According to Pope Ratzinger, technology makes it difficult to distinguish reality from fiction:
"New technologies and the progress they bring can make it impossible to distinguish truth from illusion and can lead to confusion between reality and virtual reality," the pope said.
"The image can also become independent from reality, it can give birth to a virtual word, with various consequences–above all the risk of indifference towards real life," he said.
"Impossible to distinguish truth from illusion"? "The risk of indifference towards real life"? Now what major world religion/corrupt gang of mobsters does that remind me of...?
