Pope: Internet is a 'gift from God'

edited April 2014 in General

"The Internet, in particular, offers immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity," Francis said. "This is something truly good, a gift from God."

Beyond  reason is the continuing theft of science by a supernatural being that apparently has nothing to do with the application of human intelligence and the result of centuries of research. The simple statement from Pope Francis that the internet is a 'gift' from God reminds me of fundamentalists who put oil and gas in their cars, faithful churchgoers with new hip replacments or laser eye surgery, and terrorists who learn to fly airplanes into buildings. 

How do you even begin to counter this absurity? The casual arrogance of dismissing the hundreds of thousands of human hours put into creating and developing the internet as a supernatural 'gift' is a slap in the face of science. 

Further, if you accept that claim that  science is a gift from God, how can you deny science when it shows the age of the earth, the evolution of species and the impossibility of rising from the dead?
