The further we grow into the future, the more technological/scientific we become and the less god fearing our species has become as a whole. Just a few hundred years ago everyoneï¿½s daily life was filled with religion and the fears of what would happen to you if you did not heed god/gods will. People were murdered left and right for not buying into religion, but today it is becoming less and less a part of our lives if at all. I can only assume that as long as we continue to advance technologically, we will also have less and less of a need for religion to explain things in our lives.
Now look a few thousand or even hundred thousand years down the time line and ask yourself if this current trend will grow. Of course we will never live to see the distant evolution of our own common beliefs and customs, but what about an advanced species that may be visiting us? Could they have gone beyond their own need for a god figure in order to explain the unknown for them and used science to prove things that, at our current level of intelligence, we would consider supernatural?
Further more if they made themselves publicly known and stated that they have found that there is no god, would the religious organizations of this world refuse them and possibly say that the aliens were actually devils?

My friends, we come from one source, GOD. I don't just mean us here on earth, I mean every race that exists. We are soul carriers. We have not
made the discovery of the scientific soul yet here on earth, but we will.
Religion as we know has done nothing but separate us on earth. The original writings were written with good intentions but not really understood, as well as being changed to manipulate by various leaders
later on. GOD can only do good from love. Evil does not exist like we think,
we make choices, right or wrong. Some will label a wrong choice as evil,
but none the less it is still a choice. There is a voice inside of you if you
listen carefully that will let you know we are all connected. We all originate
from on source. Soon we will learn the abilities to be able to connect with
our source through our superconcious. I am speaking of a scientific soul.
Yes, our soul exists scientifically. Aliens are our brothers and sisters from
other times and other places. Time is not only linear like we think, it
is vertical and horizontal and moves dynamically. We will cross the bridge
soon, and when we do we will gain an understanding that will give the
majority a choice to make. Let's hope it is a good one. I have faith that
it will be a good one. Humanity will change for the better. Understanding

I don't believe that they need religion at all.And surely,in my humble opinion,not as WE think of religion....but i still think that they will have their own questions about some of the problems we think about.You know,the small things like origin of life,universe,time and space
This was meant to be answer to your question,but reading the replies i have to add :
DjNothing,my thoughts exactly.But i don't think that the transition will destroy us "all"..i think is going to be very hard for the hard core religious believers.
Ksnazdnzon Doesn't it say here Deny Ignorance ?.I find yoru reaction to digorius post a little bit over the edge.If you might be the same like me,i don't think you hate "God", i think you're tired of the ones trying to tell you what God means( i look at it as a concept,sometimes that God could very well be my own power and my own brain,if it solves problems for me,or it gives me answers to my questions).After all,it doesn't seem to me that digorius was trying to push any ideas on us ( and even if he tried,he wouldn't have succeded ).He was just expressing his opinion.
My two cents.
