There is plenty of incredibly stupid science people. What the roman catholic church is thousands of years of thoughts by humans. Whether you like it or not very intelligent people where in the vatican in that time, understanding. The church is not not some sort of cult group just made up, it has people thinking behind it, and trying to understand. The church had just as many thinkers in it, as any science over the years. No human beings know the truth, but you can be sure the church is as close as the human rational mind is to understanding the unknown from spiritual side of things. They must of collected every single bit of info on what humans believed over thousands of years, and somehow people think they just make up rubbish. Amazing.
