Breaking: God is Not a Wizard

It was a good run, wasn’t it?


Pope Francis recently said that, regarding the Big Bang, there’s no conflict behind that concept and faith in God. He went on to say “when we read about creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so.” That is, God set everything in motion but he doesn’t lob miracles left and right when he feels like it.

Francis’ “being nice to gays, divorcees and cohabiters” talk is mere babble next to this Jesuitical, Teilhardian self-evolving-cosmos-as-living-Host stuff.

Apocalyptics of all sorts: savor this moment, with more to come, no doubt. Mere anarchy may soon be loosed upon the world!
