It’s difficult to get away from outlandish predictions about the year to come.
Sooo, according to the YourNewsWire website, the Pope is about to reveal the existence of aliens.
The evidence is that the Pope said he would baptize a Martian.
The Pontiff explained:
“If, for example, tomorrow an expedition of Martians came, and some of them came to us: green, with that long nose and big ears, just like children paint them. … And one says, ‘But I want to be baptized!’ What would happen?”
Even better, some UFO sites believe that the Pope has just had his briefing on the Vatican’s long relationship with aliens.
However, Nigel Watson, author of UFOs of the First World War, remains skeptical.
“The Pope said he would be willing to baptize Martians, but he was using this to illustrate a point, rather than that he was likely to be confronted with a Martian or any other type of alien wanting to join the church now or in the near future. He was being theoretical, but the Vatican has indeed considered the possibilities of extraterrestrial life and its implications. So the Pope is keeping an open mind and knows how to gain his audiences’ attention by dropping a mention of Martians into his speech.”
