The Peace of God to all that belong to the light,
Every body knows about the so controversial Religious debate that has existed in between defenders and contradictors of the Evolution theory, that is
in the core of what at present is already accepted as evident in Biological sciences.
Since the times of the Victorian era , when Darwin launched the evolution principles, the most important of which is natural selection, there were
many criticisms attacking his theory, primarily coming from religious circles.
While in the Protestant world it is almost universally condemned evolution as an atheist vision of science, and in America the hard core
fundamentalist Christian Evangelical region of the south is leading such position, it is interesting to see that since 1930s, the Roman Catholic
church, that is the biggest Christian Congregation of the world has been doing important efforts to conciliate the findings of biological science with
the Holy scriptures.
Well, finally the His Holiness the Pope Francis I has done the definitive step to embrace evolution as something acceptable from the point of view of
Theology and has openly declared that also the Big Bang Theory is not contradicting the existence of a God Creator.
Here the so historic declaration of the Holy father about this so important topics:
"God is not a divine being or a magician, but the creator who brought everything to life," the Pope said Monday in an address to a gathering on
"Evolving Concepts of Nature," hosted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. "Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation,
because evolution requires the creation of things that evolve."
here the links of the media reporting such transcendental Historic public declaration:
It is important, however, to mention that since 1950's H.H. Pope Pius XII opened the door to big bang and evolution as theories
that deserved to be studied carefully by the Church with open mind. H.H. Pope Benedict XVI pointed that Intelligent design is a very important tool
to understand the real limits of the evolution theory.
I am wondering what can be the reaction of:
1) The most extreme enemies of evolution that still exist in this country and that are transmitting dozens of hours weekly, on religious organizations
paid TV channels, to continue a battle that at the light of this declaration seems to be absurdt? or
2) What might be the one of fundamentalist atheists that have used evolution, also through their own media , as a supposedly formidable weapon
against the beliefs in God for decades trying to convince us that we are the result of really improbable accidents happened without any direction or
I really buy just only one minute of the thoughts about this declaration of people like Tom Cruise, James Randi, Joe Nickel from one side or the one
of Kirk Cameron or John Hagee from the other.
Thanks for your attention,
