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.
Editor’s Note: Please take note of the increase in UFO sitings that have taken place this year. Texas, Arizona, Mexico and California have all reported seeing enormous crafts over their skies, some of them simultaneously so its ironic that the Church will go on record acknowledging the “possible” existence of outside intelligence. Expect contact sometime before November.
