evolution and the fossilisation of god...

old fossil...

The new pope is a cunning thieving idiot. Actually he may be a clever man but that does not excuse his latest elevated confused ramblings delivered in order to catch more flies... No, dear Benedict, we don't believe that god is a magician who created the world with a magic wand in seven days... And yes, the big bang contradicts the divine act of creation, despite your uttering to scientists, to the contrary.

To claim that the evolution theory and the dogma of creation are compatible or are both "right" is an insult to clear minded people. As an atheist, I mean it and I feel insulted.

The dragon's flame lights up the night as it pours to the ground

Five hundred of our warriors to Paradise have gone

While we toil upon the earth till we can follow on

more lies more lies more lies more lies

more lies

Australia briefly became an independent state during the Whitlam years, 1972-75. An American commentator wrote that no country had "reversed its posture in international affairs so totally without going through a domestic revolution". Whitlam ended his nation's colonial servility. He abolished Royal patronage, moved Australia towards the Non-Aligned Movement, supported "zones of peace" and opposed nuclear weapons testing.
