Would Finding Aliens Shatter Religious Beliefs?
Mike Wall

SANTA CLARA, Calif. =97 The discovery of life beyond Earth would
shake up our view of humanity's place in the universe, but it
probably wouldn't seriously threaten organized religion, experts
say.

Religious faith remains strong in much of the world despite
scientific advances showing that Earth is not the center of the
universe, and that our planet's organisms were not created in
their present form but rather evolved over billions of years. So
it's likely that religion would also weather any storms caused
by the detection of E.T., researchers say.

"I think there are reasons that we might initially think there
are going to be some problems," said Doug Vakoch, director of
Interstellar Message Composition at the SETI (Search for
Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute in Mountain View,
Calif. "My own hunch is they're probably not going to be as
severe as we might initially think."
