Vatican: Existence Of Alien Life Is A Possibility
Recently, Jose Gabriel Funes, the chief astronomer to Pope Benedict XVI, gave an interview with the Osservatore Romano. That is the media mouthpiece of the Vatican. According to Fumes, there is the possibility that alien life does exist. But, he did not confirm it. Instead, Fumes said that there is no evidence to deny that aliens do not exist.
Fumes also said that there could be aliens absent of “Original Sin.” While he still believes that God created the universe, he said that alien life does not contradict the belief in God. To Fumes, he said if they do exist, they may not need to be saved and redeemed. That would mean if that is the case, then Original Sin would only apply to the human race.
This teaching originated in Christianity with Adam and Eve who had eaten the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden. They were not supposed to have eaten the fruit. But, they did anyway. Then, the two of them were cast out from the Garden of Eden. Cain and Abel are their two sons.
It is official; the Vatican has said that there is the possibility of alien life. Perhaps there might be a Vatican version of the Men In Black.
