Russian Muslims And Jews Admit Existence Of UFO-people

Moscow, May 15, Interfax =96 Islamic teaching admits
extraterrestrial intelligence, the Muftis' Council of Russia
representative stated.

"According to the Holy Koran, the Almighty speaks about creation
of various worlds. We know the world of people, jinns, plants
and animals. Perhaps, we don't know everything. The Creator can
create anything. Other creatures may inhabit the worlds out of
our reach," the chairman of the international department of the
Muftis' Council Rushan Abbyasov was quoted as saying by the
Moskovsky Komsomolets daily on Thursday.

He cited a Koran's sura saying "Praise Allah, the Lord of the
worlds!" and noted that thus the holy Muslim Book confirmed
"that other civilizations may exist."

"As to the question whether aliens bear original sin or not,
there is no notion of original sin in Islam. In fact, the Koran
says that if a baby dies, it goes right to the paradise because
it is pure and innocent," Abbyasov said.

Rabbi Zinovy Kogan said that "the Lord is the first cause for
everything existing in micro and macro worlds."

"It couldn't be excluded that other creatures similar to man
exist in other worlds," he stressed.

The Moscow Patriarchate Department for External Church Relations
secretary for inter-Christian affairs Fr. Igor Vyzhanov noted
that the question of UFO-people existence had nothing to do with
Christian dogmatics as it considered the question of saving
human soul.

"I think that both Orthodox and Catholic theologians, if asked,
will split up. Some will say: existing of extraterrestrial life
is possible, how can we deny God's creative power. The others
will say that the earthy life is unique. Though this question is
absolutely insignificant for the Church, it's not even a
scientific question, but just idle curiosity," the priest
concluded.
