NASA is hiring priests to answer questions about humans, aliens, and life on other planets

NASA has hired a British priest to aid in human understanding of extraterrestrials. 

Reverend Doctor Andrew Davidson, a priest and theologian at the University of Cambridge, is one of 24 theologians to take part in the NASA program. 

According to Republic World, the Center for Technological Inquiry at Princeton described the program as “bridges of understanding by convening theologians, scientists, scholars, and policymakers to think together – and inform public thinking – on global concerns.” The goal of the program is to answer questions about humans, aliens, and life in other places.

Davison discussed that religion would be important for humanity in confirming life elsewhere. “Because of that, it features as part of NASA’s ongoing aim to support work on ‘the societal implications of astrobiology,’ working with various partner organizations, including the Centre of Theological Inquiry at Princeton,” he said.

The priest will be publishing a book titled ‘Astrobiology and Christin Doctrine’ which will outline these ideas.

Carl Pilcher, former head of NASA’s Astrobiology Institute, explained the theologians could bridge the gap between science and religion. It is likely that humans will come in contact with extraterrestrial life, as there are over 100 billion galaxies in the universe.

I was born and raised in Omaha, NE before moving to Sioux Falls, SD to attend college at Augustana University. This past May I graduated from Augustana with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Biology with an emphasis in Allied Health. I first discovered FBA through my involvement with Turning Point USA where I worked as a Campus Coordinator in college. I have a passion for politics and activism, and was drawn to FBA’s dedication to spreading the truth. Unbiased news is rare in today’s society, so I wanted to be a part of FBA’s mission to change that.
