“There are no Vatican secrets about UFOs. Neither I nor anyone I know has any evidence that extraterrestrials exist. We do not believe that ‘Jesus is a hybrid’ or any of the other bizarre claims that this author makes. He is either seriously deluded, or a deliberate con-man.”
While this is not too surprising in light of thew worldview analysis in Exo-Vaticana, it is a deflection. While Consolmagno has certainly implied in print that Jesus came “not only as the Son of Man but also as a Child of other races” he has publicly suggested bizarre acts like baptizing an ET, “no matter how many tentacles it has,” However, the thesis of our book does not rest on one man but a preponderance of the evidence. It was Pope John Paul II’s close friend Monsignor Corrado Balducci that went on Italian television announcing that in light of the UFO phenomenon, the existence of ETs is a certainty. Interestingly the new documentary Sirius features Balducci saying they are superior to us as well. The Catholic Church has never disassociated itself from the below statement.Luckily this was recorded so the blanket denials and obfuscation tactics will not stand up to scrutiny.
So which story is it Vatican: “there is no evidence” or “it’s a certainty”?
