But at least aliens might actually exist.  :LOL:

Possibly and even probably they exist, but we will never be able to prove that because they are sooo faaaar from earth that they have no means to come here even if they are able to travel at the light's speed;
To imagine that we may encounter them is sterile speculation. Until now since the man dwells on the earth, such encounters never happened. Since the man is able to listen to the space's radiowaves with his big eared radiotelescopes (almost since 50 years), he never could put in evidence any intelligent signal.
The Scriptures are dumb on the issue: That means that it is highly improbable that any purported aliens are scheduled in God's plans on Earth.
Yes, that's sterile speculation and waste of time.

God's "plans on earth" are equivalent to God's plans for the entire universe.  Jesus' sacrifice echoed throughout all of existence.  There is no intelligent life in outer space, it just doesn't fit into Christian theology, not matter how you try to force it.  WE, the earth and humanity, are at the center of it all - WE constitute "God's plan."  We were the one's created in the "image and likeness of God," and green or grey space-men do not share in this with us - to believe otherwise would be to believe that there was a "space Mary" and a "space Jesus."
