I told her that it would turn the world on its side knowing that life extends beyond our planet, not to mention the world's idea of "God" would
have to be re-examined.
I doubt that those who truly believe in God would have to re-examine their beliefs... Because those of us that have "found" God, KNOW that God is
Anyone who claims to 'believe' says so, because there is still an element of doubt in their minds.
A good friend of mine, taught me that when one comes to know God, you have no doubt in your mind about God.
As such, through my search for truth and fact, I have learned to accept that God is so powerful and infinite, that there is more than likely going to
be life on other planets. Otherwise He would have made a rather dull and empty universe for us to explore... In addition, I do not for one monent,
believe that life is as 'straight forward' as we are led to believe.
It is my opinion that life (and intelligent life at that) has evolved more than once on this planet. I also reckon that some of that intelligent life
once left this planet, and colnised other bodies in our solar system. Then for some reason, that life was extinguished. I am only regretful that our
governments do not see that we should explore the areas of interest at Cydonia in more detail, and so on...
But as an often quoted part of the Bible says; eventually "there is nothing hid that shall not be laid bare"...
One day mankind will know all, and our eyes will really be opened on that day. I just hope that I am around to see it.
