Maybe I shouldn’t be, but I’m floored by this request by the Catholic Church: “the faithful should listen to what secular modern science has to offer, and warned that religion risks turning into ‘fundamentalism’ if it ignores scientific reason.”
Wow, that hits the nail on the head. It very concisely describes the fundamentalism going on in some American religious circles.
Also, on the topic of “Intelligent Design” vs. Evolution, the Vatican says “‘Evolution is more than a hypothesis because there is proof.”
It’s good to hear people using their heads.
