Does this mean that

Vatican authorities regarding philosophy have determined that Creationism and ID are not “rational philosophy and theology”, whatever that means!

Catholic News Service reports:

Speakers invited to attend a Vatican-sponsored congress on the evolution debate will not include proponents of creationism and intelligent design, organizers said.

The Pontifical Council for Culture, Rome’s Pontifical Gregorian University and the University of Notre Dame in Indiana are organizing an international conference in Rome March 3-7 as one of a series of events marking the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin’s “The Origin of Species.”

Jesuit Father Marc Leclerc, a philosophy professor at the Gregorian, told Catholic News Service Sept. 16 that organizers “wanted to create a conference that was strictly scientific” and that discussed rational philosophy and theology along with the latest scientific discoveries.

Unlike too many light-headed politicians in the US, Canada and the UK, the Vatican, or an authoritative part of it, considers Creationism and ID to be “irrational”. Now that has a heavy sound!

  1. Now there’s a sign of weakness if I ever saw it. It’s a pity the Catholic Church doesn’t even have the spine to stand for truth. What a slap in the face.
