holy hell batman, I'm dumb.

I'm reading a summary of the works of Father Pierre Teilhard Du Chardin, a Jesuit who wrote an extremely controversial series on evolution, celestial mechanics, the nature of consciousness and the evolution of God as an inescapable requirement of existence of matter.
My mind is completely and utterly blown.

Picture completely unrelated, but hilarious. When reading a scientifically justifiable treatise on the unity of science and religion, I respond with dick and fart jokes until I can digest what I'm reading, which should take about 30 years, if I hurry.

If you're interested in the synthesis of science and religion, I highly recommend reading anything by Gerald Schroeder (particularly "The Hidden Face of God").
He makes good reading for the religious and non-religious alike (me being the latter, despite the implications of my nom de plume).

Or, if you're looking for something a bit more heretical, I recommend "The Grand Design" by Stephen Hawking. Its chock full of godless physics.

If I was Stephen Hawking, I'd probably be an athiest too. I'd hate to think that God made me a human pretzel so I could be an inspiration for other people to excel under difficult circumstances. Fuck other people, really.
