Why I’m still and humbly so, a practising Roman Catholic.
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.
And people say my faith is out of touch. When we say “We are God’s Universal Church”, we mean it.
And on the subject of the heavens, my favorite “outer space” magazine Astronomy and Microsoft have teamed up, to bring us geeks and non-geeks, one of the neatest things to come onto the World Wide Web. It’s called the “World Wide Telescope“.
Looking through the program, you indeed can see God at work. Give it a try folks. You won’t be disappointed.
It also looks like the Brit’s want to get on the action as well. British ‘X Files’ papers revealed. Now my conspiracy minded head I have is starting to turn. Are they both trying to tell us something? Should we start preparing for something outer worldly? Hmmmm.
