Is there other intelligent life out there?

This current generation will have the opportunity to dream about the possibility of new life and living on other planets.  In my growing-up years, this was only in the movies because earth was the only planet we knew of that was livable.  As many people learned this past week, NASA has just announced the new discovery of seven planets known as Trappist-1.

As a teenager, I was told “Aliens do not exist,” and that if a person thought they saw an alien, it was a demonic manifestation.  I had no problems with this according to my Christian culture because scriptures had nothing to say about other life other than earth’s human beings.  But if we were to actually discover intelligent life in outer space, would it contradict the bible?  I don’t see any contradiction.
