VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican will include discussion of intelligent design in a conference marking the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's
"On the Origin of Species," officials said Tuesday.....
"Organizers of the March 3-7 conference did not explain at a news conference Tuesday why they had decided to include discussion of the view that life
is too complex to have developed through evolution alone, and that a higher power has had a hand in changes among species over time.
"The committee agreed to consider ID as a phenomenon of an ideological and cultural nature, thus worthy of a historic examination, but certainly not
to be discussed on scientific, philosophical or theological grounds," said Saverio Forestiero, a conference organizer and professor of zoology at the
University of Rome."
