Pope Benedict XVI said the debate raging in some countries — particularly the United States and his native Germany — between creationism and evolution was an “absurdity,” saying that evolution can coexist with faith.
The pontiff, speaking as he was concluding his holiday in northern Italy, also said that while there is much scientific proof to support evolution, the theory could not exclude a role by God.
“They are presented as alternatives that exclude each other,” the pope said. “This clash is an absurdity because on one hand there is much scientific proof in favor of evolution, which appears as a reality that we must see and which enriches our understanding of life and being as such.
He said evolution did not answer all the questions: “Above all it does not answer the great philosophical question, ‘Where does everything come from?’”
Benedict also said

the human race must listen to “the voice of the Earth

or risk destroying its very existence.

That has to be one of the most beautiful sentences I’ve ever read. And he has perfectly articulated what I have always believed.
The miracle is not how and what we’ve become ~ it’s how that first pulse of life on earth started.

    This has been Catholic doctrine for quite some time, but it’s refreshing to hear it repeated and spoken so clearly. Maybe there is hope for the Hitler youth after all.

    I just want to know how we find all of the Popes in the pizza.

    Some alien dumped a load of clams here. The rest is history.
