One of the main people in a given week was the director of the Vatican Observatory, Father José Gabriel Funes. In an interview he gave to the newspaper Osservatore romano, newsmaker said that "one can believe in God and at the same time believe in aliens," as well as "You can not deny the presence and existence of other worlds, perhaps even more advanced than ours, without calling into question the belief that the creation, incarnation and salvation. "
Similar statements Rev. Funes and Vice father Giuseppe Koch did before, today's statement caused a lot of noise — perhaps because in the world there is another surge of attention to the UFO. British television channel Sky News, presented a series of articles about UFOs and flying saucers, Bi-bi-si Father Funes gave ideas specifically designed for this program, but told The Sun newspaper about one of his readers who, after reading the interview I saw that same UFO and even took off his the camera of your mobile phone.
Representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church is also not deprived silence a newspaper article. Only, according to Alexei Osipov, who is a professor of the Moscow Theological Academy, Orthodoxy does not even allow the probability of existence of extraterrestrial cultures except ours are endowed with reason. First, because in the Bible, there is no guidance on this matter, and second, he believes that in church circles, there are many people who have achieved the highest level of holiness, and not one of them had never spoken this, although they claimed many other things. In Orthodox circles, and there is a view that those spirits who are here from the near-Earth space — it's only demons. In turn, the secretary for inter-Christian relations of the Department for External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate Father Igor Vyzhanov sure: the issue of extraterrestrials for the Russian Orthodox Church is not so important, because that "has no relation to the main mission of the Church — the salvation of the human soul."
Similarly, differences in the church world is amazed: for, as in science, and in the middle-class environment on UFOs there is no single opinion. So the Orthodox may disown "little green men" cross and prayer, and the director of the Vatican Observatory, Father Funes may as well say: "If somewhere is alien beings and civilization, then they deserve to be considered as our brothers."
