Vatican sceptical about close encounters of the third kind
The recent discovery of an Earth twin has boosted chances there is intelligent life on other planets. But while Pope Francis's telescope scans the starlit skies, the Vatican is sceptical of ever meeting Mr. Spock.

On a leafy hilltop near the papal summer home of Castel Gandolfo sits the Vatican's Observatory, one of the oldest astronomical research institutions in the world, where planetary scientists mix the study of meteorites and the Big Bang theory with theology.

Boasting a prestigious research centre at the University of Arizona in the United States, the institute has never shied away from asking whether there could be life on other planets and is thrilled with the discovery of an "Earth 2.0". ...

What is clear, he says, is that while God may have created aliens and planets similar to Earth, there can be no second Jesus.

I don't know where you got that from, John, but read on from this quote down in the article.

The article states the Vatican does not believe there are aliens on other planets which is in line with the teaching of the Bible.

In all probability there is à reason........ For such a "devilish name"!!
Apologies if this has already been mentioned in earlier posts on this thread.
"Lucifer" is Latin for bringer of light, or light bearer, so naming a telescope Lucifer isn't far-fetched, since it gather's light from long distances.

anti b states "...Posters criticize other Christians - those who believe in the death, burial, & resurrection of Christ; comparing themselves with others."
I gather that this is a criticism.
Maybe it would help to distinguish between
"criticism" and contending for the faith...holding to that which is true.
As far as more fairer skinned people murdering than darker skinned...one must look at things in proportion,providing that one even wants to break it down that way- "white" vs. "black".
Christians don't see color because one is either saved or lost.
Any inclination to address "racial disparity" is vain and just serves to keep Christians distracted from what is most important. No one in heaven will be there because of their features here on Earth.

I would say anti b. That we decry the murder of any person regardless of race no matter who does it. Why aren't you upset about all murders that happen in and out of prisons, do all lives matter to you?

seeing that it never comes up, it would be a violation of the rules to comment on it.

seeing you continue to break the rules by spamming let me ask you a few questions.

How come in none of your posts do you decry the thousands of black children killed by their mothers in the abortion clinics and concentrate on a handful of people?

How come in none of your posts do you decry the thousands of blacks that are killed by blacks every year, their families are devastated, but it doesn't seem to bother you at all?

How come you don't decry the thousands of black mothers that are left without a husbands and fathers to their babies they have and must struggle as single moms, sometimes with multiple babies by multiple irresponsible fathers?

There were more murderers done by whites but you have chosen to emphasize blacks, how come you have no upset for the nearly 2,500 victims and their families who were murdered by black people in the latest crime data?

How come your not upset that people were booed off the stage for saying all lives matter instead of black lives matter, do you not think that all people of all races have significance?

Your outrage is selective at best and hypocritical at worst.

My sister and brotherinlaw are both detectives who are 2 of only 8 white essential staff in an aboriginal community, nurse, docter dentist teacher and 2 other cops, they are there because they care, it sure ain't the $. And for all the good they do they need to live in a fenced compound due to the violence, yet my sis and hubby feel safer there than in Sydney, it gets on my goat too a bit when all cops are labelled rascist our corrupt, many cops really care about their job and do it well keeping us safe.

Thanks Dave. I thought for sure I'd get some serious backlash for that rant, but not a peep. Not sure how to take that but these conversations rarely go well anyway. The topic of racism is a difficult one to discuss, but like any issue, I think we should always be brutally honest, factual, and good listeners so we know where each camp is coming from with their thoughts.
Yes, there are white racist cops, black racist cops, and racist officials, but thank goodness that they are few and that their poisoness views won't be tolerated and their crimes will be prosecuted. What sets me off are the accusations that the white man hates, and is systematically slaughtering the black. This nonscense is precisely how the Farrakhans, Jacksons, Sharptons, and Black Panthers, etc, are poisoning and brainwashing the ignorant.

Thank You~! and LOL~!
I can be assumed ... hahahahaha
my older brother was arrested while drunk for a B&E (breaking and entering) he has been previously incarcerated for rape twice ... they put him handcuffed in the back seat of a squad car and locked a police dog in with him ... he actually was beast enough to kick the car door open and run away ... white criminals get the treatment just like any others ...
and God Bless you for your sympathy
the police are getting out of hand and so are the people ... my brother was enabled by my mother a Catholic who left the convent before she took her final vows, she blamed the victims starting with me, and after two of her sons got convicted of rape kept on blaming the victims ...

I could add that our family originated in Wayne County Michigan
ponder that Anti Believer ... lol

Get Real,

You have my sympathy.
Was this black cellmate a public official, hired to protect the innocent?

Lastly, don't assume to know anyone here on such a personal level that you know who they do and don't weep for, or what they include in their prayers. These issues have been discussed many times over but you assume they haven't because it's not the topic of the day. "Who believes the testimony of black people"? The answer is the same as those who believe the testimonies of white people. Everyone. There is no difference except in the minds of those who just can see past racism or some massive, nationwide white bred conspiracy. Again, there are white racists, and there are black racists, racist cops, and others, but this is a small minority. I'm so sick and tired of this word being used as to label anything and everything that goes wrong for the another skin color, black or white.

...a jurys decision? Yes, there is racism, but systematic black slaughter? White cops do bad things just as black cops do at times, but there are few of them. The racial divide is kept festering by the racists themselves and these sensationalist racism stories seem to make the thugs into heros. Even if the thug has a rocket launcher aimed at an officer, God forbid the officer defends himself if the officer is white and the thug is black. A black officer and a white thug...never a peep because the whites know the aggressive thug got what he asked for. Nobody calls the KKK to riot and burn homes/cars/businesses down to the ground in protest. Racism exists, for sure, but don't paint some false picture of a country of whites beating the blacks down and some murderous white man conspiracy where white cops are walking around just murdering blacks for the heck of it because they don't like their skin color. Stop listening to the Farrakhans, Jacksons, Sharptons, and thug rappers of this fallen world who live to breed hatred and incite racial violence and extremism.

Hi AB, you really have the people here all wrong, and slaughter is a really terrible, over the top choice of words. I know of two more recent cases where the cops were overly aggressive and death ensued. Black cops were among the guilty here, let's not cloud that fact, and they have been/are being prosecuted. Another tragedy is a white, 25yr old cop who pulled a black man over for not displaying a front plate. The driver tried to drive away, and the cop shot him in the head. Wrong, wrong, wrong, and that cop is in jail right now. Genocde of black people? No. Nobody here cares about lost lives, black or white? Wrong. Cops in the inner citys are in fear for their lives each day because of the bolder, more violent, agressive thugs who will murder for a laugh or on a dare. Yes, there is racism. Yes, there are bad cops, and yes, sometimes black criminals get shot, etc, but most often than not, the thugs are the aggressors and everyone cries racist when one gets shot, even though black cops are often involved. Who crys racism when a little white girl gets shot through her bedroom window by a black thug? Who crys racism when a white thug gets shot by a black cop? Who crys for the whites who are randomly targetted for death by black thugs because they weren't happy with

Four incarcerated black women have died mysteriously since the death of Sandra Bland. Not to mention the black men who are being slaughtered.
The secret recording of PP should have been done in the 70s when it was known its target demographic was black babies. But who believes the testimony of black people? It is as though no one listens because of racial conditioning.
Posters criticize other Christians - those who believe in the death, burial, & resurrection of Christ; comparing themselves with others.
Make your vote count and criticize the public officials who silently endorse unlawful arrest, so that murder occurs behind closed doors. Or should we just keep saying "Nobody's perfect? and we all make MISTAKES!!?"
you do the time, it has been proved that, sadly, Sandra Bland committed suicide. Generally speaking people are not arrested for being in a law abiding situations. You also are not accounting for the fact that there has not been a news article that validates your claims on SermonAudio. Nor are you seemingly upset about the thousands of Christians being martyred in the Middle East.

You posted the same sentiment on another thread and were graciously answered by Lurker.

Brother John God bless,
Around 300ad rc proclamationrayers to saints.
5thcentury. Rc proclamation: praying for Mary.
600ad pray directly to Mary,
1800s proclamation by rc Mary sinless.
1900s rc proclamation: Mary ascends to heaven (didn't die)
1900s Mary mother of the church by rc proclamationrayers to saints Mary and even angels in the hope that the "patron will be granted salvation for the supplicant after intercession with god.
Even though the bible, emphatically, forbids praying to the dead.

Mary has already been elevated to the position of co-redemption.
