So as I was waiting for my staff meeting having water cooler conversation (without the water cooler) among 3 pastors, a youth group student, and a college student, the topic of aliens arose. So being a student of Apologetics myself, I posed an apologetic question, a question that I used to ponder back in middle school when I had no more manga to read and was bored out of my mind. If aliens really did exist, would Christianity still be true? Why or why not? OR to put it more personally: If, one day, you encountered an alien, would you denounce your religion (assuming Christianity but other religions are welcome too!)? Why or why not?
So before taking comments, which is what I would like people to do, there are some parameters that need to be agreed upon, and they are:
1) We assume that these extraterrestrials are intelligent beings, if not more at least just as much as humans.
2) We assume that there is no way of knowing whether ‘image of God’ applies for them.
Let the arguments commence! Comment away!
