Comment 1 by James_Evans :

So, by now, whatever galaxy that star is part of could be teeming with intelligent civilizations, and all the galaxies along that unthinkably long line of intervening space could be as well, and we would never know it.

If I'm not horribly mistaken there's no good reason to believe that life elsewhere in the universe isn't also darwinian life and since religion is an unavoidable by-product of natural selection on the path to higher intelligence and organized societies I bet they all killed each other off a looong time ago.
