Next thing you know, the Pope will endorse evolution.
Maybe you already know this, but the Pope came very close to endorsing evolution. One short quotation: "...new knowledge has led to the recognition of the theory of evolution as more than a hypothesis." John Paul II, 1996
Not to mention Pius XII back in 1950 denying that evolution and faith are necessarily a contradiction.
I was being ironic. Pope John Paul was far more accepting of science than American protestant fundamentalists.
I read an article by Stephen Jay Gould a number of years ago about a meeting he and Carl Sagan had with the Pope and a number of cardinals as part of a program on the church and science. The general question from the pope et al was "What is the matter with people in your country?"
I think this may be the article of which Jambo speaks.
Man, I should know that when I pull an 8 year old quote out of thin air someone will go and fact check it. That is indeed the article I was thinking of and I pleased to see that I got as close as I did to remembering it right.<< Home
