technically this discussion doesn't even have to involve a persons personal religious beliefs or lack thereof.
rather, it is simply an imaginative brainstorming session wherein a person has posed a "if _____ is true then how does _____ fit into this picture?" type of question.
there's really no right or wrong, it's open-ended so long as any disbelief an individual has can be suspended for the duration of the discussion
until aliens or god land on earth with their arms waving around screaming "i'm right here!" or until we search the entire universe and find out once and for all the reality/fantasy ratio involved in the belief in religion or extraterrestrials, then saying either absolutely exist or do not exist simply isn't correct. both are sort of based on faith at the present time, so i'm sure the OP didn't mean to offend anyone

dumbest thread ever.
if their is aliens (i believe their is) . Surely their are more important questions to ask than wether or not they go to an imaginary make believe place when they die!!
if their are aliens, and they can read ATS, i bet their rolling about laughing at this question..
