I'm getting 5-to-4 odds on tomorrow

The pope has been given the last rites. Who's got him in the pool?

Update: Herr Goebbels has informed me that the pope's death ceremony includes chanting his birth name three times (in her words "Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! BEETLEJUICE!") and hitting him on the head three times with a tiny golden hammer. And then Fox News will show hours upon hours of photos of him when he was young, virile, and attractive.

I'd bet you are right. I feel like we are going to hell just talking about it :)

I always suspected you were a Monophysite, but never thought you were a Marsilian.

I googled those words, and I still don't know what they mean. How are we even in the same field of study?

Monophysite (from wikipedia):
Monophysitism (from the Greek monos meaning 'one' and physis meaning 'nature') is the christological position that Christ has only one nature, as opposed to the Chalcedonian position which holds that Christ has two natures, one divine and one human.

Marsilian:
The basic Marsilian premise, derived from an Averroistic interpretation of Aristotle, was the unity of the state, as forbidding the organization of human life into two distinct societies, spiritual and temporal. Within this one state there is one sovereign, whose authority is absolute and all-embracing: “It admits of no limitation whatsoever. His ‘sovereign’ is not bound by the law of nature, and freely disposes of the law of God

Ok, so... what does "Averroistic" mean?
