If Aliens came to Earth

Recommended Posts

TheJkWhoSaysNi

Oh I love irony. People who will blindly follow a religion based on faith but wont even consider the possiblility that aliens could exist.

 

Anyway, most people have said what I would have. I think people will follow religion whatever happens, i mean look at the world today. We can explain how life appeard on earth and where humans came from yet people still believe in gods.

 

I'm not religious, but if i was i'd see it like this:

 

Aliens arent mentioned in [my holy book] so what?

Neither are computers, submarines, jet engines or electricity. Do these things existing mean that god doesnt because they're not mentioned in [whatever holy book].

 

 

The way I approach this question is by saying that "beginnings" and "ends" were created by humans. We humans think there is a start to something for everything we know. Like people being born, when this happened, when that happened... we're all based off history. The way I see it is that in terms of God, there is no true "beginning." God was just always there. I know that's kinda hard to comprehend but that's just how I view that whole "who created God?" issue. There just never was a "true beginning" of time. Think about it this way... if there was a start to "time" then when does it end? If everything has to have a "start" and "end," then when does time end? That's why I think God has always been existent.

 

There are several problems with the idea of god always existing. The most obvious, is if God can exist for ever, why cant the universe? Whether you consider the big bang, or creation both have the same problem. Something comes from nothing.

Ok, you (partially) answered this by effectivley saying god is outside time. If god is outside time then he must have created time as a whole. This means he knows what's going to happen. No free will for us. Contradicts one of the main beliefs in most religions. Also, if god knows the future, he knows who's going to heaven and who's going to hell so why create the universe in the first place (skipping the middle man as it were). To create time from the outside, it'd have to be created as a whole because otherwise you'd be inside time creating it as it went along. Obviously if god were in time, time would exist before God. Something from nothing again.

If aliens did come ro Earth. I think they wouldn't destory us. If there suppose ot be way more smarter, there would be no need for them to hurt us. Instead, of killing us, they may try to teach us somethings for there cultures or technogly.

Imagin if aliens came to earth and they had their own relegion that was identical to one of ours, wouldnt that help to prove that relegion is right?

 

but say they came here and had a completely different relegion to ours? I'd be asking why didn't god send a 'jesus' to those planets to preach his message?

Sorry for bringing an old topic up, but I have something to add...

Listen to my theory, as theories from others... They say life was created from an asteriod with bacteria on it, which crashed to earth and created life(as a theory)... So in my theory, wouldn't that asteriod had to have come from somewhere else which had the bacteria on it??? In that case, wouldn't that certain place also contain life as well, since it had to have come from somewhere(Asteriod) which had it(bacteria)??? I hope you understand it a bit, not too difficult?

no matter wut, religious ppl will believe that god created all forms of life, even though it may not have been stated in the bible that god created aliens. but wut if those same aliens believe in a god too jus like ours?

Disagree.

 

Most religions only believe that humans were the only race worth living on the earth, and everything evolves around them. Some religions don't even believe that dinosaurs exist, when we have bones of them sitting around in musems. Believe it or not, these religions are Christian. A very few amount of religions believe that there is more outside of the earth and our solar system. They can't explain why there are stars in the sky and still call them "Eyes of God". Matters get worse, some religions only belive that men were worthy enough to live on the earth, and women were machines to please a man and/or be used to maintain the family name. Which is why it's taken a while for women to have rights and be treated equal, but that's another story.

 

Religious people would have a fit, and think about commiting suside. Religion is not only used as a belief but as a security. Some people can't live with the fact that once you die, there is nothing left, which is an animal nature. We're scared of what we don't know. In result, knowing that aliens were here making a loop hole in their precious bible, koran, etc. some will freak out and cause extreme panic. Some will cover it up again, and refuse that they exist when they see them right infront of them.

 

I believe that we already have aliens living among us, and that we're being hid from it. Panic would cause chaos, and the world can't have that. Which is why we're hidden from it, and because religion is so important in life now, and the population would be 80% less if anyone knew that aliens were here.

 

Basically, reality would hit religious people, and everything would slowly turn into panic and chaos. I say though, if there arn't aliens among us ( Which I think is false ) the only way to prevent this from happening, is finding aliens before they find us. Makes sense, no?

Ok, I was just talking the other day with some mates about Aliens etc. And we were talking about what would happen to religion if Aliens were actually proven to exist.

Firstly, Christians believe that God created the Earth, and its inhabitants. So if Aliens were proven to exist, who would have made them?

Surely there isnt anything in the bible about God creating Aliens. So what would Christians say about where the Aliens came from?

I dunno, I just think its a rather interesting topic. I think religion would lose a sh*tload of credibilty (even more than it has now).

 

 

Christians would just rewrite the bible to include aliens. lol

 

Religious people aren't interested in facts and hard evidence, they'll always come up with some nonsense to explain things in a religious context.

A bump from 2005 to post sub-D&D quality posts/replies? Well below average.
