What if aliens were to make contact tommorow, and they began preaching of some religion other than yours (Say, hinuism, ancient egyptian, hell, even raelianism...)? How would you react?

It might throw the world in chaos. I do not follow a religion, so it would not really bother me. Imagine all the religons of the world. They would be ready to go to war with the aliens for challenging what they believe. For awhile, the world would be very unstable.

Chaos would be an understatement, It would disprove so many theories and forms of religion.

With total surprize.  I would be totally surprized, amazed and shocked that a people who could bridge the stars would still be superstitious enough to support religions! blink.gif

I agree with EricCraven2003 it wouldn't bother me as I don't follow one as well.

If they could come across a universe, how advanced in technology must they be. So how are you going to kick their ass, wabbit?? devil.gif

^I also agree^

education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary.
Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear
of punishment and hope of reward after death."

They took the time to come here, might as well hear them out.

If they don't care whether or not we convert the religion they preach, then I say wave good bye to them and move on with your life.

If they hold guns to our heads and tell us to either convert or die, I suspect we'll have a nice little holy war.

Also, we're assuming that they do support a religion. No matter how unlikely you may think it is, that's the point of this thread.

I would hug em and squeeze them and talk to them. I love aliens as if they were one of us. Why would it be different then a person trying to sell their religion?

I would accept them and ask them to help out the humans here on Earth who are sick and if they had treatments more advanced then ours.
