Can Religion on Earth Handle Discovering Intelligent Life on Other Worlds

Many human religions dictate that god created man and thus that makes mankind rather unique, special and in some cases religious doctrines claim divine. But what happens when we find additional life out there? What happens when we find intelligent life on other worlds? Can religion in human culture and society co-exist after telling us for 1000's of years that many is so inherently unique?.Many have brought up this question and indeed I have always considered the Human issues with their Religions and other life forms of intelligence out there. Seriously I do not see how they [religious folks] could not deal with this, as the could simply say that their chosen god was so powerful that life just spilled over to other worlds? Leave it at that, if it makes them happy.Recently this question re-emerged in an online think tank as a fellow thinker stated; "If there is a more intelligent race than ours perhaps they don't want us to know they exist.".

Indeed we are a rather hostile and warring species in that regard and problematic as well. Perhaps as one Sci Fi author states; "mostly harmless" but somewhat a species to be afraid of as we are always picking enemies to build a team; Too bad really.Hypothetically speaking, you wouldn't blame them, there are not a large percentage of humans who would be able to deal with it, I suppose, I guess I concur with you on this. I would not have a problem with it personally, but have met enough folks that would and know it could shatter their belief systems and emotionally take its toll. But if one is living a lie of a religion then one has to ask is it the right thing to do to; wake them up? I say it is, although, that question has been pondered by philosophers throughout time.

What say you about such things? Consider all this in 2006.
