Thanks, Cass.
Well, the Vatican flapdoodles as interpreters of 
That's like asking Monica Lewinsky about higher 
The SJ were founded to destroy "pagan" Germany.
Pope Pius including Masonic Lodges in London 
damned publicly German "paganism" and announced 
their plan of genozide.
Two world wars were led in the name of 
Christianity to destroy "neo-paganism" in Germany.
One American newspaper reported that the USA had 
to enter WWI because too much German scholars 
became interested in Buddhism.
(There come more and more linguistic facts to 
light, which proof that the religion of the 
ancient Germans was indeed Buddhism).

  Creationism dismissed as 'a kind of paganism' by 
Vatican's astronomer  IAN JOHNSTON

  BELIEVING that God created the universe in six 
days is a form of superstitious paganism, the 
Vatican astronomer Guy Consolmagno claimed 

  Brother Consolmagno, who works in a Vatican 
observatory in Arizona and as curator of the 
Vatican meteorite collection in Italy, said a 
"destructive myth" had developed in modern society 
that religion and science were competing 

  He described creationism, whose supporters want 
it taught in schools alongside evolution, as a 
"kind of paganism" because it harked back to the 
days of "nature gods" who were responsible for 
natural events.

  Brother Consolmagno argued that the Christian 
God was a supernatural one, a belief that had led 
the clergy in the past to become involved in 
science to seek natural reasons for phenomena such 
as thunder and lightning, which had been 
previously attributed to vengeful gods. "Knowledge 
is dangerous, but so is ignorance. That's why 
science and religion need to talk to each other," 
he said.

  "Religion needs science to keep it away from 
superstition and keep it close to reality, to 
protect it from creationism, which at the end of 
the day is a kind of paganism - it's turning God 
into a nature god. And science needs religion in 
order to have a conscience, to know that, just 
because something is possible, it may not be a 
good thing to do."

  Brother Consolmagno, who was due to give a 
speech at the Glasgow Science Centre last night, 
entitled "Why the Pope has an Astronomer", said 
the idea of papal infallibility had been a "PR 
disaster". What it actually meant was that, on 
matters of faith, followers should accept 
"somebody has got to be the boss, the final 

  "It's not like he has a magic power, that God 
whispers the truth in his ear," he said.
