Does the bible say anything about man on the moon, or about sending space rovers to Mars?

No. I'm sorry. But that doesn't mean there might not be. I mean I've always speculated that maybe (a small maybe) he has life somewhere else in the universe with a completely different set of rules and such for them because they might have had a different history and we don't know about it because it's too far away. But more than likely, not. Because the bible mentions the moon and the sun plenty of times and would have mentioned life on other planets as well if they did in fact exist. That's what I think anyway. People like to get this "Are we alone?" type set of mind which really makes no sense to me. We are all together in this big planet...how could we be alone?

It's quite possible that God has created beings on other planets who obeyed Him; life would be paradise for them. If Adam & Eve would have obeyed, this planet would still be paradise too. No death, no hurt, no pain, no tears -- just life everywhere.

Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death ...

IMO, I don't think there is life on other planets.I think it's 'all about us'.That's just how special we are,how special God made us.
I do think that question was answered for us with the verses 'the heavens declare the glory of God,and the firmament showeth His handiwork'.IOW-I made all of this just to show you how Mighty I am and how much I love you.

I laugh whenever I see someone claim to be abducted by aliens... it just isn't true.Ex: Travis Walton and his cohorts had every reason to want to be released from that forestry contract they were nowhere near finishing. (and don't get me started with lie detector tests,I'm very familiar with true crime,and yes,I do think they all LIED.End of subject,I do not debate,thx ).

While I very much believe in God, and an afterlife, I do think that there is life out there. And why not? After all the universe is a very big place. With the numerous other galaxies out there, it's hard to imagine that we are the only planet in the whole universe capable of supporting life. I guess I'm just more open minded when it comes to these things.


Just my 2 cents.

Fair enough. Like I said, I'm pretty open minded about things. Well most of them anyway. I guess we won't have all the answers until we move on to the next life. There are so many things unanswered that I would love to know. Guess we'll just have to make the most of our lives here, which is what I'm trying to do, and we'll find out when we get to the other side.

Among the hundreds of billions of galaxies each filled with billions of stars, I believe there is life, intelligent life out there:

I thought we were talking about life existing in other planets. By that, I thought the OP was life like us humans.

Satan is a spirit being.

Kindreds are not spirit beings who have a common father like we have for Adam.
