First of all, I think it is a great question. Jayron, it was not meant as a troll.
Second of all, it IS ironic if there are lightning rods on the vatican, or any other church/religious establishment for that matter. And yes, i don’t respect religion. If god is worth praying to, then he surely wouldn’t strike his number one place of worship with lightning.
And despite what you say, the church, especially the catholic church, does NOT condone science or rationality. Only faith. The idea that the vatican could ever be struck with lighting seems heretical, and i’m sure in ages past they would have burned anyone at the stake who even mentioned the notion of lightning striking the vatican.
Gee, i wonder if you are a catholic - if so, then i think it’s YOU who needs to grow up.
In the meantime, you’re flaming has done nothing to help me find the answer to the question, which is the ultimate purpose of this message board. I’ve done some research, and so far i cant find PROOF that there are realy lightning rods up there. But if there are, then i’d say that’s a good blow to theopaths everywhere.
