    This is the only reason for the rest of us to care; we need not share the faith to do so.

    It behooves him to worry about what his millions of church members think. There are many who will follow his example, for good or for ill.

In 9th grade I was considered smrt because I took advanced biology. I believe some people in public schools are still taking earth science in the 9th grade.
    It seems we have had this discussion before. Your estimates of Catholic education are much exaggerated. As anecdotal evidence, I was raised Catholic, and out of the many priests I have known, only one had a PhD. He was a professor at the local seminary who came to say one of the many Sunday masses at our parish. Conversely, I work with many PhDs, and there are very few Catholics among them outside of the local catholic college. Catholics make up a much larger percentage of our management, though.

    As for learning physics in 9th grade, unless one is also learning calculus, it is better considered "physics appreciation". Physics concepts can be found even in the elementary curriculum. The name alone does not say much about the demands or difficulty of the class.

    Let me try to give you another reason:

    It is a truism because it is true: "the history of Europe is the history of the Church". And the Church in question is the Roman Catholic Church, headed by the Pope for two thousand years.

    And you are a son of Europe. And for a son not to know the history of his parent over the last three thousand years is negligent.

    The reason you should care for the Pope is to care for and understand yourself.

    Sloppy, sloppy.

    Europe is much older than the Catholic Church, so their histories coincide only to a point.

    You are assuming much about my personal background. Perhaps I do know my "parent" much better than you think.

    I care about understanding the Pope because of his potential to influence the world at large.

    Socrates was born in 469 BC, so Europe only goes back 500 years before Catholicism.

    And Europe has influenced the whole world already. It is quite impossible to understand the influence of Europe without understanding the influence of the Pope.

    Perhaps your mind is under the influence of Protestant Capitalists.

    Come on, I am talking about the culture of Europe.

    And the culture of Europe is based on Ancient Greek Philosophy, Judaism, Christianity and the Enlightenment. So it's about 3,000 years old.

    How deracinated. Read this -

    When we can't identify with our own culture, we are deracinated.

    And the deracinated mind is the homeless mind.

    And the homeless mind is driven back to narcissistic fantasy.

    And how appropriate in the make-believe world of mbti.

    In Victor's worldview, Philosoraptor gave birth to Socrates.
