During an interview 26

During an interview 26 he has expressly stated: Not to believe in UFOs and the presence of other living beings is a sin [sic!]. Their existence is not only proven by about a million witnesses, including those of many atheist scientists, but it is also confirmed by some passages of The Scripture that clarify some points about their presence [our italics]. He then added: Psalm 23 reads: “The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world [universe], and all who live in it”. Now, after citing the Earth, why should the psalmist also quote the universe and “all who live in it“? This means that the presence of other living beings is taken for granted. Even theology agrees with this thesis. 27 The exegete Father Aristide Serra, professor at the Marianum University of Rome, specified that “in the word universe”, written 66 times in the Bible, “the presence of other inhabited worlds is implicit and obvious”. Some theologians highlight two more quotations recalling the same conviction: (Psalm 96:11): «Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad»; (John 10:16): «I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also». Cardinal Niccolò Cusano, fifteenth century philosopher and scientist, has said: No star by which we are entitles us to exclude the existence of beings, though different from us. Father Angelo Secchi, a Jesuit and astronomer who died in 1876, has written: It is absurd to consider the world around us like a huge uninhabited desert and be searching for the meaning of our universe solely in our small town world. When Padre Pio of Pietrelcina was asked if aliens really existed, he replied: God's omnipotence is not confined to the sole planet Earth. On other planets there are creatures and other beings who have not sinned like us and that pray to God. Reverend Dessauer of Munich, attending a conference of theologians and sociologists, said that the Earth comes under scrutiny by intelligent beings from other planets. Men are to prepare for the encounter with these beings. The Jesuit astronomer José Luis Funes, director of the Vatican Observatory, explicitly states its firm belief in the existence of extra-terrestrial life and also says that one day we will meet the aliens as “brothers”. No coincidence, 162

then, if in November 2009, at Casina Pio IV, during the “Astrobiology” week of studies promoted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the eighth session was entitled “Intelligence Elsewhere and Shadow Life” and was about the assumptions of the existence of forms of sentient life in other worlds, and the possible presence of life forms other than ours inside our own world! Father Funes himself believes that the questions concerning the origin of life, and its existence elsewhere in the universe, are “very interesting” and worth serious consideration, and that “such questions have many philosophical and theological implications...”. We are absolutely convinced of the reasonableness of Father Funes and Mgr. Balducci's assertions and, compared to the only psalm quoted by him (Psalm 23), this book has provided much more extensive and documented evidence of the fact that the writers of the Bible really knew aliens! The encounter with the alien “brothers” predicted by the astronomer Funes as well as the Rev. Dessauer has most likely already taken place and the Bible clearly accounts it. So even the Catholic Church has admitted that the Bible writers were familiar with extraterrestrials. The next logical and desirable step forward would be to give up the forcibly spiritualistic vision and try to read the Bible for what it is: a history book which was written using the cultural and linguistic categories of that time. A Question: If the God traditionally regarded as the source of Judeo-Christian religious thought in fact turns out to be nothing more than an individual (or rather a group of individuals of flesh and bones that have shaped man with their image and resemblance) where does the inspiration of the texts at the basis of the entire Western religion come from? In other words: On what basis was Christianity actually established? In the attempt to find an answer to the question about the “inspiration”, we will soon examine what has been traditionally considered by far the most inspired 163
