Does religion somehow address the possibility of existence of intelligent live somewhere else? I think not. It just couldn’t. Religion was being coined during the time of Ptolemaic system of the Universe when the Earth was in the center of the entire cosmos and the stars where no more than candles attached to the celestial sphere. Where those aliens could be dwelling in this little, static and very boring world?
But do aliens exist in the first place? Well, this is a very strange question indeed. Of course nobody knows the correct answer. But this is not the reason to deny the existence of life anywhere else in the entire cosmos. I for example think that one of the reasons why we haven’t been contacted so far is precisely religion. Imagine those super intelligent beings capable of crossing interstellar or even intergalactic space, checking the Earth in their telescopes and seeing all these rubbish that is going on here? What would they tell each other? I think something like this:
- Well bro, these primitive bipedals are so dumb! They still serve idols and kill each other for their sake! I ain’t going there, are you?
- No way, it would be a waste of time. I stay too.
