Should silvered ships ever break through the clouds and announce the arrival of our benevolent space brothers, then it appears the Vatican's chief astronomer will be there to greet them with open arms.
Jesuit Father Jose Funes, director of the Vatican's astronomical observatory, said in an interview published Tuesday that believing in alien life doesn't contradict faith in God.
"Just as we consider earthly life as 'a brother' and 'sister,' why should we not talk about an 'extraterrestrial brother?' It would still be part of creation," he said.
Even if it has a world-annihilating death ray.

Here is why it would end Christianity,
at first it was 'in the beggining, God created the heaven and Earth',
Then when we discovered that there was other planets and a universe, it then became 'in the beggining, God created the heaven and Earth and the universe, if ailens are "discovered" the line will change to 'in the beginning, God created the heaven and Earth and the universe and all the beings in it'.
Do you get what I am saying?
