"Vatican says aliens could exist"

This is a post totally unrelated to law, but it's so interesting that I just can't resist.

BBC, Yahoo and WorldNetDaily report that the Pope's chief astronomer, Fr. Jose Gabriel Funes, said that the search for forms of extraterrestrial life, does not contradict belief in God.

"To say it with St. Francis, if we can consider some earthly creatures as 'brothers' or 'sisters,' why could we not speak of a 'brother alien'? He would also belong to the creation."

The Bible "is not a science book," Funes said, adding that he believes the Big Bang theory is the most "reasonable" explanation for the creation of the universe.
Now I wonder what the creationists have to say about this...
