so is he suggesting that there are records of Aliens in the Pope's private library ?

or is he just refering to Aliens from other countries ?

The Bible tells us what we need to know for our spiritual health and well-being. It does not, and never intended to, tell us how to split the atom or cure cancer.
What about "Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenence"?

it is many years since I last read The Bible, think when I have finished the George RR Martin I am into at the moment that will be the next one I pick up.

There are many people trying to prove the statements within the Good Book with regard to people, places and battles and many have been proven.
The problem is there are very few written records around, in stone or other materials, and it is about 4000BC.
And just because there is no extant written record doesn't mean it didnt happen, just there is no written record.

So many ancient documents were lost in the fire of the Library of Alexandria that could perhaps answer many questions - but too late, all gone.

There is not much that can be proven. But if one claims something extraordinary, the least one ought to do is to show the likelyhood of it.

Proof that god is not omnipotent : he cannot make a stone that is too heavy for him to lift .
