Continued support of the Catholic church is shocking in light of the sex abuse that is rampant and all the cover ups. Yet people still cling to their beliefs and say that the priests were tempted or however else they justify rape and/or sex abuse. If you don't believe me here is just a short list of posts that bloggers I follow have reported on the criminal organisation that is the Catholic Church.
Now I want to give another reason why it is absolutely idiotic to be part of the Catholic church. But first lets get a few definitions out of the way.
Pope: The successor to Peter and the leader of the Catholic Church.
Papal infallibility: Is a dogma of the Catholic Church which states that, in virtue of the promise of Jesus to Peter, the Pope is preserved from the possibility of error.
Infallible: Not capable of being wrong or making mistakes.
Keep this in mind and we continue with this post. Actually to help out here is a picture of someone who is infallible.
If this is true then why have to separate popes predicted the end of the world? That is right, there are at least two Popes that we know off that have made these crazy assertions about the world ending. So how is the world still around when an infallible person (sorry 2 people) have made these predictions?
Here are the predictions:
Pope Sylvester II predicted the end of the world in 1000 AD.
Pope Innocent III predicted the world would end 666 years after the rise of Islam. Islam started in about 620 AD, that means the world should have ended in about 1286 AD.
So guess the Catholic church is just as ridiculous as those other end of the world religions which never come true. Or if the Pope is Gods voice on earth, God is wrong.
