Catholic view on aliens
#25
It's interesting to note that if intelligent life exists, then philosophically speaking it is human - since man is defined as a 'rational animal'. This would apply equally to aliens and to us.

Theologically, it would seem difficult to say that God placed some sorts of rational animals in a different order of grace/nature (pure nature, or supernatural state and not having fallen etc). Or would it?

Though I do think the phenomenon is largely demonic though. One other possible conjecture (no evidence whatsoever for this though): ufo's are manned by our distant ancestors (probably from pre-Flood times) - that could explain why certain aliens are described as very much human looking.
