I applaud you for this stance - and, while what you are saying is of course true ("Nothing in the Bible eliminates the possibility") NO Christian ANYwhere, up to less than a decade ago would acknowledge the fact that there were any intelligent lifeforms other than human anywhere else in the universe - my, how times have changed.... quickly.

Did Jesus die for the sins of men on earth only? Does that mean life on other planets has never sinned? [[ I believe you would be doing yourself a big favor by sticking to earth for now ]]
Or did God send his only son Jesus to each and every planet in the universe at different times to die on a cross to save the sinners? Or could Jesus be like God and be everywhere at the same time?
What constitutes a sin on other planets? Do they have the same ten commandments as we do?
Does each planet have a quota for 144,000 people/life forms that can go on to heaven? Would it make you upset if you found out other planets were allowed 200,000?
Does each planet have their own version of a bible?
Did God maybe practice in creating life on other planets, starting with slime and working his way up to humans, and even more advanced life on other planets?
Maybe all these alien visitations are Gods way of having a family reunion and not everyone can make the date at the same time? After all, isn't time different on other planets? [[ I don't believe the "aliens" as you call them are from other planets, the most likely scenario is they are fallen angels .....but that doesn't mean God cannot have air/gravity ships too .....and these beings slip in and out of other dimensions....that's why they can be here one moment on radar, then just gone on the next blip ]]
Ok, I'm tired not thinking very clearly and I'm just jotting down some things running through my head. These questions might seem facetious, ( ok, some are) but they are valid questions. So many questions, so few answers.
Note to self: Don't post when extremely tired.
