...people of faith who think it impossible or even improbable that there is life elsewhere. I think the use of that idea is a weak argument against theism based on a misunderstanding.
In fact most people of faith readily believe in other created beings in dimensions and realms beyond their own -- they already believe in 'extraterrestrials' of a sort! So what would be the big deal if there were other creatures within the same dimensions? (It would be a big deal, but not as some threat to theism.)
