.  God made man in his image.  The Christian religions have awasy stated that we are special.  Even though we are animals, they have taught for centuries that of all the creatures on the Earth, only humans have souls, other animals do not.  Proof of other life, especially  intelligent life could turn this all upside down.

Save the Earth! It's the only planet with chocolate!

  • There is no nonsense so arrant that it cannot be made the creed of the vast majority by adequate governmental action.

Well it would certainly shake things up for the Jews as Gods "chosen people" and as for the Pope.... well.... I wonder if he would say they were "brothers" if they turned out to worship Satan (or their own equivalent)

I think it's only very recently that religion was forced to say 'oh sh!t, there could be life on other planets, we better quickly make an interpretation of the bible etc. to cover our arses and the potential loss of belief in god'.

Suggest life on planets at other times in history and you would probably be accused of blasphemy, or something similar, and disposed of.

I dont think religion will change in any fundemental way. They will simply incorporate the new information into the existing beliefs. The one thing tho, and the most profound thing in my mind. I think it might jump start a race of sorts to colonize planets by religious groups. Everytime a new place was discovered here on earth religious groups were some of the first explorers and pioneers. Always racing to a new place where they can setup a society that is based purely on their values and traditions only. Where the groups need not answer to any other authority but there church and leaders. But thats my opinion and thought on this.

If god created man in his image (actually I am not religous but I have read the bible and it says. ''let us make man in our image'')  then maybe man has been created on many planets throughout the universe just to see how they all turn out?

Well I admit I know very little about whats in the Christian Bible, but it's interesting. I'd love to see some verses mentioning our planet as special.

Why not to exist another planet like Earth? Just because scientists they see dots the stars. This means science has many years to advance the technology to prove that. Me even if exists another planet like Earth I wouldn't like to live even there. This is an example of your ideology that you know everything. But in conclusion scientists don't know everything and is a mistake to believe anything that they are saying in theory. To find out that I have to become an Angel in the after life and find out what the Angels are saying to me, you are not alone but you haven't realised that yet. Probably they haven't find anything else except of what you can see.

  • It's good to be mildly skeptical to remain sane. But too much of it will make you a douche.

Unfortunately here you don't understand when we speak with a spirit as a medium. Go find a way to speak with spirits like Angels. They don't like you as you treat me.
