Actually KH learned of extraterrestrial life forms when his carpet flew out of control and he ended up in orbit and a Martian flying saucer had to pull him back down to earth.

My other taboooooos are in theos-l, just like to nag and post nr. 5 
of my 'Lutherian' list in this group :-)

The Pope's chief astronomer says that life on Mars cannot be ruled 

Writing in the Vatican newspaper, the astronomer, Father Gabriel 
Funes, said intelligent beings created by God could exist in outer 

Father Funes, director of the Vatican Observatory near Rome, is a 
respected scientist who collaborates with universities around the 

The search for forms of extraterrestrial life, he says, does not 
contradict belief in God. 

The official Vatican newspaper headlines his article 'Aliens Are My 

'Free from sin' 

Just as there are multiple forms of life on earth, so there could 
exist intelligent beings in outer space created by God. And some 
aliens could even be free from original sin, he speculates. 

Asked about the Catholic Church's condemnation four centuries ago of 
the Italian astronomer and physicist, Galileo, Father Funes 
diplomatically says mistakes were made, but it is time to turn the 
page and look towards the future. 

Science and religion need each other, and many astronomers believe in 
God, he assures readers. 

To strengthen its scientific credentials, the Vatican is organising a 
conference next year to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of 
the author of the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin. 

Imagine when KH spoke of extra terrestial lifeforms, I am sure he had 
whispered in Jules Vernes ear to invent moontravel ;-)
