The Pope doesn't like knowledge, either

"Have not money, the thirst for possessions, for power and even knowledge, diverted man from his true destiny?" the pope asked.

So what exactly was man's destiny? To die from smallpox because we didn't have the knowledge to prevent it? Was it to live in ignorance of weather patterns, and have no satellites to track hurricanes and warn people to get out of the way? Was it to live in the metaphorical darkness of not understanding the movement of the planets? Or was it to live in the literal darkness, without electricity, which our knowledge allowed for us to control?

I LOVE KNOWLEDGE! SCREW YOU, BENEDICT!
