The biologist E.O.Wilson had a conversation with an unnamed chemist after the Vatican declared that Mary's physically ascendion into heaven was biblical truth. The chemist said, "I can't comment on whether Mary physically ascended into heaven. I wasn't there. I can say that she would have passed out at 30,000 feet."

Unless she was ascending at one hell of a rate of knots, she'd have been lucky to stay conscious much above 15k. And if she was ascending faster, explosive decompression might have been an issue.

Of course, God did it, so it's all fine. It's the church's version of "a wizard did it."

"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use." - Galileo Galilei

"Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have. The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases." - Thomas Jefferson

"Most people will spend their lives doing jobs that they don't particularly enjoy, and will eventually save up enough money to stop doing those jobs just in time to start dying instead. Don't be one of those people. There's a difference between living, and just surviving. Do something that you love, and find someone to love who loves that you love what you do.

It really is that simple.

And that hard.”
