Comment 21 by harlow :

The pope cannot, honestly, claim to be at 1. He demostrates this every time he gets in one of his bullet proof popemobiles.

Not necessarily. Religious people take a number of approaches to this question. They will argue that God's way of protecting the Pope is to give humans the reason and intelligence to make bullet proofing. They will also argue that not using the bullet proofing God has provided by giving us reason and intelligence is an insult to God akin to jumping off a cliff shouting "save me God".
