@ShaneBird: That's not what you asked :)

comment If every stone of the temple was thrown down how is the Wailing Wall still standing?
Wouldn't a more constructive approach to this verse be to ask "What did Jesus mean?" The current question presupposes a specific (although not necissarily unreasonable) interpretation of the scripture, which not everyone will necissarily hold.

comment Where in the bible does it say that Heaven is entered only after death?
What makes you think that "heaven" and "the kingdom of God" and "where one goes after death" are all the same thing?

comment What is the Catholic Church's understanding of science and of the scientific method?
There are of course many ways one can respond to an established reality (such as the definition of the scientific method, or the definition of a bicameral legislature). One could say "the scientific method is inferior to divine revelation" or "bicameral legislatures are inferior to unicameral legislatures". But these statements don't change one's understanding of the well-established and well-defined terms.

comment What is the Catholic Church's understanding of science and of the scientific method?
Making statements about science is one thing (such as on the morality of certain experiments). Defining the term is quite another. You're asking what the church's understanding of the scientific method is. What does that even mean? The scientific method is clearly defined. Nobody's "view" on it changes anything. As I tried to explain before, it's like asking anyone's view on any other well established reality. There are two possible views: Agreement with the standard definition, or being delusional.

comment What is the Catholic Church's understanding of science and of the scientific method?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the definition of words on which the Catholic church has no bearing.

comment What is the Catholic Church's understanding of science and of the scientific method?
Well, the face value if this particular question is very very low, for the reasons I explained above. I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, and hoping you were trying at some more profound issue, such as a moral application of science as viewed by the Catholic church.

As with many of your questions, it seems you're probably driving at a deeper point. What is that point?

comment What is the Catholic Church's understanding of science and of the scientific method?
My point is that Christian communities don't make a practice of defining terms outside their purview, and they have no business doing so, and even if they did so, nobody would care.

comment Can I project more than 500 verses of Scripture over the course of a year? Or, an entire book of the Bible?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about legal issues.

comment What is the Catholic Church's understanding of science and of the scientific method?
This question doesn't make a lot of sense to me. It's like asking "What is the Catholic Church's understanding of the bicameral legislature system as implemented by the United States Congress?" (Or pick any other random topic.) That is to say their understanding of such a thing is irrelevant both to the thing, and to the church. If the church was silly enough to write their own definition of science (or Congress), it wouldn't change science (or congress). These things are outside the scope of the church. Where they do overlap with the church, this question isn't useful.

comment Is the God of Christianity a just God?
It's not a list question as it's asking for a simple Yes or No answer. But it is probably a truth question.

@Beestocks: That depends on what one means by "correct."

comment In the Gospels, is there any recorded instance of the Pharisees quoting Scripture?
@PaulA.Clayton: Usually the Pharisees and "experts in the law" are mentioned separately, which would suggest to me that they are not lumped together.

comment In the Gospels, is there any recorded instance of the Pharisees quoting Scripture?
My understanding of the Pharisees is not extensive, but their M.O. would almost suggest that they disavowed the literal/historical priesthood.

comment In the Gospels, is there any recorded instance of the Pharisees quoting Scripture?
Do you have a reference to support the idea that the chief priests might have included Pharisees?

comment For Catholics who have expressed concern about Pope Francis and are wary of his pontificate, what are the key issues?
The links you've provided in your question appear to provide answers to your question. I'm not sure exactly what you're hoping for. Are you wondering if someone has done a poll of Catholics to ask "What is your biggest complaint about the Pope?" and you're looking for the top answers?
