Coco LaFemme: Makh: Oh please, NASA find life/fossils/oil.Oh I wonder what the Christians will say, if there's evidence of millions-year-old life on Mars....even if it's just microbial.
Bennie Crabtree: I rarely see derp in the threads of science blogs but wtf are Gizmodo readers on? God having a wife? Mistresses? I thought it was some kind of joke but they seem to really misunderstand the very long tradition of Catholic natural philosophers discussing life on other planets. One example: Galileo received funding from Catholic sources when he suggested the moons of Jupiter could be related to God having other people living on Jupiter (and therefore humans should communicate with them).The Vatican was the original funder for the search for alien life, and the reasons were theological, political, and scientific.
machoprogrammer: Why does every thread about this shiat turn into "I HATE RELIGION"
MmmmBacon: Depends on the particular sect, but I expect if we found microbial life on Mars, most Christian groups wouldn't worry too much about it. When intelligent alien life is contacted, that is when you will see riots as whole belief systems come crashing down.

Linux_Yes: Frankly, i think everyone should have the opportunity to have their very own personal UFO.
