MANILA, Philippines - Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago on Wednesday gave a glimpse into her own religious beliefs, saying that she believes in a higher intelligence.
"We are just human. We are one of many lifeforms in the universe. We don't even know our relationship with lifeforms on other planets, whether we are retarded or advanced. But still you have to sort it our for yourself that it cannot be possible that we exist only for ourselves, that we are confined only to the material demands of our planet," she said in an i nterview on ANC's "Headstart."
"There must be a higher intelligence. Maybe it started the Big Bang and that's how the unverse came into being. Plus you must remember there is now not only 1 universe but many universes. There are multiverses now, according to our astronomy."
"We have to contend with other factors higher than ourselves. That is what some people call God."
