Aliens Could be Free of Original Sin

May 14th, 2008

From the BBC today:

The Pope’s chief astronomer says that life on Mars cannot be ruled out.

Writing in the Vatican newspaper, the astronomer, Father Gabriel Funes, said intelligent beings created by God could exist in outer space.

Father Funes, director of the Vatican Observatory near Rome, is a respected scientist who collaborates with universities around the world.

The search for forms of extraterrestrial life, he says, does not contradict belief in God.

The official Vatican newspaper headlines his article ‘Aliens Are My Brother’.

‘Free from sin’

Just as there are multiple forms of life on earth, so there could exist intelligent beings in outer space created by God. And some aliens could even be free from original sin, he speculates.

  1. But is God an alien? Is he or she in outer space or on the earth? Who or what is God?
    And what did say the “druidpop’s”? IS it a chief astronomer by Druids? What does he or she mean about “Dianavesuz” (l'”Inconnaissable” en breton)?

  2. Wow! A real person from England. I guess we have the same taste in backgrounds.

    I got to hand it to you this was an amusing post. Nonetheless, I don’t think it has anything in common with the “related post link” (this is from my site).
