Do Aliens exist or not from your religious point of view?

From the Christian Orthodox point of view the short answer is No. So if they "come" we will not believe them to be aliens.

I will not argue points on this but I am curious if your flavor of belief includes the possibility of Aliens or not. If yes, how it changes your Christian views.

I can't answer this question from a religious point of view. I can't offer much more than a guess from a scientific point of view.

Care to say why the Christian Orthodox point of view is no

This assumes he speaks for the Christian Orthodox community as a whole.

A guess from a scientific point of view is useless since it can be argued both ways equally if they exist or not.

No I am interested if your religious view takes into account aliens or not.

I suppose it CAN. The sudden appearance of intelligent extraterrestrial life wouldn't shake my faith in Christ. But there hasn't been a need to try yet.

Don't believe in any gods.

Don't know if there are any supernatural aspects to the world.

Don't know if aliens exist.

From an Orthodox Christian point of view Adam is the Steward (made such by the Lord, the Creator) of this Material Universe and besides him and his children (which includes us) the other created material live beings are just animals/insect/fish, etc beings inferior to Adam. So Aliens do not fall in this categories and hence we consider them just another illusions of the devils, if they indeed want to go this route, as they impersonated sometimes Gods in the Ancient world.

A second point will be to talk about the possibility for inferior life (microbes cells,plants, etc) to exist on other planets or not. Orthodox Christians do not believe even that is possible since God created all these for Adam to govern or use. So only on Earth were all these created.

But does your view includes the possibility? That is the question for you in this case.

Does the Bible state somewhere that mankind is the only intlligent life in the universe?

There better be. If it's only us out here floating around in this great big abyss, well, that's just not very creative of a God, now is it?

The Orthodox priests that I know believe that these UFO sightings are NOT aliens, but demons.

If life, intelligent or otherwise, existed elsewhere in the universe the Holy Scriptures would have mentioned it.

Yup. Fortunately, Trump is building a wall to keep them out. My religious point of view? When they come here illegally then they're basically stealing which is against God's law.

My understanding of the Bible and Christianity is child-like and there's so much I don't know. But I think the Bible is perhaps silent on the topic of alien life forms from other worlds. There are demons and angels doing battle, we do know this.

There are certainly non-Biblical references to flying craft and other worldly beings in that era of history.

Regardless, the Bible is silent on many things today we know to be true, like DNA or the temperature of the sun, or dinosaurs, or ...

The Bible tells us of important contemporaneous events and prophecies of future events, like the birth of Jesus Christ and Revelations, and it is a guidebook on how we should live our lives using people and examples throughout that era.

On a personal note, whether advanced beings, time travelers, angels, or demons, I've had a personal sighting of an unmistakeable Unidentifiable Flying Object over my home town in the mid 1980s, witnessed by me and 3 peers in our early teens. I've written about. Even today, in 2020, there's no logical explanation nor known aircraft technology that had those characteristics of being enormous, silent, hovering, and translucent. And, remember, that was the 1980s... Something is out there...

I attempted to engage UFOs encroaching upon restricted airspace. All fire control systems were rendered inoperable and the A/C didn't respond to manual controls. I managed a flame-out and restart, to disengage and return to base, and then chose not to report it because it would have been a career ender. Washed out my flight suit in a bucket. 1974 left the service.
