(CNN) – Its art collection is the envy of galleries the world over, but until now the Vatican has been better known for Renaissance masterpieces rather than hip modernist artworks.
That may be about to change: the home of the Catholic Church has announced it will exhibit at the ultra-fashionable Venice Biennale for the first time later this year.
In a bold move away from the works of Michelangelo, Rafael and Giotto for which it is renowned, the Holy See picked Italian new media art collective Studio Azzurro, Czech-French photographer Josef Koudelka, and Australian-born U.S. painter Lawrence Carroll to interpret its chosen theme.
But the subject itself is one of the oldest and most traditional: the pavilion, inspired by Genesis, the first book of the Bible, is entitled "In the Beginning."

Prayer changes things
Prayer does not; you are such a LIAR. You have NO proof it changes anything! A great example of prayer proven not to work is the Christians in jail because prayer didn't work and their children died. For example: Susan Grady, who relied on prayer to heal her son. Nine-year-old Aaron Grady died and Susan Grady was arrested.
An article in the Journal of Pediatrics examined the deaths of 172 children from families who relied upon faith healing from 1975 to 1995. They concluded that four out of five ill children, who died under the care of faith healers or being left to prayer only, would most likely have survived if they had received medical care.
The statistical studies from the nineteenth century and the three CCU studies on prayer are quite consistent with the fact that humanity is wasting a huge amount of time on a procedure that simply doesn’t work. Nonetheless, faith in prayer is so pervasive and deeply rooted, you can be sure believers will continue to devise future studies in a desperate effort to confirm their beliefs!

Fourteen Closely Related Crocodiles Existed Around 5 Million Years Ago
May 21, 2013 — Today, the most diverse species of crocodile are found in northern South America and Southeast Asia: As many as six species of alligator and four true crocodiles exist, although no more than two or three ever live alongside one another at the same time. It was a different story nine to about five million years ago, however, when a total of 14 different crocodile species existed and at least seven of them occupied the same area at the same time, as an international team headed by paleontologists Marcelo Sánchez and Torsten Scheyer from the University of Zurich is now able to reveal.

Dec. 5, 2012 — Researchers have discovered what may be the earliest dinosaur, a creature the size of a Labrador retriever, but with a five foot-long tail, that walked the Earth about 10 million years before more familiar dinosaurs like the small, swift-footed Eoraptor and Herrerasaurus.

What's up with the hands? Creepy.... Are they the hands that abuse little boys or the hands that hire someone to kill their wife?
Both and the hands also pass around the collection plates, Roman Catholic Cash Flow Church. Wonder what the admission charge will be to view that junk and how many suckers they will draw?
From the article:
"But the subject itself is one of the oldest and most traditional: the pavilion, inspired by Genesis, the first book of the Bible, is ent-itled "In the Beginning."
Now for some 21st century reality:
Adam and Eve are myths making original sin mythological and Christian Baptism symbolic. (Also taught in graduate theology classes at many major Catholic universities).
I bet the coffee is good.
It kind of reminds me of that Queen album cover, but with hands, not faces.
I can't say that I"m much impressed.
You're so right it does look like the Queen album cover. Too funny.
I think something is missing from above masterpiece – a naked women.
i think you mean little boys.
I bet you both have a sound proof room somewhere in your house and a van with tinted windows.
Somebody is getting angry and I think it is the religitard with the lack of integrity. Yep.
And I love how all these religious people are here with me in Hell. There is no god here. Gnash, gnash, sob, sob.
HAA HAA :D
There is no god there? So it is the same as everywhere on Earth then, no god here either.
46 When he listens to the message of creation and to the voice of conscience, man can arrive at certainty about the existence of God, the cause and the end of everything.
47 The Church teaches that the one true God, our Creator and Lord, can be known with certainty from his works, by the natural light of human reason (cf. Vatican Council I, can. 2, § 1: DS 3026).
You could as easily be deceived and you'd never know the difference.
Tom, lovely cryptic response!
God is truth absolute, one need not to have a reason to know truth absolute GOD, but to be with truth absolute GOD with HIS way, because essence of Spirit, foundation for a human to be, is none other than truth Absolute GOD.
Tom is correct. Without verifying that you are being told the truth, all your sandcastles melt away in the cold light of reason.
Anyone can make any claim and be believed.
Where is the proper discernment to protect your soul? Grasping at imaginary straws will not actually save you.
Insecure souls now doubtful about where they would spend eternity? I would if were in those shoes. Questions to ask yourself before it too late!
You trust ancient tribal shamans to guide you and save your soul?
HA HA HA HA HA!
"Just in case they are right, I will go to church" HA HA HA HA HA!
"I don't care if they are lying, I just want to be with my family."
"I don't want to know the truth, this faith of mine is all I need."
"If Jesus is real, then I can do any evil and be forgiven."
"My soul is in danger, so I will go to the first con-artist I see and place my whole life, heart, and soul in his loving, lying hands."
Denying and laughter ain't getting you nowhere, hasn't gotten anybody anywhere. If I were you I would seriously seek out the truth before it is too late.
Seek out Why, when truth absolute is in you, can not exist without HIM, disrupt constant, truth of your breath, and see if you can survive, because no one and none can exist with constant, truth absolute, and truth absolute is THE GOD in you.
Please read without.
Dale, at what part of the process does one check to see if any of it is true?
Do you make phone calls to psychics to get your future told to you? Why or why not?
Please read with out my help too.
Right after one listens to words of others, if they conform to the constant, truth absolute of words spoken or not.
I did ask myself, Dale. That's when I realized that since there was no proof that any god or afterlife actually exists, it's kind of silly to worry about it. Once I realized that my life is finite, and that my earthly death is also my final death, I decided that my life is too precious to waste on such irrational nonsense as gods, afterlifes or religion.
Did you read my post? What part you don't under stand?
3 Those who with God’s help have welcomed Christ’s call and freely responded to it are urged on by love of Christ to proclaim the Good News everywhere in the world. This treasure, received from the apostles, has been faithfully guarded by their successors. All Christ’s faithful are called to hand it on from generation to generation, by professing the faith, by living it in fraternal sharing, and by celebrating it in liturgy and prayer.6
Great intro to the prologue of the church.
Great intro to a Catholic gay bar, you mean.
Took you long enough? Dang you're slow.
So sad to see a troll like Swain come stumbling through here.
He can't quite make it over those big ole hurdles of honesty and ethics.
What's wrong with you, Swain?
Did they lie to you when you were a kid and you just snapped, or what?
I'm just a troll using multiple names to look for attention. I have no reason to be here and really don't care about any of the topics. Woo-wee, look at me.
Yep, traumatized as a child by liars using lies, that's Swain. Thinks it means anything to post here. LOL
So ironic to see a liar lying to hisself. It's like watching a snake swallow its tail.
1 God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church. To accomplish this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life.
The life of man to know and love God
When the Vatican is destroyed, what will you say?
The time of death for your religion is approaching faster as your religion gets shredded by reality every day more and more.
I am finding it hard to wait. Please help everyone in the world by finding something else to do. Your religion is fakery.
The Vatican won't be destroyed within our lifetime so no one will be saying anything you twit.
Christianity is the largest religion in the world currently. Pretty much one in every seven people on the planet is a Christian. No child, it isn't going anywhere for a long time. No matter how much faith you have.
Finding it hard to wait? You sound like a child two weeks before Christmas.
The Vatican will be destroyed. It is guaranteed to be a matter of time. I probably won't see it, but I am glad to know it will happen someday. The RCC will be shredded by angry mobs and none shall hide thee from the righteous anger of the people.
"The Vatican will be destroyed."
If it is, it won't be from any supposed enlightened revolutions you may think will happen.
"It is guaranteed to be a matter of time."
I guess you could say that just like one could say entropy will win out in the end. But neither means that religion was wrong.
"I probably won't see it, but I am glad to know it will happen someday."
Your hope is almost of a spiritual nature isn't it?
"The RCC will be shredded by angry mobs and none shall hide thee from the righteous anger of the people."
Highly doubtful since there never has been an angry mob ever form that could even shred up a 10th of the RCC's population.
Reality, now there's a can of industrial strength worms to hook up with!
What a laugh. The RCC is already crumbling. The rot has reached the surface where everyone can see it.
The Vatican is nothing but a chimera. A grimy paper covered in scribbles clenched in the fist of psychopaths.
You say it will last forever simply because a bunch of ignorant idiots pop out children like a clown car?
One day it will all be over. I don't care what you think about it. It will happen regardless of both of us.
I am not against the people but against the lies. The lies are further proof that no god exists with the attributes described by the RCC.
In time, this will be so well-known and obvious that no one will even consider remaining in the RCC.
Numbers don't mean squat.
You can waste your life for a hollow promise of paradise after you die all you want, Ben. I prefer to respect my life, to enjoy each day and to learn as much as I can about the world around me.
