crazy christians:'Harry Potter and yoga are evil', says Catholic Church

  1. For most people it is a way of toning the limbs and soothing the stresses of everyday life, but the Catholic Church’s best-known exorcist says yoga is evil.
    Father Gabriele Amorth, who for years was the Vatican’s chief exorcist and claims to have cleansed hundreds of people of evil spirits, said yoga is Satanic because it leads to a worship of Hinduism and “all eastern religions are based on a false belief in reincarnation”.

    Reading JK Rowling’s Harry Potter books is no less dangerous, said the 86-year-old priest, who is the honorary president for life of the International Association of Exorcists, which he founded in 1990, and whose favourite film is the 1973 horror classic, The Exorcist.

    The Harry Potter books, which have sold millions of copies worldwide, “seem innocuous” but in fact encourage children to believe in black magic and wizardry, Father Amorth said.

    “Practising yoga is Satanic, it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter,” he told a film festival in Umbria this week, where he was invited to introduce The Rite, a film about exorcism starring Sir Anthony Hopkins as a Jesuit priest.

    I guess we're only supposed to believe in the magic man in the sky.

    Aha, I finally scored a photo of Pee Drinker after a night on the town.

  4. Luke.... you seriously need help, im really concerned about you. Hopefully its not too late. :( .
  5. Free Thinker is the most obsessed Religious fanatic out here.
    He has made anti-religion into its own religion.

    Anti-Religion: The practice of aggressive intolerance against your neighbors personal beliefs.
    Refusing to accept any possibility of another realm or dimension beyond our five senses.

    There's a lot about religion to be against.
  7. why would any thinking person believe there is another realm in light of the fact that all evidence points to there not being one? isnt the very defination of that superstition?
    Superstition is a belief in supernatural causality: that one event leads to the cause of another without any process in the physical world linking the two events.

    There is SOME truth in that.

    Hey, have you noticed that pookie rhymes with dookie?
  9. In theoretical physics, M-theory is an extension of string theory in which 11 dimensions are identified. Because the dimensionality exceeds that of superstring theories in 10 dimensions, proponents believe that the 11-dimensional theory unites all five string theories (and supersedes them). Though a full description of the theory is not known, the low-entropy dynamics are known to be supergravity interacting with 2- and 5-dimensional membranes.

    This idea is the unique supersymmetric theory in eleven dimensions, with its low-entropy matter content and interactions fully determined, and can be obtained as the strong coupling limit of type IIA string theory because a new dimension of space emerges as the coupling constant increases.

    Drawing on the work of a number of string theorists (including Ashoke Sen, Chris Hull, Paul Townsend, Michael Duff and John Schwarz), Edward Witten of the Institute for Advanced Study suggested its existence at a conference at USC in 1995, and used M-theory to explain a number of previously observed dualities, initiating a flurry of new research in string theory called the second superstring revolution.

    In the early 1990s it was shown that the various superstring theories were related by dualities which allow the description of an object in one super string theory to be related to the description of a different object in another super string theory. These relationships imply that each of the super string theories is a different aspect of a single underlying theory, proposed by Witten, and named "M-theory".
  10. funny you left out this part:

    "proponents believe "
    "Though a full description of the theory is not known"
    " the tangible success of M-theory can be questioned, given its current incompleteness and limited predictive power."

    well i guess with all that great evidence you win. i guess this all means that the religious morons that believe harry potter and yoga is satanic are not "crazy christians".
    just one question. do you believe harry potter and yoga are satanic?
