I'm going to have to defend Rome here.

They really got their butts beat on that whole rejection of heliocentricity thing. So, since then, they have been just a bit more balanced and standoffish from attempts to force science into their image.

It is the fundamentalists these days who are claiming that dinosaurs roamed concurrent with people, there is no such thing as evolution and global warming results from cow flattulance and the like.

Fair enough. But you might want to let "Cleavon and the Crazy Catholics of Topix" in on that advancement.

That Russian meteor caught on video by dozens of people sure ought to cause those fundies to shake a little.

Now if it had only landed in San Francisco or Key West, Tippy could have had some good ammunition for years.

Poor Tippy.

Obviously you're unaware of history:

The science of astronomy owes a great deal to the Church. The subject was one of the original seven subjects taught at the medieval universities founded by the Church. Polish cleric Nicolaus Copernicus’ heliocentric hypothesis shaped how we see the universe. His findings formed the basis of the Gregorian calendar. Direct support for astronomy goes back to 1582, when Pope Gregory XIII asked Jesuit mathematician Christopher Clavius to help reform the calendar.

The Church-supported stargazing that began in the 1500s has continued to the present day, not only in Rome, but also in the United States.

The Vatican Observatory, headquartered at the pope’s summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, is one of the world’s oldest astronomical research institutions. There’s also a research branch at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Its astronomers have recorded more than 500,000 star positions.“The Vatican Observatory has certainly had an active collaborative relationship with NASA and many scientists who are supported by NASA,” said Brother Guy Consolmagno, curator of the Vatican meteorite collection.“This can range from using our telescopes to support NASA missions by, for example, observing faint objects that are the target or possible target of spacecraft missions, or observing one-of-a-kind events like transits and occultations [when a smaller astronomical body passes behind a larger astronomical body] that can only be seen from certain parts of the world, to making telescope time available at the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope [located at Mt. Graham International Observatory in Arizona] to scientists who are supported by NASA grants, working at NASA centers, or working on NASA-supported projects.”

Brother Consolmagno said many scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center are supported through grants from the physics department of The Catholic University of America.

The Vatican’s meteorite collection is one of the Church’s treasures. Originally, the collection had about 1,000 samples that were donated by various people over 100 years ago. The collection now has about 1,150 pieces of more than 500 different meteorites.

“The samples are being well put to use with exchanges and interactions with others who study meteorites,” said Father Christopher Corbally, vice director of the Vatican Observatory Research Group.“Scientists in Britain, France, Italy and the U.S. have studied them, and they have contributed much to our understanding of how planets were built up out of the material that was floating around the solar system.”

Anyone even vaguely aware of the Tunguska Event in 1908 isn't surprised or mystified by today's incident at all. It's also common knowledge that something of today's magnitude occurs every year or two but goes unreported because they occur in remote locations.

the wacko group is YOU and your Mutt Pack.

Get it?

reason nobody understood your question posed, is they are scratching their head in wonder if Topix switched the names of the poster around.

everyone knows you are the top dog in the mutt pack. Typically such dogs have a 8 year life span.

We are counting the days.
