Regarding the Vatican Astronomy Conference (via):

Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, a member of Father Funes's 13-strong team, explains that the Church has maintained its interest because science holds no fears for the faithful.

He told the BBC: "This is our way of seeing how God created the universe and they want to make as strong a statement as possible that truth doesn't contradict truth; that if you have faith, then you're never going to be afraid of what science is going to come up with."

Mm. I'm always conflicted how I feel about them. They're some of the strongest on the nature of truth, but they have all the authoritarian and hierarchical nonsense in double measure.

The Jesuits are God's ninjas!

(Or at least they used to be.)

Mysterious, dedicated, dressed in black, occasionally venturing out of the shadows to dissect an enemy with a razor-edged argument, and then vanishing as quietly as they came!

That's a good quote that is, I like that one.

"Truth doesn't contradict truth."
