I am not so game to go with the assurance of Robert re extra terrestial life. The NASA crusade to find liquid water in space, so as to infer that ET life was first, possible, then probable, then certain, is part of the MS modernist agenda to coronate evolution as our scientific idol ? the modern Baal. US public schools must only teach the approved religion of biology ? Darwinism. So desperate are the modernists that they will probably find some microbes in space that were accidentally spread on the Moon and via space probes, and claim they have proof of ET life. That was my point, Sir Philip. I recall clearly the nuns telling all the kids, that man would find no life in space. except the devil. Of course I laughed, and when Sputnik arrived, I cheered.. Nuns of course said it was the Devils work, and it being communist, I suppose they were close. Yet I clearly remember a statement from the vatican of the time , which might have been modernist inspired of course, that if any life were to appear, it would be outside of revelation, and not of this world.. But this did not preclude Gods right to have created other life. There followed a short explanation of what such forms this creation would take, even unto intelligent life, whether it be angels or devils or sentient beings such as ourselves.. Were such beings in existence, they had no place in the mission of Christs church, having no relation to the fallen progeny of Adam. In essence they covered their behinds.. Which I thought clever. so will I. Off on one of your verbal riffs again?? Well, since you brought it up ? If ET life is discovered, the answer I was taught was that God never told us about ?them? , so they?re not part of the divine salvific plan. No conflict with the deposit of faith. When asked if I believe in alien life visiting Earth, the answer depends on the def of ?alien?. There was Christ and the angels of Scripture, for sure. And Enoch and Elias, who will return to die fighting the Antichrist. But they were born here. For any other ?humans? to visit us, they would have to be physically descended from Adam and saved by Christ. I?m sure that the Auschurch has a different spin from the Amchurch on this. Robert B PS. Sometimes I wonder if Allen is an ET. He types in strange coded languages and always talks about his Martian friend. Just change the l to an I Allen ==> Alien :-) Philip.
