The discovery of intelligent creatures in the universe will be surprisingly exciting in many areas, but there is one area that seems to be worried about the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligent creatures. This is the religion of the world. It should be said that extraterrestrial intelligent creatures are a special dilemma for them, or theologians should ponder the concept of interstellar travel. This issue may be the worst news for Christians. This is because in the Christian belief system it is not easy to allow extraterrestrial intelligent creatures to exist in the universe. At the beginning of this month, it was held by the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the U.S. Department of Defense. At the "Hundred Years of Galaxy" seminar, a Christian thinker made a speech when discussing humans’ navigation to other star systems.
Weidemann, a philosophy professor at Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, is a Christian believer. He believes: If there are intelligent alien creatures, did Jesus die for the Klingons? (The Klingons are a fictitious alien race in "Star Trek" and were originally enemies of the Interstellar Federation in the plot.) The existence of intelligent alien creatures has a greater impact on human philosophy and religion. Christianity originated from a series of historical events more than 2,000 years ago. The Jewish area of Jerusalem inherited the Hebrew Bible and regarded it as the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.
We already know that there are about 125 billion galaxies in the entire universe, and each galaxy also contains hundreds of billions of stars. There are more and more planets in these star systems. Astronomers believe that if these planets are There are also intelligent creatures with advanced civilizations. In theistic religions, the emphasis is on the role of God in creating all things. Furthermore, there are other intelligent creatures in the universe. Why does God love the earth? Why did Jesus Christ choose not to go to other planets where there are intelligent alien creatures, but choose to descend on humans? Does the concept of "God" also exist in the world of aliens?
In this regard, philosophy professor Weidman believes that: alien intelligent creatures and human religions can still coexist. We can come up with some possible solutions like the Protestant Christians. Maybe alien intelligent creatures are not sinners, they don't have original sin like human beings, therefore, aliens may not need salvation.
However, these inferences are relatively "banal" thinking, unless there is sufficient evidence to prove that the concept of "God" and similar thinking does not exist in the alien world, so as to prove that they do not need salvation.
But what if the concept of "guilty" also exists in the alien world? If this is the case, does it also need Jesus to save them?
If this is the case, then our human status in the universe, or the status of all higher intelligent creatures in the universe, is very special, because we can save other intelligent creatures.
