Vatican: Aliens are our brothers

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is pretty far 'out there' even for the Vatican. The Vatican's chief astronomer says believing in aliens does not contradict faith in God.

In a recent interview, the Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes said:

"How can we rule out that life may have developed elsewhere?" Just as we consider earthly creatures as 'a brother,' and 'sister,' why should we not talk about an 'extraterrestrial brother'? It would still be part of creation."

Rev. Funes also says the Big Bang theory is the most "reasonable" explanation for the creation of the universe. I wonder if his opinion is shared by the rest of the organisation.

The same guy, in concert with the pope also announced recently that evolution was the most likely theory to explain current life on earth, but in this announcement mentioned that the aliens would be free from 'oringinal sin' - the sin commited when adam & eve ate the apple in the garden of eden.

So which is it? Evolution & big bang or garden of eden by way of magical wand?

Of course, the Vatican thinks it's okay to believe aliens exist, and why would they have a problem with that, seeing how they already believe in the alien, monstrous god (note the small "g") of Christendom.

I repeat:

The last time the Vatican's astronomer spoke, they insisted the world was FLAT, and Galileo's "heretical" rear was thrown out till he learned the *error* of his way. Poor Galileo.

Myself I'm glad to see the Vatican trying to make sense of the world around them through Faith and Reason. It's a dichotomy that's very hard to balance, and by golly at least they're trying. I remember asking both my Sunday school teacher and high school teacher why evolution couldn't exist, guided by the hand of God. Both laughed at me equally, but imagine my surprise years later when the Vatican announced that was pretty much their stance on it.

Faith cannot be proved or disproved as it is an emotional response. You can call the power of the universe Jesus, Buddah, Yhwh, Shiva, or any other name you want, but there are things that cannot be seen. This is why Faith is important, we'd go crazy with all the unknowns of the Universe. Reason is there to help us understand Faith, and change it as needed.

Sorry if I put a nickel's worth of my 2ยข here. BTW, I personally believe there has to be intelligent life out there somewhere. You'd have to be naive to believe we're the only sentient beings, at least statistically.

This is a small step towards every religion in the world coming to their senses one day

I have always know that we are not alone and we share the universe with many other of G-d's creations. It is such a shame that we can't get on with one another here on Earth, so that we can relate with our extraterrestrial brothers, sisters and others of unknown origins.

I have documented case history of my interaction with UFOs' and their occupants. I fear mankind most of all; we are too violent and arrogant of a race to be able to voyage amongst the stars without trying to conquer every habitable planet we find, if we were able to travel beyond quantum levels.

Gene Roddenberry must have foreseen such a time, when we would make open contact globally. His idea of a Prime Directive and non-interference is already understood by some of our visitors to our small, blue island in space. I feel that mankind needs to apply those principles both here on Earth, and if we are allowed to ever travel physically beyond our observational system of planets.

It is nice to know that they are now recognized as our fellow brothers of the universe. However, we have to put down our warring ways, and learn the ways of peace to live alongside of them.

No doubt, there are brothers and sisters in the universe at the same evolutionary/spiritual level we are here on Earth. However, I expect that they will get farther than us and not regress into barbarism.

I look to the day, when life amongst the stars will be as simple, as travelling from one country to another.

I love meeting new and different people here on Earth, and meeting different races in space would be tremendous.

love, light and peace

p.s. although, I have had brief encounters with our star brothers and sisters; I would love to spend more time amongst the stars.
