Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial? Summary Á 8 review Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial? Witty and thought provoking two Vatican astronomers shed provocative light on some of the strange places where religion and science meet “Imagine if a Martian showed up all big ears and big nose like a child’s drawing and he asked to be baptized How would you react” – Pope Francis May 2014 Pope Francis posed that uestion – without insisting on an answer – to provoke deeper. Clever funny creative original necessary work The two authors explore a variety of uestions at the crossroads of faith and reason The dialogue format makes the book extremely readable and fast I loved the analogy with a pointillist painting if you look at reality only through the lense of science you might as well look at the painting as a collection of dots If you look at it through the lense of religion you can see the meaning of the painting and the bigger picture Both views can be true without contradicting each other like science and faith If one is true it doesn t mean the other one is false
