MESSAGE TO THE PONTIFICAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES: ON EVOLUTION Pope John Paul II The Great (excerpt)
"...Today, more than a half-century after the appearance of that encyclical, some new findings lead us toward the recognition of evolution as more than an hypothesis.* In fact it is remarkable that this theory has had progressively greater influence on the spirit of researchers, following a series of discoveries in different scholarly disciplines. The convergence in the results of these independent studies—which was neither planned nor sought—constitutes in itself a significant argument in favor of the theory...."
WIKI: "On 22 October 1996, in a speech to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences plenary session at the Vatican, Pope John Paul II declared the evolutionary theories of Charles Darwin as factual, and wholly compatible with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church."
This is not a political discussion board. The thread posed a simple question - which I answered simply.
Res Ipse Loquitor - "The thing speaks for itself". Drop it.
Res ipsa loquitur by the way!
Just like you said, this is not a political discussion board and it's not going to become one. We've had problems before with this kind of situations, before you know it members start to act embarrasingly (these images are a proof of that, and that explains the need to erase them), so we've decided that we're going to avoid any kind of political comments.
