"Secretly, I had reached back into the past, contacting people I would trust with this information and who were uniquely qualified to explain if something truly was breaking through from the spirit world. The implications were all so deeply disturbing. I could guard their identity for the time being, referring to some of them lightly, as 'God's Ghostbusters' to conceal their deeper identities and our mutual challenge until the time was right."


In January of last year, the Royal Society, the National Academy of Science of the UK, and the Commonwealth hosted representatives from NASA, the European Space Agency, and the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, during its 350th anniversary celebration. The event offered some dizzying intellects in the featured discussion, “The Detection of Extraterrestrial Life and the Consequences for Science and Society.” Lord Martin Rees, President of the Royal Society and Astronomer Royal, announced that aliens may be “staring us in the face” in a form humans are unable to recognize. Other speakers used words like “overwhelming evidence” and “unprecedented proof” to signify how close we may be to making discovery of intelligent alien life. Some, like Simon Conway Morris, professor of evolutionary paleobiology at Cambridge University, worried that contact with these unknowns might not be a good thing. “Extra-terrestrials might not only resemble us but have our foibles, such as greed, violence, and a tendency to exploit others’ resources,” he said. “And while aliens could come in peace they are quite as likely to be searching for somewhere to live, and to help themselves to water, minerals and fuel.”[i] While other scientists, astronomers, and physicists agreed with Morris’ concerns (most notably, renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking), some speakers at the gathering of intellectuals were more optimistic, imagining ETs someday appearing as man’s saviors or, at a minimum, benevolent space brothers. When Father José Gabriel Funes in a long interview with the L’Osservatore Romano newspaper weighed in on the question, “Are we alone in the Universe?” he said there is a certain possibility of intelligent life elsewhere in the cosmos, and that such a notion “doesn’t contradict our faith.” He then added: “How can we rule out that life may have developed elsewhere? Just as we consider earthly creatures as ‘a brother,’ and ‘sister,’ why should we not talk about an ‘extraterrestrial brother’? It would still be part of creation.”[ii] Such statements by Funes were the latest in a string of recent comments by Vatican astronomers confirming the belief that discovery may be made in the near future of alien life, including intelligent life, and that this encounter would not unhinge the doctrine of Christ.

In 2005, another Vatican astronomer, Guy Consolmagno tackled this subject in a fifty-page booklet, Intelligent Life in the Universe?: Catholic Belief and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligent Life, in which he similarly concluded that chances are better than not that mankind is facing a future discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence. Before that, Monsignor Corrado Balducci made even bigger news when he said ETs were actually already interacting with Earth and that some of the Vatican’s leaders were aware of it.

Still, perhaps most intriguing was maverick Catholic theologian Father Malachi Martin who, before his suspicious death in 1999, hinted at something like imminent extraterrestrial contact more than once. While on Coast to Coast AM radio in 1997, Art Bell asked Martin why the Vatican was heavily invested in the study of deep space at Mt Graham Observatory in southeastern Arizona. As a retired professor of the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Martin was uniquely qualified to hold, in secret, information pertaining to the Vatican’s Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT) project at the Mount Graham International Observatory (MGIO). Martin’s answer ignited a firestorm of interest among Christian and secular UFOlogists when he said, “Because the mentality…amongst those who [are] at the…highest levels of Vatican administration and geopolitics, know…what’s going on in space, and what’s approaching us, could be of great import in the next five years, ten years” (emphasis added). Those cryptic words “what’s approaching us, could be of great import” was followed in subsequent interviews with discussion of a mysterious “sign in the sky” that Malachi believed was approaching from the north. People familiar with Malachi believe he may have been referring to a near-future arrival of alien intelligence. Yet, if ET life is something Vatican officials have privately considered for some time, why speak of it so openly now, in what some perceive as a careful, doctrinal unveiling over the last few years? Is this a deliberate effort by church officials to “warm-up” the laity to ET disclosure? Are official church publications on the subject an attempt to soften the blow before disclosure arrives, in order to help the faithful retain their orthodoxy in light of unprecedented forthcoming knowledge?

Writing for Newsweek on Thursday, May 15, 2008, in the article “The Vatican and Little Green Men,” Sharon Begley noted that “[this] might be part of a push to demonstrate the Vatican’s embrace of science… Interestingly, the Vatican has plans to host a conference in Rome next spring to mark the 150th anniversary of the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin’s seminal work on the theory of evolution. Conference organizers say it will look beyond entrenched ideological positions—including misconstrued creationism. The Vatican says it wants to reconsider the problem of evolution ‘with a broader perspective’ and says an ‘appropriate consideration is needed more than ever before.’”[iii]

The “appropriate consideration” Begley mentioned may have been something alluded to by Guy Consolmagno three years earlier in an interview with the Sunday Herald. That article pointed out how Consolmagno’s job included reconciling “the wildest reaches of science fiction with the flint-eyed dogma of the Holy See” and that his latest mental meander was about “the Jesus Seed,” described as “a brain-warping theory which speculates that, perhaps, every planet that harbours intelligent, self-aware life may also have had a Christ walk across its methane seas, just as Jesus did here on Earth in Galilee. The salvation of the Betelguesians may have happened simultaneously with the salvation of the Earthlings.”[iv] This sounds like a sanctified version of panspermia—the idea that life on earth was “seeded” by something a long time ago such as an asteroid impact—but in this case, “the seed” was divinely appointed and reconciled to Christ.

The curious connection between the Vatican’s spokespersons and the question of extraterrestrials and salvation was further hinted in the May, 2008 L’Osservatore Romano interview with Father Funes, titled, “The Extraterrestrial is My Brother.” In Google and blog translations of the Italian feature, Funes responds to the question of whether extraterrestrials would need to be redeemed, which he believes should not be assumed. “God was made man in Jesus to save us,” he says. “If other intelligent beings exist, it is not said that they would have need of redemption. They could remain in full friendship with their Creator.”[v]

By “full friendship” Funes reflected how some Vatican theologians accept the possibility that an extraterrestrial species may exist that is morally superior to men—closer to God than we fallen humans are—and that, as a consequence, they may come here to evangelize us. Father Guy Consolmagno took up this same line of reasoning when he wrote in his book, Brother Astronomer: Adventures of a Vatican Scientist:

So the question of whether or not one should evangelize is really a moot point. Any alien we find will learn and change from contact with us, just as we will learn and change from contact with them. It’s inevitable. And they’ll be evangelizing us, too. [vi]


In a paper for the Interdisciplinary Encyclopedia of Religion and Science, Father Giuseppe Tanzella-Nitti of the Pontifical University in Rome (where the Vatican's deepest theology is discoursed) explains just how mankind could actually be evangelized during contact with “spiritual aliens,” as every believer in God would, he argues, greet an extraterrestrial civilization as an extraordinary experience and would be inclined to respect the alien and to recognize the common origin of our different species as originating from the same Creator. According to Giuseppe, this contact by non-terrestrial intelligence would then offer new possibilities “of better understanding the relationship between God and the whole of creation.”[vii] Giuseppe states this would not immediately oblige the Christian “to renounce his own faith in God simply on the basis of the reception of new, unexpected information of a religious character from extraterrestrial civilizations,”[viii] but that such a renunciation could come soon after as the new “religious content” originating from outside the earth is confirmed as reasonable and credible. “Once the trustworthiness of the information has been verified” the believer would have to “reconcile such new information with the truth that he or she already knows and believes on the basis of the revelation of the One and Triune God, conducting a re-reading [of the Gospel] inclusive of the new data…”[ix] How this “more complete” ET Gospel might deemphasize or significantly modify our understanding of salvation through Jesus Christ is unknown, but former Vatican Observatory vice director, Christopher Corbally, in his article “What if There Were Other Inhabited Worlds” concludes that Jesus simply might not remain the only Word of salvation: “I would try to explore the alien by letting ‘it’ be what it is, without rushing for a classification category, not even presuming two genders,” Corbally said, before dropping this bombshell:

While Christ is the First and the Last Word (the Alpha and the Omega) spoken to humanity, he is not necessarily the only word spoke to the universe…. For, the Word spoken to us does not seem to exclude an equivalent ‘Word’ spoken to aliens. They, too, could have had their ‘Logos-event’. Whatever that event might have been, it does not have to be a repeated death-and-resurrection, if we allow God more imagination than some religious thinkers seem to have had. For God, as omnipotent, is not restricted to one form of language, the human. [x]

That high-ranking spokespersons for the Vatican have in recent years increasingly offered such language acknowledging the likelihood of extraterrestrial intelligence and the dramatic role ET’s introduction to human civilization could play in regard to altering established creeds about anthropology, philosophy, religion, and redemption could be beyond consequential in the near-future.

  4. Hi Tom,

    It sounds like these Vatican folks are failing to heed John’s warning to test the spirits (1 John 4:1-6).

    It has been mentioned by many UFO investigators (both Christian and secular) that these “aliens” simply cannot be trusted to tell the truth. They are habitual liars.

    Besides, they have already given Newagers and Theosophist their “gospel,” which always turns out to contradict the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

    In short, these “aliens” that the Vatican hopes to contact are fallen angels—who are condemned to the lake of fire without any hope of forgiveness. They have no hope at all. Therefore, the only thing these “aliens” can offer is FALSE HOPE.

    As you know, only the true gospel of Jesus Christ is TRUE HOPE.

    Just like the Pharisees of Jesus day, these modern day rebels are blindly working to fulfill prophecies that they don’t even believe in.

    That’s Godly irony.

    Keep up the good work. I'm praying for you all in Jesus' name.

  5. Hello Dear...,
    I am very surprise from you. really your writing and presentation style is very nice. Keep going.....

  6. How come we never hear much about who the Bible describes as "the synagogue of Satan",in Revelation 3:9?

    Has Tom Horn written anything about them? Who are they today? Any thoughts?

  7. keep up the way of writing ..........as its really superb

  8. Tom Horn has the distinction of being one of the few people in the "Wild West" to have been hanged by an automated process.

  9. I've long been a fan and follower of your work, as we shared an appreciation for the more intellectually interesting aspects of the squared circle. The blog is a welcome surprise and I look forward to reading it regularly. outsource development

  11. Really Awesome blog and i really liked it way you presented all stuff

  12. Nanotechnology will help us to find the evidence of extraterrestrial life.Materials used in nanotechnology as carbon nanotubes could help to makes advance technologies for future.

  13. while you cannot be sure that God didn't make people elsewhere, you can probably explain ET as descendants of genetically engineered people and regular people who went offworld to escape The Flood, not wanting to repent. Even so, the demonic element to UFOs is well established. That doesn't mean some aren't flesh and blood, with demon associates. maybe some that Malachi Martin would call "perfectly possessed," someone in total cooperation with the possession.

    That Christ died only for humans and needed a pure human bloodline is not biblical. The issue of keeping a record of the bloodline was to IDENTIFY the Messiah. Romans 8:10-22 Col. 1:15,20 show that
    all the creation awaits the Second Coming, and is part of God's plan, hints are in OT, Rev. 5:13 shows all manner of animal and lower life forms praising God.

  14. Thomas Horn welcomes you to learn the secrets of the true Lost Symbol.

  15. It is essential that we check to ensure changes take place as promised, as well as record them on relevant documents, with publicity and to inform consumers of their impact.

  16. The investigation series from tom horn are simply amazing, theres no doubt about it.

  17. Great stuff here. The information and the detail were just perfect. I think that your perspective is deep, its just well thought out and really fantastic to see someone who knows how to put these thoughts down so well. Great job on this.

  18. That the system gives the caller intuitive menus and instruction is a very impressive feature.

  19. Nice information, many thanks to the author. It is incomprehensible to me now, but in general, the usefulness and significance is overwhelming. Thanks again and good luck!project outsourcing sites

  20. I am absolutely amazed at how terrific the stuff is on this site. I have saved this webpage and I truly intend on visiting the site in the upcoming days. Keep up the excellent work!UAE property

  21. An estimated five hundred million units are sold in this state each year, which require initial deposits that increase the state’s income by two million dollars, according to the study’s findings.

  22. I believe Tom Horn is some kind of front agent for either the U.S. Army or some alphabet agency. There seems to be an approved stable of alternative researchers - the Coast to Coast crowd (although I do trust Alex Jones)- whose work, by virtue of its immediate acceptance within this community, and an apparent abundance of the resources necessary to publish, always seem to succeed. This guy, Horn, I believe is a fraud, and so is Major Ed "I'm not a prophet but I can see into the future" Dames.
