More photos of Comet McNaught-from inland Western Australia

Further to my post of my photo of Comet McNaught from a beach near Perth, Western Australia, here are three more (and much better) photos of the comet taken by an acquaintance, from the inland wheatbelt town of Dowerin, about 160 kms (100 miles) north-east of Perth, between 8:55 and 9:15pm, 17 January 2007:

Psalm 8:1,3-4. 1O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. ... 3When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?"

Do other planets likely have their own religions, or is it possible they have heard about Jesus?
If they have not, should we tell them?
What if they insist that their religion is superior to ours?
Since the conditions on their planet are likely different from ours, how can we gently break the news that we are in God's image but they are not.

My position is that there only ever has been intelligent life on Earth, in the entire Universe.

See " What I believe about Creation, Evolution and Design" under "Life, extraterrestrial" [http://tinyurl.com/2egqc2] (as updated today).

Therefore, your question is based on a false premise, i.e. there is *no* "religions" on "other planets".

>If they have not, should we tell them?

See above.

>What if they insist that their religion is superior to ours?

See above.

See above.
