Earth-Based Religions and Other Planets?

From my understanding many paths are earth based and worship deities of earth origin(or attachment). How does a follower of these beliefs account for other planets and the possibility of life 'out there'? If there is no life on said planet, are their no gods for that planet? Are they the same gods, possibly with different names?

Personally, I feel that there must be at least one other planet out there that has life like our own. In order for me to fully accept an earth based religious philosophy, I must first be able to relate the belief to another planet. Tie the two, if that makes sense.

There are very few hard 'facts' in my own mind relating to faith. Just as reincarnation eliminates many religions from my pool of choices, so does the belief that we are not alone.
