I told her that it would turn the world on its side knowing that life extends beyond our planet, not to mention the world's idea of "God" would have to be re-examined.
Castel Gandolfo, 14 May (AKI) - The Vatican’s chief astronomer has said that there is no conflict between believing in God and the possibility that life exists on other planets.
“Why should we not talk about an extraterrestrial brother, just as we consider earthly creatures as a brother, and sister? It would still be part of creation,” said Father Jose Gabriel Funes in an interview with the Vatican’s official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.
Funes interview was part of a report in the paper entitled “The extraterrestrial is my brother.”
He outlined how the search for forms of extraterrestrial life are not a contradiction to a belief in God.
