I believe it is too obvious to be denied that there are beings outside of our earthly atmosphere.
I also believe that we all have the same Creator.
If that be the case, we must admit something. If there are good and bad people on earth, created by God, there will certainly be good and bad beings elsewhere, created by God.

Some people don't believe in any kinds of aliens at all. Some do, and then consequently call them angels, ETs, fairies, hyperdimensionals etc.
So before I trust Freedish on his (can't really associate a woman with Freedish's style) words, I would like to see some credentials and references.

If aliens exist, they may be a different life form that does not need Christ's redemption, the Vatican's chief astronomer said.
Jesuit Father Jose Funes, director of the Vatican Observatory, said Christians should consider alien life as an "extraterrestrial brother" and a part of God's creation.
Father Funes said it was difficult to exclude the possibility that other intelligent life exists in the universe, and he noted that one field of astronomy is now actively seeking "biomarkers" in spectrum analysis of other stars and planets.
These potential forms of life could include those that have no need of oxygen or hydrogen, he said. Just as God created multiple forms of life on earth, he said, there may be diverse forms throughout the universe.
"This is not in contrast with the faith, because we cannot place limits on the creative freedom of God," he said.

So I guess that makes this thread WRONG because if the CHURCH says Aliens are OK, then who are we to argue?
So does that make the OP the deceiver?
