So first the Genesis account had to be taken literally, else you were killed off and prosecuted by the church. After a while, they accepted evolution (the Catholic church at least) because they realized the literal interpretation is complete and utter nonsense. But of course they still claimed god created life. Essentially, they moved the goal post once proven wrong...
And now the pope is doing it again by filling a gap in knowledge (nobody knows what was before the first bang or what caused it) with magic...aka god.
Typical god of the gaps argument...and obviously nonsense

This statement is beyond laughable for my standards. Now he's saying "god" caused the big bang? How many more discoveries will it take until theists finally realize that there is absolutely NO evidence for gods? Do they not realize the problem of infinite regression? How can a deity exist infinitely into the past (alpha, beginning, always was, etc.)? The "creator" requires a creator for himself, which in turn requires his creator to also have a creator and so on, thus causing infinite regression. The pope needs to prove it.

Not to believe in something, no; you can believe whatever you want.
Unless there's evidence to back it up though it will not be regarded as fact by the vast majorityedit on 6/1/2011 by Griffo because: (no reason given)

i gotta disagree, i thought universe was great, sg-1 was the best, and Atlantis was good. Atlantis was my least favorite of the 3. Atlantis just seemed like they were trying to imitate sg-1 too much. Universe was a newish concept.
