Is Cardinal Confused on Origins?

I have seen this confusion again and again amoungst leaders in the Catholic church.  They try to side with evolution and with creationism.  If you define evoulion as purposeless, naturalistic evolution (with no designer involved) like the hardcore evolution crowd does, the two can not coexist.

PARIS (Reuters) – A senior Roman Catholic cardinal seen as a champion of "intelligent design" against Darwin’s explanation of life has described the theory of evolution as "one of the very great works of intellectual history."

Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn said he could believe both in divine creation and in evolution because one was a question of religion and the other of science, two realms that complimented rather than contradicted each other.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.

    Actually, I find this encouraging for myself. But I’ve always believed that evolution played a hand in creation. I’ve never believed that it was either one or the other, I’ve always felt it was both together.
