Vatican Astronomer Believes in Aliens and God

The Rev. Jose Funes, director of the Vatican Observatory and a Jesuit priest, says it's OK to believe in both God and aliens. In an interview published yesterday in the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano under the headline "The extraterrestrial is my brother," Funes says there could be intelligent life outside Earth. "Just as there is a multiplicity of creatures on earth, there can be other beings, even intelligent, created by God," he said. "This is not in contrast with our faith because we can't put limits on God's creative freedom." —Heather Wax
