Cardinal rebuffs "Intelligent Design"

Evolution in the bible, says Vatican - The Other Side - Breaking News 24/7 -

The vatican taking a modern position? Wow. This doesn't make up for their handling of the sex abuse scandals but it's a positive sign.

THE Vatican has issued a stout defence of Charles Darwin, voicing strong criticism of Christian fundamentalists who reject his theory of evolution and interpret the biblical account of creation literally.
Cardinal Paul Poupard, head of the Pontifical Council for Culture, said the Genesis description of how God created the universe and Darwin's theory of evolution were "perfectly compatible" if the Bible were read correctly.
