I'm not sure the aliens would be Christians. That would be a tough one to have since Jesus walked the Earth. I imagine the aliens would have something like Taoism. I doubt they would have a religion that was base on Earth bound references. Taoism seems like the only religion I know that would travel well through space.

Satanism.


Or self-worship...
Which is a lesser form of Satanism.

You can not say that because there have been no religions outside of earth. There is zero reference which to base your opinion.

Just out of curiosity, do you think "worship" is an absolutely necessary feature of having a religion?

Of course it would be conjecture. That's why this question is so much fun!

Gnosticism or nuthin'...

belief without proof is for Terran ape-men... well, and that one species of sentient psychedelic plant in the Spica system.

It could be Gnosticism. I didn't think of that one when I posted.

Btw, the favorite song of the species of sentient psychedelic plant in the Spica system:



I am obessed with this song. I've been listening to it every night while I post here.

To them, being highly guided and obvious forces controlling the reality is just the same as one person seeing the walls in their own room, it's not their religion, it's just regular state of mind, kind of boring and normal.

Their religion is just reaching as far up as their little minds are able, the same as a human does for their own religion.

What I mean is they find higher knowledge

The "hylic" maneuver is when friends step in to save your soul by grabbing you from behind and getting you to spit out bad dogma you have stuck in your throat choking you.

I would probably be classified as a hylic.

What religion does an ant have?

Or a bird?

Perhaps a dolphin...

Probably something similar to that.

That man is someone I would put absolute trust in and respect his authority with all my being. It's just so much easier when a strong leader tells you what to think.

They probably have moral debates over the prime directive. To probe, or not to probe, that is the question?

Maybe they would be Vulcan like and be all anal retentive about some rationale way of being. They would hate us!

They would follow the teachings of Kahless the Unforgettable.

All those who follow his way with honor shall join him in Sto-Vo-Kor.

I think aliens would be 1000 years more advanced technologically. I imagine they would have a very advanced and refined form of religion.

None. They would know that they weren't created by some mythical figure.
