Pope sends first tweet, launching new Vatican site

By Richard Allen Greene, CNN

(CNN) - Twitter has welcomed a new user - one who already has more than one billion followers.

Pope Benedict XVI used Twitter to announce the launch of a new Vatican website, timed to coincide with Wednesday's 60th anniversary of his ordination as a priest.

The website, News.va, showed a photo of the pope with what appeared to be an iPad.

"The pope sent it, but it was prepared for him," Benedict's spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, told CNN. "The tablet was presented to him. He did the click and sent the tweet."

It was the pope's first tweet, Lombardi confirmed.

"Dear Friends, I just launched News.va Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI," the message said.

The pope himself may be new to Twitter, but the Vatican has been reasonably web-savvy for years, including launching an iPhone app and a Facebook page for the beatification of Pope John Paul II this year.

Benedict's tweet came on the English news feed for the Vatican, @news_va_en, which picked up about 22,000 new followers after the tweet, nearly tripling its number of followers.

The head of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, previewed the new website on Monday, saying it would bring together all the Vatican news outlets in one place.

At launch, it included a scrolling lead spot that showed the pope sending his tweet and a countdown clock to his his trip to Madrid - for which the Vatican has put up yet another website, Madrid11.com.

Joseph Ratzinger - the pope's name before he assumed the throne of St. Peter - was ordained a priest on June 29, 1951, at the age of 24.

    A tweet for B16:

    The Apostles' Creed 2011: (updated by yours truly based on the studies of NT historians and theologians during the past 200 years)

    I might believe in a god whose existence cannot be proven
    and said god if he/she/it exists resides in an unproven,
    human-created, spirit state of bliss called heaven.

    I believe there was a 1st century CE, Jewish, simple,
    preacher-man who was conceived by a Jewish carpenter
    named Joseph living in Nazareth and born of a young Jewish
    girl named Mary. (Some say he was a mamzer.)

    Jesus was summarily crucified for being a temple rabble-rouser by
    the Roman troops in Jerusalem serving under Pontius Pilate,

    He was buried in an unmarked grave and still lies
    a-mouldering in the ground somewhere outside of
    Jerusalem.

    Said Jesus' story was embellished and "mythicized" by
    many semi-fiction writers. A bodily resurrection and
    ascension stories were promulgated to compete with the
    Caesar myths. Said stories were so popular that they
    grew into a religion known today as Catholicism/Christianity
    and featuring dark-age, daily wine to blood and bread to body rituals
    called the eucharistic sacrifice of the non-atoning Jesus.

    Amen

      Another tweet for B16 and all his "3 B Syndromers" – i.e. Bred, Born and Brainwashed in Christianity:

      From that famous passage: In 1 Corinthians 15 St. Paul reasoned, "If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith."

      Even now Catholic/Christian professors of theology are questioning the bodily resurrection of the simple, preacher man aka Jesus.

      To wit;

      From a major Catholic university's theology professor’s grad school white-board notes:

      "Heaven is a Spirit state or spiritual reality of union with God in love, without earthly – earth bound distractions.
      Jesus and Mary's bodies are therefore not in Heaven.

      Most believe that it to mean that the personal spiritual self that survives death is in continuity with the self we were while living on earth as an embodied person.

      Again, the physical Resurrection (meaning a resuscitated corpse returning to life), Ascension (of Jesus' crucified corpse), and Assumption (Mary's corpse) into heaven did not take place.

      The Ascension symbolizes the end of Jesus' earthly ministry and the beginning of the Church.

      Only Luke's Gospel records it. The Assumption ties Jesus' mission to Pentecost and missionary activity of Jesus' followers The Assumption has multiple layers of symbolism, some are related to Mary's special role as "Christ bearer" (theotokos). It does not seem fitting that Mary, the body of Jesus' Virgin-Mother (another biblically based symbol found in Luke 1) would be derived by worms upon her death. Mary's assumption also shows God's positive regard, not only for Christ's male body, but also for female bodies." "

      "In three controversial Wednesday Audiences, Pope John Paul II pointed out that the essential characteristic of heaven, hell or purgatory is that they are states of being of a spirit (angel/demon) or human soul, rather than places, as commonly perceived and represented in human language. This language of place is, according to the Pope, inadequate to describe the realities involved, since it is tied to the temporal order in which this world and we exist. In this he is applying the philosophical categories used by the Church in her theology and saying what St. Thomas Aquinas said long before him."
      http://eternal-word.com/library/PAPALDOC/JP2HEAVN.HTM

      With respect to rising from the dead, we also have this account:

      o An added note: As per R.B. Stewart in his introduction to the recent book, The Resurrection of Jesus, Crossan and Wright in Dialogue,
      o
      o p.4
      o
      o "Reimarus (1774-1778) posits that Jesus became sidetracked by embracing a political position, sought to force God's hand and that he died alone deserted by his disciples. What began as a call for repentance ended up as a misguided attempt to usher in the earthly political kingdom of God. After Jesus' failure and death, his disciples stole his body and declared his resurrection in order to maintain their financial security and ensure themselves some standing."
      o
      o p.168. by Ted Peters:
      o
      Even so, asking historical questions is our responsibility. Did Jesus really rise from the tomb? Is it necessary to have been raised from the tomb and to appear to his disciples in order to explain the rise of early church and the transcription of the bible? Crossan answers no, Wright answers, yes. "

      o So where are the bones"? As per Professor Crossan's analyses in his many books, the body of Jesus would have ended up in the mass graves of the crucified, eaten by wild dogs, covered with lime in a shallow grave, or under a pile of stones.

      The catholic church has lots of votes, politicians will sqaush laws that would hold those in the catholic church accountable. There is a Bill in New York State that would expose pedos. It never made it out of the codes committee. One of the legislators gave a pedo bishop a plaque praising him, paid for with tax dollars. He was told by a child victim the bishop was a pedo. He instead turns around and squashes a law that would expose the Bishop. Who is he? Senator John Defransisco from of Syracuse NY.

      He did do harm. He was responsible for orchestrating the largest cover ups of child sooodddoommyy. He demanded threats to protect pedoss and the RCC first, over the lives of small children. Many children committed suicide and others mentally ill today. Had he instead done what was right, those children would have been OK. Coping is key, he denied them.

      Most of the cases of abuse occurred in the pontificates of his predecessors. The height of the scandal in 2002 involved the public revelation of abuse cases from decades earlier, and occurred three years before Ratzinger was elected Pope.

      Fine, Scott. You are now a member in good standing in the Church of Deism.

      As for your quickie run through some of the more mysterious and controversial posits of modern science, those cases are quite different. The Higgs boson was posited in order to explain various inequalities amongst subatomic thingies. While the sort of slam dunk confirming observation has not occurred, it has been vigorously sought in a way that no one tries to test for god empirically. Dark matter and dark energy also have been posited to explain certain otherwise inexplicable phenomena. So you could say that even though there have been no direct observations of them, their effects have been seen and are indeed profound, much more so than the fairly subtle stuff used to confirm the presence of a black hole. Again, serious science posited all these things to explain specific phenomena and serious science constantly seeks to confirm or deny their existence. This is not at all like what believers in god, including Deists, do.

      Neither has dark matter, dark energy, the higgs bosen, etc. (I can go on, but you get the gist of this)
      Just because it's a theory formulated to explain something we can't figure out yet doesn't make it inherently wrong. Science is about presenting a explanation that doesn't violate any of the known laws of the Universe, and having it challenged (or confirmed) by new discoveries.

      Here is my theory: God started everything with the Big Bang, and is now just watching to see how his creation unspools. Since we can't see back before the Universe began (yet, probably ever), there's nothing that can prove me right or wrong. Eventually it all boils down to belief.

      June 28, 2011 at 4:33 pm |
    • Stevie7

      @Scott,

      Deriving scientific theories that are testable from observed phenomenon is a bit different than deriving untestable theories from a several millenia old book. Relativity wasn't measurable when Einstein came up with the theory. But Einstein used math, logic, and reasoning to deduce his theories. His theories were also testable and were later validated through direct evidence. Absolutely zero belief was required for any of this.

      The other major difference between science and religion is that science adapts its theories upon new evidence. Most of the time, religion does the opposite – it attempts to reject new discoveries that disagree with its foundations.

      June 28, 2011 at 4:41 pm |
    • Laughing

      @ Scott

      You make some good points however you fail to understand two things. One is that dark matter, higgs boson, et al are theories, god is supposed to be a certainty. Secondly you make it sound like god went BAM, made the universe through the big bang and then just sat back and watched, although the bible clearly states that is false at every turn. God said "Lights!" and then light happened and it sounds like it took him about 6 days to make the earth, not the couple billion years that makes more sense. He's also insinuated himself into human beings lives all the time and frankly always letting his chosen people get picked on.

      I fully agree with the three of you (this was posted after John Richardson's)
      I was just trying to point out that if you cannot empirically prove something true, and it does not violate the known facts, that it is inherently false. The physical hypotheses I mentioned above were just a few things that were applicable to the statement I was responding to, not trying to turn deism into a science. (although, if you think about it, belief in a deity may have been the original scientific hypothesis) I have run the numbers myself on a couple of the above theories (specifically dark matter, in support of some of my classwork) and the observed effects match the calculated.
      There are alternates to every theory that hasn't been empirically proved, and when one is directly observed, the others are cast aside.
      I guess my point is that there isn't enough evidence to just "cast aside" the deity argument yet.

      June 28, 2011 at 5:27 pm |

      noticed how something could be misconstrued: I should've said "cast aside in it's entirety yet."

      @Scott

      While it is true that there are a few (very few?) cases of someone or a group persisting with a theory or a new idea for many years and being told they were wrong, if not crazy, only to eventualy be correct, I am confident that proving the existence of god (any god, pick one!) specifically, and the validity of religion in general, stand alone as having absolutely no proof. In any other case, the idea would have been discarded – centuries earlier!

      @Scott
      "there isn't enough evidence to just "cast aside" the deity argument yet."
      -- Inasmuch as there is NO evidence for the deity argument, it is long past the time to cast it aside.
      -- There will never BE evidence to cast it aside, as that will be proof of a negative, which is logically meaningless.

      Hey Steve, yes, I think you mentioned this once before. You sure? Can you point me to that, becuase I thought they eventually caved on the issue. I hope you are right, as it shows the Catholic faith to be even sillier if you are!!!

      Pius the 12th stated that adam and eve were real people in an ecu.menical. Here's this from catholic.com:

      You're right!! Thanks, I will update it (and I realize this is the second time you have pointed this out and given me the reference -sorry). That is unbelievable in the 21st Century they still think they can tell people they "must" believe this!

      What is even more astounding is that millions will, based on the Papal command. I gues they call their "lord" a shepherd becuase they are unthinking sheep.

      I can tell you from personal experience that this is not taught in catholic biology classes. Likely because you'd have nearly all of your students questioning their faith right away. Why they don't teach what the church teaches in a catholic school is still a bit of a mystery – perhaps they didn't want students to get laughed out of college-level biology courses.

      It would appear some bitter catholics in here have some sway with the moderators. I guess pointing out the hypocrisy and poor logic in someone's faith is against the Terms of Service.

      Do note that Father Gregor Mendel was a monk.

      @C S,

      I'm not sure what you're point it. Mendel studied inheritance. To my knowledge, he didn't do any substantial work on the larger theory of evolution. Even if he did, it wouldn't make the argument that evolution exists, but there was still one man called Adam and one person called Eve that are the mother and father of us all any less utterly illogical.
