He really does have some balls doesn't he? Joseph Ratzinger aka Pope Benedict.
He said in a speech today "In an age when scientific developments attract and seduce with the possibilities they offer, it's more important than ever to educate our contemporaries' consciences so that science does not become the criteria for goodness."
Science is "seductive". Seductive means something that lures you towards sin.
"Educate our contemporaries consciences". This from the leader of the cathoolic church.
"Science does not become the criteria for goodness." And he is offering what, as the criteria for goodness?
He also said "no science can say who man is, where he comes from or where he is going". Great. So, because science doesn't have the answers to the meaning of life, therefore the church does?
"Man is not the fruit of chance or a bundle of convergences, determinisms or physical and chemical reactions" He should team up with Ray Comfort. He uses bigger words than Ray does but it's the same misunderstanding of human origin and the same misrepresentations of scinetific theories.
This is a m an who is apposed to stem cell research, abortion, and thinks that magic words will be more magic if they are said in Latin.
