Pope Squeaky Clean and some new recruits released two “doves of peace” in the Vatican and they got attacked by a seagull and a black crow. The audience should have prayed harder.

That seagull and crow must have been in league with Satan!

Feeding time at the ZOO. LOL

When nature conjures the timely pleasant, it's a sign from God, full of religious meaning and symbolism. When nature produces the inconveniently horrific-- even upon symbols intentionally loaded with religious meaning and symbolism-- it doesn't mean anything (even if it happened last year too).

That reminds me of this quote by David Attenborough:

I often get letters, quite frequently, from people who say how they like the programmes a lot, but I never give credit to the almighty power that created nature. To which I reply and say, "Well, it's funny that the people, when they say that this is evidence of the Almighty, always quote beautiful things. They always quote orchids and hummingbirds and butterflies and roses." But I always have to think too of a little boy sitting on the banks of a river in West Africa who has a worm boring through his eyeball, turning him blind before he's five years old. And I reply and say, "Well, presumably the God you speak about created the worm as well," and now, I find that baffling to credit a merciful God with that action. And therefore it seems to me safer to show things that I know to be truth, truthful and factual, and allow people to make up their own minds about the moralities of this thing, or indeed the theology of this thing.

Bravo Reg, that is a great quote.

Nevermore, said the raven. Nevermore.

All ravens are crows, but all crows are not ravens.  That ws not a raven.

All ravens are crows, but all crows are not ravens.  That ws not a raven.

In fact, "the genus was originally described by Linnaeus in his 18th-century work Systema Naturae. The name is derived from the Latin corvus meaning "raven". So I could argue that all crows are ravens.

Of the 40 plus species of corvus that are distributed around the world, the distinction between a raven and a crow as far as common names is arbitrary.

Sir David Attenborough tells the Radio Times: "It never really occurred to me to believe in God."

A sensible man, with his 31 honorary PhDs, fellowships, orders, knighthood and other titles.
