84% of the world population has faith or follows some form of organized religious practice, a third are Christian.
A significant percentage of such are apt to get their religious sensibilities bent out of shape should they discover that they are not the only special little creature chosen by God, or that there are others from other places/planes that do not necessarily subscribe to there way of thought.

Our souls arent from here either. Actually, we are just sojourners here. Most dont get that at all.

I didn't say the universe was empty. In fact I think there is a lot out there we haven't discovered. And the rest of your comment is your opinion.
Several times down through the years prominent astronomers have spotted a planet in our solar system that orbits the sun opposite us. It is normally blocked from view by the sun, but is observable from time to time. They may have come from there. If you are waiting for the government to tell you, don't hold your breath

If the US Government, along with many other Governments stated, unequivocally, that yes, aliens do in fact exist, how would it change your life on a personal level.
First of all, just saying "aliens do in fact exist" is not enough.
Are they on a far away system? On the Solar System? On a nearby planet? On Earth?
Are they intelligent (as far as we can define intelligence)? Are they advanced? Are they friendly or aggressive?
My reaction would depend on knowing the answers to those particular details, but, in general, it wouldn't make a difference to me. Religion? I am an atheist. Outlook on life on this planet? Why would it change?
