The Bear's last was really two articles crammed into one long one. For the Bear's pretensions, this is a humbling reminder that he is an amateur at this, after all.

The Bear believes he will do two short articles. One will be on the difference between real science and the scientism that so often opposes religion these days.

The other will discuss the theological implications of the Pope's adoption of evolution, and why the laid-back: shrug, the Church has always accepted evolution doesn't quite cover the story.

So if you made it through the long one, you've got a bit more of the same coming. If you didn't, you can look forward to a couple of tightly-edited pieces.

As Chesterton said of amateurs: if a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.


  1. Sorry for derailing the science thread with my tangential musings about the pope's intellectual peculiarities. I look forward to the do-over!

    1. Not at all; it was invited comment and your musings are always value-added.


Your comment will likely be posted after the Bear snuffles it. Please, no anonymous posts.
