Well, you heard it guys. I guess the physicists can stop researching this one anymore. The great one has spoken and shared his all-knowing wisdom with all of us.
Well, I guess Stephen Hawking can hang up his gloves now and go golfing.

You should be PUNished

Frankly my dear, I don't give a clam

On a cruise ship I worked on one contract, we had salmon on the menu every Tuesday- The puns started with us musicians then, spread to everyone...
Salmon Chanted Evening
Like salmon in love
Salmon to watch over me
I tried smoked salmon once....I couldn't keep it lit...

Don't even get me started on veal...

I veal like making love
Veals like the first time
I don't think Big Bang cosmology really needs a papal thumbs up. Rather it's the other way around. By accepting science (that can be reconciled with dogma) the Catholic Church, having thoroughly tested the opposite tactic first, hopes to secure it's claim on special access to knowledge of the truth and meaning of it all toward the future.
Ideally a random church authority shouldn't be ridiculed when they accept science, nor should they receive special praise for the exceptional case when they do something right. Ideally what they say should be no more relevant than any other layperson's view.
Yeah, it seems to me to go like this:
"No, you are wrong"
"I said, you are wrong"
"No, shut up, you are wrong!"
"We knew it was true all along! I'm serial, guys!"
I can't recall how the saying goes, but a broken clock is right twice a day.
The pope has stumbled across ascientfic debate. But he's far, far, far, far from redeeming himself i'm afraid!
Protestantism - always 50 years behind the times.
Catholicism - 100 years.
Born-Again Christians - 200 years.
Islam - 300 years.
Don't worry, they're catching up. Just takes a while. :)
