Hopefully not posted before if it has then i'll delete, just didn't see it in the search. All the church goers can relax a little.


Vatican: God and Aliens Can Coexist offbeat news

The Vatican’s chief astronomer, Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, confessed in an interview that he saw no conflict between the religious doctrine he serves, and the scientific knowledge he peruses–including the possibility of “extraterrestrial brothers.” He also stated that it remains entirely possible that humanity represents the “lost sheep” of the universe, and that there is an entire community of highly-evolved extraterrestrials that remained in “full friendship with their creator.”

Rev. Funes is one of several scientists employed by the catholic church and although he is the only one to have recently spoken out in such a public fashion, Vatican scientists are largely in agreement with the scientific community; while still not excluding their religious principles of course. Father Funes for example, is a firm believer that the universe was created by the big bang, and that the formation of the universe has been governed by the laws established at that outset.

This may be problematic to a creation story for some, but he also sees that “we are not the children of an accident” and finds a sense of balance in the dialog between the church and science. This, he believes would benefit both science and the church as they stopped simply ignoring one another and began to look to each other for guidance and understanding.

And maybe someday, God, religion, peace, and universal respect for the rights of all humans can co-exist too...

God knows we are still very far away from that point. The RC church doesn't have a big problem with that which makes them exactly like all other "our's is the one true faith" religions... ignorant and destructive.

Someday, it will not be anytime soon, or maybe anytime at all.

Well, so long as people presume that they are powerless, choose to be silent, and don't "mix it up" in the pursuit of common sense - then yes - things will stay this way.

The Church will do what it feels is prudent. If it sees the public, especially its practicioners, leaning towards a belief in extraterrestrial existence along with the desire to know more then they will seek to appear to be aligning themselves with such in order to maintain that aspect of power that they have.
