You may want to learn that the Immaculate Conception, which is different from the doctrine of Incarnation, was the creation of OUR old order. Yup, we made up that one, too. OUR old order, the Society of Jesus, was founded by Saint Ignatius of Loyola and Francis Xavier on September 27th, 1540. In 1854, pope Pius IX started the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception with his papal bull Ineffabilis Deus. Before that date, the Immaculate Conception did not exist. A doctrine is a set of beliefs held or taught by a corporation; a belief is a state of the mind, which is not rooted in reality.

I was educated in Catholic schools and spent 6 years at the Petit Seminaire College Saint-Martial, a Jesuit seminary in Port-au-Prince. I am a twice Ordained minister from the Open Ministry Church, and the Universal Life Church The Monastery. I am not religious or an atheist, I enjoy spirituality. Religion, politics and gardening (not necessarily in that order) are my favorite subjects of conversation. Other areas of interest include: Human diversity, criminal and constitutional law (graduated from the police academy CCJST), Africa, ancient history, slavery, automotive technology and research at the GM training Center (Tech I and III), Chrysler Technical Training (BE and T-121).
