Yeah, that old favorite; Mr. Wright enters the fray again over at his blog, in a rather long and detailed post asking if science fiction is inherently opposed to religion.

Because this is the internet, the comments rather quickly head into attacking religion (ours and his, specifically), which he answers by explaining in detail the reasons he’s now Catholic.

I was inspired to post what is mostly a “hey, go read this!” after several great comments by folks other than the author, culminating in this one:

 If some earnest scientist did the experiment outlined above, and then said to the nearest Catholic (not even going as high as the Pope) “I have conclusively proven that what you say happens during the celebration of the Eucharist does not, since this sample still has the same qualities of wine after the words of institution were spoken as it did beforehand, and so it has not turned into the blood of an Iron-Age Semitic male from Roman-occupied Galilee, and so all your beliefs are false and God does not exist”, then the Catholic would say “Dude, I *know* that already. We talked about it back in the 13th century, even before they had spectrometers or chromatographs: Tommy A gave a definition of transubstantiation where he puts it in the technical philosophical language of “The accidents remain the same but the essence changes”.

 “Yeah, five years. If we had five years, the Lord working through Bergoglio in five years could make the Church over again.”

  Pat Caddell has passed away at age 68.  He went from being Jimmy Carter’s wunderkind pollster in 1976 to supporting Trump


  1. Thanks ,Foxfier. The author’s own conversion, which shows up at about comment three, is more interesting than the actual blog post in my humble opinion. When you call God out, he answers…loudly. Couldn’t read all the comments because I have little patience for atheists, buy what a story.

  2. If you have time, head back and just skip the ones by “Sith Lord Whatever.” He takes several paragraphs to say things that are then quoted in a nutshell in the response. He’s obnoxious, but I am glad that he goaded Mr. Wright into posting more detail on his conversion than he previously has– I knew the broad strokes, but not details.

    I’m really glad I didn’t need a conversion, myself. I don’t know if I’d be lucky enough to slip in, or need the holy boot to the head.
