If there is intelligent life on other planets, they might well have religions. Do christians here think that god would have sent them a version of Jesus?

A quick check with google confirms there are at least 200 billion galaxies containing unimaginable billions of planets - our galaxy alone hosts at least 100 billion. Don’t you think it’s rather arrogant to claim that this insignificant speck of dust that we call home is unique?

''Nebulous facts?''
Once again we come back to prophecy.
When you get a chance, theland, if you would like...
What do you think of this one? It is quite long, and I couldn't decide which to post... but try this?

Pixie - Thank you.
Yes you have opened up a massive subject of psychology, commonly used by cults. Bit we are all subject to suggestion throughout our lives.
A false religious experience is certainly common, and the money preachers are experts at manipulating people to control them.
Jordan Peterson is well worth watching too, and get a flavour of the myriad complex forces that influence us.
Are we hard wired to believe? Yes I think so, as made in the image of God, we have His fingerprint on us.
Indeed a more lengthy reply is warranted, but bound by short posts of course.
This is absolutely nothing to do with cults, theland. It is purely psychology. Personally, I would recommend you watch every one of his, just so you know there aren't stooges, actors etc. It just depends how much "research" you want to do. But I know you watch youtube, so, as, if and when. Would be interested in your views, as long as you don't dismiss it, without actually seeing it.
I watched the whole video.
Mrs T likes him, so we have watched a few programmes of his together.
No, I certainly do not dismiss him.
I did not post until I had watched the full 48/minutes :-)
Sorry for derailing, atheist. That probably should have been a different thread.
In answer to the OP, it's quite possible. We seem to assume that life on other planets, would only be possible where they have water or oxygen... which seems quite presumptuous to me.
I'm not a Christian, but if any religion is right and makes sense... "intelligent life" will obviously come to the same conclusion.
Thank you, theland :-). I suspect we should be posting somewhere different for psychology. Although... I'm not sure where, on here...
Any views on the psychology of why and how people choose to believe?
Society and culture would be apt for trick cycling.
(Need to think for a bit.)
Sorry theland, what nonsense.Are we hard wired to believe? Yes I think so, as made in the image of God, we have His fingerprint on us.


I was made in the image of my parents.
No worries. I have actually just emailed the ed, to ask for a Psychology category, as many sub sections are difficult to find from a phone. (Should keep nailit happy too...)
We all were, sparkly... but we also have a need for pattern and meaning... all of us do... we just find it differently.
Sparkly - Cheers for that comment, which I'm sure you have excellent reasons to believe / disbelieve.
Wouldn't life be odious if we were all the same?
