    So can we assume that the Church has already baptized the aliens which the Science Channel claims the Vatican is hiding from the world?

      That is a totally safe bet.

    • jaybird1951

      Could one say that they constitute an “underground church?”

      • ImTim

        Maybe an “oversky” church, instead.

    • Rebecca Fuentes

      Well why wouldn’t they?

    • Alma Peregrina

      Why else would they be hiding them?

    Methinks that Argentinians are reading totally different science fiction novels about alien abduction than Americans do.

    Mark, I’m assuming you’ve read Mary Doria Russell’s The Sparrow and Children of God?

    • Silly Interloper

      Demented stuff, as I recall.

      • Varenius

        “Demented”? I’d say they weren’t especially good SF, nor particularly insightful, but I can’t recall anything objectionable/twisted/questionable in them.

    • chezami

      Nope. Though I did read an interview with her about the former. Soooo… is there any subject, serious or whimsical, in which you don’t perpetually seek to land a punch on the Catholic Church? Talking with you is like trying to have a beer with somebody who is circling you like a mixed martial artist, endlessly looking for a way to kick you in the kidneys. It was an odd remark by the pope and Eifelheim was a fun book. LIghten up. Not every single conversation has to conclude with Jem getting another one of her shivs in the ribs of the Church.

        You like science fiction, they’re books in which Jesuits make contact with aliens, where, in a rather respectful and thoughtful way, issues like faith are discussed.

        I’m not trying to kick you in the kidneys, I’m saying there’s a book you might like, and it has a sequel. I thought you’d probably have read them. Give them a go, the worst case scenario is that you don’t like them but you’ll find nice and chewy stuff to dislike.
