The Magnificent Eleven

UPDATED with a couple of secular stories.

The honorary woodland creatures at American Catholic (and others) are carrying welcome news! Eleven Cardinals are coming out with a book in advance of the Synod, to stop the "Protestantization of the Catholic Church."

In the context, that's good enough. Eventually, we're going to have to roll back the Protestantization of the Church. Never fear. No age lasts forever. The West is sowing the seeds of fantasy and will reap the whirlwind of reality. After that, the survivors will have learned their lesson.

Also In The News...

"Scientists say..." Okay, let the Bear stop right here and remark that whenever a news story starts off like that, you know it is going to be complete BS (Bear Scat). Here, researchers are claiming to have used adult stem cells... Stop. The Bear thought only fetal stem cells were any good, and that's how Christopher Reeve got to walk again? Anyway, researchers have created a brain, that's right a human brain. They claim it isn't conscious (and they're probably right about that). It's about the size of a pencil eraser. Make your own who-will-be-getting-the tiny-brains jokes.

Seriously, this doesn't sound remotely ethical.

Another scientist says (get ready) that we're just two years away from the first human head transplant. The Bear wonders if he could get a human head? But then, he couldn't fit a satisfying mouthful of pony (or heretic) into those tiny jaws.

Coworker extra nervous today? Impact Team -- a hacker collective -- made good on its threat to publish personal data from adultery site Ashley Madison and two allied sites. Oh, dear. All that dirty laundy flapping in cyberspace. "Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the Lord: Thus says the Lord God, Because your shame was laid bare and your nakedness uncovered in your harlotries with your lovers..." Ezk 16:35-36. During the General Judgment, everything everybody ever did is going to be on the Big iMax for all to see.

The joke's on the ones who signed up for Ashley Madison's "service." A lawsuit revealed that 90-95% of those availing themselves of this "service" were men. (Good for you ladies.) So the company used a lot of fake female profiles. Let's hope it prompts repentance in the hearts of those who were disclosed.


  1. I don't know why they think that this brain isn't conscious. This is horrifying.

  2. Maybe they'll implant the brains in those new humanoid robots that can run through the forest. What would Bear do if he encountered one of those?

  3. As to the the Protestantization of the Catholic Church---that train left the station long ago when Paul VI called in 6 Prot ministers to help create the Novus Ordo Mass.

    1. Thank you Mr. Dowd for that suggestion. and I just delight in the Bear's descriptives of BS. Now that is something I can say, even around my little grandsons.
