Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.

Nah, maths and christianity are inseparable. The kind of maths that says 1 is not actually a prime number but perfectly divisible by 3. :wink:

Aside from the prime slip-up, still a fair point. I mean, there's probably some pretty complicated maths going into how the earth is actually a few thousand years old when information seems to indicate it's several billion years old. And I there was some serious calculations involved when Jesus decided to feed an entire crowd with just a basket of bread.

So, that's the loophole then. No subjects - not even maths - are secular.

You can imagine the argument... "Sure, don't we have an entire book of the Bible dedicated to the subject: Numbers."
