Vatican: It's OK to believe in aliens
VATICAN CITY (AP) - The Vatican's chief astronomer says that believing in aliens does not contradict faith in God.
The Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, the Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory, says that the vastness of the universe means it is possible there could be other forms of life outside Earth, even intelligent ones.
In an interview published Tuesday by Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Funes says that such a notion "doesn't contradict our faith" because aliens would still be God's creatures.
The interview was headlined "The extraterrestrial is my brother." Funes said that ruling out the existence of aliens would be like "putting limits" on God's creative freedom.
The Vatican, allows us, to believe in brothers in other worlds!
That is precisely what I always said. God is in the universe. Life cannot be enclosed in a cage. Furthermore, if God is in the universe or he is the universe, or he is, from what is made the universe, then it would be blasphemy, denying the existence of other beings.
I do not know what’s happening with global policy now and for thousands of year, but always there was and there are contacts with other beings, but fiercely denying the existence of these.
Noting the overall behavior of influential politicians, and unusual fact, that border on insanity, I confirm a Stand by keeping at any cost.
That is, regardless, we must maintain the status quo to continue with a plan.
A plan made thousands of years ago. The prophecies are not prophecies. Plans are to perform and if it is written, it is natural, it happens.
It’s that simple argument. But that, at another time
The Vatican takes a stand on a radical change of direction.
Mr. Bruno, my friend from a previous life, was burned because he said the planet earth revolves around the sun. Best known was Galileo who has said and they move, though I burned. (sie bewegt sich doch).
The Vatican knows that confirmation of the existence of beings from other worlds is imminent and will happen at any time.
You have to adapt to new times, not to miss the train. So is it and so they are acting. And that’s fine. Mistakes must be rectified. Denying the possibility of other beings was a failure, because it really does not affect how they thought the Faith in God. To the contrary, it can attract more loyal if you include science and modern knowledge to religion.
Darwin was restored in the Vatican. Now, scientists from before are analyzed. There is still to correct the origin of Jesus, and to clarify the Holy Trinity. The first step was made. We also hope the next step will soon be made.
