Utterly bemused

The SMH thinks that it’s pretty funny. PZ Myers wonders why we even care. The Indigestible has my favourite post title on the matter – Welcome to 1050.

I don’t normally comment on this sort of thing, because I just cannot comprehend anything about it. I cannot fathom how in the year 2006, a so-called authority can make mediaeval proclamations with a straight face. More worryingly, I don’t understand why millions of people choose to live by doctrines which are utter, total made-up nonsense. When I do think about it, I get quite depressed.
