    Who believes in the pope anymore?

    Not me. I think he is just a figment of some demented imagination.

    Which Pope?

    In April 1993 in his address to the Pontifical Biblical Commission, Pope John Paul II acquitted Galileo for his deemed heretical belief that the Earth goes around the Sun, explaining that “the theologian must keep informed about the results achieved by the natural sciences.”

    Three years later, in his October 1996 address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, this same Pope averred that Darwin was right because the theory of evolution is “more than a hypothesis,” and assured believers that it is possible to be both a Christian and an evolutionist because “truth cannot contradict truth.”
