"Those who deny this must go to the scientists and ask them. They speak very clearly," Francis said, once again showing his faith in science, which he has done on a number of occasions. "These aren't opinions pulled out of thin air. They are very clear."

As another indication of how weird the world has become because of Trump, we're looking to the Vatican to stand up for the scientists.

I am a very lapsed Catholic, but while they do tend to pick and choose, overall the Vatican has been much
more friendly to science than their equivalents in other religions have been.

Besides:  Pope Francis is a Jesuit.  They wrote the book on doctrinary pragmatism.

Yeah, I know.  But I'm not one to pass up a cheap joke opportunity.

Still, more progressive than many on this topic.

Besides me obviously being a dick. I've seen a few zombie movies where zombies had cognitive function, but what the hell, they're fictional creations.

I stand by the assertion that religious folk may lack reason and logic  to at least some degree, even if they were to be a Jesuit astrophysicists who discovers time travel and a cure for cancer on the same day. Unless, of course they are not religious, in which case I stand corrected.

Oh, they "believe in supernatural sky faeries and Jewish zombies".  They will also explain to you the many and manifold reasons your use of "supernatural sky faeries and Jewish zombies" is really bad rhetorical form, and then go into excruciating detail about how you ought to be arguing against the existence of God in a systematic fashion.  The problem is not that Jesuits believe; it's that they will school you on the proper way to not believe, and why you should feel bad for being such an uneducated version of an atheist.

Oh boy. a snarky one line comment turned into a philosophical debate. Whodda thunk it? Unpossible. ;)

LL316: Minus1Kelvin: LL316: phrawgh: Marcus Aurelius: phrawgh: If a pope were capable of reason and logic, he wouldn't be a pope.

You don't know any Jesuits, I take it.

Oh the Jesuits. The "Society of Jesus." Trot them out. Yet they still belong to an organization based on supernatural sky faeries and Jewish zombies. That's some real nice reason and logic ya got there, Lou. Be a shame if anything happened to it.

Do you also ask people if they lift and then tell them about how vegan you are?  You sound exactly like that kind of person.

He's not the one trying to convince people that leaders in magic believing cults need to be taken seriously regarding science.

He did get a chemistry degree from a secondary school, which makes his opinion regarding science a lot more relevant than most of us farkers.


Yeah...a degree is just a piece of paper. There are many with graduate degrees in science that say the Earth is 6000 years old. It's the quality of the work they do with the degree that counts.  Also, being a great chemist won't shield you from stupid beliefs.

Minus1Kelvin: Archidude: phrawgh: Marcus Aurelius: phrawgh: Are you saying they DO NOT believe in supernatural sky faeries and Jewish zombies?

No, all I'm saying is that you don't know any Jesuits.

Very well. ;)

Although I was drinking buddies with a Catholic army chaplain some years ago. I think he might have been Jesuit order but cannot recall for sure. And I sure wouldn't want to  lie or misstate any fact on Fark. That's totally unacceptable and likely against the TOS.

Did you have the courage to mock his faith and intellect to his face,  or is that something you reserve for the internet?

OH WOE IS THE POOR RELIGIOUS MAN, FOR HE IS THE TINY ANT AGAINST THE MAJORITY OF THE GODLESS.

/his cult used to set people like me on fire.


the old church would have burned all the protestants as heretics as well, so, you've got that going for  you

Yes I did. He seemed to enjoy our conversations and so did I. We continued until he PCS'd and I lost track of him over the years. He was there by his own free will.
