Did you know this about Catholics?

In regard to Creation, we cannot believe Polygenism that there were multiple Adams and Eves.

As far as Creation itself goes Catholics believe that however the world and universe as we know it, were created, it was by the hand of God, whether putting anything that happened in motion or full on creating it.
In that aspect Catholics are allowed to believe what makes most sense to them or that which science has discovered.

As far as evolution goes, there is a more nuanced answer. The church allows for an evolutionary type process with the caveat that understanding that God created the soul for each one of us. So, we are allowed to believe anything we like as long as we include in that belief a knowledge that God imbued each and every one of us with a unique and special soul

  • knowing the belief is there already ^, it simply means there is room for personal interpretation..as opposed to being told exactly what, when, how, how much.

    So in other words......you can believe anything you like as long as you believe what you're told to believe.


    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Actually, not that it matters much to you, there are very few doctrines that are defined for us.
