    Because I'd get a thousand hugs
    From ten thousand lightning bugs
    As they tried to teach me how to dance
    A foxtrot above my head
    A sockhop beneath my bed
    A disco ball is just hanging by a thread

    I'd like to make myself believe
    That planet Earth turns slowly
    It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
    Because everything is never as it seems

    Holy crap, page 400 on 25 ppp?! It seems like only yesterday this thread was sparkly new, and now we're already approaching Hooper's 7.

    So, like, it's so awesome we don't get hangovers, or do we have to give up drinking? 'Cause the latter isn't happening.:p

    So I'm on Hulu watching the V remake, and I'm only about ten minutes in, and I'm already astounded at the fact that the show managed to just decide it wasn't worth it to research the Vatican's position on aliens.

    The Vatican has a position on aliens?

    Essentially the position is that, as we cannot put limits on God's creativity, they should and would be considered God's creatures and our brothers and sisters in the universe.

    The show states this, but acts like the Vatican made it up in response to the visitors arriving, and I actually think it's a position that's been held for ages. Incidentally, the US government actually has a protocol written up should we encounter extraterrestrial life.

    Right, not necessarily, because Christianity is based on Earth, on human history and human nature.

    Well, it's not like Catholicism in particular and Christianity in general don't seem to reinvent themselves when something new comes along to adopt into the religion. The Gospel of John itself was seen as a heretical text until the Catholic Church adopted it when it assembled the more-or-less current bible at the Council of Nicaea under Emperor Constantine.

    Although perhaps the Church ought to be looking at more pressing issues like stopping its churchmen from abusing little boys and girls. I know their userbase is crumbling, but I didn't think it was so bad they're looking to outer space for converts. (rant, rant)

    *WARNING, POTENTIALLY OFFENSIVE STATEMENT FOLLOWS*

    [hl=black]But abusing people is what the [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_inquisition]Catholic Church does best![/link][/hl]

    In somewhat less offensive news, apparently [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rf7glIZgEqg]Carpathian Forest covers Venom quite nicely[/link]. </Metalhead>

    Last but not least... 9.

    I mean, we can have that conversation, but I think the Church, like any big governing body, has a lot of what-if policies in place for weird stuff while it's tending to its own pressing issues. Like I said, the US government asked some people to write up a protocol for alien encounters back in the 60's.

    But yeah...it'd just have been kind of nice to see that referenced.

    Speaking of end of the world scenarios, I'm enjoying the UK's Survivors series. It's The Stand ... but it's British, and it's actually rather compelling watching.
