Vatican scientists co-host conference on alien life forms

The VORG are sponsoring a conference in Arizona on ET life:


Exo-VaticanaNearly 200 scientists are attending the conference, called The Search for Life Beyond the Solar System: Exoplanets, Biosignature & Instruments, which runs from March 16-21 in Tucson, Arizona. The Vatican Observatory is co-hosting the conference with the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory.

‘Finding life beyond Earth is one of the great challenges of modern science and we are excited to have the world leaders in this field together in Tucson,’ said event co-chair Daniel Apai, assistant professor of astronomy and planetary sciences at the UA Steward Observatory.

  1. Chris, I was looking at going to this (since I live in Tucson) but the costs are prohibitive. It looks like 600 dollars for registration even if you are staying off site. Ugh.

      Wow: Registration Fee = $600 Parking Fee= $60 and Service Fee = $6……… Total Cost = $ “Just Joking”…….. God Bless… And have a great day in the Lord…

    I saw this same article on the Headlines at Steve Quayle’s website. Is Alien Life Out There? Vatican Observatory Co-Hosts Science Conference in Arizona. First thought was I remembered the scene where E.T. points up his finger and says “Phone” and Gertie (Drew Barrymore) says “E.T. phone home”. Well maybe the script should have read E.T. phone Rome. God Bless…

  3. Joseph D'Hippolito says:

    This is another sign that Catholicism is dysfunctional (to put it diplomatically). Catholic leaders waste time on this when dioceses cannot fund churches and schools that serve they say they love. The pope refuses to discipline bishops who enabled sexual predators in the clergy. I’ve long since had enough of these apostates. Let them all burn in Hell … the sooner, the better!

  4. James says:

    This might be off topic, but I hope those people are at least in Heaven, and they are the Janitors!!!!

    Here is an article from the Vatican Observatory News – Vatican and Lucifer.
    There was another strange phone call today. Somebody was apparently just recently hurt by a misinformation which has been circulating on the web for two or three years. This calumny claims that the Vatican astronomers named some instrument or telescope “Lucifer”.
    It is fairly clearly a typical case of degradation of information. The truth of the matter is that the Vatican Observatory is a member of the Mount Graham International Observatory (MGIO) consortium, together with a number of other institutions from Europe and the USA. The MGIO comprises a large number of stake holders, most of whom have nothing to do with the Vatican Observatory or its telescope.
    How does this work? It is quite similar to share holders in a company. Supposing you had a six percent share in a company, while Mr XYZ had a four percent share. What could you do if Mr XYZ decided to name his pet hamster “Demon”?
    One of the stake holders in the MGIO is a group of European institutes who built an infrared camera and spectroscope, and named it “Lucifer”. So what happened? First, somebody reported that an instrument called “Lucifer” was installed on Mt Graham. Then somebody remarked that Mt Graham also hosts the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope, and that it is somewhat amusing that Mt Graham has both Vatican and Lucifer. Then the information somehow degraded and the slur was born: Vatican astronomers are supposedly friends with Lucifer… (End of article)
    I am thinking, I have heard this type of talk before. And the serpent said to the woman: *No, you shall not die the death.
    For God doth know that in what day soever you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened: and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Well, if what they are looking for (E.T.) shows up; and they have a close encounter of the third kind. I’m afraid Exo-Vatican Council of the third kind will shortly ensue. God Bless…
