"Any intelligent aliens living elsewhere in the universe [like that pea in the photo] should be considered God's children, no matter what they look like" ... and "any entity - no matter how many tentacles it has [or hasn't got ... like the pea] - has a soul," the Pope's astronomer, Brother Guy Consolmagno, has said.
This comes only a few months after physicist, Steven Hawking, claimed that there is no need for a god to explain the origin of the universe (which, as an atheist, I naturally agree with).
Brother Consolmagno also says that "the whole idea of what creation means is not a case of who wound up the clock and set it going, it's the fact there's a clock to be wound up in the first place. A god that started things up would be a pagan god. The god I believe in is outside space and time."
What the hell is that suppose to mean!
The Vatican always finds a way to confuse the shit out of people by talking utter nonsense.
