August 7, 1960: Other Worlds' State of Innocence
"Writing in the Aug. 12 issue of America, a weekly review edited and published by the Jesuits, Father [Daniel] Raible finds it conceivable that one or more races in space may exist in what theologians call a 'state of innocence.' ...
"Thus, writes Father Raible, it is quite possible that some space beings may not be encumbered with ills that beset mankind, such as crime, illiteracy and juvenile delinquency. He notes further that 'hospitals and asylums would be unknown to them.'"
