… from the Vatican’s astronomer.
This information has landed in the Basket: The Vatican says it is okay to believe in UFOs. Okay in the spiritual sense. In other words, it is perfectly compatible with “The Faith” to also believe in ET:
“How can we exclude that life has developed elsewhere,” he said in an interview with the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, published in its Tuesday-Wednesday edition. The large number of galaxies with their own planets makes this possible, he noted.
Well, isn’t that special! I am not sure a Calvinist, with a firm belief in the headship of both Adam and Christ, can go along with Rome. Jesus Christ, the Second Adam, had to come as a man in order to save mankind (Its all in Romans and Hebrews folks). So, if there were other “brothers” out there, would he also have to come as the Great Gazoo?
A few more questions… Who knew the Vatican had its own Astronomer? Seriously, what other officeholders are there in Rome? Is there a Chief Botanist? Who would issue rulings on the potential for man eating plants from space, the astronomer or the botanist? FEED ME SEYMOUR!
UPDATE FOR SUSAN: to show her that we at the basket still love her
We love you too Bucky, but I have no idea what you are talking about with those fanny aliens. Enlighten?
