Hello Brother ,

This is a very interesting article with a question that I have pondered. According to the Bible I see that God created the heaven and the earth and of course all of the stars, sun and moon too. You have talked about she shape of the earth and the fact that God hung it on nothing (Isaiah & Job passages that you cite). But how about we just look at Genesis. Clearly God called the dry land Earth (Gen 1:10) and then He created the creatures in the sea, air and on the earth (Gen 1:20-25) … and of course He created man and told him to be fruitful and multiply to replenish the earth … then made him to and “have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” and so on (Gen 1:26 ff).

The Bible keeps saying “earth”. Like you, I cannot find anywhere in the Bible that says there is life on other planets. I just gotta believe that God created the earth for his living creatures. We have no record that He put life on Mars or Jupiter or any other planet.

For this reason I would have to answer the question “Is It Possible That God Created Life On Other Planets?” as Yes, it is possible because with God all things are possible, however, according to the Creation record it is NOT probable.

Thank you for your article, which I found interesting and helpful. You quote Deut 23:10-11 as an example of isolating from others to prevent passing on sickness. In the NIV, these verses say “If one of your men is unclean because of a nocturnal emission, he is to go outside the camp and stay there. But as evening approaches he is to wash himself, and at sunset he may return to the camp”. I see no connection to sickness here, just a need for washing. Am I missing something in my understanding of the text?

Hello Lesley. Washing is a way of preventing sickness so the idea of there being a universal law shows that God does exist.
