    Does life on other planets disprove the BIble

    Inspired by this story:

    The Associated Press: Vatican looks to heavens for signs of alien life

    If life -is- found on other planets, does this disprove the Bible's story of Creation?

    Please be sure to explain your response

    No it doesn't disprove the bible, as far as I know there is no passage saying that this is the only planet with life on it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    No, I don't think it does. Bible is mighty non-specific in matters that don't concern life here on Earth and the account of Genesis might refer only to creating this planet and the life forms upon it.

    Also nothing saying he didn't create other planets with other life forms on them without telling us.

    It wouldn't bother me or shake my faith at all.

    I believe that, whatever the details, all of creation began with the will of God.

    If there turn out to be alien lifeforms, then obviously God created them and they are somehow part of His plan for the universe.

    Like James, I do not know of any solid scriptural reason to find the two incompatible.

    (shrug) Allegory or literal, I don't fret over it. I'll ask God to fill me in on the details when I see Him. In the meanwhile, Faith.

    yes, because the whole idea of a God creating a people is ridiculous to begin with. And life on another planet will prove to all that we are not unique.

    No, the Bible disproves the Bible. The Bible isn't consistent with scientific fact.

    Fact: The world-drowing flood described for Noah....didn't happen.

    Period.

    That's it.

    No flood.

    The myth is....a myth, not true.

    End of argument.

    Was Mary's hymen allegorical? You have to take that article on faith.

    But the Bible contains known factual errors, so it cannot be taken on faith.
