Finding extraterrestrial life could unite us and stop us destroying ourselves with WWWIII . I can just imagine the christians trying to convert the heathen aliens to christianity. Religion will have to accept that Gods plan is bigger than just one book. I wonder if Islam will be as accepting to the alien Idea as the vatican and what about evangelical christians? Maybe there will be a war strarted by extremists against aliens. I might be wrong but religious people who do not compromise and stay with the times like the vatican did here are really living in a different century.

Maybe its time for the church to accept the Book of Enoch as part of the biblical canon.

From the little I know about them , they might say that it "could" exists while still hoping to be unique. They have had enough embarrassments by denying the obvious in the past.

It's okay because if we do ever come into contact with a alien race and they turn out to be hostile we can all bet that the Vatican will blame the Pagans

From the little I know about them , they might say that it "could" exists while still hoping to be unique. They have had enough embarrassments by denying the obvious in the past. They are simply hoping to survive as a religion as more and more people expect extraterrestrial life, or at least the potential for it to be found. The Vatican is backpedaling with this statement, it is that obvious. However, if contact does occur I think that they will find their concept of "god" will be either crushed entirely(and all religion laid to waste with the news that we are an experiment) or reinforced thor...
