Irony, like god, is dead

A Vatican astronomer, while decrying intelligent design, had this to say:
"Religion needs science to keep it away from superstition and keep it close to reality," Brother Consolmagno said-- "to protect it from creationism, which at the end of the day is a kind of paganism."

Yeah, without creationism there's no superstition at all in religion. Purely rational, it is. How could anyone ever doubt the existence of an invisible wish-granting beefed-up Santa Claus in the clouds?
