Psychologist Albert Harrison believes that people have grown accustomed to the idea of aliens and, if alien life were to appear before their eyes, they would not be surprised.
"Advances in our technology have brought civilization to a point where the idea of other beings traveling through space to Earth no longer seems far-fetched or frightening," he writes in the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.
Britain's Daily Mail reported that Ted Peters, theologian of the Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California, supports the idea that Harrison suggested following a survey of 1,300 people of different faiths worldwide.
"It became clear that the vast majority of religious believers, regardless of religion, see no threat to their personal beliefs caused by potential contact with intelligent neighbors on other worlds."
Simon Conway Morris, professor at Cambridge University, believes the chances of alien life are low. He has said that alien life with advanced technology would have reached the Earth by now if evolution were the same throughout the universe.
"They are not there, and we are alone," he added.
