If aliens exist, then what if they know God or at least about Him?

I would see two categories of ET's based off of that if aliens were to exist:

* Fallen: meaning that their parents disobeyed God initially as Adam and Eve did.
and
*Innocent: meaning that they would still be uncorrupted.

Please assume, for discussion, the premises here and not argue about the axioms.


Which god? I assume aliens with seven tentacles and three eye-stalks will have a god that has seven tentacles and three eye-stalks.

Assume that there is only one God in all of the infinite universe, and that this God is utterly nonspecific.
