Cites UFO DIGEST
in AP Scoop Article

It was quite a surprise to discover that Bill Cox from HeraldTribune.com cited UFODIGEST in his article Yet another AP scoop, published Wednesday, May 14, 2008 at 11:05 a.m., which focuses on an Associated Press article concerning the Vatican's top astronomer as stating that UFOs and extraterrestrial life, although not proven, could well exist. Mr. Cox refers to our articles disclosing this fact, published well over a year ago. We have many articles concerning the Vatican Observatory and the Roman Catholic Church. With the publication of this article it is becoming clear that disclosure may not be far away.

Mr. Cox specifically uses as reference our articles concerning Monsignor Corrado Balducci and his beliefs concerning religion and UFOs!

The following is Mr. Cox's article:

So The Associated Press thinks it?s news that the Vatican?s official astronomer says it?s OK to believe in alien beings. Well, that?s a start. Maybe one day they?ll work up the nerve to cover the official who says UFOs not only exist, but are extraterrestrial and in need of investigation.

For now, the AP is content to stick with the Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, whose 'The Alien Is My Brother' article appeared this week in the papacy's in-house newsletter. Funes, who runs the Vatican Observatory, said belief in ETs doesn't contradict church doctrine. But he cautioned that such belief has no basis in fact.

'It is possible' Funes wrote, 'even if until now, we have no proof. But certainly in such a big universe this hypothesis cannot be excluded.'

Guess it's still irresponsible and zany for the AP to consider giving a little ink to Monsignor Corrado Balducci, who has evidently been all over Italian television this year (http://www.ufodigest.com/balducci.html) urging a closer look at UFOs. Balducci's pronouncements make Funes look like a wallflower.

'Extraterrestrials are not demonic,' he said in 2000; 'they are not due to psychological impairment, they are not a case of entity attachment, but these encounters deserve to be studied carefully. ... By now, at this point, there are several considerations made with certainty that these beings do exist. It cannot be doubted. It can also be said ... that this phenomena does exist.'
