So, my son was walking through the living room and Sen Kennedy of Louisiana said something stupid about how Democrats not giving the Republicans exactly what they want on the funding issue was "the reason why aliens won't speak to us." Presumably, the man believes in advanced extraterrestrial life of some form. I mentioned that this seems odd to me, given that Kennedy's positions on things in general indicates to me that he's probably in the "intelligent design camp." That led my son to ask me a theological question that I've never really thought about or researched....how does the Bible address the issue of other planets? Would theologists realize how inadequate their book is if alien life is discovered? If god divided the day and the night and the earth was without form and void, why is there water just below the surface on Mars? Seriously, someone page me a priest! I have questions!
