Diana: When pressed for an answer from the people around us at that dinner? Here is my response: it is a complete mystery; unknowable. As to providing a serious answer? It doesn't seem to bother Fr. Joe or me that creation takes many forms. What is going to be really interesting is having philosophical and theological discussions with whatever other intelligent manifestations of life exist. And, yeah, there are people who are able to have intelligent discussions with other types of life right here on earth. An example: St. Francis of Assisi. I am sure there many other humans who possess the talent to interact with non-human intelligences. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
