What would religinous people do when our world has contact with non-human beings (aliens)

i just saw an documentary about an other world similar to earth, and they have proof that there are living creatures ( very creepy and ugly )

so would that mean that believing in a god is hopeless, just like it is now...?

Report as

There's no such story. It would be biggest story in world. Anyway, they would just make up more excuses to believe what they want, the way people do.

God is the Creator of ALL things. If there were aliens (I personally don't belive there is) then he would have created them too. hope has been restored!

shut up and give me proof ----> this needs to contain:

- a photo or video with him in it.
- a fact why we (humans) were not made by evolution
- why wouldn't there be any other life-forms in the universe?

iam sorry we talking about aliens which you have no proof of.as far as Jehovah God, look around you and see his glory! ps evolution does not show proof of how life began. you cannot take something inanimate and it become alive on it's own,you need the power and wisdom of our most high God.

The bible is written by men through Gods instruction, the Holy Spirit. I'm not going to argue. Enjoy your alien friends.

Summer, you were not standing beside the bible's authors and would never know that it was written through god's word. The bible was written by man, no different than the Greek's story of Zeus.

Why do you guys try so hard to tell someone they are wrong? Mr imperfect why are you so angry? You have such built up hatred for religious people why? Please just read some of the bible. Whether you believe or not just read some of it look at what we believe, I have taken biology in high school and reviewed Darwin's theory and his book the origin of species by natural section. I do see the points you make but I choose religion look at both sides before you judge.

As a Christian,I view aliens as fallen angels and have been here mating with mankind, just like they did in the day's of Noah,only this time they won't be giants they will look like us, the second coming of Christ will be like in the day's of Noah when fallen angels and man mated and bore giants,that people worshiped called the Nephilim. Aliens fit right in the picture.

There is no proof of living creatures yet, I'm not sure what network would air a documentary like that. Anyway, I would imagine that theists would try their best to condemn the idea of extraterrestrial life... claiming it to be blasphemy and shrug it off their shoulders. It won't be long until scientists discover life somewhere else in the universe (most likely in the form of bacterial life). We'll just have to wait and see what the theists do... I'm sure it'll be quite a spectacle.

As a religious man I do believe there are aliens out there somewhere, but I believe GOD also created them but is keeping that and many other things secrets from people on earth at least that's my take on it. I can tell you didn't want any answers you just want to argue with Christians, Why does it seem atheist people are the ones that always want to argue and they try to tell religious people they are wrong? So whose shoving ideas down other peoples throats this time?

I don't know what you were watching, but they have yet to have any proof of any alien life. I think it is very pious of humans to think that in this vast universe we are the only life, but we have as yet not found any.

I can assure you, people who believe in God have plenty of reason for it, and faith in God is definitely not hopeless. And adding other planets with life only means to them that God created more. And I think that the only reason you even asked this question was to spark arguments.

You are misinformed. What was discoved via deep space telescopes on satellites is a planet in another star system situated the right distance from its sun so that theoretically it MIGHT support life as earth does. Its so far away tho that they havent actually seen the surface and know very little about it or its atmosphere.
You need to get off of YouTube and get a real life. 98% of everything on YouTube is a big, huge scam. Anyone can put anything there they want no matter how ignorant or fictional. Ditto for the internet in general. If ANY life had been discovered anywhere but earth it would be ALL OVER the media. If life forms larger than bacteria had actually been discovered it would be the media sensation of the century. No way theyd leave that alone. Yet, BIG surprise - not a single peep about it on any media - local, national or international. Because its NOT REAL!!!!
To answer your original question tho - God created ALL things, everything in the Universe belongs to Him, is there because of Him. His creation is not limited to earth only. So if new life is discovered elsewhere we would do the only proper thing and praise God for His amazing power and awesomeness in this newly discovered creation of His. Just as we do on the rare occasion when a new animal species is discovered here on earth.

Religionists, as their gods, are mostly immune to facts and incapable to advance. They keep their backs to the sun, and guards with miser's care the sacred falsehoods of ignorance.


However, judging by what the believers has been doing so long, I think, their probable actions are three upon such instances:


1) They will immediately resort to denial. At the same time, they will try in countless ways to suppress the fact. Then, the fact being too great to deny, they will try to disprove the claim by resorting to sophistry, and denounce the credibility of the claim by trying to assassinate the characters of those who found the fact. Failing to pursue this infamy any longer, in the presence of undeniable and verifiable truths, they are apt to take any of the following courses:

2) They will claim to have suddenly stumbled upon some new meanings of their old texts to show us (at least they will think) that bible contains a prophecy about aliens coming in contact with humans in some allegorical sense; or,


3) You will wake up one fine morning to learn that inside a secret chamber of a never explored mountain top or under the remotest depths of unknown Atlantic, a whole/partial manuscript (written, of course, in a different language other than Hebrew) of a long lost bible there will be found, that says aliens were only obvious to be discovered in "the fullness of time"!!


The spirit of believers remains the same as ever. Most of them are like boa constructors -- what they cannot dodge, they will swallow -- and anything they cannot swallow, they will invariably dodge.

.. if God intended for humankind to meet alien life, He would have outlined these encounters in the Bible, along with an answer to what He has done for them regarding sin. Many atheistic and evolutionary scientists hope for alien life because it would give credence to their worldviews. Perhaps they understand that sentient alien life would cause serious problems with creationism and the Christian faith. The idea that humanity is unique in the universe is a key aspect of a biblical and Christian worldview. I am surprised by how many Christians are unaware of how important it is that God has made us unique. While it may be entertaining to enjoy movies and media that introduce alien life as a story element, these ideas should not be taken any more seriously than the existence of Hobbits or Wookies. They are products of the vast, creative human imagination-not God's ultimate truth.http://www.blogos.org/gotquestions/alien-life.php

No matter what is discovered, no matter what science uncovers, no matter what degree of contradiction, the theists will find ways to weave their dogma into it. Always have, always will.

What do aliens have to do with religion? I don't know about others, but we Muslims have always believed that there are other non-human creatures out there. If anything, coming in contact with aliens would be proof we can use to show atheist once again that God exists. We've always known that God has creatures other than human out there. He is the Creator of ALL things in the universe and BEYOND.

The Vatican is already getting ready for the Alien visitation. Catholicism will have a big part in introducing a new doctrine once the extra terrestrials show up. As for true bible believing Christians, there faith will not be shaken, they are expecting this to happen already. It's the great deception talked about in the bible.

Thinking that exo-life will never be discovered is very silly. There may be no life on the 400 planets we've discovered, but you can't hold that claim for the trillions of planets that exist. And how many moons do you think are in the universe? I dare say the number spills over into the quadrillion marker.

I am a Christian and I think it would an amazing thing to find an extraterrestrial being. I personally don't think it would prove evolution anymore than us discovering the giant squid, there certainly could be life on other planets, that does not mean they are smarter than us. It just means God made them fit for that planet. Just like a fish, just because they can breathe under water unlike humans, it does not mean they are smarter, just means they are fit for that place.
