Pope’s Astronomer says Extraterrestrials Have Souls
In an interview with the Guardian, the Pope’s astronomer Guy Consolmagno said:
Any entity – no matter how many tentacles it has – has a soul.
Consolmagno defines a soul as:
[having] intelligence, free will, freedom to love and freedom to make decisions.
In the same interview, Consolmagno also belittled intelligent design as not merely bad science but “bad theology”. Seems like a cool guy.
