The Vatican and Evolution
"The faithful have the obligation to listen to that which secular modern science has to offer, just as we ask that knowledge of the faith be taken in consideration as an expert voice in humanity."
-Cardinal Paul Poupard
Pontifical Council for Culture

A truly fascinating (albeit short) report from the Science, Theology and Ontological Quest 2005 Conference on Yahoo news delivered that little gem above along with:

"A hypothesis asks whether something is true or false," he said. "(Evolution) is more than a hypothesis because there is proof."
-Monsignor Gianfranco Basti
Director, STOQ

I think I might register to receive the conference proceedings as the speakers and lecture subjects look very interesting:

Infinity, Contingency, and God: Between Cosmology and Theology.

A Republican in San Francisco (Yes, he's under deep cover) relays his tales of interest... ...ok, "interest" is a strong and subjective word but you get the point.

I shall know but one country. The ends I aim at shall be my country's, my God's and Truth's. I was born an American; I live an American; and I shall die an American. -Daniel Webster (1782-1852)
