So it would really suck for intelligent aliens who were living in paradise to lose their paradise because of events on earth. Ergo, I don't think there are any aliens.

The position of the church is that only God can generate life, so if we're created in his image, why would he have gone to the trouble of creating intelligent extraterrestrials?

and if there's life on other planets
then i'm sure that He must know
and He's been there once already
and has died to save their souls

Unless, at some time in our past, we facilitated the spread of evil in the cosmos.  If so, there was likely a war.
