Vatican to retreat further into Dark Ages

by Feòrag

Vatican City: Rumours suggest that the Pope wishes to firmly demonstrate that the Roman Catholic Church should not be taken seriously in the 21st century by endorsing pseudoscience.

There have been growing signs the Pope is considering aligning his church more closely with the theory of intelligent design taught in some US states.

It should be pointed out that Intelligent Design is not a theory, as its principal idea, that there is a creator, is not able to be falsified though empirical observation or experiment. Nor can Intelligent Design be used to predict future similar observations. As it cannot be tested, it's not even an hypothesis. No doubt they will also be endorsing astrology in future, as a valid alternative to godless astrophysics.

Pope prepares to embrace theory of intelligent design The Guardian, 28th August 2006.
