I am not a Catholic but as I understand it the Catholics do not disagree with science, evolution etc. They just say that God was responsible for the
big bang and everything which followed naturally was attributable to God.
Is this correct? I know a few Catholics chimed in. Please let me know if I got this right?
I also agree that faith need not conflict with science. Though I am not religious I come from a family who practice an eastern spiritual philosophy
(Buddhism) and there is no conflict with life out there within it nor Hinduism.
I always saw the conflict between science and religion a mostly western one which made little sense.
Science at its core helps us understand the natural universe.
Religion at its core is supposed to help us understand ourselves and that which is beyond the natural universe (gods, spirits, etc).
The two can, and should be able to coexist in that context.
