In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus SanctiWHAT IF THERE ARE RATIONAL "PEOPLE" ON OTHER PLANETS, IN OTHER STAR SYSTEMS? ARE THEY SAVED, ABLE TO ATTAIN HEAVEN? Hello and welcome to Episode Twenty-eight of "Sunday Scriber." Lately I've been organizing my book collection. It's an ongoing process of deciding which books to get rid of and which ones to save. Today I was reading from "Christ Among Us: A Modern Presentation of the Catholic Faith." Third Revised Edition, Anthony Wilhelm. This book, from which the opening question is derived, was a gift to me from a lovely young woman whom I shared many years with. Both Margaret and I had been baptized at the same parish, and for all our discussions about Catholicism, we never discussed missionary work for rational "people" in other star systems. But today, through the grace of God, I will transcribe the answer to that most fascinating question: Are they saved, able to attain heaven? ***According to the text, which is based on the doctrine of God as revealed in the Bible: "There are many possibilities: they might be in an original innocence; they might be as yet unredeemed; they might also have been redeemed by Christ. God could have taken on other created natures besides our own. The possibilities are limitless. God can bring his creatures to happiness with himself in an infinite number of ways. What we do know is that he himself has come and brought us to himself forever."

Do you personally know anybody (earthbound or celestial) who was admitted to Heaven, or for that matter, denied admission?

|You personally knew Satan?|
This is my real-time novel, "Idealism in Tacoma," which will attempt to sort out the virtual new order I discovered in local blogs and in local 'hoods. I welcome you to join me as I press on in search of answers to the ongoing question: "Is it new?"
NEW! for 2011:
"QUANTUM FOAM," the second real-time novel by Mofo from the Hood, is happening now!
"For whatever mysterious reason, I must act beyond the role of spectator. Something beyond a portable history must be explored.
Therefore in order for me to define the concepts and categories of realities beyond the realm of my real-time novel "Idealism in Tacoma," a wholly other discourse must take form.
Ladies and whatever, let us go forth into the unknown dimension of imagination. I hereby offer you my all new materialist inspired "out of nothing" real-time novel: 'QUANTUM FOAM'."

*MFTH was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington USA. As a lifelong resident, uninspired by money, power, or fame, he eventually resorted to reading internet blogs, sometimes at the public library. In May, 2008, during the Great Recession, he started "Mofo from the Hood's Blog" on FeedTacoma.com, because it was free. If this blog ever helps him to attain money, power, and fame, he will probably stay in Tacoma.
