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.

Perhaps he should clam up on matters of science, and stick to speaking on matters of the sole.

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!"

The only reason the pope is giving science a "thumbs-up" now is because in the end, science will rule out religion as we know it.  Religion will adapt so that it can position itself as "verified" by science.  He's not 'accepting' the findings of science, so much as he has no choice, because he knows that religious-theism will never 'defeat' actual science.
Plus, by making this announcement the Pope can distract some of the media attention away from the Church's criminal activities. It's half the reason any announcement is made by the Catholic Church lately.

 

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!

wow, I love this saying.  Never heard it before.
