Hey Rratzinger, that’s a good one, reality is important, I couldn’t agree more. But you forget a few more “realities” that you should mention:
How about not lying about condoms and AIDS?
Better yet, what about NOT COVERING UP THE RAPING OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN ALL OVER THE WORLD?
Yes, your concern is totally commendable! Thank you.
New technologies confuse reality and fiction: Pope

Pope Benedict XVI said today that the media’s increasing reliance on images, fuelled by the endless development of new technologies, risked confusing real life with virtual reality.
“New technologies and the progress they bring can make it impossible to distinguish truth from illusion and can lead to confusion between reality and virtual reality,” the pope said.
This is priceless. Chilean Miner completely disregards the months of straining, relentless efforts by the real heroes – the rescue staff – after finally getting freed; God rescued him, thank God! Right.
Of course, he never asked why God let him get trapped in the first place. Wonderful!
The 15th man trapped for more than two months in a Chilean mine was pulled to safety Wednesday as the sounds of rejoicing filled the camp in the Chilean desert where hundreds of international media were holding vigil along with family members of 33 gold and copper miners entombed half a mile below ground.
“I never doubted. I always knew God would rescue us,” Mario Sepulveda, the second miner to be rescued, said in a television interview.
Great bloody stuff from the book of Love and Peace.
Lawrence Krauss at the Atheist Alliance International 2009, gives a talk on our current picture of the universe, how it will end, and how it could have come from nothing. Krauss is the author of many bestselling books on Physics and Cosmology, including “The Physics of Star Trek.”
This is, by far, the best talk I’ve had the pleasure to listen to. It is a bit long so, if you don’t have much time to listen to the whole talk now, at least listen to this excerpt, it’s just one minute long.
