    I agree. I was introduced to the theory of evolution in Catholic grade school science education back in the '60s. My parents had an interest in human evolution that they passed on to me, and I remember doing some kind of report on it back then. No problems.

    The Catholics needed this Pope 30 years ago.

    Yup. Lots of misinformation about Catholics (and misinformed Catholics) out there. Pope Francis is a great messenger.

    Interesting thread.
    I'm Jewish, so the hell thing isn't my bag

    But I'd be lying if I didn't say that there have been times in my life when I've been convinced that hell is other people.
    Or, to be precise - what people do to other people.
    There's a cheerful thought..

    I thought Jewish people called hell Tartaroo. I lived in New York City and met all kinds of Orthodox Jewish people. One of them said they believe in a version of an underworld and I think she called it Tartaroo.

    I see "what people do to other people" every day that I go to work. I suppose I could STOP seeing it if I moved to a small town or something, not that I know how often raging violence occurs in those places but it's not like when I was working in Emergency Medicine in New York City and in one of the solid "middle class" neighborhoods a shooting occurred by a man who crashed his car while on his way to a mass murder so he changed his location on the spot and shot the first firefighter who arrived on-scene to treat his injuries. He followed up this spectacular demonstration of gratitude by shooting at police when they arrived and becoming neutralized by them because of it. "Neutralized" being the hoity-toity $50 word they use when they mean "shot to death by police."
