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.
