If space aliens landed - how would it affect religion?

Looking for the old results?
If space aliens landed on Earth, or if they were discovered, I think it's fair to say that the implications for religion would be profound. For instance, even if the space aliens were friendly, Christians would have to ask "did Jesus die for their sins as well? Did Jesus die on their planet, and then rise again?" Muslims might ask "Has God sent these space aliens a Prophet like the Prophet Mohammed? (peace be upon him). Do they have their own Holy Book like the Qur'an?" Jews might ask whether the aliens had God-given laws which they had to follow. Buddhists might ask whether the space aliens were capable of attaining nirvana. The following questions assume that the space aliens are clearly intelligent but plainly non-human.
