Scientists, Theologians Meet at the Vatican on Evolution

Hosted by

god_after_darwin.jpgThe Roman Catholic Church has challenged scientific discoveries over the years, but has never repudiated Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Some Protestant denominations have though, and the recent prominence of “creationism” and “intelligent design” has given some Catholics pause. Starting today, the Vatican is holding a conference, at which scientists and theologians have gathered with the specific goal of affirming that Christian faith and modern science are not at odds but completely compatible. John Haught, Professor Emeritus of Theology at Georgetown University, is author of God after Darwin: A Theory of Evolution.
