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?

My question, Theland, was, //Don’t you think it’s rather arrogant to claim that this insignificant speck of dust that we call home is unique? //

Is it?
Arrogant? Well I understand you coming to that conclusion, but I respect those who look at probability and come to a different conclusion to mine, but I really do think and believe we are unique amongst the vastness of the universe.
//but I really do think and believe we are unique amongst the vastness of the universe//

So God created an unimaginably vast, universe, Millions of light years across, just so that he could have a few dedicated worshipers..like yourself...living on what is essentially a cosmic speck of dust?
Yep, makes perfect sense!
The heavens declare the glory of God. Why not?
//The heavens declare the glory of God//
How so? (Genuinely interested)
Galaxies collide, Asteroids decimate the planets, and the Earth in the past, comets likewise.
The universe is not very friendly...
But look up!
It is indeed glorious is it not?
The only things declaring my glory are a potted plant and magnolia walls!
Our own planet is subject to earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, thunderstorms etc. But apparently these are all because we live in a fallen world. If they happen elswhere in the universe its because they display the glory of God. Really?
//it is indeed glorious is it not?//
It is indeed, but no god neccessary.
Nature is wonderful enough on its own.
Well as I said, look up. Glorious or not?
Question Author
Theland, be honest; when did you last look up and see anything but your potted plant and magnolia walls? You really are a bluebottle.
Theland, //I really do think and believe we are unique amongst the vastness of the universe. //

Why?

Incidentally, the inhabitants of any planet will 'look up' and see a similar 'glorious' sight to the one you see.
Ah but is glorious magnolia!
(By the way, surely you are not comparing me to that odious insect that loves bins? Explain?)
Naomi, that is pure speculation, no evidence, but IF there were, yes they would.
Question Author
Theland, because you have no interest in anything other than your own little world.
//pure speculation, no evidence//

That sounds familiar, Theland. Ahhh ... I've got it. Just like god.
Atheist, my own little world?
Yes, I suppose you are right.
After all, I'm only interested in the whole universe from creation to the present, (and the future), the big, Cosmo, and the small, quantum, the bases of varying worldviews, materialist naturalism v theism, is Christianity, various philosophers and scientists that manage to for into my tiny little world.
Oh yes. Annswerbank too.
Fishing Naomi?
No, Theland. Realistic.
Realistic? When you can begin even attempting to answer some of the big questions, we can start again.
Theland, you mean when you're honest enough to say you don't know?
