Vatican: “Intelligent Aliens” God’s Children

September 20, 2010

The Vatican continues to prepare the world for disclosure. Consolmagno’s speech prompted Richard Hoagland to speculate on the possible nearness of disclosure.

“Intelligent Aliens” God’s Children

Any intelligent aliens living elsewhere in the universe should be considered God’s children – no matter what they look like, the Pope’s astronomer has said.

Brother Guy Consolmagno, who speaks at the British Science Festival at Aston University, Birmingham, on Saturday, said: “Going back to the Middle Ages, the definition of a soul is to have intelligence, free will, freedom to love or not to love, freedom to make decisions…

“Any entity – no matter how many tentacles it has – has a soul.”

Should there ever be a Vatican mission to outer space, Brother Consolmagno might be just the person to lead it.

He admits to being a science fiction fan, which got him into astronomy, and says he would be willing to baptise an alien, but “only if they asked”.

Brother Consolmagno, whose appearance at the British Science Festival is unrelated to Pope Benedict XVI’s state visit, said: “I’d be delighted if we found life elsewhere and delighted if we found intelligent life elsewhere.

“God is bigger than just humanity. God is also the god of angels.”

But he did not think machines would ever become comparable to humans.

On physicist Professor Steven Hawking, who has claimed there is no need for a god to explain the origin of the universe, Brother Consolmagno said: “The whole idea of what creation means is not a case of who wound up the clock and sets it going, it’s the fact there’s a clock to be wound up in the first place.

“A god that started things up would be a pagan god. The god I believe in is outside space and time.”

    We are here. We are the Pleiadians…a collective of energies from the Pleiades. We have a long History. We come at a time of great transformation on your world. A great shift is about occur, which will lessen the density of your world, and where you bodies will not have such a solid state. This transformation will culminate with your and earth’s ascension into high realities. This will be based on individual choice. We are here as a catalyst to inform you of this change, and to assist and enourge your on your journeys. This is an exciting time…and many beings from all over the universe, are sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see what will occur, for this is unprecedented…

    Hawking’s statement leads one to believe in a “mechanistic” view of the world/universes. Behind every machine, is a creator who created it…and yes, he/she matters – greatly…for who knows what the future holds in the Great Plan. Surely, the “machines” of the working of universes are not the be-all and end-all….there must need be much, much more, like free will and morality/right and wrong, LOVE AND COMPASSION? Without a loving God, our humanity would have no free choice, no Spirituality…and we would have destroyed ourselves eons ago.

    Einstein saw the physical world and its laws like a great library. How could you not wonder about who wrote the books?
