Oh My

 [h3]Vatican astronomer denounces Creationism as "paganism"         [/h3] The Vatican Astronomer has denounced Creationism and the idea that the universe was created in seven days as "superstition" and "paganism" at a speech at the Glasgow Science Centre. He also called Papal Infallability a "PR disaster." [blockquote]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. [/p]"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." [/p][/blockquote]  [a href="http://news.scotsman.com/international.cfm?id=674042006"]Link[/a]    
The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.

That was a great link.  There are some good articles there.
Thousands of years ago cats were worshipped. They have not forgotten.
