I'm surprised that no-one has mentioned how insulting his position is. To assert that we understand nothing of god because we haven't studies ancient theological discourses hard enough smacks to me of the rantings of insipid priests trying to hold on to power.

Let's face it, you can have a PhD in Theology, but all you actually have is a collection of other (usually dead) people's opinions. Opinions, not facts.

And yet, a four year old grasping the concept of Newton's Laws of Motion by watching a bouncing ball has surpassed them in a moment. That's science that is. It's observable everywhere.

Actually, I'm surprised the rcc hasn't tried to go back to a latin mass, just to obscure the idiocy further.
