At last! the Catholic buggers in Rome (where they ought to be doing some thinking and homework) twig that they’re actually fighting pagans! By which I mean not Wiccans (who are generally harmless and useful and charming) but Gramsco-Marxians (who really really need and want to and like to kill people over disputes regarding fine interpretation of ideas)
As a scientist, (strictly speaking I think I’d today be called a molecular biophysicist) I have never had any difficulty in reconciling the first Book of Genesis and I. John i with what greenazis and other prostitutors of words call “the science”.
But it’s heartening to see that the Vatican’s team, however ineptly (and I don’t expect miracles) is now coming out on side.
They’d better get their act together, and fast. Pagans take no notice even of people as sharp as Richard Dawkins, in their manio-hystericalist-efforts to drag Man back to paleolithic barbarism.
The problem with pagans of course, is that they’ve got into the Governments of places which matter.
The Pagans’ god is of course totalitarian. What else can he be? He laid it all down at the start, at Year Zero, and all have to follow him no matter what, on pain of death or on pain of losing your research grant. Men, dinosaurs, fossils, stars? You name it, he did it then and he did it first. He also demands sacrifices: these are often the things we love most, such as liberty, or pretty young girls (just to rub it in….no pun intended but it’s a good one.)
The Christians’ God laid down nothing as vulgate and inviolate: in the beginning was the Word: the Word was God, and the Word was With – by which the translators must mean “created by” – ablative – God. For the Word, I substitute “order” or “Logos”. He merely created Himself. Everything else was His Thought, which must evolve later. So evolution must follow, since God exists in All Time and All Space like the rest of us. All we do is discover His Mind, slowly, at first, like now.
But in our trying to do this, Evil and Wickedness try to beset us, such as via the phantasms of “Jacqui” “Smith”, Hitler, Stalin, Gramsci, Marx, Pol Pot, “Al” Gore (who looks increasingly like Hermann Goering – go google) Ed Balls, Jo Brand, Jonathan Ross, Hugo Chavez, Saddam Hussein, Shootinputin187, that woman on the telly whose name I can’t recall, and others.
