If the Lord never intended for anyone else to suffer from someone else's sin, then why would Adam and Eve's initial transgression affect any of the rest of us? No man who sins is an island--his actions affect all those around him, and even all of society, in some way. Why would we expect the rest of the universe to function any differently? I'm not saying that the Lord created little green men somewhere, but He may have created other humans, in the likeness of His own image, elsewhere in the universe, who, just like we do, have their own sins that need to be resolved. As Christ's atonement was an infinite, universal atonement, it has the power to redeem all sin--even that of those who might possibly exist elsewhere in God's grand universe. Some would try to imagine a limit to Christ's atoning power, and say that it only has jurisdiction on earth, but I don't think it has a limit. He atoned for ALL sin, wherever it might be found in ALL of His creation. If there is no sin outside of our planet, then so be it, but if there are others like us in the universe, then surely they would need the redeeming love of their Savior as much as we do.
