Please don't assume I am a nut-job for bringing this up, but I have always had a fascination with the stars. I enjoy watching documentaries on astronomy and anything space based really.

What I wonder occasionally is that if, hypothetically speaking, we discover life on other planets would that then refute religion and their beliefs? I know it might not destroy all religions but it should surely cause a blow to those like Christianity and Islamic religions.

go figure, the only part of the bible I bothered to read
some psalm 82:6 too, that's pretty schizophrenic stuff
The bible is loaded with stuff that could easily be interpreted as beings from space coming down and going up. Daniel describes "the glory of the lord" going up and the top half looked like shiny metal, and the bottom half was a pillar of fire.

The best part is if we found aliens, they visited, and then said, "oh look, a big book full of what we were doing a few millenia ago!" Finding out their god was really an alien visitor would be a hard one for them to overcome. The shock of it not being an all powerful being, I mean.
