Did Houdini just get the ultimate namecheck?

You may have seen headlines lately that read: "Pope: God isn't like Houdini." Did Pope Francis really just namecheck the King of Handcuffs?

If we move past the headline, it appears the Pope's actual quote during his address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences was: "When we read about creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so. He created human beings and let them develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one so they would reach their fulfillment."

So it looks like the newspapers changed the Pope's "magician" into the #1 magician, and that's just fine by me!

The photo above shows Pope Francis working his magic act in Rome.
