Vatican Signals Willingness to Consider Aliens

by on Nov.11, 2009, under aliens

The Roman Catholic Church has signaled its willingness to consider that there may be intelligent life elsewhere in the universe (click here for one story).  The Catholic Church is considering whether or not the grandeur of God’s creation may include other places in the vastness of space.

For Christians, and people of other faiths, the idea that other intelligent life could, and, in fact, does, exist in the universe can cause a crisis of faith.  Christian denominations often teach that humans are “made in God’s image” and are unique in the universe.  How, then, is another intelligent species to be considered with such fundamental teachings?  How are the religious teachings and practices of other intelligent life to be reconciled with human holy scriptures?

The Catholic Church, one of the oldest extant religious institutions in the world, seems to be preparing its flock for the possibility that aliens will be “discovered” in the relatively near future.  They seem to want to find a way to support multiple intelligent species that are “made in God’s image” before it becomes widely known that intelligent life from elsewhere in the universe has visited Earth, that aliens visit regularly.

This is a bold, welcome move on the part of the Catholic Church.  If only others would dare to prepare the general public for the hidden knowledge that we are not alone.
