Vatican Preparing Statement on Extraterrestrial Life

Pope Francis is reportedly preparing a major world statement about extraterrestrial life and its theological implications. Rosana Ubanell from Voxxi News today reported that due to advances in scientific detection methods for the discovery of extraterrestrial life, Pope Francis wants to be ready with a statement about “First Contact”. Ubanell reports that details have yet to be officially announced but that the Vatican’s interest in extraterrestrial life is well documented through recent astrobiology conferences the Vatican Observatory has sponsored or participated in. Father Guy Consolmagno, a Jesuit astronomer and one of the leading Catholic proponents for preparing for the scientific discovery of extraterrestrial life, on July 18, won the Carl Sagan science medal from the American Astronomical Society. Pope Francis, a fellow Jesuit, regularly consults with Consolmagno and other leading Vatican astronomers about scientific issues. It is likely that Pope Francis is preparing an “Urbi et Orbi” speech – Latin for “to the city [of Rome] and the world” – about First Contact with extraterrestrial life.

The Vatican’s scientific interest in extraterrestrial life was publicly revealed for the first time in May 2008 when the head of the Vatican Observatory, Fr Gabriel Funes, also a Jesuit, gave an interview to the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano. Funes made a series of startling statements about how extraterrestrial life is likely to be more ethically evolved than humans, and can be welcomed as brothers. In his interview, which was titled “The extraterrestrial is my brother,” Funes said that intelligent extraterrestrial life may not have experienced a ‘fall’, and may be “free from Original Sin … [remaining] in full friendship with their creator.” This makes it possible to regard them as ‘our brothers’ as Funes explained:

Just as there is a multiplicity of creatures on earth, there can be other beings, even intelligent, created by God. This is not in contrast with our faith because we can’t put limits on God’s creative freedom… “Why can’t we speak of a ‘brother extraterrestrial’? It would still be part of creation…

Most importantly, Funes’ statement makes possible the idea that Christianity can be exported to extraterrestrial worlds that have not experienced a ‘fall’ and are free from original sin.

Just over a year after his interview, Funes was the organizer of the first ever Astrobiology Symposium held by Pontifical Academy of Sciences in November 2009. Consolmagno and Funes have ever since played leading roles for the Vatican Observatory in presenting a theological perspective on the discovery of extraterrestrial life. Most importantly, both have been leading advisors to Pope Francis about scientific issues concerning the discovery of extraterrestrial life.

What is likely to be the content of Pope Francis’ upcoming statement or possible “Urbi et Orbi” speech about alien life? An important clue is a forthcoming presentation by Fr. Consolmagno at a September 18-19, 2014, astrobiology symposium organized by NASA and the Library of Congress that is titled: “Preparing for Discovery: A Rational Approach to the Implications of Finding Microbial, Complex or Intelligent Life Beyond Earth.”

Consolmagno is a featured presenter and will discuss the theological implications of discovering alien life. His topic, “Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?” suggests that Pope Francis agrees that extraterrestrials are capable of the higher ethics involved in understanding the Christian message and becoming Christians.

If Pope Francis is indeed preparing a statement about extraterrestrial life, it is likely to emphasize that there is no incompatibility in Christian teachings with a belief in extraterrestrial life as Fr. Funes proposed in May 2008. More importantly, Pope Francis is likely to emphasize themes of extraterrestrials: not sharing in original sin; being more ethically evolved; and being capable of sharing the Christian message, and being our brothers.

Not all will welcome a statement from Pope Francis advocating extraterrestrials as brothers and worthy of being baptized into the Christian faith. According to Chris Putnam and Tom Horn, authors of Exovaticana, Pope Francis I is preparing to lead the Catholic Church to embrace aliens as “brothers in Christ” – reflective of the 1950s and 1960s contactee reports of benevolent “space brothers.” Putnam’s and Horn’s Exovaticana portends a future religious war between those accepting extraterrestrials as “brothers in Christ” and those believing them to be returning demons about to enslave us. Despite the extensive scholarship found in Exovaticana, it unfortunately skews data towards an overly negative assessment of the motivations of extraterrestrial visitors. Thankfully, the Vatican’s evolving public position, as reflected by statements from its leading astronomers, shows a far more enlightened stance on how to consider the discovery of alien life from a theological perspective. A statement or “Urbi et Orbi” speech from Pope Francis expounding on various themes associated with the view that extraterrestrials are potential “brothers in Christ’ is a welcome position to take on a controversial issue with major world significance.

Phil Schneider: Assassinated after Disclosure [video]

DUMB (Deep Underground Military Base) tunnel

I had just mentioned Phil Schneider in my post about Robin Williams’ murder, and Extraterrestrials.ning.com posted this video. Perfect.

There are a lot of new people on the Internet and subscribed to my blog these days, so I hope this will enlighten you as to what you may have missed.

I’ve listened to Phil a few times with great interest, but hadn’t seen this particular video before. He discusses the hundreds of deep underground military bases (DUMBs) worldwide, the reverse engineering of alien craft, the outrageous black budget funded by unsuspecting American taxpayers, and says that the truth must come out and the government impeached and removed.

Well, that was almost twenty years ago, wasn’t it? I guess few listened. And he gave his life to bring us that warning.

Phil was ‘suicided’ for exposing the Illuminati/New World Order/shadow government.

Thank you Phil for your efforts to wake up the masses. We honour you now.  ~ BP

 

HD 720p: Warning (GRAPHIC CONTENT) – This new film features Phil Schneider at the Preparedness Expo in 1995 with added features along with rare photos and footage as he lectures. See more info below.

Phil Schneider is an ex-government geologist and structural engineer who was involved in building underground military bases around the United States, (possessing a level 3 security clearance, “Rhyolite 38″), and to be one of only three people to have survived a deadly battle in which 66 American and NATO “Delta Force” soldiers were killed. This battle occurred in 1979 between Grey Aliens, U.S. Military and NATO Forces at an underground base inside Dulce, NM.

For the last two years of his life Schneider gave over 30 lectures to a variety of audiences across the globe. Lectures that exposed a corrupt U.S. government, New World Order and the disturbing “Alien Agenda”.

Despite several attempts on his life during these years, Schneider was found dead in his Wilsonville, Oregon apartment on January 17, 1996. He had been deceased for several days when he was found. He was found with his own catheter wrapped around his neck several times. At the time, Phil was very weak due to multiple physical illnesses including cancer, which he firmly believed was a result from what blasted him in the chest during the underground E.T. battle in Dulce, NM.

Fleet of Flying Saucers Caught on Google Earth + Magic Carpet-Shaped Cloud in England [videos]

I’m getting into the space news this week. It’s far more exciting than what’s happening on the ground.

Daniel has found a large number of space craft this month hovering above a heavily populated area with GoogleEarth.

These are big, and I guess masked from below, but something definitely shows up on the space cameras. 

I don’t see where he tells us where this is.  Maybe you can figure it out. There are a lot of swimming pools, and high density homes, roads, but plenty of hills with some greenery. I’m thinking California, but perhaps not.  

You can see more on the multitude of documented UFO sightings here.   ~ BP

Interview #2 with Capt. Mark Richards on Project Camelot [video]

If you liked the first interview, you’ll like this one, related by Kerry from notes she and Richards’ wife, Jo Ann, made at the prison.

I must say, he shares a lot of bizarre stuff, and much that disagrees with other information we’ve been given, but take it for what it’s worth.  ~ BP

Published on 1 Aug 2014

This is my 2nd interview with CAPTAIN MARK RICHARDS. This contains my recall backed by handwritten notes from on site in Vacaville Prison with the help of his wife, Jo Ann Richards.

I spent nearly 4 hours this time talking with him and have carefully chronicled his testimony to the best of my ability as closely to his own words as possible under the circumstances.

The subject matter covers the Secret Space Program and our relations with various ET races both on and off planet. Our current level of technology and the ET connection between governments around the world and the military.

I will be posting a copy of his recent letter detailing the location of the current INTERSTELLAR SPACE CENTERS on Planet Earth and also the lists of questions along with a copy of our notes taken during the interview.

UFOs Over Toronto Caught On Tape

Starship Earth: The Big Picture:

Toronto organizes an ET disclosure symposium and then the ships appear. Ask and ye shall receive. They’re heeeeere!

Something was flying over Toronto on Saturday night, causing residents to contact police and take to social media with images and videos of lights in the sky.

“It was really high up, and was round, bright and shining,” Sarah Chun, who recorded videos of the lights with her iPad and posted them to YouTube, told the Toronto Star. “At first I thought it was stars or something, but it was too bright to be. I didn’t know what it was.”

Chun said the lights lasted for about 25 minutes.

“It kind of flew, and then disappeared,” she was quoted as saying.

Some witnesses posted photos to Twitter, including one taken before sunset that looks more like a bird than a flying saucer. Others posted images of a mysterious light hovering over the city:
