Prepare For Alien Contact Urge Scientists
Friday, November 30, 2012 8:37

Source: http://beforeitsnews.com/beyond-science/2012/11/scientists-urge-people-to-be-prepared-for-alien-contact-2440072.html

Excerpt:
A recent paper in the Philisophical Transactions of the Royal Society A entitled “The implications of the discovery of extra-terrestrial life for religion” asks about the future of religion: (i) Will confirmation of extra-terrestrial intelligence (ETI) cause terrestrial religion to collapse? ‘No’ is the answer based upon a summary of the ‘Peters ETI Religious Crisis Survey’. Then the paper examines four specific challenges to traditional doctrinal belief likely to be raised at the detection of ETI: (ii) What is the scope of God’s creation? (iii) What can we expect regarding the moral character of ETI? (iv) Is one earthly incarnation in Jesus Christ enough for the entire cosmos, or should we expect multiple incarnations on multiple planets? (v) Will contact with more advanced ETI diminish human dignity? More than probable contact with extra-terrestrial intelligence will expand the Bible’s vision so that all of creation— including the 13.7 billion year history of the universe replete with all of God’s creatures— will be seen as the gift of a loving and gracious God.
