Here is Pope Benedict XVI, the person that is the replacment for Jesus on Earth, saying that evolution has nothing to do with reality. Apparently he thinks that human beings were always the same, and will always be the same.
Funny thing. To me it looks like a younger generation is taller (what the hell do they put in the food these days?), it also seems that young girls turn to young women sooner than before, and we are not talking about thousands of years “before” but merely a couple dozen years or so ago.
The bodies that are found every now and again show a consistent difference from the current human being look, and much more than that – it makes complete sense that in 10,000 year humans will look different (maybe only slightly different) to us, but for some reason the pope thinks that is all nothing. Just like he asks his driver to be careful not to drive off the edge of the world (since it is flat, like some churches argued passionately) and that is why he asked NASA to change the whole space program since the earth is, as he believes, in the center of the world, and not a small planet circulating the sun. But that was long ago, and its almost 500 years since the church actually persecuted and killed, burned and tortured people for thinking what was right, so until someone sand strong and does not let them keep doing it they will toy with evolution a little more.
And, maybe it would be better for the 84 year old pope to try and focus his attention on Syria, where it looks like a massive oppressive massacre against the people has started today, including some fellow Syrian Christians, who can suffer greatly from the current government.
