    It would not change my belief in God. There are many things that God choose not to explain. Prehistoric man for one. But it says in Genesis 1:28, Be fruitful and multiply and REPLENISH the earth. That alone tells me there was something before man as we know him. So if ETs are found that just shows a more complex universe then we thought. It will never change GOD our creator. He is also the creator of the entire universe.
