  • I think a bunch of missionaries would go try to convert them ASAP.

  • I guess that they will explain that God made more then one planet fo us to live on. That part of the Bible must have been lost threw time.

  • I mean, to life on other planets, cuz that's where the earth comes from, out there. Our real past exists out there in the vast universe. Religion? that would be like, what was that? We are talking about light years beyond belief.

  • Do you think the life on the other planet would have their own bible, god and stories because their situation was different or would the basis of their beliefs be the same?

  • For some yes it would. For me no, it's very arrogant to think that we are the first or last.

  • Well,since it's not about religion,it's about a relationship with God, I doubt anything would change. If the new planet believed in God, life would go on as usual. If they don't, not sure what would happen.

  • I must agree. The church would round up a bunch of missionaries and they'd hop on a little speaceship and go convert them.

    But what if the aliens on the other planet believed just as hard in their deity?
