Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

QUOTE There is no contradiction between believing in God and empirical science, Pope Benedict told a Rome gathering of eminent scientists including cosmologist Stephen Hawking.
Pope Benedict, who briefly met the wheelchair bound physicist at an event hosted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, described science as the pursuit of knowledge about God's creation, MSNBC reports.
"There is no opposition between faith's understanding of creation and the evidence of the empirical sciences," the pope said.
"Galileo saw nature as a book whose author is God."
Hawking is a guest at the week long event, which will explore the theme: "Scientific Insights into the Evolution of the Universe and of Life."
