Astrobiologists and UFOlogists do not necessarily agree about the presence of extraterrestrial intelligence on Earth. But they do agree that intelligent life could evolve throughout the cosmos. The time will come when we will encounter such life and must face certain theological and ethical questions. Ted Peters explains the moral and religious dilemmas we will face when mankind finally openly encounters its first extraterrestrial intelligence in this interview with Regina Meredith.
Ted Peters, is a professor of systematic theology at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. He has authored, co-authored, edited, and co-edited more than two dozen books with topics ranging from sin and evil to the future of God and to points where science and religion clash and cooperate. His new venture as an author is a series of espionage thrillers with an enigmatic heroine, Leona Foxx. Ted will publish a new book--UFOs: God's Chariots?--in April 2014 with New Page Books.
