Exotheology


Exotheology

Exotheology is the examination of theological issues as they pertain to extraterrestrial intelligence. It is concerned with either conjectures about possible theological belief structures that extraterrestrials might have, or how our own theologies will have to adapt if faced with evidence for the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence. One of the main themes of Exotheology is applying the concept of intelligent extraterrestrials to the examination of a given culture's mythology.
