Theists, If Aliens Visited Earth and Had No Knowledge of your Religious Claims, How Would You Feel?

Would this cause you to doubt your faith at all?

If you believe that /all/ life is created by your god, then these aliens not sharing your god belief, or having any knowledge of past religions in their history, would point to them not having had the same origin story as you believe humans have had, right? (Of course I recognise that it's possible they could have been created by a hypothetical god and just lost that knowledge over time)

And alternatively if you believe your god /only/ created life on Earth and nowhere else, you would either be forced to believe your god had also created these aliens, or you'd have to believe abiogenesis was possible, absent your gods intervention. Correct?

What if they arrived and it turns out they do believe in a god (s) or creation myth, but it's completely different than any Earth religion? Would this cause you to realise that any group of people, even those on other planets might just be prone to creating mythologies, and that there's no reason to assume any of them are correct?

Or no? I'm curious how some theists would address this hypothetical.
