In a statement before the Pontifical Academy of Sciences on October 27, Pope Francis I endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life – which he refers to as “beings of the universe” – has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” He explained how the Catholic Church views the Big Bang and evolution as scientific processes underpinned by “the plan of the creator.” Pope Francis has officially moved the Catholic Church away from the idea of “God the creator” as a magician or demiurge creating the universe in an act of omnipotence over six days, to a more scientific view that God works mysteriously behind the scenes planning the evolution of life on Earth and the Universe. The Pope’s statement reveals his view that intelligent extraterrestrial life has evolved in a manner that is consistent with “the plan of the creator,” thereby making it possible for extraterrestrials to act in ways that further this plan. The Pope’s statement is a surprising endorsement of the view that the activities of intelligent extraterrestrial life in the universe can be part of a universal plan by “God the creator”. Consequently, Pope Francis’s statement is preparing the Catholic world that extraterrestrial life visiting our world in UFOs may be part of “the plan of the creator.”
Pope Francis began his remarkable statement by first dismissing the simplistic idea behind creationism where God created the universe in six days and nights:
When we read in Genesis the account of Creation, we risk imagining God as a magician, with a wand able to make everything. But it is not so.
He instead endorsed the more evolutionary friendly view that “God the creator” mysteriously works through nature:
God and Christ walk with us and are also present in nature… the scientist must be motivated by the confidence that nature hides, in her evolutionary mechanisms, potentialities for intelligence and freedom to discover and realize, to achieve the development that is in the plan of the creator.
The Pope went on to discuss the evolution of intelligent extraterrestrial life which he referred to as “beings of the universe”:
He created beings and allowed them to develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one, so that they were able to develop and to arrive and their fullness of being. He gave autonomy to the beings of the universe at the same time at which he assured them of his continuous presence, giving being to every reality. And so creation continued for centuries and centuries, millennia and millennia, until it became which we know today, precisely because God is not a demiurge or a magician, but the creator who gives being to all things.
The Pope’s statement explicitly endorses the view that intelligent extraterrestrial life may have evolved on many different worlds, and achieved a “fullness of being” and “autonomy” that makes them vital parts of “the plan of the creator.” This suggests that the activities of intelligent extraterrestrial life throughout the universe can be supported by the Catholic Church as consistent with the plan of “God the creator.”

He created beings and allowed them to develop according to the internal laws that He gave to each one, so that they were able to develop and to arrive and their fullness of being. He gave autonomy to the beings of the Universe at the same time at which he assured them of his continuous presence, giving being to every reality....
He continued, “With regard to man, instead, there is a change and something new. When, on the sixth day of the account in Genesis, man is created, God gives the human being another autonomy, an autonomy that is different to that of nature, which is freedom. And he tells man to name everything and to go ahead through history. This makes him responsible for creation, so that he might dominate it in order to develop it until the end of time. Therefore the scientist, and above all the Christian scientist, must adopt the approach of posing questions regarding the future of humanity and of the earth, and, of being free and responsible, helping to prepare it and preserve it, to eliminate risks to the environment of both a natural and human nature. But, at the same time, the scientist must be motivated by the confidence that nature hides, in her evolutionary mechanisms, potentialities for intelligence and freedom to discover and realise, to achieve the development that is in the plan of the Creator. So, while limited, the action of humanity is part of God's power and is able to build a world suited to his dual corporal and spiritual life; to build a human world for all human beings and not for a group or a class of privileged persons. This hope and trust in God, the Creator of nature, and in the capacity of the human spirit can offer the researcher a new energy and profound serenity. But it is also true that the action of humanity – when freedom becomes autonomy – which is not freedom, but autonomy – destroys creation and man takes the place of the Creator. And this is the grave sin against God the Creator”, he concluded.
Intergalactic and Universal Ascended Life
The community of Intergalactic and Universal Ascended Life is now opening several new ascended dimensions which are able to greatly increase the speed of planetary ascension and its integration with ascended extra-terrestrial life and other ascended dimensions which are the planet's associated realms of being.
This development is the final ascension stage for the unifying of all planetary life.
It is also the beginning of a very much wider level of ascended life and civilization for this Avatar Planetary/Universal Creation.
And the incoming forces of creation and civilization are always predominating in their ascension and creation powers of life and being to produce the required results of destiny.
Universal Ascended Life
The Universal Ascended Life of this planet is now becoming functional and increasingly active to rapidly enhance all life throughout the planet and make possible the creation of Planetary Universal Civilization which is already a predetermined planetary destiny for the near future.
