Yes. The new papal encyclical, "Contra Constpationium, et Supergestus Viscera est Nonsancto et Foetidum" will no doubt be Benny's last, yet greatest work, and most well known Papal Bull of the century, and eagerly awaited mostly by the elderly in his church.


No shit? Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: lingering emotioanl attachment to church/religion.
yeah, I think I do have an addictive personality maybe.... my Dad was a drug addict and always in and out of jail. He died of a heroin overdose back in the fall of 2005. I have never used drugs at all. And my Mom drinks a lot.

And, no, I do NOT want to go to al-anon or those types of meetings!

Well, now I only go to church/mass once a week, but I still say a few daily prayers-out of routine/habbit and read the daily bible readings of the catholic church, but that's about it.....

RE: lingering emotioanl attachment to church/religion.
I was surprised recently to learn how many friends and acquaintances are waffling between Christianity and atheism. They have stopped attending church for various reasons and have begun to question their worshipping a fantasy. Most were indoctrinated at children but they aren't quite buying into many of the scriptures.

RE: lingering emotioanl attachment to church/religion.
Well actually I am going to see a Catholic priest this afternoon to talk over some things including doing my 5th A.A. step.
The last one I saw, a monsignor, related to my second marriage as a divorcee, with my future wife being a catholic.
Spoke to this guy over the phone re a scare relating to a family member'[/i]s addiction problem. He came across quite O.K.

Not at all convinced that atheism will rid us of rapists, peds,greed, insanity, addictions, cruelty etc from any strictly jungle based [i]spirituality..............................
