      Close minded brainlet take

      People think that if extraterrestial intelligent life were to be discovered, religions would just collapse, which is completely moronic and just showcases how ignorant atheists are of the religion that they're so supposedly above. In the case of Christianity, the existence of aliens would have next to no impact to its message. Christianity would just be deemed as the religion of mankind, in a similar way that Judaism is the religion of the israelites without any implication for non-Jews.

      Good take.

      You'll probably live long enough to be forced to actually reckon with tough questions, because there will be sapient artificial intelligences in a matter of decades. Enjoy dogmatic ignorance while it lasts.

      These are hard questions that, where we to encounter alien life, would have to be debated by many people much more learned than I am However, here are my speculations:
      >Do they have souls?
      This would depend on how culturally compatible the aliens are to humanity at time of encounter. Also deeply tied to the last two questions.
      >Did God create them in his image?
      There is an argument to be made that perhaps that was the case: God is already a single oneness composed of three non-equivalent coequal and coeternal divine persons, why wouldn't God be simultaneously Human and simultaneously alien?
      >Should they be baptized?
      If no christianity analogue exists and if the soul question is a yes. Then maybe?
      >Did Jesus die for their sins?
      If christianity analogue then this does not matter, but if not then, I guess? Unless we want to revise christianity's claim of universality.

      A great deal of the cosmology (and assumptions there-in) would have to be revised, modtly stuff in the early parts of genesis.
      Unless, providentially, it is discovered that a religion similar-ish to christianity exists. In which case the christians will just pivot to that being confirmation of God creating both species and giving both of them saviors.
      The other religions of the world are probably getting shafted if that's the case, though.

      Religion would not collapse, but a major re-adjustment would be in order.

      Sidestepping the question doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

      It's not just atheists who are "ignorant of the religion they're so supposedly above" it seems.

        I wasn’t joking, whatever these things are they’re deceitful and always making themselves both accessible in remote places and just non-human enough to confuse us.

      Aliens are demons

      This is a much more interesting way of giving a non-response to the question.
      Admittedly, from a christian standpoint, it is something that you have to take into account. That said, the current wave of aliens=Demons thought is essentially reactionary hysteria. This is not to say there are no people who have rationally come to that conclusion. But they are not currently the majority.

        They have no consistency is the problem. They’re probably servitors of a larger thought form.

          I think most UFO sightings/encounters are explainable as hallucinations most of the time. Or misappraisals of other phenomena.
          Doesn't help that there's also liars interspersed among the real accounts.

          >aliens=Demons thought is essentially reactionary hysteria
          That's what they were for thousands of years. Le "demons are Martians" is a rebranding from the 50s. No fricking aliens live on Mars so these "aliens" are nothing more than LARPers with a deeper agenda.

          >That's what they were for thousands of years. Le "demons are Martians" is a rebranding from the 50s.
          Doesn't mean that they were correct. Or that there was anything supernatural or extra-terretrial there at all. UFOs and strange ocurrences like this date to at least the 19th century, and they were rarely dismissed as demons. This is irrelevant, however, because I am not talking about this, I'm talking about the recent modern ohenomenon of calling many things (including aliens) demons. Which is just reactionary hysteria from puritans and whatnot.
          >No fricking aliens live on Mars so these "aliens" are nothing more than LARPers with a deeper agenda.
          Non-sequiteur but I'm willing to hear you out, what have you read, seen, or heard that makes you think they are demons?
          I'm a novice in this.

            LOL no. This shit has been going on for as long as human history.
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1561_celestial_phenomenon_over_Nuremberg
            Read Jacques Vallée's work. These beings have been with humanity for a long time. Demons, angels, djinn, fairies, spirits, elves are the words humans used to call them. Aliens, Martians, and Extraterrestrial were words developed recently to describe the same phenomena as humanity entered the Space Age and started having increased fascination over other planets and stars. Fruitless endeavors to find answers in the cosmos is shifting humanity's focus back internally.

            Assuming all these encounters are true, the only thing this substantiates is the rather horrific possibility that there is a class of things that enjoys fricking with us and does so for sport. Rather than them being devils or part of a defined cosmology. Regardless, I mantain they very well could just be optical tricks, hallucination, or misunderstanding.
            >. Aliens, Martians, and Extraterrestrial were words developed recently to describe the same phenomena as humanity entered the Space Age and started having increased fascination over other planets and stars.
            The fascination with the stars has been an old trend since the renaissance or before. War of the worlds was written long before the space age.
            >Fruitless endeavors to find answers in the cosmos is shifting humanity's focus back internally.
            A serach for answers that will devolve into fruitless mysticism! Momentous things in the field of nothing-ever-happensology.
            Inward or outward, there still is no conclusive proof or satisfactory answer to this in sight.

    It really depends on what kind of lifeform we're talking about. If they are like plants or fungi, then I don't think they can be incorporated into Christianity. If they are mobile then there might be a chance, but it depends on how their consciousness operates. If it's an individualized consciousness (where each creature has its own consciousness) then I think they can be baptized and accepted into Christianity. If one being communicates on behalf of a collective (sort of like queen bee verses the drones but more integrated), then I don't really see how they can be incorporated.

      Here's how actual demons talk:
      >What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!
      >What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!
      >demons came out of many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God!"

    this is why religions only make sense in a flat closed earth surrounded by a firmament where outer space doesn't exist. if you get rid of the flat earth, religions make zero sense.

    >If aliens exist:
    You can't generalise and just say "Aliens", I'm certain there are multiple alien species in our solar system, all very different from one another.
    From that realisation you can just answer all those questions by "depends on the species".
    If schizos are right some aliens flee in terror when you start talking about Jesus and shit, so you can guess they're demons, but I'm not sure about the other species
