No one would notice LOL. The medical examiner would say died of natural causes. That is if they did an autopsy; probably would not bother. God knows this so he has let you slide. I would miss your post!
As do all others, you make excuses for your image of a god.

I mocked all the gods and goddesses ... I tested them ... and they did not care to prove to the people of the world that any of them would and could put "mockers" to death if they so choose.

Religion is bunk!

One can only scratch the surface concerning the broad writings of the saints....And that may be the most difficult aspect, in narrowing down the choices of reading material.
I have gotten into the habit of trying to read from different ages, times, to give a more dynamic view of things.
I think the age we live in offers such a narrow view of things, that it carries over into beliefs, such as you mention, the view of the RCC as being "one-dimensional". Little do people know....
Good idea, deliberately reading from different ages. But I think we tend to do that anyway. A certain saint will come into the forefront and I'll look them up, check out any writings, book reviews, etc. That often throws a lot of the more contemporary saints into the mix, which can be very helpful. There are so many fantastic contemporary (or nearly so) holy men and women that have lived exactly what we've been praying in the Office. Talk about being humbled!!

I agree, we have gotten narrow. Good word!

(And if I don't stop misspelling "predominantly"....a long with several other words....)

Do you believe that the god in that movie is trying to tell other people that they should all belong to your specific Christian religion so they can spend eternity with a Jew???

There is only one Baltimore Catechism, Rose, and it says that God is our Creator. There have been several editions of the Catechism over the many years of The Church's 2,000 year old history starting with the Didache ca. 70 A.D.
The Catechism today, as the Catechism from 55 years ago, states that God is our Creator. There have been no changes in our teachings. Doctrine cannot be changed. You should have learned that first and foremost. This is what we believe today and have always believed:
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
(I've never heard of an internet web site having an Imprimatur, lol. Are you sure you heard right?) Evolution when properly understood within the context of Christian teaching is not at odds with Scripture. All creation comes from God. I've not read anything to the contrary so far.
Man is a creature composed of body and soul and made in the image and likeness,of God

No evolving out of other creatures,is mentioned at all

<quoted text>I tend to agree with you on this. From where I sit the RCC doesn't really like people reading the Bible and coming to their own conclusions.
Many Protestant churches have the same flaw.
For mew it's the height of human vanity for any group to claim they know what God wants and what the Bible really means.
That is why I now shun most churches. I like attending them. But my spiritual life is between me and God. No one else.
But my guess is ... you believe that your interpretation of what the bible means to you is what it should mean to others, if only they were as wise as you.

Home mental digestion of those words is based on the same arrogance as is the arrogance of those that congregate in groups, and my guess is you are certain that you will be saved and others will spend eternity in hell.

It most always ends up that the story told favors the believer.

So only catholics have the editors pen when it comes to the bible. While protestants are not allowed to say what they think the bible means. Seems fair to me; but God does not ask me. He does not even talk to me.
Protestant "say what they think" all of the time. That is the basis of their bible only (self interpretation) 42,000 (contradicting denominations) as the editorialize EVERY BIBLE VERSE to their own demise and destruction!........ That is ALL they do!! Verbalize, opinionize and establish their own individual "dogma" of bible only Protestantism..........And then they "throw out" a bunch of (Protestant "loaded") questions regarding Salvation, baptism, etc. EACH ONE OF THEM claiming to possess the truth of what the bible "says", when in fact, what they believe is nothing more than a hodge-podge of "anti-catholic heretical opinionated teaching!!!
