Fortress Amerika - Day Three! Praise Jebus!

Mr. President. We need to deploy our troops to the Vatican. The Vatican astronomer, Guy Consolmagno, recently claimed that belief in Intelligent Design is paganism.


Consolmagno called the current idea that science and religion were competing ideologies is a destructive myth. And he called Intelligent Design a worship of Nature gods.

Brother Consolmagno argued that the Christian God was a supernatural one, a belief that had led the clergy in the past to become involved in science to seek natural reasons for phenomena such as thunder and lightning, which had been previously attributed to vengeful gods. "Knowledge is dangerous, but so is ignorance. That's why science and religion need to talk to each other," he said. "Religion needs science to keep it away from superstition and keep it close to reality, to protect it from creationism, which at the end of the day is a kind of paganism - it's turning God into a nature god. And science needs religion in order to have a conscience, to know that, just because something is possible, it may not be a good thing to do."

The Vatican is harboring WMDs, Mr. President: Ideas not found in the Holy Bible!
