There’s nothing quite like a former high-ranking official giving credence to conspiracy theories to kick off a work week.That's an understatement.
So there you have it, folks. Aliens are real, according to a nonagenarian man who at one point had access to highly classified information during the height of the Cold War.Oh. There's another one.
Are there extraterrestrials? I don't know. I'm enough of a fan of sci-fi to wonder. I note that no terrestrial based religious system, including the bible, claims that there is not. They also don't tend to address the issue, Ron Hubbard et el excluded of course. If there are aliens it would pose religious questions but not necessarily be a problem.
The bible does clearly teach that there are extra dimensional beings. This is true of other religions as well. Are these creatures what they are calling aliens? This brings up another question: Why would creatures smart enough to travel across the galaxy want to bother with us? From a religious/biblical perspective we get an answer. Some inter dimensional creatures are benevolent and some are malevolent. If this perspective is correct, how do we know which type of aliens the Canadian government is doing business with?
