Would really believe anything that aliens had to say simply
because they had better technology than we do? Vatican
representatives have spoken of the possibility of
extraterrestrial intelligent life and welcome it as more glory
to God for his creation. The Church also sees such as senario as
a possible evanglical exercise - spreading the word of Jesus
amongst the heathen, you see. Also, the Vatican sees it as an
interesting theological question, in that humans are considered
a 'fallen' race. Could there be other worlds out there where Eve
never ate the apple? Are they living in paradise? Would God
allow contact with them? Don't worry, the Church will have all
bases covered if contact is ever made.

The Muslims are also receptive to life on other planets. After all, the
Koran talks of seven other worlds that God created besides earth.

I wouldn't worry so much about oil companies and Space Brothers
bringing free energy sources for us. I'd worry about aliens
being bigger predators than we are.
