NASA Hiring Priests

NASA Hiring Priests

What does NASA and a British Priest have in common?

NASA has hired Dr. Andrew Davison, a British priest and theology professor at the University of Cambridge, along with 24 other theologians for a program at the space agency’s Center for Theological Inquiry (CTI) at Princeton University.

The goal of the program is to assess how major world religions would react to news of alien life being found.

NASA experts believe with the December 25th launch of the James Webb Space Telescope, they may soon discover alien life.

So, Dr. Davidson seeks to answer whether God made life in other parts of the universe and if He sent a savior to die for the sins of aliens. Another question he is contemplating is if discovering alien life will require a rewrite of the creation story in Genesis.

But, for those of us who believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, we know no rewrite will be needed. First, Jesus, who came to die for the sins of mankind, isn’t just a savior, He is God in human flesh. (John 1:1)

He also appeared in human flesh as evidenced in the Old Testament. (Genesis 17:1-2) But could God choose to appear in other forms? Of course. However, the Bible doesn’t give us any indication that He plans to.

The key for us to remember is that nothing has ever been discovered by science that has disproved the Bible. In fact, scientific discoveries to date have only further confirmed the Bible to be true.

A perfect example of this is when scientists claim the earth is millions of years old. That doesn’t disagree with the Genesis account which shows us in Genesis 1 that man, animals, vegetation and trees were all created initially with age, not as newborns. Genesis 1:26 also tells us that God created mankind in His image.

But the question we really want to ask is why now as we see signs that we are at the end of the church age does NASA want to know how religions would react to alien life?

Could this have something to do with the Rapture of believers that will happen at the end of the Church Age?

How will the One World Government that comes to power explain away the disappearance of millions of followers of Jesus?

Could it be that NASA will have a role in explaining away the Rapture phenomenon with a timely discovery of alien life?  If not, how will the Rapture event be explained by the main stream media?
