Another actual proud moment in religious thought and action!

Official Vatican Astronomer derides creationism as "a kind of paganism". Will be burned at the stake later this week.

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

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 ideologies.

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.

He also said the idea of papal infallibility had been a "PR disaster".

I am strangely fascinated by the God-with-Vagina illustration. Did you come with that yourself? If so, kudos to you.
