I'm not sure why finding life on Mars would have any more theological implications than discovering America. It's a big hunk of creation that wasn't mentioned in the Bible, but there are a lot of those.

If I recall rightly, discovering the New World did set off a good deal of theological debate, with one typical discussion revolving around the question of whether the natives should partake in the Last Supper, since grapes (and thus wine) were not indigenous to the New World.

And, of course, other faiths that don't regard the Bible too highly have their own theological debates...
