Catholic view on aliens
#5
There is a topic on this forum that discusses this issue.

The likely answer is that the 'aliens' are not just figments of imaginations powered by whiskey, but they are not creatures from other bodies in space.  Rather, they are spiritual beings of some kind.  With this in mind, our basic Catholic instruction kicks in and tells us to immediately stop and not attempt any contact.  At all.

Whether or not there can be sentient beings on other planets or moons, that is an interesting question.  On the one hand, I could foresee some obvious theological problems with that.  I know some wonk from the Vatican recently declared a 'welcome' to non Earth creatures, but I personally think that we are far more unique than the Sciencists would have us believe.
