Maybe I'm confused, but I've always just enclosed the url with angle
brackets <> and it automatically becomes a clickable link displaying
the url as the clickable text. Since I only use the php version of
markdown, maybe that's just a feature there, but it works for me.

Once there was a time when all people believed in God and the church
ruled. This time is called the Dark Ages.
