Well done!! This op has been a Superb read throughout.
read the article in the link:
OK; Along the line of thought that you are presenting, I can see this:
It was written on May 13, 2008. The following coincidences occured to me between certain things (2013):
Fr. José Gabriel Funes, said;
a. "Astronomy...In this regard, and here I speak as a priest and a Jesuit"- It's JESUIT priest being interviewed.
(Pope Francis IS a JESUIT)
b. During his "...so there could be other beings..." quote he references ST. FRANCIS.
(The next (present)Pope would take FRANCIS.)
c. now consider his statement: "To say it with St. Francis, if we can consider some earthly creatures as 'brothers' or 'sisters', why could we
not speak of a 'brother alien'? He would also belong to the creation."
(To say it with St. (POPE) Francis,
("brothers" or "sisters" to aliens- Pope Francis stepped out onto the balcony and the first thing he spoke was "Brothers and Sisters" to the
crowd; not the usual Popely address to the awaiting faithful; it was reported).
Fr. José Gabriel Funes references Gospel to demonstrate we have indeed fallen low and are in need of Christ. Then, when asked for his thought on the
condition of Extra Terrestrial Flesh, HIS suggestion (about them) is "...God became man in Jesus to save us. In that way, assuming that there would
be other intelligent beings, we could not say that they need redemption . They could have remained in full friendship with the Creator."
Amazed at how much-alike coincidences have occurred between the article being written and the way events have unfolded over time,:- the Francis,
Jesuit, words in the article for ET are used in his first speech etc., to allow for any inferences between something from '08 and something from
'13. Astonished by the op in general.
mmm...just sayin': in light of the lines suggested by the tone of the op. Seen while reading the article.
Nice read, thanks!
