I think that story is generally held to be a legend:

That bits a legend, as opposed to the rest of Catholicism which is 100% factual ;)

There are pictures of the pope grovelling before the cross on TV today. I find it amusing that old men do that sort of thing to convince people to hand over money. I'm sure if the faithful stopped paying, the church would die. Wouldn't it be great if we could convince them to just stop paying money to the church?

The Pope Joan story that the church says is a legend. I also find it amusing that they will fight tooth and nail that they never made a woman a pope and that it's just a legend, when they expect people to believe that the premise of their religion is more than just a legend.

The fable about a female pope, who afterwards bore the name of Johanna (Joan), is first noticed in the middle of the thirteenth century.

Mick wrote:Against abortion, homosexual marriage and other such things, I like him. I will have to learn more about him, I wonder how he will deal with the church issues concerning the molestation and growing secularism.

I'm against the idea that God is against anything, since God has allowed everything.

Sorry, I stumbled upon this thread doing a 'who's online' search, via a bot. I hadn't realised that Mick was such an arsehole. My apologies for suggesting otherwise in earlier threads.

That's a good point (if one accepts the premise of a god in the first place).

No - that's the point of assuming something for the sake of argument. You waive criteria such as evidence as a way of enabling discussion of various scenarios.

Don't necessarily need to. A god that doesn't exist can't forbid anything.
Power doesn't corrupt, it reveals. Only when someone is free from constraints and consequences do they show their true character.

Need evidence to do that.

The point I originally made was clearly a reference to the mere supposition of God, as I was responding to Mick's post. IF a God exists, then one must wonder why numerous theists are complaining about anything being an affront to God, lest God be both judgemental and lame. Which in itself is an affront to the logical conception of 'God'.

If a God exists, then 'it' clearly doesn't give two shits about the choices 'we' make. If It did, then we would be incapable of making those choices, else that God is a lame duck.

Happy New Year.
