    @jdalrymple Apple has best quarter ever (13B profit) and loses more stock value than Google after it's 10B loss. Makes perfect sense...in Bizzaro world.

      @lukei4655 they were our most recent human ancestors. Their DNA survived and everyone has a copy of it. That fact causes problems for a historical Adam/Eve who were the only ones around and caused death/decay for rest of creation.

        @lukei4655 theology must be informed by science, and hence, is concerned. The distinction between scientific Adam/Eve and historical people is false. Galileo was condemned for teaching heresy "contrary to Scripture and the Roman church".

          @lukei4655 ok. Agree to disagree. Scientific "Adam" and "Eve" lived thousands of years apart. And though their lines survived, they weren't the only humans around at the time. This is as certain as heliocentrism.

            @lukei4655 that's not stated in the text. restricting that to human death is a bit of a stretch. The Church teaches that humans preceded death. It's our new Galileo affair.

                It's encouraging to know that my idea for an app has no predecessors in the App Store. #dev

                    @chriskrycho but at least you did a science. I've got 6 yrs of philosophy and theology under my belt. But also a lot of tinkering since I was a kid plus some computer experience in the Air Force.

                      Wondering how many full-time developers got into it after studying something else in college. #dev

                            @lukei4655 the bit about humans causing death and the bondage of decay of creation. According to science, death existed on earth before humans did. Rather than causing death, humans wouldn't be here without it.

                              @wickedgood I unlocked one last night: put a vomiting/choking 16 month old little girl to bed with you and then move into a house the next day on no sleep.

                                @lukei4655 that's interesting, but the issue is with what the Church teaches. Par 400 of the CCC is contradicted by science, isn't it?

                                  In a related story, Phil Robertson fired himself for eating bacon and working on Saturday.

                                    @lukei4655 agreed that science can't test metaphysics. So, the Church should teach that humans caused death and suffering on earth in light of evolutionary theory, which holds that death preceded humans?

                                      @lukei4655 Should the Church update it's teaching on Original Sin as the explanation for physical evil in light of modern science?
