Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

About that Last Pope

Just a few weeks after I blogged about it, Rand Simberg also speculated about the last Pope. Is there some way my priority can be recognized?

By the way, I recently came across a really odd claim related to the last Pope. The Prophecy of the Popes according to Saint Malachy gave a list of future Popes with a brief characterization of each. The present Pope is the next to last.

Twilight Zone theme …

Actually, the present pope is almost certainly last on Malachy's original list. From what a brief survey could find for me, it seems that the overwhelming evidence is that the pope after this one was added by someone else at a much later date.

I actually wrote to Rand Simberg about this when he first put that piece up, and meant to blog about it on NeoWarmonger, but got busy and forgot to.
