A top astrophysicist explained that no other planet of the 500 or so analyzed has the stability in temperatures to allow life, as we know it on earth, to exist.

Other scientists, however, continue to search for the possibility of extraterrestrial life (Heidi Blake, "Alien Life Deemed Impossible by Analysis of 500 Planets,", Jan. 23, 2011).

What does the Bible say about aliens from other planets? God made the heavens and the earth, and that incredible process is described in the book of Genesis and referred to in other parts of the Bible. Nowhere does it say that God created another habitable planet at this time. However, God has promised "the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven … to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage" (Deuteronomy 4:19). You see, God made the earth and the human beings that inhabit it for a special purpose: to eventually inherit the whole universe as His eternal, divine family of spiritual children. That is our destiny! (See our free booklet What Is Your Destiny? to learn more.)
