Link to Nature Article: “A Pope for Today”
I am not quite sure that this is an indicator of a new bridge between science and the Catholic religion, as suggested by the Facebook poster who I took this link from. The modern Catholic Church is “science friendly,” with respect to some views, such as evolution, as this link describes. However, what I find more interesting is that Nature, a major scientific journal, has decided to write an editorial piece on religion centered on the new Pope. Not much is really known about his scientific views, so I suppose we will have to tune in. Food for thought!
