fear* = fear of everything that mankind did not yet understand, disease, death, weather, the sun traversing the sky, etc..

What if those civilizations are much, much more advanced than ours and became intelligent millions of years ago? Do you think their Jesus also lived millions of years ago? If so, they sure have been waiting a long time for their Rapture.
In Christian belief, God came to earth only once in the form of Jesus. However, in certain other religions, like Hinduism, God incarnated on earth numerous times to different peoples and cultures and will do so again.

If there is other intelligent life in the universe which thinks the way humans do, then I'm fairly sure many of them also believe that God has come to their planets as well.

There could very well be billions upon billions of Jesuses in the universe.

Wouldn't it be a hoot if some of our future space explorers visited a planet and found them about ready to crucufy their Jesus?

We could plead with them not to do it. Do you think they would listen?

See there are no other planets in scripture where there is life apart from the lone earth , as we are the only planet that has life in all the vastness of the space realm, and there is only one Jesus , and aliens of other planets are science fiction, and the aliens who people witness are fallen angel and demonic dark spirit that are stuck on the earth by the power of the Lord God and the Only living God ......
We are one small Planet in a medium sized Galaxy that contains over a trillion stars and probably millions of planets similar to earth. Hard to believe God(swt) would create all of this and only have one planet inhabited.

Now, we are just one Galaxy out of 170 BILLION known galaxies the smallest containing over 10 Million stars and the largest ones having over 100 trillion stars.

was all of that created without purpose?

If there were any advanced civilisations in our universe who have been in existence millions of years ago, I still think it is possible for Jesus to be their savior when he comes back, if Jesus was a would-be Buddha.

It is believed that the dispensation of current Buddha influences many universes and substantial number of extra-terrestial beings have been reported being salvaged during the lifetime of Gautama Buddha as per the scriptures. Jesus may have lived as a person with another name much longer than those civilisations and it is believed that he had fulfiled his last perfection as Jesus before he would become a Buddha himself in his next coming to Earth.

The only difference between Christianity and Buddhism regarding the next coming of Jesus or a bodhisatta is the time. Buddhists believe the next coming would not happen before 5000 years after the death of the current Buddha.

Those who developed faith and listen to a discourse of the next Buddha would be salvaged instantly, which does not mean that everybody would be salvaged; thus, indicating a logical reason for the existence of such advanced civilisations who might have failed to develop faith in the current Buddha.

If I have to make a guess, I'm guessing "no." But only because not everyone here on Earth thinks there has to have been a Jesus. (Of course, we'll be told that we can't be "saved," but that goes along with the territory).
