More and more religions are going public with their beliefs about the existence of extraterrestrials, and who they possibly are.
The Christian Bible, in Genesis 1:27, says, “And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” In a 2009 interview, astronomer and director of the Vatican Observatory, Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, said believing the universe may host aliens, even intelligent ones, does not contradict a faith in God. “How can we rule out that life may have developed elsewhere? This does not contradict our faith, because we cannot put limits on God’s creative freedom.” said Funes.
In Russia, at a 2008 meeting between Muslims and Jews, both revealed that their religions believe in the existence of extraterrestrials.
“According to the Holy Qur’an (Koran), the Almighty speaks about the creation of various worlds.
We know the world of people, jinns, plants and animals. Other creatures may inhabit the worlds out of our reach,” said Chairman of the International Department of the Muftis’ Council, Rushan Abbyasov.
Rabbi Zinovy Kogan, Chairman of Congress of Jewish Religious Organizations and Associations stressed, “The Lord is the first cause for everything existing in micro and macro worlds. It cannot be excluded that other creatures, similar to man, exist on other worlds.”
The theories of terrestrial evolution and creation have failed to provide indisputable proof that either is the origin of modern man on Earth. Many people, angry at religions and science for deceiving them for thousands of years, are beginning to consider the possibility that humans are this planet’s extraterrestrials.
