Okay, I'll bite. If extraterrestrials want to get baptized I don't have a problem with it. However, there are some considerations with this.
Provided extraterrestrials exist, what makes you think that they would physically be able to tolerate water? I know it's just a movie but in
"Signs" water severely burned the extraterrestrials. If that turned out to be the case, would you use an alternate substance? Also, would baptism
really even be necessary? Jesus said that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
Also, what if the extraterrestrials had their own established religion? Why would they convert? Most of us wouldn't dream of giving up our religious
beliefs- especially for one that is completely alien to our own. Or maybe their religion is so completely different than ours that they find ours
childish. Or maybe they worship a giant rock and think worshipping an invisible guy in the sky is ludicrous.
I will give you this: your post has given me something new to think about,
