Not all of them.
I'm pretty sure that Buddhism'd adapt pretty simply, assuming it needed to.

Non-sequitur? I'm not sure how God making man in his own image has anything to do with aliens existing or not existing.

I guess I owe you a proper post.

Okay it works like this for me: There are a lot of things we can't take literally from the bible. Like for example, humans being created "in the image and likeness of God" probably does not mean that we physically look like God, just that a person has a fragment of what he is. We are able to expand our knowledge and keep on going forward, etc. stuff like that. Then coupled with the fact that there was nothing that specifically rules out aliens, I think religion and aliens are not mutually exclusive. (and science, but that would deserve a whole new topic of its own)

Two points about the OP.
First, as Sera says, you could interpret 'in his own image' to refer to some other quality than mere physical appearance-- the ability to reason, for example.

Secondly, even if we take it to be true, that 'God made man in his own image,' refers to physical appearance, that statement is not mutually exclusive with the statement 'God made Clorx'ggrxegafka in his own image.' Even if man and some other alien species look totally different, those statements are compatible, because it is impossible to say "God has X and Y and Z physical traits and only X and Y and Z ."

Finally, how do you prove a religion to be true or false? Barring some bizarre supernatural phenomenon completely upending the laws of physics as we know them, or dying and appearing in some afterlife, it seems difficult at the very least to say "X religion is True" or "Y religion is False" with any sort of concrete proof behind the statement. Under normal circumstances, religion appears to fall outside the realm of proofs.

I think it would prove original religion was true/is true. as we would finally identify the entities responsible for genetically creating the slave race originally referred to as adama, and early adama were dumb enough to believe our creators to also have created the universe, especially since they have the technology to geo form planets, and create stars to use as power sources.
