'Evolution is God's redundancy notice, his pink slip.'
Is Christianity incompatible with the theory of Evolution? Is there no need, no place for God, now that science can explain our origins?
Pope John Paul II once said that
'…evolution [is] more than a hypothesis…. The convergence in the results of these independent studies—which wasneither planned nor sought—constitutes in itself a significant argument in favor of the theory.'
Was this a change of position and an accommodation to facts of science that no longer could be ignored?
