He's pretty old, looks like they didn't want to elect a Pope that would be around for too long a time.

It's gonna take some time to get used to saying Pope Benedict instead of John Paul.

I'm a bit concerned personally. Apparently he's conservative and I don't think that's what the church needs today. It's losing Latin America because it doesn't seem to be in touch with today's reality.

Not that I necessarily believe in it, but isn't this supposed to be the second last Pope according to Nostradamus? And isn't his time as Pope supposed to be short?

He was in the Hitler youth. He was conscripted as were most boys in Germany during that time. His father was an adamant anti-Nazi.

If we listen to Nostradamus then the world should have been over by now :dontcare:

Not necessarily, we could misinterpret things and timelines, or he could have things right but timelines wrong. It would be good of you if you could provide a full translation of his writings. I'll wait :hopefull:

:tongue:

nostradamus and his "predictions" are an incredible waste of time, and equally astounding that such myths have survived.

Good luck to the Pope for the duration of his pontificate.

ambis, you were misinformed. That was a hoax e-mail making rounds on the net, there was never any such prediction by Nostradamus in any of his poems.

Of nostradumus' 1,000+ "predictions", none have come true. Not one.


Some may have been interpreted as being accurate, but only with the luxury of hindsight and a retrospective stance by hard-core "believers".
