Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Dreadful... I saw the pair of them reunited the other day hawking out their ancient wares. It was sh!t in the 50s, they were sh!t in the 70s, we don't need it a 3rd time!

<quoted text>I'm not sure she contributed to the plight of the poor and sick in India. I don't think she made them sicker or poorer. Perhaps she helped them in her time or perhaps she didn't. I don't think she made them any worse off.

She was just a woman.
The problem was, that she withheld pain medication from people who desperately needed it because of her twisted religious concept that suffering was beautiful. And she diverted charity money meant for the poor and destitute, who also desperately needed it, to the Vatican, which is probably one of the biggest wastes of money on the world.

She wasn't intentionally evil. She was brainwashed evil.

She claimed to be agnostic?!

I don't read many of her posts, but I've always assumed she was Christian.

I didn't think she had the guts to state her position.

100% agree. I think she *thought* she was doing the right thing. But the regime she enforced was brutal in the extreme.

***Meet Wilma, the first reconstruction of a Neanderthal created using evidence from fossil anatomy and ancient DNA.
Neanderthals were a species of human that became extinct 28,000 years ago. The lifesize model was created to illustrate “The Last of the Neanderthals,” the cover article in the October 2008 issue of National Geographic magazine.
The article, written by Steve Hall and photographed by David Liittschwager and Joe McNally, explores what caused Neanderthals, who dominated Eurasia for more than 200,000 years, to vanish in the Ice Age, while our modern human ancestors survived.
Wilma’s skeleton was built using replicas of a pelvis and cranial anatomy from Neanderthal females combined with parts from a cast of a composite skeleton of a male from the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Calculations were made to reduce the male bone sizes to female dimensions.
Paleo-artists and scientific consultants, overseen by National Geographic magazine’s senior science editor Jamie Shreeve, used evidence of ancient DNA preserved in cannibalized bones that suggested that at least some Neanderthals would have had red hair, pale skin and possibly freckles.

I'm more likely related to Wilma seeing as I have red hair, freckles and blue eyes....

There were cases where relatives who expressed concern were turned away and hushed up. In those cases there would have been more suffering than if Teresa hadn't stuck her oar in.
