Chief Vatican astronomer believes aliens
« on: August 11, 2015, 04:22:16 AM »
The Pope’s chief astronomer Father Jose Funes has confirmed that the Vatican Observatory in Rome believes in life on other planets.

The Vatican Observatory has said that the discovery of planets, on which it is believed life could exist, in the past number of years has led them to believe that we are not alone.

Fr. Funes said, “Our galaxy contains more than a hundred billion stars.

“Considering the number of exoplanets discovered, it seems that the vast majority of stars in our galaxy, at least potentially, can have planets where life could develop.”

“It is probable there was life and perhaps a form of intelligent life … I don't think we’ll ever meet a Mr. Spock,” he continues.

Nor does he believe that there will be any encounter between these other forms of life and a higher power, describing the life on Earth of Jesus Christ as a “unique event” in history and one that has not and will not be repeated. Unfortunately for these other extraterrestrials, Fr. Funes believes that God has a special place in his heart for mankind and Jesus would not have been sent to save them (or they may not sin as we do).

“The discovery of intelligent life does not mean there’s another Jesus,” he continued. “The incarnation of the Son of God is a unique event in the history of humanity of the universe”.

In a huge turnaround for the Catholic Church, Fr. Funes says that believing in aliens does not go against the Bible or Christian doctrine, as it still acknowledges the work of God in creating this other life.

Last year, Pope Francis also revealed that he believes in the Big Bang and in evolution, although he feels that they are both still the work of a divine creator.
