Book cover of "Science, Religion, and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence"

Would it represent another major conflict between science and religion, even leading to the death of faith? Some would suggest that the discovery of any suggestion of extraterrestrial life would have a greater impact than even the Copernican and Darwinian revolutions.
