what if, again?

this is an excellent article in which a couple seti (search for extraterrestrial intelligence) researchers comment on exactly the question I've written on previously.  their takeaway:  because humans haven't been at the center of existence for a while, most religious would simply take it in stride and continue.  I'd like to believe that.  unfortunately, that presupposes a willingness to adapt to circumstances that isn't always borne out by history.  would most religious accept extraplanetary bacteria as evidence of a diversity to the universe we can only guess at or as creations of the adversary meant to be destroyed?  my religious mind believes the former; my political mind suspects the latter.
