The Vatican: “Aliens are our brothers”
The Catholic Church is getting ready to offer the communion to extraterrestrials. Times are changing and the Church appears to know something’s coming that will shake our deepest beliefs in the fields of faith and science.
In May of 2008, Jose Gabriel Funes, Director of the Vatican Observatory, gave an interview to the Vatican newspaper –L’Osservatore Romano– titled “The Alien is my Brother”.
In said interview, Funes stated that there was no conflict between believing in God and the possibility of there being extraterrestrial “brothers” that were more evolved than humans.
We’ll show you some fragments next.
Please note that it is to be understood that Jose Gabriel Funes could not have made the following statements without the approval of the Pope or of the highest ecclesiastic authorities of the Vatican. If you are a Catholic, please, have a glass of water, seat back and take a deep breath before reading.
“As there are various creatures on Earth, there could be other beings, even intelligent beings, created by God. This doesn’t contradict our faith because we can’t put limits to the creative freedom of God.”
“Why can’t we refer to an alien brother? He would be a part of Creation.”
“How could we exclude that life has developed some place else. Maybe we humans are the black sheep of the universe.”
This is amazing! Not only the Church “admits” the existence of extraterrestrial “brothers” but it also admits that they could be more evolved than us, calling us the black sheep of the family.
The Church wouldn’t have made these statements if there wasn’t a certitude that an official extraterrestrial contact that will be made public was close or if there wasn’t evidence of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations. No statement is random when it comes to this subject, specially for the Church.
Last year, one of the scientists of the Vatican Observatory, Guy Consolmagno, declared:
“I would be delighted if we found intelligent aliens, and I would be glad to baptize them, if they asked me. Any being, no matter how many tentacles it could have, has a soul.”
Consolmagno is trying to be sarcastic but, as we have already seen, he gives us evidence of where this issue comes from and where it is going. This man is, also, the keeper of the meteorite collection of Pope Benedict XVI.
The Vatican is getting ready for the aliens’ arrival and, therefore, in 2009 they opened up the new facilities of the Vatican Observatory, one mile and a half away from Castel Gandolfo, where it was previously located.
Why is it that precisely in this moment the Vatican decides to move their observatory to a larger place, with more scientists and better pieces of equipment?
Weird, isn’t it?
The Church has been carefully stepping onto the scientific field for some decades now. In the nineties, John Paul II, in an act of “mea culpa”, acknowledged that the Church had made a mistake by condemning Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) for stating the Earth was not the center of the universe. From that to offering to baptize aliens and calling them “brothers” there’s an attitude that The Divulgers could only interpret as one thing only: Desperation.
