Theology Sees ET Life As Compatible with God

Theology considers the exstence of extraterrestrial life and
Biblical doctrine as being compatible, said theologian Vicente
Chafer yesterday. 

According to his theory, "it would be a delusion of grandeur to
think that we are alone in the universe," adding that the Bible
"already speaks of other inhabited worlds, but does not explain
them as it is centered on terrestrial life."

Chafer has adapted Catholic doctrine to scientific and space
discoveries having to do with the universe and acknowledges the
existence of over " 200,000 galaxies, each containing over
100,000 suns. We are but a mote of dust in this inmensity," he

MATHEMATICS: By sheer probabilty calculations it would be safer
to think that there is life on other planets than to state the
contrary, but until now, the closest thing to evidence which
 allows for this hypothesis is the UFO phenomenon. Chafer
points out that an advanced civilization equipped with
spacecraft enabling it to cross intergalactic distances (the
nearest star to our own is four years awaya traveling at the
speed of light -- 300,000 kilometers per second) "wouldn't
trouble itself to fly by, create uncertainty and vanish without
further ado." Furthermore -- according to his beliefs -- the
devil and sin are confined to the Earth, while the resto of the
worlds would be free of both, as the Bible states. Therefore,
such beings would not be interested in contacting us, if only to
avoid "contagion".

These reasons lead Chafer to believe that most UFO sightings and
manifestations are false, and only 20 per cent of them deserve
further study. But he cuttingly declares that said beings would
not be from another planet, and that their existence would be
better justified believing in the figure of the devil, who has
created them "to give us the hope that UFOs will take us to
other, uncontaminated worlds rather than believing in the gospel
of Christ."

The theologion is convinced that pure souls now dwelling in
Catholic heaven shall return to Earth when the presence of both
sin and the devil have been removed, since the former "no longer
has access to other worlds."
